"I have been given a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion and review"
Staying in shape and keeping active can be very healthy for the body, but sometimes all that working out, everyday labor of chores, and even considering the type of job you do day in and day out, can be taxing on the body. It really doesn't matter if it's a sit-down all day job or lifting and moving most of the day, all of the body will feel the pain, especially in the muscles. So Everyone could use some sort of way to relax and ease pain from the overworked and tense muscles.
The Miracle Ball Method by Elaine Petrone is something I feel had exactly what I wanted when I need to relieve the stress and kinks throughout the body. Working into each muscle and providing relief instantly! These balls are truly amazing! I consider the feel and pressure when under the body, to be like an unbreakable balloon. It's very relaxing, soft, and gentle to the touch and when used on the muscles.
I've actually had tried many massaging balls in the past and never realized I didn't have to displease my body with ones so hard like a rock, ones with pointy pieces that feel like torture, or others which have no effect and are basically so deflated without any support. In the long run, all these types of balls either end up being put out of sight, tossed into the garbage, or given to another if they can find use. However, the feel of these balls makes me rethink my opinion on massaging balls. These really made a difference in my life, since it's being used every day, and I'm gaining so much relief and feeling better on a daily basis.
There was one aspect of the balls that I really enjoy is that it's a set of two. Allowing not one ball to work one side of the body, but both working on each side at the same time. In addition, the size of these two is the right size to work even larger and small parts of the body. They fit easily in the small curves and bends of the body. One more fun little thing the author mentions is that these will last, for years! They are easy to clean, can be inflated or deflated as much as you need them to be and the material is long-lasting, safe, and smooth.
Now for the set to be complete, the book is one part that really aids in putting these balls into good use. The guide in the book explains so much about caring and using the balls. Such as keeping them in perfect, ready shape with the right pressure and comfort for each individual body. Especially, since the pressure can be easily adjusted with a bike pump. Another purpose of the book is to help provide guidance with all types of pain-relieving, ball massaging workouts inside. Each of the movements inside is labeled to help bring relief to certain parts of the body, which need relief.
In my opinion, the book is made really nice and easy to understand. The steps are illustrated to help you get through each step correctly. This is one thing that a set of balls, by themselves won't provide you and might leave you clueless on using massage balls correctly and how many areas of the body, which they can be used on to work out the tension. Honestly, after going through the pages, there are so many positions that these balls can target. Allowing the body to get attention where the body normally never gets the relief it deserves.
Finally, I like to say that ever since I've used The Miracle Ball Method and followed the steps completely, each area that I've needed relief has been feeling better. Now I just feel I have the ability to continue moving and not let muscle tension or pain get in the way. I use them on a daily bases as if it's part of my daily routine. It is an excellent way for my body to get relief at the end of the day and feel comfort from the uneased tension that is built-up from the entire day. By the way, they travel very well and are easy to use anywhere you go!
