One Individual Large Trigger Point Hot Stone
These thin Basalt stones have a rounded end, and are used to do deep tissue work on muscles that are in spasm or to release trigger points. The heat that is emanating from the stones will help make the therapists job easier as it relaxes the problematic muscle – a substitute for using the thumbs. This will help save the therapist from wear and tear on their hands.
Trigger points are sore, painful spots that occur in a muscle. Most people refer to trigger points as knots. They are called trigger points because they “trigger” a painful response that often refers pain to different parts of your body.

Trigger Point Massage provides benefits after just one session.
