That’s where a massage ball like the Therabody Wave Solo comes in and it isn't your average massage tool. This compact yet powerful device is engineered to deliver focused, pinpoint pressure to areas of the body that standard recovery tools struggle to reach. Designed to mimic the human thumb, the Wave Solo effectively releases deep muscle tension and breaks up knots.

These levels cater to various needs in your fitness journey, ranging from warming up muscles pre-workout to relaxing them post-exercise, and even deep recovery on rest days.
