CORK BALL – Massage Ball Ø 6.5 cm
The code 1274 is the cork version of the Hard 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 code 2499: it is indeed 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.

The Holistic Cork Kit
The line of products made of cork consists of 5 tools:
This item represents a significantly better solution from an aesthetic point of view. The cork expresses the image of a natural material, bio-compatible, in harmony with life, which is exceptionally coherent with this type of tool, often used as accessories for holistic disciplines.
There are also technical aspects that justify the realization of fitness tools in cork to be used in contact with the body. The cork, structured in closed cells, has essential qualities: non-toxic, hypoallergenic, odorless, waterproof, compact, resistant, light, durable, and flexible. It is no coincidence that the cork’s classical application is associated with caps for wine bottles.
The cork’s behavior, particularly to sweat, combined with its high waterproof qualities, represents the most exciting and reliable feature when it comes to wetness. This material’s fitness application is excellent due to its hygienic function and that cork does not become slippery. The high grip is indeed an essential quality of these tools, a feature that becomes fundamental in the mat’s case. The Cork Mat code 3014 is exceptionally slip-resistant: the more it gets wet, the more it increases its grip on the surface. Optimal for any holistic discipline, with particular reference to Hot Yoga.
