Hi, this is Luke from Leaf Wellness Center in Santa Monica, California, and I'm going to talk to you about self-massage techniques. Massages can get expensive. That's why it's important that you implement some massage techniques that are cheap, effective and won't kill your wallet. The first massage technique is a foam roller. You can use a foam roller to foam on your calves, your IT band and any other big and large muscle areas that doesn't require the assistance of something more focused like the golf ball is for things like the bottom of your feet, helps with people that have plantar fasciitis and those kinds of things. Next, we have a tennis ball. A tennis ball is great for your erectus, the erectus spinae on your back and your thoracic spine and even some scapular muscles on your back. And lastly, we have a baseball, which is a great progression to work on your glutes, and even your lats. I'm Luke from Leaf Wellness Center, and those are self-massage techniques.
