Fitness is not just about the workout, but overall muscle health, injury prevention, and a positive mental state. Yet many athletes and fitness enthusiasts experience aches and pains, unaware of what is causing their discomfort or how to treat it. Massage therapists know that muscles can develop trigger points, or small adhesions in soft tissue, especially after a workout. These trigger points can cause pain as they pull on other muscles, tendons, and joints. Releasing these trigger points is one of the effects of deep tissue or sports massage. You may already know that massage can relieve muscle pain and tension – but not everyone can afford a masseuse.
