The Point of Relief was designed by Luke Campbell (2004 Olympic Volleyballer) in consultation with the doctors, physios, masseurs and acupuncturists that help treat him throughout his career. Luke found that during his career there was many products on the market to help with pain, but nothing that really hit the spot and made a difference. There is so much body pain out there in society and nothing the really make a difference so we decided to make one. The Point of Relief is ideal for athletes in any sport, pregnant women, tradies, shop assistance that stand, office workers that sit, practitioners with sore hands, nursing mothers or fathers, really anyone who suffers from pain and want to feel better.
