Do you experience a lot of tension in your calves — even though you’ve been stretching dutifully? Sometimes, manual therapy is what’s needed to make that lasting change. And while nothing beats a specialist’s well-informed bodywork, it’s great to have some simple self-massage techniques on-hand.

In this week’s Quick Tip, Scott recommends a few of these methods to help you work on your calves at home.

Start gently, explore what feels right, and let us know if you notice a difference over time!
