Integrate the power of soft-tool science for yourself and your clients using the Roll Model® Method Therapy Balls. Explore pain-erasing, mobility-enhancing self-myofascial release techniques throughout the body. Systematically tour best practices for each part of the body and differentiate applications for a variety of clientele.

  • Learn the art and science of crafting test/retest scenarios to provide instant feedback of improved function or reduced pain
  • Improve classroom demonstration of Therapy Ball techniques with innovative sequences for all levels of student ability
  • Hands-off massage: provide touch-averse clients with an empowered method using low-cost, accessible tools to approach their self-care.
  • Integrate science with best practices: translate new fascia evidence into exploratory application for therapy and performance using the Roll Model Therapy Balls.
  • Discover body blind spots: identify and relieve areas of neglect to resolve chronic pain or movement restrictions.
