I was asked to participate in the #NotGonnaStop campaign, sponsored by HoMedics® Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
Tough Workout? Travel? Stress? Why wait for a massage when you can soothe and relax your muscles from the comfort of your own home with HoMedics® Sports Recovery Massagers? If I am being honest, I rely on quarterly massages to help realign my body, decompress from the world and feel rejuvinated after strenuous workouts. In terms of massage practice, convenience is key and affordability is a close second. Although I do wish I could find the time and money to receive professional massages more often, I have come to rely on at-home massage practice between visits to the spa.
Target.com is my go-to site to help fulfill my needs while on the road! Let’s be real…I would be hard pressed to find any gal who could live without Target. LOL On my last trip I stumbled upon HoMedics® vibration massagers and could not wait to get my hands on them! Target.com and HoMedics® I must say…this 30+ millennial thanks you! Using HoMedics® after a long day of work is now a major part of my nightly ritual, and I look forward to using them daily.
Unfortunately, massage is often times considered a luxury instead of necessity, but did you know the benefits of massage dates back thousands of years in Chinese and Egyptian cultures? Back to 2700 BCE-to be exact. There are numerous reasons why massage practice is still around centuries later.
In today’s culture we are straining our bodies and minds at an alarmingly fast rate. It may be from sitting at a desk all day to staring into screens 24/7. Even as you read this post, take not of your posture. Is your head leaning forward? Are your shoulders slumped? Eyes strained? How often do you take the time to open your shoulders, neck and head? If you do not take time…you need to!
In fact, stop right now! Release your head back. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and stick your chest out. Hold for ten seconds and release. Repeat three times taking deep breaths all the way though. You should instantly feel tension in your body release and feel a quick burst of energy throughout your veins! Another reason to take your decompression time seriously…increased energy!
I have used a foam roller for as long as I can remember! It is one of the tools that truly helps to speed recuperating time. The HoMedics ® Gladiator™ Vibration Foam Roller takes rolling to a whole different level with multiple foam textures offering a variety of different sensations and three vibration massage intensities that can be used in all phases of post workout activity. In fact, all of the products featured today offer invigorating vibration for a deeper massage. They are battery operated and the HoMedics ® Gladiator™ Vibration Foam Roller even has a secret compartment for storing keys and other small items making this roller my top choice for my home or on-the-go massage!
My other “go-to” HoMedics ® Sports Recovery Massagers that help diminish muscle tension after tough workouts and long travel days include:
The HoMedics ® Vertex™ Vibration Stick Roller: The vibration soothes overworked muscles utilizing six independent spinning rollers that help to stretch and loosen tired muscles in a rolling action. Trigger point ends release tight muscles with targeted pressure massage and the rubber grip handles make it easy to use. Even after you have worked up a sweat!
The Hydra™ Vibration Foot Massager: Is my second favorite product in the line. You can use it cold or hot with the added benefit of vibration. The vibration refreshes tired feet and the acu-node surface delivers an invigorating massage to the bottom of the feet. My ankles and feet have taken a beating the majority of my life, and honestly, after using the The Hydra™ Vibration Foot Massager I feel re-energized, less dull pain and can quite literally feel the stress of the day being melted away.
The HoMedics The HoMedics® Atlas™ Vibration Acu-Node Massager® AKA my “travel buddy” stimulates and rejuvenates tired muscles like all the others, but this one can easily fit in your fanny pack, purse or backpack. Its acu-node texture delivers a more versatile use to back, legs, arms and feet.
At-home massage with the HoMedics ® Sports Recovery Massagers is something you can do on a daily basis! Remember, when you work out or play hard, it pays to take care of your body. HoMedics® has been a leader in massage for over three decades. They know that relaxed, loose muscles help you perform better and achieve your goals.
Life doesn’t stop. Neither should you. HoMedics® helps you bounce back faster so you can get back to doing what you love! Make it a point to include massage into your monthly routine ASAP, and if you’re looking for additional HoMedics® Sports Recovery Massagers that aren’t listed here, make sure to head to Target.com, HoMedics.com or in store at Rite Aid and remember to BE UNSTOPPABLE!
