A trigger point massage focuses on areas of the body that are known as trigger points. A trigger point, which can also be called a trigger site or a muscles knot, is generally an isolated area in a muscle group that can cause pain, numbness, tingling, and other discomforts in other areas of the body that are not even remotely close to the specific muscle, or trigger point.more
Stretching is important for everyone to do, especially athletes. Stretching helps to loosen muscles, prevent injury, and can help improve flexibility. Many people don’t stretch before or after their workouts because they don’t have time, it hurts, or they don’t see a point.more
Exercise is a great for a lot of things. Regular exercise can help reduce stress, allow you to feel better physically and mentally, and can help you stay in shape. But regular exercise can leave your muscles feeling sore. That sore feeling can give you a sense of accomplishment and prove that you pushed yourself hard, but it can also be painful and last for a few days.
Massage can help reduce muscle soreness that occurs after exercise by reducing inflammation and stimulating cell repair. The Nest mentions that this cell repair allows for muscle cells to recover from injury and help muscle adapt to increased exercise.more
Finding the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day can be more stressful than finding the perfect Christmas or birthday present. This is a day that represents love and the gift you get for your significant other should be something special and that you know they will love. This shouldn’t be an ordinary gift, like the shoes you get for them each year on their birthday. It should be a gift that is special, that means something, and that comes from the heart.
Chocolates and a beautiful bouquet of flowers are easy gifts that are the usual go-to during this day of love. Jewelry is another popular choice. While these gifts may be great for one or two Valentine’s Days, you will need to switch it up eventually and start finding gifts with more meaning or that your girl will truly love!more

Our bodies are not going to stay limber and pain free forever, and as we slowly age, we often times wake up with pains that we have no recollection of the cause. While pain can be distracting and hard to deal with day after day, there are things that can be done to reduce the pain we feel.
Some pain can be taken care of with stretches and exercise, other pain can be dealt with by getting a massage or icing the area. A myofascial release can help in areas like the back, hips, shoulder, and any other area of the body where soft tissue is present.more
