Foam rollers of this kind are inexpensive but are effective in releasing most tensions in the body.

Textured or Bumpy Rollers

Textured foam rollers are mostly made of EVA foam and have grooves and ridges on them. They are quite good at targeting trigger points and knots in the body. That’s why they are otherwise known as trigger point foam rollers.

The bumpy rollers can provide your customers a consistent pressure to hard-to-reach areas of their bodies.

Rumble Foam Rollers

Rumble rollers have quite the intensity because of their firm and bumpy knobs that dig into the skin. They can mimic the hands of a masseuse when used properly.

These foam rollers can get into your deepest muscle pains and knots and release the tensions. Rumble rollers come in extra-firm and medium density hardness depending on your customer’s endurance.

Do foam rollers have different densities?

Medium Density Foam Rollers

For your customers that have outgrown the low-density foams but don’t want to put too much pressure on their body, you can recommend the medium-density ones.
