- Sore Muscles
- Poor Circulation
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?
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!
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!
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.
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!
