Our human body is a magnificent machine. It has a tremendous healing system of its own. The body is full of trigger points. If you apply the correct amount of pressure at these trigger points, they can stimulate the body to set its internal healing system rolling.
The human body is such that the inside part of the body has a cover of tissue throughout the entire body. The tissue covers every area of the body such as muscles, nerves, organs, as well as blood vessels.
The muscles can overstretch from trauma or overuse thus suffering a tea and adhear together. These adhesions are the trigger points of a muscle. This can prevent the proper functioning of the muscles.
The trigger point may not be in the area where you experience the pain. A trigger point on the neck may cause a pain in the back and vice versa. The massage therapist knows where the trigger points are. He also knows the effects of applying the right amount of pressure. The therapist may usually ask you to take deep breaths during the trigger point therapy thereby enabling him to locate the trigger points easily. This treatment is usually instantaneous. Regular treatment can help you take care of chronic injuries.
