Be your own therapist
For less than the price of a massage, the Back Buddy is a tool you can use every time your body needs attention. No appointment necessary, just find the trigger point and apply pressure until it releases. This puts you in control, exactly the right amount of pressure, the right spot, and before the symptoms get any worse. Most people find the tightness is recurring, like after a workout, sitting in front of the computer all day, or one too many piggy back rides. Whatever the cause, you don’t have to wait for the problem to go away, or hope that it comes right on its own–you can be your own Mr Fixit! Knowledge is power once you have the tool.
Which one works best?
Forget the corner of the countertop, the door frame, the bed post, or the creatively-arranged dining chair. And don’t even think about bribing someone for their elbow. Only you can apply exactly the right amount of pressure, in exactly the right spot, every time. With 11 points and 2 different shapes–round or pointy, there is not a tight muscle that can’t be reached with the Back Buddy. (Don’t forget the handles, they are really useful too for applying pressure.) The I-beam design makes the tool at least 3x stronger and more rigid than similar cylinder designs like the Thera-Cane. The 11 specially-engineered points are strategically placed to provide and extremely versatile, multifaceted treatment tool for relieving pain, tension and stress anywhere in your body.
How does it work?
So how does it work? Leading researchers in the field of fascia (the body’s connective tissue network that holds everything in place) have found that this little-known substance is extremely strong and found in and around every cell of our body. It is capable of conducting electrical impulses and mechanical force because it is a liquid-crystalline material. In the ideal environment, the fascia is flowing like liquid. Under stress, the fascia becomes gritty, or gristly, as it crystallises. Therefore, the best way to release tightness and tension in our body, is to apply pressure to the knots or gristly bits–known as ‘trigger points’ because the usually trap a nerve that refers–and wait for the fascia to melt, release and return to its naturally, healthy, fluid state.
