There's a Trigger Point for That!

Being a trigger point therapist is kind of like being a private investigator, digging for clues to reveal the underlying causes of pain.  I will ask my client questions about their symptoms and their daily activities to pick out the prime suspects.

Being a trigger point therapist is kind of like being a private investigator, digging for clues to reveal the underlying causes of pain.  I will ask my client questions about their symptoms and their daily activities to pick out the prime suspects.

Patients will often mention other issues they don't think are related to their muscles, to which I will usually respond, "there's a trigger point for that!" 

Trigger point therapy not only relieves pain, but a host of other symptoms. In my practice, in addition to chronic pain, I've successfully treated neuropathy, heart arrhythmia, heartburn, carpal tunnel syndrome, urinary frequency or incontinence, breathing difficulties, vertigo, head fog, watery eyes, bags under the eyes, bunions, gout, nausea, tinnitus, and bursitis just to name a few.

So don't hold back, you might be pleasantly surprised to find there's a trigger point solution to more than just your pain!

Jennifer Liu is great to work with. She certainly knows what she is doing when it comes to myofascia pain, trigger points and referred pain. She explains everything in detail and makes you feel comfortable. She cares and wants to help. She will also give you exercises to take home to accelerate your progress. I highly recommend Jennifer.

Jen is extremely patient and proficient. She genuinely cares about the health and struggles of her patients. I look forward to my appointments because I know with each session, I am making progress to undoing years of chronic pain from muscle related tension and stress.

Jen is the best. She has so much knowledge and listens to what your problems are. I feel so much better afterwards . Trigger Point Therapy really works when you find a true trigger point therapist. Jen is that and more.

Jen is a great person, she taught me a lot of trigger points and how to do selftreatment, also for the first time I experienced referred pain and learn about trigger points that were affecting other areas of my body without even knowing.

Jen is amazing-She is very diligent, thorough and careful in her assessment; she shares information as she goes along; and she makes recommendations for simple self care. Jen has incredible technique. She has helped me enormously with ongoing back/shoulder pain. I'm a fan. Thank you, Jen!
