Trigger point massage can provide a range of benefits, including:
Pain relief: Trigger point massage can help relieve pain caused by muscle tension, knots, and trigger points. The pressure applied during the massage can help release tension in the muscle fibers, reduce inflammation, and promote the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers.

2. Improved flexibility and range of motion: Tight muscles can limit your range of motion and flexibility. Trigger point massage can help loosen and lengthen these muscles, allowing you to move more freely and comfortably. It also relaxes hypertonic (or very tight muscles)
3, Reduced muscle tension: Trigger point massage can help reduce muscle tension, which can lead to improved posture, reduced stress, and better overall physical and mental well-being.
4. Improved circulation: The deep pressure or negative pressure from cups applied during trigger point massage can help improve blood flow to the affected muscles, promoting healing and reducing inflammation.
5. Headache relief: Trigger point massage can help alleviate tension headaches and migraines by releasing tension in the muscles of the neck, shoulders, and head.
6. Improved athletic performance: Athletes can benefit from trigger point massage as it can help improve muscle flexibility, reduce the risk of injury, and promote faster recovery after intense physical activity.
Overall, trigger point massage can be an effective way to relieve pain, improve flexibility and range of motion, and promote relaxation and overall well-being. We love it!
