Self massage is a highly effective recovery technique for runners, but can be difficult to manage. The Accuball products are designed for reaching a variety of spots that require a little extra help.
The massage ball is designed to relieve tension to different areas of the body, from the length of the Illio-Tibial band, to small muscle groups of the pelvis, or even calves, quads, or other areas in need of massage. The ball is designed with small spiky protrusions covering its surface that stimulate the areas they contact. The core is a hollow filled with a gel-like substance that can be heated in the microwave to add the soothing effects of warmth.
