The fascia, or nadis, are the pressure points and energy lines running throughout your body. These lines connect to form a scaffolding system of tissue that holds your muscles, bones, and organs in place and transfers important information and fluids throughout the body. The points where the lines intersect are known as your chakras.
The fascia is one of the first parts of the body to develop in the womb and connects every system of your body in every way, making it a foundational part of your wellness. There are 72,000 of these lines running throughout your body! When the fascia lines get kinked or bound up, you feel tension and your mobility is limited. Over time, as you move in the same ways and hold the same postures again and again, your fascia builds up and stiffens in certain areas in order to support you. You get "issues in your tissues"!
Why is myofascial release important?
Myofascial release is a method of loosening and reshaping the fascia, systemically targeting these lines to release tension and open up the flow of energy throughout the body. By doing so, the body experiences an influx of wellness benefits:
Increased flexibility and strength
Enhanced athletic performance
Accelerated recovery from injury
How do I achieve myofascial release?
Traditionally, foam rollers have been the go-to tool for myofascial release. But they are often stiff, unwieldy, and uncomfortable to use. The Nadi Ball™ was specifically designed to make myofascial release easier and more comfortable. It has a soft, responsive texture that works in conversation with your body, intuitively allowing it to relax and targeting even the hardest-to-reach places. You'll immediately feel the connections in your body and receive a boost to your well-being.
