Hard Massage Cork Ball. A version in cork of the massage ball Code 1275. The ball, with a diameter of 6.5 cm, has been specially designed for self-massage exercises and muscle relaxation.
For the Cork Ball, the same principles apply as for the Cork Roller 2499. It is advisable to combine these two tools for a complete workout. The pressure of the body weight on the ball, or the roller, determines the compression of the so-called trigger points, irritable and painful muscle knots, from which muscle hypertension can derive. According to the theories of mechanical treatment through massage, the compression of these knots can trigger one of the primary sources of pain and root of muscle hypertension. Hard Massage Ball and Massage Roller find application in activities aimed at improving muscle function, joint mobility, and activities to improve the functional efficiency and well-being of the body. These are the main reason why the use of these tools in athletic preparation is increasing.
Compared to the massage roller, the work performed with the ball is much more precise, deep, and intense. The size of the ball allows us to reach with precision the points to be treated, even the most difficult, and its hardness allows an intense action. The ball deforms very little and, like the masseur’s fingers, can cause a deep stimulation. Stimulation that becomes effective, and at times painful, if the ball is pressed with much weight on it. For this reason, in addition to the floor, it may be appropriate to use on walls or other surfaces for better control of the pressure exerted and better manage the de-stressing movements.

This set represents a remarkably improved solution, mostly from an aesthetic point of view. The cork expresses the image of a natural material, bio-compatible, in harmony with life, which appears exceptionally coherent with this type of tool, often used as accessories for holistic disciplines.
There are technical aspects that justify the realization of this fitness tool, relying on this specific material to be used in contact with the body. The cork is structured in closed cells. It has essential qualities: non-toxic, hypoallergenic, odorless, waterproof, compact, resistant, light, durable, and flexible. It is no coincidence that the classical application of the cork is linked with the production of caps for wine bottles.
The behavior of the cork to the wetness, and particularly to sweat, along with its high waterproof qualities, could be considered the most critical aspect in the fitness application of this material. Cork has both a hygienic function and the safety feature that the cork does not become slippery.
The high grip is indeed a critical quality of the cork tools series. It is a feature that becomes essential in the case of the mat. The Cork Mat code 3014 is extraordinarily slip-resistant. Actually, the more it gets wet, the more it increases its grip on the surface. This feature makes it optimal for any holistic discipline, with particular reference to Hot Yoga.
