The Wahl 4120-600 All-Body Massager is an entry-level device aimed at people who are new to using massage tools. It features in our guide to the best handheld massagers (opens in new tab) because it's simple to use, effective for a light massage, and is affordable too. There are various customizable settings to cycle between, so you can adjust the device's performance based on any target muscle group.
Wahl 4120-600 All-Body review: design
Unlike the Brookstone Max 2, Wahl's body massager requires a corded connection for power. It remains plugged in through the duration of the massage, limiting your freedom of movement when using the device on yourself or on another person. The Wahl 4120-600 comes with several accessories, and each enhances the experience in a different way. With the right heads and vibration settings, the massager offers a number of unique benefits.
This Wahl massager gives you the choice of two power settings. The lower power setting generates less speed and works well for more sensitive areas of the body. The higher setting functions more effectively when targeting deeper muscle groups. You can change the speed settings on the massager during use, adding or removing power as needed.
It comes with four interchangeable heads too. The facial attachment uses a flatter surface that enables you to gently run the unit across your face without focusing too much power on a single point.
Wahl 4120-600 All-Body review: performance
The finger-shaped attachment uses four prongs to mimic the feel of fingers on the scalp, which makes it suitable for use during light scalp and neck massage. This attachment also enables you to extend the reach of the massager so that you can massage your lower back. The HoMedics Percussion Pro Massager With Heat also comes with interchangeable heads, though there are only two sets.
The general body attachment looks a bit like the facial attachment, but features several solid bumps across the surface. These bumps enable the handheld massager to more effectively reach deeper muscle groups. When used in conjunction with the higher speed setting, you can get quite a deep massage treatment, but nothing as powerful as a percussive massager such as the Therabody TheraGun Mini.
This handheld massager also comes with a spot attachment. Shaped like a small nub, it focuses the power of the massager into a single, targeted location. It can be used with the higher speed settings to address specific areas of pain in the back and shoulders, relieving stress and tackling muscle knots with precision. It also works with the lower speed setting. Even with less power, the spot attachment generates vibration that you can apply to a variety of relaxation techniques.
Should I buy the Wahl 4120-600 All-Body Massager?
With two speed settings and four changeable heads, the Wahl 4120-600 All-Body Massager offers a versatile performance for the lower price. It uses a corded connection for power, but the cord is long enough to prevent you from being tied to a mains outlet.
While we do recommend this body massager for beginners and anyone wanting a relaxing massage, if you want a more powerful body massager that's fully geared up to relieve deep muscle soreness and tension, we would recommend either the HoMedics Percussion Pro Massager With Heat, Therabody Theragun Mini (opens in new tab) or Thumper Mini Pro 2.
