As part of my guest blog series following the International Women’s Day post, I am thrilled to start my conversation series with Lauren Roxburgh, an incredibly knowledgable and inspiring expert on all things fascia, the mind-body connection and movement medicine. Lauren’s effective body foam rolling techniques have made her a leader in the latest trends in health and fitness. She regularly works with A list celebrities and was coined The Body Whisperer by goop! An oracle of information, I encourage you to read on to learn about some of Lauren’s wellness tips and tricks, and why the foam roller is her ‘secret weapon’.
A foam roller is a light, cylinder style foam tube that is used to slowly roll over various parts of the body, essentially giving the body a full, deep massage. Foam rolling can be used to increase flexibility, reduce soreness, break up scar tissue, and speed up the body’s workout recovery process. It also improves circulation, boosts lymphatic drainage and reduces inflammation. I personally use a foam roller daily - it’s a great thing to do before a workout or massaging tired sore muscles in the evening. Head to Lauren’s blog “A First Timer’s Guide To Foam Rolling” to read more.
