Research: ROLL and be happy?

by Eefje van de Ven October 06, 2015

Less pain, less stress and sadness and less dizziness was the result of simply rolling out the feet on a daily base.

Wait, really?!

An interesting study was performed by Christopher Gordon and Carmen Graf (et al.) - from the Centre of Integrative Therapy in Germany - who researched the relation between self massage of the plantar fascia (foot soles) and its effects on psycho-physiological states; the level of well-being, both physically and psychologically.

In this research, 37 test persons were observed. They got the assignment to self massage their foot soles for three weeks on a daily base for a minimum of 10 minutes, with the BLACKROLL® MINI.

The results were quite amazing. Next to effects on physiological well being (less pain, less stiffness, less dizziness) it became significant that some people simply felt less sad, distressed or disheartened. No wonder the worldwide Fascia Congress will pay attention to this study and its outcomes as a part of their convention this year which takes place in Washington DC.

We invite you to read the below for more the details on this research: "Myofascial self-help therapy with BLACKROLL® MINI"
