If you've been looking for a great back massage with better control. Look no longer. This tool is great for someone who carries stress and tension in the back and shoulders, and/or suffers from headaches. Perfect for helping relax after a long day. Great for those that want and need to be able to massage their muscles without a buddy.
Where Does It Work Best
Work best for self-massaging on hard to reach muscles in the back, shoulders, glutes. Best usage: lean on a wall, sit on a chair, or lay down on a hard surface.
How to Use? (Click to Expand)
Lean on a wall and apply pressure on your muscles with your Tiger Ball 2.6.
Relaxing your muscles during this process will help you massage the “belly” of the muscle.
You are the judge of how much pressure to apply. Strive for a “good hurt”- from 5-7 on a scale of 1-10. “Grimacing” with pressure can be described as that “hurts so good” feeling. It’s not unusual for people to laugh and/or get really serious when applying this type of pressure on a muscle knot. This is usually where we see the best success.
Always follow muscle paths. Massage each muscle group 10-20 seconds. With each pass, gently press deeper into the muscle. Avoid massaging directly over bones.
Tender muscle knots can reduce the range of motion while causing minor aches, discomfort, and muscle fatigue. Knots come in various sizes, like a pinhead, pea, noodle, or small pickle.
Minor discomfort or tenderness may be experienced when passing over muscle knots. To minimize knots, apply 10 seconds of firm, constant, focused strokes, for three sets.
Recurring or stubborn muscle knots often need additional attention. Using Tiger Tail products 2-3 times a day may help speed healing. Over the course of time, muscle knots should get smaller or disappear.
