Body Back Buddy
The 11 strategically placed knobs on this lightweight massage cane efficiently break up knotted muscle in your neck, shoulders, and back. You can use it on your arms and legs, too.
This contraption invites you to clamp in a leg or an arm and use the roller to provide a gentle massage or intense trigger-point therapy. The adjustable arms make it as effective on hands as it is on elbows, calves, and thighs.
