The ctm band
Why Are We Different?
Studies show that myofascial release needs three things to work: compression, tension, and movement into a muscle. Think about this: a foam roller/stick roller/lacrosse ball combines tension and movement, but no compression. A floss band combines compression and movement, but no tension. The CTM Band is the first to combine all three.
I’ve been foam rolling for years, and I’ve used other methods of self-myofascial release, but the CTM band is up there as one of the most effective methods I’ve used. As an avid recreational runner and cyclist, my legs are a big concern. With the band, I can pinpoint where I want the pressure, and I can also dial in the amount of pressure I want to apply with relative ease. And unlike a foam roller, it allows you to keep the pressure applied while working the muscle through its full range of motion. This product is definitely worthy of your attention.
This product is perfect for my daily warm up, gets all the knots and tight muscles ready to roll! Love everything about this band
Been ultra running for 8 years and I’m not getting any younger(lol) For the past 2 years(plus) I’ve been dealing with muscle tightness and pain in my left leg. Foam rollers, and T ball balls can only do so much. Figured I’d give the CTM band I try, what did I have to lose. Well that tightness and soreness is what I had to lose! I’ve done more good on my overly tight, sticky muscles/fascia in the last three weeks using the ctm band daily then using all my other recovery tools combined in the last two years! So glad I finally ordered one! Plus you can’t beat the price! Genius piece of recovery kit!
I'll admit it, I'm a running addict! But, when I want to get a lot of miles in, my legs and muscles won't let me. I've tried foam rolling, hours of stretching, and using stick rollers, but nothing works as great as a CTM Band to help eliviate sore muscles, keep them loose, and eliminate lactic acid in the muscles. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a new way to help heal sore muscles without taking days off of their workout schedule to rest or heal.
I have one of each size and use them both regularly on myself and my athletes for tight muscles and for warm-up before exercise
The CTM Band has been really helping my tight hamstring! Thanks Dr. Bowling.
So I've been using floss bands for years and wrapping them over golf balls/lacrosse balls which was always really annoying to do. Also keeping the ball in the exact location I wanted it to be in was also a pain at times. Enter the CTM Band and that issue is gone. I can not only get the ball right where I want it, I can have up to 4 in different locations! My flossing outcomes with clients have been much better since incorporating the CTM Band into my arsenal and I plan on using it for a very long time!
Foam rollers, massagers, The Stick, I have all kinds of recovery tools. None of them have alleviated my tight calves like the CTM Band. Runners should absolutely have this in their recovery tool kit. Price to efficacy is unbelievable.
The bands are great! We work with dancer with tight calves and quads. It's a quick and effective tool to use so they can get instant relief .
I use it on myself and on the college athletes I work with for both muscle soreness and tightness as well as for warm up before workouts!! It’s great!!
This tool has been greatly helpful for both my husband and myself in dealing with IT Band issues that stretching and foam rolling alone did not solve. Highly recommend that you try it out!
I bought this some weeks ago, and since I am from Brasil, my friend brought to me in the christmas, i already used and REALLY like the outcome. I only used the small one in my calf, in the upper lateral side, almost in the m. soleus. I will use this week in my m. quadriceps, the larger one and see what will happen. Thank you very much for your products and willing to improve the way people think and use their equipments and muscles. Have a good 2019!
I have used and recommended compression/mobility bands in my practice for several years now. I'm a fan particularly for self treatment protocols. The CTM band provides a a very useful renovation in an already helpful product. The CTM band allows for a greater diversity of use and works particularly well for tack and floss mobilization. I have found great success in using it for calf, quad, hamstring and forearm related issues. The CTM band allows a person to be more precise with his or her self mobilizations and gives a person a lot more options for self treatment than the traditional compress/mobility band. Great product!
The CTM band is great for athletes who are often on the road. I use it all the time at home for my calves and hamstrings, but when traveling, it's easier to throw this in the bag than a foam roller! Well-made, thoughtful product.
My son has chronic tightness from running competitive high school XC and this band is the most useful tool at managing his symptoms and pain. Its easy to use, is self directed and provides deep tissue relief that makes a daily difference. Cant say enough about how this band has helped!!!
I had trouble with a right calf muscle being tight after each run the CTM band has really been helpful....It has worked the tightness out of my calf muscle....I use before and after my runs.
I do lots of running and biking,from time to time I have patellafemoris inflammation,with Ctm band on 2 mnts plus stretch and move my pain/inflammation was reduced and now I’m fine. I recommend Ctm band and thank you.
I'm a stubborn runner who won't lay off. I love a good recovery too and this one meets all the marks. It's easy to use, it offers very timely relief. Sometimes I use it before a run, but love to use it a few hours after a hard effort. It really loosens everything back up. It's fantastic
I battled plantar fasciitis for about 15 months. I got new shoes, bought expensive inserts, stretched and foam rolled. I’m sure all of that helped, but within a few weeks after trying the CTM Band, I was suddenly without pain for the first time in well over a year and it’s still gone 3 months later. Thank you!
My background: life long runner, and currently a cross country coach. I recommend this product to my athletes and use the ctm band myself most days.
