Self Massage Techniques

Self Massage Techniques

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

It is best to have a massage therapist or bodyworker 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 will 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 fending off injury and to help the body get ready for the next session.  You will be shown ways of using standard and inexpensive equipment found in a fitness center to add to your programs.  We will be using tennis balls, medicine balls, foam rollers, and a few other gym tools to help 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 attend this workshop.

What You Will Learn:

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