Trigger Point Therapy

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.

Jamilah incorporates trigger point therapy into a Signature Session or, you can schedule a Trigger Point Therapy session.  If trigger points are discovered, she teaches you how to work on them at home.  She studied trigger point therapy with Amber Davies in Louisville, KY.   Jamilah highly recommends you purchase Davies' book, The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, for your healing journey.
