Trigger Point Therapy is a therapeutic technique utilising physical pressure on specific sites of the body, known as trigger points, to alleviate pain and dysfunction. These trigger points are sensitive areas within muscle or connective tissue that become painful when compressed.

This modality is rooted in the understanding that point-specific stress can lead to widespread physical discomfort. It is often incorporated into broader therapeutic strategies for treating musculoskeletal pain conditions. Its efficacy has been supported by numerous scientific studies demonstrating its positive effects on reducing chronic pain, enhancing muscle flexibility and improving range of motion.

While traditional massage focuses on relaxation and general wellbeing, Trigger Point Therapy targets individual areas with precision to promote healing and relief from discomfort. The therapy’s exact origin remains uncertain but it gained mainstream acceptance in the mid-20th century after Dr. Janet Travell’s pioneering work on myofascial pain syndromes.
