What sets us apart?
Quite simply, we want to teach you why your muscles hurt and where the source of the pain is coming from. Our competitors only want to teach you “how to roll” – and quite frankly, anyone can do that. Only we do what we do. Our founder, Spring Faussett, always says, “Muscles talk. I listen.” Which means when she comes up with a new product, she pays attention with striking detail on how to design the product so it works best with the body, muscles, fascia and your hands.
Our passion for helping people with their pain is deeply rooted in our culture at Tiger Tail USA. In fact, we wrote “the book” on how to get out of pain—literally. Spring has many “self-inflicted” pain stories – like most of us do. Some of Spring’s pain problems were so tricky, the only way she got out of her own pain was to do her own research and go on (what felt like) a never-ending quest to find answers and solutions. The result was a book she co-authored, “Happy Muscles: Self-Help Guide to Un-Knot Muscle Pain.” This book helps condense thousands of pages of research and knowledge into a simple to read, 84-page “picture book” that simplifies all the hard stuff into a version that gives you all the good stuff, to put you on a fast-track path (hopefully) filled with clues on how to get out of pain faster.
One of the key ingredients in every product Spring designs and brings to market is what we call Gription. We define Gription as the deep grip and friction on fascia and muscles that works hard to bust out knots and sore muscles. All of our tools help deliver Gription on the muscle by the way the tools dig into the muscle, grip the skin, muscle and fascia and move the tissues together and away from each other.
All of our Tiger Tail tools quickly and comfortably massage any part of the body, most without having to get on the ground. All of our tools have firm, commercially built designs with no bending or breaking. This type of design allows you to use as little or as much pressure to get the job done. All of our surfaces are skin and muscle friendly. Each of our tools offer smooth, superior handling. No hard, cold plastics, spindles, or beads. No pinched skin, pulled hair, or snagged clothing. Each are super easy to clean. No matter what hurts, we have the tool that will work on the muscle group you need help with: neck, shoulders, arms, upper back, lower back, hamstrings, glutes, quads, calves, shins, feet, psoas and more.
