Wooden massaging tools are used by professionals and amateurs alike. They are often portable, and are therefore convenient for a quick massage. Wooden massage tools are widely available online and at bath-and-body stores. Use of wood massage tools is not new; they were used in ancient Chinese medicinal practices. Some of today's wooden massaging tools were designed, in part, as a result of ancient acupressure practices.

Wooden Stick

Chinese medicine holds that in the sole of the foot, nerves that run to the internal organs gather together. This is why foot reflexology is widely practised in areas of China. It is also practised in some parts of the United States. One of the tools used to perform reflexology is a wooden stick. The reflexologist rubs the stick along the top and bottom of the foot, along with oils and creams, to relieve pain and stiffness and increase circulation throughout the body.

Wooden Foot Massager

The wooden foot massager has two rows of vertical rollers that enable you to roll your feet across them to stimulate the reflexology points in the soles. This device was used in ancient times to relieve soreness and stimulate energy levels. The device is quiet and portable so you can take it anywhere you go, and it stores easily under the bed or in a cabinet. You can use it while you work at your desk or when you are trying to relax at home.

Wooden Massage Spider

The wooden massage spider consists of a wood ball that has several wooden legs, each having a smaller wood ball at the end. You can use the spider to massage just about any part of the body by holding it in your hand and rubbing the affected area. The wooden massage spider also helps to remove dead skin as it massages. The spider is small enough to fit in a backpack or large purse, and may be designed to look like a bug such as a spider or ladybug.

Body Bead Massager

Derived from massage techniques in Japan, the body bead massaging tool comes in various designs, all based on the same concept. The body bead massager is primarily used on the thigh, shoulder, back and neck regions. The beads are held together by woven rope with a handle on each end. To massage an area, place one handle in each hand and roll the beads over your body.
