“Symptoms from trigger points in the chest and abdomen muscles may be subject to more misdiagnosis and misdirected treatment than those in any other part of the body.” (Clair Davies, author of Trigger Point Therapy Workbook)
Abdominal Trigger Points can cause:
- Menstrual pain
- False appendicitis
- Food intolerance
- Groin pain
- And more!
In this advanced hands-on, live teacher in the classroom class, you will learn the science and theory of trigger points in the flat muscles of the abdomen. You will also learn to palpate and release these trigger points. Be prepared to learn and practice the abdominal work that can release a whole host of client symptoms of discomfort.
Bring pen and paper, massage sheets, hand towels, and lubricant. You should wear comfortable clothes. Women should wear athletic bras to make working the belly and getting on and off of the tables easier. Although we will review the anatomy of the abdominal muscles, to get the most out of this class, you should have a basic understanding the origin and insertions, and actions of the abdominal muscles. Participants will be working on each other’s abdomens during class. Class size is limited in order to assure ample instructor feedback for each participant.
