Why Tiger Tail is different

  • Design, quality, effectiveness and results. Nothing can compare to our industry- leading, award-winning, ergonomic design; the quality and effectiveness of our products; or the results we deliver in muscle care. All products are invented in-house.
  • Exclusive Tiger Tail Gription™. All tools offer deep grip and friction on fascia and muscles to bust out knots and speed recovery.
  • Education. Tiger Tail is on a mission to educate about muscle recovery, enhancing performance, and injury prevention by treating muscular asymmetries, trigger points, fascia lines, DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and more.
  • Cushioned foam covers on all portable foam rollers. Skin and muscle friendly. No hard cold plastic. Spins smoothly. 
  • No bending or breaking out of shape. Firm design provides consistent distribution of pressure. Use as little or as much pressure needed to get the job done.
  • No pinched skin, no pulled out hair, no snagged clothing. No spindles, beads, or gaps. Skin-shed and debris can’t collect.
  • Solid surface. Enables user to massage the entire muscle.
  • Easy to clean. Closed-cell, no rubber or latex, non-porous, non-deteriorating, non-absorbing materials clean easily with soap and water or antibacterial gel or spray.
  • Easy to use. Portable design allows users to quickly massage any part of the body without getting down on the ground. All products allow for targeted application of pressure.
  • Saves landfills. Other foam rollers wear out and get tossed away quickly.
  • Works on all muscle groups: neck, shoulders, arms, upper back, lower back, hamstrings, glutes, quads, calves, shins, feet, and more.
  • Ergonomic lengths and grips. Our tools save thumbs, fingers and hands from fatigue.
  • Take them anywhere. Portable and easy-to-pack.
  • Three year, no-hassle warranty.
  • Made in the USA. Almost 85% off all Tiger Tail products manufactured are made in the USA.

Sometimes size matters. Our longest portable foam roller is perfect for back massage or massaging others. Less flexible? Broader back and shoulders? This is the size for you! Quickly massage any part of the body without getting down on the ground. No hard cold plastics. No spindles or beads. No pinched skin, pulled out hair, or snagged clothing. Works on all muscle groups including neck, shoulders, arms, upper back, lowerback, hamstrings, glutes, quads.
Here’s how to Roll With It

  • Saves fingers
    and hands from fatigue
  • Soft cushy foam cover spins
  • Firm design—
    no bending or breaking
  • 22” long
  • 14” massage surface
  • 13.6 ounces 
  • Portable, easy-pack design
  • Non-slip grip
  • Easy to clean
  • Made in USA.
  • How to Choose:  18" vs. 22"

    If you're wondering how to choose between the 18" and the 22", the only difference in construction is length. The 22" offers four more inches of massage surface. The 18" offers 10" of massage surface while the 22" offers 14" of massage surface. Each handle is 4 inches long. 

    The 22" is best for buddy massage and back massage and for people who are less flexible or larger in size. It works well for personal use but the extra length does make it easier for using on someone else.

    The 18" is our best-selling size and works great for personal massage. The shorter length makes it just a little bit easier to pack into small bags.

TURN SORE MUSCLES INTO HAPPY MUSCLES BY HELPING RELIEVE MUSCLE KNOTS, ACHES, CRAMPING, SPASMS AND STIFFNESS.

Tiger Tail products are recommended and used daily by Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, Athletic Trainers, Personal Trainers, and thousands of people just like you. Use your Tiger Tail every day!
  1. Pre-activity: Warm up muscles and help prepare muscles for activity by rolling each muscle group 15-30 seconds.
  2. During activity: Roll to help relieve cramps, aches, soreness and tightness.
  3. Post-activity: Roll your body roll to help muscle recovery, as well as prevent aches, soreness and discomfort.
1

Apply about 10 pounds of pressure over muscles (+/- depending upon your needs) with your TIGER TAIL products of your choice.

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 pain” 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 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.

HAPPY MUSCLES® Self-Help Guide to Un-Knot Pain

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK

The illustrations in this book show you the location of the muscle knot (the black dot) and area of pain (red). Sometimes the pain is in a different area than the muscle knot, this is called “referred pain”. Rolling the muscle knot will help relieve the pain.
