Self-massage tools have come a long way over the past couple of decades. Foam rollers, vibrating foam rollers, muscle roller sticks, massage balls, EMS machines, etc etc.

Whatever your tool of choice, self-massage tools have been shown to:

– Increase range of motion
– Increase blood flow to target areas, supporting the flushing of metabolic waste
– Reduce the length and severity of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)
– Target and remove muscle knots
– Help kickstart recovery by “jostling” ligaments and tendons surrounding key muscles
