How do I choose the BackHug setting that's right for me?

You can adjust settings for strength, speed, treatment area, duration, back length and more - it's easy!

Everybody’s back is different

Because we know that, we designed BackHug so you can adjust all the important aspects of your treatment to suit what your back needs at any given time. Adjusting the settings is as easy as a few taps or slides on your phone. Please experiment until you find what's right for you. And it's also a good idea to revisit your settings from time to time to make sure you still have the right ones.


Strength highlight-1

You can use the App to adjust how strongly the fingers press your back - just like the volume on your music. What's more, you can choose different strength levels for different treatment areas - neck, upper back, lower back and shoulder blades - depending on where your tension is strongest.

If your back is sensitive, you may prefer softer pressure. If your back is hard with tension you can turn BackHug up to maximum strength and really get into those knots.

We recommend starting on a lower strength level, to avoid any discomfort, before increasing the pressure until you find your sweet spot.

Often, you'll find that you become comfortable with increasing treatment strength later in the session, as BackHug loosens your tension.


Speed highlight

Some people get the most benefit from long slow pressure, where the fingers press and hold. Others prefer more rapid movement which can give you more a rhythmical, even pampering feeling. And others prefer something in between. Find out what's best for you.


Program Highlight

People have different levels of tension in different parts of their back. Choose upper or lower back or neck focus if you have most tension in any of those areas, or go for the full back option if you have tension everywhere.


Adjust for Back Length highlight 

Choose the back length setting that corresponds to your height and BackHug will automatically deactivate any fingers that could be uncomfortable for you.


Choose Duration

The longer the session, the greater the benefits. But we know time is precious, so you can choose how long treatment lasts to fit into your schedule.
