Get rid of muscle pain quickly with the Andrew James Foam Roller. Foam roller massage helps you to perform a wide range of core-strength exercises for the best results, such as yoga and pilates, while banishing any muscle pain quickly as a helpful recovery tool. By using the Andrew James Foam Roller you can even release tension after a day slouched over your desk in the office.
Recommended by fitness professionals, using a foam roller exerciser is an effective way of speeding up muscle recovery after exercise, allowing you to train harder and achieve better results than ever before.
Made of eco-friendly EVA foam and lightweight, this means that carrying this foam roller to the gym doesn’t become a workout in itself. However, it is also sturdy enough as a proper massage tool to relieve aches and pains.
What Can I Use My Foam Roller for?
This foam roller for back and muscles is specially designed for deep tissue muscle massage. The heavily textured pressure points perform a similar function to that of a real sports massage and physiotherapy, and can relieve stiffness and pain. The smaller raised pressure points replicate a fingertip-like pressure, while the larger squares perform the function of a palm.
Use your Andrew James Foam Roller for the following:
Self Massage: Also known as self-myofascial release, you can use this roller as a sports massager to relieve tight muscles and knots. Slowly rolling your limbs and upper back over the roller can help increase circulation and encourage muscles to relax and release tension.
Self Acupressure: If you have a particular tight spot in your muscles, use this roller to apply pressure for up to a minute to help reduce discomfort or pain.
Core Training: Push your training programme to the next level by resting on the roller as you perform push ups, planks, and abdominal crunches to increase core stability.
Yoga Roller: Putting the roller under your knees can help relieve pressure on your back in certain poses. It also doubles as a great prop for aiding balance.
Extend Stretches: Use the roller to gently extend your stretches during warm-up and cool-down and also maintain flexibility.
Balance Exercises: Just like a wobble board or cushion, you can use this roller to help improve stability and balance as you exercise.
Foot Massage: You can also use this roller to treat yourself to a soothing foot massage after a long run, or just a particularly gruelling day at the office.

Trigger point rollers are lightweight cylinders covered in EVA foam in a grid pattern that can be used to apply pressure to your muscles. They are a firm favourite of athletes, runners, and cyclists who regularly use them in warm-up and cool-down exercises, but can be used by everyone to aid circulation and muscle health.
Tips on How to Use for Massage (also known as SMR or Self Myofascial Release):
You can use the roller on the floor either lying or sitting, or in a standing position with the roller against a wall, to stretch and massage areas such as your legs, abs and back. Simply move your body back and forth across the roller; your own weight provides pressure and allows you to massage aching muscles and release tension. The raised blocks, or ‘trigger points’, perform a similar function to that of a real sports massage - the smaller raised blocks provide fingertip-like pressure, while the large squares perform the function of a palm.
