When young athletes are limited by the collapses and strains found in the body before the core distortion (structural spiral) is released, they are handicapped from the start. In my work I use kinesiology to evaluate muscle strength and function related to the core distortion. What has become obvious is that there is a 40% – 60% loss of strength and function of at least 1/3 of the major muscle groups in every young athlete when they start their athletic career.
I began looking at some of the acupressure points and associated meridians and discovered a referral pattern that involved the neck, cranium and low back. Further research into specific trigger points that had pain referral zones related to the musculature of the head, neck and shoulders brought this referral pattern into greater focus. The most effective trigger points for releasing the muscles and tension in the neck and shoulder were also some of the more powerful acupressure points.
