Jill has put forth one of the great works of public health in our time. (- Dr. Kelly Starrett co-founder of Mobilitywod, New York Times bestselling Author of Becoming a Supple Leopard)
Short of taking Jill Miller home with you,there is no better source for step-by-step self-care health-care than The Roll Model. Metamorphosis is not only for butterflies- you too can change your body into a different animal. The Roll Model is a book as robust as your health will be after reading it. (- Katy Bowman, M.S. author of Move Your DNA: Restore Your Health Through Natural Movement)
Mobility is the key to unlocking next level strength and performance in your body. Jill Miller is not only the master of this, she teaches it in a way that simplifies the science and gives clear instructions that anyone at any fitness level can use immediately. My body has never been happier. And my foam roller has never been more jealous. (- Adam Rosante, Celebrity Fitness & Wellness Coach, author, The 30-Second Body.)
Where movement meets method is where the rubber hits the road in any therapeutic practice and it is there that great change can take place. The Roll Model presents a concrete roadmap for pain management, body ease, and movement efficiency. Jill’s energy, endless curiosity and extensive work in the areas of anatomy and yoga therapy all “rolled” into one, make her voice unique. ‘Live better in your body’ is a promise you can bank on when working with Jill’s self-care methodology and The Roll Model may be just be the breakthrough your body has been secretly been begging for and the path toward true physical freedom. (- Brooke Siler, author of NY Times Bestseller The Pilates Body, Your Ultimate Pilates Body Challenge, The Women’s Health Big Book of Pilates)
I really love the 'live better in your body' part of the promise of this book—it should be a priority for everyone. And I think Jill Miller's approach to self-massage is excellent. One of my personal goals is always expansion—becoming more open and more flexible, both physically as well as mentally. I often think that where the body goes, the mind follows. And a flexible body—one that can really move—can go farther and longer. (- Gabrielle Reece, former pro beach volleyball player and certified trainer)
This carefully written and beautifully illustrated book lays out a comprehensive new system of 'self-care healthcare' that’s grounded in science, honed by experience, and proven by an exceptional track record of success. The Roll Model offers an invaluable resource for anyone who is ready to expand their self-care repertoire, or works to support others in sustaining optimal health. (-Carol Horton, PhD, author of Yoga PhD; co-editor of 21st Century Yoga)

In TRM, Jill methodically teaches you the how, what, why and where of rolling out your muscles and fascia. Jill's commitment to self-care for everybody is reflected in this gift of a book.
I recommend this book for anyone who wants to relieve pain and stress, improve their posture and postural habits, and perform better in all aspects of their life. The Yoga Tune Up balls are not your average balls (like tennis balls, squash)--they perform magic. Sometimes, all I want to do is stay home and roll. Feeling better is addictive...they do say...if it feels good do it...then do it some more. Thank you, Jill, for being...and writing The Roll Model.
This book's illustrations helped me to gain a much better understanding of what muscles, tendons, etc were potentially causing pain and how to help ease the discomfort.
I love this book. Thank you Jill for this amazing contribution to wellness.
Move Your DNA by Katy Bowman
The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Claire Davies
Breatheology by Stig Avall Severinsen
Jill Miller's book, The Roll Model, accomplishes to combine the above three and to serve as a practical guide and reference. The concept of yoga by itself being insufficient and requiring to be supplementation by nutrition, awareness of posture and a regular regimen of soft tissue manipulation is refreshing and timely. The arguments for using specialized balls instead of tennis balls, lacrosse balls, etc. are compelling. Personally, I like (and will continue) to use a hard PVC roller (homemade) for my legs, but for the upper body specialized equipment works better. Jill has made a very meaningful contribution to the health literature and will help many people improve the quality of their lives.
But beyond Miller's expertise, which is vast, this book exudes heart. It inspires and motivates with personal stories of transformation by many who have used these healing techniques. These stories are a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body and spirit, and to the unwavering devotion of a pioneer to her craft. Jill Miller has created a seminal work in self-healing. She is a beacon for anyone seeking to live pain-free and perform at peak.
