FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Each wheel size is great for its own reason. We have 3 standard wheels. As you move down in size, there is more pressure on your back. Making our 17cm wheel a great wheel if you are looking for a deep tissue massage. On the other end of the spectrum, the 33cm wheel is a great wheel for stretching and is very gentle on your back. However you need something right in the middle, the 27cm is perfect for you. We highly recommend our 3 wheel pack that gives you a chance to experiment with what you like and develop your own routine!
The Lotus Wheel puts pressure on the muscles surrounding the spine. In doing so, the muscles are stretched and strengthened. The technical term for this is Myofascial Release. Myofascial is a fancy word for muscle, and release is referring to the tension within the muscle.
There are two main differences -- width and pressure.
1. All Lotus Wheels are 12.5cm wide. This width is perfect for putting the pressure where it is needed along the spine and between the shoulder blades. A foam roller just steamrolls the whole area with no real focus.
2. Lotus Wheels come in 3 sizes (diameters) -- 33cm, 27cm and 12.5cm. Due to the size change, the area in contact with the muscles at any given point provides a different amount of pressure.
The Lotus Wheel has a rigid core made of an injection molded ABS plastic and is wrapped in EVA foam.
Due to the rigid core of the Lotus Wheel, each wheel can hold up to 200kg. And if the wheel breaks, we have a 5 year warranty!
