This massager does what the other handheld body massagers do not, helps me reach areas of the body by myself like the back kf my shoulder-blade etc where I get sharp stabbing pains, and does the point hammer pressure massage. I do a lot of work on the computer so I am prone to getting shoulder and carpal tunnel pain, and this massager has heads that can do precise pressure point massage. Very helpful. Just started using it, so not sure about the durability yet, so I will update that as we go along. The buttons are a bit hard to get used to because changing them as we massage is a bit hard hy oneself but I guess it becomes easier with use? Have to wait and see!
