The Rollga foam roller is ideal for muscle recovery, fascial health, and functional restoration of movement. Ordinary foam rollers cause discomfort and pain due to the unfitting design. This groovy foam roller is designed and contoured to fit your body and reach trigger points that are difficult to reach with an ordinary roller.
Our entire body is consumed with connective tissue called, Fascia. Just like anything in our body, connective tissue degenerates and breaks down over time. The degeneration of fascia can be accelerated with repetitive overuse, stress or injury. Rollga is a high-quality foam roller that brings regeneration to damaged tissue, by influencing circulation of oxygen-rich blood flow. Rollga will prevent fascia from becoming unhealthy. By restoring your fascia, you will restore your mobility.
