WHAT ARE TRIGGER POINTS?
Trigger points are sensitive or sore spots in soft tissue, also known as myofascial trigger points. Each trigger point is a small patch of tightly contracted muscle, a very small cramp that affects a very small patch of muscle tissue. The trigger point, just like its name, it ‘triggers’ the pain, meaning it is pain that is caused by a problem elsewhere in the body. The therapist’s job is to find that trigger point, and massage it to help you get rid of the pain.
Trigger points do not occur along the same paths, or meridians, that acupressure and acupuncture points present on the body. Trigger point therapy consists of massaging and pressing on trigger points until the cramped muscle relaxes, providing relief both at the trigger point and positively affecting the origin or source points in the body.
WHAT IS ACUPRESSURE?
You may have heard about ‘acupuncture’, that requires needles. Acupressure, is also one of many Asian bodywork therapies based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It is essentially acupuncture without the needles, since acupressure relies on the same body maps of energy (chi) meridians found in the body. When pressure is applied to acupoints, correlated parts of the body respond.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TRIGGER POINTS AND ACUPRESSURE?
Trigger point therapy and acupressure actually work together. Trigger point therapy works to release muscle tension, and acupressure points works to balance vital energy (chi). Both of them work together to promote overall health. A good holistic health plan includes chiropractic adjustments to keep the spine aligned, regular massage therapy and trigger point therapy to reduce muscle strain, and acupressure to maintain energy balance.
THE BENEFITS OF TRIGGER POINT THERAPY AND ACUPRESSURE POINT:
Along with their ability to help treat variety of pains, patients experience additional benefits of trigger point therapy and acupressure point massage. It is a deeply relaxing experience and — like other types of massage — can help with:
