Motor points are specific points in muscles which are located along motor nerve pathways and are used to treat pain conditions and improve movement.
Stimulating motor points:
Releases contracted muscle
Improves blood circulation
Corrects motor inhibition
Restores functional movement patterns
Increases muscle strength
Improves range of motion
Restores normal proprioception
I received motor point training from two prominent USA-based masters of motor point acupuncture, Rich Hazel and Dan Dominquez. Rich has a busy practice in New York and Dan is the Buffalo Bill's (NFL team 🏈) team acupuncturist. Using motor points, Dan works to optimise these professional athletes' performance and recovery, ensuring they're primed for game day.
