Human/Canine Trigger Point & Massage Therapy

Post-Trigger Point Therapy Suggestions

TO INCREASE THE BENEFITS OF YOUR SESSION AND DECREASE DISCOMFORT:

  • Drink lots of water and avoid caffeine and alcohol for the rest of the day.
  • Soak in epsom salt to help minimize next-day soreness.  Be sure to rinse off the salt afterwards to prevent the reabsorption of lactic acid and other toxins.
  • Trigger points can continue releasing for up to 72 hours after the session.  So even though you can compete straight off the table, by resting/not stretching the muscles for 2-3 days you buy yourself some extra therapy.
  • After the rest window, stretching is strongly encouraged to help prevent trigger points.  You will need to target the specific muscles that are tight.
  • Fingertip bruising may occur and is normal.
