A pain appears when the muscle fibers are irritated, inflamed or broken, in the slightest injuries this massager hook has an immediate effect, whatever the reason for the initial ailment.
  • Myofascial massage: the pressure exerted by this product stimulates the fascia, which is a tissue that covers the entire body and is like a second skin that carries oxygen and nutrients to the organs that are covered by it. The fascia is thick, dense and the massaging hook will allow you to offer a deep massage that will release the tension that is accumulated in it due to overwork or physical injury. Start with gentle pressure, while you learn to better manipulate this device.

  • Trigger point massage: there may be one or more trigger points in a muscle group, so different shapes and distances between the tips of this therapeutic hook were designed. You can even increase the pressure you exert on inaccessible parts such as the back, using one or both hands, depending on the depth you want to reach with this multipurpose product. It is recommended that you have a minimum of knowledge about what the trigger points are.
  • Plantar fasciitis: the fascia is also in the foot, it goes from the heel to the metatarsals and allows the plantar arch, so when the fascia is damaged, the pain starts from the heel and radiates to the toes in a few days if you do not use this manual hook to massage and reduce plantar fasciitis. This is a typical injury in runners, cyclists and people who work by standing and walking a lot at their workplace. Use the more rounded points when you are going to stimulate the sole of the foot.
  • Release adhesions: the manual massage hook is ideal to avoid adhesions, because it requires punctual pressure, but not aggressive, in the abdominal area and back to prevent the internal organs from joining in an irregular way. This binding generates pain and discomfort when walking and even when lying down. This product is often recommended by surgeons when they know that there may be possible adhesions in patients with postoperative treatments.

  • Muscle activation: one of the raisons d’√™tre of massages is to keep the muscles active and fit, when people do not have enough time to warm up or train in a gym.

And if you combine the manual massager with a good diet and a daily walk, there will be better results for your body.

What are the benefits?

  • Pain relief: the main benefit of any massage is to soothe pain when there is mild discomfort such as contractures and cramps, stimulating the pain receptors to perceive less discomfort generated by muscle wasting or some sudden movement that gave rise to this symptom. When you manually adjust the pain threshold, you give the body time to relax and begin repairing damaged cells. If the pain is sharp and without inflammation, it is better not to offer massage until you know the origin.

Likewise, the joints are made to work less and correctly by ensuring that the surrounding tissues are completely healthy.
  • Improved relaxation: you can apply the principles of acupressure therapy to trigger points to release energy in the parts of the body where you have discomfort.

To avoid complications, it is necessary to know first the type of pressure and movements you should do in these cases.
  • Promotes the elimination of toxins: whenever there is physical activity, there will be production of components in the body considered as toxins, which are expelled from the body through the bloodstream, sweat and urine. Often, the elimination of toxins is not completed after physical activity, therefore, massage with the hand hook contributes to a proper drainage of components that end up causing muscle fatigue.
  • Improves immune function: the immune nervous system and the body’s natural defenses also benefit from this pressure on the body that releases tensions and offers total relaxation. The entry and advance of viruses and bacteria will become more difficult when the body is completely healthy, with no injuries to deal with and without the body being focused on physical ailments to remain focused on the defense of the whole body.
