 TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE ST PETERSBURG FLORIDA

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy uses sustained deep pressure at tender knotted points which are called trigger points. Many times these points are connected to other areas on the body rather than where there there is pain. These are known as referral points. Properly applied sustained pressure on the trigger points often results in a "release" which makes the patient feel better.
Janet Travell, MD was an early researcher of pain and dysfunction in her patients.  She found that many of the complaints of patients that sought her help could get relieve with sustained pressure on various muscles in the body.  She and Dr. Simmons wrote textbooks for treatment of myofascial complaints. " Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction The Trigger Point Manual" Upper Extremities and Lower Extremities have been well read and practiced by our therapists.
