Pado PureWave Percussion and Vibration Handheld Massager Review

For those who are looking for a massager that can provide a full range of massaging options, the Pado Pure Wave has plenty to offer.

Pado Pure Wave Percussion and Vibration Handheld Massager 

The Pado Purewave is a handheld dual-motor massager which is powered by a rechargeable battery and was first introduced to the market in early 2016.

Such has been its success, the Purewave brand is now trademarked. Even with the very high level of sales it has had since its launch, it still maintains one of the most positive review ratings for this type of product.

Who is this product for?

As you will read in the features section, this handheld massager has several massage options so there are going to be a wide range of people who will benefit from owning and using it. This will include professional therapists, chiropractors, and trainers as several experts in these fields have recommended this massager, so we can safely assume they use it on their clients.

 For those who would like the means to have a massage but have neither the time nor are located near a professional masseuse, this will make an ideal alternative. This is especially true if you want a massager that is also portable and can thus be taken with you, thanks to the fact you do not need a power outlet in order to use it.

What’s included?

You will receive the main massager unit, but there are several other items that come with it. The first is the rechargeable battery, but don’t look for it in the package. We say this, as the battery is already installed and sealed inside the massager, just in case you receive it and think the battery is missing.

You will also receive the battery charger and six individual ‘massage sticks,’ as the manufacturer calls them, which each provide a different type of massage when attached.

Lastly, you also receive access to educational videos which teach you more about massage in general and specifics about how to use this massager for the  best results.

Overview of features

As it uses a rechargeable battery to power it, rather than electricity, you have an almost infinite scope in terms of where you use this massager, be that in the office, sitting in the park, at the beach, or even when camping.

Its dual motors provide both percussion and vibration therapy but those are not the only variables. You also get plenty of choice as to how you would like the massager to aid you with six different massage attachments which each providing a different type of relief.

You can also adjust the speed across a wide range of pulse rates to further enhance the benefits you receive from the massager.

Not everyone is an expert on massage, so we really love the fact that the manufacturers, Pura,  gives you access to training videos so that you improve your knowledge and more importantly how effectively you use this massager.

How to use it

We suggest that you first watch the videos, as these will give you a fuller explanation of how to use the massager. Obviously, you want to ensure that the rechargeable battery is fully charged. You then need to determine which kind of massage you wish to have and then select the correct massage stick.

You also need to select which speed you want the massager to operate at by turning the speed control dial accordingly. Bear in mind that higher speeds will be powerful and give a more intense massage.

If you wish to have a facial massage, this is done by attaching the facial massage stick at the handle end of the massager, while all the other massage sticks are attached to the main massage head.

While the Pado Purewave offers you an incredibly high number of options for massaging, it also has a higher price than many other massagers. It is certainly worth it, but if you are hoping for a massager with a lower price tag then here is a great alternative.

It is the Renpho Rechargeable Deep Tissue Handheld Massager, and its price is about one-third of the Pado Purewave. You still get options in terms of massage attachments and speed selection, plus it is powered by a rechargeable battery, so it maintains portability too.
