Wahl Introduces Hot & Cold Therapy Massager

--Latest in hand-held massage combines three best-practice treatments into one powerful package--

STERLING, ILL. (March 12, 2013) – Those experiencing aches and pains resort to a combination of tools such as heating pads, ice packs and hand-held massagers to help relieve sore muscles. Now, thanks to Wahl, those looking for all-around relief can find this combination in one powerful tool. The new Hot & Cold Therapy Massager builds off Wahl’s 100-year legacy of massager innovation and adds to the company’s therapeutic lineup of pain management solutions.

Wahl’s new Hot & Cold Therapy Massager offers advanced pain management by combining soothing massage with temperature therapy. Through an integrated temperature plate, users can easily use the heat setting to help increase circulation for muscle recovery or switch it to the cold setting to reduce muscle swelling and inflammation. The addition of temperature plus superior massaging power, two speed settings and four interchangeable attachments make Wahl’s latest innovation well-suited for the growing number of people experiencing muscle aches and pains on a routine basis.

According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, chronic pain impacts 116 million people nationwide. In addition, there are 76 million baby boomers that began retiring last year and a growing population of people who desire to live a more active lifestyle. By combining the benefits of massage with temperature therapy, Wahl offers those dealing with pain a more complete, natural solution to addressing their needs.

    The Wahl Hot & Cold Massager is ergonomically designed, featuring a lighter-weight and contoured body that makes it easy to hold. Its elongated design makes addressing hard-to-reach places more convenient while the innovative hot/cold plate provides a wide, flat surface area for maximum relief.

    The Wahl Hot & Cold Therapy Massager will be available online at www.wahlhomeproducts.com as well as at select Walgreens and other retailers nationwide for a MSRP of $59.99. The unit comes with four interchangeable heads: a flat surface attachment head to get the most from the hot/cold plate, a large nodule attachment for a deeper massage, a small nodule attachment for a lighter massage and a ripple wave attachment.
