The Magic Wand has become famous for its muscle-relaxing properties, specifically as a percussion massager. It is known for providing a different kind of relaxation now, but your shoulders, neck, and feet don’t care about the stigmas. In fact, some of our favorite percussion massagers are on sale just in time to help you or your sweetie unwind after a long day of hunching over your desks like a gargoyle. If you’re actually looking for a “percussion massager,” (wink) we have you covered.
Hypervolt 2 Pro $279 (Was $329)
The Hypervolt 2 Pro is our pick for the best percussion massager for athletes, but it’s also great for everyday use. A pressure sensor lets you know how hard you need to push into your muscles, and a 3-hour battery life means you can use it all night long. With five speeds and five attachments – fork, ball, cushion, flat, and bullet – this massager will allow you to get creative with it. Connecting it to the Hyperice app (for iOS and Android) opens up a world of personalized massage programs, targeted regimens, and progress scores based on use.
While these percussion massagers might not make it in time for Valentine’s Day, that doesn’t mean you can’t give special attention to your significant other (or yourself) every day. Imagine the look on your honey’s face when you tell them you booked them a long back-tingling session with Bob and Brad – technically speaking, they’re not lying!
