Maybe you think that your pain is purely physical.
This is not true.

I work with a Pain Reset method, which is a gentle and effective way to gain relief from pain complaints in the short term. A combination of trigger point and connective tissue method is one of the components of the Reality Reset trajectory. Reality Reset is a thorough, mind-body trajectory to overcome long-term (pain) complaints and stress. Neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, headaches, migraines. But also skin irritations, digestion problems and more.
Scanning and removing blockages (Trigger points) will free you from your pain and make you understand your mind/body connection better.
This one-on-one approach, removing blockages in your body, can be the next step toward calming the nervous system and dealing with ‘unpleasant feelings', blockages, negative emotions and stress.
Trigger points are popularly known as muscle knots. They are actually very localised cramps in muscles where, due to a lack of blood flow and oxygen, an oversensitive area is created. From the outside, these muscle nodes can be felt as painful hard lumps or strings. When you apply considerable pressure to them, this can cause radiating pain in another part of the body. Trigger points can occur in all muscles in the body, and always in fixed places. Namely where the nervous system transmits information to the muscle. Often the cause is overexertion, stress or poor posture, but also a fall or accident, too little exercise or poor nutrition can lead to the occurrence.
The radiating area
Each trigger point has a specific pain radiating area that in many cases covers a different area than the location of the trigger point itself. A trigger point in the small buttock causes pain radiating into the ankle. And a lot of tension in the trapezius, can lead to headaches (see picture). It can also happen that your therapist treats a muscle near your shoulder blade, while you feel it in your arm. So each trigger point has a unique pain pattern that sometimes covers completely different parts of the body. Because of this knowledge, a lot of "vague" pain complaints now appear to be explainable and treatable.
Physical overexertion can cause a muscle to be stretched for a long period of time. This leads locally to a shortage of oxygen and nutrients, which further increases the contraction. In the end, a painful thickening of the muscle occurs, or a trigger point.
Psychological cause of trigger points
Can the psyche also cause trigger points? Yeah. Absolutely. Practical experience shows that psychological factors play a major role in pain caused by trigger points. This is because trigger points occur at places where the blood circulation has decreased. Blood flow is regulated throughout the body by the autonomic nervous system that is controlled from the hypothalamus in the brain. The hypothalamus has strong connections with emotional centres in the brain, such as the amygdala.
Certain emotions (especially self-imposed pressure and repressed feelings) can cause the nervous system to cause long-term reduced blood flow in certain parts of the body. Trigger points are then the result.
If you experience pain, then it is possible that it is caused by trigger points ..It is best to have it removed because 1 point causes other points causing blockages in your body and your blood can't flow properly.
A blockage develops in your body and gets stuck. The blockage no longer has flow, and a shortage of oxygen (nutrition) occurs in that area.
The trigger-point package is a significant part of the Reality Reset and an essential step to understanding your psycho/physical reaction.
Maybe you don't just suffer from one pain alone, but do you feel pain somewhere else as well?
That's because there are several trigger points hidden, and they trigger each other.
Maybe you are worried because you feel pain in your chest (which is also often caused by a trigger point).
And or does it move? Maybe first in your chest and then in your neck?
Unconsciously it worries you and makes you insecure and stressed. And also very annoying and painful!
It is also important to look at your mind/body connection...so that you can find out more clarity and more about yourself and what causes that pain in you (psycho/physical reaction) and look for Trigger-points and remove them.
