Though mostly small and lightweight, body massagers are available in many types and sizes.


People who look for hand-held infrared body massagers know that Infrared heat can double the pain relieving ability of any standard body massager.

They know not to settle on a regular massager when they can use the healing power of infrared heat to supercharge muscle pain relief – and fast.

Surprisingly, an infrared light therapy body massager won’t cost much more than the average handheld massager.

But now you want to know:

  • What to look for when you buy an infrared electric massager?
  • How hot does it get?
  • How many massage heads and extra features do I need?
  • Which one is the best?
  • Where do you find the best price?

The 2 Best Infrared Body Massagers 

Here’s what I looked for when I researched the best infrared heat body massager:

1It is lightweight. If you plan to use it by yourself, you don’t want your massager to be too heavy to hold for more than a minute.

2. It is reliable and high quality, so it won’t break down after a few weeks.

3. It has a long electric cord. You don’t want your movement to be limited.

4. It has a relatively big handle so you can use it comfortably.

5. It has different intensity levels so you can find the best one for you

Through my 10-hour research (I really wanted one for myself), these are the 2 best infrared massagers in 2018:

Infrared Body Massagers Side Effects

The most important warning regarding infrared heat massagers is for diabetics.

Diabetics cannot use these massagers because due to nerve damage they cannot feel how hot the massager gets and can burn their skin unknowingly.

Otherwise, if you take a few minutes to figure out the right massage head and the right speed level, you’re not supposed to experience any side effects other than pain relief, muscle relief, and stress relief.
