"Foam Roll Release classes are a great way to learn how to perform self-myofascial release of trigger points in the muscles. Trigger points are sore spots that form within muscles or tendons. Foam rolling is a way of massaging away muscle soreness in trigger points, and preparing your muscles for deeper stretching. Using the foam roller to loosen the tension in your muscles provides an excellent way of obtaining the benefits of self-myofascial release. Foam rolling classes teach a form of myofascial release that you can also do on your own, using the roller to release muscular tension without needing the help of a massage therapist. Releasing tension from your trigger points also enables your muscles to stretch more easily."
