Expensive vs. cheap: testing two acupressure mats
by Coya Vallejo Hägi
Massage devices such as fascia rolls, acupressure mats or a shiatsu massager are suitable for the treatment and prevention of tension and, for example, neck pain at home or in the office. Through kneading movements, pressure or vibration, massage devices achieve a loosening of the muscles in different parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders, feet or legs. An infrared light or heat function provides additional relaxation. Depending on the need and the part of the body, different types of massagers are suitable, such as massage ball, fascia roller, shiatsu massager or massage mat. A massage ball or fascia roller is particularly suitable for deep massage of the connective tissue, which provides movement and stability. The shiatsu massager is a real all-rounder and is suitable for relaxation, against headaches or even for digestive problems. Massage mats or acupressure mats are mainly used for relaxation.
