The patent-pending Thumbby massager is a revolutionary new massage tool that has been designed with the professional and general public in mind. This goes for massage therapists, physical therapists, physicians, personal trainers, chiropractors, spa enthusiasts, people who love to give and receive a massage, and anyone who wants to generate so quick and easy self-care. The beauty of this product is that not only is it easy to use, but it actually feels like a thumb to the receiving party. It can go deep without that unyielding feeling that a lot of hard massage tools provide. In truth, the Thumbby is slightly softer than a thumb, and the point is the same width as a thumb.
The shape of the Thumbby massager concentrates force at the point by 8x what is applied at the base, which means that someone with weak hands and a Thumbby massager can put their body weight onto a thumb-sized point that never tires out. Soft and comfortable to hold, it yields the same way a thumb does when it meets resistance.
The Thumbby has multiple geometries for massage. You can use the point, slope, shoulder, and base to find the right angle to apply pressure to a muscle. It doesn't slip (on dry skin). It has a higher co-efficient of friction than a thumb, which makes it better than a thumb for cross-fiber friction massage, and can be used on the skin as well as through a persons clothing.
The Thumbby sticks to walls, with the base having enough suction to stick onto a smooth surface. Stick the Thumbby to a door and self-massage your own back, or to the floor and give yourself a fantastic self-foot massage.
Weighing in at 6 oz., it is totally portable, can be used heated* (in hot water only - no direct heat or microwave) or chilled* (it's not as cold as ice and it doesn't drip), and can easily be carried in your suitcase, bags, glove compartment, etc. It will let you give (and get) a great deep tissue massage, even if your hands are not strong, and can used anyplace you practice any physical activity. You could also use it to help loosen up your muscles both before and after-wards.
The Thumbby Soft Massage Tool was invented by a massage therapist with 36 years experience, in partnership with an engineer. It will last for years, and is proudly made in Oregon, USA. Each Thumbby comes with an instructional mini-booklet that includes links to a site that has usage pictures and videos, but the only limit to the number of ways you can use this tool is your imagination!
"I have extremely painful sciatica due to piriformis syndrome. By using the Thumbby up against the wall, I've been able to get at my knotted piriformis muscle for the first time! Massage therapy and even $400 worth of acupuncture treatments never get as deep as this does. A welcome relief which will hopefully lead to a full recovery. Karen, Vancouver, BC."
