Why take the Professional 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.

If someone ask the importance of trigger point therapy, say this – “trigger point helps to relieve sore muscle tissues and stiff joints”. Trigger point to 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 will also gain and reinforce your knowledge on the anatomy of the human body!

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

Therefore, o be come a trigger point or acupressure therapist, it is more than giving a quick 60-minute relaxing massage. As a theapist, you need to understand each client’s pain patterns. You need to 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. You will also learn 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? 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.

The Trapezius muscle is between the shoulder blades (wings).

You need to know how to work which combination of muscles. In addition, you must know 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 professional trigger point therapy 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. There will be a lot of 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 and relax the muscle. This will be done during the later part relaxation phrase of the treatment. Aside from attaining an widely recognised and accepted certification, you will learn about post-treatment activities. This includes aftercare advice to clients and the human anatomy relating to hand and foot reflexology. In addition, PTA is recognised by employers and spas throughout Singapore.
