The Roll Model Book

Pain is an Epidemic

It prevents you from performing at your best because it robs you of concentration and power. But pain is preventable,
treatable and within your grasp to heal.

The Roll Model Book by Jill Miller gives you the tools and techniques to change the course of your life in less
than 10 minutes a day.

 


The Roll Model empowers you to take healing into your own hands. You’ll find stories of people who have triumphed
over chronic pain, illness, emotional trauma and prevented surgery by using the transformative Roll Model®
Method and its specialized Therapy Balls.

The Roll Model book takes you on a journey through your body’s habits and habitat to identify pain blind spots, explaining
the science of how and why this method works. Captivating illustrations provide step-by-step instruction
to awaken your body’s resilience to erase pain, relieve stress, and improve performance.


What You'll Find in The Roll Model

Posture, Pain, Performance: Stand Up For Yourself by Getting on the Ball

Your posture follows you like a shadow, and it has a ripple effect into everything you do. Unfortunately,
many choices lead to degenerated vertebrae, bulging disks, herniated abdomens, torn knee cartilage,
or stress fractures in hips, to name a few examples. These very preventable musculoskeletal ailments
are hurting not just us, but also our wallets, our healthcare system, and our economy. Movement is
medicine, and at the correct dose, it will improve your quality of life.

A New Model of Self-Care Healthcare

If you knew that you could prevent a disease from crippling you 20 years from now, wouldn’t you do everything
in your power to avoid the triggers that result in that disease? Whether you’re a top athlete who
wants to improve your performance or a new mama with sore shoulders, the treatment is the same. Your
tissues need comprehensive, integrated strategies to restore optimal performance so that you can
do what you want to do, better and pain-free.

The Sequences that Reset Your Body

The sequences you’ll find in The Roll Model take between ten and twenty minutes to roll through. The
time you spend on the balls each day will begin to add up, and the Roll Model Method will uncover
and erase pains that were previously hiding in plain sight. You’ll also remodel your body into a
supple fortress that pain cannot penetrate.

The Science of The Roll Model: Fascia and Proprioception

Fascia is the ubiquitous living seam system in your body that threads your tissues to one another. It
is just one of many types of connective tissue in your body, but it is the tissue that plays the
biggest role in the Roll Model approach. Wherever the Therapy Balls roll, they impact your body’s
fasciae.

Soul Rolling: When you “Knead” More than a Physical Fix

During my classes and courses, I walk amongst my students as they roll, and I see their hidden worlds
emerge as moans, sighs, cries, and laughter. Their “hard bodies” soften to the sensation of self-care.
In group classes, I give them permission to feel whatever their bodies “knead” to feel, whether that
means loosening a restricted chest muscle or processing an emotional wound.

Meet A Few Roll Model Success Stories



Greg Reid, 55, a champion ex-bodybuilder who survived several debilitating car accidents that left him
in chronic pain, was able to recover his body without the help of pain medication. He has rehabilitated
every inch of his body and re-sculpted a more functional physique from inside out – and he is pain-free.



Jennifer Lovely, 39, a survivor of physical and sexual abuse was diagnosed with Lupus at age 23. She
was on multiple pain medications (and alcohol) to help reduce inflammation and relieve pain. She
found her own way to health, through use of the Roll Model Method, to defy statistics and completely
wean herself off medication.



Carlton Bennett, 45, a U.S. Armed Services Veteran, suffered pain from multiple back surgeries (including
removal of part of a vertebrae) and was often left immobilized from the searing pain. He now says
“knowing what I know now, I could have avoided each of those surgeries and taken care of my issues
with a Therapy Ball.”



Rebecca Moss was only 18 when she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. The best years of her life were
stripped away with unmanageable weight loss, fecal and urinary incontinence and crushing pain. After
multiple pelvic surgeries, her pelvic floor was completely dysfunctional and not responding to Physical
Therapy. She discovered the Roll Model Balls and within 6 weeks her incontinence vanished.
