The perfect foam roller for your spine

The aim of Foam rolling is to activate fasciae and muscles optimally. Rolling over bones and vertebrae is not only painful, but also prevents the massage roll from optimally reaching the glued fasciae. Foam roller with a central recess such as our HEAL and ALPHA models have been specially developed for loosening adhesions on the back. The recess completely absorbs the extensions of the vertebrae and thus protects them from pressure. At the same time, the transverse or longitudinally striped structure of the fascia can process the mostly particularly hardened areas directly next to the spine with optimum pressure. If you mainly want to work your back from the lumbar region via the thoracic region up to the neck, you should buy a foam roller, which has a spine recess. Also for other body areas such as the arms or legs a massage roller with a central recess is best suited.

Here roles are needed which correspond to your needs and are up to your requirements. These may be a little harder and have a distinctive structure.

The right fascial roll for cellulite

Fascial training has many advantages. Our muscles remain elastic, we are not so susceptible to injuries, the blood flow to the cells is stimulated and by stimulating the fascia the body produces important collagen. Collagen provides firm skin and inhibits the development or spread of cellulite. As our body stops producing collagen more and more with age, it is up to us to revive production with a healthy diet, endurance and weight training as well as targeted fascial training. Fascia rolls of medium hardness and structure are ideal for fighting cellulite as they enable a deep connective tissue massage. The structures of the fascia rolls are often modelled on the human fingertips, which simplifies selective massage of the affected areas.

The right fascia roll for yoga exercises

Our fasciae remain supple when we stretch them extensively and keep them moving. Elastic connective tissue ensures vitality, mobility, a better posture and less susceptibility to tension. This goes hand in hand with a better feeling of well-being, inner calmness and thus a higher quality of life. Fascia training therefore has some similarities to yoga and can be ideally integrated into the exercises. In fascia yoga the muscle ligaments are stretched and the deep lying connective tissue is stimulated and loosened by light pressure. Both rollers and balls are suitable for exerting pressure on the various muscle areas. Since functional training but also relaxation is important for fascia yoga, Fascia rolls and Fascia balls of medium hardness are recommended.
