Trigger point massage with the Zen Core Massage Peanuts & Trigger Balls
The Zen Core Massage Balls & Peanuts offer an incredible opportunity for the Do-It-Yourself triggerpoint massage. Originally, Zen Core started with sports socks, but now they have more to offer. With the Zen Core massage products, the painful triggerpoints can be optimally treated and the tensions in the muscles are released. But not every massage ball and every massage peanut is the same. Here you can find out everything about the different Zen Core Triggerpoint Massage products.
Zen Core Triggerpoint Massage Ball Set
Due to the three different degrees of hardness, you can ideally massage the tension of the body parts:
Yellow -> easy
Orange -> medium
Red -> hard
Depending on the strength of the tension, the area of the body to be treated and your personal feelings, you can switch between the different degrees of hardness. We recommend that you massage the tense area for at least eight seconds, but not for longer than a minute. The Zen Core massage balls are available individually, but also in a pack of three. The rubber-made Zen Core balls release muscle tension all over the body and they are also very easy to use. You can convince yourself of this with our Zen Core Massage Tutorial.
Zen Core Triggerpoint Massage Peanuts Set
Again, there are three different degrees of hardness, with which you can massage the tense body parts:
Yellow -> easy
Orange -> medium
Red -> hard
You can switch between the hardships depending on the strength of the tension and your personal feelings. You should massage every tight spot for at least eight seconds, but not for more than a minute. The Zen Core Massage Peanuts are available individually, but also in a three pack. The Zen Core Peanuts are mainly used on the back along the spine. They take the pressure off the spine and massage the muscle strands on the back. The distance between the two balls protects the back and ensures that the muscles next to the spine can be optimally reached. Also, the massage peanuts are not difficult to use. For this we have also prepared a little tutorial for you.
Zen Core Triggerpoint Massage Peanut Soft
This Massage Peanut is also ideal for relieving tension. Also, you should massage here the tense area for at least 8 seconds, but not more than a minute. It is an optimal massage device that is applicable to the entire body. However, it has been optimally tailored to the back, as already explained in the Massage Peanut Set. The differences to the Peanuts included in the set is the material, because instead of normal rubber, which has cavity in the middle, we have here soft rubber without cavity. The Peanut is thus a little stronger and more stable and can release even stronger tension and it can be applied even more pressure. How easy it is to apply the Zen Core Massage Peanut Soft can be seen in our tutorial.
Zen Core Massage Peanut Double Lax Hard
With this optimal massage device, any tension on the whole body can be alleviated. To do this, massage the tense area for at least 8 seconds, but not longer than a minute. As already mentioned, the product is applicable to the entire body. The shape of the Zen Core Massage Peanut Double Lax Hard adapts optimally to the back or the spine. The difference to the peanuts and the soft peanut included in the set is the material, because instead of normal rubber, which has a cavity in the middle or the soft rubber, we have here a peanut made entirely of rubber and without a cavity. Thus, it is better suited for strong tension. There is also the peanut in a variety of colors. The simple application is shown in our Zen Core Duoball Tutorial.

What is a triggerpoint massage?
80 - 90% of all pain syndroms are due to localized muscle dysfunction and muscle hardening. The triggerpoints themselves are very small and often cause no pain, which makes them harder to track down. By transferring the pain to other, distant parts of the body, triggerpoints become a problem. For example, muscle hardening in the neck often causes a tension headache. In a triggerpoint massage, these Points are then pressed or massaged, whereby the pain, such as the tension headache, are alleviated.
Application of triggerpoint massage
The different shapes and degrees of hardness of the Zen Core massagers allow professional treatment of the triggerpoints. You can be flexibly and conveniently used wherever you want.
The self-administered Triggerpoint massage is also called myofascial relaxation and has been mentioned for some time in many training plans. The triggerpoint massages are painful, we must mention at this point. However, that the way of improving performance can be painful, every athlete knows that.
It is important for the use of the Zen Core massage device that you do not necessarily have to go to the maximum limit of pain during your own massage. Excessive pressure can cause additional tension instead of relaxation. An increase in the intensity of the Triggerpoint massage can be achieved, for example, by first applying the Zen Core massage device vertically to the wall and only lying on the floor in the second step.
Effect of triggerpoint massage
The Triggerpoint Massage is not only used for acute pain, but also to fix the adhesions in the muscles. These are mainly due to lack of exercise or lack of fluid intake. In the long term, muscle adhesions provide a restriction in the range of motion, an increased risk of injury and a reduction in performance.
With targeted and regular massages, it is possible to increase muscle elasticity, prevent muscle fatigue and improve performance. Which athlete can say no?
