It is really good at explaining and describing where to place the ball(s) for trigger point pain relief. The method does not reshape your body.

Small book, but comes with balls to use to help stretch and self manipulate your back, legs and thighs out of painfil situations. Great instruction on full deep breathing as well. I have bought it at leadt twice and often recommend to friends and patients

Recommends it for: Anyone health conscious, who does yoga, tai chi, and those with actual back pain
Recommended to Deborah by: Found in a bookstore
I love this very simple to read book and the Miracle Balls. So simple and yet the book explains how to use the balls so that by simply lying down on the floor or a mat you can easily use them to help relieve and/or eliminate much that hurts in your back.

Of course we need exercise, yoga, tai Chi and gentle stretching and have a good diet, hopefully with lots of greens and raw greens as in Green Smoothies - but the Miracle Balls and the book, the Miracle Ball Method gives another easy tool that yo

The technique in the “Miracle Ball Method” is deceptively simple, but it works. The author, an injured dancer who was inspired by multiple bodywork techniques/traditions in a quest to relieve her own pain, shows you how to simply relax and tune into letting your body take the lead in realigning itself. Her secret weapons: deep breathing and two little squishy balls (I know, that doesn’t sound quite right does it?)

This is a tiny book, and the author doesn’t waste any time with a bunch of pseudo-

I actually found and started using the “Portable Miracle Ball Method” before buying the full “Miracle Ball Method.” The little kit comes with one small squishy ball, a small book of exercises, and a mesh bag. The travel version has fewer exercises than in the full “Miracle Ball Method” (and most of them are the same as in the full book), but the results are still excellent; after finally escaping after 5 hours grounded on the tarmac in coach, it was the perfect tool to remove all the kinks in my ...more

Any time I have a stiff neck, lower back pain or seemingly inflexible movement in my back or hips, I use these amazing balls and the exercises Ms. Petrone has developed. To me, this has the feel of being your own chiropractor.

For me, this is a safe, stress free and gradual means of easing stress and pain from too much driving, back strain and other spine or hip issues. It really is effective and helpful.

A great friend of mine gave me this as a gift and it's been such a wonderful tool. I find the instructional book as well as the exercises to be so very simplified, that they are now a regular part of my day. I keep a ball near my bed, near my desk chair and one in the car.

4 stars for the instructional book
5 stars for the miracle balls

Seems a little gimmicky, but worth a try. I started with the elbow on the ball sequence, and my upper back tightness and headache both feel better.

Honestly, I just need to look at this book every single day and make sure I am stretching and massaging things. 'Kicking myself in the hiney' to remind myself how much it helps! ...more

This book isn't quite working for me right now. I'm putting it aside and will try it again later.
