Roller Therapy Yoga
Roller Therapy has been proven to be the best form of treating the fascia of our bodies . It's gentle yet so effective. Myofasia is a fibrous network of collagen and elastin and if this becomes restricted through not stretching it can become like glue and stick together which makes the mobility of the muscle not work correctly causing pain. Myofasia roller therapy has proven effective in the treatment of: muscle aches and pains, headaches and migraines, arthritis, Whiplash, scar tissue damage, depression, emotional conditions, poor circulation, low immune system, IBS and digestive disorders, anxiety and stress and insomnia but is in no way limited to this list! You do have to get your own roller and bring it to class.
