WHAT IS A MASSAGE ROLLER ?
A massage roller is a foam roller with a density that is more or less firm and which can use your body weight for deep massaging. For example, you can place the massage roller under your back while you lie down and move backwards and forwards to roll in under your back. Similarly, if you want to massage your calves, thighs or glutes, just place the roller under the relevant area and roll it.
It is the weight of your body that puts the pressure on your muscles, ensuring a deep and relaxing massage. You can always start off gently and then increase the pressure.
If you feel an area of tension, a more painful point (also known as a trigger point), be sure to work it properly.
