The Key Points
With each different muscle, roll slowly back and forth along the muscle, feeling for tightness and trigger points, roll until the trigger points and tightness feel relieved.
Ensure you are rolling along the fiber orientation of the muscle to avoid creating additional knots and to release tension.
Avoid rolling over bony areas and joints.
For stubborn or recurring trigger points roll 2-4 times a day. This may be excessive in same cases and create soreness so every 24 hours might be more beneficial.
