The world's leader in fascial health, Robert Schleip, Ph.D., explores the many angles of the Rollga Roller and discovers an exciting effect.

Rollga is the Groovy Roller

The Rollga Roller is an invitation to explore.

It doesn't take very long to see that the Rollga Roller is not a foam roller. Each contour is engineered to deliver a very deliberate angle of pressure to the body. A cross-directional pressure is uniquely applied when rolling in the grooves. The unique delivery of pressure, has quickly sparked interest in the fascial health industry, and many world leaders and experts are taking notice.

"Dr. Schleip said it best when he referred to the contours of the Rollga Roller as an 'invitation to explore'," expressed Taggart Downare, creator of the Rollga Roller, "Our fascia is consumed with free radicals and waste, the Rollga creates a sponge effect that replaces the waste with fresh hydration." Staying hydrated requires people to drink 30 to 50 ounces a day, an amount equal to about four to six glasses of water, reports an article published in the Harvard Health Letter. Meanwhile, movement excites the body and encourages faster absorption. Rolling is organic way to increase natural movement to keep the fascia healthy.

Downare traveled to Ulm, Germany to attend the Connect 17 Fascial Conference back in February of 2017. "The response from leaders was humbling to say the least," said Downare with a smile, "the people I have met over this roller amazes me." Many fascial leaders took notice and have since continued to promote the effectiveness of the unique and groovy design. "It's a simple change in the design," says Tim Schmidt, co-owner of Rollga, "but that is why it is drawing so much attention."

More about Rollga:
Rollga is a cross-directional roller designed to stabilize the hips, align the back, and increase range-of-motion. The Rollga roller is ideal for muscle recovery, fascial health, and functional restoration of movement. Ordinary foam rollers are flat and offer only one angle of pressure. This groovy foam roller is designed and contoured to fit your body and reach trigger points that are difficult to reach with an array of controlled pressure.
