Why use a massage ball?
“Knots” or “trigger points” can be massive sources of pain in our bodies, and using self-massage techniques can be very satisfying.
Adding a trigger point massage ball into your fitness routine can bring many benefits, like tackling plantar fasciitis or increasing flexibility and blood circulation.
Massage balls are affordable and small enough to fit into a suitcase or handbag wherever you go. You can keep it at your desk as a reminder to take a break and release built-up muscle tension from poor posture or stress.
You can use it before a workout to help activate your muscles or after to help the recovery of the stiff muscles.
You can use them almost anywhere, for example, against a wall, on the back of a chair, or on the floor.
It will take you only a few minutes out of the day to get some relief and relax.
How to Use Massage Ball
Using a massage ball is very easy; you need to roll the ball across the muscles in which you feel the tension.
Doing this increases blood flow to that area, improves circulation, and helps remove any pain and stiffness.
The major benefit comes from applying the tool over the trigger points. When a specific area of the muscle feels like there’s a ‘knot’ and pressure is applied, you feel pain in a different part of your body.
Muscle knots can happen to anyone because they’re caused by injury, using your muscles too much or too little, and poor posture.
The point of trigger point therapy is releasing or softening a muscle knot to reduce the knot pain and associated pain.
This release happens by applying various levels of pressure to muscle knots and then stretching the affected areas through a complete range of motion.
You know you found a knot when you experience a sort of “good pain.”
Once you have located the trigger point, stop moving the ball and hold it on that point for a few seconds before continuing with massaging the muscle.
If you’re only looking for a light massage, you can also roll the ball over the area with your hand. Massage balls are very versatile and can be adapted to fit your needs quickly.
Cork: a wonder material
Samarali massage balls are made from recycled cork. They are light and easy to carry with you anywhere, at your office or during your vacation.
The cork surface is pleasant to touch and provides enough grip and stability. Moreover, it is sweat-absorbent, anti-bacterial, and super light.
The cork material is one of the most eco-friendly on the market nowadays.
The cork of our massage balls is from Portugal. Cork is an entirely renewable material that comes from the bark of a Cork Oak tree; it is harvested by peeling the bark off the trees so they never have to be cut down.
After the cork is removed, the tree rejuvenates its bark that regrows every 8 -14 years over its 200-year lifespan – a completely sustainable process.
Cork bark rejuvenation absorbs CO2 from the air, leaving zero toxic or chemical remains, and is bio-degradable, which means it can be composted, keeping your product out of landfills.
