This is the only self-help book designed to help the layperson to treat themselves for painful trigger points with massage. Trigger point therapy is one of the most intriguing and fastest-growing bodywork styles in the world. Medical doctors, chiropractors, and alternative health practitioners are all beginning to use this technique to relieve the pain of individuals suffering from undiagnosable soft tissue pain-a condition that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits. The technique involves applying a gentle, sweeping stroke to trigger points, places in muscle or connective tissue where a lack of oxygen causes swelling. These points are easily located by general readers and create pain throughout the body in predictable patterns characteristic to each muscle, producing discomfort ranging from mild to severe. The stimulation of the point causes an increase in the oxygen level in the area and often produces instant relief.

The first edition of The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook has made a huge impact in the use of this dynamic technique. This is the first major revision of the overnight classic, a complete update that includes new information specifically for massage professionals as well as a detailed discussion of progressive muscle relaxation techniques that can reinforce the therapeutic power of trigger point work.

  • perfect book for figuring out how to end body pain

    basically, if you hurt anywhere on your body (muscle-wise, tendon-wise), this book will help you find relief for the pain. i had pain in my forearm muscle and the trigger point for this pain was under my arm...not expected but it's true. the book gives examples of activities that cause certain pain so you can identify why it's happening. i have saved countless visits to the physical therapist & chiropractor thanks to this book. it is a great resource!

  • Carpal tunnel cure!

    I bought this book a while ago, on Amazon (Overstock did not have it then) and let me tell you, this was a lifesaver for me. Working in IT field for nearly 20 years took its toll by leaving me nearly handicapped by severe and persistent carpal tunnel syndrome. Day after day, awful throbbing pain in right forearm, carpals and metacarpals. No good-night sleep either as I would wake up, sometimes several times a night, with excruciating pain and numb hand. The physio did help a little but not enough, and massage therapy out of pocket was just way too much. That's when I found and bought this book. I was pain-free for weeks just AFTER ONE APPLICATION; I literally cried tears of relief and joy. One self-application of the massage in very specific locations of the forearm and the 15+ year pain was gone! I only have to do it 3, maybe 4 times a year now, and I still do a lot of computer work, pain free. The book is very well written - clear illustrations, and explanations of how and where to apply massage, even a newb like me could do this with ease. If you suffer from any muscle or tendon pains, give this one a try before you spend a fortune on physio or painkillers. Well worth it!
