They did not come with instructions, only linking me to their website, which also didn't have any instructions. Thanks to Google, I found some images and YouTube videos on how to use them.
I tried them out on my low back and also on my hips and feet. They are amazing!! Here are some tips for you:
- When you use them on your lower back, use both of them, equal distances on each side of your spine. It may hurt a bit, but once you relax it will feel better. Also, lifting my legs off the floor helped.
- Be careful when using them for your hips, hip flexors, IT band... as it can hurt!! in a sort of masochistic way of "hurting so good" -- try to be gentle, and remember to RELAX and breath. Hold it there for a bit as you feel the knots releasing
- The areas that you used them on will probably be tender (but relaxed!) the next day. Like any type of soft tissue release I recommend drinking a lot of water after use.
- This is pure heaven when you use them on your feet. I can see this working very well for plantar fasciitis and cramping feet. I have something wrong with my feet -- they cramp severely when I try to point my toes. I also have problems with fallen arches. If you start off slowly, then put more weight on your feet, it just is like a reflexology massage!
