Well, when you're getting older, it seems you either have more maladies or injuries. But we have found a need for some sort of massager that gets the job done.
I have had tendonitis chronically in my upper right arm, neck and shoulder area. You can't always find your husband or kids available to give you a quick massage, or even be able to hit just the right area. So, the Brookstone Thera Spa has helped me tremendously. Compared to some of the more heavy duty type massagers, this one isn't as heavy or cumbersone and my arm doesn't get tired holding it.
It has an extra long handle that curves and can be turned or bent whichever direction to give you the help you need. Especially when the muscles or the left or right lower back need a quick massage, it does it. It has different surfaces on it for different areas. I have found that some don't work as well for the bottom of the foot or the very back or the neck. It comes with 3 separate speeds. But when you need to have a little more power to work out a knotted muscle, you have a lot of power to choose from . If not, all you have to do is to push the TURBO button and it makes the TheraSpa increase the amount of power you need to work it out.
