    This lecture, Foam Roller Methods for Optimal Posture and Movement Organization will introduce new ideas on sensory motor learning and fascial rehabilitation to novice and sophisticated foam roller users. Foam rollers were first introduced through the Feldenkrais Method, a form of sensory motor learning that draws from a synthesis of neuroscience, bio-physics, child development and martial arts. Physical Therapist Stacy Barrows also combines influences from sports medicine, physical therapy and pilates to stimulate and create new ways to use this very versatile exercise tool.

    "We can create so many different types of programs, and we can establish clients or patients to be more independent for self-use or to be creative to keep their attention in a clinic, a gym or a fitness space. Depending on your needs, foam rollers have a tremendous value that way." ~Stacy Barrows

    LECTURER BIO

    Stacy Barrows is a physical therapist, a Pilates instructor and Feldenkrais Practitioner. She co-owns a physical therapy practice and was one of the first to teach use of the foam roller. She invented the Smartroller, along with its companion products, Smartroller Links and Smartroller SITS. Stacy is the author of The Smartroller Guide to Optimal Movement, and teaches internationally to health and fitness professionals. Clients can reach her practice at Century City PT, and you can catch up with her on her blog at feldypt.blogspot.com.


    "Stacy Barrows' lecture is a complete introduction to the use of foam rollers for rehabilitation and performance. She does a great job covering different aspects of how to use foam rollers, including as an evaluative tool, treatments using the foam roller, myofascial work, strengthening, and how to use it to increase awareness. Most foam roller lectures or manuals only discuss how to use the foam roller as a treatment tool, and do not include the aspects covered so well in this lecture. There's also a PowerPoint presentation included that explains some of the principles and exercises she discusses in the lecture, a great addition if you don't have time to listen to go through the lecture notes. The PowerPoint also includes links to youtube videos of how to use foam rollers and an extensive list of references. This is a great resource for anyone who uses foam rollers for rehabilitation or performance enhancement."
    ~ Staffan Elgelid PT, PhD, GCFP

    Reviewer: Todd Hargrove

    Stacy Barrows brings her considerable experience as a physical therapist, Feldenkrais practitioner, and Pilates instructor to bear on a seemingly small subject: foam rollers. In the process, she discusses and interrelates a whole world of interesting ideas related to building a more functional and healthy body. This talk isn't just about rolling on your IT band until you find a sore spot. Stacy’s talk covers a wide variety of topics, including: safety, balance, posture, client assessment, soft tissue work, core strength, how to watch clients for subtle cues of autonomic distress, visual versus kinesthetic learning styles, how vision affects coordination, and my favorite topic - how a roller can be used to build the self awareness and cortical maps that are required for coordinated movement. Excellent talk Stacy, thanks for sharing.
