What types of massage sticks are there?

Fascia sticks are available in innumerable variations with different application focuses. There are, for example, very short sticks that are ideal for traveling and on the move and very long sticks that are particularly good for massaging large muscle areas such as the back. They also differ in their material and thus in their degree of hardness. Higher degrees of hardness are better suited for professional athletes, people with strong connective tissue or advanced athletes. Beginners and people with sensitive and weak connective tissue should start their fascial training with a softer degree of hardness. The surface also differs in the form of different corrugation patterns in the fascia massage sticks. One has a smooth surface and the other has different notches (e.g. The Grid). This ensures an even more intensive massage, which reaches down to the lowest muscle layers and thus treats the trigger points even more effectively. Of course, in the age of technology, there are also massage sticks with battery-powered vibration therapy. An example of this is the Blackroll Releazer, which uses targeted pressure and massaging movements to make even strongly bonded fascia fabric supple again.

The use of the Massage Stick stimulates blood circulation and provides your cells with new nutrients. You can massage yourself with the Fitness Stick or have it treated by another person.

How is the Massage Stick applied?

The Massage Stick is suitable for use on all areas of the body. You or another person roll over the hardened or painful spot and look for the trigger point. Once you've found it, treat it again intensively and isolate it to dissolve the adhesive. Don't be afraid. You don't have to worry about exposing yourself to pain. Of course, you should work with a certain intensity to edit the trigger point, but you set your pain threshold individually. You can easily massage your thighs and calves yourself. It gets a little harder on the back. Find a partner and lie on the floor in a prone position. Your training partner will stand or sit next to you and massage you in the affected areas. You have to be careful not to do it hectically and too quickly. It's important to massage slowly from one spot to the other and stay longer at the trigger points. Also give your partner feedback on the pressure so he doesn't hurt you.
