Taking the Ranch Home with Release and Mobilize

Who knew that two tennis balls could cause so much pain and pleasure at the same time.  Welcome to Release and Mobilize.  You know all those aches and pains in your joints and muscles that seem to accumulate over time?  This is the class that teaches you how to get rid of them!  The best part about it?  You don’t need anything fancy…just two tennis balls.  How cool is that?

So what exactly happens in this class, I’m sure you’re wondering.  Basically, you are using the two tennis balls to release tension in your muscles.  In essence, giving yourself a massage.  We started out using one of the balls underneath our right foot, rolling our foot over it.  Starting at the toes for a good couple of minutes, then moving down to the ball of the foot and finally the heel.  While it felt good, the really remarkable realization was when we walked around afterwards.  I really noticed a difference in my right foot compared to my left.  My left foot suddenly felt very tense while my right was completely comfortable to walk on.  Who knew, right?

We went on to massage other tense muscles including backs, shoulders, and the most sore in my case, my back thighs.  Killer!  I have to say that if you’re looking to take the Ranch home, this is the perfect class to teach you how to do that.  These massages are something you can easily do at home on a nightly basis or I’m sure even a couple times a week will help tremendously.
