What is Trigger Point Therapy?
While three physicians, Dr. Hans Kraus, Dr. Janet Travell and Dr. Desmond
Tivy are credited with laying the foundation for
Trigger Point Therapy
during the last half of the 20th century,
it was fitness and bodywork expert
Bonnie Prudden who popularized this form of massage in the 1970s under
the label "myotherapy."
Today, Trigger Point Therapy is a popular
and effective massage technique used by thousands of people from athletes
and professional massage therapists to those experiencing the benefits of
massage therapy for the first time. Treatment of trigger points involves
the application of sustained pressure for a period long enough to release
the muscle spasm which in turn causes pain. Stopping the
using Trigger Point therapy procedure is one of the
most powerful yet simple ways to treat muscle pain. Trigger Point Therapy
is extremely therapeutic over time.
