Do you or someone you love endure aches and pains that just won’t go away? I often have to deal with cramps, sore feet, and neck pain. I tried the Recoup Cryosphere Cold Massager and discovered a whole new world of relief. Here’s how it works.
I work out a lot and play sports so I often get muscle cramps and soreness that reduces my performance. The pain also makes it harder for me to enjoy myself. Time and rest can heal most of these problems, but I usually can’t wait. A professional massage would take less time and feel wonderful—but again, time (and money) are limited.
In the past, I would turn to ice packs or a tennis ball roller as a remedy for the pain. Cryotherapy has a lot of benefits and is an amazing way to relieve pain and inflammation. The combination of massage and ice is a standard method used by professionals to promote healing. The ice pack and tennis ball, while no replacement for professional work, would help me recover enough to function. But the relief they offered me was limited. Ice packs are also hard to keep cold, unless you have a cooler or freezer nearby, all the time. I am on the go a lot, so I needed something better.
The idea of having an ice-cold massage roller pushing down on my inflammation was instantly appealing to me. The first time I used the Recoup Cryosphere, I was surprised at how much the ergonomic handle helped. The improved grip gave me superior control and made it easier to use. I was able to use it longer, and it delivered results superior to other massage balls.
The Recoup Cryosphere has helped me with:
If I’m in the middle of a workout and experience a cramp, I take a break and grab the Recoup Cryosphere. The ergonomic grip comes off so that I can use it on my feet and areas I can’t reach with my hands. This feature also makes it easier to clean. It’s easier to take care of cramps and pain at home where I can use the best foam roller I ever bought. It’s a great supplement to the cool-down phase of my workouts. Using large rollers has worked wonders on my back and glutes, but it’s too bulky to slip into my gym bag, so when I am on the go it has to stay home.
I have an entire closet full of massage tools I use after serious workouts. Like the foam roller, however, they take up a lot of space and aren’t very portable. Thanks to the Recoup Fitness Cryosphere, I now have a combined ice pack and massage roller that saves me time and delivers superior results.
After getting comfortable with my Recoup Cryosphere I decided to use it before my workouts, too. It only takes a few minutes, but improves my flexibility and gets me ready to work out. Using the roller helps me identify trigger points that may be about to cause a problem, but just aren’t painful yet.
The Cryosphere has even helped me with motivation. When I don’t feel like working out, I tell myself I’ll use the Cryosphere for a few minutes instead. Not only does it feel great, it also often gets me in the mood for my regular workout.
If you feel like the Cryosphere is a good idea but doesn’t go far enough for your needs, the next step up is a massage gun. Start by reading several Hypervolt reviews to see if you need something that intense (or expensive) right now. Stretching and flexibility are very important, and the Hypervolt powers through muscle knots and tension with results second only to a flesh and blood masseuse.
I made the right decision to purchase the Recoup Cryosphere Cold Massage Roller. It is helping me reach my goals faster and with less pain, and it can do the same for you. I can’t be more pleased with my results.
When you plan to use this cold massage roller, just leave it in the freezer overnight. it stays cold for six hours, so it’s a reliable source of relief that you can take with you wherever you go.
Before you start your next workout, try the Cryosphere for a few minutes. You may also find that it helps you to avoid the pain that gets in the way of your results. After all, the best way to relieve pain is to not experience it in the first place.
You may also keep your cryosphere on hand for first-aid during workouts and sports. If you run into a trigger point or other muscle-related pain, then apply the cold massage to see if it helps. The roller soothes away pain and cramps while lowering inflammation. Therefore, you can keep yourself at peak performance.
Can the Recoup Cryosphere help you? The likely answer is yes. Give it a try and see if you get the same great results that I did.
