If you’re a patient at Integrated Wellness you’ve probably been introduced to the foam roller, a simple exercise used in our clinic to accelerate muscle recovery by soothing trigger points, or “muscle knots.”
Lauren Roxburgh is a body alignment specialist, movement healer, and author of the book, Taller, Slimmer, Younger – 21 Days to a Foam Roller Physique.
Check out her foam rolling videos on Facebook or YouTube, to improve alignment, relieve sore muscles and pain from injury, reduce stress, and more. We love this one for rolling out the day before rolling into bed.
FOAM ROLLING TO BETTER SLEEP IN 5 MINUTES
Nothing is better than treating yourself to the many benefits of getting an actual massage regularly, but nightly self-massage via foam roller is a great substitute in between your spa sessions. It mimics what massage can do by applying pressure to sensitive areas, releasing tension, restoring movement and rejuvenating muscles. Added plus, foam rollers are inexpensive; just purchase online, or grab one at Target.
If you have more serious realignment needs, come see us! We can help relieve pain quickly and restore proper functioning through our varied healing modalities, including Chiropractic, Laser and Theragun therapy, Advanced Stem Cell Therapy, nutritional IV “cocktails”, etc., and more foam roller exercises specific to your individual needs from our rehab team.
