Long periods of sitting, strenuous training or bad posture can cause trigger points to develop and thicken. This leads to unpleasant or painful tension in the body. With the 2 Trigger tools from the BLACKROLL® TMX® MIXED SET you can trigger these pain areas on the body in a targeted manner and thus promote faster regeneration of the tissue. The 2 cm and 3 cm heads of the BLACKROLL® TMX® TRIGGER products act like a physiotherapist's thumb: Muscular tensions are counteracted by localised, long-lasting and deep acupressure.
How do the 2 Triggers in the set differ?
Both trigger products are suitable for the treatment of muscular tension and for the treatment of acutely painful areas.
The BLACKROLL® TMX® TRIGGER with 3 cm head is especially suitable for large muscle groups and the lower extremities (e.g. calf, sole of the foot, thigh, buttocks).
The BLACKROLL® TMX® TRIGGER PLUS with a 2 cm head has a more intensive effect and is especially suitable for narrow muscle groups and the upper extremities (e.g. shoulder/neck area, lumbar spine, elbows, forearms/upper arms).
The BLACKROLL® TMX® trigger tools are made from certified beech wood. This makes them extremely resilient. The products are sustainably produced in Germany in a support organisation. The black paint with Aqua Colorlack is free of chemicals and pollutants.
The right thing for everyone: our Trigger range
The BLACKROLL® TMX TRIGGER and BLACKROLL® TMX TRIGGER PLUS are also available separately.

With the cooperation between BLACKROLL® and TMX®, we are pursuing a common goal: to release the origins of all myofascial adhesions. It almost sounds too good to be true. But when two ambitious and successful experts in the fields of pain therapy, health and sports join forces, the result is not just a pure product cooperation. The result is a partnership that is about science, innovative solutions - and the next level of myofascial self-treatment. And so it was with BLACKROLL® and TMX®.
In the further development of our products, at BLACKROLL® we have always worked only with the most important experts in medicine, sports and therapy. The results of the world's leading fascia researchers are permanently incorporated. Ever since our founding, we have seen ourselves as part of a rapidly changing world, and we embrace this as a real opportunity. An opportunity to make better decisions for the future and to inspire each other.
With TMX® we have found the perfect partner. The young sports medicine company based in Cologne, Germany, has set itself the goal of using a holistic knowledge of the functioning of the musculoskeletal system to help as many people as possible in the long term to be able to treat acute and chronic pain through accompanying self-treatment. And to do so at any time, from anywhere. TMX® is based on traditional medical, therapeutic and holistic approaches, coupled with many years of experience.
The special thing here is that BLACKROLL® TMX® tools not only treat trigger points in a targeted and effective manner, but they also loosen the deep-lying myofascial adhesions in the septum area that were previously difficult to reach and can also apply the physical therapist's thumb precisely. It is therefore not surprising that the wooden "BLACKROLL® by TMX®" triggers have also been certified as medical products because they precisely reflect the mode of action of acupressure.
A Sticky Pad is attached underneath the trigger. The adhesive material allows you to attach the trigger to almost any wall. This makes it easier for you to use on the wall, as the trigger cannot slip or fall off. The sticky pad is removable, so you can use your trigger flexibly - even on the floor or by hand. We recommend that you use the cover foil when you are not using the trigger on the wall. Please be sure to follow our application instructions before using for the first time.
Triggering is the most effective method from Manual Therapy that we use. The input of the BLACKROLL® TMX® TRIGGER opens new doors in the self-treatment of myofascial symptoms. It is good to know that the mobile "physiotherapeutic thumb" is always with you.
