Rolling massages are quite relaxing and beneficial too. Studies have proven that rolling, like foam rolling, helps improve blood circulation, which in turn helps relieve the tension and stiffness in the tissues. These types of massages reduce muscle soreness and improve your performance.
We have reviewed a number of rolling sticks and massagers such as RAD Roller Rad Helix Myofascial Release Tool, 5BILLION Peanut Massage Ball, Epitomie Fitness VIBRA Vibrating Foam Roller, Vertiball Wall Massager, etc.
A major problem with these tools and most other rolling massage tools is that you need to use your bodyweight to control the intensity of the massage you want.
This is fine if you want to work on the muscles of your posterior body. But, if you want to massage the front muscles of your legs or the muscles of your hands, applying your bodyweight pressure could be quite uncomfortable.
Also, there is no way you can use these tools to massage the muscles that run along the sides of your hands and legs.
LittleMum massage roller is different.
It has two massage rollers connected with the help of a spring and a clamp. The spring is adjustable so you can massage your thighs as well as your arms alike. By adjusting the spring, you will be able to adjust the intensity of your massage. You don’t need to use your bodyweight or pressure to massage the muscles. The rollers and springs do that for you, making it much easier and faster.
Another thing you will love about it is that the rollers can be used to massage almost all muscles of your legs and arms, even the side muscles.
Sounds interesting, isn’t it? In this article, we will provide you with a detailed review of the LittleMum massage roller so you can decide if it is worth your money or not.

Now on to our full review.
It is pretty easy to use
As we mentioned above, if you want to use standard foam rollers, you will have to lie down on them. This works if you want to massage your legs and back but you may not be able to massage your arms and forearms.
Also, it is really difficult to adjust the intensity of your massage because it is dependent on your body’s weight. So, basically, you will be doing a lot of work.
LittleMum has made things much easier by coming up with a set of connected foam rollers that you can easily roll around your legs and hands. You don’t need to apply any pressure other than making the massager roll on your body. The spring mechanism will do all the hard work.
The plastic hands have a grippy texture that helps you get a good grip even with sweaty hands, so you can use it while sitting, standing, or walking.
And, it is effective too!
Finding a tool that works for you is not easy. Although there are literally hundreds of options to choose from, very often, even the most popular tools fail to address the specific needs of the users. That's why we suggest you keep trying various products until you find the one that best suits your needs.
If you have tried a couple of rolling massagers and haven’t really enjoyed them, you should try this one. Although it’s a fairly new product, buyers have concluded that the LittleMum Massage roller is much better and much more effective than most of the foam rollers they have tried. It makes you feel as if you are being massaged by a professional therapist.
LittleMum Massager roller is exclusively meant for massaging the legs and arm muscles
It is not an all-in-one massage tool like Exogun Massage Gun, E-WIN Massage Gun, or the Homech Massage Gun. This massager is specially designed for relaxing the painful calves and forearms. And, it is really good at it.
Massage guns offer percussion therapy and they have various massage heads that can help you target almost all parts of your body. They are great at what they do but a rolling massage is much more relaxing than a percussion massage.
If you are into a profession where you are more prone to tension in legs/arms or if you generally like to roll your muscles after workouts, the LittleMum massage roller should be a better option for you.
LittleMum massager may not help you target the exact trigger points
It is basically a massage roller meant for helping you get rid of muscle tightness after a long day at work or after intense training sessions.
As mentioned above, it was originally designed to get relief from repetitive strain injuries such as Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, etc. But, with time people started to realize that it can also be used for relaxing your muscles as a part of post-workout recovery.
LittleMum Massager doesn’t have any pointy ends that can help you reach the trigger points hidden deep beneath the muscles. The spiky add-ons and the triple-head add-ons may help but if you are looking for trigger point massage, you may want to go with better options like KOA Elite Fascia Massage Tool, Thera Cane Massager, LOCKEROOM Pocket Physio MAX, or Davinci Tool.
We are not sure how long the spring mechanism will last
Don’t get us wrong. The spring is really thick and heavy-duty.
But, springs tend to lose their elasticity with time and use and that’s why we don't know how long it will last.
LittleMum massager roller is a fairly new product unlike Theragun massage guns and Mini Thergun which have been around for decades now. Plus, it is manufactured and sold by an Australian company. It is yet to gain some popularity in the US market.
What we mean to say here is that we don’t have enough buyers’ reviews and feedback that we can evaluate and conclude about the durability of the LittleMum massager roller. But, after using it for a few weeks, we guess it could last for a couple of years before the spring mechanism starts to fail. And, that's more than enough!
We are giving this a rating of 4.8 out of 5.0.
LittleMum massager roller is an excellent product for people who want to loosen up their muscles at the end of the day or after their workouts. We highly recommend it but do not hesitate to compare it with Mobo Max massage stick, which can be used both for rolling as well as trigger point therapy. However, keep in mind that Mobo Max massager is suitable only for people who want intense massages.
