If you get a chance to go for a relaxing body massage after a day long hectic schedule then I am sure you will not reject it.

Let's understand foam roller benefits detail in the following given paragraphs.

Self Massage Therapy
You may get tired after gym or physical activity or after a long day of work or just by sitting in front of your computer for a long period. Relax your body with the use of a foam roller. Just lay down on your back over the foam roller and keep rolling for about 15 to 20 minutes. Just doing this will give you the benefits of a good massage therapy. Your body weight will put the pressure on the body and your muscles, tendons and tissue will get stretched and relaxed. This will improve the blood flow and will strengthen your muscles.

Performing Exercises
Foam roller may help you to perform stretching exercises even in the areas which are practically impossible to stretch. For instance your outer thigh. You can just lie to your side over the foam roller just few inches under your hips and start rolling. This will stretch your thighs and will help in improving the blood flow. Similarly it can be used for many other exercises.

Injury Rehabilitation
You can also relieve any tension and pain in muscles and tendons with a foam roller.
