‘Foam Rolling’, actual title ‘Myofascial Release’, is currently taking America by storm. Originally developed and used by Physiotherapists, this treatment is now offered by top fitness professionals who have seen it’s outstanding results and appreciate the potential benefits for us all. It’s applications are vast, here are some uses.
- Muscle soreness caused by tension
- Release of toxins
- Raise body temp during warm up phase of exercise
- Can be useful in the treatment of cellulite
- Increases circulation of blood
- Encourages weight loss when used as part of an exercise programme
- Maintenance and re-alignment of good posture
- Increases flexibility and suppleness
It works with a similar principle to a sports massage, however, after a little training you can perform this yourself.
I worked with a client recently who had muscular back pain for approx 2 years and within 3 sessions of Foam Rolling they felt freed of the pain cycle. I have had a similar experience when I suffered a muscular injury. I now use Foam Rolling to release my calves after years of constant high-heel wearing! I LOVE foam rolling, it’s addictive and you’ll be amazed by the results! Just realised this sounds like a mumbo-jumbo advert, it’s not, I genuinely recommend this to everyone!
