5th July 2018
Deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy are effective against pinched nerves.
- Trigger point massage: focuses on specific areas to relieve pain instead of working entire muscle groups. It pinpoints the exact problem spots makes use of deep pressure to coax and relax them. It loosens tight areas and relieves muscle pain and injuries it focuses on relieving even the minutest knots that cause tension in the body. Toxins often accumulate in certain regions of the body. Trigger point massage locates trigger points and applies pressure which often travels to an entirely different part of the body and causes relief.
- Deep tissue massage: involves the application of pressure on specific trouble points. The troubled muscles are pushed into, often far down to the bone. It is often preferred by athletes who undergo strenuous muscle workouts. It could leave you feeling sore after an intense session but is a very specific and effective methodical treatment.
