The Vibrating Peanut Massage Ball may look weird, but it's a muscle reliever like no other

For those looking for muscle pain relief, you may have to get crafty about the type of equipment you buy to get the specific help you seek. While pieces like foam rollers and massage balls have their uses to speed up muscle recovery from workouts and even improve muscle performance, they may not be able to help those trying to soothe other problems, such as an aching back.

For your back, a foam roller is often too big and a massage ball gets tough to maneuver to hit just the right spots. That's where the unique shape of a massager like the Vibrating Peanut Massage Ball can be just the perfect tool for muscle relief in your back and body.

Made by Rolling With It, this peanut massage ball uses pressure and vibration to dig into sore and aching tissue to stimulate and relax your muscles and fascia to work out tensions and strains. Unlike traditional massage balls, the unusual shape of the Vibrating Peanut means it doesn't move around much, offering a more control focus on your problem areas. 

Meanwhile, the shape also perfectly cradles along the spine, arching around the backbone to pulse directly into the connecting tissue on either side. The thick silicone covering also ensures outstanding elasticity, thermal stability, and just the right amount of padding when rolling.

The professional grade motor inside the Vibrating Peanut helps effectively localize the pinpoint deep tissue massage, with four intensity levels capable of working muscles, ligaments or tendons in the back and neck, forearms, shoulders, triceps,hamstrings and feet.

The Peanut's design makes it effective when used against a wall, the floor, or even a couch or recliner. No matter how you decide to use it, it's a powerful weapon against tension and tightness as it breaks up chronic pain and increases blood flow and flexibility.

And Vibrating Peanut users are happy, with nearly 300 Amazon reviewers pushing it to a solid 4.5 out of 5 star rating.

Usually priced at $99, the Vibrating Peanut Massage Ball is now available at more than 40 percent off at just $56.99.
