Massage Therapy & Trigger Points
By Anna Williams
Clients usually seek out massage because they are experiencing pain which does not go away by itself. Sometimes they are unaware of what’s happened to cause the pain, and can’t work out how to relieve it. As massage therapists we always aim to find the original source of the pain, and very often we discover that it is coming from elsewhere in the body, sometimes from a place that the client had no idea was a problem! This is when we start to consider trigger points.
