MUJI’s Massage Tools Will Leave You Feeling Great

MUJI offers a range of everyday products at a reasonable price, such as clothing with simple designs that is easy to match, premade food pouches that taste just like homemade food when heated, and a host of other items such as cosmetics, bedding, and even furniture. I'm sure there are a number of loyal MUJI devotees out there already, right? The massage tools offered by MUJI both look stylish and feel great. Let's take a look at them in greater detail.

Perfect for Using While Doing Other Things

This writer recommends the "Multi Massager" which retails for 490 JPY (incl. tax) and the "Massage Ball" at 590 JPY (incl. tax). Having walked into the store without any real purpose, I fell in love with them at first glance and just had to purchase them.

The "Multi Massager" is perfect for loosening muscle tension and resembles the tetrapods that can be seen along coastlines near the waters edge. The "Massage Ball" is made of porcelain and is designed to work specific pressure points. The massage ball that I purchased had defined and pointed corners, however I believe that there is also a version with rounder edges.

There have been numerous satisfied comments from users of these products such as, "They can be used while watching TV or while lying down", "The size is just perfect", "You can give yourself a little massage wherever you are" and, "If it were purely round it would start to roll, so this shape is great". I decided to try it out for myself.

You Can Use Them on a Number of Different Parts of the Body

Firstly, I decided to use the "Multi Massager" and was impressed by the different sizes of the ball shaped portions. This meant that the massager was useful on a number of different parts of the body, such as the shoulders, shoulder blades and calves. It has a great grip to it, so it is easy to apply pressure. One key feature of the "Multi Massager" is that it is great at working out the areas you wish to apply a lot of pressure to but also those areas you want to be a bit more gentle with.

The "Massage Ball" has a diameter of 4.5 cm and is a perfect size for even those with smaller hands. By the way, it even feels great just squeezing it in your hand! As you would expect, it words great when gripped tightly giving rise to the type of massage that gets your lymph fluid flowing, but me personally, despite being the type of person who gives up on this sort of thing fairly quickly, I was more impressed with the gentle and pleasant stimulus given off by placing it under the calves or thighs of an outstretched leg. This meant that I was able to continue with my wellness routine for a much longer period than usual.

At first glance you would realise that this is designed for massages but has a more refined look than other similar items on the market, meaning that when you are finished with it you can place it back on the shelf and it will act as a sort of ornament. That's just another great feature of this product!

If you want to go to the bother of getting a professional massage it costs money and takes time, so why not give MUJI's massage tools a try instead?
