Pregnancy brings all sorts of pain in your muscles and joints as your body changes to accommodate a growing fetus. One of the most common discomforts come from sciatic nerve. It can be painful. Also, as your weight shifts, and baby gets bigger, there is a lot of pressure on your back.
Getting a partner or friend to massage your aching body is a way to go, but for those moments when you are without a massage partner, having a tool on hand to help alleviate discomfort is essential.
I was quite geeked to get an opportunity to try out the dynamic Moji 360
handheld massager which is used by actual physical and massage therapists.
As a runner and a gym rat, I find that extended long runs or workouts leave my muscles totally sore. Using Moji 360, and following the instructional videos at http://GoMoji.com/videos, I learned how to manipulate the device to ease up pain on my own.
The Moji360 is unique, compared to other massage sticks out there because it has many omini-directional stainless steel spheres embedded within it.
I can apply different amount of pressure, or use the larger spheres on big areas and smaller ones to get deep tissue pressure on small knots in my neck.
During a long family road trip recently, I was able to use it on my hubby who got a stiff neck sitting for a long time during long stretches of driving.
Post massage, you feel the difference, for sure, like you really did loosen up some knots, broke up some scar tissue and increased circulation in tight areas.
Sometimes, when I will be sitting at my office desk all day, I would slip the Moji 360 massager along the back of my chair with the balls facing towards my back and will rub my back against it whenever I needed a little mini massage to keep me going.
All of these uses can work for moms-to-be as well. You can use it before, during or after a work out or whenever you just want a little massage. It comes with a full year warranty, as well.
The device retails for $49.00 and you can get it from the company’s website
, find a local retailer
or pick up one at a slightly discounted price via our Amazon affiliate
. The company sells a mini massager, a foot massager and a lower back massage device as well.
Get it! Go Moji!
