Where exceptional materials underpin timeless design.
Created for those who want to improve how they move and feel – with a focus on functionality, versatility, sustainability, & elegance.
Makarlu Lotus was inspired by the beauty and elegance of the blossoming lotus flower and seed pod. The distinctive surface contours, textures, and sizes of the 3 nesting domes and rocker base provide just the right amount of pressure to the skin, fascia and muscles.
Thoughtfully designed to accommodate a wide range of needs, Makarlu Lotus is for those who want to improve how they move and feel. Whether for specific rehabilitation goals, training of highly conditioned performers and athletes, or general movement and exercise – Makarlu Lotus helps to release, relax, stretch, strengthen, mobilise and move the whole body – from head to feet and anywhere in between.
Like a Matryoshka doll, the 3 Nesting Domes and Rocker Base of Makarlu Lotus fit snugly together. They can be used individually, or in combination with each other in a multitude of configurations.
Soft to touch and latex free, Makarlu Lotus domes are made from TPE, a premium quality elastomeric material that’s often used for watch and fitness wrist bands. Read more about the exceptional materials of Makarlu Lotus.
Don’t just use Makarlu Lotus on the floor – magnetic attraction lets you also use the domes vertically by sticking them to your fridge, filing cabinet, car, poles, and more.
Using the Lotus domes vertically and ‘hands-free’ makes self massage and gentle mobilisation of stiff muscles and joints that much easier – great for relieving hard to reach niggles and tight points in the back, neck, shoulders, and glutes.
This feature is also useful for moderating pressure to suit individual preference, and can benefit those who are unable to get up and down from the floor easily. Position a dome or combination of domes exactly where needed, then fine-tune the pressure by gradually leaning or pushing harder – something that can be more difficult to control when lying on the floor on top of massage balls, golf balls, tennis balls, foam rollers, etc.
Magnets may interfere with pacemakers when placed in close proximity. Anyone with a pacemaker should not use Makarlu Lotus until approved by their cardiologist.
The 3 Nesting Domes design feature lets you vary the firmness of your Makarlu Lotus set, by adding or removing inner domes.
A range of firmnesses are useful to accommodate individual needs, or to use on different areas of the body. When this variable firmness is combined with the ability to use vertically, the possibilities for Makarlu Lotus grows.

Makarlu Lotus comes with a stylishly embroidered drawstring carry bag featuring two inner pockets. There’s one pocket for each Makarlu Lotus, or travel with a single set and use the other pocket for your possessions.
Our Makarlu Lotus bags were inspired by the elegant simplicity of ‘kinchaku’, a traditional Japanese drawstring carry bag or pouch. Kinchaku is a small bag worn like a purse or handbag, typically use for carrying around personal possessions like money, lucky charms, medicines and cosmetics. ‘Kin’ means fabric and ‘Chaku’ means to put on.
