The Original Worm
We all demand a lot of our bodies: work, exercise, injury, daily stress, age… in other words, LIFE!
Life’s demands can cause tension, muscle aches and knots, spasms, and stiffness.
I don’t own a worm, but I do own (and love) yoga balls, and various foam rollers, and this seems like the best combination of them both. The Original Worm is a portable, full body massage roller that provides relief from neck to feet and pretty much everything in between. It combines the benefits of therapy balls with a foam roller. These massage roller balls will provide trigger point release to combat stiffness, pain and stress in muscles and joints. An easy to use, easy to carry, self massage tool.

Weighted blankets are all the rage right now, showing extreme benefits for those with stress, anxiety and difficulties sleeping. The nodpod is just like that- but for your eyes- giving you the best sleep you deserve. When gentle pressure is applied to the body, it has a profound calming effect, like a hug. This science is known as Deep Touch Pressure and it’s something we can all benefit from.
