3 Massage Tools You Already Own

For many people massage is a luxury.

Even those with chronic pain from arthritis, joint damage, or muscle strains often can’t afford to see a therapist.

Well, if you’ve seen my recent post about self-massage, you’ve learned a great routine that only takes 15 minutes and will leave you feeling refreshed and re-energized.

But if you feel like you need a deeper massage…using massage tools is the best way to enhance what you’re already doing.

Massage tools can be expensive, so I’m going to tell you about my 3 favorite, everyday items that can be turned into massage tools:

  1. Tennis balls

Tennis ball are for more than just sport. Try rolling one under your foot to ease knots in your arches. You can also place a tennis ball against the wall and lean on it with your back, chest, or shoulders.

I usually roll a tennis ball while sitting at my desk at work or while eating dinner. Any time I have 10 minutes, I usually pull one out and work out the knots in my feet.

  1. Rolling pin

Rolling pins are best used on your legs. Roll it against the front, back, and side of your thighs, as well as your calves for some extra muscle release.

Now, since it’s very hard to stretch the side of your thigh, called the I.T. Band (iliotibial band), that’s one spot, I recommend you show some extra attention.

  1. Lacrosse balls and a sock

Take two lacrosse balls, place them in a long sock, and close up the end. You now have a back massager that you can use while watching T.V., reading, even while driving.

Place the sock so that the balls are on either side of your spine. When sitting, you can simply lean against them and let the pressure work on your muscles. You can also adjust the space between the balls so that they reach the best points in your neck and back.

I like to lean against a wall and roll the balls up and down my spine from my neck to my lower back.

Now all of these are simple and effective tools to help you reduce muscle pain and discomfort any time.

Whenever you have a free moment, whip out your homemade massage tools and work out some of the knots that have been bugging you.

Take care,
