Performing this calf massage will help to combat tight calves and circulation. Vibration plates can also help to speed up recovery after injury by repairing the scar tissue. It is important that you perform this exercise correctly and if you are at all worried about it make sure you check with a medical professional.
Before you start your calf massage place the soft accessory mat onto the vibration plate. Lie down on your back in front of the plate. Position yourself so that your calves fall comfortably onto the vibration plate surface. You should not feel any discomfort or strain at any point during this exercise.
Your toes should be pointing directly upwards, towards the ceiling. Place your arms to your sides with your palms facing upwards. Hold this position and relax your body. There shouldn’t be any tension present in your body. Just enjoy the massage against your calves.
Hold this position for 30 to 90 seconds depending on what feels right for you. Over time you should see your tight calves improve. We are also big fans of a foam roller so if your budget won't stretch to a vibration plate you could try this first.
