My husband and I suffer from a variety of aches and pains on a daily basis, but it gets increasingly worst when the winter weather graces us with its presence.  We have invested in so many different massagers over the years but found that while they do help, they just don’t offer exactly what we need.  That is until… MyoBuddy.  I was recently sent a MyoBuddy for review consideration and let me tell you… we haven’t been able to put it down.  Let’s dig in and get more info on it, shall we?

MyoBuddy Massager Pro comes with a pretty hefty price tag at a whopping $399.99 but let me tell you, I have not experienced an at-home massager like this, EVER until now.  The MyoBuddy Pro is a percussive massager that basically takes a professional-grade deep tissue, warming, trigger point and cutting edge vibrational massage technology and puts it into the palm of your hands.  After just one use, I can honestly say – you will notice a huge difference.  The MyoBuddy provides instant relief to sore muscles and myofascial pain.

The moment I saw this product, I was amazed at how much it looked like a Car Buffer – the type you use to polish your car.  That is exactly what my husband said when he laid his eyes on it.  It works just like a car buffer in that the motions seem very similar.

The MyoBuddy helps to soothe sore muscles and ease myofascial pain.  It treats trigger points and everyday pain and aches.  My son loved that it is perfect for his pre-workout and helps with a quicker recovery after his workout is finished.  And, I noticed that it has definitely helped relax me by reducing my stress and anxiety as well as my insomnia.

What is fascia?  Fascia is connective tissue made up of mostly collagen and water.  It joins everything in your body together, from muscle fibers to your veins and bones.  This connective tissue was long thought to have no value in our bodies, but the world is quickly discovering the opposite of such.

The MyoBuddy Massager Pro is an efficient way to help provide quick and easy treatment of our fascia and muscle.  Basically what happens is that the various movements of the MyoBuddy dilate blood vessels and warm soft tissue while delivering thousands of soft, rapid percussive strokes.  The percussive actions and vibration are what ultimately help your muscles by bringing them more fluids.  Because of this, it releases the tension that is held in our connective tissue and brings the person using it quick relief.

The MyoBuddy includes the following in your box:

  • 1 White Plush Bonnet
  • 1 Blue Lotion Bonnet (perfect for coconut oil “massage oil” or lotions to help with your massage)
  • 1 MyoBuddy unit

We have had the MyoBuddy for about a month now and it literally has been used every single day.  Since I suffer from knee and ankle pain due to old injuries and a stiff neck due to lack of sleep and tossing and turning, this product has made a huge difference in how relaxed I am after a massage.  I find that my constant pain is not as bad and many times I have increased mobility and are now much more active.

My husband has a perforated and compressed disc in his lower spine and the gentle but the effectiveness of this massager has helped him tolerate the pain because it soothes the body and relaxes him.  He has slept so much better over the last month because of this machine.

My eldest son loves using this after coming home from a long afternoon at Football practice.  He’s able to wind down after a long day and relax for a good nights rest.  Because it warms the muscles with friction from your own skin, it doesn’t heat up like a traditional unit, so it doesn’t burn like others can.

I use our MyoBuddy on my twin boys who are 8 years old because there is no deep tissue pain like you would experience from an ordinary massager or shiatsu unit.  It’s soft and relaxes them.  This unit is now a must-have for us all and I don’t even know how we would travel without it.  It’s a little on the heavy side, but it still allows me to massage myself on different parts of my body.  Since I have short arms, I ask my husband for help with my back, but I’m able to easily use this massager without any problems.  You can wash the bonnets so cleaning is simple and while it is corded, the cord is very long, so it shouldn’t be an issue for anyone using it on a table, etc.

Of course, if you have any particular ailments, injuries or specific medications, I definitely suggest checking with your doctor prior to using MyoBuddy.  But, considering the price point, I can honestly say it’s something my family and I will not be able to live without.  A good massage here on the island will run me about $150 or more for less than an hour.  With the cost of MyoBuddy, I will always have that massage but from the comfort of my own home.  It honestly pays for itself.

So, tell me… have you heard of the MyoBuddy before?  I embedded a few videos so that you could see how some of the celebrities have enjoyed MyoBuddy and how to use the device.  When I first received this product in the mail, I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I have.  It’s a must-have in our household now and has been an absolute lifesaver.

It is no secret as I’ve talked about my aches and pains  as well as my husband’s here on the site before.  While supplements have definitely given us some relief over the years, we are always looking to alternatives to assist with the pain.  Over the last 15 years or so my husband and I have used various types of Tens Unit Electronic Pulse machines and recently we have started using a new one.  I wanted to share with all of you our thoughts on the Santamedical PM-120 Tens Unit Electronic Pulse Massager and discuss how this product has worked for us.

REVIEW: Santamedical PM-120 Tens Unit Electronic Pulse Massager

Between hours of Physical Therapy and years of supplements and treatment, my husband and I know that any little thing can help when it comes to pain.  I suffer from severe Carpal Tunnel syndrome and Medial Epicondylitis and my husband has wrist sprain & pain from an injury sustained at work as well as a herniated/perforated disk in his spine amongst old sports injuries in his knees and a past shoulder surgery.  We have had our share of tens units prescribed to us through doctors that wound up costing us hundreds of dollars.  Don’t get me wrong – they work and do offer some pain relief but they can be expensive and even if our medical covered a portion, they still became a cost we had to burden.

PM-120 Tens Unit Electronic Pulse Massager

Recently my husband and I were able to try out the SantaMedical PM-120 Tens Unit Electronic Pulse Massager.  This cool little unit is actually quite affordable.  It’s a small and portable compact device that is great on the go or for travel.  Retails for $149.95 but is currently on sale for $35.00 which is a steal considering ones my husband and I own that are quite far and above that price point and do the same thing.  The unit offers six auto modes (stimulation programs) and a pause button and with a 10 to 60 minute timer with auto shut off, you get various options for relief.  The unit has an LCD display which is much easier to read than a manual display that many on the market still have and you also get attachment pads, a rechargeable battery and a power adapter all included.

The adhesive pads / electrodes have a great stickiness to them so you can use it more than once and the battery is rechargeable which makes it much more affordable.  Some of our older Tens Units require 9Volt batteries which can be costly.  I like that you can use this anywhere on the body and there are a set of two wires with two wires attached to each so you can place the electrodes on four areas that need treatment.  The LCD screen is easy to see and read and the unit itself is easy to maneuver as well.  This unit overall comes with everything you need to give your body some relief for both joint and muscle pain and again – the price can’t be beat.  Check out my video below for my thoughts live or click here to watch directly on YouTube.

Do you currently suffer from aches and pains?  Have you used a Tens Unit before to assist with some of that?  Please note that this is my husband and I’s experience and we are not physicians.  Please do not take this as medical advice and see your doctor for help.
