As a young inventor, Spring Faussett started ordering parts online and putting them together. What came to be was this strange new "human rolling pin" that she called Tiger Tail, which was created in her garage using materials she found online and at Home Depot. The name, which comes from the colors of the product, reminded Faussett of a tiger and how a tiger's tail is straight, powerful and represented balance. Now, Tiger Tail is famously known worldwide as the orange and black muscle roller.
Faussett is neither a physical therapist nor a massage therapis, but rather an athlete who had a whole lot of pain from all the sports she chose to play. One year, after tearing her ACL, she opted to harvest her own hamstring to do the repair. Her therapists recommended a foam roller or a rolling pin to help reduce the pain and heal the scar tissue. Neither worked and she wondered what would happen if she crossed a rolling pin with a foam roller and the Tiger Tail was born. To this day, Tiger Tail is still Made in USA and each Tiger Tail goes through Faussett’s original production process to ensure quality.
