My favorite things Issue 1: Backnobber II a.k.a. the Forever Alone Massager
I love things, especially things that are well made. In fact, I love things so much, I decided to start a new series right here on icanthascheezburger just to tell you about a few of these things. I don’t get any kickbacks from any of the things I recommend (check the links for affiliate codes; there aren’t any!). They’re just things I love and use almost every day.
The Forever Alone Massager, as I lovingly call my Backnobber II, is just fantastic. Working at a desk can lead to some knots in hard to reach places on my back, and even if I can reach them, I can’t really apply the kind of pressure needed to really get those knots worked out just by contorting my arms to reach my back.
The Forever Alone Massager takes care of that neatly by giving you two different sized hooks you can use to reach your back with ease. The wider hook reaches more places on your back, but the smaller hook has less give, allowing for a really intense, deep massage of the neck and shoulders.
At $30 (on Amazon) it isn’t super cheap but it’s very well designed and durable, being made of a fiberglass reinforced nylon. Put together the massager is kind of big but it comes apart into two pieces which can easily fit in a backpack.
My only complaint about it is that if I’m pulling really hard (and I mean really hard) the massager will sometimes pull apart into two pieces. If this is a concern the company that makes these also sells their original one which is made of metal and is a single piece (I’m thinking about getting that one too, just so I have one at work and at home).
