Ever hit a wall with your fitness routine, feeling the burnout from all those high-intensity sessions? If you’ve been on this journey with me, you know I’m all about that adrenaline rush from a killer workout. But let me spill the tea on my secret weapon that keeps me bouncing back: body rolling!
🎥 Curious? Before we roll into the deets, check out this chat I had with the queen of body rolling, Yamuna Zake, back in 2015. Spoiler: she sprinkles some invaluable gems of wisdom you won’t want to miss!
With over four decades of experience in treating injuries and pioneering self-help components for body healing, Yamuna has transformed manual treatments into a self-healing method. Her method empowers us to understand our bodies better and take charge of our own healing.
The Genesis of Body Rolling
Yamuna's journey began with a 99-cent Disney-themed ball. She soon realized the potential of this tool. It had to be versatile, adaptable, and cater to different pain thresholds. This realization led to the development of a range of products, each tailored for specific needs.
A Holistic Approach to Healing
Every part of our body, from bones to muscles, is interconnected. Addressing one area can create ripples of impact throughout our system. Yamuna's method isn't just about treating symptoms; it's about understanding this intricate network. It's a proactive approach, focusing on both recovery and prevention, benefiting everyone from kids to seniors.
Addressing the Bones: A Neglected Aspect of Fitness
A unique aspect of her method is the focus on bone stimulation. While the fitness industry has recently been abuzz with discussions about fascia, the importance of bone health, particularly in high-impact exercises, cannot be overstated. Bone, being the densest tissue, absorbs impact during high-intensity training. Over time, this can lead to inflammation, joint restriction, and damage to the tendons and ligaments attached to the bone.
The Bones of the Face: An Overlooked Area of Focus
Zake's method expanded to include facial rolling around the time of the conversation (2015). She mentioned that women, in particular, experience more bone loss in their faces, exacerbated by stress and tension from clenching and grinding the jaw. By incorporating facial rolling, individuals can not only enhance their physical appearance but also alleviate tension and prevent future issues related to the jaw and facial bones. But the implications of jaw tension go far beyond facial pain or discomfort.
In our conversation, Yamuna revealed a surprising connection between our jaw and our hips! The tension in our jaw can influence our posture, alignment, and even hip health. This interconnectedness underscores the importance of holistic wellness.
