Myofascial trigger points, also known as trigger points, are described as hyperirritable spots in the fascia surrounding skeletal muscle. They are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers. … Compression of a trigger point may elicit local tenderness, referred pain, or local twitch response.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myofascial_trigger_point

The other day, I was showing a friend of mine how to treat trigger points. It’s always interesting to me to see how people relate to their own body.

This guy is a world class athlete for his age bracket, super coordinated and fit. He has excellent coaches, and a great understanding of his sport.

I talked him through how to find triggers, and switch them off. A few minutes was all it took to get him started.

And the look on his face when he got up from treating his lower back muscles was priceless.

He gave a sort of a twist, testing out how his back felt. Then another twist, to see if he was really feeling what he thought he was.

‘That’s so much better! I can feel it already!’

Finding and treating the right trigger points in the right way really is that powerful. And the best part? Once you have the knowledge, the power to switch them off is in your hands – for the rest of your life.

Here’s where to get started >>>
