A simple name for a great moblity tool!
The Stick rolls knots out of muscle, providing myofascial release and trigger point therapy. This therapeutic procedure inactivates trigger points (muscle knots/kinks), warms muscle, increases circulation and encourages nutrient-rich blood flow. The Stick relieves pain, increases range of motion, promotes flexlibility and accelerates recovery.

How to use the Stick
- Typical warm-up is about 20 progressively deeper passes over each muscle group (about 30 seconds per area)
- Pain is experienced when the spindles locate a bump or tender knot in the muscle known as trigger points.
- Muscles containing triggerpoints are often weak, stiff and sore. They are frequently tight, easily tire and often hurt.
- Chronic trigger points need 20 additional passes over the involved area and may require attention several times daily.
