Hi, I'm Simeon Niel-Asher,  the person behind Trigger Points 3D.

Trigger Points 3D is an interactive model that maps-out all the trigger points in a dynamic environment. Making clinical practice and trigger point learning interesting, exciting and easy. My software is designed for Doctors, Physical Therapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists and Bodywork professionals (including students).

My goal is to combine my knowledge/expertise in Osteopathy and Trigger Points, to create a useful, simple and quick interactive software program. 

To do this, I spent many hours of collaboration with my colleagues so I could provide the most up-to-date and evidence-based pain maps available anywhere. And so, we created Trigger Points 3D, which will help you in the clinical encounter, learn better and have 'go-to maps' for easy everyday use.

Relieving Pain is our Passion
