Foam Rollers - Self Myofascial Release, Self Massage and Massaging & Stretching Tight Muscles
The Multi-Roller (two or three foam rollers connected to each other) was designed to facilitate self myofascial release by distributing one’s weight over multiple rollers.
The Multi-Roller is a versatile foam roller whereby you can use one, two or three foam rollers for:
Distributing weight over two or three 6 inch high density foam rollers gives you the ability to increase or decrease your weight over pressure points, thereby reducing the possibility of injuring or aggravating the affected area where self myofascial release is taking place.

The multi foam roller stretches muscles, tendons and breaks down adhesions and scar tissue.
Adhesions is a term used in sports medicine that means an abnormal adherence of soft tissue (collagen fibers) to surrounding structures, It often occurs after an injury, trauma or during immobilization following injuries. Adhesions restrict normal movement and elasticity of the structures involved.
Our Multi Foam Roller helps break up adhesions through self-massage or self myofascial release. This helps with stretches muscles, but it also breaks down soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue.
When you use your own body weight you’re able to increase or decrease the amount of pressure on the desired area. This results in breaking up trigger points, soothing tight fascia and increasing blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues.
How It Works
Fascia is a soft connective tissue just under the skin. It covers, wraps and connects all muscles, bones, nerves and blood vessels of the body. Muscle and fascia make up what is called the myofascia system. Lack of exercise, not enough stretching, or injuries, can cause the muscle tissue and fascia to become bound or adhered with each other. Most commonly called adhesion, it can result in muscle pain, soreness and restricted muscle movement or reduced range of motion.
Myofascial release is also helpful to relieve joint and muscle pains such:
Myofascial release is a form of massage that uses constant and sustained pressure on the muscles and fascia which causes lengthening and softening of the fascia which helps break down scar tissue and adhesions between skin, bone, muscle and joints.
