Trigger Points
(Click graphic to enlarge)

Trigger points are accumulations of waste products around a nerve receptor. Often times, they feel like nodules or taut bands of fibers within the soft tissues. Trigger points form in muscles which have been overused or injured. To deactivate a trigger point, static pressure and short deep strokes are applied, released, and applied again. This flushes the tissue of metabolic waste, allows fresh blood to flow in, and encourages the muscle fibers to relax.
