funds to acquire super-massage chairs from our previous publication (in the amount of six-figure sum in rubles), many simply do not have, and if such money found, there is always a lot of ideas how to spend it better. But the desire to relax at home after a hard day’s work does not disappear. It was coined for this budget option in the form of massage capes. A roller massager home help stretch your body after a busy day in the chair. But all this is not limited to …
⇡ # Massage cape
Even back massagers are not just pens, like showers, and special capes, which is suitable not only for motorists but also office workers. Massage cape – this gizmo that produces a massage at any place convenient for you: at home, in the car, office, cottage and even the workplace. There are legends that are neutralized capes of neck pain and back pain, a positive effect on metabolism and even fit to fight cellulite and stress. In general, not only coffee brews. Question here and in how much effect different from that after a massage chair? We see it, too, will respond shortly.
Wraps are simple and multi-functional home and car, one kind of massage, two, three or more, but globally they should be divided into vibration (or pneumatic vibration) and roller.
In the vibration pattern micromotors are integrated in an amount of 5-10 units. They operate the air cushions, through which the patient feels capes undulating and relaxing massage with vibrating and pulsating action. Technique here is simple: the more motors has cape – the stronger the massage effect it is having. The vibration intensity can be adjusted, and the main effect of these capes is to remove fatigue.
Wraps made of thin and bendable material, so they can be placed on the beds and on chairs and car seats. For the latter, by the way, you need to choose a cape, which provides power from a car battery: it may be the only source of food and supplementary nutrition from the standard AC power.
Cons such capes are obvious: a small selection of massage techniques and the lack of power for his serious study of muscle tissue. So in this sense is much more interesting roller cape.
They are a little more complicated: it is the system that have an impact along the spine and / or buttocks using special clips of medical ceramic or plastic. These capes are provided with a solid frame for fixing roller mechanisms, so you can use them in an upright position (ie stretch on the floor and lie entirely fail).
Unlike vibration capes, roller impact along the long muscles of the spine as a whole and usually can offer up to four types of massage: warm-up, rolling, swing and shiatsu. All of these massages (and others as well) are made using undulations only in various ways. Massage “shiatsu” so generally acts on acupuncture points.
Of the additional features include, for example, display: it will be particularly useful for drivers, but is also useful at home. Another useful feature – the presence of the timer. Since all kinds of massage designed for a certain time, and not all the time can remember the timer will turn off the cape and thereby save not only electricity, but also its own resources. That is not burned out.
Another useful remote control: these panels are quite simple and are usually provided with prompts in the form of icons. There is already a matter of convenience – you will understand these characters or have to read the manual. Power of massage can also be controlled.
The price tag on the vibratory capes, usually small, and usually ranges from 30 to 150 U.S. dollars. Roller will be more expensive, and $ 150 – there is a lower price threshold, the upper and the same can be up to 500.
Country of origin in both cases, most often in China, but there are more expensive German unit. From brands such capes can be called Beurer, HoMedics, Waeco, Imetec, Ommassage, Gametrix, Medisana and Bodycraft.
⇡ # Roller Massagers
Roller massage are not just habit, but also massagers as such.
Roller Massager – it is rather extensive contraption with rotating roller on the center, which can massage various parts of the body – from the feet to the arms and back, you can even just sit on this cushion for massage fifth point. They also contribute to stress relieving muscles of vertebral column and the area between the shoulder blades: it all depends on what kind of place this device lean and which mode to choose. The successful design of such massagers sized nightstand and useful in their versatility as well.
Roller massager Most often made of wood or plastic. The most convenient form of the toothed roller articles, as they more effectively affect: teeth contribute more active circulation. Basis of the massager can be both solid and soft, and the bulk of them – floor, although there are those who are strictly for one part of the body; for example, eye and face, legs, arms, neck or back. And the price range they also have very wide, but despite it not, roller massagers are the most affordable (if you take not primarily floor and manual models).
A good roller massager may be additional functions such as infrared heating. Super-recognized brands such as here, too, no different nameless brands – in abundance. Newtonic, BodyRoll, Rolletic – these are the most famous.
⇡ # Massagers for legs and feet
If you have to back all right, but the legs are tired and need care – then it is necessary to look at the foot massager. They, as usual, is a great variety: from whirlpool baths to what can be called part of the massage chair. And they are intended, respectively, for different types of massage therapy.
Whirlpool baths are multifunctional devices that can just as warm feet and perform a full foot massage. Externally, this device looks like a plastic container, covered on one side visor to protect the surrounding area from spray. Inside the device is equipped with special rollers, nozzles, which are regulated by using the remote control. In a hot bath has several modes (usually three: vibrating, “Jacuzzi” and mechanical massage).
In addition to the main seposobu massage unit can offer and various bonuses. For example, tips for pedicure (brush and the grinding head-pumice). Or contrast baths that consistently affect the feet of hot and cold water. There are cleaning bath, complete with videos that go with brushes.
In conclusion, we pro trays with infrared or with magnets (which affect the magnetic field, respectively). Produce such devices now many famous manufacturers: AEG, Bosch, Bomann, Beurer, Binatone, HoMedics, Vitek, Clatronics and others. The price range for them too great: you can buy something very expensive and a half thousand, but you can for six.

Simply insert there feet – and enjoy a massage.

Their impact in this manner is similar to that of roller massagers: that is more therapeutic effect, relieve fatigue, plus a positive impact in the case of varicose veins. Those and other massagers relatively inexpensive (average from 2 to 10 thousand rubles), but in the case of infrared, will be more brands: Takasima, Promedic, Imetec, Beurer, Casada, HoMedics.
We have already mentioned the “part of the massage chair”: this kind of massager called compression. Pretty great device for compression massage has several local programs and the impact created on the principle of transformer. Thanks to the movable sections, its working surface covers not only the feet, but the shin area and thighs.
