My subject is how a person can prevent and cure the majority of pain, injury, and signs of the aging process one would experience throughout one’s life. This involves a simple program utilizing inexpensive massage tools and stretching I have detailed in my book "Roll It Out!: A Pain-Free Living & Anti-Aging Reference Guide."

My presentation consists of explaining how the connective tissue responsible for pain, injury and “aging”, called fascia, becomes dysfunctional through overuse or trauma. I lay out a very simple, but detailed, program for identifying and treating dysfunctional muscles and fascia. I also recommend an inexpensive three-piece massage toolkit, which restores fascia back to it’s intended healthy state. I bring examples of each piece of the toolkit as a visual reference.

Andreas Andersson is an Associate Professor of Oceanography in Scripps' Geoscience Research Division. His research deals with global environmental change owing to both natural and anthropogenic processes, and the subsequent effects on the function, role, and cycling of carbon in marine environments. In particular, he studies the effect of ocean acidification in coral reefs and in near-shore coastal environments. Andersson was born and grew up in Sweden, but moved to Hawaii to attend college when he was old enough to make his own decisions. He holds a B.S. in marine biology from Hawaii Pacific University (he was valedictorian of the class of 2001), and a M.S. and a Ph.D. in chemical oceanography from the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Following completion of his Ph.D. in 2006, he accepted an appointment as post-doctoral fellow at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) and later as Assistant Research Scientist in 2008. After more than 13 years of subtropical island life in Hawaii and Bermuda, Andersson moved to San Diego and Scripps Institution of Oceanography in the summer of 2011. He has authored or co-authored more than 50 scientific articles and one book on the topic of ocean acidification, and has also advised several NGOs and policy makers on this environmental issue.
