Trigger points are areas of muscle tension and discomfort that can have a significant impact on a person's well-being and physical function.   Trigger points are usually characterised by a small, palpable nodule or band of muscle fibres that feels firmer and more contracted compared to the surrounding muscle tissue.  Trigger points are typically tender or painful when pressure is applied to them. This tenderness is often described as a localized or specific point of discomfort.  One distinctive feature of trigger points is that they can cause pain to be felt in areas other than the point itself. This phenomenon is known as referred pain. For example, a trigger point in the shoulder muscle may cause pain to radiate down the arm.


Trigger point therapy is a specialised form of bodywork that focuses on identifying and releasing these tight, painful knots in muscles. By applying targeted pressure and various techniques, a skilled therapist can help alleviate pain, improve muscle function, and restore balance to the body.

Trigger point therapy can provide effective pain relief by releasing tension in specific muscle areas.  By addressing trigger points, you can regain flexibility and enhance your overall mobility.  Trigger point therapy is also useful in preventing injuries. 

Understanding trigger points and their impact on your client's body is a crucial step towards holistic health and well-being.  Whether you're dealing with chronic pain, seeking enhanced athletic performance, or simply looking to relieve stress, trigger point therapy may be a valuable addition to your therapeutic toolbox. 

With demonstrations of how Trigger Points can cause pain, muscular dysfunction, and even postural problems, we will show you how to effectively treat them using a combination of Trigger Point Therapy techniques.  Through decades of research, AHG has found ‘the big seven’ muscles, which can have an effect all over the body.  Active Health Group has been at the forefront of Trigger Point Therapy for over two decades and you will be getting the best training from industry leaders.
