What is a Trigger Point Massage?

Just what are trigger points?

Trigger Point massage is derived from Chinese acupuncture which, in turn, is based on the idea that the human body is composed of many vigorously active nodes that act as switches which manage all our bodily functions. By manipulating these switches with trigger point massage you can improve the body’s equilibrium and relieve pain.

The so-called triggerpoints are points in which tension and pain accumulate. These points are usually located in a limited area of a muscle or along its side. Trigger points can be divided into two major groups: latent and active. The former are only painful when manipulated, others, instead, cause a pain which can be felt in areas of the body that are nowhere near the problematic muscle.

Trigger point massages act on specific trigger points. While these massages can be at little painful at first, remember that they are very effective in reducing joint pain, tension, stiffness, and muscle weakness.
