BONGERS Ancient Oriental Massage Tools
Bongers Ancient Oriental Massage Tool by Bongers of America, LLC
are traditional massage tools in Japan. They're good for breaking down muscle tension and stimulating circulation. Most people store tension in their neck and shoulders, and that's usually where BONGERS are most effective. However, they feel good all over (but don't hit the kidneys!), giving an invigorating, Shiatsu-like massage. Their flexible shafts do all the work, allowing the masseur/se to BONG indefinitely without trying. The Japanese call them magono te ("grandchild's hands"). They also call them, onomotopoetically, pon pons, after the sound they make when struck against imitation leather jackets. Eventually the learned doctors of the West discovered the principle behind Bongers, percussive massage. They named it tapotement. We simply say they work like meat tenderizers. HOW DO BONGERS WORK? For Sore Muscles, Headaches, Poor Circulation, Cellulite
BONGERS are traditional massage tools used all over the Orient. They are good for breaking down muscle tension and stimulating circulation. Almost everyone stores tension in their neck and shoulders- BONGERS are just about always effective in that area. However, BONGERS feel good all over (but don't hit the kidneys! - see diagram).
They give an invigorating, Shiatsu-like massage. Their flexible shafts do all the work, allowing the masseur/se to BONG indefinitely without effort. BACK PAIN:
The scientific name for the BONGERS percussion-like massage is tapotement. We prefer to explain it as the same principle as tenderizing meat. Most back pains are caused by over-worked muscles which contract suddenly (spasm), turning hard and knotty. This constricts the blood vessels that bring oxygen to the muscles and carry waste from them. Muscle cells start dying. You feel pain. That pain is your body crying HELP !! BONG ME !! HEADACHES
Nine out of ten headaches are caused by tight neck muscles. BONG the neck gently on both sides of the spine for 30 to 60 seconds and watch headaches disappear !! CELLULITE
Doctors say there's no such thing. Ask any woman over 30 and she'll tell you different! Actually, both are right; that cottage cheese effect comes simply from clogged capillaries that don't let blood circulate through them any more. As a local circulation agent, BONGERS work even better than exercise (though they are certainly no substitute for physical activity). They act like hydraulic pressurizes, forcing the blood back through. FOR FUN
BONG your friends and lovers; BONG yourself. After work or a workout. BONG the bottoms of your feet, your pectorals, your leg muscles, whenever it's sore. It's fun to close your eyes, put on some music and BONG your head - watch the pictures flow!!
How to BONG
Anyone can learn to BONG in about 5 seconds. The secret is in the grip. Don't hold the BONGERS just by the handles; place your thumbs or forefingers up on the flexible shafts. That way the shafts still do all the work, but you have better control and can make the BONGERS go faster (holding them by the handles is good for the bottoms of your feet, however, which like hard BONGING; or if you are a small person working on a huge back).
Practice by bouncing one on your arm. Feel good? Now you're ready to BONG your upper back. Just keep on bouncing, and walk the BONGER up over your shoulder. It is best to do your upper back this way, crossing over your chest to the opposite shoulder: it gives you the best angle, and the shoulder being BONGED is relaxed.
You can even BONG your lower back. Take both the BONGERS and place thumbs on the shafts. Turn them so the balls are facing out. Now reach behind, yourself and bend forward. Your thumbs are between the shafts and your body, right? OK, BONG away!!!
Of course, it's more fun to BONG someone else. If your weak hand can't keep the rhythm at first, BONG with both hands at once. It feels just as good to the BONGEE, and your weak hand will naturally keep pace. Over time your rhythm will improve, but rhythm isn't important to the BONGEE - she/he wants to feel the beat.
Most men, and many women, like to be BONGED fairly hard. But some backs are very tender. Start off slowly, and build up till the BONGEE says "Whoa. . ."

I had a set of these years ago and am so happy to find them again! They are the best massage tool if you like percussion. Fun for the person giving the massage, too, and their hands don't get tired so quickly.
I have used the bonger and the one I had was much nicer and less expensive than these. The metal handle was longer and the wooden handle bigger also. This is very deceiving on the website for it looks much bigger than it really is so you can't reach as far down the back.by yourself. I thought that was the purpose of the item so you could massage your back yourself.
Very disappointed. Ordering this was a big mistake.
Found it useful and easy to use.
Love the bongers and appreciate the expedient service/delivery. .
I have been using bongers in my practice for clients and for self care. Gotta have them.
