The Muscles are the largest organ, and it's health influences the quality and longevity of our lives. Muscle pain
can make us less active, more tense or fatigued. Everyday pressures and
stresses, overused injuries in athletes, whiplash trauma and conditions like fibromyalgia
or arthritis can produce muscular or "soft tissue" pain often characterized by
what many medical professionals call "trigger points." These small, hyperirritable
sites in the muscle tissue sometimes refer pain to other locations as in headaches
Sometimes, pain can be so severe, persistent or wide spread that
it requires radical medical intervention. In many cases, however, pain management
clinicians and medical researchers have found that trigger point pain often responds
to non-invasive, firm, physical pressure, deep in the muscle tissue. This treatment
approach may be referred to as "ischemic compression," "myofascial release" "neuromuscular
therapy," "acupressure", "myotherapy" and deep tissue massage among many other
terms. All of these and related disciplines typically involve deep, sustained
pressure directly on trigger points. Such pressure usually causes the muscle to
relax, making it possible to stretch and eventually exercise back to pain-free
fitness and health.
Deep muscle therapy tools allow both patient and care givers
to apply the same kind of pressure to painful muscles as a regular part of everyday
self-care. Our tools can effectively supplement professional therapeutic care
for relieving muscular pain, stiffness and dysfunction.

We all have muscles that
occasionally get sore. It might go unnoticed until we reach for something, or
bend over. Sometimes a twist or turn is all it takes. This might produce a crick
in your neck or a hot spot between your shoulder blades. Either way it can hurt
