Who needs a masseuse when you can roll around over a foam log to loosen up muscles and make yourself feel better after an intense workout or a long week? Well, okay nothing can replace the therapeutic feel of a massage but in between visits to the spa, it’s a good idea to have a foam roller on hand. For those unfamiliar with the practice, it is simply self-massage to release muscle tightness or trigger points. This helps your muscles to recover by increasing blood flow to your muscles and improving your mobility.
