Trigger Point Pilates will help daily functional movement and it will help ease chronic pain conditions. The movements help hydrate and lubricate the fascia, allowing you to move with ease. These exercises can be executed in a class or learnt to do at home for certain post rehab conditions.
TPP release is effective for pre and post surgery after Physio sessions. The exercises can be done at home to gain constant benefits of fascia release.
The science behind the class:
What is Myofascia?
Myo = Muscle
Fascia means a continuous band of connective tissue wrapping around and throughout the body.
The aim of the Trigger Point class is to release the fascia.
There is massive science on using Myofascial release for chronic painful conditions and scar tissue through Myofascial work.
Fascia is highly sensitive as it is full of nerve cells, sensitive to every hormone in your system. With every repetitive functional movement, the fascia reacts to every bump, bruise, physical and emotional trauma.
A Trigger Point is a build up of fascia cells which create inflammation, a nagging deep painful area which can refer from one area to another.
In class we work deeply on releasing into the deep layers of fascia and targeting the release of Trigger Points.
Healthy fascia needs to be kept hydrated with water and movement. This allows the body tissue to change and heal. If injured the worst thing you can do is sit around or lie in bed as this tightens up the body.
