Description

The life-changing pain relief kit—just lie on the balls!
 

No pain, all gain. Get on the ball. Breathe deeply. And let the weight of your body do the rest. Based on one essential truth—you simply cannot help but get results when you reduce muscle tension—The Miracle Ball Method uses a carefully created program of “un-exercise” to heal an aching back, stiff neck, TMJ, menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, headache, even carpal tunnel syndrome. Head to toe, it’s a breakthrough program of relief.
