YogaMad Spiky Massage Ball 9cm
Much too hard
Like the other reviewers, I found this far too tough. The sales lady commented when I returned it, that it's supposed to be hard, and painful, as that signifies tightness. My issue is more with the fact that the description of the product doesn't say that the ball is solid. I thought other reviewers were over exaggerating and that at least the spokes might be bendy, but no, it may as well be made of wood or glass or metal. If you have experience using these then perhaps you will already know this! But as a newbie I didn't. Oops!

I love my spiky ball!
I love my spiky ball and use it multiple times a day on my hamstrings and glutes. I sit on my ball and use it to pressure point very tense or tight areas. It has really made a difference and it is small enough that I carry it my purse where ever I go.

What a relief! I've used this little ball to help ease away aches and pains in my foot, calf muscle and upper leg. I've also used this between the wall and my upper back to ease stiffness between my shoulder blades.

Too hard and sharp
I use spiky balls in our Pilates class regularly so I thought it's be good to try it at home but these are uncomfortable too hard and sharp. Even with practice, they didn't soften.
What a shame. First SB product I've ever been disappointed in.

My physiotherapist recommended a spiky massage ball to help release my gluteal muscles as I have piriformis syndrome. This looks brutal but it is actually really effective at reliving the pain.

This massage ball is ideal for helping to release my piriformis muscle which I have had problems with for years. It also feels great over the rest of my legs and body after a good yoga practice... Love just rolling it under my feet too!

a bit too harsh for my liking - would have preferred it if the spikes were a bit softer.

Excellent little massage ball
I use this under my soles mostly and I generally feel much better very soon after using it. I've tried using tennis ball under my soles as well but they're not as effective as this massage ball! Just need to try it out on my back at some point now.

Great product, but you had it advertised on your website as a nine inch ball, not a 9 cms ball - so I was obviously disappointed with the size when it arrived!

Great little massage ball
This is great value. I use it on the soles of my feet and I can feel the difference almost instantly. It is also brilliant to use against a wall and rub the tight muscles in my upper back/shoulders. I would otherwise have no way of loosening these muscles off without a sports massage.
