Self Massage

Massage has many benefits. Massaging the muscles can reduce inflammation and reduces levels of cortisol. Massage also helps to improve the range of motion in your body. The reason most people don’t go to massage therapy very often is  due to the cost. It can be very pricey for a one hour session. Although, if you have not tried it, I do recommend going at least one time.

There is a way that you can massage yourself using a foam roller. Foam rollers can be purchased at department stores or online. http://www.amazon.com/Super-High-Density-Roller-Black-36×6-Inch/dp/B00AMTAC9S/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1370342488&sr=8-2&keywords=foam+roller

After a workout along with your stretching, you use the foam roller to massage your muscles. Below is a chart that shows common exercises. Get your massage on today! See how much of a difference it makes. For further questions, send me an email.
