THE BEST WAY TO DEAL WITH SORE MUSCLES
We all deal with sore muscles at one time or another, and some of us deal with them on a regular basis. If you work out at the gym, perform manual labor, sit in front of a computer screen, live with arthritic stiffness, or are pregnant, you know the feeling of muscles that are over-taxed and sore. Professional massages are heavenly, but they are expensive. Unless you have no other obligations, you also probably don’t have the time to schedule regular massages. Fortunately, there is an easy option for dealing with sore muscles without leaving the privacy of your own home.
HAND-HELD MASSAGE BALL ROLLERS
Massage ball rollers are perfect for working knots out of your muscles. They can be used practically anywhere on your body, but they are particularly beneficial when used on your back, between your shoulder blades, on calf and arm muscles, and even on the face.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT MASSAGE BALL ROLLERS
Hand-held massage ball rollers are a genius invention, but you need to know what to look for before making a purchase.
First – and perhaps most obvious – they need to fit in the palm of your hand.
The actual massage ball should move freely in its base.
A small opening in the bottom of the base is not something you will find on every brand of massage ball roller. However, when you buy a style with a hole in the bottom, you will be able to increase the benefit of using the rollers by adding a drop or two of your favorite essential oils.
One of the nicest things about massage ball rollers is that you can either use them on yourself, or someone else can use them on you. No electric cords are involved, and you don’t need to buy batteries. Massage ball rollers provide great deep-tissue relief, but you can also ease surface aches and pains by using a lighter touch. One thing is certain: Once you use massage ball rollers, you won’t worry about paying for expensive, professional massage therapy again.
