The Pure Wave CM7 Full Body Massager is one in a long line of products meant to put the power of rejuvenating massage into the palm of your hand. When a therapist can’t be at your beck and call, you can be your own therapist in the comfort of your living room or anywhere else you’re in need of comfort.
The Pure Wave massager relieves aches and pains by offering a powerful and versatile massage that can be used on just about anyone. Whether you’re relieving achy feet, soothing an old sports injury or simply pampering yourself with an overdue massage, the Pure Wave is an incomparable tool designed to give you a wide variety of performance options so you can enjoy the best in Shiatsu, acupressure, deep tissue, and even a Swedish massage.
It’s got a powerful motor that allows it to operate cordlessly for hours at a time or last without recharge for multiple shorter uses. When you do need to use it quickly, this device charges rapidly and is still able to offer you a suitable massage session.
This revolutionary machine is used by doctors, massage and physical therapists, podiatrists and even fitness trainers who help their clients keep their bodies in top shape. The different attachments allow you to relieve sore and tired muscles working out cramps, knots and stretching your muscles (the ones you focus on) to keep them loose and pliant.
The bonus of this model is the included pads just to massage your facial muscles. There are two modes just to relax the face and prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging. Nothing comes close to the convenience and relief the Pure Wave offers in such a handy package.
Simply put, the CM7 is the most powerful cordless massager on the market. It’s lightweight and powerful; gentle enough to use on your face and powerful enough to give you the feel of deep tissue massage.
The settings allow you to customize your experience completely. If you're looking for general muscle relaxing, there’s a program just for that. If you're looking to control muscle spasm, stubborn knots, tight joints, stiff muscles, and cramps, there's a setting for that too.
The combinations you can curate between the multiple vibration settings and the 6 included massage heads are seemingly endless giving you full control of your healing experience. Get the massage you deserve when you want it, how you want it and completely on your terms.
When you receive the package you’ll own the following items:
For at least 2 hours (to make sure the unit is fully charged) you'll want to plug in the massager. While the massager is charging, take some time to get acquainted with the unit and the different sticks. You’ll notice that this unit has two motors and thus, there are two nubs available: Percussion and Vibration.
When you turn it on, the Percussion mode is marked by a solid green light, and the Vibrating mode is noted by a blinking green light. The percussion side uses a special progressing “tapping” motion to deliver the massage. Also called “tapotement,” the percussion massage is rapid, percussive tapping, slapping and cupping (folding your hands into cup-like shapes to deliver an air pocket blow). It helps to increase blood flow and improve circulation and tone certain muscle areas.
Traditionally, percussion massage is performed in rapid movements over specific areas of the body in short but even sequences. The benefit is that the movement provides maximum comfort to thick muscles like those found in your back, arms, neck and shoulders. It’s especially good for athletes or those who are enduring physical therapy though it can be used by anyone to strengthen muscle and improve overall muscle ability.
The other head is the vibrating head. Vibration massage uses vibration, jostling and shaking that can both soothe and stimulate your body depending on the speed and pressure settings used. When applied to your abdomen or lower back, the vibration goes a long way to providing relaxing relief and ridding your muscles of tension and stress.
Most of the sticks included with your machine will be used on the Percussion nub, but there’s a special one for the vibration nub that we’ll discuss in detail. There are six included sticks, and each one is designed to give you a different experience depending on your needs.
The Point Stick gives you a deep tissue massage that is comparable to actual Swedish and deep tissue massages from a therapist. One of the primary goals of a good Swedish massage is to relax the entire body by penetrating the muscles in long, gliding strokes in the general direction of blood that is returning to the heart. This essential method increases the level of oxygen in the blood, decreases the level of muscle toxins and improves flexibility and circulation all while easing tension.
Deep tissue method is similar, but a deeper pressure is applied to remove chronic muscle tension. The focus in deep tissue massage should be on the deepest layers of your muscle tissue, tendons and the fascia which happens to be the protective layer that surrounds our muscles, joints, and bones.
The Point Stick attachment allows you to focus deep penetrating vibrating massage direction to your most troublesome areas. The programs can be used or you can customize the pressure.
6 nodules give you the precision and expertise of a deep tissue sports massage anywhere you need it. The firmness of this massage head is the perfect choice to target larger muscle areas like tight hamstrings, your lower back and hips. The motion helps relax the muscle which can speed up recovery time. Diabetics can especially benefit from this stick as it helps bring relief to cramped legs and improves circulation in the lower extremities.
The innovative design of the Air Cushion stick is native to this brand. The tip is preferable for those who desire softer massage pressure but still want deep tissue-like results. It provides great relief to more sensitive areas like the ankles, knees and shoulder joints. Additionally, the patented Air Cushion stick allows you to massage areas that other traditional massagers can’t. You can safely massage the soles and top of your feet, your elbows and even your knees. You can really affect your muscle recovery time with this ingenious attachment.
This is a unique feature to the CM7 model and one that really brings the spa experience home. Simply slather on your favorite massage oil or pain relieving cream on the disc and then use the massager to stimulate those hard to reach places such as in your middle and upper back. The stick fits snugly into the massager allowing you to confidently add pressure to the areas of your choice and deeply knead in soothing oils and other elixirs and creams. It can be used with both the percussion or vibration modes. Add some mood music and you have a spa on the go that goes with you.
Another feature that’s exclusive to the CM7 is the invigorating Scalp Massage stick. You can run this over your head and feel the soothing sensation of having your hair washed by a pro at a top salon. This unique tip is a great way to alleviate the pain from headaches and reduces tension and stress. The variable pressure allows for safe and effective massage that will reduce anxiety and can even help promote healthy hair growth.
The final exclusive CM7 feature has the added distinction of being one of the sticks that can be attached to either the percussion side of the massager or the vibration side. Adding gentle facial massage to your facial care routine is a fun and relaxing way to keep your face feeling supple and healthy. Using the stick to massage with smoothing motions across your face is a great way to work in facial moisturizers to increase their potency and fight the signs of premature aging. The Facial stick is also great for massaging your temples which can help fight migraines and those with sinus issues.
Overall, Pado has created an exquisite piece of art in the Pure Wave CM7. This lightweight machine packs a punch in a small package. The dual motor cordless design will give you the power to truly customize your treatment and maintain your muscle health, or strengthen it after injury. It’s extremely easy to use with a robust feature set and the addition of the percussion and vibration powers are what really set this unit apart from the rest. If you're in need for a personal massager that gives you portability and comfort in one handy unit, you could do no better than the Pure Wave.
As always, be sure to consult your doctor before taking on any new product, especially if you are nursing an injury. This item is not recommended for pregnant woman and should never be used on open sores or irritated skin.
