A Toothbrush for Muscles!


I’m sure the title of the post caught your attention and it should have. “A toothbrush for muscles” is the slogan for THE STICK which is a great massage tool for muscles!!


The stick became my best friend 3 1/2 years ago after I had my hip surgery. I needed it to roll out my IT Band, my quadriceps muscles, and my hip adductors. I received The Stick as a gift from Marc because he knew that during my time at physical therapy it helped me tremendously with my recovery. I gained more flexibility and strength using the stick and it eased SO much of my tightness. Luckily Marc was there to help me out on most days during my surgery recovery when my movement was limited, but you can do it on your own!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that works out on a regular basis.


This morning I spent close to 30 minutes rolling out my hip area including the quads, IT Band, Adductor (inner thigh area) etc. It was torturous while I did it, and you can feel all the knots in the muscles as you roll out your leg… but TRUST me you will feel 100 times better after.

I focused on my upper legs and rolled out the entire area. I even broke a sweat with all the rolling! I found that if one specific area is tight it helps to roll out all around that spot. My legs are feeling better and although I am a tiny bit sore from the roller, I don’t have the tightness in my hip/groin area that I had before!
