What are Trigger Points?
Trigger points are HOW our muscles hold tension. Trigger points cause pain and nerve symptoms in the body. Our staff is trained to locate and release these points for the greatest benefit in releasing pain and dysfunction. Our lead therapist, Cat Matlock, also teaches people how to release these points on themselves for ongoing self-care.
Hello, I’m Cat.
Cat Matlock has been a licensed massage therapist and bodyworker since 1993, dedicating her practice to the understanding and relieving of the tensional systems which create chronic pain in our bodies. Cat is a trigger point therapy specialist, providing trigger point therapy and training in the Asheville, North Carolina area.
Cat has given me relief from years of chronic headaches that no other traditional or alternative practitioner (and I had tried them all!) has been able to provide.
Cat is, hands down, my choice bodyworker in Asheville. Her strategy for chronic pain relief is grounded, smart, and very effective.
Cat’s skill and attention to detail in massage technique and knowledge of the body is far superior to any other massage therapist I’ve experienced.
