Yoga Tune Up’s Therapy Balls range is designed to allow you to enjoy targeted self-massage at home and relieve the knots, aches and pains that restrict your movement. The massage balls are made from flexible yet firm rubber that will apply targeted pressure deep into the tissue without nipping or dragging when used around bony areas and joints.
The Alpha Ball is the largest in the Therapy Ball range at 3.5 inches in diameter. Its generous size means it delivers even greater pressure deep through several layers of tissue and it has larger surface area for when you come to rolling it against muscles. It is perfect for large areas of muscle such as the buttocks, hips, thighs and pectorals.
To learn the basics about how you can use your Therapy Balls we recommend you use the Yoga Tune Up Massage Therapy instructional DVD. Although this guides you through routines specifically for the standard Therapy Balls, the principles are the same and you can easily replace them with your Alpha Ball.
Your Alpha Ball will last up to 6 to 12 months depending on how often it is used. It will soften with use, but don’t throw it away when coming to replace it; it’s great to have a few Alpha Balls with different firmness levels. Softer Therapy Balls work brilliantly on soft tissue and bony areas like the wrists, elbows and ankles, whereas newer, firmer balls are great for muscle areas that require deeper pressure.
Differences between the four sizes of Yoga Tune Up Balls
Therapy Balls: These 2.5” grippy, pliable balls have been specifically designed to mimic the thumb of a seasoned massage therapist. They perfectly fit into various spinal processes and can roll their way into gaps between the smaller joints of your body, in areas such as the hands and feet, and delicate tissues of the neck and jaw. Their unique shape and size makes them very trigger point specific.
Therapy Plus Balls: Slightly larger at 3”, these balls are shaped and sized to mimic the effect of a trained therapist’s elbow massaging your troubles away. Their larger surface creates less trigger point specific contact with the body, making them a perfect choice for highly stressed tissues of the body in areas such as the shoulders, front of the chest or the It band (the tendon that runs down the length of the outer thigh).
Alpha Ball: This 3.5” fluffy ball resembles the shape and size of massage therapists fist targeting the larger tissues of the body. This ball is perfect for areas like the lower back, hips, and buttocks; it is ideal for the majority of the tissues in the lower body.
Corgeous Ball: A 9” air-filled, squishy ball’ Corgeous has been created specifically to target the abdomen, chest and front of the pelvis. Its gripped surface allows you to create shear force using your own body weight to unravel stiff fascia, release scar tissue and promote better breathing.
