Self massage tools allow us to have the convenience of self massage for tension-filled muscles wherever we are - at work, at home or away from home. 

Massage tools have grown in popularity so much, that there are now companies who make only these types of  tools. Also, there are companies who offer foot massage as a benefit, a way to help employees get through the work day.

Holistic choices for health are now being sought by health-minded consumers all over the world, and demand is growing.

Some speculate that healthcare costs rising year after year, as well as consumer's desire for less consumption of drugs and/or medical procedures may be the reason why people want more holistic self care options.

As a result, consumers now try to learn more about their health and what  they can do naturally to encourage their healing.

5 Self massage tools (2020)

Many of these muscle problems cause pain, reduced range of motion, and severe inflammation if not addressed properly. That is one reason why massage therapy has grown in popularity with consumers over the past decade.

Self massage tools are now being suggested by massage therapists to clients who need muscle tension relief more often than their pocket books will allow more visits to the therapist.

Tools come in a many shapes and are used for different muscle issues. No tool does it all, and each consumer needs specific massage tool features.

These are our recommendations for specialty massage tools. All are hand-held tools, rolling tools, or handle-type massage tools for easy use by the consumer.

The primary goal in deeper massage therapy techniques is using compression. Holding pressure at an appropriate level, allows you to feel the tension release and relax.

If the pressure is too much, a subtle massage at the point of the compression may be used. Tools just help you apply pressure for longer periods, without fatigue.

Self massage tools and techniques help many folks in their quest to learn how to care for their own muscles.

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for people who want to learn about massage, and how to relax our minds to release anxiety and stress.

I have had many clients come for massage, only to discover they just needed to talk, or they needed to cry, and let go of pain or worry, or stress, in a place they felt safe.

Finding a way to relax our minds, and  release stress and tension, is critical for a healthy immune system, as we find our way through this pandemic.

Now, because of this virus, I teach folks about the benefits of massage, essential oils, body scrubs, bath bombs, and other make-at-home goodies that help us de-stress in the comfort and safety of home ... to relax the mind and body, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to relax at home, is a very close second!

So, let's learn how to relax, to release stress, and rock this pandemic together!

Solo Build It!
