Zippy’s Continued Adventures

Zippy_Sing_01.jpg

Well, Zippy and traveling companions had a really fun time in Kuala Lumpur. But, the time came when we all needed to head back to work. The new place for that work was Singapore; at the Women’s Tennis Association’s World Championships.   

Zippy_Sing_02.jpg

Singapore is a city, country located off the southern tip of Malaysia. It is a melting pot of people: Malay, Indian, Chinese, Singaporeans and others from all over the world. It has a population of around 3 million people and they have proven to be very ingenious in bringing their country from a third world nation to a first world country in just one generation!

Singapore was a British Colony. It was occupied by the Japanese during WWII. Following the war it gained its independence from Britain and was part of Malaysia in 1963. Singapore split from Malaysia in 1965 becoming its own country. It has become a major hub for finance, logistics (having one of the largest ports in the world), and technology.

Singapore is palm trees and lagoons; markets and huge malls; high end shopping and cricket! We stayed at the Marina Bay Sands hotel and were greeted in our room by this cool little elephant. Our view from the 48th floor was over the water of the bay. Facing east we got the beautiful sunrises in the morning and Zippy could look out on the famous ‘Gardens by the Bay’. You can see them in the distance, the round structures on the right.  You can wonder through them for hours. Shortly after our arrival came some goodies from the tournament welcoming us in. Zip was feeling quite at home.

Zippy_Sing_07.jpg

Soon after arrival it was time to head to site of the WTA World Championships in Women’s Tennis. Setting up the training room and massage area was in order.  The site is large and included the National Stadium where football (our soccer!) is played, as well they have a large indoor arena that was converted into Center Court. If you enjoy tennis the World Championships is what you want to watch. The top 8 singles players and the top 8 doubles teams compete for the title. The singles play a round robin sequence then the top two players from each bracket play the semifinals and finals. Every match is like a final anywhere. The caliber of tennis is just awesome! Zippy had the opportunity to check out the arena.

Zippy: checking out the view from the line judge’s seat; on center court and a view from the end line.

I know there has been some time since out last blog but keep an eye out as we have some cool Zippy adventures yet to come. The next installment will be all about the main reason that Zippy and 50 of his buds came all the way to Singapore.

On one other note: this is not only a fun little tool it is an efficient little tool. It is great to use as a Massage Therapist to augment your work and it is equally really a fantastic tool to use for self-care whether you are an MT, an athlete or just the average person that has regular aches and pains. The other thing to keep in mind is it is a great gift for clients and to use as give aways for any number of events. Get your logo put on it, if you are an MT order a bunch and give them out to your favorite clients! The holiday season is the time to jump on this!!

That is enough of my plug for this great little tool. Keep an eye out for some of Zippy’s final adventures on the other side of the world!!

Zippy in the Bird Park - Lee Stang, LMT

Touring Kuala Lumpur

Zippy_KL_wetguardians.jpg

One of the things you notice about Malaysia is not only the heat but the humidity. Folks tell us that the weather in Kuala Lumpur was actually mild with temperatures being in the 80-90s and the humidity being less than 90%! Not sure I believe that as it was pretty hot. We did learn that when it started to drizzle one should expect a downpour within 10 minutes! We were absolutely drenched on the first night as we came home from a walking tour of the local market.

Zippy_KL_rain.jpg

Even Zippy got soaked! But that did not deter us from scheduling some exciting days in KL including a full day food tour!

But our first stop was an adventurous day at the national Bird Park, Tamanburung. It was really a pretty neat place where birds were protected but could fly around or meander as they pleased. 

Zippy_KL_park01.jpg
Zippy_KL_park_02.jpg

Zippy’s first adventure was simply observing the sights like this beautiful gentleman that greeted us upon entry! Or the lovely scenery that  provided  these birds both safety and freedom.

Zippy_KL_park_03.jpg

We were actually prepared this time when the drizzle started as we were pretty sure that the torrential rains were about to hit. Luckily we were under this outcropping and waterfall so at first didn’t know it was raining, but then it poured! We anticipated something like this so had found what amounted to a dollar store and purchased not only umbrellas but these nifty rain coats that were quite a fashion statement if I do say so! I think other visitors were jealous!

After the rain we were able to venture into the bird areas and Zippy was able to engage with some of what became our feathered friends.  This guy was curious, kept looking out of the corner of his eye at the Zip.   He started to come closer then decided he was just going to ignore!

Then there were the parrots. Beautiful colors and quite friendly. They looked like they had been painted. One little guy (or gal!) was quite curious and actually picked Zippy up and tossed him into the pen area! Thinking he might have wanted to keep the Zip! Lucking an area worker assisted and brought Zippy back up to the walk-way where we could continue our tour!

