Discover the hidden cause of pain in your body and learn how you can live with less pain or no pain, prevent further injury and get back to the flexibility and mobility you use to enjoy.
Trigger points are highly irritable spots in muscles which are formed when the muscle tissue is damaged at different points in our lives. When activated, trigger points can cause pain, limited range of motion, circulatory problems, nervous system problems and weak or fatigued muscles.
Trigger points become activated when undue stress, either physical or emotional, is present in our lives. When constantly activated these points can cause unrelenting chronic pain and lead to further health issues.

Several methods are used to relieve trigger points including trigger point therapy and soft tissue massage as well as stretching, cupping and dry needling.
In cupping, suction is used to draw skin and the superficial muscle layer into the cup – much like the inverse of massage.
Dry needling involves inserting a thin filament needle into the skin and muscle directly at the myofascial trigger point – the small contraction knot in the muscle.
Treatment typically includes the prescription of tailored exercise and the use of the foam rollers, spiky balls and resistance bands.
