Trigger Point Massage Benefits

Trigger point massage was developed in the 1940s and is a type of massage therapy that applies pressure to the muscles to relieve pain and correct discomfort or dysfunction in other parts of the body. Instead of working on just the muscles themselves, trigger point massage therapy focuses on the sheath the surrounds your muscles.

Trigger points are the specific sore spots that muscles get, and are also known as knots. Sometimes they aren’t felt until massage therapy is applied. Trigger points will often lie dormant in the muscles and will cause physical pain once stress, tension, pressure or movement triggers the pain.

Trigger point therapy can help release these knots and relieve the pain that is caused by them, including headaches and severe neck pain. When it comes to sports massage, trigger point therapy can release knots and improve athletic performance, stamina, endurance and energy. Knots can impede the range of motion, and trigger therapy is targeted to fix this.

Some of the many benefits that come with trigger point massage therapy include pain relief, joint soreness alleviation, decreased inflammation, improved sleep patterns, relaxation, and stress reduction.
