“The TravelRollers are simply the best rollers on the planet—a big call, I know, but we have had more experience with these devices than most. We have made the TRs the cornerstone of a new approach to stretching called RollStretch, and one that emphasises fascia, that new ‘darling’ of anatomical research. What most people don’t know is that body workers of many kinds, including Rolfers, Treger workers, and Heller workers have focused on this substance, and have been doing so for 50+ years. I mention this because there are many in the fitness world who are discovering that working with fascia can facilitate amazing changes in the body, and everyone thinks that this is a new discovery. It is not.
What is new is the TR: a hard plastic cylinder, encased in two layers of rubber, the second layer allows an increasing in the hardness of the pressure when the body can accept this, as well as allowing washing of the layers, too, should that be necessary. Inside the cylinder are three balls of differing hardness which allow particular points to be targeted—piriformis is a common favourite.”
