Trigger Point

This therapy is a technique that involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Trigger points are areas of tenderness in a muscle. There are two basic types of trigger points: active and latent.

Latent trigger points only exhibit pain when compressed, they do not refer pain to other areas of the body. Latent trigger points are believed to be one of the causes of stiff joints and restricted range of motion of old age. The pain caused by trigger points may be the biggest cause of disability and loss of time in the workplace. Trigger point therapy is almost always integrated with other massage modalities.

Clients are told that on a scale of 1-10, the pain should never be more than a 7. Most clients who have chronic pain and receive trigger point therapy, claim that it is miraculous.
