About Back Buddy
Yogi and wellness professional, Jennifer Beyt Coffin, began working with her client, John Turley, after his second back surgery in 2002 following some serious injuries. The key to John's recovery and overall health relied heavily on increasing his flexibility and mobility. Through his yoga practice with Jennifer, John's condition improved and he could significantly eliminate his pain as his muscles loosened and gained more flexibility. Jennifer began each yoga session with John by placing two tennis balls in a sock and would have John lie on these as a way to loosen up his stiff back muscles. This simple homemade tool was the most effective way for him to ease tension from his lower back and hips. That was Jennifer and John’s 'ah ha!' moment - why didn't that tool already exist?
From that day, Jennifer and John set out to create a solution and so was born the Back Buddy! Their goal in inventing the Back Buddy was to create an easy to use, portable, economical, trigger point massage tool that worked, and didn't require expensive equipment or intimidating or complicated pressure levels. The Back Buddy is a patented, portable trigger point massage tool that eliminates pain and tension from the back, neck, and any part of the body that gets stiff and tight from working, exercising, and everyday activities. Simply place the Back Buddy on the back of a chair or on the floor and sit and lean back or lie down and instantly feel your pain melt away. From your desk, to your car, to the gym, the Back Buddy will be your best friend!
