Back and Body Massagers at Walgreens

You don't need to spend outrageous amounts of money every week in order to enjoy all the benefits of massage. In fact, many people find that they are able to relieve tension and ease muscle pain by massaging themselves or with the help of a partner at home. Walgreens has a wide range of back and body massagers that you can use to make your muscles feel great.

Benefits of Massage

Massage is one of the most widely accepted components of alternative medicine, and research has uncovered almost countless benefits. In addition to easing muscle pain and stiffness, routine massage can also help combat anxiety, enhance your immune system, improve circulation, lessen fatigue, and more. Since massage causes your body to release endorphins, it can also relieve pain naturally and help you feel consistently better.

Types of Back and Body Massagers

Handheld massagers can be great tools to target a stiff back. These products are designed with an ergonomic handle to alleviate some of the awkwardness that you might encounter when simply trying to reach your back with your hands. Many of them also have several different attachments and settings to allow you to target specific muscle groups and control the intensity of your massage.

Massage cushions are another product that can be used to ease pain and stress throughout your back. These massagers typically fit onto your chair and provide relief either through vibration or a kneading motion that you can enjoy while you sit and go about your daily routine. Many people will use these cushions in the car to make their commute a more pleasant experience or in the office to lessen tension at work.

Some of the most popular massage products don't actually have any electronic components at all. Instead, they simply allow you to apply a more consistent pressure on the area you want to massage without needing to put any undue strain on your hands and fingers. These products come in the forms of massage rollers as well as multipurpose massagers that can be used to target trigger points and promote healthy circulation. While you can use these products on your own, many people prefer to use them with a partner who can have easier access to hard-to-reach areas like your back.

Tips for Self-Massage

No matter what type of tool you are using, it's important to go about your massage the right way in order to relieve the most stress and avoid unnecessary pain. The best time for a massage is right after you take a bath or a shower so that your muscles are relaxed and loosened. When targeting your back, it's best to start from the top and work your way down. Massage the back of your neck and your trapezius muscles (the muscles that run across your shoulder blades and often carry some of the most tension). Whenever you find a knot, you can use your massager to work it out by pressing softly at first and then increasing pressure as the muscle relaxes. As you continue down to your middle and lower back, you can target the muscles that help hold up your spine, but avoid the actual vertebrae themselves. You can also use your back and body massager to relieve tension in your glutes, legs, and arms-just make sure to use the right attachments and adjust the pressure as necessary.

With all the benefits it can provide, there's no reason why you shouldn't enjoy regular massage as long as your doctor feels it is right for you. There are some indications and conditions in which massage is contraindicated. But if you're a good candidate for massage then these massagers may be just what you need. So browse the back and body massagers available from Walgreens and you can soon be on your way to feeling better.
