Rumble Roller

Price: $45 – $70

As we age working out the facia in your muscles and releasing the knots can prevent injuries that you might incur from everyday exercise or weekend activities.  I use one of these on a daily basis to keep my flexibility up. The specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist allowing the gentle rolling to knead the contours of your body, gently stretching soft tissue (muscle and fascia) in multiple directions. This action erodes trigger points, helps restore flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain.
