Frequently Asked Questions
Please read our FAQ before sending us a message.
With the versatility of the P-Knot and the diverse variables each individual has, there is no blanket population who should not use the P-Knot. A medical professional should be consulted before engaging in exercise. Certain special populations should not use the P-Knot without the supervision and guidance of their health care professional. These populations would include people with severe osteoporosis, myositis, and skin diseases where open wounds are present.

All over! However, for each individual there are certain parts you may want to focus on which will depend on what postural imbalances one has, and where one might be experiencing pain. A recommendation regardless of these variables is to “free roll”. This is where you get down on a P-Knot with no plan in which through the mind-body connection you will instinctively know where to put the P-Knot for treatment. Let pain be your guide and P-Knot where you need a release. But we also have many routines in our “how to” section of the websites. Keep checking the routines as we will be updating and adding constantly.
A little discomfort is expected during the P-Knotting process much like the discomfort experienced during a deep tissue massage. When P-Knotting it is best to gauge discomfort to stay within a 5-8 out of a scale of 10, where 10 is not tolerable. If you are unable to tolerate P-Knotting move further away from this area or decrease the applied pressure. Stick with what you can handle and over time your CNS will allow you to become a little more aggressive.
There is no specific amount of time one should use their P-Knot. If you are P-Knotting a specific area, then the isolated area should not exceed 30 minutes at a time. If you spend a few minutes on that isolated area, then you can revisit that area up to 6 times a day, but if you spend 30 minutes on that area, you should allow a 24 hour period for the area to go through the healing response. Other areas can be P-Knotted during this rest period. It is recommended that the P-Knot is used daily. The P-Knot also aids in improving sitting and lying down posture, so in this sense, you are not engaging in SMR and can use it as much as it is needed. Just remember that moderation is the key with everything, P-Knot included. Listen to your body, and do what feels right.
Self Myofascial release is the process of relaxing muscles which have been stuck in contraction by means of self-massage. Myo=muscle and fascia is a thin netting which encapsulates all of our organs, and acts like shrink wrap separating the muscles. SMR breaks up muscle tissue which has become “knotted” relieving the tension, and increasing circulation.
