Good for anyone that has pain that massage could manage but also for active people to aid with recovery and muscle soreness. Great for Myofascial Release. Also suited for Trigger Point Therapy and Deep Tissue Massage.
I get a lot of back pain due to bad posture and a dodgy side of the bed. I suppose it is what you get for slouching at a desk all day.
I have tried many things to ease the pain including certain forms of exercise but it hasn’t really helped. I have tried massage that helps a little but have never tried massage balls before so when I saw these I thought they were definitely worth a try. I had tried a tennis ball before to no effect.
When these arrived they were nicely packaged in a black drawstring back with the Starwood Sports logo and covered in a plastic package.
The first thing I noticed about the balls was they were of a really good quality covered in a rubber type material. They are a really good weight and at this point I could see the potential of them being effective. The drawstring bag is a bonus as it keeps them tidy and can be hung along with other equipment I have in the gym room.
I asked my husband, ok begged my husband to massage my back with these balls to see what if any benefit I would get from these. To be fair during the massage I could feel the balls getting into the tissue of my back and releasing some of the tension. I felt a little looser and had a little less pain after just one massage which is fantastic. In addition, I used these on my husband after his work out and he was impressed.
The peanut lacrosse massage balls come with a lifetime guarantee so you can rest assured that they are durable and well made.
I would recommend these balls to anyone that has pain that massage could manage but also to active people to aid with recovery and muscle soreness. I can see the potential in these for working cramps out as and when they arise.
As I had not used these before I used a two handed palm roll technique to massage with them. However, I am going to spend time looking at how to use these balls to the maximum effectiveness.
