Personal massage therapy equipment allows therapists and patients to expand massaging treatment options while reducing physical stress. Most personal massagers are suitable for clinical and home use so patients can continue with therapy at home. Handheld electric massage equipment helps increase muscle mass and improve circulation while helping restoration from muscle injuries.
Ergonomically Shaped Handheld Massagers
Therapists use handheld massagers to treat localized muscle strain and fatigue. They may use wedge-shaped and weighted massaging tools for muscle stripping, to help heal damaged muscles and promote blood flow. Some types of body massagers have round, narrow points for trigger-point therapy. Small spiky plastic balls and rollers help ease aching feet and relieve forearm, hand and wrist pain. Other physical therapy supplies include handheld percussion massagers for performing tapotement treatment while massaging rollers soothe sore muscles.
Perform Deep Muscle Therapy With Percussion Handheld Electric Massagers
Electric percussion massagers expand the capabilities of the original handheld percussion tool to stimulate complete muscle groups simultaneously. These devices have a number of rubber-coated spheres activated by a variable-speed motor. Percussion massagers work at frequencies of around 20 to 40 pulses per second to penetrate deep into muscle groups and ease tension and reduce fatigue. Lightweight models make do with two spheres, while heavy-duty models for professional use may have eight or more balls, making them suitable for full body massage therapy.
Soothing Comfort of Vibrating Massagers
Therapists often use electrically powered vibrating massagers to relax patients at the end of a therapy session. The two primary types of vibrating massage equipment include foot massagers and orbital massagers suitable for full body massage therapy. Apart from promoting foot therapy, some multipurpose models have self-adjusting suspension, allowing their use for other muscle groups such as thigh and calf muscles. Another approach is to use a vibrating wrap with Velcro® fasteners taped around painful joints.
Continuing Massage Therapy at Home
Regular massage therapy is crucial for healing and enhancing muscle tone, especially for athletes and sports professionals. Many personal massagers are suitable for home use once patients learn how to use them correctly. These, together with other healthcare and home gym supplies are crucial for recovery and restoring muscle tone. Check out the CeilBlue™ selection of personal massagers.
