Brookstone MAX 2

Top Ratedbest handheld massager Brookstone MAX 2

The MAX 2 is a powerful and effective hand held massager that has a cordless design due to its built-in lithium-ion battery that has a long battery life and can be recharged. It can also be used with the charger plugged in. Being a Brookstone product usually means excellent quality, and the MAX 2 is no exception. The two ergonomically designed handles make it easy to hold and control while moving it around, and the nodes move in and out instead of just vibrating like many other massagers, so you don’t have to push it to apply pressure as the nodes themselves will do it.


Some neat features to mention is the 3 deep tissue massage programs called Pulsing, Energizing and Soothing. There are 5 different speed levels of intensity so you can choose what feels right for you between 1750 and 2550 RMS. Overall it is just a great product that is powerful, effective, practical and easy to use… Read Full Review →

Pure-Wave CM7 

Also Greatalso great Pure-Wave CM7

The Pure-Wave CM7 is usually priced a bit lower than the MAX 2 (always make sure to check the latest prices), but still a great quality product. It comes with a wide range of different attachments which makes it quite versatile. Their different attachments consist of a single point tip, a 6-tip head tip, an air cushion tip, a massage oil tip, a facial tip, and a scalp tip, and by changing between them you can use them all over your body. The built-in rechargeable battery lasts for up to 180 minutes of use, and it has a nice stand to be placed in while being recharged or not in use.


The intensity and effect are quite impressive but can be adjusted so you can find out what intensity and speed feels right for you. It can use several different techniques such as percussion, vibration, Swedish massage, deep tissue, shiatsu, and acupressure. Overall this is a universal multi-purpose massager that can do almost anything… Read Full Review →

Bruntmor Premium Super Wave

Best ValueBruntmor Premium Super Wave

The Premium Super Wave is a great valued product that has a surprisingly high quality for its price range. The massager comes with 9 different attachments that you can change depending on what type of massage you want. The pinpointed tips are used to focus on a fixed point, whereas the wider ones are used for larger muscles groups and different areas of your body. There are many ways you can use them and you can even use them on your scalp. It has a built-in battery that you can recharge in 3.5 hours. Even with a battery, it is quite lightweight at only 2 pounds. But the lightweight battery comes with a drawback. The battery life is not as long as the other alternatives listed here. The speed control allows you to change the intensity. Overall it is a neat vibration and percussion massager that can compare to the Pure-Wave CM7 or CM5. It does not score just as high as those offer a few more features, but on the other hand, the Premium Super Wave can usually be had for a much lower price. So unless you care about the extra features, you might save yourself some money and still have quite a nice massager … Read Full Review →

TheraRUB HandHeld Massager 

Budget PickTheraRUB

If you are looking to spend the least money possible for a decent massager that does the job, then look no further than the TheraRUB Percussion Double Head Electric Massager. While the construction and quality of this product cannot in any way compare to the others listed here, this is what we consider the best choice for those who value budget first. We have also reviewed a few other budget ones, such as the Wahl 4290-300 and the Homedics HHP-350, which are both worth considering, but in our opinion this one is a better choice as it is quite powerful and intense and also it is usually listed as a lower price, but don’t take our word for it. Always check for the latest pricing yourself to make sure. With the TheraRUB, you get an easy-to-use product that has a handle with a rubberized grip which makes it easy to hold in your hand. It is not cordless as some others listed here, but you should not expect it to have a built-in battery at this price point. It has a 14-foot power cord which gives you some length so you don’t have to sit by the power outlet. It also comes with 3 types of massage heads which you can change to get different types of massages. The speed and intensity can easily be adjusted by sliding the speed controller up and down … Read Full Review →
