Physical therapists and chiropracters at The Boston Ballet Company chose and recommend Muscle Angels® massagers for their dancers with sore muscles. This holiday season, Muscle Angels® help minimize the intensity and frequency of muscle pain from common repetitive stress injuries from dancing, including piriformis syndrome/sciatica, tight iliotibial (IT) bands, sore iliopsoas muscles, plantar fasciitis, referred pain associated with arthritis and fibromyalgia, leg cramps, tendonitis or carpal tunnel injuries and more.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) Dec. 08, 2011. Medical personnel recognize the preventative and therapeutic benefits, ease-of-use and portability of this unique product and, therefore, appreciate Muscle Angels® patented ergonomic design, which has proven effective for quick relief from all-over-body muscle pain. This proven relief is the reason the Boston Ballet Company has become a true believer in Muscle Angels® massagers–especially, during the busy Nutcracker season.
Whitney Jensen, soloist with the Boston Ballet, praises Muscle Angels® for helping reduce muscle pain after a strenuous day of dancing. “My Muscle Angels® massager really helps to work out the tight muscle knots [from eight hours of dancing each day]. I have to guard it carefully though, as my fellow colleagues have been known to steal it from my dance bag”!
The Muscle Angels® massager is the first product of its type to combine the benefits of myofascial trigger point, acupressure and deep-tissue massage, in an all-in-one therapeutic product. Results are achieved by combining several surface textures and shapes in order to help users minimize pain from tight trigger point knots. Each user determines the exact amount of pressure or intensity needed for their specific pain. Additionally, the product’s patented ergonomic design is especially effective on the types of muscle pain and repetitive strain injuries–including plantar fasciitis, often experienced by professional dancers and other athletes.
Corp de ballet member, Kelsey Hellebuyck, with the Boston Ballet Company, purchased two Muscle Angels® so that she could work multiple areas, or both sides of her body, simultaneously. “I find it addicting, but it is a great habit to get into to assist with recovery from a long day of dancing.”
Susan Z. Robins, president and founder of Muscle Angels®, is delighted that Muscle Angels® massagers are helping to keep the Boston Ballet Company in fine dancing form. “With the holiday Nutcracker season in full swing now, more than ever, dancers are searching for preventative and therapeutic tools to help reduce muscle pain and tension from over-use,” Robins says. “It is extremely rewarding to know that these esteemed dancers are reaping such benefit from their Muscle Angels® massagers–an invention that came into being as the result of my own personal hand and arm pain. I am especially delighted to know that Muscle Angels® are helping people “Get Back to Living®”- or, in the case of The Boston Ballet Company –“Get Back to…Dancing!”
