Foam Rolling: Principles and Practices (Level 1; 4 hour)
New trigger point course coming to Houston! Self-myofascial release (SMR) has been shown to relieve muscle and joint pains and improve flexibility and range of motion. This 4-hour workshop teaches the fundamentals of myofascia, reviews the latest SMR research and then dives into the Trigger Point Performance SMR movement philosophy using the GRID foam roller. Participants walk away with practical knowledge and hands-on experience coaching and cueing movements that can be scaled to all-levels of general health and athletic clients for pre- and post-workout foam rolling.
Why do we love Self-Myofasical Release (SMR) at Valeo PT? Response from Paul – This is literally one of the first techniques we teach every new employee, volunteer, or student who comes through ValeoPT+FIT.
Number 1, it puts the power of rehab and recovery back in the hands of the person who owns the body. Our rehab philosophy is simple, we coach you on how to fix you, you must participate! This is why we love techniques that our clients can use at home, because they can work on their body’s a little all day long.
Number 2, SMR speeds the rehab/recovery process by increasing blood flow, decreasing muscle tension, and helps to break up adhesions/scar tissue. This is a nice article from Men’s Health.
Number 3, it is such an easy technique to incorporate into your daily life. You can literally carry one of TpTherapy’s Massage balls in your bag and get some release against your cubicle or office wall. It only takes 1-3 minutes. My personal favorite is the GRID, which will be the focus of the course this Sunday. I love that it is hollow, so I can stuff my training clothes in it and it then goes in my carry-on luggage.
Lastly, here is an intro video on the GRID.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
This is open to the public and is a Level 1 course so there are NO prerequisites to attend.
