Types of fascia tools
There are now many fascia tools that are used in therapy. Fascia rollers are among the best-known fascia tools. But there are other tools that are used for the treatment of fascia or in fascia training.
With a massage stick you can massage out muscular complaints or adhesions in the fascia and even sore muscles. You can use it on all large muscle groups and apply targeted pressure to the respective part of the body. Self-massage with the massage stick promotes blood circulation in the tissue and increases elasticity. In particular, the grooved surface structure of the massage stick provides a special massage effect.
Fascia balls are suitable for the selective treatment of individual muscle groups and trigger points that are often difficult to access. Especially small sensitive muscle groups such as the neck, shoulders or feet can be easily reached and massaged with a fascia ball. Thanks to the small practical size, you can take the ball with you at any time and use it on the go. For a spot massage with the fascia ball, you lie or stand on the aid and roll out the part of the body to be treated. To better massage certain areas of the body, such as the shoulder blades or back, you can also use a wall to help you.
Fascia scrapers are products that help to loosen adhesions in the fascia, soften scars and improve blood flow in the tissues. They are designed to allow the therapist to work optimally on the surface of the skin and to smooth out the fascia tissue. A fascia scraper has blunt, rounded edges and can leave slight marks on the skin when used. The redness that often occurs is part of therapy with a scraper, as the fascia scraper is usually made of stainless steel. When pressure is applied during the stroking process, traces are thus left on the patient's body.
