The Stick is made of a space-age plastic that allows necessary flexibility of the tool and provide maximum compression of the muscles (the Stick does not contain any rubber, latex, or wood). The center rod of the Stick is surrounded by spindles which roll independently over the muscle. The handles provide maximum comfort in the grip. The Stick is a revolutionary device and is highly effective in the treatment of muscle pain and trigger points.
* Prevent & predict muscle injuries
* Dramatically improve strength, flexibility and endurance
* Rapidly prepare muscles for physical activity
* Disperse the effects of lactic acid following activity
* Accelerate muscle recovery dramatically
* Getting to know your own muscles
The Stick has become a standard training device at each level of every sport.
Pre-activity stretching of muscle, without hyper-extending the joint, is a benefit beyond measure in certain sports.
Post-activity use of the Stick enhances and accelerates muscle recovery, which leads to elevation of performance. Professionals report that strength , flexibility, and endurance occur naturally with release of the myofascia and inactivation of offending trigger points.

With proper use, The Stick can last a lifetime. It is also waterproof and can be used in any spa, sauna, or water enclosed area. The Stick may also be placed in the dishwasher for cleaning or sanitizing.
The Stick converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle by performing what Dr. Travell calls stripping massage. In fact, this noted medical physician relates that, “deep stripping massage of the tender spot in the muscle was generally the treatment of choice for muscular rheumatism (myofascial trigger points) long before the turn of this century, and for fibrositis afterwards.” The Stick allows people to self-perform general as well as segmental therapeutic procedures with a high degree of precision. These procedures remove the barriers to peak physical performance. It is the unassisted rolling, stretching, twisting and compressing of the muscle that diffuses barrier trigger points and converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle.
