Acupressure Massage Cairns to fix your pain!.

Acupressure Massage Cairns or alternatively Acupuncture Treatment Cairns – Chinese Medicine relies on Acupressure points to effect a significant change in the body. There are two types of Acupressure points. One is found in the muscles and may also be referred to as trigger points.

Muscle knots or Ah Shi Points

These are tight bands of muscle that have clumped together to form a ‘knot’ or trigger point. We can use releasing techniques to diffuse, deactivate and clear these. When you push on a trigger point it often leads to pain referral to other locations for example. For instance – there is often an active trigger point in the upper trapezius muscle at the top of the shoulders. This will often refer pain into the back of the neck or into the back of the eyes. This pain referral is nothing to be concerned with and is part of the process of clearing out the muscle knot.
