Trigger Point Massage Therapy

Trigger Point Massage Therapy

New Serenity Spa, Sonora Village Plaza, Scottsdale, AZ.


Trigger point massage is one of several types of massage we offer at New Serenity Day Spa. This massage is also known myofascial trigger point therapy, because it works on the myofascial sheath that surrounds your muscles, rather than on the muscles themselves.

Trigger points are most commonly known as muscle knots. They are painful areas that show up in muscles.  These areas can be active or inactive. Active trigger points cause pain. Inactive trigger point don’t cause pain, however, they can become active due to stress, tension or movements.  Trigger point massage therapy uses pressure on the knots in the muscle to relieve the pain, throughout the body.

Trigger points can appear in a muscle for several reason: fibromyalgia, injuries, awkward motion, poor posture…

At New Serenity Spa, our massage therapist are trained to relieve the tension and pain that happens when trigger points are present in muscles.
