For more precise muscle tightness release

We all know that pain is a signal of something being wrong. That includes muscle pain and soreness and aching joints when we move. Unfortunately most of us react to that signal in the worse way possible. Instead of finding out what is wrong and fixing it, we wait and hope that it magically goes away. Well, it does not.

Your body should be functional and free of pain, free of limits.

What if we told you that the most common cause of these disabling aches and pains are stiff, tight muscles and myofascial dysfunctions and that there was an effective way to treat them at home by yourself? We invented HighBaller to do just that by:

  • opening tight muscles and adnate tissues
  • improving mobility and flexibility to allow correct joint and postural alignment
  • boosting metabolism in muscles and reducing edema
  • improving movement economy
  • preventing injuries and relieving pain

HighBaller is the only twin-ball massager with width adjustable, angled massage balls used for self-myofascial release (SMR) and to loosen up stiff, tight muscles. The adjustable width and angled balls allow HighBaller to be used anywhere on the body in a way no other self-massage tool is able to. HighBaller has an immediate pain relieving effect by quieting down pain receptors and in the long term, it will help you release your stiff, tight muscles to make your everyday life enjoyable again.

Do not let pain hold you back   

Eighty percent of adults suffer from back pain sooner or later in their life. In most cases it is the type of pain that you live with each and every day. Neck and shoulder problems are also very common as approximately fifty percent of us suffer from neck and shoulder pain. It is also alarming that ever younger people are starting to show symptoms of back, neck and shoulder problems. Typical lower body problems including knee pain, shin splints, tight hip flexors and glutes are also often caused by tight muscles and poor mobility.

Poor flexibility and tight muscles are largely to blame for these types of pains and postural problems. 

If you want to stay healthy, live an active lifestyle, and want to prevent these types of problems from manifesting in the first place, then you will love HighBaller. HighBaller allows you to enjoy life by relieving tension and pain in the muscles and trigger points. 

A few 5-minute sessions a week with HighBaller is enough to:

  • relieve pain
  • take care of your muscles
  • enhance performance and enjoyment of your sport/activity
  • recover faster from activities

Together, we can make you and HighBaller come alive.

Use the wide setting to massage larger muscles like the glutes.

How to be pain free?

If you want to be healthy and pain free, you need to move in ways that improve all aspects of physical conditioning. And you need to do it regularly. Not just once a week. This also applies to the physical qualities that you can improve with the HighBaller. The qualities that play a big part in keeping us healthy and pain free.

Where as pain is a signal of something being wrong, good posture is a signal of something being very right. Our body works as one unit and posture is related to everything within that unit. Having good posture says that your spine and joints are correctly aligned and that you do not have muscle imbalances. With good posture you can also move in correct movement patterns in the activity of your choosing to improve the health of your respiratory and circulatory systems and to strengthen your skeletal muscles. To live life to the fullest without pain. That is what we want to give to you.

The only width adjustable twin-ball massager with angled massage balls

HighBaller is patented and trademark pending.

What is a HighBaller?

HighBaller has two massage balls that rotate on top of a width adjustable stand. The stand makes HighBaller comfortable to use and keeps the massage balls in the correct place. The underside of the stand is made from non-slip material to keep the stand in place.

The massage balls are firm and their material creates enough friction against the skin to prevent the massaged body part from slipping for a more precise and effective form of muscle care. The round shape makes it possible to manipulate the muscle with deep massage and target small, specific areas. The twin-ball configuration offers the possibility to treat two problematic areas at the same time. The width adjustment makes it possible to treat problem areas anywhere on the body.

How does it work?

HighBaller is easy to use and you will be using techniques that come from massage and trigger point therapy.

Start by adjusting the width of the balls. Wider for larger muscles like the glutes, narrower for smaller muscles like the triceps.

 Release the trigger

HighBaller is used to loosen up stiff, tight muscles. One aspect of releasing this tightness is trigger point therapy. Trigger points are hyperirritable areas of skeletal muscle and of the fascia that surrounds skeletal muscle. They are like small pebbles formed by muscle fibers that are in a permanent state of contraction and form a “knot” in the surrounding fascia. Active trigger points cause pain both in resting and under stress. They can also cause vertigo and balance problems and appear as muscle imbalances and muscle stiffness. 

Examples of trigger points. HighBaller comes with the full Trigger Point Map.
Examples of trigger points. HighBaller comes with the full Trigger Point Map.

HighBaller comes with its very own “Trigger Point Map" which shows you basic information on trigger point locations and how Highballer can help. The map shows you 30 potential problem areas and their referred pain areas. That way you can localize your problematic spot, find the trigger point and treat them.

Techniques

There are two techniques that you can do with HighBaller, called "rolling" and "push". With rolling you will get a more general soft tissue release, like after a nice massage. Push is used for specific trigger point release.

Rolling

Place a tight feeling muscle on the balls and adjust the width of the balls to suit the tight area. Slowly start to roll the balls across the length or width of the muscle. You can either use small movements to focus more on a specific area or roll across the full length of the muscle with calm, long movements. If you start to tense up and forget to breath, you are using too much pressure. Increase pressure when rolling towards the heart to direct venous and lymphatic flow back towards it and decrease pressure when rolling away from the heart and to not cause any undue pressure on the closed valves in the veins.

Push

If you find a particularly painful spot (trigger point) while rolling, pause at that spot and start applying pressure. It is going to hurt but try to stay relaxed and keep breathing. Maintain pressure for 15-30 seconds and if the pain starts to fade away, increase pressure until it feels slightly painful again. Continue like this for up to 3 minutes. If the pain persists after three minutes, the area needs to be treated several times over a longer period.

Our vision

As athletes, initially we wanted to create ergonomic muscle care products for ourselves to help us perform better and recover faster. After having the prototypes tested by a variety of people, we realized that we were creating something that could help anyone who suffered from skeletal muscle and fascial dysfunction related pain.

Living an active lifestyle can put stress on your body and now is the time to release that stress. We want to make everyday life more enjoyable and pain free by sharing this product with you. We truly believe that we have created another unique product to complement our first product the HighRoller. 

Together these products will help us and you live free of unnecessary aches and pains and show that elevating muscle care products make a difference.

Why we need your help? 

We truly believe our product can help people deal with everyday pain and is a great way to take care of your muscles. With your help, we can produce HighBaller quicker and more efficiently. Once you have received our product we are certain you are going to love it and know that you will want to tell others about it.

HighRoller - Sport product of the year

In 2015 we launched our first product called HighRoller. It is an innovative foam roller that spins around an axle on a height adjustable stand. The stand lets you foam roll in ergonomic and more effective positions by allowing you to relax while rolling and by focusing all the pressure on the treated muscle.

HighRoller quickly gained popularity in Finland, receiving the award for best sport product of the year in 2015.

In 2017 HighRoller has distributors in Scandinavia, Germany, U.K, U.S and Japan.

Risks and challenges

We have tested several materials and techniques over time to create the product to suit the needs of our customers. We have also received feedback from several users of prototype 1.0 and 2.0 and now we can confidently say that we have designed the best possible product for you.

With our network we can ensure a world wide delivery to our products.
We anticipate being able to ship orders in November 2017
but if the amount of orders exceed our expectations, it might take slightly longer to fulfill the orders.
