Self Massage Techniques

If you read EFI (, you know I am a huge fan of self massage.

It is best to have a massage therapist or body worker do the massage, but if you can’t afford to see one, don’t have time to see one or do not have one living in your house, the second best thing is self massage.

I am going to go over some of what I do in this 2 hour workshop.

Hands-free Self Massage for Injury Prevention and Workout Recovery


Rest and stretching are the recommended methods of preventing injuries or getting our clients’ bodies ready for their next session.  In this practical and hands-on workshop you will learn new, safe techniques and exercises for yourself and your clients when it comes to fending off injury and to help the body get ready for the next session.  You will be shown ways of using common and inexpensive equipment found in a fitness centre to add to your programs.  We will be using tennis balls, medicine balls, foam rollers and a few other gym tools to help in injury prevention and recovery for the neck, hip, shoulder, back, knee and foot.  If you have nagging tight muscles or have a tough time recovering between workouts, you should make sure to attend this workshop.

What You Will Learn:

  • Learn who should, but more importanly, who should not be doing self massage exercises
  • Go through a list of movements and exercises to help foot, calf, knee, hip, back, shoulder and neck for injury prevention and recovery
  • How to use the foam roller, medicine ball, tennis ball, plus a few other fitness tools in new and unique ways.Important Details
