A few months ago, I posted asking if anyone had used the Finnhook massage tool. I didn't get any answers, but I did eventually buy the tool, and it was the best money I ever spent. I wanted to let people know. I'm not affiliated with Finnhook in any way; just copied the product description below from Amazon.com. But I get a lot of shoulder and upper back pain, in the spots I can never reach, and this tool has been wonderful because I can loosen my tight muscles by myself without straining and wriggling to rub the right spots. If I had it to do again I wouldn't buy the roller tool I also purchased, but I wish I'd bought the Finnhook years ago. Any of you who get neck and back pain, chec it out.
Invented in Finland, The FinnHook is an accupressure self-massager that allows you to treat sore and tight muscles, even in hard to reach areas.

I will have to look into this, thanks! My husband uses this golf ball massager that's attached to a stick that you can use to massage the back of the neck and on your back in general. You could probably make your own using super glue and golf balls. He says it works great. Link is below:
