Trigger point therapy tools
Today in the massage world, there are useful little tools that help your hands by making it easier to put more pressure into a focused spot and to also prevent chronic injuries in your hands if you massage everyday.
Body Back buddy
The best massage stick on the market. I keep this thing in my car for emergencies. It works extremely well and is one of the best trigger point tools on the market.

The best foam roller on the planet
Trigger point roller sticks
(buy one of these or use a rolling pin that has ball bearings)
Works great, looks great, feels great, but kinda pricey. They will impress you no matter what though, and if you want something that will last a long time, look no further:

The Original Jack Kobber II
I like the variety in knobs and the placement. I find that it hurts my hand personally, and I have never used it for that long on others because of this. I like to massage my quads with it a lot though, and it serves that purpose well.

Theracane back massager
This back massager bar has been around for a long time and is well known. I found it to have some flaws myself, and I only use it as a back up stick
To sum things up: If you are looking for a light weight back massager that is only going to be used on the back, get the Thera Cane.
If you want more options for other areas of the body, look elsewhere. It does do its job extremely well on the back muscles, and I would not mind using only this one, its just that I have been spoiled by some more fancier massage sticks on the market.

Wooden foot roller
If you have had any foot/ankle issues, you should probably invest in a good foot roller. But good, I mean a wooden one as in the picture to the left. these foot rollers work extremely well for releasing the muscles on the bottom of the foot. If you have plantar fasciitis, you need one.

I never tried this one yet, but it is on my to do list. It looks really ingenious and extremely comfortable to use. I really like the shapes that they cut out for the hands. I have a good feeling about this one and will write a review on it some time soon when I buy one.
