Twin Ball Massager...Just Meh.
I have a really bad back due to multiple back surgeries, & get terrible muscle spasms in my shoulder/upper back area. Usually, I have my poor husband massage the area by rolling tennis or golf balls on the knots, using tons of pressure..,for a long time.. Bless his heart, he's willing. but rarely gets the right area, & tires quickly, because I need strong pressure.
I bought this in hopes that I would be able to use it on my own, at the pressure I prefer. Sadly, my high hopes were dashed when I opened iI the box. I knew right then that it wouldn't work for me'
1. The handle is much too short to effectively use it on yourself, & your back, it's roughly 6''.
2. Rolling it up & down, while using even the slightest pressure, is just awkward & difficult, at best. Warning for long-haired users-pull your hair up or it will get tangled up in the roller. Ouch! Also, you can't really just do it over clothing for a few minutes, as it gets caught up in your shirt , too.
3. Even when another person is using the roller on you, I never felt like it could achieve good pressure.
1. It's attractive, sturdy and made out of rich looking dark wood. You could make a nice gift by adding it to one of the Body Shops great massage oils, and perhaps another spa or aromatherapy product like a relaxing bath salt, body butter or one of the other massagers.
It just didn't do it for me..so, if you have similar needs and are looking for a product to help, you should pass on this massager. I'm still looking, and using the good old tennis & golf balls, plus my dear husband. :-) Good luck!

Not enough pressure
I bought this to replace my "handy" massager which broke after several good years of use. I get sore muscles in my back a lot and I like to work them over with a massage tool.
The problem with the twin ball massager is that the pressure needs to be equally distributed on both sides for it to function It's really difficult to do that when you're massaging, for example, your own back. I end up putting a lot of pressure on one side only to really dig it into a sore muscle, and then it doesn't function as well as it's supposed to. The wood on my product now clicks.
If you like light massages this is probably a good tool for you, otherwise go for the handy massager or even a battery powered massager by another brand.
