The Spiky Ball Massage Roller has three free-spinning studded balls that press into the muscle tissue as you roll it along your arms, legs, shoulders, back, or anywhere you want to use it. The balls are made of hard plastic (PVC), and the studs are rounded at the tip to avoid breaking the skin. As the massager is rolled along the muscle, the studs will extend further into the tissue, providing pressure more deeply than a flat roller with the same amount of force applied.
There are soft foam handles on both ends of the roller for an easy and comfortable grip. The balls and handles cover a strong metal bar that supports light or heavy use, depending on your needs. There are rounded plastic covers on the tips of the bar for safety and security.
When muscles are sore or strained, apply Super Blue Stuff OTC, Super White Stuff OTC, and/or other BLUESPRING pain relief products to the area. Allow a few minutes for the product to be absorbed, then roll the Spiky Ball Massage Roller along the muscles treated. Test with only light pressure applied, then increase the force exerted based on your preference. Bony areas without bulky muscle tissue such as shins, joints, hands and feet may be more sensitive to the studded balls. Adjust the pressure used for your desired comfort level. If needed, apply more BLUESPRING pain relief products after using the roller, as well.
For most areas of the body, you can use both hands to press/pull the massage roller into the muscle and move it evenly along the area. Speed of movement is less important than making sure that the muscle is fully massaged by the spiky balls rolling over the skin. Tilt or adjust the roller to impact all of the muscles/areas needed from the appropriate angles. For arms, hold one handle and press the massager into the muscles of the opposite arm. Consider asking a family member or friend to help you with areas that are difficult to reach or massage effectively. You can lay the massager on the ground and rest your foot, leg, or arm on it, rolling back and forth and using your body weight to apply more pressure than you may be able to do with your hands and arms. If you do this, be cautious to avoid using so much force that it causes pain and do not apply your full weight to the handles as it might bend the inner bar when pushed against the floor, which will not give under pressure. For the back, you can place the massage roller against the back of a chair and lean against it, controlling the amount of pressure to meet your needs.
It is important to relax the muscles you are impacting with the massage roller. Flexed muscles will not receive the full benefit of the Spiky Ball Massage Roller, or any massage. This is different from tense muscles, which may be in that state because of overuse, stress, or injury; flexed muscles are being actively tightened by the nervous system. If using the roller is causing pain or anxiety, reduce the pressure applied so that you feel relaxed and can get the full benefit of this tool.
If you find an area of your muscle that is particularly tight or sore, try holding the spiky balls of the massage roller in that location with continuous pressure for a few minutes, or until you feel the tension release. You may even try moving the muscle around a bit, twisting, flexing and relaxing, or rippling movement (such as raising and lowering the fingers in a wave while applying pressure to the forearm). The spiky balls may be pressing into your muscle, fascia, or other tissue in a way that will cause your body to respond and reset or move to accommodate that pressure. The human body is an amazing thing which can and will respond to the appropriate stimulus!
