Some people have found a cheaper alternative to expensive massages. People have started using different power tools such as a car buffer and modified jigsaw to massage muscles. Downside of this practice is that some experts think it is not as safe as a trained masseuse. Obviously a car buffer cannot feel anomalies in the muscle tissue. Some manufacturers of these tools have agreed that safety is a concern as this was not their intended use. However, to many it is a method they are not giving up soon.
- Some trainers and coaches adapt power tools to massage sore and damaged muscles.
- Car buffers and filed down jigsaws are among the tools that can be adapted to treat sore and aching muscles.
- A representative from the power tool industry says power tools are not meant to be used in this manner, and those who adapt power tools agree that focusing on safety is key.
