I've been doing pressure pointing to clear my sinus's (bit sick, blocked nose), works a treat! I actually was doing it constantly for about a week, i was starting to form calisus on my hands :proud: At least i can breath!

Trigger point/accupressure/accupuncture ... that stuff is gold. :kiss:

Treating trigger points/myofascial pain on a daily basis is what is going to get my three children's college education paid for.

I REALLY love it!

Of course, if issue 37 got out to everyone it would hurt my practice :-(

I've had good results with my tennis elbow since reading Christian Lemburg's TPT article. I started doing the massage in one direction and really noticed a decrease in pain.

Does issue #37 cover the trigger points of the entire body?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Michael, there are hundreads of trigger points in the body. The CF issue gives you some good ones that you are able to do on yourself for arm and leg pain.

If your after some more trigger points, you can get some good sources from the net. Such as these two :happy:

Michael,

"Does issue #37 cover the trigger points of the entire body?" - no, the article is just a short overview of what trigger points are, and how to treat them, and gives some examples of common trigger points for athletes.

I posted a short summary of the article at http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/27/14941.html.

If you really want to have a go at it, get The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook (http://www.triggerpointbook.com/).

Cheers,

Christian
