One of the most effective weapons in Japan's arsenal against fatigue after a hard, long day in the office are the various "tsubo-oshi" gadgets that break the muscle fiber "knots" that build up due to hours spent sitting in front of a computer. The Tsubo Gyutto Hand Massager from Akaishi, one of the most famous makers of these gadgets, is one of the best tsubo-oshi available in term of both look and functionality: it will make relief from muscle pain and cramps much easier, and you won't need to keep it hidden in your bathroom cabinet like a medical instrument!
Made of hard elastomer and available in two colors (mocha and black), the Tsubo Gyutto fits nicely in your palm thanks to its carefully designed shape that brings to mind a classic Japanese item like the bamboo whisk used in the tea ceremony. This combination of old and new allows this particular tsubo-oshi to blend seamlessly into any room at home or in the office, but make no mistake: this isn't just a pretty face! It will help you work out those tsubo (knots), especially after a warm bath, and guarantee a better sleep and an even better morning after.
