The way you perform your workouts and what you do before and after they’re over will have a word to say regarding the way you feel and recover. If you regularly engage in physical exercises, you might have dealt with sore muscles and, hence, felt the need for a massage.
Unfortunately, we might not always have the possibility to go to a professional masseur or have one at home to help our body recover after workouts. Here is where the Tim Tam Power Massager comes in. The product was developed to meet such needs and speed up your recovery, whether you’re at the gym and home.
Suitable for both personal and professional use, and thus for trainers, physical therapists, and professional athletes, this unit stands out through the recovery benefits delivered and its versatility. The manufacturer claims that this massager should relieve soreness in less than 60 seconds, which means that you might no longer need long massages to get that much-desired pain relief.
What’s more, thanks to the 90° articulating head, you should be able to massage even hard-to-reach areas, and the item can thus be employed for a quick full-body massage. The package includes a variety of accessories so that you can employ it right away and a design that ensures ease of use.
Given the features of this massager, the product might fall a bit on the expensive side, especially if you’re a budget-conscious buyer. You do get a sturdy, ergonomically-built product that is easy to use and lightweight and compact enough to enable you to take advantage of its benefits in a variety of places.
However, the Tim Tam Power Massager comes paired with the accessories you need to start using it immediately upon arrival, such as a carrying case and an international battery charger.
Main features explained
Smoother and quieter performance
One of the things that make the products in this line fail or succeed is the motor featured. A too fast or too slow massager might not help you achieve the results you want, and, if not used properly, it might even cause discomfort.
To make sure you speed up recovery and enjoy instant pain relief, this unit was designed in consultation with physiotherapists, professional athletes, and coaches. What’s more, the product is described as being suitable for both personal and professional use; therefore, you can massage the areas of interest even at home as long as you employ the item properly and follow the recommendations regarding the use of such a device.
The industrial-grade motor delivers 2500 strokes per minute, and to make sure that the power delivered doesn’t make it uncomfortable from a sonic point of view, the massager was built in such a way to deliver a quieter operation as well.
The product was designed to be quieter than its predecessor, and it thus does not exceed 25dB. If you’ve used other massagers, you should instantly notice the difference. A less noisy performance proves to be even more helpful if you want to use the unit in a room where there are other people, and you’d like to avoid disturbing them.
Now, you wouldn’t get to enjoy too much of the improved and quieter performance without a quality battery. That’s why the manufacturer made use of a lithium-ion battery when designing and building this massager that should provide you with over 40 minutes of continuous use.
Furthermore, the battery charger included in the package will enable you to make sure that your massager is always ready for use no matter where you are, but we’ll get more into that in a bit.
Fast results and versatile use
Massagers come in a variety of options and cater to the needs of specific muscle groups and areas, depending on the accessories they come with and their design. Another feature that sets this model apart from others in this category is that it is a general massage tool and, according to the official website of the manufacturer, it can be used for a variety of areas.
You can thus employ it for your upper back and arms, neck, forearms, glutes, calves, and quads, just to name a few. Given the many areas covered, the massager is thus a versatile option that can be used to both improve performance and reduce pain.
Studies link regular deep massages after training to an increase in performance because such massages after workouts reduce lactic acid buildup and even help with micro-tear repairs, which translates into reduced soreness and, therefore, improved performance. High-velocity percussion unlocks knots and reduces muscle tissue tension, which enables athletes to work muscles harder.
What’s also worth mentioning is that you should notice a significant soreness reduction in less than a minute from the moment you start massaging the area of interest. Plus, according to the manufacturer’s claims, a 5-minute massage with the Tim Tam Power Massager is equivalent to 30 minutes of foam roller use or half an hour session with a professional masseur.
Considering these benefits and the fast results ensured, it shouldn’t take long to enjoy immediate relief from muscle soreness, whether you’re at home or the gym. However, if you haven’t used such a product before or your pain is not caused by intense workouts, it is always best to ask for a healthcare expert’s advice before using such devices.
Design and ease of use
The performance and benefits delivered by a massager might somehow be diminished in the absence of an easy-to-use design. To make sure that the Tim Tam Power Massager can be used by professionals and beginners alike, the item was designed with easy operation in mind.
First of all, it is a lightweight and compact unit since it weighs 2.2 pounds and measures 6.8 x 8.9 x 7.3 inches. Moreover, this is a cord-free unit, which means that you can take it with you wherever you go. In the following section, we’ll also talk about the accessories included, among which there’s a carrying case that will further help you transport it comfortably.
Since this is a cordless massager, it comes with a removable Li-Ion battery, as well as an international charger, so that you can make sure that there is enough battery juice for you to enjoy the benefits of using this product wherever you go.
Given that the battery delivers over 40 minutes of continuous use, it should be enough for you to massage more than just one area in a single session before the battery needs to be recharged. The battery can be easily and quickly interchanged, and it is compatible with previous Power Massager models while also being upgraded to ensure longer life.
To make it even easier for you to employ the item, the manufacturer added a one-touch trigger that takes usability one step further. Also, the massager features a 90-degree articulating head so that you can reach the entire body and thus massage all those areas that are usually harder to reach.
The product is described on the manufacturer’s official website as being suitable for both professional and personal use. If you’re not a trainer, coach, or physiotherapist, and you don’t have previous experience in using this type of massager, it is best to ask for further instructions to learn to use this product properly and make the most of it.
Materials and accessories
Besides featuring a comfortable design and lightweight body that should help you massage the areas of interest without feeling fatigued, the product was also built to make sure that using it is hygienic.
The antimicrobial plastics used are a great addition, even if some sort of cleaning is still required, especially if you use it daily. They will prevent germs from getting hold of the unit, as well as cross-contamination.
The massager can be used immediately upon arrival as the box includes everything you need to start catering to your needs. You will thus get the massager, a 12V removable Li-Ion battery, an international charger, and a carrying case. All that means that, once the battery is charged, you can start using it.
The carrying case is a nice addition, as it will enable you to pack the unit and take it with you wherever you go without worrying that it might get damaged during transportation. Plus, it also proves to be helpful even when the item is not in use, and you want to store it and the accessories it comes with in the same place. By doing so, you will know where everything is next time you need a massage.
The international charger is also worth mentioning as it will make sure you can take the product with you even when traveling abroad. It is compatible with outlets found in the USA, Mexico, Canada, Europe, and most Asian countries.
The massager comes with a Shore 85 Round Therapy Tip, but you can buy other tips separately. The manufacturer offers tips that you can use for warm-up massages and hot and cold therapy. The tips are interchangeable, so if you do decide to get additional ones, it won’t be difficult to add or remove them.
