Trigger Point / Myofascial Therapy uses deep pressure to release trigger points (tiny knots that develop in muscle fiber, fascia or ligaments).

Trigger points were first defined in the 1940's by U.S. physician Janet Travell, M.D. as "a hyper-irritable spot usually within a taut band of skeletal muscle or its fascia that is painful on compression and can give rise to characteristic referred pain, tenderness and autonomic phenomena."

There are several trigger point release techniques. Each involves different ways of applying "ischemic pressure" - pushing a point on the body hard enough to stimulate the nervous system and increase circulation to the area Myotherapy is a method developed by American Bonnie Prudden in 1976. Myotherapy defuses trigger points by applying pressure to the muscle for several seconds by means of fingers, knuckles and elbows.

Some practitioners have adapted Trigger Point / Myofascial Therapy for use on pets.
