During muscle recovery, athletes typically alternate between using a roller to apply different pressure levels to muscles and icing sore areas. The combination of applying pressure and icing promotes recovery while relieving muscle sensitivity. During post-workout self-massage sessions, reaching while applying the right amount of pressure to sore muscles alone can be a challenge.


In collaboration with Loft, Sharper Image designed the Ice Therapy Massage Ball featuring a suction wall mount and liquid-cool core. The versatile muscle massager relieves tension while alleviating pain. The compact ball offers gentle relief, while the wall mount allows for added pressure in hard-to-reach areas. This comprehensive recovery tool provides targeted muscle relief and the calming effects of cold therapy, optimizing post-workout recovery and promoting muscle relaxation.


Experience the rejuvenating benefits of simultaneously massaging and applying a refreshing chill to muscles. Using the roller on specific areas can effectively work out knots, alleviate tension, and provide additional therapeutic benefits. Enhance post-workout recovery by placing the roller in the freezer for a few hours to cool before use. The soothing, cooling action can provide extended relief after an intense workout.
