Positional Release Therapy is a form of massage and bodywork used to evaluate and treat the body as a whole by using comfortable, yet specific, positioning of the body to release trigger points that cause pain and discomfort. Trigger points are localized, and somewhat specific, areas found in muscle tissue that are used by therapists to determine the location of dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system that may be causing discomfort. These points are also used to determine when that discomfort has been relieved.
As your massage therapist, once a trigger point is located I will place that specific area of your body into a comfortable position to release the trigger point. According to the exact location of the discomfort, I will hold your body in that position for approximately two minutes. Positional Release Therapy is a great treatment to correct imbalances in the musculoskeletal system, while improving overall health and can be added into your massage at no extra cost.
