About time to sum up the benefits of myofascial release with BLACKROLL®
Supported by scientific research and used by a wide range of athletes and therapists for treatments, it is becoming the number one tool for fascial intervention. The muscular system can function, and is basically held together, because of an important but often overlooked tissue: the fascia. Collectively, this connective tissue, which surrounds and interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve and organ, comprises a three-dimensional full bodysuit that provides a network of support and structure for the body. The fascia have a huge influence on how we move, on our posture,our perception of pain and the muscular system. It is these elements of the body where myofascial release focuses on to prevent muscle ache and improve recovery of the muscles to eventually increase physical mobility, flexibility and thereby our performance.
SMR, which stands for “self myofascial release”, is an effective way to ease tension and adhesions in the muscles and its surrounding fascia. BLACKROLL® offers qualitative tools with various densities (soft-standard-hard rolls and balls) to target these tensions, providing an intense massage of the muscles and fascia, which has an equal effect as a sport massage at a fraction of the cost. Injuries from overuse, inflammation or even surgery can cause the fascia to scar or harden, which will give you that unwelcome stiff feeling which restricts the body to be optimally mobile and flexible. Through self massage, hydration of the fascia is stimulated “pinned and stretched” and that will improve and restore the range of (joint) motion, reduce muscle pain and prevent typical (sports-) injuries.
BLACKROLL® SCIENTIFICALLY BACKED – YOU BETCHA…
BLACKROLL® is scientifically-backed. Two years ago, when I attended the World Fascial Congress representing BC RMT’s and as a Presenter of Functional Fascial Taping, I had the good fortune of meeting and discussing “Fascia” with Dr. Robert Schleip. It was through these discussions that I decided to bring BLACKROLL’S® unsurpassed quality to Canada to help balance the lives of health-conscious people.
Here is what Dr. Schleipp, Direktor, Fascia Research Project, Universitat Ulm, has to say about the BLACKROLL® Product, “I am thrilled by the large variety of applications with the BLACKROLL®. The possibility to moderate the pressure by using different techniques of relief, allows us a wide range of therapeutic use. Detailed tests with patients show excellent results.”
USE BLACKROLL® before and after your training or just to jump start your day
BLACKROLL® improves your sport performance, and your posture hence your overall well-being – by experiencing relief from pain and stiffness. With BLACKROLL® it is possible to perform exercises that aim at balance work as well which stabilize and further mobilize your body. To achieve this, BLACKROLL® produces various “roll-out tools” to work with, using your own bodyweight and strength to prepare and regenerate the muscular system and improve the blood circulation.
Improving blood circulation will not only get you warmed but it will improve oxygen and nutrient rich blood to flow and can help benefit the heart and the body’s muscles and arteries. Your skin, which reflects your energy level and health, will benefit as well since increased blood circulation will fasten the removal of metabolic wastes and toxins from your cells. In short: it will help you look and feel healthy.
Try BLACKROLL® yourself, and notice how your fitness, performance and overall well-being improve with just little effort!
Note: Always contact your doctor before starting any exercise program, particularly if you have an illness, chronic condition or injury, to reduce the risk of harm. I do not endorse this product as a health care practitioner, but rather personally as an exercise enthusiast for preventative health. I was a dancer in my youth and physical fitness is part of my life. BlackRoll has done an excellent job at creating a superior product for “fascial release” and for just plain fun to incorporate into your regime. It is also light to travel with helping you to achieve your exercise goals abroad.
