SELF-MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (SMFR)
Wooden Body rolling is a technique where you “roll” your body on a foam roller or ball to create muscle compression, similar to the effect of a deep tissue massage. Every structure in your body is covered in a layer of fascia, from your muscles to your blood vessels. The condition of the fascial layer is important to your overall health. Myofascial adhesions can lead to pain, discomfort and decreased flexibility. Rolling helps break up these adhesions in your fascia.
Body rolling or “Self Myofascial Release” SMFR is a practice that supplements a healthy lifestyle. The practice has been documented to increase tissue oxygen levels helping to maintain healthy tissue and muscle strength, and help increase range of motion by releasing muscles that are difficult to access through stretching alone. Body rolling improves arterial heart function, aides in lymphatic drainage, raises tissue oxygen and releases endorphins. After just a few minutes of rolling you feel lighter, energized and more fluid. A regular wooden body roller practice can alleviate chronic pain and help establish better postural balance by releasing deep muscle tension and increasing joint range of motion. Enjoy!
