But most of us live in the real world and can afford an occasional massage, if ever. And, sad to say, some "massage therapists" aren't really very well-trained or effective. Massage has to go deep to be truly therapeutic. Is it realistic to think that you can perform a DIY massage on yourself? I think it is, but you have to be prepared to put some time and effort into it.
This foam roller is sturdy and a good size. When you buy it, you have access to a video that shows a number of techniques for using it to massage the muscles in your legs, back, and neck. They are demonstrated by a VERY handsome young man (not that I was looking) and the camera work is good. It's easy to see exactly how he is doing each of the twelve exercises. The video lasts a little over seven minutes, but don't plan on getting the full benefit of using the roller in that short time. For one thing, the video edits out the transitions between exercises. For another thing, some of the exercises are demonstrated on only one side. Obviously, you will have to switch and do them on BOTH sides.
So first you put your PC or iPad or whatever down on the floor so that you can see it. If you can "pause" that would be great. Otherwise, you will probably have to watch one or two exercises and turn it off while you practice and then go on to the next one or two. I did it that way. I've watched it five times and I'm beginning to work out a routine for myself.
The advantages to using this roller are that it's a low-cost, easy-to-store piece of exercise equipment that doesn't require much space or special clothing. I do use a yoga mat, but I have hardwood floors. Carpet should be fine. It also doesn't require good balance. After all, you're lying on the floor, not using it for a log-rolling contest. (I hope.) And it IS effective. Remember that you are using your own body weight (and most of us have plenty of that) to put pressure on your muscles.
The only disadvantages I can think of are that you have to be able to get down on the floor (and back up, obviously.) Also some of the leg exercises require that you put some of your weight on your shoulders and wrists. Since I am vulnerable in those areas, I modify those exercises somewhat. You are the best judge of what you can do safely.
**** I was given a free sample of this product in exchange for an honest review.**** I honestly think it's a great product, but simply OWNING one won't make a bit of difference. You have to use it regularly to get the benefits. I do believe it's helping me enough to make it worth my time to use it every day.
My husband and I used it for exercises prescribed by our Physical Therapist.
These exercises included using the roller to massage our mid-backs and lying atop of the roller with it aligned it under our spines while gently rocking side-to-side.
My husband and I are not big people. He weighs about 170 and I weigh about 135.
However, after less than 3 months of use, the roller collapsed. See the attached photos.
I am extremely disappointed in the quality of this product. It was a waste of my money. I urge you not to waste your money on this roller and to buy this one instead: OPTP PFR36B Pro-Roller Standard Density Foam Roller, Blue
update: As of 4/1/16 the roller is breaking down. It no longer holds its form and after just about a month's use I must openly admit that the roller has flat spots and no longer works as described. Disappointing as I have read other reviews that rave about this product. If I could do it all over again I would avoid this product
