About this item
- The Original Trigger Point Tool - Trigger points are tight, tender, contracted muscle fibers, which cause pain. Using a Body Back Buddy to apply sustained pressure to a trigger point can interrupt the pain-spasm cycle. When you release the pressure, you will feel the muscle relax as fresh oxygenated blood flows in.
- 2 Hooks Are Better Than 1- The 2 hooks and 11 knobs (in 3 different shapes) were created to alleviate pain and soreness across the entire body. Unlike single muscle hook designs, the two hooks on the Body Back Buddy let you apply more leverage to more parts of the body. The 3 different shapes include acorns for deep tissue, round for gliding over larger muscle groups, and nubs for the lower back.
- Full Body Pain Relief - Designed to be the only massage tool you need to achieve fast, simple relief for your whole body. More than just a shoulder massager, the Body Back Buddy is built to directly target pressure points throughout the body located in the back, neck, shoulders, legs, feet, and thighs.
- Won't Bend or Break - The sturdy one piece construction is lab tested to be up to 30% stronger than other therapy canes. You can see and feel the difference. No assembly required. Ships to you ready to use out of the box.
- Proudly Made in the USA - Every Body Back Buddy is made in Knoxville, TN from materials sustainably sourced in the U.S. Built to last, every Body Back Buddy is backed by a Lifetime Guarantee. If not completely satisfied, contact our U.S. based support team.

From the brand
How we got our startWhile in massage school in 1995, I experienced firsthand the many benefits of applying direct pressure to tight, sore and knotted muscles: noticeable relief, more flexibility and better circulation. I later noticed many of my clients needed a way to manage their pain between visits.

Back Pain, frozen shoulder, mouse shoulder, trigger point
WHAT IS A TRIGGER POINT: Trigger points are tight, tender spots in a contracted muscle, creating involuntary pain and muscle dysfunction. The resulting spasms and increased nerve sensitivity elicit sharp pain or a constant ache in the muscle. Trigger points can also cause referred pain, pain that travels from the effected muscle through the nerves and is expressed in remote areas. WHAT CAUSES TRIGGER POINTS: Trigger points develop from emotional or physical stress, repetitive use or overuse of a muscle, trauma or accidents, structural imbalance, improper stretching (or lack of stretching) before physical exertion. When individual muscle fibers are over-stimulated and unable to release their contracted state, painful knots develop. The knotted muscle experiences a spiral of events starting with a decrease in blood flow, which causes a diminished supply of oxygen, which causes a build up of metabolic wastes, and finally results in the contracted muscle (trigger point) sending out signals of distress and pain. HOW TRIGGER POINT THERAPY WORKS: In most cases you can eliminate your muscle pain by treating Trigger Points yourself with the Body Back Buddy. When you apply pressure to the Trigger Point, the pain-spasm cycle is interrupted which helps stop the contraction making the pain go away. The Body Back Buddy gives you easy access to all parts of your body. You control the amount of pressure you want to apply. Each therapeutic knob on your Body Back Buddy is designed to simulate the shape and size of the thumbs and elbows therapist's use for Trigger Point Therapy. To treat your trigger points, comfortably position a therapy knob directly over the affected muscle and apply sustained pressure for a period long enough to release the muscle spasm (about 10-30 seconds). When you release the pressure, you will feel the muscle let go and relax. Regular use of your Body Back Buddy is one of the most powerful yet simple ways you can treat muscle pain and discomfort.

You can get so much pressure with so little force, in a controlled way, while the muscles are relaxed.
There is no muscle you can't get to while laying down, your entire back, shoulders, glutes.
Once you experiment and figure out the ways to hold the thing to hit your spots, you will use this every day.

I am used to the lovely oohs and aahs from my clients when I treat them, now I too can make the same noises of relief for my poor overworked muscles and joints.
Just be sensible with this very useful effective tool.
Recently I have been suffering more and the massages I was having, while nice, just weren't cutting it. With the foam roller and massage balls I had I just couldn't get to the knotted muscles myself. So I turned to Google to see if I could find anything that I could use to get at the source and I came across the Body Back Buddy.
Initially, I didn't buy it but the pain persisted and so I popped it into my shopping cart.
And now I wish I had bought it years ago. After just one use I was able to get at the tight muscles under my shoulder blade and release some. I don't have the constant feeling of a tennis ball sized knot getting in the way under there and so slept better than I usually do.
The right side of my back hasn't felt this loose and relaxed in such a long time so I am looking forward to regularly using the Body Back Buddy on all those tight areas around my body, getting the treatment I need without the high price tag.
I suffer withe shoulder muscle pain badly and it releases tension completely.
You have to spend a little time with your eyes closed mindfully finding where it’s needed, and then...... a little pressure and gentle coaxing and, aaahhhhhh......bliss. ( I still think it’s pricey! 🤣)
It's very light weight and reaches all those trigger points in the back and neck. First day I got it I used the pointy end to press against those trigger points for 30 seconds a time and was amazed how free I could move afterwards. I knew I was tensed up but it had been a slow build up so to have it all suddenly released made me feel amazing.
I had been looking into seeing a physio or osteopath so this has probably saved me a fortune in therapy!
