Trigger Point Massage
Trigger points are responsible for a variety of pain, usually throbbing and dull aches. These include headaches, neck and jaw pain, lower back pain, and joint pain. Earaches, dizziness, nausea, heartburn, sinus pain or congestion, and colic in babies can all be the results of trigger points. Pressure on the correct trigger point will relieve the pain and hasten the healing of the body. The method utilized by the practitioner is similar to Asian Acupressure. Deep sustained finger pressure is applied to the trigger points to release them.
