Keep your posture in check with the TPR.
If you sit for long periods of time, postural support is key. By using the TPR as a back rest, your back has extra support, which can help reduce the tension that build ups with prolonged sitting.
The TPR was designed with the understanding that each individual has variations in their body size and type. By changing the positioning of the body while using the TPR, it allows the user to target specific areas to get the maximum benefits. Although you don't have to be a specific height to use the TPR, it is most effective for users between the height range of 5'0" and 6'6". The TPR is also designed to be durable with a max weight capacity of 300 lbs.
We recommend sitting at the base of the product and laying down slowly by walking your hands back. The two top knobs of the TPR are supposed to fit in the suboccipital region of the skull.
We recommend rolling off of the side via a "log roll technique." The log roll technique maintains the alignment of the spine while turning. Imaging a rolling log. In this case, you are the log.
We recommend using the Trigger Point Rocker up to 15 minutes at a time. We have found the best time to benefit ratio is 10 minutes.
TPR users have reported relief from both the standard firmness and heavy firmness. However, we recommend ordering based upon your personal preferences and based upon how aggravated your muscle tissue is. The rule of thumb that we use is, if the tissue is very aggravated (>6/10 on the pain scale) we would recommend going with the standard firmness as the heavy firmness will be too intense.
It can be painful when trying to address trigger points and those stubborn knots that we all struggle with. But after the first few minutes of using the TPR, the pain turns into a feeling of "release" as reported by our testers.
