Yogom massage balls are not only made of cork but their weight is light while being very dense ! You won’t get hurt if the brick falls on your foot (handy for beginners and if your child is around)! The ball is a little smaller than a tennis ball with its diameter of 50 mm and is denser so more suitable for the practice of self massage.

It is more durable over time!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A MASSAGE BALL?
The massage ball is the ideal accessory to do good without being a massage professional.
These balls allow you to self-massage in order to relieve muscle pain related for example by the exercise of physical effort or by stress and tension related to poor posture and to provide you with relaxation and relaxation.
The pressure of the ball will have a therapeutic effect on the massaged area. massaging the areas of the body by activating the different reflexology points.
The use of the massage ball is easy: just slide it over the part of the body to be massaged. If you have, for example, muscle pain in your neck, simply roll the ball over this area. The pressure and intensity you put into it will help resolve tensions. The immediate effect can be intense and you may even have pain in the area after the massage but as soon as 24 hours after the area will be untied and you will feel an immediate effect. Repeat the self-massage for several days in a row until you are no longer in pain.
Regular exercise work with the ball can also improve blood circulation. Use the balls after work and muscle-strengthening exercises to prevent post-session pain and relax. Massage your feet, shoulders, arms. Also insert the ball during a massage if you are used to massaging a friend or your partner. Yoga balls are used to self-massage but also as an accessory to massage another. There are other products such as the roller to practice self-massage or balls in pimples and also balls like ours but in pvc, we do not recommend any of these products. Spiked balls can provide too much tension. You will see the cork balls already provides because of their density compared to those in pvc foam, a very powerful rebound effect on tensions. PVC balls are soft and will therefore provide a much less important relaxation. PVC foam is also less durable over time, not to mention the unpleasant smell it generates.

3 exercises to perform with the Yogom yoga massage ball
1: Relax the cervical
Lie on the floor, place the ball under your neck on a yoga mat or try placing the ball on a yoga brick. Roll the ball like a roller very gently from left to right, up and down, make very small movements. If it is too painful or you prefer the sensation you can also hold the ball in one place as identify as painful and stay in this position. The pressure will diffuse a throbbing or painful effect but it is what will relax the muscle or area as pressure exerted by the hands of a masseur or therapist. You can place the ball rather on the skull above the ears or lower in the cervical. There are no contraindications.
2: relieve the lumbar and sacrum
Always in postures lie down, place the ball at the level of the sacrum and still make small movements from left to right and up and down or stay in the same place.
3: stretch the hamstrings, arch and entire posterior chain
This exercise could be performed every day for a few minutes to act as a reflexology work but also to relax the feet, ankle and logically to allow the whole leg to relax, tone at the same time and therefore relieve back pain. Stand up, stand up straight, feet apart from the width of the pelvis, feet firmly anchored in the ground. Place the ball in front of your right foot, sheathe the left leg, take off the right feet to wait for the ball and roll it under your arch very gently. The leg whose foot rolls the ball must be very light. Your pelvis should not shift and therefore you must enormously sheathe your opposite leg to stay balanced. This exercise also has the benefit of toning the muscles of the legs and buttocks. Try doing it for a few minutes and then do the same on the other side. It is an excellent workout if you want to build muscle gently but deeply and without hurting yourself!
Self-massage with ball is much more versatile than with roller. We therefore advise you to start by preferring yoga massage balls rather than rollers and cork balls rather than balls with hedgehog pimples too aggressive for pain or foam balls too soft.
