About Trigger Point Pilates
Trigger Point Pilates is system of functional exercises designed specifically to release the spine and body. This is achieved by stimulating trigger points in order to stretch and elongate the connective tissue (fascia) around our muscles.
Trigger Point Pilates helps alleviate many chronic pain conditions and improves body function by making our muscles more flexible and move more freely.
Along with correct breathing in conjunction with key movements and stretches, Trigger Point Pilates classes also utilise special spiky ‘myofascial release balls’ (provided) to stimulate our trigger points.
Trigger Point Pilates balls are also excellent for self-massage at home, and can be purchased here.

It is composed of two main types of fibres, collagen and elastin, that promote strength and flexibility. It is dynamic in nature and changes and conforms to pressures applied to it.
