In brief: Deep massage
Trigger points are taut bands of muscle that are tender to palpation.
Trigger point release involves applying deep pressure with or without massage to "release" or loosen the muscle tissue.

In brief: Soft tissue therapy
The myofascial release approach is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and resulting pain and restriction of motion.
It is a treatment described by andrew taylor still, founder of osteopathy/osteopathic medicine, and his early students, which uses continual palpatory feedback to achieve release of myofascial tissues.
