Why Do We Need Healthy Knees?

About three months ago I started working with a young female runner, Kimberly in her twenties.  She had severe knee pain and was going to give up running because of it. She reached out to me regarding my services through a mutual contact. We met a few times in person for sessions however because of time issues we had several sessions via skype. After about six sessions her knees pain was gone. She couldn’t believe it. We worked on freeing up tension in her hips which directly connects to knees. Using the Yamuna Black balls we just focused on leg routines because my main focus was to have her understand how to roll on her own and relieve some of the knee pain.

Some quick facts about the Knee. The Knee is a hinge joint and is integral for our mobility. The bones that compose the knee are the femur, tibia, and patella (knee cap). The fibula, which is part of the knee, resides next to the tibia. The knee is supported by a complex system of ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and muscles.


Quality of life can take a turn for the worse when this joint is injured. In order to maintain healthy knees and prevent injuries, it is extremely important to preserve good leg alignment. Yamuna® Body Rolling is a fitness technique that sets itself apart from most exercise programs by stressing the importance of bone alignment and stimulation as part of the rolling routines. 

Kimberly, my client was so happy with the outcome of Body Rolling:

“I am a serious runner. For the first time in 3 years I was able to run Tough Mudder without sever knee pain!..I can't say enough about how wonderful Emily and her sessions have been! In just 2 months she helped my body correct its issues naturally. And for that, I thank you!

Here is simple routine for your Knees:

  1. Place two black balls, one behind the knee and in front of the knee and bring the balls down the leg. You are sandwiching the balls together on both sides of the leg. This is a great to do after biking, running or playing any kind of sport.