I have been using the ctm band for over a year now, and i have really seen the benefits of it. The ctm band provides the same benefits as your foam roller but is especially helpful for alleviating tightness and soreness in muscles that are hard to hit with a foam roller. I have found that the ctm band is far superior to foam rollers in treating the calves, hamstrings, and hip flexors, as those are seas that are hard to place enough weight on with a foam roller.
I have recommended this product to some of the athletes I coach and they have seen the benefits as well. Lingering tightness or soreness that athletes had been struggling with for weeks was alleviated with consistent use of the ctm band before and after workouts.
In short, can’t recommend this product enough to runners or athletes who love their foam roller.
The best tool ever for SMR
This band has really helped me stretch out my calves before early morning workouts. Highly recommend!
This band has helped me nip potential injuries before they happen! Best piece I’ve added!
I love my CTM Band! My physical therapist recommended that I buy the band. I work out a lot and have arthritis in my knees. Using the band on my quads really helps alleviate my knee pain. The band is easy to use and really digs deep into my muscles. It only takes a short amount of time to use and you can target the exact spot you want to work on.
This thing can really help on sore muscles, and allows you to dig into a lot of spots. I have lots of toys, but I use it conjunction with a regular roller, lacrosse ball, and IASTM tool. There are a lot of issues that this is simply the best thing for: lateral and medial quad, high hamstring, peroneus, toe flexors... these are some of my most frequent usage spots, and I really feel the CTM band is the quickest way to take care of them.
Work excellent on trigger points and deep adhesion
I discovered the CTM band in some running articles and decided to give it a try. This product is perfect for releasing tension in my calves and quads after a long ride on the bike. I highly recommend giving it a shot. As testament I bought my sister and dad both one.
Was having problems with Insertional Achilles tried many options but once I started using the band it became the difference maker. Instant relief from tight calves. Use before and after runs.
Since getting my CTM band it has been with me wherever I go. It is so convenient to throw in my pack and can be used anywhere. I love the versatility of it and how it combines compression, movement, and tension to get deep into muscles. It's that 'hurts so good' type of feeling that just makes my muscles feel that much better after using it. My hamstrings are feeling 10yrs younger!
I am able to teach friends quickly how to use it and they instantly see what they are missing out on! Such a great product!
I have had issues with knots in my calves. Usually, I would need to get 60-minute deep tissue massages 2 - 3 times per month to release those and avoid injury. Since using the CTM band, I have cut that down to 1 30-minute maintenance massage per month and really don't find many knots even then. This is everything that is advertised and more.
Ever since I purchased this product I have been able to keep my calves in check. During every running season I would pull my calf muscle and be sidelined for 2 weeks. With the use of the CTM Band I have been able to keep my calves in check. I’ve also have great success using it in my quads.
This is an excellent product and I recommend this for anyone that is an avid runner.
The CTM band is a quick and easy way to ease tight and sore muscles. As a runner, I have used it on my quads, hamstrings, and calves. Just a few minutes of stretching and dynamic exercises with the CTM band on a sore spot will leave your legs feeling fresh again. It is small and inexpensive, yet it gets the job done!
I’m a runner who’s been struggling with a nagging calf pain for over a year before discovering CTM Band. It’s the only thing I’ve found that solved my issue! I couldn’t be happier!
I've been using this for some of my patients now for several months, and they love it. I work with high level dancers and athletes, and this has been a great way to save my hands, and give them something effective they can do on their own.
Tried CTM band a couple months back while prepping for Chicago. Regular usage helps relieve stiff calfs and hamstings.
I'm a runner and love to put on the miles, I suffer from tight calves and the foam roller just wasn't cutting it, so I tried the CTM Band out and man this thing work wonders, the nice thing about it is it's so versatile. I recommend this for recovery.
this is an amazing tool that accomplishes at least 2 major things at once and in a short period of time. the biggest bang for your buck and most you can get out of the time spent on any one set of exercises. amazing product!
I won the CTM band in a giveaway and it's the perfect companion as I run while on shift at the firehouse and when I get off. A foam roller is ofter too cumbersome as an option but this small, neat little package, works great for me. I have had achilles issues off and on for a while and the CTM band minimizes my kisses when I use it to warm up properly.
I absolutely love the CTM band! It is perfect for my active lifestyle and recovery. I even love that I have another tool in my toolbox for clients, the athletes I coach, my family and my self! But let's be honest, it's becoming my main tool!
This really helps me with some of the deeper muscle aches I get from running, especially in my calves. Can be used on multiple parts of the body to help relieve muscle aches.
The CTM Band is the recovery device I never knew I needed. I was skeptical at first, but I trusted the names behind the products! And the CTM Band is now one of my favorite muscle recovery tools. It's ability to dig into smaller areas that are harder to get into simply using other rollers is second to none. I used my CTM Band before and after runs/workouts and I always feel better the next day.
This tool is a lifesaver for my angry quads. And the best part, I can take it everywhere. I've used it at work on my break to relieve tight muscles. I recommend CTM Band to all athletes for muscle soreness or pain.
