The Sissel Intensive Massager with its percussive action is suitable for use on most near-surface muscle groups. The 1.4 kg weight of the massager means it is light enough to be taken along while traveling, but heavy enough to provide a deep-pulsing massage without any need to add extra pressure or working weight. The range of available power settings gives you control over the intensity of the massaging action, and the pulsing frequency can be adjusted over the range of 20 to 40 beats per second. The balanced design of this Sissel Massager reduces any kick-back effect to the handle, meaning the energy produced is directed to where it will do the most good. This massager is effective whether applied directly to the skin or through clothing.
