I've just published my first website. It's for a product I've invented called Theralign.
What is Theralign? Theralign is an invitation to maintain alignment while rolling away your pain. It's a better way to take care of your body.
As a Physical Therapist, specializing in Myofascial Release, I got frustrated with the foam rollers in the market. I've noticed that the foam rollers are getting more dense and some even have grids on it. They work but.......it hurts!
I also know that fascia and trigger points take time to unravel and unwind itself. You are less likely to spend time on a foam roller because of the pain, so at the most, you are hitting the superficial fascial layer. Guess what? Fascia is dense and it covers us from head to toe! it also goes deeply into the bone and even bone has its own fascial covering. So it's like leaving before you get to the good stuff.
Pain also triggers body's flight or fight response. You are actually ramping up your nervous system while on a foam roller. Theralign activates the body's relaxation response. The relaxed state allows for more tissue to be available for stretching and releasing. Since your body is relaxed, you will find a sweet spot called "good pain" while rolling on the Theralign. This is like when someone finds your sore spot and stays on it until you go "ahhhh".
I recommend staying on your "sweet spots" for at least 3 minutes each. Don't rush. take the time to give your body what it craves.
Questions? hit me up. I'm excited to tell you more about Theralign.
