myofascial therapy trigger point release techniques

I have had upper thoracic pain post surgery for ten years and have been receiving myofascial release therapy for the last year. My massage therapist uses her elbow to release the knots but also does what she calls "deep" release by putting her hands on my back and lightly massaging. I get relief by the elbow technique but have no confidence in the "deep" therapy. I have not allowed her to do the highly suspicious cranio-sacral therapy but cannot stop this expensive laying on of hands.
WHat experiences do others have with trying to get effective myofascial therapy?
