New heavy duty massager!!!!

Posted by rekha.s on 11/27/99 at 00:00 (013167)

Hi folks

I remember Lee posting a message about how a massaging device 'thumper' (in conjunction with other remedies) helped her rid her of her pf.

I went to store called Bed bath & beyond and they are selling the a HANDHELD version of that device for $59.99 (compared to $199-$300 of the name brand) it does the exact same thing.

The name of this is: HOMEDICS Therapist Select Ultra professional percussion manager.

the latest issue of The Sharper Image catalog (www.sharperimage.com) has a 'Powerful Thumper Massager' that allows you to thump at 20,30,40 pulses per second. Cost is an expensive $240/

this device I bought is the junior handheld generic version of the thumper. I had ordered the mini pro massager/thumper over the internet for $199 and then 2 days later I see the generic version for $59.99....so I have to cancel that order on Monday or send it back when it arrives

I have been using it every night and I can feel the blood flow stimulation, after I use the massager, I can feel that the pulse in my foot is rapid-which is what we are trying to achieve-blood flow to heal the injured tissue!!!!!

my sister also said she saw this massager at Mervyns also!
or I can give you their mailing address (they don't have ph# listed on the box) but you can call 411 to get the co ph# if you have the city!
