Self-massage technique is important for healthy joints

A self massage technique using a Foam Roll (or Rolling Pin) before and after workout can provide great benefits to you. Rolling before workout allows your muscles to warm up more efficiently. Foam Rolling after a workout may help to aid in recovery from strenuous exercise. The foam roll should be used on a daily basis even if you are not working out.  

Massaging your muscles with a foam roll is more effective than holding stretches.  When you hold a stretch, it is called static stretching. Static stretching is old-school thought and massaging/rolling and dynamic stretching works so much better for health of joints and muscles.  Log onto to order your very own foam roll for your home.
