"How long are my balls good for?"

The Roll Model Therapy Balls are made of natural rubber. They have a pliable grip and grab to them that moves our skin and subsequent deeper layers of muscle, fascia, adipose, ligaments, tendons and everything else awesome inside you. The more we use our balls, the more grippy and grabby they get; they also get more squishy and soft. It takes some work to wear in our Therapy Balls, and with each use they get more awesome. At some point, becomes an exercise of diminishing returns. The Therapy Balls may become too squishy and worn out for your liking.
Therapy Balls that are squishy and soft feel amazing on the tender areas of our body like our pelvic floor and face. Firmness is a matter of personal preference. Some folks just prefer softer balls than others. I still have my first pair of original therapy balls and I save them for pelvic floor work.

We use our Therapy Balls together in their tote, or break them up and use one ball on the left and one ball on the right side of the body. We use them evenly because we need our Therapy Balls to wear in at the same pace so we don't have an asymmetrical pair. After rolling on your Therapy Balls, take a look at them. When a ball no longer returns to shape, or cannot maintain a rolling shape while on it, is probably ready for retirement.
The time it takes to wear out your Therapy Balls will depend on which balls you are using and which body parts you primarily roll on:
