Our most popular portable massage stick size. One size fits most. Perfect for personal use, it works great for both upper and lower body massage. Quickly massage any part of the body without getting down on the ground. Firm design—no bending or breaking. Check out our book “Happy Muscles” to help identify muscle knots/trigger points our tools can help with.

The orange grip material is 100% latex-free and natural rubber-free.  They are made from a specially formulated elastomer with zero added latex. We do not use naturally occurring rubber because of latex, which famously is sourced from the rubber tree. Unfortunately, latex causes many allergic reactions so we do not use natural rubber. All of our grips are thermoplastics. There are no accelerators or neoprene in the parts as these are chemicals used in thermoset rubbers.  There are no known allergies to our TPE grip materials; it is often used in place of latex/rubber in hospital settings to eliminate exposure to potential allergens.

As far as the black foam goes, we use an advanced, specially formulated, non-phthalate, thermoplastic compound that has no naturally occurring or added toxins like neoprene, benzothiazoles, carba chemicals, thiurams, etc. The materials we use for our products help ensure our products do not break. We have chosen our materials and suppliers very carefully and screen for toxins through product content tests – and have done so for the orange grips and black foam. Due to the nature of elastomers and thermoplastic compounds, there may be a slight scent that in our experience, dissipates very quickly. We know everyone is different and has different sensitivities, so if the scent you are experiencing bothers you, you may return the product for a full refund.

  • Pre-activity: Warm up muscles and help prepare muscles for activity by rolling each muscle group 15-30 seconds.
  • During activity: Roll to help relieve minor muscle problems that might feel like: aches, soreness and tightness.
  • Post-activity: Roll to help prevent minor aches, soreness and discomfort.
  • 1
    Apply about 10 pounds of pressure over muscles (+/- depending upon your needs) with your Tiger Tail hand-held foam rollers.
  • 2
    Relaxing your muscles during this process will help you massage the “belly” of the muscle.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    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.
  • 5
    Tender muscle knots can reduce range of motion while causing minor aches, discomfort and muscle fatigue. Knots come in various sizes, like a pin head, pea, noodle or small pickle.
  • 6
    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.
  • 7
    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.
