Pure-Wave CM5 Extreme Cordless Massager Review

The Pure-Wave CM5 is a very good cordless percussion massager. This model comes with 3 massage attachments that will provide different massage experiences. This massager’s powerful percussion motor delivers up to 3700 RPM, more than enough for a thorough massage.

Features And Programs

Pure-Wave CM5 Extreme Cordless Percussion Massager (White)One of the things we particularly enjoyed about the CM5 is its well-thought design. This unit is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also very effective. The handle is very easy to grasp, the massage mode and speed are easy to adjust, and you can change the massage attachment in no time whatsoever.

Another great thing about this model is that it comes with a percussion motor. This motor is very powerful, and it can deliver up to 3700 RPM. This is a very high speed, and most people will find it too aggressive to their liking. However, this rotation speed will ensure that your muscles will be activated, so they will be relieved of all the knots and tensions.

The CM5 comes uses a 2200 mA Lithium battery. The battery can last for up to 180 minutes, which should be enough power to last a whole week if you use the massager for up to 20 – 30 minutes each day. The battery doesn’t take too long to recharge, and you can recharge an empty battery in about 60 minutes.

A good thing about this unit is that every massage attachment has a different role and performs a different massage. The six-head stick is better suited for covering large areas in a short time, which makes it perfect for your back and thighs. This attachment is specially designed to improve circulation and relieve stiffness, so it’s suitable for muscle stretching, to stimulate motion and flexibility, and to fasten your muscle recovery.

The point stick attachment is great at breaking up the muscle knots and relieving pain. This massage attachment is specially designed to provide a deep-tissue massage, so it will reach areas beneath your surface muscles. The resulting massage will be very relaxing, and you can even use this attachment to target specific tension points in your muscles.

If you’re not a big fan of rough massages, the air-cushion attachment is the one you should use. This massage attachment produces a softer massage, and it will be more soothing to your muscles. This attachment is a good fit for people who suffer from aching joints or those who enjoy a relaxing massage at the end of the day.

If this is also not a problem, contact the manufacturer.
