Created from the ground up, this massage therapy, deep tissue & trigger point tool wasn’t possible until recent mold technologies allowed us to produce a multi-depth product that provides the structural rigidity to protect your thumb, wrist and joints while providing an enhanced feedback experience so that you can feel the tissue that you are working on. It also has improved venting for greater breathability, a comfort fit opening that is softer and more flexible, and an ergonomic shape that mimics the lines and curves of your thumb. Over 500,000 Thumbsaver Classics have been sold during the last 13 years, and all of the feedback and feature requests have been incorporated in this new advanced design.
Not only one of the best ‘tools’ for Massage Therapists, the Thumbsavers Advance is also used by Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Athletic / Personal Trainers, Shiatsu / Acupressure Practitioners, Trigger Point Specialist, Dentists, and Other Practitioners. We have even been approached by the ropers association to help cowboys protect their thumbs during roping competitions.
Technically, we don’t think of this as a tool because it is worn, not held, truly making it unique. Small, lightweight, and portable, the Thumbsavers Advance should be in your pain relieving and self care bag of tricks.

Thumbsavers is developed by Greg Polins, a massage therapist. After eight years, Greg began to experience crippling pain in my thumbs and wrist from the extensive deep tissue massage. He sought for a solution or his career would have been over. Polins said, “My thumbs were so fatigued from a full day of massage that I was forced to ice them every night. At one point the pain was so intense that it was difficult to hold a pen and write. I needed a solution or my career would have been over.”
After considerable experimentation and countless prototypes, Polins developed an affordable massage tool that assists therapists by providing support and reducing the stress on their hands and wrists from deep tissue massage, all while protecting their most valuable commodity — their hands. The tool is “worn” over the thumb, providing a greater sense of dexterity for the user. Since it’s smooth in texture, semi-flexible and latex-free, it feels natural for both the therapist and the receiving client. The design helps the therapist use “proper hand mechanics” when performing massage, thus reducing the chance for fatigue, pain and injury. “I felt such an immediate result from using it that I decided to bring it into production and share it with fellow therapists; all I needed was money to get started, so I sold everything I owned except essential clothes and my massage table.” Before Thumbsavers massage tools, the typical career length of a professional massage therapist was estimated to be three to five years. Thumb, hand and wrist fatigue and injury were dramatically claiming rewarding massage careers.
