Rated 5 out of 5 feels great
I have only used it a few times since Christmas, but I love it! My back feels stretched and happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by proudsailor wave bye bye to back pain
I have always had pretty good posture, but I find that sometimes my back is more reluctant to comply with my posture requests. To whip it into shape, I break out my wave. I then do two or three of the exercises included. The most relaxing (to me) is when I lay on the floor with the wave under my hips and gently rock it. I can feel all the muscles in my thighs, hips and back relax and let go.
Also, I am only 5'1" tall, so most couches and chairs are too deep for me. I just put the wave on the back of the couch or chair, and it gives me the extra inches I need to fit the chair. Not only does this help my feet touch the floor, it also gives my back a bit of a massage because my spine is cradled in the channel.
I thought the wave was pricey, but with Giaim's return policy, I figured I had nothing to lose. If it didn't work or I didn't like it, I could return it. Sorry, Giaim, I'm keeping it. I believe it was worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LillyPie More Detailed Instructions would be helpful
I just received the backwave 2, which is the first product I have purchased like this. I try to stretch to help alleviate the constant ache of my oft-subluxated spine, but without any assistance I often just end up wanting to self-adjust. This definitely helps in that department - I no longer twist on the floor trying to stretch my spine. Considering i just purchased the item I cannot say yet how helpful it is, I have found myrself going back to the instructions that came with it numerous times trying to see exactly what they mean by a certain position. One suggestion I would make is definitely more detailed pictures on the instructions (or possibly make more informaiton available online) I have found it difficult when trying to stretch out my neck (which is one of the main reasons that I bought it) - I cannot find a good spot. Once I move and have my mini home-gym this may end up having an esential spot on the workout mat - we'll have to wait and see!

Rated 2 out of 5 by BrooklynGal Directions?
The booklet included in the box is a joke. No where in any of the brochure does it say which end to put where and the pictures are all useless. The glossy photos do not show which end is facing towards either the neck or the hips.
I do not understand how a product could be sent out without a proper manual or directions.
We have played around with positioning it and found that it provides a bit of relief but we would have appreciated a more informative manual.
Seriously Gaiam this is just poor planning.
My partner who is a certified fitness trainer was just as perplexed.
