You will need about 4 feet of open wall space and a yoga or exercise mat. A block is helpful for many techniques as well.
No. Wellround balls are naturally powered, harnessing the forces of gravity and you.
Wellround balls are the ideal size, texture and density for the most effective and versatile deep tissue massage for everybody and every body part. Foam rolling is better than nothing, but they have their limitations. Foam rollers can only address large areas of the body with broad, general and a single body-weight-dependent pressure. They also don’t fit so well in a crossbody or backpack. Wellround compresses, stretches, and decompresses tissues from the biggest and broadest to the tiniest trigger points creating a deeper, better release. Wellround is designed for use on the floor as well as against the wall or with your own hands, allowing you to choose the postures and pressures that work best for you. Versatility and customization are key. We include four balls in two different sizes with their pairing totes to allow for massage of your every part — from the largest to the tiniest, and at every depth and pressure.
The balls in Wellround kits are the ideal balance of soft and firm, designed to safely provide maximum benefits for your tissues and joints. These self-massage tools are grippy-pliable-optimally dense rubber, perfectly pushing through layers of skin and muscle to massage deeply into your tight spots and provide targeted trigger point release. They also have enough give to avoid triggering fear and further contraction and damaging bony prominences and nerves. The balls’ grippy texture also creates optimal shear against skin to clear superficial fascial adhesions and awaken nerve endings that benefit your nervous system. Tennis balls are too hard, then squish flat, missing the ideal mid-point of firm yet soft. Under friction, they rug burn skin and slip on clothing. Tennis balls are too large for trigger point release and too small for broad pressure techniques. Two tennis balls in a sock or taped together present the same obstacles as a single tennis balls detailed above. Lacrosse balls are too hard, which signals our bodies’ defense mechanisms, causing us to contract and tighten up instead of relaxing and releasing. They are also dangerous and can harm bony prominences and damage nerves. Because of their hardness, most Wellround techniques are not tolerable or safe to do with a lacrosse ball. They also lack versatility.

Like your favorite pair of jeans, it depends on how often and how hard you use them. Most folks who use Wellround for about two hours a week will need to replace their balls in 1-1.5 years.
