RumbleRoller Beastie®

Beastie Series products expand the RumbleRoller experience to provide more intense, versatile, portable, and affordable massage options. The Beastie is an aggressive massage ball that is the heart of this series.

Beasties Series products don't replace the RumbleRoller, but they are more specific in purpose. Use them to dig deeper into a troublesome area, or to work with greater detail on smaller muscles – e.g. those of the forearms and calves.

Limitations of Conventional Massage Balls

The Beastie was created to overcome the many limitations of conventional massage balls:
too big Too Big
Larger balls can be used to massage broad surfaces of your body, but they won't get into more confined areas (e.g. close to your spine) and are too blunt to dig into the muscle.
too absorbent Too Absorbent
Balls with fabric or knitted covers absorb sweat, dirt, and bacteria, and are more difficult to clean.
too small Too Small
Smaller balls, such as golf balls, are relatively inconvenient to use because they need to be elevated on a block to reach many areas of your body.
too shallow Too Shallow
Putting bumps on a ball is a step in the right direction, but shallow bumps only provide superficial stimulation and aren't effective for deep-tissue massage.
too hard Too Hard
Balls with very hard surfaces will dig deeper into the muscle, but can also bruise the bone. That makes them less effective than a ball with a more elastic surface.
too crowded Too Crowded
Taller bumps have the potential to dig deeper into the muscle, but placing them too close together limits their penetration and negates the effect.
too soft Too Soft
Inflated balls or ones made of foam can't provide enough localized force for deep-tissue massage, and don't hold up well to heaver use.
too sparse Too Sparse
Having too few bumps can also be a problem. This type of massage ball doesn't roll, so it's difficult to reposition when you're lying on top of it.

Advantages of the Beastie

We wanted you to have not just a great massage ball, but the best possible massage ball. So we invested considerable time, attention, and resources in its development. Here are the results of our efforts:
RumbleRoller Beastie advantages

Original or X-Firm?

The Beastie is available in two versions – Original (clear), which has firm but flexible bumps, and X-Firm (green), which is extremely firm.

The best one for you depends on both your sensitivity to pain and your method of use. For example, if you're using the Beastie on the floor and putting your full weight on it, we recommend the Original version. If you're using the Beastie against a wall, you'll be applying much lower forces to it, and will probably respond best to the X-Firm. If you plan to work your entire body and experiment with different techniques, you may want to own both versions.

Use of the Detachable Base

The detachable base is more than just a place to park your Beastie when you're done using it. It's a fundamental, patent pending part of the Beastie system, and it provides these distinct benefits:
Beastie Base
  • Elevation
    The Base elevates the Beastie an additional 1/2" above the surface, to better access hard-to-reach areas of your body.
  • Intensification
    The Base orients the Beastie so that one of its bumps is held firmly in a straight-up position. That guarantees maximum penetration of the muscle.
  • Stabilization
    The Base prevents the Beastie from rolling. That facilitates more controlled massage techniques, and it also allows you to work off the side of the Beastie to generate higher shear forces in the muscle tissue.
  • Retention
    The Base retains the Beastie so that it can more easily be used in off-the-floor applications.
  • Attachment
    In addition to being a free-standing support, the Base serves as an adapter to removably attach the Beastie to either a wall or the Beastie Wall System.

Additional Accessories

The Beastie is also designed to work with the Beastie Hook.

Beastie Instruction

Each Beastie is packaged with a User's Guide that introduces basic concepts of self-massage. For video instruction of specific techniques, we recommend Jeff Alexander's SMR Tips DVD. And for the best hands-on instruction, consider attending an Alexander Method of SMR Certification Clinic.
