Trigger Point started as a research project for Cassidy Phillips, a well-trained athlete who suffered from fibromyalgia. Phillips needed to find a solution for the continuous pain throughout his body. Cassidy spent years researching his condition and refused to settle with doctor's recommendations of never training again. During his research, Phillips worked heavily in trigger point therapy, which utilizes key areas of the body to release tension and create blood flow to the area. The therapy was working for him except that it was difficult to work on himself. His solution was to find a material that mimicked the pressure and accuracy of a thumb. He needed a material with significant denseness that could change shape and manipulate the muscle. He finally developed a patented material that changes shape after five to seven seconds, thus aiding in penetrating the belly of the muscle safely and effectively when ample pressure is applied, much like traditional massage. The techniques used with Trigger Point can be used by the average person at home with minimal training.
