Trigger Point Therapy

Based on the extensive works of Dr. Janet Travell and Dr. David Simons, trigger point therapy is used by massage therapists to systematically de-activate trigger points, tight bands in the muscles, tendons, or ligaments which refer pain to other areas. The treatment may be followed by stretches with ice, followed by heat and then movement. Trigger point work is often a part of Neuromuscular Therapy and is beneficial wherever chronic, aching pain is felt.
