Trigger Point Therapy is a specialized technique focused on increasing range of motion and decreasing pain.
An active trigger point is a tight place in the belly of a muscle that refers pain, numbness or other sensations to another place in the body. For example, many headaches are caused by trigger points in the shoulders or neck. Chronic low back pain or indigestion could be coming from muscles accessed through the abdomen, and jaw pain could be coming from the neck or temporal region. Janet Travell, a groundbreaking physician in the field of trigger point therapy, postulated that up to 75% of common pain has a muscular component.
I incorporate trigger point therapy into my Signature Sessions or, you can schedule a session of just trigger point work. If trigger points are discovered, I teach you how to work on them at home. I studied trigger point therapy with Amber Davies in Louisville, KY. I highly recommend you purchase her book, The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, for your healing journey.
