    in my lineage of wing chun i've been taught some pressure point massages that really help. however with sore hands/tendons it makes it near impossible to massage my wrists, hands, shoulders etc without causing further pain.

    any devices/tools for massaging pressure points that are not gimmics?

    often i slap instead, which helps but doesnt seem to help my hands as much as the massage (circular massage, for 9 breaths)

    How do you normally massage or what would you like to use?

    A nice hard tennis ball works wonders. Just rest your weight on it and move around until you get the right area. There are specific devices out there for this but a tennis ball will do the job just as good inmost cases.

    For massages areas of your hands and or arms where you would normally use your fingers just get a pen or something similar with a rounded cap and use that. I've got a sharpie pen in front of me that looks like it'll do the job well.

    hmm i'd like to find something a bit more sophisticated but good ideas!

    rub, with your thumb in a circular motion:
    back of wrist, wrist, between thumb/finger, forearm, tricepish area, back of shoulder/neck

    -9 breath cycles
