Massagers that you don't put up your hoo-hah

My girlfriend gets a lot of soreness/tightness in this band on her hamstring area, especially when she goes out on runs or long walks. I was thinking about getting her a massager for her birthday, but I'm having trouble finding one that isn't a dildo.

Any suggestions?

    maybe you should get her a massage for her birthday and suggest she stretch more before she goes running.

    You're better off getting her a sports massage or a PT session, and then a piece of curved/cylindrical foam she can roll her muscles over. Any massagers, especially electrical ones, are likely to have more efficacy in relaxation than getting rid of muscle tightness - that's a job for stretching, either before or after running.

    Yeah, google myofascial release and spring for a proper massage.

    The Stick. Seriously, these things are awesome. Also, google "IT band soreness" and see if that describes what she is experiencing. It's pretty common, and there are some popular stretches using foam rollers for relieving it.

    Yeah, she wants a Foam Roller for that type of thing. Stretching out after the workout helps quite a bit too.
