Absolutely worth the investment
I used this every day for four months as I recovered from a hip injury. It relieved the the crippling muscular aches after hydro and gym exercise therapy. I found the range of operational controls adequate without being overdone or complex. The heat option is adequate as are the speed settings. Well constructed, sturdy and thoughtfully balanced. This has been a great purchase.
The percussion massage action is robust and penetrating. I like the range of controls. The head swivelling feature is effective for self-massaging your back.
Its a little heavy when self massaging for any length of time. It electro-magnetic transfer affects my digital television reception.
Have used it for about 1 week now, although initially i felt like the settings on it are :
fast|very fast|super fast
It basically massages by having these 2 ball shaped heads pushing down in alternation like pair of drumsticks...? (hence 'percussion' name?)
i got used to the speed and it does a great job on my tense muscles after a good workout at the gym.
it comes with a bunch of paired interchangable heads. The screw in and vary from soft/hard/gel to heat and accupoint. unfortunately heat only works with the heat pair and i found i...t takes a while to warm up. after it does, the effect isnt as warm as i was expecting. Does a great job. Flexible options. different programs. flexible angled handle, extra long power cord, bonus carry bag for unit+different heads Mild heat, bit on the heavy side,
Questions & Answers
Yeh hi I have a homedics PA-5H and just want to know how to effectively use it for massaging tight quad muscles that have had previously had tears in them and some scar tissue left over. Just want to know is it good for them and the correct way to massage them, how long for how hard etc. Thanks!
Can use this on my legs to help with blood circulation?
Absolutely, it’s great for that. Just stick to the muscle and soft tissue though. When you apply it to boney areas it’s a bit painful.
can you buy just the heads massager only
Yes, they're all available from their website for a good price around 5$ for each set.
