Bongers Massage Tool / Pair of 2 by Bongers

Pound away office tension with the flick of a wrist. Each pair of Bongers is designed with a flexible shaft and soft rubber ball for an invigorating, Shiatsu-like massage.

Color may vary (blue or green)

Ideal For...
• Sore Muscles
• Headaches
• Poor Circulation
• Cellulite

Bongers are traditional massage tools all over the Orient. They're good for breaking down muscle tension and stimulating circulation. Most everyone stores tension in their neck and shoulders, and Bongers are just about always effective there. However, they feel good all over (but don't hit the kidneys!), giving an invigorating, Shiatsu-like massage. Their flexible shafts do all the work, allowing the masseur/se to BONG indefinitely without effort.

How do Bongers work?
  • Back Pain
    The scientific name for Bongers' percussion-like massage is tapotement. We prefer to explain it as the same principle as tenderizing meat. Most back pains are caused by over-worked muscles which contract suddenly (spasm), turning hard and knotty. This constricts the blood vessels that bring oxygen to the muscles and carry waste from them. Muscle-cells start dying. You feel pain. That pain is your body crying, HELP! BONG ME!
  • Headaches
    Nine out of ten headaches are caused by tight neck muscles. BONG the neck gently on both sides of the spine for 30-60 seconds and watch headaches disappear!
  • Cellulite
    Doctors say there's no such thing. Ask any woman over 30 and she'll tell you different! Both are right, actually: that cottage cheese effect comes simply from clogged capillaries that don't let blood circulate through them any more. As a local circulation agent, Bongers work even better than exercise (though they're certainly no substitute). They act like hydraulic pressurizers, forcing the blood back through.
  • For Fun
    BONG your friends and lovers; BONG yourself. After work or a workout, BONG the bottoms of your feet, your pectorals, your leg muscles, wherever it's sore. It's fun to close your eyes, put on some music and BONG your head - watch the pictures flow!
Warnings: Don't BONG the kidneys.

How to BONG:

Anyone can learn to BONG in about 5 seconds. The secret is in the grip. Don't hold the Bongers just by the handles; place your thumbs or forefingers up on the flexible shafts. That way the shafts still do all the work, but you have better control and can make the Bongers go faster. (Holding them by the handles is good for the bottoms of your feet, which like hard BONGING, or if you're a small person working on a huge back.)

Practice by bouncing one on your arm. Feel good? Now you're ready to BONG your upper back. Just keep on bouncing, and walk the Bonger up over your shoulder. It's best to do your upper back this way, crossing over your chest to the opposite shoulder: it gives you the best angle, and the shoulder being BONGED is relaxed.

You can even BONG your lower back. Take both the Bongers and place your thumbs on the shafts. Turn them so the balls are facing out. Now reach behind yourself and bend forward. Your thumbs are between the shafts and your body, right? OK, BONG away!

Of course, it's more fun to BONG someone else. If your weak hand can't keep the rhythm at first, BONG with both hands at once. It feels just as good to the BONGEE, and your weak hand will naturally keep pace. Over time your rhythm will improve, but rhythm isn't important to the BONGEE - s/he just wants to feel the beat.

Most men, and many women, like to be BONGED fairly hard. But some backs are very tender. Start off slowly, and build up till the BONGEE says Whoa.
