Why The Stick?

30 Nov

There are many, many, many fitness and wellness products out there!  In fact, there a loads of products that promise and offer the same benefits and results as The Stick.  The logical question is “Ok, which one is right for me?”  My opinion is The Stick!

Original Body Stick

Please do not get me wrong.  The other products on the market are valuable and may also do the job!  Here a 10 simple facts about The Stick:

  1. It is so easy to use!
  2. You can use it anywhere.
  3. You can take it anywhere.
  4. You can use it in virtually any position, as long as your muscle is relaxed!
  5. You can get it wet, drop it in the mud or snow and it will still work!
  6. You do not need a mat.
  7. You do not need a plug in.
  8. It is light and very versatile.
  9. It massages your muscles, not crushes them.
  10. The Stick was created and developed with University Scientific Studies!

In addition to the 10 points above, the cost of a Stick is very attractive as well.  The average massage therapist charges around $50.00 for one session.  In my opinion, this is very reasonable and there is nothing on the market that can replace the hands, knuckles and elbows of a human.  Let’s face it, the human touch has been proven time and time again to heal!  The average cost of a Stick is around $40.00.  The difference is, you can use The Stick 3 times a day if you want!!!!

So, I think you can agree that nothing can replace the human touch, but I can attest that The Stick just could be the next best thing!!

Have a great day!!

    I just found this great article:

    Foam rolling and other soft tissue massaging work on the basis that the fascia (the soft, connective tissues) in the body are tight and “knotted” up, creating trigger points. If the fascia in the body are injured or some type of trauma is placed on them, they can get “knotted” up. However since fascia are largely interconnected and interwoven, traumas to one area can lead to issues and problems in other areas. For example trauma to fascia in the ankles can lead to the knees or hips to compensate for ankles. The body is designed for survival and will “shut” joints down to protect it and shunt the work to another joint if it has to. As so many have stated before me, your body doesn’t care about performance, it just cares about keeping itself alive.

    Soft tissue work aims to actively get into these hot spots and work the fascia. Direct pressure is applied to the fascia and it is stretched, kneaded, and mobilized. Here is where people can point out the flaw in soft tissue work. Why would you apply pressure to an already knotted up area? For anyone who has actually tried foam rolling or deep tissue massage, it HURTS. It hurts more than most things in the world. That is only going to cause the body to tighten up the fascia again instead of relax them. So why am I still saying people should still foam roll or get deep tissue massage?

    The whole point of the massage is to learn to relax a tight muscle. Relaxing the muscle helps loosen up the joint it is pulling on. The only way to relax the muscle is not to inflict pain or trauma. Myofascial release should be aimed at teaching you to loosen up the fascia by teaching yourself to relax the tightened fascia. Massaging these fascia should be an active task of relaxing.

    If you use a foam roller or the Stick, start out very, very light. There should be no pain associated with self-massage. You can gradually increase the pressure on the fascia but stop applying pressure before you feel pain. It is amusing to others to see you writhing in pain on the floor but your body doesn’t find it amusing in any way.
