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.
Example, when a client comes to you with the most common neck pain, most body therapists will “attack” the neck and give it a hard massage. They think it has to do with neck, the joint, muscle area around the neck. BUT, the truth is it has to do 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 whereby you will use more of
and 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.

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.
