The goal of acupressure or other types of Asian bodywork is to restore health and balance to the body’s channels of energy and to regulate opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy). Some proponents claim acupressure not only treats the energy fields and body but also the mind, emotions, and spirit. Some even believe that therapists can transmit the vital energy (external qi) to another person.
Trigger Point pain referral chart. A trigger point is a section of your muscle that is stuck contracted due to repetitive use, over use, trauma, or injury. The problem with this is that it shortens the muscle & can block blood from getting through which means less oxygen, nutrients & waste removal to those tissues. Trigger point therapy was a specialty of mine at one point :)
