Trigger Point Therapy is the application of pressure in one area to relieve pain or tenderness elsewhere in the body. Sometimes the body will show pain in places that are not the source of the issue. This phenomenon is called referral pain. Referral pain can be addressed via trigger points associated with the referral areas. Incorporating this therapy into bodywork helps get to the root of the problem so it is not only the symptoms that are addressed, but helps identify the true issue at hand.
