I Use the Acuball Regularly

By TSC Shopper

from Montreal

All Star Reviewer

I got the Acu-ball almost three years ago now and use it quite regularly. It really works to loosen tight muscles in my lower back. Thankfully, I don't have to much to complain about pain but I do get stiffness in my lower back and the acuball pressure points do the trick in loosening it up. Love that it is an all natural way to address stiffness of the muscles. I've used the small ball on my feet which can be tender, muscles are more on the surface on the feet but after some time turns into a massage. I am thinking of getting the other back model too. Will be using the acuball and acuback for years to come I am sure.

Awesome balls!

By Quatchi & Mukmuk

Silver Reviewer

The big ball is my holy grail and I love it so much I bought another sets! It gets rid of my knots on my shoulders/back and helps relieve pain on my arm. I got two sets, one for home and the other for the office.

By Annette

from Welland, Ontario

I suffer from fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. It has helped with the pain in my neck and shoulders. Every night before bed I heat the big acu ball for 1 minute and place it in the back at the base of my head where the neck joins. Amazing relief right away and I wake up fresh the next morning. My massage therapist has shown me ways to use the small balls to help my shoulders and arms. I use them as I sleep which makes it so convenient. If your suffer from pain it is worth a try. Truly amazing product.

Good stuff :)

By Quatchi & Mukmuk

from Vancouver, BC

Silver Reviewer

This Acuball is awesome! I bought two sets since the first time they were on TSC. It helps me to get rid of my knots in my back & my shoulders. I can use the ball when I am sitting on the chair, standing against the wall and when I am lying on my bed. Great quality as I have all 3 balls for years and are still in great shape. Thank you Dr. Cohen!

Can't live without it!



I have found such wonderful relief with this product. I have back, neck and hip problems and have been using the Acuball for over a year now. If you haven't used it before and your muscles are really tight then it will feel a little painful at first but if you persevere, the relief is unbelievable . When you take the Acuball out of the microwave it feels slightly warm but don't let that fool you as the heat keeps building as you use it and seeps into your tight muscles. I won't travel without it! Even without heating I find relief. I just bought a second one for my son who was having back problems. I would recommend this product to everyone with pain issues....it's amazing!

Could Not Use

By Kathleen

from Nova Scotia

Gold Reviewer

I purchased this last year as I have back problems. I tried it a number of times but it was just too hard. I tried getting used to it but to no avail. I threw it out.
I see that there are some great reviews. I'm glad to see that it worked for some.
Any chance of making the balls softer?

Bronze Reviewer

This certainly earned, and deserves each star! I have been using this for months now, and thought it was time to review. If used on a regular basis, this will/does exactly what it claims to. So impressed with the results, I have returned to purchase the Acuback, as it will target that region better than the ball.
Thank You.. Dr. Michael.

I cannot live without my Acuball


from Sudbury, Ontario

Helpful Reviewer

I purchased the Acuball when it first came out and have been using it ever since. I have chronic neck and back pain with massive headaches. The Acuball assists in providing some of the relief needed for me to survive exacerbations of the discomfort. It helps me to be able to fall asleep when otherwise I would not be able. The heat reaches deep into the trigger points when everything else I have tried does not. It is simple to learn to use and I would highly recommend it to others. I like the smaller balls to reach deep into some trigger points - I just wish the smaller balls could be made to be heated as well. I am ordering a second set! Thank you for its creation - it has literally saved me from great agony.

No longer a skeptic.

By Lindy

from British Columbia

I have chronic back problems and have found this product to be most helpful in relieving lower back and shoulder pain & tightness. The CD was most helpful and the book well written giving great instructions on how to use. I also used the large ball when I woke up with a bad headache, massaging my head, face and neck. I could hardly believe it relieved it. This item will be well used in this house.

Not sure....

By Love Clothes

from Mississauga

Top 10 Reviewer

Purchased the kit primarily as a computer-user.

First off, the instructions in the kit are contradictory. On the one hand, one insert states "NEVER MICROWAVE" and on the other hand, another insert states "Two Ways to Heat Your Acuball" and then proceeds to state that the ACUBACK (I purchased the Acuball) can be either microwaved or boiled.

So which is it?

Haven't used it enough to comment on effectivess, but will follow up at some point.
