  • Brian F. Burke Jr. - An Old School Product for a Modern Age!

    I own the Thumper Mini Pro. It is without any doubt in my mind the best electronic massager that is able to be used in the home (as well as at a masseuse's office.) If you follow the instructions it WILL WORK. It is generally unnecessary to push down on it, that also causes it to overheat faster. Use it without any heavy or fuzzy clothing on , such as fleece. It will go longer before protection circuit kicks in. If you leave it on an area using its own weight for 10 minutes or so it will massage deep. It will also heat the area up significantly by transferring its motion energy to the muscles and a conversion to heat energy takes place, it a brilliant design. NO electronic devices are without the the issue of sudden failure, especially one that vibrates and uses solid state electronics. It is their nature to quit suddenly and completely. there is really no way to predict which ones will fail. As long as they have good solder joints and a thick circuit board and thick copper connecting lines, if it were military it would have multi layer connections.I have used it ALOT since my purchase and have had no problems even though it has been dropped and handled roughly at times. No electronic device that vibrates to work will last forever. Think about it, vibrate your flat screen or laptop like that for 20 minutes and see what happens. I am so satisfied i tell everyone I know who lifts weights, post lifting soreness is one of it's most effective things.Or people with joint or muscle issues, like fibromyalgia. The speed setting do different things actually. Faster is not always better for everything and sometimes faster doesn't result in a deeper massage. The fast speed also tends to have an effect similar to a tens unit and the vibrations confuse the nerve signals alleviating pain directly. The fast speed can also also make you itch, it will go away, us a cortisone based creme after massage if it is a problem. I suffer from multiple pain issues from herniated discs to total knee and hip degeneration where as soon as I lose a little more weight will be replaced. The unit has definitely increased my quality of life significantly. No, I am not in any way associated with the company, I stumbled across the product here on AMAZON! I ask all the complainers to think about the nature of the product and read it's instructions carefully I believe that this will increase your satisfaction and understand what the company was up against to make the product work reliably. Just look at the power cord, when is the last time you bought a product with a 12 FT. high gauge power cord? Copper is VERY expensive to the manufacturer and an easy way to increase profits, after all there are extension cords. But an extension cord would have much smaller gauge wires and be less reliable a possibly dangerous. It is this and other things that point out what a quality product this really is. I am pretty sure they will use your feedback to upgrade the next model of the product, I have a feeling that the company would rather build a better product an raise the price to cover costs that to build a lesser product and keep the price the same. It reminds me of the question...what ever happened to small electric devices that could be fixed, such as toasters and such. My Family owned a GE toaster that when you put the bread in is slowly lowered and then when done it slowly came back up, it was full chrome plated steel, with heavy steel and heavy chrome and was fixed at least a couple of time during the first 20 years of my life, I only wish they had offered it to me to fix that last time it needed fixing instead if getting a cheap disposable toaster. Now they have had probably 10 toasters in the past 20-30 years. Such a shame. I disposable society is not necessarily better than a well built society that can be fixed and upgraded. We have just gotten used to it. I believe that this is a product of the old school. It is definitely a product I am glad to have purchased and am enjoying owning, even if it needs fixing in the future (and hope fully not need to be replaced.) Well, I think I have rambled on long enough. Hope my little thesis helps your decision about which product, if any, to purchase. Peace, Brian Burke Jr.

  • Paul Buckner - The only antivirus I trust to protect my customers

    I've used Kaspersky for years now to keep myself, my family and my customers safe from virii the world over. I love being able to buy it online, for half price (or less!) and being a Prime member, I get free shipping on it...

  • Tesa - Not for Hyper-pigmentation (dark spots from acne)

    I bought this from Sephora and used this for about 6 weeks to treat left over dark spots from acne. As an African American woman, dark spots are form on my face very easily from acne. :( When using this product, I did not see any difference in their appearance, nor did I see any changes in the smoothness of my skin. When I bought this product, I originally wanted to try a product from K-beauty, but was influenced to buy this. I would have been better off using what I used to treat dark spots before: rose-hip oil and spin brush exfoliation. I'm going to try the vitamin c serums from K-beauty instead.

  • Peace - Wouldn't charge when I took it out of the box

    I saw the wonderful reviews from June 2012 and purchased the product through Amazon from psychcultulture. I paid $266.00 and waited for it to be shipped from Israel. The device wouldn't even take a charge. That was when I checked the reviews from November 2012 and saw the negative reviews about its manufacturing flaws. I returned it, but couldn't afford the $150.00 Fed Ex shipping and had to send it with no insurance through USPS. Will it get there and will I be refunded my money? I don't know. Make sure you buy it through an American distributor so you can be assured of insurance coverage and a signature on arrival. I plan to purchase it again through an American distributor after the reviews show positive results.

  • Kim Hertzel - very happy with the item and glad i bought it
