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.
