BEARTRAP THERAPY

Treat yourself

Muscle compression therapy creates micro-tears within the treated muscles. This increases blood flow and stimulates your bodies natural muscle recovery. This increased blood flow brings more nutrients to your muscles during the recovery process. This technique is used frequently in physiotherapy and remedial massage.

Use it everyday

Beartrap can be used everyday! Each muscle group can be treated safely once per day for 3-5 minutes at a time. If soreness from treatment is significant take a rest day, and decrease the compression you’re applying next time.

Listen to your body

The physiotherapy techniques Beartrap emulates can cause discomfort during treatment, know to therapists as biofeedback. Tighter muscles will experience more micro-tearing, and therefore more pain sensations during treatment. Conversely if the muscle is not as tight the pain response will be minimal. Use this feedback to learn where to treat, and how much compression to apply.

Mix it up

The best thing about Beartrap therapy is how adaptable it is. If you find a unique position that helps you relieve pain or increase mobility, add it to your daily treatment!
