Why does The Stick make a perfect gift?

Selection

Here is why The Stick makes the perfect gift:

  1. Personalized – One size does not fit all!  Each person has a different body, therefore there are many different Sticks to meet each persons individualized needs.
  2. Easy to Use – The Stick comes with very easy instructions.  You do not need to go to the floor and you control 100% of the intensity.
  3. Keeps on Giving – The Stick does not wear out.  It is extremely durable and expertly made.
  4. Portable – The recipient of the great gift can take it anywhere!
  5. Prevention/Rehabilitation/Prediction/Identification – That’s right….when used often, The Stick can prevent, rehabilitate, predict and identify soft-tissue injuries.

Give the gift that keeps giving!!

Avoiding Pain When Cycling

10 Apr

I love to get out on my mountain bike and have a great workout.  One of the problems I have is my geographical  location in Alberta, Canada.  I have to admit that I am somewhat of a weekend warrior, so I naturally wait for the snow to melt, than I get very excited for spring!

I truly enjoying x-country mountain biking, so the road really is not my cup of tea.  However, I do go for a few long road/path rides to get my legs (and butt) back into the shape.  Since discovering The Stick I have taken one on many of my rides to help recover and loosen up my sore muscles.  I also love to use a Stick during a break and right after I am done to aid in recovery.

Needless to say, cycling can be amazing or a real pain in the butt, knees, back, wrists and shoulders.  There are many fitting guides out there and you should always listen to experts or go to your local bike shop to get the personal touch.  For starters, I have a guide to help you.  It is called “Proper Bike Fit Can Prevent Pain and Injury“.  The article gives some good, basic information on the following topics:

  • Adjusting the Saddle
  • Handlebar Adjustment
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Foot pain or numbness
  • Hand pain or numbness
  • Saddle sores

You can find the full article -Here-

The most interesting note I have to say is that The Stick and it’s related Speciality Products can help with all of the above conditions except saddle sores.  That is a “sensitive” topic. 

Needless to say The Stick is a great tool every cyclist needs to have in their toolbox.

The Stick is Amazing!!!

21 Sep

ImageIf you are looking for an inexpensive, easy to use tool that will change your physical well being, then look no further! The Stick is a  self- massage device designed to give your muscles all the benefits that you would get from visiting a massage therapist or physiotherapist.  The Stick can be used like a “Toothbrush” for your muscles.  Why wait until you are sick or injured to do something about your physical health?  By using The Stick on a daily basis (like brushing your teeth), you will achieve a higher level of fitness and overall well-being.  It is much more accurate and easier to use than the foam roller!! By rolling over your muscles, your circulation will increase and breakdown trigger points (muscle knots).  As a result The Stick:

  • Improves Strength
  • Increases Flexibility
  • Extends Endurance
  • Accelerates Recovery Time
  • Reduces Muscle Soreness, Stiffness & Pain
  • Prepares Muscle for Rigors of Activity
  • Flushes Muscle from Rigors of Activity
