Product Sourcing Service ensuring you have exactly what you need
We all know a good massage makes us feel great, but most people don’t have the time or money to get a massage daily.
A great alternative to the real deal of a hand massage is using a percussive massager. Perfect for home use and a great companion for healthcare professionals, percussive massagers help to provide many health benefits.
Here are the top 5 reasons why you should choose Thumper as your percussive massager.
Thumper have sold over 1 million massagers worldwide, that’s a lot of people enjoying a therapeutic, relaxing full body massage at the flick of a switch.
With over 200,000 chiropractors, physiotherapists, sports massage therapists and elite athletes using their percussive massagers, Thumper is the professional’s choice.
Applying the right depth of stroke makes a significant difference in whether you are working your muscles efficiently or causing harm to your muscle tissue. Too low and the massager will have little or no effect on the healing process, too high and you could cause damage to your muscles if applied incorrectly.
Thumper Massagers depth of stoke ranges from 4-8mm, perfect to give our amazing body cells the kick start they need for your body’s healing process.
Everyone is different and we all have our preferred areas to massage. Choosing a massager that can treat the areas to help you recover plus the ‘ahh that feels nice’ factor is a winner.
If you crave a good back massage, looking to ease your tired legs and arms, improve your blood circulation or just love a good foot rub, Thumper has it all.
Whatever your budget Thumper has a complete range and price point for everyone.
Thumper massagers come with a 2-year warranty, so if at any point during this time your Thumper has an issue you can be confident Physique will step to the rescue, even if you didn’t purchase your Thumper from Physique.
If your warranty has expired, we can still provide a speedy and reliable repair service for a minimal fee. And all of this in our UK Thumper workshop at Physique HQ!
Thumper massagers have virtually no kickback to the hands and arms, their patented technology and handle design mean you can massage for longer without the pain or discomfort.
Thumpers also require no added pressure to be applied by you. Just park the Thumper on the area to be treated and the ‘percussive ’ action travels into the muscle up to 8mm deep, and up to 28 times per second.

This product is excellent! My physio uses the big brother version (Maxi Professional) on me, and after a horrendous bout of piriformis syndrome I decided to invest in the mini for self application.
I'm glad I went for this professional version as opposed to the cheaper sports model. It has less heads than the Maxi Pro, but it vibrates (on the top setting) more quickly. It's dramatically sped up my recovery, and is something that I've found handy to use on friends and relatives to relieve tired shoulders, aching muscles, or tired feet.
An all around excellent product, durable, and built to last. With excellent customer service over the phone when initially inquiring about the product, and next day delivery despite ordering after the designated time for next day delivery! I cannot recommend this product enough, and the price on this site was £30-£50 less than on other sites I came across.

If you're looking at this you may well have already used the Maxi Thumper at a chiro session (that's what they all seem to use) - this smaller version is easier to use on yourself. It's not too heavy but still solid and has some weight to it. Has 3 speed settings and works well, the long power cord is useful.
It's made in Canada and seems well constructed and should hopefully last for years. It can be used pretty much all over and seems to really help with aches and pains or to warm up for sports etc.

Awesome, this Thumper massager has revolutionised my life, headaches have disappeared and my neck and shoulder pain is reducing everyday, I would highly recommend this product to anyone with muscle pain it is fantastic and so easy to use.

Really good, physio used this on me and just had to have one.
13 June 2016
This was ordered for my friend as she was so impressed with mine which I've had a number of years. And I've used it on Many of my friends . So I would recommend this to anyone suffering with back problems and muscle tightness.

As a massage therapist, this is perfect for self treatments and for use on my clients. It is quite heavy but very effective.
24 February 2021
First experienced this product in the chiropractor's treatment room for chronic back pain, then bought one for myself to use in between treatments, the whole family use it for different things, aches and pains from work, DOMS after a gym session or just a nice treat, I wouldn’t be without this massager now, highly recommend, absolutely worth the money.
19 June 2021
Great product and delivery was very quick
28 September 2021
My dad, a chiropractor, has one of these massagers and I had to get one for myself too. It is so easy to use, both on yourself and on someone else, and it gives an effective massage.
08 October 2021
Brilliant product really helps with tense muscles.
26 June 2020
Really good piece of kit. Gives a good massage. Plenty of cord so no problems with accessibility.
Only downside is I find it a little bit heavy.
26 June 2020
I have Had chronic upper and lower back pain for several years and tried many gadgets for back pain without success or relief ( too many to mention ) however this is amazing!!!
My husband also had back problems and also feels the same.
It’s great value for money if you consider what you pay for a Chiropracter , physio ect. Mines has already paid for itself.
My McTimoney Chiropracter recommended this having used it as a treatment on me. He was correct when he said I wouldn’t need to see him as frequently.
I use it every night before bedtime for 10- 15 min and find it helps to relax and aid sleep.
I can’t recommend enough due to the relief I get.

