i use something simliar, its very helpful
i use a baseball bat or a rolling pin:)
i have it,
not really happy with it, cant get deep enough,
self massaeg works better, but with that fingers are getting hurt.
I find the stick very useful for warming up and cooling down.
You can also pick up a Pinkie ball for a buck.
I use it in my therapy session, very good!
Foam roller is ok too!
Thanks for the replies people. The foam roller I bought is good but there are areas that it can’t really get to, so something like this would be a good additional massager to have. Think I’ll just make one myself though - looks easy to make.
I’ve got a “Stick”, foam roller, and a few of the TP Massage products. I think all of these items have there place, and individually each can reach some muscle groups better than others.
The commercial products are convenient and easy to use, but I suppose the results could be re-created on a budget. A tennis ball and a stuffed paper towel tube might suffice, if not being somewhat cumbersome to use.
In regards to the stick, I have the general purpose “Marathon” stick. It is stiff enough for all but the quads and hams; unless those areas are already sore.
