Hard Massage Cork Ball Code 1275. The ball, with a diameter of 6.5 cm, has been specially designed for self-massage exercises useful for muscle relaxation.
For the Cork Ball, the same applies as for the Cork Roller 2499, tools that it is advisable to combine. 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 “defuse” one of the primary sources of pain and cause of muscle hypertension. Hard Massage Ball and Massage Roller find application in activities aimed at improving muscle function, joint mobility, and therefore in activities aimed at improving 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 to reach, and its hardness allows an intense action. The ball deforms very little and, like the masseur’s fingers, can cause a deep stimulation. Effective stimulation but also painful if the ball is pressed with a lot of 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.
Diameter: Ø 6.5 cm
The Cork tools set is composed of 5 tools:
This set represents a particularly improved solution mostly from an aesthetic point of view, as the cork expresses the image of a natural material, bio-compatible, in harmony with life, which appears extremely coherent with this type of equipment, often used as accessories for holistic disciplines.
There are also technical aspects that justify the realization of this fitness tool, with this specific material, to be used in contact with the body. The cork is structured in closed cells and it has important 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 reaction of the cork to the wetness, and in particular in this case to our sweat, and its elevated waterproof qualities could be considered the most important aspects in the fitness application of this material, both for its hygienic function and for the safety fact that the cork does not become slippery. The elevated grip is indeed an important quality of these tools, which become 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 is optimal for any holistic discipline, with particular reference to Hot Yoga.