I purchased this product as a result of similar being used on my upper back when visiting my Chiropractor. No other home use massage equipment on the market comes close to this and would definitely approve to anyone thinking of buying one. It may seem expensive, but the results to relieve upper back and shoulder tension are amazing. Please be aware that this product is reasonably heavy.
31 August 2020
This product was recommended to me & it has helped me immensely in-between my back treatments.
Delivery was extremely quick (next day) & I would highly recommend this product based on the advise from a professional.

This is a great addition to my business and works well with my fitness & sports massage clients.

It is really good
27 April 2020
Great product, immediate easing stiffness and helping fight against my sciatica.
Physique had great communication throughout order/delivery process even during these unprecedented times. Thank you for the quick and reliable service.
01 May 2020
Another excellent massager from Thumper.
04 May 2020
Very helpful for easing som muscle tightness in my lower back during lockdown, reducing stiffness in general. A good tool for soothing and waking up the body. Thank you.
06 May 2020
Because of Lockdown, my regular Myofascial massage sessions have had to be paused indefinitely.
I have a chronic condition called autoimmune thyroiditis, which for many people one of the symptoms is joint and muscle pain. This has worsened for me over the last 10 years, and I've been searching for something to help.
It's as if the fascia and muscles develop painfully firy knots.This varies in severity according to one's immune system getting overstimulated, weather conditions and overdoing it.
The Thumper seems like it will become a valued household helper. I've had several sessions with it, and it seems to be quite gently loosening the knots in my thighs and calves, thus taking some strain off my sore knees also.
I think for people with my sort of condition it would be best to start on 5 mins, then 10 , before building up to 20.
I started on 20 mins, and within hours felt quite toxic with my mind fogged and swirling. I guess the sudden release of toxins. However next day my mobility was a bit easier. I feel hopeful about it .
My husband also has aches and pains from being 74 and doing lots of physical jobs, and he is finding it helpful too.

High quality massager, tight back muscles released in a few sessions.

Good product, works well, and saves your arms as a therapist but if you drop it it breaks automatically and this is not good. Not robust in that way.
26 March 2020
Reply from Physique:
Thanks for the review and good to hear it works well. Please can you clarify what you mean by dropping and breaking automatically. If you mean it stops when too much pressure is applied then this is a safety mechanism to prevent injury when using the Thumper.
Good, sturdy product - does what it says on the tin. Some difficulty using the manual adjustment. Very stiff initially.
18 January 2021
I bought this a few weeks ago. Mine sounds a bit too loud almost like a drill compared to one my friend has and it is the same product. Apart from the sound it works.
31 January 2021
Really great product so easy to use and really powerful. So pleased with this purchase. Thank you
17 October 2021
A great tool for anyone who does a lot of physical activity or sports and has tight muscles. I use it prior to giving a massage, get the tissues soft and warmed up before giving a deep tissue massage.
28 March 2014
Fantastic device!!! recommended by my chiropractor, the whole family uses it and it is soooo much better then any other devices I bought and tried over many years,
22 September 2016
I'm enjoying having my massage I have had one before, wonderful
Mrs Kate Harrison
26 March 2017
I have a back injury that has left me with muscle knots that go into spasm and are so painful it effects my breathing , and I was recommend to get the "Thumper" and I am amazed it leaves you feeling so relaxed and I have only used it 3 times and I am pain free , I wish I had found out about this sooner thank you Physique Management for this wonderful amazing product.
11 March 2019
As a 35 year old surfer and skateboarder im pretty chewed up these days but this thing is brilliant. I use it before and after sessions and it will save me thousands in sports massages.
27 April 2020
Really helps me during lockdown. Practice on my partner who, has big trigger point issues caused by overuse of muscles as a triathelete! He rates it
01 May 2020
Pro version of this product used by my Osteopath professionally. Bought this product and was very impressed. Build quality and performance is excellent. Price was very reasonable and delivery (following day) was outstanding. Excellent results from a great product. Very happy to recommend product and supplier.
25 June 2021
Great. Works well.

