Wahl Deep Tissue Percussion Handheld Massager Review

With the ability to enable users to massage almost every part of their body, this handheld massager from Wahl literally makes any masseuse they may have used previously, redundant.

Wahl Deep Tissue Percussion Handheld Massager

Wahl is a brand name that dates back to the early 1900s and the reputation they have gained in the 110 years since then, for producing top-quality grooming products, is very high. This particular massaging product was first introduced in 2016, and 3 years later it is still outselling many of its competitors.

This specific model is electric so it will require a power outlet close by in order for it to operate.

Who is this product for?

The answer to that is just about anyone for whom a massage would relieve stiff joints and aching muscles or who would like a deep and soothing massage to help them relax.

Obviously, there is always the option to go to a professional masseuse, and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, you need to factor in the cost of doing so, plus there is the convenience element.

Not everyone has the time to make an appointment, wait, and then visit a masseuse, so this would be an excellent means of still having a massage, but at a time and place that suits the user.

What’s included?

This is a corded massager and that cord is already connected during the massager’s manufacturing process. The other items you will receive are the four interchangeable attachments which allow for different types of massage. Specifically, they are

  • Flat disk
  • Deep muscle
  • Accupoint
  • Four-finger raised bump

Overview of features

One of the design features of this massager that ticks a box right away and is its long handle. This removes the frustration of trying to get your massager to touch difficult to reach places, such as halfway down your back. With its long handle, you should be able to reach anywhere that needs attention.

Having variable speeds allows you to set your massager from slow and relaxing massages, up to high-intensity massages at its fastest speed.

There are other choices to be made thanks to the four additional massage heads which Wahl provides you with. These can be used depending on what you need your massage to achieve. That could be wide coverage, pinpoint relief, deep muscle massage or the four-finger attachment which replicates the human touch that a real masseuse would give you.

At just 2.5 lbs., this massager is very light in terms of its weight, so even after a long massage session, it should not be causing any weariness in your hand.

How to use it

The first thing that everyone should do when they are about to use a new electrical device or appliance is to read the user’s guide and pay special attention to any given safety instructions. Assuming you have done so, then plug the massager’s cord into a power outlet, ensuring that the massager’s on/off switch is in the off position first.

You have options with respect to the massage attachments so once you have chosen which one you want to use, you then need to fit it to the massager’s head. All the attachments easily twist in order to put them on or take them off, so do not try to force them, otherwise, you could damage the massage head.

Even if you want to use the massager at the highest speed setting it is advisable to start the massager at a slower speed. You can then gradually increase the speed using the speed adjustment dial. Once you reach your desired speed, leave the dial at that position.


  • 4 interchangeable massage heads
  • Wide speed range
  • Long handle for extra reach
  • Massage ranges from gentle to intense
  • Low price


  • Switch is poorly positioned


While this Wahl massager can provide you with an excellent massage, if you want one that can give you a very intense massage, it may not be the answer. What could be though, is the Viktor Jurgen Full Body Handheld Massager.

The Viktor Jurgen massager has a double massage head, and its powerful motor provides up to 3,350 pulses per minute. The head is also large, so it is ideal for covering bigger areas of your body.

You also get three sets of interchangeable heads to provide a range of massage options. You’ll also be pleased to know it is more or less the same price bracket as the Wahl massager.


The fact that the name Wahl is on this massager certainly suggests that it is a high-quality product, and the evidence shows that it is.

It offers lots of options, both in terms of speed settings, and with four different massage attachments too. With a price which should be within everyone’s budget, the reasons for loving this massager seem to have no end.
