The Conair Body Benefits Heated Body-Flex Massager features a head with five textured surfaces and an adjustable handle. It works with several areas of the body, so you can use it for both relaxation and everyday pain relief.
Like the Prospera PL008 Penguin Percussion Heat Massager, this Conair body massager includes settings for both heat and vibration. You can use these settings individually or both at the same time. This heated massager focuses on pain relief. The heat interacts with blood vessels to increase circulation. This promotes faster healing, and the heated sensation works just as well for relaxation.
This handheld massager includes both low and high power settings. These settings affect the speed of the vibration, but not the heat. Heat controls rely on a separate switch, located just above the main power setting on the handle of the device. You can use the massager's lower power setting for general surface massages, especially for light relaxation. The high power setting generates additional speed for the head of the device. This setting addresses deeper massages, especially those in the back and shoulders.
You can adjust the angle of the head, too. This body massager comes with a multiposition neck that adjusts the head position for more effective reach. You can move it one way when working on tense leg muscles, and then change it when you want to focus on your lower back. This simple design choice increases the range of the corded massager, so you can reach more areas without any added stress. If you'd prefer a massager that can work cordlessly, you might want to consider the Brookstone.
This unit does not come with changeable accessories, and it does not accept any other heads. The included accessory, however, has a few special features of its own. While some units use a vibrating finger add-on that focuses the vibration on a target location, this head uses its design to offer a similar benefit. You can use the concentrator knob for a more focused sensation. Three unique texture surfaces surround the face of the device, so you can turn the unit until you find the feel that works most effectively for you.
Conair recommends starting all massages with light attention on a general area, then addressing more focused areas with higher power and pressure. You can adjust the settings to suit your needs, but you cannot change out the head. Overall, the existing settings allow this massager to work on the neck, back and legs.
The Conair Body Benefits Heated Body-Flex Massager features both power and versatility. It comes with a single head, but the variety of massage surfaces work as a unique solution that provides many types of massages.
