Target Muscles That Need It Most

Halfmoon - Target Muscles That Need It Most

Our bodies are amazing—for so many reasons. Try opening and closing your hand for a moment. Yep, those are your muscles working hard to help you move. Muscles and fascia (aka connective tissue) are a powerful duo to be admired. The reality is, you couldn't move independently without them. From sitting to standing to working out, your muscles keep you upright and charging forward in life.

It's no surprise then that hard-working muscles get tired. They protest, they tighten, they ache, they knot up and they yell. That's when we recommend calling in for support, whether it be a trusted massage therapist or, more immediately, your favourite at-home deep release massage tool.

3. Roll a Mini Massage Ball to the center of your foot, then to the edges and then your heel. Pause in the spots that feel really good. Oh yeah.

4. Great one for the office. Roll a Mini Massage Ball gently around your neck and shoulders. Sweet, sweet release.

What if we could intentionally direct our attention to improve our energy and focus on what is important?
