After a tough workout or a long day at work, you may feel tired, unfocused, and frazzled. As you are probably aware, stress and anxiety have a large effect on your body, particularly in muscle tissue. We often think of massage as an experience of relaxation and tranquility, but massage is also an important process that keeps the blood flowing through your muscles to alleviate tension. Spending a few minutes to give yourself a massage at the end of your day can have amazing effects on your tired nerves and leave you feeling relaxed and a little less stiff. So give your body a break and use some of these tools for a rejuvenating massage.
The cylindrical foam rollers are excellent for muscle tension over a large area of the body. Using one can help improve joint stability, posture, and mobility. You can utilize foam rollers to strengthen your muscles with the best alignment, to prevent injury. You can trigger the knots in your back, calves, hamstrings, and quads by placing the foam roller on the floor and rolling your target muscles over it, using the weight of your body to put pressure on a tender spot, or trigger point, and relieve tension. When you roll over a bump, focus on that spot until the knot is gone.
