Product review by Sharon @ all natural health-


    I was in a little health store in Redondo Beach, California when I saw my first Backnobber®.  I had some time to kill while I waited for a massage appointment next door, and I decided to wander aimlessly around this little store to my heart's content.  If I hadn't seen the photo of the gal using this weird looking object, I wouldn't  have had a clue how to use it.  But when I saw the picture, I thought, "Hmmm, I'll give it a try".  So I hooked one end over my shoulder and started manipulating it into the areas of my back that were screaming out "Me next!".  I thought, "Wow!  This really works!  Finally, a tool that gives you the power to put pressure where you want it, and exactly how you want it."

     So I bought one and took it all the way home to Pennsylvania.  It wasn't too long after I returned home that I read the label and discovered that this wonderful back tool was made in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania, about 20 minutes away!  I found that to be very interesting and decided to look into the matter further.  I paid a visit to where the Backnobber is made, and met the inventor.  I found his story to be absolutely fascinating.

     It seems that while driving a long daily drive to Washington, D.C. one day, the inventor picked up his umbrella from his back seat. Using the handle, he  began adding pressure to his back where he was sore, and as they say, the rest is history.  He worked on his idea, and designed a metal stick that is curved like an "S" that has two wooden knobs at both ends.  The knobs are each a slightly different size for different pressure.  By holding the knob in the front with both hands, the user can add pressure to the side of each vertebra and do an entire pressure point massage up and down the spine on both sides.  Once you work with it awhile, your body seems to take over and send it where it needs to go.  It really is an amazing tool.

     During my visit at the Pressure Positive company, I also found out that I had bought the older model of the backnobber, The Original Backnobber®.  There has been an improvement since then.  The new version, The Original Backnobber II®, is made of a hardened material that is now molded in two parts that disassemble for easy travel.  I actually enjoy the new version better for it's stable quality and feel.  There are four lovely colors to choose from, I like the mint green and magenta the best.  This is a tool that is more than just a gimmick.  If you are in an occupation where your back muscles get strained throughout the day, and you wish that there was someone around to rub your shoulders for relief, you will love this handy self-help tool.  There have been several knock-offs of this product, but this is the original, and is now being sold around the world.  I don't know why I had to go all the way to California to find mine, but I'm so glad that I found it!


    By the way... I realize that the material of this product is not all-natural.  But the fact that you are not ingesting any un-natural ingredients, makes this a natural remedy to pain.  If you are opposed to the polymer composite, you will enjoy The Original Backnobber® , which is made out of steel and wood. ($30.95)
