Roll & Release
Learn how to TUNE UP YOUR BODY with fitness professional, Brenda Cloud, using the Roll Model® Method. The Roll Model® Method is a simple self-treatment method that teaches you to use a variety of grippy, pliable rubber therapy balls to reduce your aches and pains and reform your body from the inside out. The therapy balls induce the relaxation response and take your body into the rest/digest/recover mode of the parasympathetic nervous system. The rest/digest/recover mode is where the “magic happens.” Using therapy balls is a wonderful, powerful way to improve your mobility, prevent injury, and practice holistic self-care fitness.
