Body Vibes is a flexible, tubelike massager you can manipulate over sore, hard-to-reach muscles in much the same way you use a bath towel to dry your back. The lightweight massager, which is 46 inches long and three inches around, pulsates at two speeds. It's quiet, so you can drape it around your neck or wrap it around your waist while sitting in the office, or while on a plane or a train. You can even tie a loop in it and massage a sore leg.
