There's a lot of new talk around this in the PT world. Muscle tension is, in large part, related to stress levels! So, jamming a ball or other tool in a knot it may not always be the best long-term solution. In my opinion, I love to pair these tools with some breath work, body awareness, and movement re-education to target the cause. It truly is individualized per person, though. For some, hot showers, jacuzzis, steam rooms, going for a run, even taking an ice bath are things I've heard of!
In an effort to bring some awareness and appreciation to the uniqueness of the human body, what is your favorite way to ditch some tension? There are no wrong answers! 😊
