Trigger Point Massage Therapy Tools - The Body Back Buddy Massage Cane

Have you ever noticed that when you are stressed or overworked a massage can work wonders? The problem is that you'll often find that the one place you can't reach yourself is the place that needs massaging the most.

Between the shoulder blades or lower down your back seem to be the worst culprits. Even if you can reach some of the knots like the back of your neck or should you can't apply enough pressure to work out the knots.

This is where trigger point therapy tools come into play. A trigger point therapy tool such as the Body Back Buddy Massage Cane or the Thera Cane Back Massager can allow you to reach the trigger points that you can't reach yourself.

These massage therapy tools have been developed over recent years by chiropractors and massage professionals to allow you to self massage with amazing accuracy and results . You only need to read the reviews on sites such as amazon to see how useful they are. Out of 57 reviews 48 gave the Body Back Buddy 5 stars and 7 gave it 4 stars. Basically these things work and do what they are supposed to do.

These tools have many benefits such as:

They can help to release sore muscle trigger points with shiatsu massage/ pressure massage

They make it easy to reach hard to reach shoulder and back trigger points

They can be beneficial for shiatsu treatment of Fibromyalgia trigger points

Allows you to self treat knotted muscles in your neck and back

They may help to reduce muscle pain by means of direct applied pressure

They can work out knots in hard to reach places.

Massage Therapy tools generally come in two types, collapsible which are great for traveling and the sturdier one piece cane which is perfect for use at home or in the office. The canes are simple to use just locate the area that needs treatment and then apply the cane. No matter where the ache or know you'll always have a ball within reach of just the right area.
