The main focus of our jobs as bodywork practitioners is to help relieve and manage pain. One of the hardest things to explain is soft-tissue pain; it doesn’t show up on MRI’s or X-Rays. It is difficult to pinpoint the source of pain, and equally difficult to create a treatment plan that will address what needs to be addressed.
This book primarily focuses on self-treatment, but is easily adaptable for use in your practice. There are clear, easy-to-follow treatment plans, complete with illustrations. The pain patterns that are caused by trigger points are clearly defined, allowing for visualization of what you feel with your hands. There are tools that you can use for pain relief for yourself and/or your clients.
There are charts of specific trigger points, their corresponding muscles, and symptoms that indicate a pain issue. The step-by-step format makes it easy to follow the routines. This is a practical book with practical treatment options that are sure to relieve the pain of your toughest client! When you are capable of relieving pain, your business will flourish!
