How the Body Back Buddy Works
The Body Back Buddy’s open design and natural shape allow you to
reach all muscle groups of the body: back, neck, shoulders, chest, arms,
hands, buttocks, hips, legs and feet. By varying the amount of pressure
applied and the angle at which it is directed, you can release tight,
spastic, knotted muscles. You control the amount of pressure and determine the exact spot that requires treatment. Even with minimal strength
and effort you can treat areas that are virtually impossible to reach
without the Body Back Buddy.

How to Use Your Body Back Buddy
Hook the Body Back Buddy over your shoulder or around your side to treat
hard to reach areas of the back, neck and shoulders. Hold it comfortably
by the handles or the frame so that the therapy knob touches the
affected muscle. Push away from your body with your lower or outside
hand while guiding the therapy knob with the upper or inside hand.
This leveraging technique creates self-directed pressure to the targeted
muscle. You can also use the Body Back Buddy to apply healing pressure
to many other parts of the body such as your legs, arms, feet, chest
and hips. It’s versatility allows you to approach each muscle from many
angles in creative ways.
Use the photos in this guide to give you good ideas on how to reach
all parts of your body, but please don’t limit yourself to the positions
shown! Since there are hundreds of ways to use the Body Back Buddy
take a moment to experiment and find out what works best for you.
Use it standing, sitting, lying down, or with a partner. Visit our website
for more in depth instruction.
How Much Pressure to Apply
Place the therapy knob on the sore muscle and apply what you consider
to be a comfortable amount of pressure. When this muscle compression
is released it stimulates a therapeutic response. Pressure preferences
vary from one person to another—deep and intense, or gentle and
relaxing. However, only apply as much pressure as you feel comfortable
with. More pressure is not necessarily better!
How Long to Apply Pressure
Ten to thirty seconds is normally enough time to elicit a therapeutic
response in the muscle. Applying too much pressure for too long causes
the body to treat the pressure as an intrusion. For maximum results
return to the treated area three to four times each session.
The Healing Process
Restoring health to dysfunctional muscles is a step-by-step process.
The first step entails releasing the muscle’s tightness and hyper contraction. This is the purpose of the Body Back Buddy. After you release
the muscle, you should then stretch and hydrate it so that is can regain
its natural strength, elasticity and pliability. For long-term muscle health
and strength, exercise and stretching are crucial. Finally, it is important
to correct the improper body mechanics and/or poor posture that
can contribute to muscular problems.
Trigger Points
Trigger points are tight, tender contracted muscle fibers, which emit
pain. Applying sustained pressure with the Body Back Buddy to a trigger
point causes the pain-spasm cycle to be interrupted. When the pressure
is released, you will feel the muscle let go as fresh oxygenated blood
rushes in to cleanse the tissue releasing the muscle contraction.
Visit our website for more detailed explanation of trigger points and
reflexology points and how to treat them.

Reflexology is an ancient science practiced by most cultures based on
the premise that there are points in the feet that relate to every organ
and all parts and systems of the body. Applying pressure with the Body
Back Buddy to these reflex areas results in the reduction of stress,
which in turn promotes positive changes in the body.