)ops! Zippy takes a spill or was actually pushed! But survived to travel on!

Some of the other sights included these lovely birds.  

Another great day.

Zippy heads to Kuala Lumpur - Lee Stang, LMT

Zippy heads to Kuala Lumpur ,Malaysia

Zippy_KL_aisiaair.jpg

On this leg of the trip Zippy got to travel on AirAsia. In total the Zip will be traveling on 5 different airlines. Delta, Korea Airlines, China Eastern, AirAsia, and Singapore Air. So far AirAsia is the favorite. We were able to get into one of the VIP lounges. This was nice as it was an early morning flight.

Zippy_KL_lounge.jpg

I have come to believe that Zippy is a good luck traveling companion as we had upgrades from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! Business class for the 6.5-hour flight. Actually, had a first in my travels, the ‘flat seats’! Those seats in business class that came out and went flat for sleeping. Now we had been looking forward to what we were told was very good food on this AirAsia flight. However, the seats were comfortable enough, the flight was early enough 2:15 am, and the hours worked in Beijing and Wuhan long enough that we were sufficiently tired enough that we slept through breakfast and they had to wake us to put our seats into the ‘upright position’ for landing! A bit disappointing but overall needed.

Arrival in Kuala Lumpur went smoothly; not ever sure we went through customs yet there was a spot that they did check and stamp our passports. But it was oh so easy. Now as we had just a tiny bit of luggage between the two of us the next issue was that of securing a cab or two to our hotel. Again, so easy. You go to the taxi booth in the airport, select the type of car needed, in our case a van, pay and proceed outside where it is then awaiting you! We traveled about 40 miles from the airport to our hotel and with the two of us (three counting Zippy, but the Zip takes up very little room) and our 8+ bags it cost us about 40$ total for the van. And you don’t tip cab drivers in Malaysia!

So we arrived at our destination in KL. Now, all of this trip is for work EXCEPT Kuala Lumpur. We have 5 days before we need to be in Singapore for the World Championships so thought we’d take a little detour to KL. Looking to have some cool adventures here. And we get to stay at the JW Marriott in downtown. Should be fun.

Zippy on Tour, Beijing - Lee Stang, LMT

Zippy In Beijing

Zippy_OlympicPark_rings.jpg

Touring around Beijing Zippy came across the Olympic Park. Site of the 2008 summer Games and the site of the 2022 Games as well. Zippy took a tour around the site and saw the swimming box, Olympic rings and got up close and personal to the Birds Nest that iconic style Olympic Stadium that represents the Chinese Olympics.

Zippy_OlympicPark_taichi.jpg

The Olympic Rings still look over the stadium complex that includes the Birds Nest and the Swimming venue. The park is still well used and a huge destination for the Chinese people coming in for holiday. Here are a group of folks performing a form of Tai Chi.

 

 

Zippy had a good look at the Birds Nest and the very cool architecture that defines it.

Then Zip took a look at some sights at the Olympic Tennis park including the Lotus court and the Women’s singles trophy. All pretty impressive

Zippy had a morning that got him out of the hotel early and onto the streets of Beijing in non other than the basket of a bicycle! At first it was a little daunting what with the Beijing traffic but we soon found that we could maneuver the streets safely within the marked bike paths. Now bike paths in China certainly don’t mean that it is only bicycles that use them. Indeed there are bicycles, motored bicycles carrying any number of items and people, motorcycles and scooters and of course cars. But just not quite so many cars. And also don’t think that being on a bicycle gives you the right-of-way to do anything. Riding a bike in Beijing is the definition of defensive driving. But we found a lovely park to ride through; until of course the policeman stopped us and in no uncertain terms indicated that the park was for pedestrians not bikes!

Zippy_beijing_park_01.jpg

     

View of the park while we were still in it. Didn’t last too long till we had to maneuver in the streets.

Zippy nestled in the bike basket had a great view along the streets of Beijing.

A stop to explore the lions of China: on the left is Zip with the nurturing lion with the cub under the left paw; on the right the lion that is guarding the world with the world under its right paw. Zippy continues his Asian swing with trips coming up to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Singapore!

Zippy at work and recovery! Lee Stang, LMT

So here at the China Open Zippy finds himself in the training and massage rooms working hard; or as they might say of the massage therapist using Zippy, is hardly working! Zippy is a tool that helps save the hands; it fits nicely in the palm as you work with either the roller ball or the flat side. Combining its use with other tools, like massage cups, provides excellent means of releasing tension in the soft tissue without working ones’ hands too hard.

