Trigger points – uses the body‘s pressure points to alleviate pain and stiffness, usually done in conjunction with remedial massage. Pressure is applied to the point to remove build up of toxins and waste. In doing this your discomfort will be ease.
Myofascial cupping – traditionally originating from China, can also be used in conjuction with remedial massage. It involves the use of glass or plastic cups that are positioned or glided onto affected muscles or trigger points . The air is removed from the cups either with heat or suction. This process is not painful however you may experience some reddening of bruising of the skin due to congestion of blood flow . The aim of the cups is to lift the connective tissue, loosening any adhesion and enabling blood flow to areas that have been restricted.
