New science has revealed the effectiveness of trigger point massage to target pain - from migraines to back pain to repetitive strain injury. Pain is often referred from other parts of the body. By locating and manipulating small contraction points of knotted tissue deep within muscle - trigger points - pain elsewhere in the body can be dramatically relieved and controlled. Here we give you 40 step-by step-techniques that you can use at home, with detailed illustration and reliable expert advice on placement, pressure, duration and repetition. Identify the pain, follow the anatomical body maps to find which trigger points are responsible and locate and massage those trigger points accurately and regularly to experience immediate and long-term relief. Take control of chronic or recurring pain yourself to achieve life-changing results.
