Trigger point acupuncture needling has been practiced for generations. A trigger point or knot is an overly contracted muscle. Muscles have cross bridges that contract and relax as they move. Areas of muscle that contract involuntarily and remain contracted are referred to as trigger points. Modern acupuncture relies heavily on the correct diagnosis and treatment of ashi points for pain management. The goal of trigger point needling is to cause the muscle to twitch. This twitch resets the muscle, allowing it to move across a broader range of motion. This course will provide participants the basics of trigger point acupuncture needling, how to identify trigger points, treatment protocols for neck pain using trigger point acupuncture needling.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Learn how to identify trigger points
  • Identify trigger point pain pattern
  • Recognize characteristics of trigger points
  • Learn acupuncture needling protocols for trigger point release
