There is nothing better than a great back massage after a long day of work. Unfortunately, the cost of getting a massage on a regular basis isn’t cheap. It can cost $100 dollars or more for just one massage. Fortunately, there are a variety of handheld massagers that will allow you to massage your aching back whenever you see fit. Plus, it’s even better when you can get your partner to give you a massage!

Health Benefits from Massage

Some tips to keep in mind when buying a handheld back massager.

Handle Design – You want a handle that’s easy to hold and will allow you to hold the massager over your sore spots.

Weight – The weight of a good handheld massager is usually on the heavy side so knowing how you will be using the massager the most is important. If you plan on having your partner give you back massages I wouldn’t worry too much about the weight, but if you are going to be using the massager yourself I would recommend a lighter massager.

Battery or Cord – I would recommend a massager with a cord as they tend to be more powerful. If you go with a battery powered massager they are usually lighter but lack the strength and power for a deep massage. Plus, you will be changing batteries all the time.

Heat – I always recommend getting an electric massager that has a heating option. It will help loosen up your back muscles quicker.

Speed – Having a massager that has at least 3 different speed settings is important. This will give you some different options when trying to relieve pain.

Below you will find our list of the best handheld back massagers
