A massaging body bar
“Massage bars help to reduce soreness and discomfort and are less messy when built into solid form than in base oil form,” said Tai Hall, a massage therapist and owner of Taime Out Massage Studios.

This massage bar can be custom made with any scent, like lavender or a unique massage relief blend.

Get the Solid Lotion Massage Bar from Etsy for $10.
A massage gun
Kevin Dwayne, a certified personal trainer, recommends using a massage gun to help release muscle tension and reduce inflammation.

Hydragun is a quiet massage gun with a 12mm amplitude tip, which you can use for an at-home deep tissue massage. You can customize the intensity of your massage to best vibrate your muscles for instant relief.

A nourishing body lotion
Equipped with a botanical blend of nutrients, this lotion will help you decompress and decrease tension in your body. All you gotta do is pump a little bit of lotion on your hands and gently massage areas of your body in circular motions. This will also help relax and loosen up tight muscles, Hall said.

A foot massager
Treat your feet with heat using truMedic’s foot massager. This ergonomic tool helps relieve pressure and soreness in your foot muscles by targeting specific acupressure points in the feet through its combination of rollers, heat and airbag compression.

Bath salts
If your entire body is aching after a long day, hop into the bathtub filled with warm water and these eucalyptus bath salts. A soak will soothe every part of your body, from your head to your toes.

“Bath salts can aid in reducing cramping in spastic muscles, tension headaches, and stress around joints,” Hall said.

A bamboo mattress
The surface on which you sleep influences how relaxed your muscles can get, said Jonathan Leary, chiropractor and owner of Remedy Place. He recommends a soft mattress that can support your body, such as a memory foam mattress.

Cariloha’s classic mattress is made with memory foam and plush viscose from bamboo. The mattress relieves pressure and adapts to your body shape, decreasing pressure off the body’s main contour points and giving you a good night’s sleep.
