With just a little bit of effort, you can reap big benefits from a compact yet powerful device called the handheld massager. The best handheld massagers fit as easily into one’s lifestyle as they do into one’s home. Whether you’re busy with work, a recovering athlete, or suffering from stress, these convenient devices can work a world of wonder—for a variety of issues. Read on to learn all about the benefits of handheld massagers!
Alleviates Muscle Aches/Pains
One of the biggest benefits of handheld massagers is their ability to relieve and soothe aching muscles. Using their specialized massaging head, you can easily pinpoint and target specific areas. Their vibrating or percussive movements work the muscle tissue and promote blood flow to the area, helping to release the tension that ails them. With massagers like the Bodywand Versawand, the massaging head of your choosing (choose from up to 6 shapes) penetrates both soft and deep tissue, alleviating tightness and discomfort while promoting relaxation and recovery—and you reap those benefits immediately.
Relieves Stress & Anxiety
Did you know? Massagers can also help with mood. “Massage therapy” can be beneficial both physically and mentally when done regularly. According to a study at NIH, anxiety can be reduced by up to 50% with massage therapy in just 12 weeks. It’s also been shown to reduce stress in as little as 10 minutes (according to Medical News Today), as well as blood pressure and heart rate (according to the Mayo Clinic). These observed reductions in stress and anxiety can be felt as soon as your first session, and can continue to be beneficial over time.
As massagers can have a calming effect on the body, they can help improve sleep quality by relaxing your muscles and easing your mind. Around half an hour before bed, use the massager for several minutes on your preferred areas, clear your mind, and let your body do the rest.
Another main benefit of handheld massagers is their ability to be used nearly anywhere. USB-rechargeable and battery-powered massagers can be easily toted from room to room, and mini massagers are great for packing and travel. And whether plug-in or cordless alike, they can be used anywhere on the body, at any place, any time!
Customization at Your Fingertips
Many of our massagers offer various modes of vibration, as well as different speeds of motion. For instance, our Bodywand Couture Wand offers five vibration patterns with ten different speeds. And with attachments and accessories readily available, handheld massagers can be surprisingly customizable, giving you the precise type of relief you need.
Helps With Recovery
Athletes around the world use handheld massagers to facilitate their recovery. Massagers have been shown to reduce recovery times and increase blood flow, which can help with the muscle-healing process. After vigorous physical activity or exercise, try using a massager on your sore areas for a few minutes to help with relief and recovery.
Price & Convenience
Investing in a handheld massager is a great way to get numerous massages—while only having to pay once. No recurring, premium prices at a salon or spa. No booking then waiting for masseuse appointments. Just cost-effective relief whenever you need.
And there you have it: the versatile benefits of handheld massagers! Although there are many things to consider when it comes to these helpful devices, being informed about their advantages can help with making the best decisions towards improving your well-being.
