    Take two-they're small. And they perform miracles. Suffering a career-ending, potentially crippling injury to her back and right leg, a young dancer named Elaine Petrone tried everyone from orthopedists to yogis to turn her pain and prognosis around. Nothing worked-until she healed herself through a unique program of therapy and exercise based around the use of two small, squishy balls. From there she turned her passion into a mission that is helping the thousands of people who visit her classes conquer pain, stress, and injury.

    Now, for relief for sufferers everywhere, comes The Miracle Ball Method, a healing kit containing two miracle balls and a fully illustrated book, all packaged together in an attention-getting clear plastic cylinder. The work itself is simple. Take a sore back: By resting your aching back on the grapefruit-sized balls and letting your body sink into them, you're unworking the muscles that hurt. Pain and tension drain out of the body. Petrone shows how proper breathing (which she demonstrates) works in conjunction with a range of unexercises that call for placing the balls under the back, head, knees, hip, elbow-wherever there's pain-and then resting, rolling, or rotating on them. She points out that relief can come in surprising ways: Lower back pain may be helped by placing the ball under your neck, or a bad knee might be helped by hip work. It's a revolutionary program of relief, from head to toe.

    • yogamama

      I am an instructor for a gentle yoga class. We are using the Miracle Ball during our final relaxation. Those clients with back issues swear by the ball. One client travels extensively and he carries the balls in his luggage for use at the hotel. He informs me that his back is now virtually pain free. Other clients who spend a lot of their day driving also love the Miracle Ball. I highly recommend the Miracle Ball to anyone who may have back issues. The book is useful when starting out but one can quicly modify and adapt to ones own body needs.

    • Answer to Chronic Pain

      This book/kit is a wonderful way to relax your body, breath and mind. Using the balls you learn to place them under your calves (etc..) and release the muscles, joint and free up tension stored within. You begin to realize how much tension we carry in our bodies and get rid of it with the ball workout. After hours of sitting and not stretching or exercising, I found that just 10 minutes on these balls, created intense release and freedom in my entire body. This is a wonderful introduction to using small balls to stretch and relax and exercise. Yamuna Bodyrolling is another great system. Both work extremely well together. However, for the small price, this kit (balls and book) is a winning gift to yourself and your loved ones. They can only thank you for it!
