So, I got mine a couple of weeks ago – it is a game changer - completely lives up to the hype! Thanks, you guys
I ordered three for three of my students who really love to do bodywork and grooming, they’ve reported back great results, and it has helped my mare tremendously in many subtle ways. She is looser under saddle, more freely forward – and her neck is getting some nice pops, even more than after all the bodywork I already do. Her hamstrings are much softer, shoulder is freer, she really wants to stretch her legs when I do my usual stretches, and has a greater range of motion – I’ve even worked on her pecs.
The one downside is that after I use it, my deltoids are burning – and with a repetitive motion, my hand arthritis does flare up. I’ve been trying to use it on myself, but it’s a little big - so I plan to order the human version. Right now it goes back-and-forth (and shares duties) between home and barn, lol! the YouTube tutorials shared on this thread have been hugely helpful as well. Who would think such a little device would have such a big impact?
Kind of hard to use it on myself so I’ve had my husband go over my delts with it several times – and I can’t figure out how to use it on my feet?? I have very tight muscles everywhere, and since I don’t have a lot of body fat I have to use it more gently to avoid bruising myself, but I’m looking forward to getting the human version.
Gotta love COTH
