Chronic pains and illnesses have become extremely common and people who are suffering from this experience a lot of pressure, constant pain, soreness, and stiffness.

One method that has become popular among people is trigger point massage therapy.

For those who have never heard about trigger point massage therapy – the trigger points are areas in the skeletal muscles that have been compressed or tied into knotted lumps which causes pain and extreme discomfort. In trigger point massage therapy, one applies pressure to the trigger area to release pain. The most common places for having trigger points are the neck, shoulders, and back, but then these points or knots can manifest in almost any muscle and any part of the body.
Massaging or unknotting the trigger points is a quite challenging thing. It needs a lot of hands-on knowledge and expertise along with experience. Zen massage therapy has licensed and certified therapists who are focused on the detection and release of trigger points in the body.
Many muscles in our body tense up and spasm which then causes severe pain – not treating them and overusing the pain under stressful circumstances can cause more problems. Thus, trigger point massage therapy is the way to release tension from these areas and the mind while promoting the natural healing of the body. A non-invasive, simple, and relaxing massage that helps you avoid tons of medicines and surgeries while also providing you additional benefits.
Our bodies do need some kind of therapy or massages from time to time and since it has become one of the best alternatives to traditional pain relief methods – more and more people are inclined towards it. If you are feeling hesitant about trigger point massage therapy, here are some benefits that might change your mind.
Trigger point massage therapy is known for alleviating pain and untying knots but this particular therapy has several other benefits as well. One of which is improved blood circulation. Often tight and stressed muscles restrict the blood flow in our body which causes dizziness, headaches, fatigue, and of course – pain. The trigger point massage therapy helps to loosen up the tight muscles which not only enhance circulation but also elevates energy levels.
Reduced Tension and Stress
many things are happening simultaneously in our lives that cause stress and tension. Dealing with it on daily basis just adds more level of stress and elevates our anxiety. Trigger point massage therapy helps to relax and enhance the overall state of the body.
Tight muscles, spasms, and knots lead to creating hindrances in our bodies which makes it difficult for us to move freely. Our range of motion and flexibility gets greatly affected by it and we feel difficulty and irritation when it comes to carrying out our daily life activities. Trigger point massage therapy helps to release such tight muscles and restores your range of motion and improves flexibility.
Increased Energy Levels
You will face a major loss of energy when you have tight muscles. When your muscles are tight your body has to work even harder and have to push hard to work. This way the tightness of muscles increases and the trigger point massage therapy helps to release the tightness while enhancing motion and increasing levels of energy.
When your body feels light and muscles are not targeted by soreness and extreme pressure then you will have better sleep. The pain and discomfort that comes with tight muscles and knots are extremely high and disrupt falling asleep and staying asleep. Sleeping is the most integral part of our life and trigger point massage therapy helps in improving sleep by releasing stress and pain.
Calms Down The Nervous System
Trigger point massage therapy has a very calming satisfying effect on our central nervous system it is because when the muscles release their soreness and tension. Once your muscle is relaxed, you will sleep better, and your nervous system will relax.
As we have mentioned above that many of the trigger points are found in the neck and upper back area and one of the most common things both of these things cause is headaches, which are quite frequent. To simply get rid of these frequent headaches, one can use trigger point massage therapy.
