Hand-L is an innovative professional massage tool designed for trigger point work, for deep tissue massage or for simple relaxation massage.
Made of hand-finished stoneware clay in an attractive “earthtone” color, glazed at client contact areas for comfort, unglazed on the gripping surface to provide safe, slip-free control even if you have oil on your hands.
The updated glaze finish on the client contact surfaces has slightly more “drag” than the original to provide better control when working with lubricant on the skin.
