Every Body Deserves A Massage! Click To Tweet


A massage is the best way to unwind after a long tiring and stressful day. It takes away muscle soreness, reduces stress, helps with pain relief, and is good for general wellbeing. However, going to a spa or having a masseuse at your disposal isn’t always possible. Massage Tools are a great alternative to that. There are different massage techniques that have been incorporated into these massage tools like Shiatsu, kneading, pressing, and rubbing effects. Some tools also come with the option of heat massage.

What are massage tools?

Massage tools as the name suggests are tools/ devices that massage targeted areas of the body. They relieve pain, stiffness, and muscle tension. There are generic as well as specific massage tools for feet, legs, back, neck, hands, shoulders, and scalp.

How to select the best massage tool?

There are certain factors to keep in mind while selecting a massage tool. Firstly and most importantly, the budget. If you have a huge budget then the best option is a fully automated massage chair. A massage chair massages the complete body and is the closest thing to getting a massage done by a masseuse. However, along with being costly, it is heavy and bulky as well. You will need space as well as an electric connection to place it. Massage chairs come with options for different kinds of massages and intensities.

Another factor to consider is the fact that most of the bigger ones are not cordless and have an electric connection. So decide where you need to place them beforehand.

How to use massage tools?

Massage tools are generally used for specified body parts. Most manual massage tools have attachments and speed settings that you can choose according to your need. Once you have decided on the attachment and the speed, place the massager gun/ handheld massager into the tight muscles and move it slowly around the area.

Massage chairs are easy to use once you have installed them. Just slip into the chair and turn on the massage setting and time duration you are in the mood for. It will automatically stop when the cycle is complete.

For foot and calf massagers, sit in a comfortable chair and slide your feet/legs into the cavity. Select the intensity and setting required for the much-wanted relaxation and relief.

Massage cushions, massage seats, and massage mats can be placed under your neck, shoulders, or back for pain relief. The nodules in the cushion and seat will knead your problem areas for that Ohhh to Ahhh relief.

Are massage tools an absolute must-have in the beauty arsenal?

No, massage tools are not an absolute must-have unless you enjoy massages or suffer from some muscle ailment that requires frequent massaging.
