By Sarah Wainwright”When I’m feeling too sweaty to roll, I just get a little foam roller in my hand and just try to keep rolling.”
It’s one of the few techniques in the world that can relieve the discomfort of those hot, sweaty days, and it’s one that we’re increasingly turning to to get a boost of freshness.
But does it work?
According to some research, yes.
Foam rolling is often used to help prevent heat stroke and stroke, or to ease congestion, and even to improve the immune system.
It’s been linked to lower blood pressure and a lower risk of heart attack and stroke.
Foams are also thought to help relieve post-exercise pain, as it reduces muscle soreness.
Foam rolling isn’t just for sweaty, sweaty people.
Research has also shown that it can help with asthma and chronic bronchitis too.
And some studies suggest that it’s particularly effective in people with anxiety, depression and eating disorders, as well as people with low immune systems.
What you need to know about foam rollingWhat is foam rolling?
Foams are a special kind of foam that are created by mixing foam sheets together, with a small amount of water added to each.
The foam then moves across the surface of your skin to create a cushioning effect.
You might roll your hands, elbows or knees to help you breathe better, or roll your feet, neck or legs to improve circulation.
Some foam rolling is also performed in yoga studios, but if you’re not one of those, foam rolling has also been used for decades in physical therapy.
What does foam rolling actually do?
Foo rolling has been used in massage therapy for decades.
There are many types of foam rolling exercises, but foam rolling involves moving the foam through your body, which involves moving your skin in different directions.
Foo rolls also help to reduce stress, as they help to relax muscles and ease tension in your joints.
You can also roll your legs to stretch and relax your muscles, and then use the foam to build up your muscles to increase strength.
Foley’s foam rolling technique has been popular in Australia, and the company is now offering it for use at their massage centre.
But it can be challenging to find the right foam roll for you.

You can also add a foam roller to your massage to help massage your body.
Foamy rolls have also been shown to help treat depression, anxiety and depression-related symptoms, and can help reduce anxiety and stress.