Here you see Zippy working with some of its favorite ‘buds’, the negative ion cups, to release the erector group and deeper paraspinals, even QL.    

Here using the flat end of Zippy allows you to strip the QL and erectors and then using the tip get really specific into multifidi

.Using the roller ball helps to facilitate release through QL muscle belly and along the iliac crest while the cups are in place to help with further release of the tissues. Using the flat end (we often refer to it as the snowboard end) to strip the length of the erector group right through the QL is very effective to get the last bit of tissue release once the cups are removed.

Now Zippy has had a busy week so self-care and recovery are very important. One of the things we often tell our athletes is regarding the value of ice baths to help facilitate the recovery process. Well, Zippy figured if it was good enough for these elite athletes it was good enough for Zippy. So into the ice bath Zippy went! We learned some interesting things about Zippy and water!

Work_ice_03.jpg

The first is that Zippy does not know how to swim! Yes, that is Zippy at the bottom of the cool pool! Embarrassing for the little guy! So, we found that for recovery purposes, if Zippy had either a little plastic bag boat or was able to sit on the ice flow it was much better.

 Another great approach with Zippy is to actually sit in the ice freezer for a while.  It gets good and cold and makes for a nice ice treatment following play or on an area that might be initially quite tender to the touch. A little cold roller ball therapy can go a long way to decreasing tissue tenderness, you can then get into the area a bit easier. And in the freeze Zip doesn’t need to worry about swimming!

As Zippy has been working hard it is now time for some relaxation and fun. Look for Zippy traveling around Beijing. Even a trip out to the country side so see the great wall is in Zippy’s future.

Zippy and Self Care

Zippy_Hand_01.jpg

So one of the things that is obviously important for the massage therapist on a regular basis is taking care of oneself. It is especially important here on the tennis circuit as days are long, anywhere from 9 – 16 hours. Now some of that is taken up with the start the day meetings and then there is the writing of notes. Yet you can have your hands on someone for a good 7-9 hours in a day between the scheduled massage sessions and the spot work in the training room. Self-care becomes essential. That and good sleep! A bit of exercise if you have the stamina!

Zippy comes in quite handy for the self-care part. As a matter of fact, this is one of the reasons the Zip is on this trip in the quantities I am carrying. 50 of them. Zip will be showing a group of young tennis athletes some easy ways to take care of themselves off the court as part of a presentation I will be giving to the WTA Future Stars program.

Zippy_Forearm_01.jpg

Here you see Zippy demonstrating various ways to reduce some the tension throughout various muscle groups.  It is a nice tool for this because of its ease to hold on to. Often as we try doing self-massage the area that we are working feels good but the hand we are doing it with starts to hurt because we cannot use very good body mechanics. Zippy fits nicely into your hand and gives the opportunity for both kneading the muscle with its roller ball or stripping and scrapping the muscle with its flat end.  Its shape allows for easy use with little to no stress on the treating hand and forearm. Try some out on yourself if you haven’t already! It feels ‘oh so good’. Here we are demoing through the clothes but used directly on the soft tissue (with or without a bit of lotion) feels great.

                              

Here we are using Zippy with the gastric/soleus and then it feels great along the ITB.

Zippy_Quad_03.jpg
Zippy_Neck_01.jpg

Use it through the quads and even into the neck. When you add some active movement as you work this tissue it enhances the effects even more! These are some of the techniques that will be shared with the Future Stars kids. But we still have work (and some play) here in Beijing. So keep an eye out for Zippys’ further adventures in Asia. I see some sight-seeing in its future!

Zippy on the road Again!

Zippy has finished working at the Wuhan Open Tennis tournament and is now headed for Beijing! Traveling today on China Eastern

The Zip is quite pleased that he is not traveling in general luggage as it could be dangerous!! There is sooooo much!

Airportagain_01.JPG

Rather Zippy gets to actually travel business class, which is very unusual, with co- travelers Physio Marty Kehoe and Massage Therapist Lee Stang. Ah what a life! Watch for Zippy at the China Open in Beijing. Might even catch a glimpse of the Great Wall and other exciting sites.

Arrival in Asia!

Hello All:

It has been a few days since our arrival in Wuhan, China. We came through Seoul, South Korea where Zippy had a few enjoyable moments in the kids play area while awaiting our next flight out. The Seoul is one of the nicest airports in the world. Look closely and you’ll see the ‘Zip’!

After settling into our hotel, the Hilton Optic Valley, in Wuhan (where the view from our room is quite pleasant) we made our way to the site of the Wuhan Open where we are working as part of the WTA Sports Science and Medicine staff.

