Back in 1995, we began the process of creating a tool that would comfortably and effectively treat any muscle while being lightweight, versatile and simple enough for anyone to use. After 22 years and hundreds of thousands of happy customers, the current Body Back Buddy is the result of our continued commitment to innovation and improvement.
Our uniquely designed S-shaped massage tool provides 11 perfectly placed therapy knobs that offer you easy access to any part your body. For example, while holding the tool comfortably in front of your chest, you can manipulate the S curves to apply as much or as little pressure as you desire to any pressure point on your neck and back.
The Body Back Buddy is recommended by health and fitness experts as a highly effective tool for pain management techniques like Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, and Deep Tissue Massage.
With nearly a million Body Back Buddies sold worldwide we have set a standard that few others can match. Purchase your authentic Body Back Buddy from Body Back Company today and start experiencing one of the best self-massage tools on the planet.
The Body Back Buddy’s open design and natural shape allow you to reach all muscle groups of the body: back, neck, shoulders, chest, arms, hands, buttocks, hips, legs and feet. By varying the amount of pressure applied and the angle at which it is directed, you can release tight, spastic, knotted muscles. You control the amount of pressure and determine the exact spot that requires treatment. Even with minimal strength and eﬀort you can treat areas that are virtually impossible to reach without the Body Back Buddy.
On each Body Back Buddy you will find three styles of therapy knobs: a dull rounded one intended for broader surface massage; a pointed type, which will let you accurately penetrate deeper into a specific area; and the two dull nubs (4 & 6) located on the center of the tool that are specifically designed to massage the upper buttocks and the back on either side of the spine.
Knobs 1 & 11 oﬀer you either a soft or deep massage on just about anywhere on your body, especially shoulder and back; 2 & 10 are ideally placed for foot reﬂexology and massage; 8 & 9 are perfect for massaging the neck up to the base of the skull; with 3, 5 & 7 being general purpose knobs.
Its versatility allows you to approach each muscle from many angles in creative ways. Since there are hundreds of ways to use the Body Back Buddy, take a moment to experiment and find out what works best for you. Use it standing, sitting, lying down or with a partner.
With all self massage tools you are responsible for knowing your limits. Always start slowly, and never over work an area. If you ever experience pain or discomfort as a result of self massaging, stop immediately! It is possible for certain fabrics and materials to harm your skin. And never forget to drink lots of water before and after massage sessions! Hydrated muscles, are healthy happy muscles, and Body Back Company wants you to Stay Loose!
Every Body Back Buddy has been 100% sourced and made in the USA since 1995.

There is no one tool better suited for Myofascial Release (MRF), Acupressure, and Deep Tissue Massage Therapy than the Body Back Buddy.
What is a Trigger Point?
What we generally refer to as "muscle knots" are actually myofascial trigger points. These small patches of tightly contracted muscles can spasm and increase nerve sensitivity causing a sharp pain or constant aching.
What Causes Trigger Points?
Trigger points can develop naturally from day-to-day life. Many common factors are stress, repetitive or overuse of a muscle, trauma or accident, structural imbalance, improper stretching or no stretching before physical activity.
What is Fascia:
Fascia is a continuous fibrous structure that runs head-to-toe throughout your body. It is densely woven and connected to every muscle, nerve, artery, vein and bone, as well as internal organs, including brain, spinal cord, heart and lungs.
The Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy:
Trigger Point Therapy, also known as Myofascial Release, is an effective hands-on approach to pain management that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into an affected muscular area. It’s believed that by stimulating blood flow you can address the connective tissue restrictions, eliminating pain while restoring motion.
Deep Tissue Massage:
This massage technique makes use of slow penetrating strokes to reach the deeper layers of muscle and fascia. It's used to relieve chronic pain and aches from contacted stiff and sore areas.
This ancient healing art uses the fingers to slowly press healing points throughout the body. These healing points are believed to stimulate your body's own natural healing abilities. This treatment is ideal for stress related issues.
Based off the principle that your entire body is connected through your nervous system, it is believed that you can stimulate nerve endings in your hands and feet to treat ailments throughout the entire body.
