What were you resolutions/goals for the New Year? Was eating better, drinking more water and working out one of them?
I’ve been trying to make more conscious decisions and better choices when it comes to eating (I haven’t lost any weight as of yet). As for exercising, I can honestly say that I have made zero attempt at that. Maybe when the weather gets warmer I’ll go for walks.
We have a gym here in our condo complex. It’s not that big, but it has a treadmill and exercise bike, to name a few.
I’ve always told myself that if/when I can lose some weight and feel less subconscious about myself and my weight, that I would go to our gym and work out. So far, that has not happened. But it is a goal of mine.
With working out comes aches and pains (sometimes, but especially for “newbies”). Actually, getting older comes with it’s own sets of aches and pains. I swear I sound like a breakfast cereal when I get out of bed in the morning – snack, crackle and pop!
My husband often gets a pain in his lower back when he shovels snow. Thankfully we haven’t had much snow this winter.
When one of us needs a massage, we rely on the other to help us out. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible since we both work outside of the home.
We do have some massager, such as one you lean up on with your back while sitting in a chair. That massager is only good for your back. It doesn’t help other parts of your body. It’s also very big and bulky and requires an outlet to plug it into.
Let me introduce you to a handy little massage tool that you can take anywhere (even when you travel). It also does not require electricty and you can use it on your own. It’s called Rykr Roll.
Rykr Roll features both function and innovation, with a stylish on-the-go approach, Rykr Roll’s handheld self-massage product is designed for people to pinpoint pain, and easily apply acupressure and massage to the muscles, promoting better oxygen flow and blood circulation to achieve optimal pain and tension relief – even alleviating myofascial tenderness.
Rykr Roll can also be warmed or cooled depending on what your body needs.
I was sent a Rykr Roll to review.
Like I said, I don’t work out, but I do have aches and pains. My husband and I have slept on a sofa bed for the past 19 years… need I say more? If you’ve ever slept on a sofa bed for even one night, you know how horribly uncomfortable they are.
Rykr Roll is available in different product designs and colors. The one I receive to review is the Myro Rykr Roll.
This brief video shows the Rykr Roll in action.
I am currently suffering with tendinitis in my shoulder. The Rykr Roll can’t “fix it” (I needed a cortisone injection into the shoulder joint – OUCH!), but using the product chilled does make my arm feel better when it’s hurting, especially on my bicep muscle. I just pop the Rykr Roll into the freezer for 10+ minutes, then I use the “ball” end to roll it up and down my shoulder and bicep. It’s something I do for myself. I don’t need anyone to do it for me. That means, when my arm hurts and I’m home (while hubby is at work), I can use the Rykr Roll without assistance.
As you can see in the video, Rykr Roll can be used on just about any part of your body. It can be used to ease muscle pain, or to help increase blood circulation.
Dare I say it also just feels good, especially after a long day at work. You don’t need to be in pain or recover from a work out. It simply feels good.
I like to use it on the bottom of my feet. My husband can’t stand the bottom of his feet touched, but I love to roll the Rykr Roll back and forth on my sore feet. It feels really good (especially when it’s cooled).
I have not tried the Rykr Roll warm yet. Its made of metal (ball ), so it cannot be put into the microwave.
The Ryker Roll I received came in a velvet bag for storage.
You can take the Ryker Roll with you to the gym, work, or when traveling. It’s small in size (about as big as your hand) and lightweight.
No batteries or electricity is required to utilize the Rykr Roll.
I keep the Rykr Roll in the bathroom closet, because you never know when you or someone in your household might need it.
