If you’re trying to come up with the perfect gift for a special lady this Christmas, then nobody can deny the sheer pleasure that a massager can bring. If this is a gift for your wife, you’ll even have the added benefit of being able to use the massager yourself! Here’s a quick guide to the different types of massager available and which models are hot for 2010.
Manual Back Massagers
If you want a small gift that will still make her feel great, then a manual massager is a good choice. Some of the top manual massagers available, all coming in at great prices, include:
* The Knobble II: This doorknob shaped massager fits in the palm of the hand and can effectively massage pressure points.
* Bamboo Back Scratcher Massager: Back scratchers are so simple, yet they feel great! This one is designed to ease those itches with one end, and gently massage with its rollers on the other end.
Electric Back Massagers
If you want the ultimate gift then an electric back massager really is the way to go. She will thank you for it! Some of the very best electric back massagers available today are:
* LGMedSupply LG-7000 Digital TENS Unit: This unit is designed for pain relief, and comes with five different massaging modes to work on the back, feet, neck and other areas.
* Hitachi Magic Wand: This affordable massage product can be held in the hand, and works at two speeds for a soothing massage.
* Homedics BKK-200 Shiatsu Lumbar Massager: This massager is designed to be placed into a chair for a state of the art rotating massage on the back. It even sends out soothing heat to the area!
Foot Bath Massagers
There’s nothing as relaxing and stress-relieving as a foot bath massage. Although many women would love to visit the spa, the truth is that they either don’t have the time or the money to do it regularly. This can help to make up for it! Massage jets help to relieve tightness in the muscles in just a few minutes.
Some of the top foot bath massagers available, that you can often get for around $100, are:
* The Aqua-Jet Foot Massage Spa: This heats up to a soothing 115 degrees, includes a whirlpool bath, jets, and a cordless remote control.
* Helen of Troy HotSpa Professional Paraffin Bath: This comes with 6lb of paraffin wax to complete any manicure and pedicure. It’s easy to use and perfect for the hands and feet.
Manual Foot Massagers
If you don’t want to go down the electronic route then you can opt for less expensive manual foot massaging options. Here are a few ideas that should all cost less than $20:
* Body Back Company Foot Roller and Porcupine Massage Ball: This is a small, simple foot roller that can be used to massage tired feet. It also comes with a porcupine ball, which features hundreds of sensory nodules to help relax you when used all over the skin.
* The Happy Company 00366 Foot & Body Roller: This comes in the form of a block of small wooden balls that can be used on both the feet and the body.
* Soothera Wooden Spindle Foot Massager: This works similarly to the massager above, made from wood and incorporating a number of different rollers to help relax tired feet.

These simple devices can produce tingles all over the body, and really leave you feeling relaxed at the end of the massage. They can also help to work on headaches and other problems. Because the devices are so simple, it isn’t difficult to choose one that you know is going to work well.
Here’s a selection of some of the top scalp massagers available, all generally available for under $20:
