One of the instigators of pain is a trigger point. Trigger points are a tight irritated point in a taught band of muscle fiber characterized by referral pain and tenderness to the touch. Trigger points are developed either acutely, by an isolated incidence of injury, or chronically, repetitive use of the same muscles or actions, creating tightness and dysfunction in the muscle. The body will bear down and tighten anytime the threat of injury is present. It will remain in that state until it is released and can get back to functioning normally.
So why am I telling you all of this? The basis of these trigger points are the focus of my practice. By using direct pressure it can alleviate these points of congestion and pain. Once the muscle begins to relax, blood flow can return to the area of tightness allowing oxygen and nutrients to heal and return to normal function. This process is not always comfortable, but necessary in order to keep the body at homeostasis (aka it’s home base or normal function) and refrain from injury.
I want to work with you to get you back to what you enjoy doing. I utilize different techniques based on what's going on with your body, so you won't see any upcharges for some fancy name of a technique. For the first appointment, we take the time to go through your history, what's currently ailing you, and a treatment plan. After that initial appointment and consultation, I offer 3 different appointment times that you can book based on what your body needs that day.
