After opening successfully in New York City, Body Roll Studio decided to come to Miami Beach. Body Roll Studio is like a foam roller and sauna in one, combining the healing effects of slimming and lymphatic massage.
A lymphatic massage helps to relieve muscle tension and lose inches from the body, eliminating unnecessary toxins and reducing cellulite. At Body Roll Studio, the rollers do all the work, rotating at a certain number of revolutions per minute, while the infrared lamps help improve the elasticity of the skin.

Owner Piret Aava discovered these rollers in her home country of Estonia. After a session, Aava noticed she was sore the next day even though she works out a lot. She acknowledges that she was always lazy with the foam roller and that this helped with her mobility and also to ease muscle tension.
When you arrive, you will get your own room, with its own wooden roller and TV screen to guide you through the session. You stay fully clothed during the roll and, right now, you also need to wear a mask for the duration of your session. One session at Body Roll Studio is 45 minutes, during which the machines are set up with 15 special 3-minute positions focusing on different areas and muscle groups according to the principles of lymphatic massage. While the typical session is 45 minutes long, there are also shorter sessions for people with less time.
While the video walks you through all of the different body parts for a full-body massage, you can also do what you want and focus more on certain areas. The session is even more customizable with the ability to change roller speeds. You can roll faster to get deeper into the muscles or slower for a more superficial massage. The infrared lights can also be adjusted.
Truly everyone can benefit from a session at Body Roll Studio. It gets your blood moving similar to a workout and you will leave detoxed, relaxed, and happy.
It is recommended to eat before rolling, as it is a powerful machine and not eating can cause you to get lightheaded during the session. It is also very important for participants to drink enough water during the procedure as muscles work at their maximum just when the body is sufficiently hydrated. Liquid intake before and after the massage is also very important as it helps the body to eliminate toxins more easily.
Your first roll is $40. Beyond that, there are class packages available at different rates, as well as an unlimited monthly membership for $399.