I am one of three Massage Therapists here at this tournament that work side by side with our team of five Physios. We provide for the medical needs of any and all players at this tournament. I have found Zippy to be an effective addition to my tool kit when working with these professional athletes. Keep an eye out for additional glimpses of Zippy at work and at play here in Asia!

Zippy enjoying the view and checking out the poster of Chinese star Li Na here in Wuhan.

Here we are having started our adventure to Singapore! Starting out in the tiny Asheville Airport in North Carolina Zippy has made its way to the Delta counter where we actually ran into the pilot of our plane! He was waiting to take over from the incoming flight and when he saw and experienced the Zippy he invited us to visit the cockpit! What fun. You can see Zippy has earned his ‘wings’, is buckled in and is enjoying the ride! Thanks Delta for your warm welcome and for getting us there safely!

Zippy Helping Future Athletes

Hello All and Greetings from the road:

Below is a picture of 50 Zippy Roller Balls ready to make their way to Singapore. They will be traveling through Seoul South Korea, Wuhan and Beijing China, and Kuala Lumpur Malaysia on their way to Singapore. Once there they will be donated to a group of young Girls from throughout Asia that are representing their countries at a combined tennis clinic and tournament.

I am working at the Tennis World Championships that bring the top 8 singles players and top 8 doubles teams together in what has proven to be an amazing tournament. Every match is like a Grand Slam final!!  As part of the festivities of the championships there is a program designed to promote tennis to young women throughout Asia. Girls are selected from all over Asia and come together in Singapore. They get clinic time with former tennis stars and champions.  They get time with a WTA Physio and go through warm ups and discuss match prep options. In between they learn leadership and sportsmanship skills. Finally I get the opportunity to meet with them to discuss self care and massage.

This year, thanks to Stevie and Jim, I get to distribute a Zippy tool to each girl and show them how to incorporate it into their personal self care as well as talk with them about the role of massage therapy in their career. These girls may indeed be the future of professional tennis.

I feel very honored at the opportunities the massage profession has afforded me. Travel is one, working with some wonderful elite athletes, and an exceptional team of Physios and other MTs are some. As well having the opportunity to occasionally do something to help out todays youth in such a positive environment becomes icing on the cake!

We take off for Asia soon so keep an eye out as Zippy follows the flight path from Asheville, NC to Wuhan, China on this first leg of the trip.

Zippy Prepares for an Asian Tour!

Lee Stang is a licensed massage therapist in both North Carolina and Connecticut. Currently riding out the remnants of hurricane Florence in the mountains of NC she is preparing for travels that will take her through Seoul, South Korea and into China, Malaysia and Singapore:  all while doing massage along the way. The Zippy tool travels where ever she goes! We invite you to follow the path of ‘Zippy’ through Asia with Lee.


Hello All!

Lee Stang here, licensed and Board Certified Massage Therapist. I currently live in Hendersonville, NC. Generally a lovely place nestled among the Blue Ridge Mountains of western NC. Today we are fortunate to get only the tail end of the hurricane that has pummeled much of the NC coast and has now moved inland. Lots of rain and we all here continue to say a prayer for those that have been hit much harder by all of this.

I have a private practice here in NC working at both a Chiropractic Clinic and a Tennis Center. I am also extremely fortunate to work for the WTA (Women’s Tennis Association) and get to travel the world with a top notch organization and exceptional healthcare professionals and professional athletes. The WTA, among many other things, provides the healthcare for the professional women’s tour. And I must say that the way in which Massage Therapy is integrated into the program with the physiotherapist, doctors, nutritionists, sports psychology etc. is outstanding. Not an afterthought but an integral part of the team makes working in this environment very exciting and rewarding.

I use a number of different tools in doing massage. The reason: partly to save my hands, but mostly because they are efficient and effective. The “Zippy roller ball” is one of my favorites. Easy to hold and versatile and just plain fun it has many uses that I will try to cover over the next month with the “Adventures of Zippy in Asia”. Stay tuned to see where Zippy’s travels take us!

2018 - Youth sports and Zippy

zippy loves WTA youth tennis - WTA - Women's Tennis Association - Singapore tournament 2018.

Zippy has provided T-Handle golf ball massage Devices for Players in the 2018 WTA Future Stars tournament.

Stevie and I were approached by a massage therapist and long time Zippy owner currently traveling with Women's Tennis Association. The therapist uses the Zippy with players and for self care and has continuously used the device since getting the first Zippy in 2014 at the AMTA Convention.