27 July 2021
Really useful and solid massager which is currently helping me with sacroiliac joint and muscle pain. This pain spreads to the hip and leg and the massager is really helping to release the muscles. I also have to mention the sales team at Physique who were nothing short of brilliant in getting this massager to me urgently, thank you
12 August 2021
Really good when I can hold it in position but because there is a long handle and the head is so heavy it is a little frustrating - seems a fabulous product but I can't get best use of it.
13 September 2021
This is a great great product, it works on stiff mussels at all frequencys and leaves you feeling great.
20 September 2021
Arrival of the product was prompt. I have purchased the Thumper Massager sport which is very good.The only disadvantage is a bit heavy! Otherwise its a wonderful massager.
29 December 2020
I've only had the Thumper for a week, but I am loving it. I have a really tight shoulder & some tension across my mid-back & it's really helping to relieve the discomfort.
08 February 2021
Brilliant so happy I purchased this...being a therapist for a long time and suffer with a bad shoulder plus a few old injuries. Have to say the thumper is really helping I love it also my son loves it, we actually fight over who's turn it is.
Can't wait to get back to work and use it on some of my clients.
01 April 2021
Seems to provide some relief. Still testing, but confident.
It's certainly easy to use.
27 April 2021
Bought as a present. Daughter very happy with it
02 May 2021
Love it ... just what I needed in my life, not too pricey and it really helps with my injured shoulder and Neck, soothing the aches and pains in-between my Chiropractor visits ... would highly recommend.
13 May 2021
Excellent product, which as proved to be a great help.
19 August 2020
Excellent product. Gives a great massage particularly on the shoulders and back. I have recommended it to my brothers. Beats rolling on tennis balls and can be used through clothing.
30 August 2020
This machine is well produced and sturdy. It is a fairly large headed machine ideally suited for use on someone else. Having treated others and myself. I found the long handle and the shape of the head particularly useful when working on myself to lean against and lever into my lumbar area and hips. I have found it to be versatile and user friendly. The variation in speed is well graded and used on larger muscle groups the strongest setting really helps to reach into the deeper tissues. Good for private and professional use.The really long flex is fantastic too. Highly recommended
12 October 2020
For anyone who leads an active lifestyle this really does relieve muscle tightness from regular, hard exercise workouts or general outdoor/work activities . Wish I'd found this years ago and would have avoided injuries requiring trips to the physio and enforced breaks from my normal training schedule.
Well designed and easy to use, a great piece of kit that is well made.
Light enough for my wife to use. We are both really pleased with this purchase
When the Verve is back in stock that will be my next bit of Thumper kit.
18 October 2020
Excellent service, very easy to order and arrived much quicker than I was expecting. Great product
09 November 2020
Bought for a Christmas present so cannot comment as yet to how this product preformed
Design looks nice and it’s long handle helps with those area’s that are awkward to reach if your using it by your self.
13 December 2020
I found it quite heavy to use and have to use both hands and only for short periods of time. Also being thin, it is quite unpleasant as it moves over the bonier areas. I've no doubt that someone stronger with a more muscular frame would probably benefit from it more.
02 May 2020
Reply from Physique:
Thanks for your review, sorry to hear your experience with the product. Due to the percussive movement it may bounce on bony areas, best to try and avoid bones and stay on the larger muscle groups. They are weighted in the head to provide the necessary pressure for an effective massage. You can just rest the Thumper on the area to be treated without having to push down.
Super product. Really easy to use and so powerful for a home use item. I have managed to get into all my sore spots. Easy to change the angle you hold it on your body so you can work different parts of the muscle and really target areas of pain. I felt an immediate loosening and improved movement after the first use. After looking at this product for about a year am kicking myself I didn’t buy it sooner! It’s really brought as massive change to my physical well-being and movement!!
11 May 2020
Ok but not that powerful

Thanks for the feedback and sorry to hear you you felt the massager is not that powerful. Thumper Massagers are designed to provide the optimum depth of stoke to work the muscles efficiently. Massagers that are too powerful could cause damage to your muscles if applied incorrectly. Thumper depth of stroke ranges from 4-8mm, perfect to give our amazing body cells the kick start they need for your body’s healing process.

Really powerful and gets into all the knots. Long handle so easy to use on yourself.
05 July 2020
A very effective device. I little heavy for one handed self application to the back, but still achievable with the aid of strategically placed cushions!
13 July 2020
Excellent Best Vibration Therapy by far!
24 October 2018
Excellent machine, I use this in my osteopathic practice. Great at releasing muscle tension so I can get into the deeper connective tissue quicker. The design makes it so easy to hold and being moulded to your hand gives me greater flexibility in working with a patient I found the one with the handle too cumbersome and heavy and didn’t give the flexibility you need in working with a patient. I wish they also had a more powerful machine of the same design as the thumper verve.
In summary the verve is great working professionally with patients.
The thumpers with a single handle better for working on yourself.
17 November 2020
My chiropractor uses the Maxi pro when my back is in spasm and I thought I ought to buy something similar for home.
I originally wanted to buy the Sport one and came across the Verve. I chose this one as it is easier to pack when I travel as my back usually « go » after few weeks skiing and sailing.
It is very sturdy and works very well on the legs and lower back after a round of golf or running (I hold it with both hands, strap off for easier use on the lower back). It is a bit more difficult to use on your own shoulders (I have rotator cuff issues) but with the help of my opposite arm I find I can massage the knot area/trigger point quite well.
Overall, very happy with the Verve.
