NYC's newly opened Body Roll Studio combines the effectiveness of a lymphatic massage with rollers that are commonly used after a workout to relieve muscle tension. The lymphatic massage studio sets itself apart with machines that do the work of rolling out muscles, leaving people to correctly position themselves against the continually rotating drum rather than do the rolling—in this way, Body Roll Studio describes that the experience feels "like relaxation and [a] workout together."
Body Roll Studio's machines can be used to target various areas of the body, including the thighs, hips, abdomen and back.
While there are constantly new studios being opened for fitness and active pursuits, there are also a number of recovery-focused start-ups emerging to help people perform at their best.
