Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trigger point therapy is a proven therapeutic technique used for the relief of soft-tissue pain and dysfunction, including pain from repetitive strain injuries, accident trauma, and sports injuries, as well as fibromyalgia and related conditions. Trigger points are places in the muscle or its connective tissue where a lack of oxygen causes swelling; the resulting referred pain from these points occurs in predictable patterns that can vary in intensity from low-grade discomfort to severe and incapacitating torture.

As researched and documented by Travell and Simons in their guide for medical professionals, Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual, trigger point therapy is recognized by the American Academy of Pain Management as an effective method for the treatment of all forms of myofascial pain. As practiced by massage therapists and other health professionals, a variety of massage techniques are used to stimulate the flow of oxygen, thus relieving the referred swelling and pain. Most patients treated with this method experience quick or immediate pain reduction and a rapid return of mobility and function.

With The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, this proven technique is now available in an affordable, step-by-step format for anyone who needs it, offering pain sufferers the tools to stop their pain, without drugs, surgery, or doctor's visits. In his practice, massage therapist Clair Davies has taught hundreds of clients how to use this method, often with immediate results. He has found that more difficult problems often take only three or four days to subdue, and even long-term chronic pain can be corrected in as little as six weeks of treatment.

The workbook's user-friendly design provides easy-to-follow pain-and-muscle guides to help readers narrow the search for the trigger points that are causing their pain, and over 200 detailed illustrations help them learn the exact massage technique that is most effective for their specific trigger point. Since safe massage is a major issue for readers who may already be suffering from hurting hands and fingers, Davies has taken special care to devise methods that can be effective when applied in the form of brief sessions of a minute or two that can be repeated throughout the day.