We were asked to provide Zippy T-Handle golf ball massage devices for the upcoming 2018 WTA Future Stars Tournament, October 21-28, 2018 in Singapore. The requested devices were quickly shipped and are now in the hands of the WTA. Hopefully we might see some #ilovemyzippy / Zippy love during or following the “Future Stars” tournament:  #wtafuturestars #wtafuturestars2018 @wtafinalssg

There is certain satisfaction in knowing we provided the finest product in the world in this category. Over the last six years we have seen it work for ourselves, friends, family, and our faithful, happy customers. The trust in asking us to give Zippy to these youthful athletes, speaks volumes to us. Thank you WTA for this opportunity.

We look forward to getting some photos for the Where in the World page.

Simple. Durable. Effective.

I have a friend, who i have never met, who entertains and seeks to inspire those he addresses. He is tireless in his commitment to his missions and skills in dealing with teaching every level of golf including adaptive golf. He is fueled by his love of golf. And, he is a happy man.

I am tireless in my admiration of his message and his almost superhuman stamina and commitment to his fellow man. He mentioned me in a social media post the other day, thanking me for my continued support. I was grateful for his recognition that we were out here paying attention.

I replied with a three word summary of our support for his work. It was a bit later that i realized the words cover our basic outlook on life-the universe-everything, Zippy, hope and good will toward our fellow man. Three words.

Simple. Durable. Effective.

 

 

Marching forward - 2018

Lot's of events and milestones seem to come and go according to a 'universal' schedule which remains out of our reach. Say, for example, and old dude learning to play soccer. I was fifty four years old when I started playing. I was out of shape, overweight, wearing the wrong shoes, and worse. In my first two games i strained more muscles than I knew I had at the time, but I continued to arrive at the pitch and learn the game. That was fifteen years ago. Eventually i learned the game, and the goal keeper position, and earn my place with every game in a body better set for challenging younger athletes head to head. Who might have guessed that I can keep up on the field as I approach seventy. Yet, I do. Happily. Loving the "beautiful game."

The 'universal' schedule of ideas, how they flow from mental spark to fruition, is similarly interesting at Zippy. Starting August, 2012 all the bits an pieces for a new product (including the production of the product) were in place and we started selling on Indigogo. Five years later and seven thousand Zippy golf ball massagers released to users in the world, and we are beginning to see large purchases of Zippy devices delivered to customers for their clients and patrons. We look forward to more and bigger sales in 2018 as things progress. We will keep you informed. 


Starting in March we would like to hear from users. To do this we propose to give a $50 gift card for the best Zippy photo/video received by May first, as well as,  a $50 gift card for the best Zippy story/anecdote sent to us. If the submissions are significant we will draw names from a hat for the gift cards. There will soon be a new page or two and link for you to follow for your enjoyment. Open to all Zippy owners and users. You can submit your Zippy related story to "storyboard@zippyrbt.com" and your photo or video to "photoboard@zippyrbt.com". Thanks.

BTW

  • Private label and co-branding sales have increased since the first of the year. Our latest large order will see five hundred devices shipping to a casino/hotel/spa near the geographic center of the united states. We can't tell you the customers name, but we can tell you that Zippy is to be included in their spa package program. Spa patrons will receive a Zippy Rocker with custom shell color and the spa logo on the ball when they arrive for their spa service. What a great idea, you say? Yes it is. This is the second spa in 2018 to have purchased for their patrons and marketing and we are anticipating at least one additional large order soon. 

  • Limited run of MIA/POW imprint devices will be ready later in the spring. Zippy devices have been popular with our military friends and we will be contributing a portion of each MIA/POW sale to veterans organizations. Keep watching this space.

  • We brought back the "5 for $40" bundle for the spring. Buy now!

Thanks again to all, ya'll.

 

When is a massage like an Angel?

Hello world, the holiday season is upon us and we have more holiday events to come. I have been thinking a lot about the impact of five thousand Zippys currently in the hands of folks in the world. Zippy products have been sent to New South Wales, Australia; England; Scotland; Amsterdam; Rome, Italy; Israel; Mexico; Columbia;, and demonstrated by Zippy-friends in France, Romania, Croatia, Thailand, and, hopefully, other countries, too. My thoughts are with everyone who has used and/or purchased a Zippy. Good health to you. I wonder how everyone is doing, and I wonder if their Zippy is helping them as much mine helps me. 

When is a massage like an Angel? When it's a chair rub.

I am grateful to be the one who successfully put a handle on a golf ball. Where I was struggling with sore feet and the aches and pains that come with doing the work to get fit and stay fit. Golf ball massage made a difference in my life in general as well as in training and performance as an athlete and a senior.  I recommend Zippy to everyone. #ilovemyzippy
