How to Use Your Body Back Buddy
Hook the Body Back Buddy over your shoulder or around your side to reach areas of the back, neck and shoulders. Hold the handles or the frame so that the therapy knob targets the sore or knotted muscles. Push away from your body with your lower or outside hand while guiding the therapy knob with the upper or inside hand. This technique creates self-directed pressure to the targeted muscle. You can also use the Body Back Buddy to apply healing pressure to many other parts of the body such as your legs, arms, feet, chest and hips. The 2 hook design with 11 therapy knobs in 3 different shapes allows you to approach each muscle from many angles in creative ways. Take a moment to experiment and find out what works best for you. Use it standing, sitting, lying down or with a partner.
How Much Pressure to Apply
Place the therapy knob on the sore muscle and apply a comfortable amount of pressure. When this muscle compression is released it stimulates a therapeutic response.Figure out your own tolerance level and go with what works for you-- deep and intense or gentle and relaxing. Apply as much pressure as you can tolerate for up to 30 seconds at a time. More pressure than you can comfortably tolerate and longer than 30 second intervals are NOT recommended.
For the best pain relief, return to the treated area three to four times each session.
