wahl's massager a great gift for moms! (review w/giveaway link)


recently i had a conversation with some girlfriends about how much we love to get massages from our husbands if only it didn't always necessarily lead to...well, you know.

that's why i was so happy to volunteer to review one of a new line of massagers from wahl.  i received my "deep-tissue percussion therapeutic massager" on a day when i was lying on the hardwood floor doing a puzzle with the girls and wondering when i had gotten to be so old.  i had aching places all over my body while i tried to continue in my goal of spending quality time with the girls.

i have never been so happy to get a package in the mail!  the deep tissue massager's goal is to relieve pain and fatigue.  it has variable speeds that allows you to adjust the massage intensity from light to intense.  i have to say that i haven't really tried the massager at more than the "lightest" intensity because that seemed about as much as my body could handle.
the massager has four different attachments to customize your massage:  a four-finger flex attachment that is meant to mimic a human hand; a deep muscle attachment (i like this one the best); an accupoint attachment that can really pinpoint a knot or a specific achy spot; and a raised bump attachment.  to provide maximum power, the massager plugs into the wall.  i have found the cord is fairly long so i can still sit on the couch and relax while stretching the plug to our nearest outlet.



it is also very easy to use.  in fact, it is so easy that i have to keep retrieving it from my kids, who are enjoying it just as much as i am. to change attachments, you simply turn the first attachment counter-clockwise and then replace it with another attachment of your choosing by turning it clockwise. i also really like that the speed intensity changes with a variable wheel.  instead of choosing "low," "medium" or "high," you can simply rotate the wheel to any level that works for you. 

if you think you would benefit from a different type of massage, wahl also makes a deluxe heat therapy massager, a deluxe therapy massager and a flex therapy massager.

this is how happy i look when i'm using it:

now for the good news:   those who like wahl home on facebook can nominate a mom to win a mom relief package from wahl.  if you know someone who is deserving, a friend, neighbor, your own mother, grandmother, aunt or sister, or actually want to nominate yourself, you can simply post a comment explaining why the mom on your list deserves relief.

entries will be judged on their uniqueness and sincerity.  winners will be selected once the contest wraps up on may 13. stories must be submitted before then in order to be considered.

this is a mamabuzz review.  i received a free massager for the purpose of this review from wahl.  regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.
