Banyen's Description: 

New science confirms that trigger-point massage is one of the most effective ways to relieve pain. Trigger Points gives you 40 simple, step-by-step exercises you can safely use at home to target pain—from long-term, debilitating backache or repetitive strain injury to migraines or acute, post-injury pain.

Author and leading therapist Amanda Oswald specializes in working with chronic pain conditions. In this book, she explains how trigger points—small, tender knots of connective tissue (fascia)—can cause symptoms, either around the trigger point itself or referred to elsewhere in the body. Pressure and massage can release these knots and bring immediate, long-lasting relief.

Identify your pain patterns, locate the trigger points responsible using detailed body maps, then treat the trigger points accurately and safely. Each exercise shows you how to position your body, different ways to apply pressure, how long to sustain it, and how often to repeat the process.

With Trigger Points, you can take control of chronic or recurring pain yourself to achieve life-changing results.

During my advanced bodywork studies, I heard about myofascial release and trigger points. Suddenly, everything made sense. I learned how trigger points can be found in all areas of the body and cause a wide range of seemingly unrelated symptoms, and ever since I have made it my mission to pass on techniques for self-treating myofascial trigger points.

Publisher’s Description: 

New science has revealed the effectiveness of trigger-point massage to target chronic pain. 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.

Trigger Points gives you more than 60 step-by step-techniques that you can use at home, with detailed illustrations and accurate, expert advice on placement, pressure, duration, and repetition. Take control of chronic or recurring pain yourself to achieve life-changing results.
