The foam roller and using it today.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Four words ouch, ouch, ouch, and nausea. What does this tell me.... well for one I have put off having my massage for much too long and secondly, I absolutely have to have my 8+ glasses of water today. Why you ask? Well when you massage knots out or have someone else massage them out you release toxins into your body and you need to make sure you flush them out with lots of water. Even though it really hurt when I used it, the foam roller is one of the best things I have gotten for myself in a really long time. I am so glad I did it. I was about to do my cardio for the day but my youngest has decided that she must take her afternoon nap on my exercise mat. So, I am gonna relax and hydrate and hopefully do my cardio this evening.

    Do I like it? absolutely. I have muscular sciatica. My muscles tighten up and don't release on their own which means that before this I was in a lot of pain a lot of the time. This might not be the solution for every one but for about 20.00 I have found something that works for me. A massage is $40+ dollars for only 30 minutes here. I got the same results in 15 minutes. I highly recommend it. Again, warning it hurts a lot while you are doing in it.
