Great Massager-Bad Infrared

If you're looking for a heated massager, this probably isn't going to float your boat-as it hardly warms up at all. If you want a powerful, effective massager that is going to work out some of your toughest knots, then this is definitely going to be an awesome buy for you! Watch out though, its noisy.

Use

The Infrared massager is a vibrating wand massager that is electric (corded) and claims to have healing capabilities through the power of infrared. This wand massager comes with 5 different attachments. Each attachment for whatever ails you! You have a long handle (where the controls are located) and a large "bulb" type head. On one side of the head you have a small stub that sticks out, to attach the different attachments onto. On the other, you have a smooth black lens surface where your infrared heats up. This wand massager does not require batteries, but rather has a 6 foot cord that plugs into the wall. This makes this massager not waterproof and rather limiting in mobility. If you've ever owned an Aphrodite rechargeable wand massager, this is the exact same thing except for this one plugs into the wall and isn't rechargeable. Also, the attachments are interchangeable between the two massagers!

The massager and attachments are made of plastic. Though the attachments are plastic, they are somewhat pliable and flexible.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The overall design of this massager works fairly well, but can be a bit heavy for some users. If you have hand or finger pains, holding this for longer periods of time may cause some discomfort. As for the "weight" of the massager, it weighs 1.5 pounds, which isn't half bad. Most of the weight is in the handle so you shouldn't have much issue in trying to "control" the massager and where it is going. It is a bulky massager. The head of the massager is 9.75 inches in diameter and the massager itself is 12.75 inches long. The massager comes with a 6 foot cord, giving you quite a bit of room to maneuver, but still limiting your mobility. Having a long cord like this too can cause a tripping hazard. Make sure that, when plugged in, small children or animals cannot yank or trip over the cord. I think that this massager is great for beginners and advanced users alike. The overall size and functions are easy to use and can be used sensually or sexually, depending on your preference.

Attachments included are:
1 - Single Cone: Pinpoint stimulation to help work out knots
2 - Dualer cone: Two raised cones for dual pin point stimulation
3 - Large flat bumps: Larger flat attachment that has 7 smaller nubs for all over body massage
4 - Buffer: Foam material buffer used for lotion on body and face
5 - Scalp Massager: Used to help stimulate scalp and hair follicles (improving rate of hair growth)

I fully enjoyed each and every one of these massaging attachments, except for the buffer. I don't much care for the material, but that is just my personal preference.

I have mixed feelings about the "flexible/pivoting" neck on this massager. There is an accordian style, plastic piece that is just at the base of the head of the massager. This allows the head to have some give to it while in use. It doesn't move very easily, but it is noticeable when trying to apply pressure. This can be good, if you are using too much pressure or when using this massager sexually but if you are really trying to work out a nasty knot in the muscles, then it will "give" too much and may not be as effective as you'd like. Its a nice feature, but it depends on your intentions of use.
    • Beginner
    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

Half way up the handle, is a sliding button for functions. You can have either high heat and low vibrations or high vibrations and low heat. I tell my friends "you can't have your cake and eat it too" with this massager, which kind of stinks, but after you feel the vibrations that this bad boy gives out, I doubt you'll be complaining much!

Overall, I really enjoyed this massager. As did most of the girls at my spa party! Some failed to remember that they had to continue passing it around the circle to the next person so they could try it out too! Which I found to be rather funny.

I do have to admit that I wish this massager was a bit more quiet. Its not going to sound like a jack hammer, but its pretty darn close. However, with its overall shape and design, I highly doubt anyone will think anything "sexual" about it.

Because this massager plugs into the wall and is constantly being powered by the electric cord, you should not feel a weakening in vibrations and the vibrations should be much more powerful than that of a rechargeable massager.

The infrared side of this massager was close to none. After about 15 minutes of having this turned on, I still felt barely any heat at all. Which was a major bummer, seems how that was one of the main reasons that I purchased this massager. Though, the effectiveness of the vibrations and the attachment variety were enough to keep me satisfied with my purchase.

Even though the infrared warming feature did not work out, I still like using the rounded, smooth side of the heat for massaging. Because of the vibrations being so strong, you can use that side of the massager to run smoothly across your skin or clothing. It works great on my jeans when I am massaging my thighs sitting at the table or watching TV. Also, I don't have to mess with any attachments doing it this way.
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

Using an antibacterial body wipe should be plenty of "cleaning" for this massager. Unless, however, you are using this for a sexual purpose. In that case, I would suggest using warm, soapy water to wash the attachments in and using an antibacterial spray afterwards. Make sure to avoid getting the massager itself wet or moist in the controls, head or near the cord as this is an electric device and can be dangerous or ruin the massager if it comes in contact with water or moisture of any kind.

I store my attachments in the Lockable sex toy case at the moment and the wand massager sits in the night stand drawer next to my bed. Because of the length of this product, you may have some trouble finding a good spot to store it. Although, a dresser drawer would also work just fine.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Personal comments

If you have ever owned the Aphrodite rechargeable wand massager, this is the EXACT same thing-only it plugs into the wall rather than being rechargeable. What is also nice about this is that the Aphrodite attachments and the attachments for this massager are interchangeable completely! If you prefer the power of this massager, but prefer the softness and more pliable silicone attachments of the Aphrodite, then you're in luck!
Follow-up commentary
After owning this toy for a few months, I have to admit that I've only used this a handful of times. Since I received my Aphrodite (Which is the same thing as this, its just rechargeable and this one isn't) I have to say that I am more into being mobile and not strapped to the wall with limited mobility. I will use this when I am laying in bed, or hanging out in the recliner next to the wall (outlet), but otherwise I prefer my Aphrodite because I can use it anywhere without needing an outlet. I do enjoy the attachments though. I will use my attachments with this toy, on my Aphrodite. That is a huge plus for me, that they are interchangeable. This toy also delivers more power than the Aphrodite because its not a rechargeable. I just don't like the electric feature.
