Acuforce® Soft Tissue Therapy Tools
Athletic trainers often focus on ice and heat to keep athletes in prime athletic condition. Recently, however, a new technique has been added to athletic training and physical therapy regimens. Massage therapy, now used by osteopaths, chiropractors, athletic trainers, and physical therapists in addition to massage therapists, is gaining increasing support as a means to strengthen muscles, prevent injury, and repair muscle damage.
Acuforce® Soft Tissue Therapy Tools, used for therapeutic massage, are ideal for muscle stripping, trigger point therapy, reflexology, and cross-fiber friction techniques. Whether treating an athlete who has completed a tough workout or a person who suffers from Sciatica, Acuforce® Soft Tissue Therapy Tools are an ideal way to give patients the deep tissue therapy they need.
The Shining Star of Massage Therapy
Massage Star™ is the newest addition to the Acuforce® family. Available in a standard 11 oz. size as well as the XL (16 oz.) for larger hands, the Massage Star™ is three tools in one. The Wedge, on the top of the star, is perfect for muscle stripping and cross-fiber friction. The wide and narrow points, meanwhile, are ideal for trigger point therapy and reflexology.
The Massage Star™ can be used by a professional, but it is also great for self-use. It's small enough that it can easily fit into a pocket or a purse. Massage Star™ also can be used with massage creams and oils.

Ice Cold Treatment, Warm Hands
The Acuforce® 3.0i is a three-pound tool that applies pressure in addition to the benefits of a large ice surface for long-lasting benefits. The padded handle of the tool allows the therapist to work with the patient while keeping the hands warm. The weight of the tool itself eliminates the need for the therapist to use arm and hand strength to apply healing pressure.
Acuforce® 7.0 and Acuforce® 2.5:
Under pressure can be a good thing
The Acuforce® 7.0
The Acuforce® 7.0 is the perfect tool for muscle stripping, cross-fiber friction, and trigger point therapy. The seven-pound Acuforce® 7.0 saves strain on the therapists arms, hands, and fingers while giving the patient all of the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy by using its own weight to apply pressure. Made of a unique material that feels as comfortable as a therapist's hand, the Acuforce® 7.0 works well with lotions and oils.

The Acuforce® 2.5
Like the Acuforce® 7.0, the Acuforce 2.5 uses its own weight (2.5 pounds) to apply pressure, saving wear and tear on the therapist's arms, hands, and fingers. This tool is effective for muscle stripping and cross-fiber friction therapies. The Acuforce® 2.5 will benefit the patient by creating an ideal amount of pressure for deep tissue massage therapy while not exhausting the therapist.
