Three In-Home Massage Tools That Can Help With Muscle Recovery

Whether you live for WODs or just like to take a run around the neighborhood every now and then, compression gear can help support your muscles by reducing trauma and helping to increase power and endurance. It can even give you an extra layer of comfort and protection as you’re tackling chores or running errands. While compression gear is a great option for recovery, there are a few other things that can help enhance the process. Read on to discover three essential in-home massage tools from our friends at iZen that can help you bounce back as well.

If you’re wearing your compression gear for recovery after tough workouts or days filled with strenuous activities, you’re off to a good start. But if you want to prolong those effects and keep your body feeling great, here are three in-home massage tools that can provide instant relief whenever you need it.

Flow Percussion Massage Gun

If you’re familiar with the mixed martial arts or MMA, you know that those athletes’ bodies take beatings on a regular basis. All that action and those major kicks, strikes and blows can lead to a lot of injuries and scar tissue. While you might not be taking swift kicks to the shins or dodging competitors in an octagon, you might be taking on some intense workouts during the week. When those workouts leave you stiff and sore, you can turn to a solution that MMA competitors have embraced over the years — percussion massage.

Percussion massage therapy has been shown to help ease the pain and discomfort of traumatic muscle injuries, surgery, rigorous exercise and training. It’s also been proven to reduce muscle atrophy, improve reflexes and speed up recovery. iZen’s Flow Percussion Massage Gun offers intense deep tissue massages and is easy to operate. It’s even lightweight and customizable with three interchangeable massage heads. So, you can knock out pain and stiffness right at home anytime.

Vibrating Massage Roller

Competitive athletes aren’t the only ones who push their muscles and their bodies to the limit. If you’re lifting, squatting, pushing, pulling or even in awkward positions all day, you’re feeling the strain regularly. And you probably have the knots to prove it. Instead of trying to tough it out, roll it out with a Vibrating Massage Roller.

Foam rolling can facilitate myofascial release and assist in relieving soreness, inflammation and muscle tightness. It can also help you relax. While it comes with a number of benefits, there are a few things to keep in mind before you start rolling your troubles away. Avoid rolling any areas that have been injured, and small joints like your elbows, knees and ankles. Using iZen’s Vibrating Massage Roller is like “foam rolling, on steroids.” It gives you the benefits of a traditional foam roller and delivers deeper, more effective muscle recovery. It’s perfect for CrossFitters, babysitters and everyone in between.

The Fitness Recovery Package

This kit gives you the knot-releasing capabilities of a vibrating massage roller, a more targeted approach to those tough sore spots on areas like your neck, back, legs and arms with a  Universal Personal Massage Wand and muscle relaxation and tissue healing in a portable form with a vibrating massage ball. This package gives you three pulsating in-home massage tools for a great price. And when you’re rolling, tapping or kneading the pain away whenever you need it the most, you’ll realize that immediate relief is worth the investment.
