Massage roller made in cork, cylinder shape, which, thanks to its hard and smooth surface, proves to be particularly stimulating during the massage of the muscles. The elevated hardness and the reduced diameter (10 cm) of this roller make it more challenging when compared to the Eva Polyetilene Massage Roller (model code 2500). The Cork Roller is particularly effective for self-massaging and stretching exercises, which are useful for muscle relaxation and muscle tension release. The pressure of the body weight on the roller determines the compression of the so-called trigger points, which are painful and irritable muscle knots from which can derive muscle hypertension. According to the theories of mechanical treatment through massage, the compression of these knots could neutralize one of the primary sources of pain and causes of muscle hypertension. Hard Massage Ball and Massage Roller are suitable for all the activities aimed at improving muscle functionality, joint mobility, improving posture, and, therefore, the efficiency and wellbeing of the body.

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.
