Self-massage techniques aim to target trigger points in the body & release tension in the connective tissues (fascia). The balls aim to restore the fascia, remove mobility restrictions, build tissue resilience & release tension in common areas of the body – head, neck, shoulders, arms, back, hips, legs & feet. For the best result, it takes only 30 seconds to 2/3 minutes at each trigger point. It feels like a deep tissue self-massage, & sometimes we can use props to add the massage – increase the pressure or decrease it to make it more comfortable.
We are affecting the whole fascia line/system using these self-massage techniques. For example, working with a ball on the front of the thigh can affect the fascia network & more distant body parts that run through the front body. Same as the back body/side-body/spiral through the torso. There is a TRANSMISSION EFFECT through the fascia network. Our FASCIA system looks chaotic, but it isn’t. It is part of a very efficient system.
