A New Tool For Pain Relief
Almost every person has a muscle strain, or even muscle "knots" somewhere in their body. How do they find relief?
With the Finnish innovation, the Finnhook, you can use simple lever movements to massage and apply pressure to sore muscles or knots, and release the tension.
Not A Back Scratcher
Often while showing the Finnhook to someone for the first time, they use one hand and try to scratch their back with it. But don't miss out.
Once shown how to hold the hook with two hands and gently pull down with the handle to apply pressure to the shoulders or back, their eyes light up.
Ahhh, the hook feels good! And then the fun begins.
At Home or At Work
I've shared the hook with friends at the office. Folks that sit at a desk all day, perhaps suffering from repetitive strain in their shoulders, or low back pain from sitting.
With just a few minutes of practice, these people discover the problem areas in their back, shoulders, or neck, and apply massaging pressure to relieve the pain. It really does feel good.
Think about your own body for a minute. Do you have any place where Finnhook might help?
Sitting at a computer all day? I have used the hook to relieve pain near the right shoulder blade (I'm right handed and use a mouse for several hours).
For those with chronic back or neck pain, the Finnhook can offer much-needed relief when used properly.
Where Does It Hurt?
The rounded end of the Finnhook feels like the firm thumb pressure of a massage therapist. The outside of the hook can be used to roll across muscles, or across the neck, chest or base of the skull as well.
To use Finnhook, locate the problem area and apply pressure for 10 seconds or so. As a therapist can tell you, the application of pressure can renew blood flow to the problem areas in order to relieve pain.
Haven't I Seen Something Like This Before?
Aren't there other trigger point products available, you might ask? There are indeed, several good ones in fact.
The Finnhook is different because it is made from durable birch wood, a natural material.
It pleasant to hold in your hands, and the sturdy handle offers good control of the hook while applying pressure to the muscles of your back.
In addition, the folding handle makes Finnhook easier to store, which is great for traveling or bringing to work.
The Professional Disclaimer
Those familiar with trigger point massage therapy can benefit by applying pressure to muscles on their own without the assistance of another; great for when you need help between appointments, or as a supplement to professional massage therapies.
Finnhook is not intended to replace professional's care, but is a complementary device for treatment outcomes which can be maintained and improved at home.
