The Perfect Mother's Day Gift! Wahl Hot/Cold Massager Review and Giveaway! #shareyourpain




I remember when I was little, my mother worked so hard every day. Then she came home and made dinner and took care of us. She always had aches and pains and, now that I am older, I understand why.

I don't know how some women do it. With work and home and some with kids, it is a wonder more women don't suffer from muscle or joint pain. Recently, Wahl, the inventor of the electric massager, surveyed moms and found that 84 percent of those women experience muscle or joint pain annually.

The survey by Wahl found that when it comes to treatment of muscle and joint pain, 69 percent take pain medications, 43 percent use hot and cold treatments and 27 percent opt for a massage.

I know after sitting at my computer, I get shoulder pain and wrist pain. After cleaning the house I get lower back pain. Lugging groceries from the car to the house definitely causes muscle pain. Sometimes all I want is a day at the spa and a massage. But time and money prevent me from getting massages so I have to deal
with the pain myself.

I am one of those who reaches for pain relievers. I don't like to use them but when my old muscles are sore, they help. Luckily, Wahl has two new massage therapy products to help busy moms and women to help relieve the pain of everyday life.
Hot/Cold Massager – Wahl's new temperature therapy massager provides relief by combining soothing massage with hot and cold therapy to offer a more comprehensive approach to muscle tension and soreness. It's just the latest in a series of new and powerful pain management tools from Wahl. MSRP $59.99 
Hot/Cold Therapy Massaging Gel Pack – This one-part massager, one-part hot/cold pack is the latest in a series of new pain management products from Wahl. Unlike conventional hot/cold packs, this first-of-its-kind product combines two of the most common treatments--temperature therapy and massage-- to offer a new level of pain relief. It also offers Velcro straps for hands-free use. MSRP 24.99
I was able to review the Wahl Hot/Cold Massager. I loved it. The Wahl Hot/Cold Massager provides your aching muscles with either hot or cold relief. I have always been told by my chiropractor that I need to treat my pain first with cold and then with hot. This product does just that. You choose the setting on the back of the device and that's it.
* Cold helps relive pain and decreases swelling, decreasing inflammation.
* Heat helps relax muscles and increase blood flow, relieving muscle tension.
What I loved about this product is that it has interchangeable attachment heads. For the cold setting, you can have a smooth massage. If you want a ripple wave massage, you just switch out the attachment. If you want a hot massage, Wahl recommends the kneading and raised bump massage heads.

I used them all. My favorite was the hot massage with the Kneading Massage head. I found this work well for my lower back. It provided me with a deep massage. The heat really made my pain go away. The Raised Bump attachment was the best for my shoulder and neck. I liked the other attachments but they weren't as healing as the other two.

I also liked that the intensity of the massage had 2 settings. The massager is easy to use and easy to handle. I will be using this again especially after I start my garden. I am always sore after gardening and the Wahl Hot/Cold Massager will be a much needed tool.

I know my mom would love one of these handy dandy massagers. She might be getting one this year. Shhh. This would be a perfect Mother's Day gift for that special mom on your list. Who wouldn't want a little massage every once in a while? For more information remember to visit www.wahlmassagers.com.

  3. I am in constant pain. Seriously 24 hours a day, most days. So I would love something like this. I have shoulder issues, then in between my shoulder blades is a mess. And there's this arc on each side of my back that just goes right up my neck, into my optic nerve, and wreaks havoc on me with migraines and vision loss. Then there's the arms, legs, wrists and feet. Where wouldn't I use this?
