What is the difference between a massage roller and a vibrating massage roller?
A massage roller is good. A vibrating massage roller is even better.
Why? Simply because vibrations, combined with the weight of your body, enable a deeper massage.
There are also 3 vibration levels for personalising your self-massage: adapt the power of your roller to your needs and the area to be massaged. Good to know: you can use the roller without the vibrations.
Which muscles should you massage with the foam roller?
Our versatile massage roller is designed to access areas of the body which are difficult to massage with your hands.
It is ideal for the legs, especially the major muscle groups such as the thighs and calves.
We recommend a ball or small massage roller for smaller muscle groups such as arms and feet.
Can you use a vibrating massage roller for the back?
We recommend against using vibrations for massaging the back. You can use the roller without vibration to self-massage your back.How? Just like with other massage rollers.Check out the tutorials on our YouTube channel.
If you are planning to buy a massage roller for the back only, we recommend buying a massage roller without the vibration function.
How to massage yourself well after sport
After training, find comfort with an effective massage! Sit down on the floor, set your roller to the intensity of your choice and self-massage each group of muscles. Good news: the vibration does the work for you. For best results, we recommend that you massage each area for at least 3 minutes.
