The 3 Best Self Massaging Tools of All Time

If you haven't heard of the Buddy Back Massager, then it's worth taking a look. They could become your new best friend, as the name suggests! Being in the midst of a pandemic doesn't mean you should miss out on your massages every now and then. Especially after sitting in front of your computer screen for hours on end with your shoulders scrunched up, it's important to make sure you still look after your body.

Seeing a massage therapist can easily cost you $60 and above and your partner might not be the best person to know where your problem areas are. Luckily, the easiest way to get knots out is with a back massager which gives you value for money. With thousands of reviews and an average of 4.5 star average rating, clients and therapists alike seem to really agree that this is the best massaging tool.

Besides saving you money and time from going to a masseuse, you get to control the pressure you apply to your muscles and get instant relief anytime around the clock.

And the best part yet? The tool is only 500 grams, which is handy if you need to travel with or take to your office. It also comes with a 12 page instruction manual to guide you on your self-massage journey. Clients have not only used this to calm painful tight knots in the back, but have also successfully ease tension in other areas such as the neck, shoulder, feet and legs.

Function wise this back massager can easily reach difficult areas such as between your shoulder blades and the middle of your back. It is made of high quality plastic compared to its competitor, Theracanes, therefore durable and can withhold lots of pressure if you need to target those tight spots. Once you've mastered how to use it, you can probably even do it with your eyes closed!

If you're looking for a foam roller that professionals use, look no further than the TriggerPoint Foam Roller. While there are lots of different foam roller brands in the market, TriggerPoint has a reputation for taking weight well and keeping its shape after many months of use. It is said to support body weights up to 226kg.

This foam roller is not only a great combination for stretching, it provides benefits such as targeting trigger points in your lower back, shoulder and legs. This is especially handy if you often get sore muscles and need a quick relief. Regardless of what sport or training you are into, this is a trusted tool that many physical and massage therapists, as well as athletes, coaches and trainers use in their recovery program. Some athletes even say it beats going to the masseuse!

The only downside to these foam rollers is it may be a bit small if you are quite big and tall and are planning to massage both legs at the same time. If this is the case, TriggerPoint has come up with a solution. This foam roller also comes in double the size at 26 inches (66cm) with the same premium material and firmness which you will able to get it here.

Looking for something smaller to fit in your bag or purse so that you can take your personal massager tool wherever you go? The Kieba Massage Lacrosse Balls might be the way to go.

They come in a set of 2, and 3 different colour sets to choose from: blue and red, green and yellow or 2 orange. Both come in the same size and weigh a mere 200grams. Many people including physiotherapists have reported that these balls are extremely helpful with relieving stress and tension in the upper shoulders and back. The bright colours mean that it'll be highly visible you'll never lose them or find yourself tripping over them.

To give you a better idea, these balls are slightly harder than a tennis ball. If you find them difficult to position on your back or neck, a tip might be to insert the balls into a sock or stocking and that way you will be able to reposition the balls more easily and target a specific area. Though the surface of the balls are smooth, you will be surprised at how well these balls can relieve pressure points and make you feel like a million dollars after!
