Trigger Point Therapy
All oilMD recommended products are natural, therapeutic-grade essential oils blended with anti-inflammatory properties in mind. These products are presented in bottles with roll-on balls for pulse point and trigger point therapy, a form of acupressure. Using the pulse point technique with the roll-on ball is innovative, allowing for direct application of essential oils at specific locations.
Acupressure and the application of specialized essential oil blends to specific sites of nervous innervation and vascular blood flow (i.e., pulse points) is a unique combination of therapeutic modalities. The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook: Your Self-Treatment Guide for Pain Relief, by Clair Davies, describes the causes and symptoms of trigger points, plus therapeutic methods to find relief from pain (e.g., pain associated with fibromyalgia and myofascial syndromes).
