Treat your loved ones to a gift that will allow them to self massage away the stresses and strains of modern life.
My Top Self Massage Gift Choice
This vibrating massage cushion is our top self massage gift choice here as it is the perfect accompaniment for a relaxing evening on the couch and can be used to self massage multiple different areas to achieve relaxation.
Life can be stressful at times and this stress can result in tension building up within the body.
So a great way to release this tension and relax at the end of another long day is by giving yourself a nice massage to any areas of the body that feel tight and sore.
As this will help any tight muscle knots to release and will improve circulation to those areas to keep them healthy and pain and stress-free.
Not to mention making you feel a lot more relaxed and happier within yourself too.
So if you have a loved one that looks a bit stressed out lately, why not treat them to a gift that will allow them to massage themselves better again.
As each of the following self massage gift ideas are ones that will work differetn parts of their body and can be great additions to any self-care routine.
1. A Head Massager For Relieving Stress And Tension
Anyone that has had a head massage before will know just how lovely and soothing it can feel.
As massaging the head, scalp and temples is a great way of reducing stress and anxiety.
So our first self massage gift idea is to get them the USAGA head and scalp massager.
As this manual head massager will give them the option of a lovely stress-busting head massage whenever they need one.
2. A Neck And Shoulder Massager
A lot of stress and tension from daily life also gets held in the neck and shoulder area.
Which is where an electric neck and shoulder massager can be a big help.
As something like the Resteck neck and shoulder massager will sit over their shoulders and deliver a Shiatsu massage via the rotating nodes.
And this one also has a heat option too which can add to the relaxation.
3. A Massage Cane To Manually Work Out The Knots
Many people feel pain and tension in different areas around their body which can make things uncomfortable and difficult for them.
And many times this pain can be caused by tight muscles and muscle knots forming which restrict blood flow and cause a build up of toxins in the area.
So it can be really helpful to self massage these knots and encourage them to release so everything can get back to normal again.
And one self massage gift that can help someone to do this for themselves is the Thera Cane massager.
As this S-shaped massage cane has nodules and handles around the frame that can be pressed into hard to reach areas of the body to provide a deep and satisfying massaging effect.
4. A Foam Roller To Let Gravity Do The Work
Another way that someone can work out any tight muscles or muscle knots is with a foam roller.
As these rollers also have nodules around them and by resting the tight area of your body on them you can roll over the area of pain.
And the force of gravity will allow the nodules to get deep into tight muscles, giving you relief and encourage the muscles to relax.
So a Triggerpoint Grid foam roller is another great manual self massage gift option.
5. Massage Balls For A More Targeted Self Massage
Massage balls work in a similar way to a foam roller.
However, rather than rolling over a large area to find relief, these massage balls can be placed directly into the eye of the muscle knot for a really targeted self massage.
So a set of Kieba self massage balls can be a really nice self massage stocking stuffer gift idea.
6. A Yoga Wheel To Stretch Their Back Out
If your loved one struggles with back pain and needs to work out some tension in that area then a yoga wheel might prove helpful.
As this will allow them to stretch out their back over the wheel and relieve pressure in their spine, giving them a nice back massage that helps to reverse the effects of being hunched over a desk all day.
So check out the Up Circle Seven yoga wheel if they are agile enough to be able to use one.
7. An Acupressure Mat To Stimulate Their Acupressure Points
If your loved one has experienced the benefits of acupuncture as a form of massage then I'm sure they'd appreciate the gift of an acupressure mat.
As these mats have thousands of small plastic needles in them that work on their acupressure points in the same way as acupuncture needles when they lay their body down over them.
And this is great for increasing circulation to tight areas and getting muscle knots to release.
So check out the Nayoya acupressure mat for giving them a unique way of self massaging at home.
8. An Electric Back Massager You Can Use On Them
While self massaging your back can be a great thing to do, there's nothing better than having someone else do it for you.
So why not get your loved one the Body Back Vibe 2.0 handheld orbital massager as a gift.
As you can use this electric back massager to give them a really satisfying massage, as it has a variety of intensity levels and rotates and vibrates deep into their muscle tissue..
And they can use it on themselves to self massage other areas too.
