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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good stuff :)
By Quatchi & Mukmuk
from Vancouver, BC
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
from Nova Scotia
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?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

FINALLY! THE REAL DEAL.
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
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.
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.

By Love Clothes
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.
was skeptical, but changed my mind
By Little Red Hen
from Port Alberni, BC
I thought the Acuball was probably a lot of hype but I liked the idea of having something that could loosen those tight knots in my back and shoulder, so I ordered it.What a difference! I place the small ball between my back and the wall and gently work it up and down over the tight muscle and after a few minutes the tightness is gone--and so it the pain! I have also used the large ball by lying on my stomach on the carpet and placing the ball under my navel to give wonderful relief to low back pain.I would definitely recommend this product.

Private Masseur On Call
from Hamilton, Ontario
Having pulled a lower back & glute muscle I was hurting. After the medication ended I supplemented my healing with the heatable ball. It just hit the spot and I could control the pressure easily. Great for tense muscles anywhere. Will definitely travel with the small Accuball.
