Event description

Description

This workshop is for professional Massage Therapists for CPD training, to add to their skills and knowledge for more effective treatments.

There has been a lot of discussion and dispute about Trigger Points, and we will look at the different theories during the day and explore the controversy. We will start from a traditional standpoint; how to understand and treat referred pain and how to determine where the real problem area is – which is not always where your client reports feeling pain. Knowledge of trigger points and how to treat them will make your treatments much more effective and these methods can be incorporated into your normal massage treatments.

We will explore the probable causes of trigger points, what happens physiologically, and how to identify them. We will discuss various techniques used to treat trigger points, and you will learn and practice two methods appropriate for massage therapists and which can be incorporated easily into your regular treatments.

During the day you will:

  • Discuss the theory of trigger points: basic physiology, how they caused referred pain in predictable areas, how this knowledge will affect your treatment, and treatment methods.
  • Use palpation to identify trigger points.
  • Observe and practice massage techniques of stroking and compression to relieve trigger points.
  • Review contraindications to massaging trigger points
  • Discuss how clients may make changes in their habits to avoid creating muscle tension and trigger points
  • Explore how to integrate trigger point massage into your own treatments.

You will receive an interactive workbook which includes pictures and room for your notes, giving you an ongoing reference from the day. You will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course.
