Triggerpoint Release Methode 

Triggerpoint release methode for massage therapists 

Theme: Triggerpoint release  in sport and wellness. 

Description: Many people who visit you as masseur complain of recurring pain in the same place or region. In this condition, pressure on sensitive points in their muscles (Trigger points) can cause this pain. 

This typically occurs after a muscle has been "overused". This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs, hobbies, sports or by stress-related muscle tension.

While nearly everyone has experienced muscle tension pain, the discomfort associated with the presense of triggerpoints persists or worsens.

in this modular course you will learn why, how and where trigger points arise and different ways to influence them as a masseur. In addition, you teach your clients how to deal with this in a good way.
