That is something that has happened to me before.

There are a ton of different kinds of diy percussion massagers out on the market today for home use. However, there is one that has become very popular will consumers, chiropractors, and physical therapists. That device is the PureWave CM-07.

This percussion massager does it by releasing your trigger points.

What are the trigger points? Simply put, they are muscle knots which are sensitive spots in soft tissue and often described as micro-cramps. These trigger points are the small muscle areas usually found alongside bones. When your big muscles get overworked it causes a chain reaction and these smaller muscles get overworked as well.

The result is these small muscles become strained, knotted up, and before you know it you are in pain. Some of the common trigger points will happen along the sides of your spine, shoulders, and shoulder blades.

The PureWave CM-07 can combat these trigger points by using several different attachments that are targeted for different areas of your body. In addition, you can switch back and forth using vibration and different percussion modes at varying intensity levels.


Unlike the Wahl Massager this one is cordless.  Simply, charge it and then you can use it anywhere you want with literally “no strings attached”. Cords can sometimes be annoying.

With the PureWave CM-07 being mobile, you can easily travel with it and use it along the way because you do not have to worry about plugging it into an outlet. When it does need a charge it only takes 1 hour to charge for 180 minutes of continuous use.

The workhorse percussion motor is perfect for a heavy-duty massage for releasing trigger points. On the flip side, the vibration motor works gently on those delicate areas such as joints. Along with your facial muscles and scalp.

It is made with a silicone head for allowing air to flow through it while the percussion motor is running. This allows you to hammer these areas using pressure to break up the tension without causing pain.

6-Head stick

The most aggressive attachment you can use with this massager is the 6-head stick. You want to use it for massaging large muscles like your glutes, hamstrings, calves, and quads.

Facial Massage Stick

When you think of getting a massage? Thoughts of massaging your back, neck, and feet would most likely come to mind. At least it does for me, anyway.  But I would not think about my face getting massaged? Would you?

There is one attachment stick to use with the vibration motor that can be added to its head and that is the facial massage stick.  This is used specifically for massaging facial muscles.

With the stick made out of metal, this attachment can be used to apply face cream. The vibration lets the therapeutic ingredients applied from the facial serums and creams to infiltrate into the layers of your skin for a deeper application.

The metal is ideal because it stays nice and cool. It lifts the facial muscles for achieving a tight and more toned look. Out of all the sticks, the PureWave CM-07 has the fascial massage stick is the only stick that can be attached to both the vibrating and percussion massager.

The facial stick is the only attachment that you attach to the bottom of the PureWave massager, unlike the others. All the others go on top where the heads should be connected.

The PureWave CM-07 has received a lot of customer feedback with the majority being very positive. I have listed some of those reviews below.
