This is a good stick for applying pressure to muscles. I have used on my legs with great success. It does take some work to get the calves, but you just have to move around a little. If you have a partner - they can work out your arms or other areas more easily. It is soft, but not too soft - you still get that deep pressure
Great massager! It does the job! Its bendable, flexible and easy to use. Nordic Track is definitely a great brand to purchase. I would highly recommend this item.
I have used this type of product before but branded differently. I expected this to be functionally similar to the others I've tried. It definitely did not turn out to be the case. The roller part on the massage wand would not roll and barely turned. self use, partner use, position, pressure, direction, angle etc. did not make any difference in the way it felt when used. It felt like a bumpy hard stick does being rolled on my back. Even though it was a very low cost item, I would not buy it again if I had the opportunity.
