5 Must-Have Self-Massage Tools to Relieve Body Tension, Stiffness and Aches
Experiencing frequent and persistent stiffness, aches, or pain in your body?
They could potentially be caused by:
• A sedentary lifestyle
• Long hours working
• High-intensity training
• Unbalanced training resulting in muscular imbalances
• Body's response to being stressed
Perhaps you’re experiencing one or more (or all) of the above causes, and the city-wide closure of massage parlours as a result of the circuit breaker probably isn’t helping the fact that you’re dreaming of getting a massage to relieve all the tensions and aches in your body. Well, dream no longer because here are some of BodyTree’s top picks for self-massage tools (the exact same portable and reliable ones that the BodyTree Group uses in their own studios) for some at-home tension relief - all available for purchase at the BodyTree Group’s .
1. PBT Therapy Ball
The therapy ball is a great, handy self-massage tool especially to get a good massage for smaller body parts such as the feet.
PBT Tip: for achy and tight feet, start with the ball at the heel end of the foot and add as much of your body weight onto that point on the ball. Work your way forward through the mid part of the foot, to the front before returning to your starting point and rolling firmly and slowly forward and backward.
2. PBT Peanut
Sore shoulders? Use the PBT Peanut work is great for release work from the top of your shoulders down the back.
When it comes to time-saving, adding vibration to your massage tool is the way to go. As leaders in whole-body vibration for over 20 years, Power Plate® has developed the following Targeted Vibration Products.
3. Power Plate® DualSphere™
Perfect for effective and concentrated self-massage. Featuring a unique contoured shape and exclusive textured design, the DualSphere is ideal for targeting hard to reach areas including feet, neck and back to help relax and rejuvenate tight and sore muscles, release fascia and promote blood flow to help you prepare faster and recover quicker.
4. Power Plate® Roller™
The Power Plate® Roller™, unlike a bulky foam roller, is a great portable vibrating massager. With 4 different vibrating speeds, you can get deeper into the muscles as compared to a traditional foam roller.
5. Power Plate® Pulse™
