Hypersensitive points within the muscle tissue that has become fatigued / tense / in spasm, I.e. A focal point of tension that can cause pain, aching throughout the muscle, or even pain to the other areas.


The trigger point may lie within or outside the actual area of pain.


Different techniques can be used to relive these including -


- Direct pressure

- Intermitten and pressure

- Positional release techniques


Some people experience amazing relief fro trigger point tension release, with almost a ‘butterfly’ like sensation through their muscle as the pressure releases, which is both visible as well as felt.
