When muscles get out of balance is when trouble starts!
Every muscle has a role, and the balance of the system is integral to the health and happiness of the human. So when muscles get too tight in one spot, and won’t let go easily, is there a way to get them to cooperate faster?
This has been a recurring problem for clients this week, and I have an idea for you…
Do you happen to own some sort of massage tool? I’ll bet you do as lots of things will work in a pinch. Consider a dryer ball, a smooth rock, a spatula, spoon…or something fancy like the Opove G3 Pro massage tool or fascia blaster.
You want something to dig into the muscle, and here’s the trick:
Put that muscle on a stretch before you dig in!
What do I mean by that?
For instance: the outside of your hip is tight. Try crossing your foot on your knee, bringing out the tightness. Now turn on your Opove, or grab your fascia blaster, or scoop up your spoon …and dig into the tight spot as you let it stretch for our favorite ninety seconds.
Not only will you get the stretch, but also break up any surface fascia adhesions or restrictions those fibers have imposed.
It’s a win-win!
Here’s a quick video demonstration on how easy it is to combine two great muscle concepts: stretch and massage, simultaneously!
Let me know in the comments below how you like the combo. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Here are easy links to purchase these two items.
