Most of us would have experienced how powerful touch can be. It can have an immediate affect on your mind and body. When a baby cries, the parent will pick up their bub, giving it a cuddle that soothes and comforts. When we suffer from a headache, we will place our hands on our head and rub the area. We do these things almost without thought.

What is a trigger point? Muscles are made of up of fibres, called sarcomeres, that overlap each other. When the sarcomeres contract, they attach to the adjacent fibres and pull, resulting in movement of the muscle. To release this movement the sarcomeres let go of their hold on the adjacent fibres and the contraction stops. A knot, or more accurately a trigger point, is formed when the sarcomeres are constantly firing, or 'switched on'. It can feel like a nodule or knot in the muscle when felt through the skin and can refer pain beyond the knot itself.
