The Best Massage Tools To Relieve Stress

The Best Massage Tools To Relieve Stress

I think we can all agree that this is a pretty stressful time. From the fear of getting ill to the complete upheaval of our normal routines, it has been a turbulent few weeks. So, to help you to relax your body and ease your mind, I’ve gone out and found the best massage tools that will wash your stress away. From facial and scalp massages to full body pampering, these are my top picks.

The Five Best Massage Tools

1. FOREO IRIS™ Eye Massager

I don’t know about you but one of my favourite parts of a facial is when they massage under and around my eye area. It’s just so relaxing! Well, thanks to the FOREO IRIS™ Eye Massager, I’ve been able to recreate that experience at home.

You can either use the gentle ‘Pure Mode’ to create a soft, manual massage, or select ‘Spa Mode’ and have it delicately tap and pulse against your skin. You just apply a serum or cream around your eyes, then move the device around your eye contours for 30 seconds on either side. Not only will it make your cream even more effective, but it will feel really soothing too!

2. Sarah Chapman Skinesis The Facialift

Speaking of the best massage tools, you can recreate a whole facial experience at home thanks to the Facialift. This handy device boasts 8 massage heads and 48 nodules that help to relieve tension, promote blood flow and reduce puffiness.

For best results, hold it parallel to the ground and perpendicular to your face. Starting along your jawline, push the Facialift towards your face so that the massage heads roll along your jaw. Repeat 5 to 6 times, then move the Facialift slightly higher up on your face and repeat until you reach your cheekbones. You can also do this on your neck. Trust me, it’s as close to a real facial as you can get!

3. GLOV Skin Smoothing Body Massage Glove

For an all-over body massage, I’d recommend the GLOV Skin Smoothing Body Glove. When you glide it over your skin using circular motions, the bamboo fibres massage your skin, leaving it feeling smooth and soft.

I’d recommend using it alongside your favourite body scrub or a sweet-smelling shower gel as you soak in the bath. It will make the whole experience all the more soothing.

4. Gatineau Jade Facial Roller

Made of white jade, this Facial Roller is a fantastic way to give yourself a relaxing facial massage. Not only does it feel really cool against your skin, but it helps to relax your muscles and ease any tension. Plus, it will improve the look and feel of your skin at the same time, helping to eliminate toxins, even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

For best results:

  •       Start at the base of your neck and roll upwards towards your jawline
  •       From the middle of your chin, make broad strokes with the roller out towards your ear
  •       Roll from your jawline up towards the middle of your cheeks
  •       Use broad strokes to roll it from the side of your nose to your ears
  •       Roll from the tear duct to the temple
  •       Roll along your brow towards your temples
  •       Roll from your eyebrows up to your hairline
  •       Roll from the middle of the forehead out towards the temples.

5. Denman Be-Bop Massager

Let’s just admit it, we all love it when someone plays with our hair. It gives us that shivers-down-the-spine, goosepimply feeling. So why not indulge in one of the best massage tools to recreate that same effect: a gentle head massage?

This brush boasts extra-soft plastic pins that gently massage your scalp as you move it through your hair. You can use it under the shower to apply your shampoo or to brush your styling products through your dry hair. Either way, it offers a truly relaxing massage. 

And there you have it, five of the best massage tools to help you to feel relaxed whilst we wait for COVID-19 to run its course.
