The Beastie was created to overcome the many limitations of conventional massage balls:
Larger balls can be used to massage broad surfaces of your body, but they won’t get into more confined areas (e.g. close to your spine) and are too blunt to dig into the muscle.
Smaller balls, such as golf balls, are relatively inconvenient to use because they need to be elevated on a block to reach many areas of your body.
Balls with very hard surfaces will dig deeper into the muscle, but can also bruise the bone. That makes them less effective than a ball with a more elastic surface.
Inflated balls or ones made of foam can’t provide enough localized force for deep-tissue massage, and don’t hold up well to heavier use.
Balls with fabric or knitted covers absorb sweat, dirt, and bacteria, and are more difficult to clean.
Putting bumps on a ball is a step in the right direction, but shallow bumps only provide superficial stimulation and aren’t effective for deep-tissue.
Taller bumps have the potential to dig deeper into the muscle, but placing them too close together limits their penetration and negates the effect.
Having too few bumps can also be a problem. This type of massage ball doesn’t roll, so it’s difficult to reposition when you’re lying on top of it.
We wanted you to have not just a great massage ball, but the best possible massage ball. So we invested considerable time, attention, and resources in its development. Here are the results of our efforts:
Use of the Detachable Base
|The detachable base is more than just a place to park your Beastie Ball when you’re done using it. It’s a fundamental, patent pending part of the Beastie system, and it provides these distinct benefits:|