9. A Handheld Massage Gun For Muscle Recovery
Another super useful self massage gift idea for someone is to get them a handheld massage gun.
As they can use the the powerful, vibrating and pulsating heads on these to give themselves a really top massage on any tight areas.
With a top choice for this being the Theragun mini massage gun.
As this one is so good it's an ideal gift for athletes, fitness fanatics and people who play sports to help them to massage tired muscles to aid in their recovery.
10. A TENS Unit For A Pulsating Self Massage
Many people use TENS units to give themselves a way to massage themselves out of pain and discomfort.
As the electrical impulses that these machines deliver are great for stimulating the nerves and muscles in that area, increasing blood flow and relieving pain.
So check out the iReliev wireless TENS unit for a self massage gift idea that can help give them some pain relief.
11. A Massage Stick To Roll Out Tight Leg Muscles
Another area of the body that many people will want to self massage are their legs.
And this is especially the case if they work out or run on a regular basis.
So a massage stick can be a great self massage gift idea for them, as the Theraband roller massage stick will allow them to roll out their tight thighs, quads and calves to gain some much needed relief.
12. A Foot Roller For Self Massaging Sore And Tired Feet
Many people find themselves with sore feet after a long day.
So a foot roller can be a really nice self massage gift to give them.
As these rollers contain nibs and nodules that feel awesome when you roll your feet over them, helping to relieve the tension that has built up.
And for one that will do the trick check out the Gaiam Restore foot massage roller.
13. A Spiky Massage Ball For Their Feet Instead
Another self massage gift option for their feet is to get them a spiky massage ball such as the Pro-Tec spiky massage ball.
As this will work in a similar way to the foot roller when they roll their foot over it.
And they can also use this massage ball on other areas of the body too.
14. A Heated Foot Spa For Total Relaxation
If you're looking for a super relaxing self massage gift where they don't have to put in any effort whatsoever then how about getting them a heated foot spa.
As these feel luxurious on the feet and ankles, with the warm water relaxing and soothing tired feet and the warm jets and massage rollers working out any tension.
With a good choice being the Wahl therapeutic heated foot spa as this one is extra deep to cover their ankles too.
15. A Shiatsu Foot Massager For Pure Heaven
Another low effort self massage gift for people with sore feet is to get them the Renpho Shiatsu foot massager.
As this electric foot massager will give them a powerful Shiatsu massage as well as providing heat to relax them.
So all they have to do is sit down on the couch and pop their feet in for self massage bliss.
16. An Electric Massage Cushion To Relax With
An electric massage cushion can work brilliantly as a self massage gift, as they can use one of these on various areas of the body.
As the rotating nodes deliver a really nice massage wherever you place it such as behind the shoulders or the lower back area.
So this could be a lovely addition to their couch at home to give them a little self massage while they relax and watch the TV or read a book.
And one that they'll be happy with is the Synca Wellness i-Puffy massage pillow.
17. A Massage Chair For The Ultimate In Self Massage Relaxation
Now this next gift idea is a super generous one but it's a gift that can provide the ultimate self massage experience for your loved ones.
And that is to get them their own massage chair.
Because these chairs are pure bliss to sit in as they contain rollers and rotating nodes that run up and down your whole back area as well as vibrating massagers for the legs too.
And they also have heat options to relax your muscles as well as all the lumbar support and comfort they'd need.
So they'll find the perfect form of relaxation by having one of these at home and an example of what you could go for is the Oways zero gravity massage chair.
18. Massage Oil For A Better Self Massage
If your loved one likes to massage areas of their body the old school way then this final gift idea might be the one for them.
As getting them some Majestic Pure sore muscle massage oil will be greatly appreciated.
Because using a massage oil like this rather than self massaging the skin dry will deepen the massage effects and protect and nourish their skin in the process.
And having some of this around is also good if you want tro treat them to a deep oil massage yourself too.
Giving yourself a self massage on a regular basis is a great way of loosening up your muscles and relieving any tension, stress and anxiety you may be feeling.
So getting a loved one a gift to help them to do this is a wonderful thing to do.
And each of the self massage gift ideas that I've featured here can help them to work out various areas of their body to stay healthier, happier and more relaxed.
