In 15 years of doing massage, I have bought and used many massage tools for self care. Of the many I have tried, there are only a few I use consistently and recommend to others.
These are the tools I use to help me after a long day of giving massages and what I recommend to my clients for self massage at home between their appointments.
For years, I have seen how self massage can help decrease pain and maintain the benefits of massage between appointments. My clients who use these tools have a better awareness of where their pain is, what causes it, and often report less pain and tension between appointments.
These simple, safe tools can be used anytime over clothing. They can be kept in your car, travel bag or office desk.

Foam Roller or Grid Roller
Foam rollers can be used for toning exercises, but they also make excellent self care massage tools. At the end of the day, foam rolling is my favorite method to relieve tension and improve posture.
- Low, mid and upper back tension
