Professional standard massage for clinic or home use

A few years ago we were looking for an effective home massager for our chiropractic patients to use. As these researchers found (1)⁠, most massagers built for home use are not very effective, We checked out the ones in the shops, on line and even requested a heap of samples from factories overseas. They all ended up in our wheelie bin and we built our own. These are our General Purpose Massagers, They’re easy to use and they only cost about the same as one professional therapy session, but most importantly they are highly effective. Once you’ve got one, apart from a bit of electricity there’s no more cost, opening up a host of potential benefits that would not be affordable if relying on professional massage therapists alone.
