I bought these years ago after I'd read some industry type say that she uses them on Christina Aguilera and how wonderful they are. My family is obsessed with these and yes you do have to sort of get the correct rhythm going. One of my friends I recommended them to bought them and said her, her husband and her teenage son fight over them; many of my visiting family members have also bought themselves a pair after trying mine out. Such a good feeling! As far as people saying they hurt, what are you doing with them?!? I'm very sensitive and very much a wuss for all things painful and I find Bongers to be nothing but enjoyable!

This is the biggest waste of money. After many tries, I still can't figure out what is the supposed great benefit of Bongers. They hurt even when using them lightly, they are awkward to use, and they leave a most awful burnt rubber smell on your skin and clothes. Ancient Oriental Massage? More like a strange concoction of dog toys and bits and pieces from a hardware store. This was a HUGE disappointment and waste of time and money.

    I really did love my bongers… I did have these for a few years my girlfriend hadd a sore back like I do and I went and got one of my bongers and she tried and loved it I did give her one of my bonges uses it each morning…Sadly the one I had broke while in mid use it went flying across the gym… I have tried glueing it and all nothing has worked for me So here I am today for a new set maybe this set will last longer than my last one…I can only use one at a time so I am so hoping this works this time and dosen't break again….

    these are wonderful if you use them correctly,,,you can hit just about any part f your back you want to and they really work really easy and RELIEVE THE PAOM AND relax me they also hey also help with your circulation spelling I am sorry

    They are just plain very useful in any way if you ask me they are pricy but they are worth it if you only have to purchase it once…

    just try them you wont be sorry you'll be glad tjat upi did give it a chance…

    Comments about Bongers Ancient Oriental Massage Tools, 1 pr:

    I bought these on a whim after reading another reviewer talk about how she bought them for her boyfriend who's had a car wreck and has metal plates now... Because my husband's story is almost exactly the same and I can't get all the knots out of his shoulders/back with my hands.So I figured I'd get them as a present for hubby at Christmas, if nothing else, as a funny gift. But everyone in our house loves to use them! My husband loves them b/c they really do help with all his tense muscles and the knots in his back. I love them b/c they help get rid of the tension in my shoulders and neck. I wish we'd come across these things a lot sooner b/c they are great!The only downside to them is that they make me a little nervous about the way they're constructed-like they might not last years and years. But since they're only about $22.50 it's not that bad. But I wouldn't pay more than this for this kind of quality. Other than that, they're awesome!

      The device isn't particularly comfortable to use, I personally love it, but some people find it uncomfortable, however, the effect is amazing. It's not like a standard massage, but when used properly it really helps your muscles relax. I bought it for my girlfriend to use on me, because she does not have the hand strength to massage me for long, but this device eliminates the problem. You can also use it on yourself, I use it on my neck, shoulders, traps, and between my shoulder blades. After a minute or so of use, I can feel the tension leaving my muscles. Definitely worth the price, even if it doesn't work, you're only out $20 or so. I'd highly advise it to anyone with a tense neck or back, or with knots. Cheers.

      I suffer from fibro and bursitis that causes very painful knots in back, legs, arms, neck, ect. This are great at working out knots, and getting circulation going again. Relieves pain without taking a pill that may have unwelcome side effects. These are awesome, and you don't need to be a professional massage therapist to use them.

      my bf has two metal rods in his body two plates and two screws from multiple car accidents. usually it is very tireing to massage him i have small hands so it hurts after a while and im not so effictive. batteries are expensive so battery powered nmassagers run out in one use. nothing ever works and i hate not being able to help him when hes in pain. i used these bongers the night i got them afetr he worked on a roof all day long. he said "ILL NEVER USE ANYTHING ELSE!"100% better. no drugs have ever made him feel better. this is amazing! thank you so much, my only complaint is there is a little netal piece sticking out of the handle i was expecting it to look like the picture they look used?? but if it makes him feel better idc!! :)

      I use these for the tension in my neck when sitting at the computer. I saw them over 10 years ago but could never find them. I saw them offered at another site but they cost a lot more. When I shopped around, this was the best price. One of mine was broken, the collar came off, but I repaired it myself. Very happy I got them.

      First the bad news. The metal rings on both the handles of both Bongers were loose, completely off [...] Easy repair job with the right adhesive. Ball material slightly gouged. Had there been no minor flaws I would have given them 5 stars!No big problem. Now the good news.THEY ARE FANTASTIC!!, I healed a painful shin splint very quickly say 2 days.Very relaxing too. I went a 3 plus mile hike this weekend, I brought along my pair of Bongers . I bonged both before and after my hike.Felt great and I really had a spring in my step both before and after my hike. If you can overlook some very minor flaws, I urge you to buy a pair. Walker or not you simply won't regret it!
