The back buddy is a great invention, you can really get to to those hard to reach spots with as much pressure as you want by yourself.

The Body Back Buddy is by far the best hook massage tool in my collection for a number of reasons.

First off, I also own the standard S-Hook as well as the Theracane and from my experience with all three, this one is the winner by a long shot.

The S-Hook's main advantage is the ability to take it apart, which makes it very compact for travel purposes. But even still, I like to take the BBB with me unless compact space is absolutely critical.

The Thera-Cane's main advantage is its simplicity. It is one-sided and fairly light-weight compared to the BBB.

Now for the real review, the Body Back Buddy has many advantages over the above mentioned tools.

- 11 knobs in assorted sizes and shapes from small to round to pointy
- Large enough to command and control comfortably
- Handles are angled for better leverage compared to other tools
- Can use on practically every muscle group from abs, chest, shoulders, whole back, quads, hams, feet, neck, etc...
- Great conversation starter

Summary:
When I say I take my BBB with me everywhere, I mean EVERYWHERE! It's that awesome! I'm at a computer for 10 hours-a-day almost every day and before I found the BBB, I had a hard time releasing tight muscles and trigger points. Although I did have the S-Hook and Theracane, I found myself not using them as much as I do the BBB. My best guess is that it just wasn't as effective and I quickly got tired of effort required. It's true that you can use your body weight and larger muscle groups to leverage the pressure on the aforementioned tools, but the BBB is just much better at it.

I especially love the pointy knobs for really digging into deep trigger points in the back, shoulder and feet.

I could not decide which device to buy, so I ordered both. I love both! Within 5 minutes of opening the package (sturdy packaging from DBROTH) I was massaging a tight muscle in my back that I had not been able to reach before. I am 62 and have had over 40 years of back aches. I have tried stretching, yoga, the tennis ball in the tube sock thing, a hugger mugger roller, and every over the counter pain pill ever invented. Last night I took a hot soak in the tub and then 30 minutes of theracane and back buddy. This morning I woke up and my back was not aching. I don't remember the last time that happened. These items came with the booklet from Theracane that showed massage positions. You can download the manual from the Body Back Buddy web site. I also ordered the trigger point workbooks. I will read them some day when I put the canes down.

(approximate) Theracane Dimensions:
height: 24 inches;
diameter across cane head: 11 inches;
handle length from cane to bulb: 3.5 inches;
diameter of round bulbs: 1 inch;
length of little knobby things: 1 inch;

(approximate) Back Buddy Dimensions:
height: 27 inches;
diameter across larger cane head: 11 inches;
diameter across smaller cane head: 9 inches;
handle length from cane to bulb: 4 inches;
diameter of round bulbs: 1 inch;
length of pointy bulbs: 1.5 inches;
length of little knobby things: 1 inch;

Go ahead and laugh at me! I don't care! My back is happy!

First off, I usually have tightness in my shoulders and neck (probably from spending too much time in front of a computer all day at work). I also have stiffness in my lower back from time to time. The BBB is really effective at reaching all my knots and bringing relief through hitting those pressure points (on the neck, upper and lower shoulder blade, and all along the spine). What makes it so good is that when you position the "ball points" on those areas, the tool is designed so that you can use just modest leverage to get to the deep tissue. This is key because you can use this for quite a while and not get tired. I can't stress the importance of this enough. I find that with proper positioning, I can really get a lot of pressure by simply using my arm weight with modest effort.

Also, I find that with some practice you can actually slide the ball points along your tight areas, which more effectively mimics a real massage vs. just getting point pressure (which I find brings less relief). For instance, by gently laying on top of the bbb (facing up), I can get a very deep lower back massage - and all by myself!

The bbb is also very sturdy. Takes a little bit of experimentation to get used to it, but all in all, it's one of my favorite self-massage tools and I would highly recommend it.

There is only one thing that I wish this tool would be and that is more travel friendly. It is a bit odd shaped and difficult to fit into a small to medium-sized gym bag and back pack. Otherwise I'd take it with me everywhere. It is very effective at getting rid of all the aches and pains developed after sleeping in a bad position, working long hours, sitting at a computer for too long, traveling, and over-exertion. I must have saved several hundred dollars in massage therapy and pain killer medication costs in the past year and a half that I've owned this.
