Thumbsavers is an affordable massage tool that assists therapists by providing support and reducing the stress on your joints and wrists from deeper tissue massages, while protecting your most valuable assets: your thumbs and hands! Thumbsavers is so unique that it cannot be called a “tool” because your thumbs and fingers are actually inside them. Thumbsavers has the right sensitivity & mobility that separates it from other tools. Fatigue thumb, fingers, and wrist pain will be no longer a problem.

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.
