What Happens During My Session?

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy involves your participation.  In trigger point therapy, you will be positioned upon the table according to what muscle groups the therapist is testing or treating.  You may be asked to move against resistance or to breathe a certain way.  Do not expect a passive session.  You will move, stretch, and interact with the therapist the entire time.

To begin, we’ll perform a postural evaluation.  Is your neck pulled to one side?  One shoulder held higher than the other?  Are your hips properly aligned?

In addition to postural analysis, we’ll test the range of motion of your muscles.  If movement is restricted, the muscles controlling the affected area are palpated to locate the “trigger point.” 

Your therapy is informed by your medical history, as well as your physical culture – the job you perform, the sports you participate in, even your daily activities.  Each has a significant impact on pain and dysfunction.

Relaxing Back MassageYour pain is then relieved through techniques of compression, myofascial release, corrective tissue biomechanics, and muscle energy techniques.

During your session, you will be fully clothed.  However, shorts and t-shirts are ideal as the therapist will need access to your skin for some myofascial techniques.  Jeans and more restrictive clothing simply make movement, and therefore treatment, more difficult.

Massage Therapy is more about relaxation. The therapist gently moves you or tells you what is needed throughout the session (such as turning over).  Many people just close their eyes and completely relax.

Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, you may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear for your own comfort.  You will undress in privacy, lie on the table, and cover yourself with the sheet.  You will be properly draped at all times to keep warm and comfortable.  Only the area being worked on will be exposed.

Do My Medical Conditions Make a Difference?

Yes.  For that reason, the therapist asks general health questions.  It is very important that you inform the therapist of any health problems and diagnoses you have or any medications you are taking. 

If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or trigger point therapy prior to any session.

                                                          -- Brynn A. Adams

Brynn A. Adams has participated in the CranioSacral Therapy I workshop offered by the Upledger Institute, Inc., an innovative healthcare organization that offers continuing education courses to medical professionals worldwide.   

The course is designed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, who developed CranioSacral Therapy and has taught the technique internationally.   CranioSacral Therapy is used to detect and correct imbalances in the craniosacral system, which may be the cause of sensory, motor or neurological dysfunction.  

The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.  It extends from the bones of the skull, face, and mouth -- which make up the cranium -- down to the sacrum, or tailbone area.   

The therapy has been successfully used to treat headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ pain, chronic fatigue, motor coordination difficulties, eye problems, and central nervous system disorders.  For more information on CranioSacral Therapy, you may contact the Upledger Institute at 800-233-5880.
