Rearrange the wheels for a perfectly targeted massage for improvements in performance, flexibility, recovery, and injury prevention. Hypoallergenic, nontoxic and phthalate free this lightweight and portable device easily dissembles for cleaning. Eliminate Trigger Points Trigger points are inflexible bands of muscle containing knots that restrict blood flow impacting muscle performance and healing from heavy exercise or injury. By relieving these trigger points the Flex Massage Stick improves performance and speeds recovery. Optimal for Self-Myofascial Release & Physical Therapy Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic web of collagen fibre that wraps, supports and protects most structures within the human body. Over time injury, inactivity, poor diet and stress create restrictions within this tissue. The Flex Massage Stick is ideal for identifying and rehabilitating these restrictions for improved resilience and mobility. Pre-Workout Warm-Up - Ideal for Marathoners! Warm muscles perform better than cool ones meaning athletes have to do light exercise to warm muscles and activate enzyme activity at the expense of energy reserves. The Flex Massage Stick allows athletes to warm-up muscles without depleting valuable energy stores. Effective Post Workout Repair Following exercise, muscle tightness leads to knots and blood flow restrictions inhibiting muscle growth, tissue repair and glycogen repletion. Post workout, the Flex Massage Stick helps accelerate recovery and boosts results by relaxing tight muscles to enhance muscle growth, repairing tissue and increasing glycogen repletion. Users will benefit from reduced soreness and improved range of motion. Care & Cleaning When necessary, clean the Flex Massage Stick with a combination of tea tree oil and water. A mixture of mild soap and water can be used to remove more persistent dirt. The product can be easily disassembled for a thorough cleaning of all components - simply pull the handles to remove and slide off the massage wheels for cleaning. Allow time to dry and then reassemble.
