Tiger Tail Massager
It typically takes 10-20 rolls over the muscle to warm up healthy muscle tissue. This equates to working each muscle area for about 10-20 seconds. To be most effective, it works best to progressively press harder on the muscle area with each roll. Massage therapists refer to tender bumps or knots in the muscle as "trigger points." The presence of trigger points often indicate weak, stiff and sore muscles which can hinder athletic performance because they easily tire and often hurt. When the Tiger Tail passes over a "trigger point" discomfort or pain may be experienced; however, most people find this feeling to feel good - especially when the Tiger Tail assists the muscle in releasing the "cramp". Chronic trigger points often need additional attention. Slowly and gradually work the Tiger Tail deeper into the muscle to work out the trigger point. Using the Tiger Tail several times daily may be necessary. Over the course of time, trigger points should lessen in severity. Before beginning any type of therapy or treatment, seek the advice of a physician.

Effective for massaging

Terrific for massaging hamstrings, calves, and shins to prevent problems with doing sprints.

This product makes it easier to roll out your calves, IT Bands, and Hip Flexors with more ease and precision than a Foam Roller and you have better control over the amount of pressure you're applying
Great addition for therapy

I recently had hip surgery and was doing PT during recovery. This tool was essential for helping my muscle recovery. It goes with me everywhere to roll out any sore spots that arise. Use it before and after workouts for increased blood flow to eliminate soreness.

I use the Tiger Tail instead of the Stick with patients/clients who are a bit more sensitive with STM. Softer foam seems easier to allow muscles to relax over harder rollers.
