Tennis Ball Trigger Point Massage

Trigger point massage

Got any niggly aches in your bod right now? If you’ve got a tennis ball lying around, use it on these four common trigger points. This sequence is great for pre- or post-workout or anytime you need relief after a long day.

Myofascial trigger points are as irritable/congested spots in the fascia surrounding skeletal muscle. A tennis ball or trigger-point ball is great for targeted relief to manage minor aches and pains. It is easy to apply pressure directly to the point where discomfort is felt by using the floor, wall or any hard surface to stabilise the ball. For best results, build pressure and then roll the ball up and down, or in circles to release knots. Always remember to stay on the muscle, NEVER the bone. Use the breath to release the triggers.
