Please register your interest and we will contact you when we offer this course

In Trigger Point Therapy, the therapist locates and de-activates “Trigger Points”, which are often tender areas in the body.

The major goals of treatment include, reduction in the spasm, induction of new blood flow, and thereby enhance oxygen supply to the effected area. The muscles are gently stretched to complete the relaxation process.

This unit is compulsory for all Diploma of Remedial Massage students, and is strongly recommended for those students interested in applying massage in their practice.

This is a core unit for the Diploma of Remedial Massage and highly recommended for those students who have an interest in Massage.
