how to get the best massage

Use all four Thumper Massager models as a team to complement each other.

  • Use Thumper Massagers for one minute or less in each area you are massaging (repeat if desired). Can be used longer on the feet.
  • Do not use on bones.
  • If you are sensitive,take weight off,and/or put a cushion between you and the massager.
  • Do not use the massagers in an area that causes discomfort. You should always be relaxed and comfortable.


When not to use a massager

If you suffer from any medical condition do not use a Thumper® massager, any other electrical massager, or manual massage without first consulting your doctor. Always remember that Massage should be pleasant and comfortable; if you feel pain or discomfort, discontinue use immediately and consult your physician.


Serious side effects or adverse events with massagers are extremely rare, but as with any kind of massage therapy (with hands or with massage equipment) it is important to observe the following contraindications:


Do NOT use a massager if you have:

  • Concerns about your health
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure
  • Varicose veins
  • Lesions
  • Blood clots
  • Lymphedema
  • Skin conditions such as shingles, herpes, or extreme dermatitis such as eczema, acne, or psoriasis
  • Neuropathies
  • Pregnancy
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Pace makers
  • Arterial stints
  • Kidney problems
  • Post-surgery without a doctor’s clearance
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Unexplained calf pain
  • Advanced stage disorders

Do not use on testicles, ovaries, breast tissue, eyes, ears, head, neck, kidneys or directly on bone.



DO NOT USE any massager on your neck. The neck is not generally a fragile structure but in some people, massaging the neck can lead to serious adverse effects. A particular case of brain artery damage was reported in 2004 in a study by Arthur C. Grant, MD, PHD; Norman Wang, MD. They suggested that a specific warning of the risk of stroke and injury to critical blood vessels would prompt more cautious use of electric massagers on the neck.


Congratulations on putting your health first!
