Sensory Massage Balls
Great Stimulation. Using the principles of acupuncture, zonal therapy and massage, the Massage Ball aims to bring relief from pain caused by muscle tension and aid recovery from musculoskeletal injuries.
The increased blood flow stimulated by the massaging action of the Massage Ball helps to remove muscle tension, while the 230 densely packed, raised points affect the sensory organs of the skin, increasing afferant stimulation of the nervous system. This is particularly important when dealing with the soles of the feet.
The Massage Ball is particularly effective on paraspinal muscle tension and when used on trigger points. Reflexologists also report dramatic results where stimulation of zones on hands and feet may help the organism get rid of the body's waste products. It also stimulates the acupuncture meridian lines, increasing the body's energy flow. Just roll the Massage Ball along
your body, applying as much gentle pressure as is comfortable. Use on yourself, patients or family.
Sensory Massage Ball - available in red, blue, or green
The Original Orbit Massager
The Original Orbit Massager has a smooth, comfortable shape that allows you to give a stress releasing, relaxing massage to the back, neck, shoulders and to muscles throughout the body. You can use the Original Orbit Massager on yourself or on patients or family. The innovative, gliding action of its freely rotational ball kneads the muscles in the same way the professional massage therapist works to loosen and relax soft tissues and to encourage circulation.
PP-OM The Original Orbit Massager - available colours vary, but may include green, red and purple.
The Original Knobble II
About the size of a standard doorknob, the Knobble II is made of durable polymer. The base is held in the palm of the hand, and the smoothly rounded tip is used to apply pressure to trigger points in soft tissue. The Knobble® II has the added benefit of a soft band of non-latex Santoprene around the base that allows for friction techniques. Bodyworkers often use the Knobble® II to save wear and tear on their hands when applying deep, prolonged pressure to knots or strands of contracted muscle. But the Knobble® II is not meant to replace your healing hands, only to help them do more and last longer. Remember to position yourself in such a way that you use your weight, not just your strength, to apply pressure to the muscle. Avoid direct pressure against the spine and other bones.

The Original Index Knobber II
The Original Index Knobber ® II is an ideal instrument for clinic or home use. Molded in highly durable polymer, it allows the user to apply deep, sustained and precise pressure to trigger points and to sore, stiff muscles. Hands-on therapists frequently comment on how easy it is to use The Original Index Knobber ® II tool, because it protects the hand and forearm against fatigue and overuse while allowing maximum control and sensitivity to the patient. Available Colors: Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue, Amethyst Purple, Emerald Green, Glacier Blue and Crystal Clear.

The Original Jacknobber II
The Original Jacknobber ® II is an elegantly designed, hand held massage tool that can be used to provide a most pleasant and relaxing back massage. The knobs at each of its four points can be used in many ways to apply deep pressure to muscular trigger points.The smaller knobs provide deeper, more intense pressure. The larger knobs provide broader, gentler pressure. Use one knob at a time to press deeply into imbedded trigger points; use two knobs at a time on either side of the spine. Arguably the most satisfying hand held massage tool available.

The Original Palmassager ™ is one of the most efficient massage therapy aids ever made. Hold it firmly in the palm of the hand and use one, two or three of its smooth, round knobs to massage tense, tired or sore muscles of the neck, back, shoulders, arms or legs. Ergonomically placed finger holds at the base of each leg provide for optimum comfort and control.
