Knot-busting excellence! I work long hours in an office and get stiff neck and sore shoulders all the time. I thought I would try this after a particularly stressful time with lots of knots appearing. Amazing! At first I didn't think it was doing much but I kept nodging and after a couple of minutes a nice soothing 'glow' spread across my neck and shoulders. I kept going and it feels amazingly supplethe next day! I am going to try and do a couple of minutes of the Back Nodger every night! Well worth the money, and no hubby needed to knead out that tension :) August 20, 2013
Back Nodger I bought this peculiar looking item to ease muscle tension radiating from my shoulder to the back of my neck. At one point I couldn't turn my neck to the left and this is where the nodger came into its own. In the middle of the red part, there is a nodule which you press into the aching muscle by pushing the black handle away from you. Do this a couple of times within the muscle concerned and magically it releases the tension and the resulting ache. These are not complete instructions but they give a very rough idea how it works. Whilst it is easier to ask someone else to massage the area concerned, there is a right way and a wrong way to massage and can end up making matters worse. This worked for me when I needed it.

Effective Product The Back Nodger has been a really useful product for me. I first bought it when I was having rehab on my shoulder from breaking a collar bone as it allowed me to massage my shoulder to relieve areas of pain and tension. However, now that I am past that injury the Back Nodger still lives on the back of my desk chair for a daily 'nodge' to get rid of few knots after a long day at my desk. Overall a great product and perfect for self massaging. December 11, 2013
