Trigger Point Therapy Course
Understanding Trigger Points in pain management is an essential skill for massage therapists
Our trigger point therapy course provides practical training in massage therapy techniques, with a specific focus on identifying trigger points through palpation.
You'll learn how to perform targeted massage sessions that can help alleviate pain and tension, improve posture, and increase flexibility.
This course is suitable for both new and experienced massage therapists, yoga teacher and sports trainers who are interested in expanding their skills and knowledge.
As a beginning or experienced practitioner, this course will provide you with practical techniques to offer efficient pain management and relief to your clients. We also see many advanced yoga instructors and sports trainers taking advantages of our course.
Advanced Pain Relief - Learn special palpation techniques for both Active and Latent Trigger
Trigger points are small hypersensitive areas within the muscle tissue.
We usually discern 2 types of trigger points:
• Latent trigger points, which can cause pain and discomfort with movement
• Active trigger points, which are already emitting pain.
These two types of trigger points require different palpation techniques.
Using our practical palpation technique, we teach you advanced trigger point release methods. By learning these skills, you can detect latent trigger points at an early stage and massage them before they become active trigger points and cause pain.
Pain Relief - Learn palpation techniques for optimal outcomes
In RSM Massage Training Courses, we teach you how to use palpation techniques to locate and release both types of trigger points, including those located in the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
Palpation is an essential skill that allows massage therapists to identify areas of tension and restriction, which can be treated with specific techniques to alleviate pain and discomfort.
We emphasize the importance of using a combination of palpation techniques and functional anatomy knowledge to get a complete picture of the muscle tissue. Our course will provide you with the practical skills you need to address your client's pain.
If you want to go further in the direction of pain management and postural improvement, our comprehensive massage training also includes myofascial release, and deep tissue massages.
Posture Correction: Learn how to trigger the right points to have a significant impact
When a client presents poor posture, you know that it can be both the cause and the consequence of pain.
Professional massage therapists need to understand how to analyze postural imbalances and correct these issues.
In this Massage Training Course, we emphasize the importance of trigger point palpation and identifying surrounding muscle tension, as well as other contributing factors to poor posture.
By understanding the relationship between trigger points and muscle imbalances, you'll be able to provide your clients with effective massages and advice on how to reduce pain and facilitate general postural improvement.
