Why Do You Need a
Myofascial Release Tool?

Having effective myofascial release tools

 allows you to integrate self-massage strategies into the mobility portion of your warmup and recovery phases.

When using your muscles in daily activities, fitness endeavors and in sports performance and training, damage can occur. However, this damage is part of the development, strengthening, and overloading process that our bodies experience.

Many high performing athletes and fitness enthusiasts have been incorporating myofascial release tools as a regular part of their practice for years. They understand that myofascial release yields healthy muscle and connective tissue which yields better mobility. And better mobility means fewer barriers to performance improvement as well as better protection against injury.

What to look for in a Myofascial Release Tool

To have full body support,

 it’s important to give attention to both your muscle tissue and connective tissue. In order to do that you will want either a set of tools or one versatile tool that gives you multiple options and functions. This will allow you to address multiple areas of tension, lack of mobility, and soreness.

Variable Intensity

Your ability to vary intensity

 will aid in your application of a variety of myofascial release therapies. The intensity level is based on the area of the body you are working on, the technique being applied, and your existing tolerance levels for myofascial release and pressure. It’s important to have a tool or set of tools that give you mild, moderate, and more aggressive options so that you consistently have what you need on hand for best results.

Look for easy-to-understand instructions with your myofascial release tool

 so that you can be confident using it on your own. If a tool seems overwhelming, lacks online video instruction, or is too complicated, it can be discouraging and a barrier to getting results. Also, having the right tool with you on the go for any myofascial release session really helps you successfully, safely, and consistently address problem areas of tension before or after your activity or sport.
