Massage Tools

Get Hooked

When you’ve got a knot in your back, a kink in your neck, or a sore leg muscle, sometimes the best remedy is to work it out on your own—with a little help from PTFit.

PTFit’s massagers have a peculiar shape, but there’s no mystery about their effectiveness. They’re designed to help you apply just the right amount of pressure in just the right spot. When you can’t get to a massage therapist, PTFit’s massagers can relieve muscle
tension and soreness, even in hard-to-reach areas.

PTFit’s original massager is the Finnhook, a rigid, hook-shaped tool that’s ideal for treating trigger points, or knots in the muscle. It was developed by Jukka Heininen, who wanted to give people who suffer from neck and shoulder pain a way to massage those areas on their own. PTFit founder Dale Niggemann, who’s an engineer with an interest in wellness, discovered Finnhook in Finland and brought the design to the U.S.

For more versatile massage options, Dale modified the Finnhook to create the PTFit Multi-Roller, which adds rollers to the design. The sturdy handle lets you control where you roll the massage wheels—on your neck, shoulders, back, calves, thighs, and anywhere else you need relief. Both tools are made in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, from birch plywood, and they’re foldable for easy transport.

Whether you’re nursing a nagging injury, experiencing muscle fatigue after a tough workout, or simply unwinding after a long day, the Finnhook and Multi-Roller give you the leverage you need to roll, relax, and recover.

Grommet Launch Conversation

  • Dale

    I am so happy to see that the Mayan Gods still want us around and that the Daily Grommet wants to feature our PTFit massage products for the start of the New Year. So, now we can all start to relax again with the PTFit massage tools. Turn on your portable waterfall with some nice relaxing music and create a spa experience in your house. Image all your stress disappearing and clear your mind of any thoughts. If a thought comes through your mind, imagine that thought floating on a raft out of your conscious mind. Now take your PTFit massage tools and massage those tight muscles. When you feel a tight muscle, hold the PTFit Massage tool on it for 15-30 seconds-- while you are holding the PTFit massage tool on it, take a deep breath and gradually exhale while imaging the tight muscle totally relaxing. Please, enjoy your gift of life that the Mayan gods gave us for another year and remember nothing is more important than sharing our life on earth with other people. I am here to share my time with you today and answer any question you may have on our product, so don’t be shy. Please ask me any questions you may have on our PTFit Products.

    Finally, something to message yourself, correctly. Frankly, I am tired of using my knuckles when I want a quick massage. In addition, to add to Mr. Niggemann comment - I do not think a Mayan god had anything to do with us still being here; but our Creator, God, that is why we are still here..when the system of things will end on his time table.

    I used a product called the Theracane for many years, to relieve back and glute pain caused by compensating for a bad hip. Same principle: Providing leverage to work on knotted trigger points. I like that this product is made of wood, and it offers more flexibility than the Theracane. My comment is just to let people know that these devices DO work, and are especially good for trigger-point release.
