We all know this feeling, tight muscles across the shoulders, neck strain and reduced movement, that just gets worse and worse from being huddled over a desk all day.  Added with stress, anxiety and fatigue,  the body will react by further contracting the muscles. Eventually, bands or knots form in muscle tissue that will not release on their own. These painfully tight spots are called trigger points and can contribute to fatigue and insomnia. If not released, trigger points will worsen over time and can lead to functional problems.

Alarm bells sound and an appointment is made to see a massge therapist.  The massage feels wonderful having all those knots kneaded, yet the next day the familar aches are still there.  Most people who develop stress related trigger points often believe the only solution is a professional massage. Truthfully, there is no need to spend a spare hundred pounds on a professional massage to feel better for only a fleating moment. Studies have shown that a consistent self-massage routine can provide immediate relief and lasting results from stress related trigger points. With the right tools and just 15 minutes per day, you can relieve stress related trigger points, decompress your muscles and sleep better every night.

There is an endless choice of massaging tools on the market, each with their own purpose e.g.  soft foam rollers contour to the body to work tension out of the superficial muscles. Firm rollers, such as hollow core rollers, work deeper into the muscle tissue. Long rollers are ideal for working the full length of the spine, while shorter rollers are easy to maneuver for mobility exercises. The best rollers are textured to mimic the feeling of a massage therapist’s hands.

Make an investment and purchase rollers in a range of sizes.  In the long run both your body and your wallet will be thankful.
