Trigger Point Therapy or Acupressure

A trigger point is a hyperirritable spot that is painful. It is called a trigger point because it “triggers” a painful response.

But a trigger point is more than a tender nodule. It affects not only the muscle where the trigger point is located, but also causes “referred pain” in tissues supplied by nerves.

Trigger points are located in a taut band of muscles fibers. The trigger point is the most tender point in the band. The therapist will locate and deactivate them using finger pressure.

Treatment Through Acupressure

Our specialised treatment is used to treat painful trigger points that cause referred pain. It took a while to get the muscle in that condition, and it will likely take more than one massage to get rid of it. These points are often areas of chronic “holding” and you need to learn how to move in different ways to keep them from recurring.

Holding the trigger point nodule and alsightly stretching it will not only start to relieve the pain, but melt away the points within, then as the adhesions and injuries are broken down the body is better able to heal the area by sending in nutrients and improving the circulation.
