Massage Balls

The simple design of massageBalltm (also known as a reflex ball) massages the skin and muscles using the 230 densely packed, raised points on the ball's textured surface. The increased blood flow stimulated by the massaging action helps to remove muscles tension, while the dimples affect the sensory organs of the skin, increasing afferant stimulation of the nervous system. This is particularly important when dealing with the soles of the feet.

  • Massage Therapy Ball

    Using your massage ball

    Your massage ball can be used directly over clothing or on bare skin. If you use it on bare skin avoid using oil as it makes it too slippery. Use a little body talc instead. You can use light or heavy pressure depending on your needs. The pressure can be applied to a single point or rolled over wider areas.

    It depends on how much pressure you apply and what kinds of problems you may have. Any application that directly addresses myofascial (soft-tissue or muscular) problems (such as neuromuscular, deep tissue, trigger-point, or similar therapies) may be painful when treating problem areas; the pain comes not from the work itself but from the tissue pathology. If you have serious or intense pain you should consult your physician or health professional.

    Important Warning

    Avoid using your massage ball over any recent tissue damage, such as a broken bone, a bruise or wound. Care should be taken with deep work on persons with fragile or brittle bones. Areas of internal organic problems should be avoided. If there is any doubt consult your physician or helath professional.

    Your massage ball is made from PVC (it contains no rubber). The PVC contains traces of lemon/citronella oils to give a fresh hygenic small. You can wash your massage ball with warm soapy water and refresh its small by applying a mix of lemon and water.

    The Massage Ball in Therapy

    Pain from tense, strained muscles and joints is one of the most common problems healthcare professionals deal with. Whether due to physical injury, or as a direct result of daily stress, the results can be agonising for the sufferer. Using the principles of acupuncture, zonal therapy and massage, these massage balls aim to bring relief from pain caused by muscle tension and aid recovery from musculoskeletal injuries. The simple design of the ball massages the skin and muscles using the 230 densely packed, raised conical shaped areas on the ball's textured surface. The increased blood flow stimulated by the msaaging action helps to relieve muscle tension, while the raised points on the ball's surface affect the sensory organs of the skin increasing afferant stimulation of the nervous system. This is particularly important when dealing with the soles of the feet.

    The Massage Ball is particularly effective on paraspinal muscle tension and when used on trigger points. Reflexologists (also known as Zonal Therapists) also report dramatic results where stimulation of zones and hands and feet may help the organism get rid of the body's waste products; all organs, joints, senses, hormonal and nervous systems are represented in the body's reflex zones. It also stimulates the accupuncture meridian lines, increasing the body's energy flow. There are 12 main meridian energy channels. All are associated with specific organs and bodily functions. In acupuncture, specific points along the meridian channels are accessed. In everyday life we naturally and often unknowingly scratch and rub ourselves, thereby unwittingly unblocking and energising pressure points. When using the massage balls, you need not worry too much about the specific locations of the meridians.

    There are two different types of ball available. The massageBall has different shaped nodules - see picture in navy blue. The other is a reflex ball, pictured in light green. Please ask for either a Reflex Ball or a Massage Ball.
