The Tiger Tail home massage tool is a small do-it-yourself foam roller that can be used to roll away the blues from aches and pains, sore muscles, or just a rough day at the office. 

The official Tiger Tail Roller is the final result of founder Spring Faussett’s designs inspired while recovering from knee surgery.Laurie Kain

If you’re like us, the household’s rolling pin lives in a bedside table drawer, where it’s not making cookies. That’s right, it’s the go-to sadomasochistic massage tool. You pull it out reluctantly knowing it’s not going to be fun, but you don’t know what else to do and your partner got tired of your complaining months ago. Roll out the bad pain with the good pain – at least, that’s the idea.

Enter the Tiger Tail Roller. This is what that wooden monster will never be: a professionally designed, ergonomic massage tool that’s meant for the human body.

Designer and lifelong soccer player/athlete Spring Faussett developed her first roller after an ACL surgery kept her from getting on the ground to use a traditional foam roller. If only the foam roller could be smaller, she thought. Her idea was simple: blend a kitchen rolling pin with a traditional foam roller. A few trips to the hardware store and many prototypes later, Tiger Tail was born.
