All about Trigger Points

Those of you already familiar with my work know a little bit about trigger points. A trigger point is a microscopic contracture knot that is sensitive when pressed upon. It can cause pain locally or in a specific referred pain pattern. For example, trigger points in the gluteus medius muscle cause a specific type of pain in the lower back. Pressing on those trigger points helps release the contraction and eliminates the pain. A large part of deep tissue massage focuses on this work, and I often teach my clients how to address their issues on their own.

The following book is an invaluable resource to learn more about this technique and how you can apply it yourself.
