This time is that last I will say it..  Ive been a professional massage therapist for 26 years... 50,000 massages.. Trigger points are easily eliminated in seconds....If you are serious about what you do... contact me.....

I'm always interested in different approaches. Would love to hear about your techniques, etc.

I believe  you.  I am a trigger point therapist as well and can eliminate triggers in 20 seconds or less...eith 40 years experience...learned from Dr. Travell herself.  I love it when a client comes to me after being treated by several doctors with pills, MRI's, CT, etc. and weeks of physical therapy...no help.  I put the client on the table; find the triggers; eliminate them; stretch the affected muscles and we're done.. The client leaves pain free; goes to her garden club and tells all her friends and i have 10 more clients...nice life.

I am glad none of the therapists around here, especially those working at spas and elements and other fast massge places, know anything about trigger points...more business for me.

 

Would love to hear more about releasing trigger points in 20 seconds.  I believe you, because I've had it done to me.  It seems simple, but in practice has not been so easy for me to release them on others.  I thought it may have to do with the client being receptive and relaxed......letting it go?
I'm a new LMP and do a lot of Trigger Point but I have found that some release quickly and others don't. Isn't it true that it depends on how long the trigger point has been there? If it's been there a long time doesn't it take multiple sessions?
No time doesn't matter that much..  My experience anyway.. Once you get into it.. Trigger point work..You can make most of them go away.. More often then not, by a long ways.
Alright. Thanks for the response. So can you describe what your "technique" is that helps them go away every time?
Well it doesnt work every time.. but way more often then not.  Cant adequately describe the techniques in typing here.  Im thinking about giving some seminars..maybe.

Gordon, I too am curious.  Could you please attempt to give at least a general idea of your technique?  What about if the patient has multiple perpetuating factors?  You are not finding the trigger points keep reactivating?

Gordon wrote back & said it was the Kaufman Technique, & I found this on the internet (for those of us who were interested in what the technique was he was speaking of):

 

"Kaufman Technique:

This revolutionary  “Pain Neutralization Technique” was the brainchild of Dr. Stephen Kaufman, a Denver-based chiropractor. (2693 South Niagara St. (near Yale and Monaco); Denver, CO. 80224; (800) 774-5078).

 

This technique offers almost miraculous results in an amazingly short period of time, usually just minutes.  The conditions often amenable to this treatment include many kinds of headaches, back pain, migraines, sciatica, and even chronic fatigue states, TMJ pains and dizziness

The technique utilizes normal muscle reflexes to generate almost instant healing. Most muscles in the body perform an action (i.e., a movement), which is opposed by another muscle, which generates the opposite action.

For example, when the biceps muscle, which flexes the forearm, contracts, the opposing muscle, the triceps, which extends the forearm, must relax and vice versa. The nervous system automatically relaxes the opposing muscle by reflex action. A muscle that is in pain or that has “trigger points” is in a state of contraction. These “trigger points” can generate pains locally or even some distance away from the tender spot.

What Dr. Kaufman has discovered is that by pressing on the trigger point and then stimulating the opposing muscle, he is able to “fool” the brain into thinking the opposing muscle is contracting and this causes the trigger point muscle to relax which eliminates the trigger point pain within minutes.  The pain generated by the trigger point will then resolve, sometimes immediately and sometimes over a day or so. Often only one manipulation is necessary to achieve good results. However, repeat visits are sometimes necessary to achieve the desired degree of pain relief."

Hi Valerie,

you have done well to get this secret info:). I was particularly unimpressed with Kaufmans web site,

Wouldn't it be great if further down the road we get some research supported facts.

Meantime, is there a practitioner listing so we can all go for our miricle cure ..........in seconds :)

I'm new to massage. I'm a recent graduate, only licensed a month and have yet to be hired. However, if by Trigger Point ya'll are refering to a hypertonic spot in a muscle that might or might not be sending refered pain, I agree with the fingertip pressure. Before attending school I had realized that I could "remove" tension in a muscle by "sucking" the negative spirit/energy from the spot into my fingers by will. When the energy came into me it dissipated and moved on. The muscle would relax, the spot would melt away. The friend would feel better. Today I know a little more about the mechanics of it, but not much more. I still hold that a negative energy is being released and that part of the reason is my willingness to accept and wish for it to be gone. Less medicine, more love.
