trigger point therapy
Trigger point therapy is an extremely effective technique that uses the insertion of fine acupuncture needles to “deactivate” or “shut down” painful or knotted areas in your muscles. Many of us have areas in our bodies that feel tense or tight and restricted. When inserting the needle with a specific technique into these tight areas, we elicit a “twitch response” or a brief contraction followed by an immediate and long lasting relaxation of the muscle fibers.
This type of Acupuncture therapy is based off of the clinical findings of Dr. Janet Travell, author of “Myofascial Pain Referral Patterns”.
It can effectively treat any and all pain related complaints due to muscle, connective tissue and fascia restrictions.
