1- Relieves muscle tension
- You can control the amount of pressure applied over the muscle.
2- Increases range of motion, mobility, and flexibility
- Lengthening your muscles increases your range of motion, therefore optimizing movement and function, and preventing injuries especially during exercise.
3- Increases blood flow
- In turn, this helps to remove lactic acid and aids in muscle recovery especially post-workout.
4- Breaks up scar tissue and adhesions
5- Helps to assist in preventing the occurrence of a hunched back posture
