Why take the WSQ Trigger Point Therapy Course?

Trigger point is a pain relief therapy. This is not a regular Swedish or Aromatherapy relaxing massage. Our students have really make a positive impact and see people’s lives change and health improve through regular treatments. From tennis elbow to lower back pain to the most common ankle pain, learn the 120 pairs of muscles in your body and only if you wish to help people, this would be the course for you.

Generally, if someone ask you, just say this – helps to relieve sore muscle tissues and stiff joints, allow the body to be unblock and “breathe” better all over again. Eventually the client will feel more energised after your treatment. Energy is a big thing for many. Energy affects the body and mind. Take this advance course if you wish to do more serious healing work on adults. You also gain and reinforce your knowledge on the Anatomy of body!

When people talk of trigger points, they relate to pain in general. BUT, trigger points can also refer to motor distortions to other muscles causing them to be naturally weak or spasms to occur.

So, to be come a Trigger Point or Acupressure therapist, it is more than giving a quick 60mins relaxing massage. He or she needs to understand each client’s pain patterns and identify the source of the client’s musculoskeletal pain and address it correctly and effectively. It is not hard massage, it is not a rub. We teach you to understand  anatomy and physiology and how it relates to skeletal system and muscles work. Then, you need to know different stages of pressure and intensity of adjusting the pressure.

For example, when a client comes to you with the most common neck pain what will most massage therapists do? Well, most body therapists will “attack” the neck and give it a hard massage. Therapists think the issue and pain has to do with neck, the joint, muscle area around the neck. However, the truth is that the pain is related with treatment at the Trapezius muscle which is between the shoulder blades (wings). You need to know how to work which combination of muscles, what advise to give to your client after the treatment to recover faster.

If you wish to do more healing therapy work on clients with common ailments related to neck, frozen shoulder, lower back, knee, headache, then come and learn trigger point or acupressure. In the WSQ Trigger Point massage course, you will use more of:

  • Thumb
  • Fingertip
  • Elbow

Slowly vary your pressure, holding 4-10 seconds and slowly releasing the trigger point. Repeat this method and applying pressure from light to stronger. In short, it is a treatment which require moderation of pressure in different stages.We teach you simple and proven techniques to correctly detect and locate the source of clients’ pain with hands on practices and how to work with your body weight.

Whilst you may apply Pressure Release Techniques, you may also use Stretching Muscle Techniques to contract/relax the muscle at the later part relaxation phrase of the treatment.

This therapy training is for serious practitioner who wants to upgrade and learn to become familiar with different acupressure points locations.
