How to make the most of the physio ball

One of the questions that our therapists receive often from clients is how to maximise the benefits of massage therapy between treatments. In addition to stretching and light exercise like yoga or pilates, a great way to give relief to tense areas is using a massage ball.

There are different types of massage balls available: from very smooth and firm like the lacrosse ball to small and soft like the squash ball. Other alternatives include the tennis ball or the spiky ball, the latter being quite good for foot stimulation.
