The HoMedics Therapist Select Plus is a great percussion massager gun that is especially helpful in soothing some joint and muscle pains. In this product review, we are going to go over the product features of the Therapist Select Plus.
Looking For A Massage Gun?
My wife got a Therapist Select Plus for herself as she does intense and rigorous pole dancing training and after her sessions she feels muscle soreness all over. I use this as well every now and then after my calisthenics workout. We have a back massager but we can’t use that to target specific muscles and so we shopped around and saw HoMedics Therapist Select Plus.
HoMedics Therapist Select Plus Features
It vibrates via a gentle stabbing motion and not circular like some home massagers. It is easy to use- just direct the massager to the joint or muscle and then turn it on by pressing the intensity button.
Look and Feel
The build feels premium. The gun is coated in rubber and has a nice feel to it. A bit on the heavy side, this weighs 1.2 kg. Increasing the intensity settings means putting in extra grip effort to make sure you do not drop it.
HoMedics Therapist Select Plus Controls
Controls is as easy as it gets. Turn the power on and off at the bottom. The band on the bottom base turns blue when on. There is an Intuitive touchscreen control for easy operation and digital battery read out. The left side shows the intensity settings and the right screen shows the battery level. There are two touch buttons marked with a large + and – sign which is used to increase/decrease the intensity.
On this particular model you can have to 6 intensities with varying RPM.
Motor Type and Intensities
The Therapist Select Plus has a brush motor and as I mentioned earlier it comes in 6 variable intensities ( one level increases by 100 rpm).
- 1st speed – 2200rpm (seems ideal)
- 2nd speed – 2300
- 3rd speed – 2400
- 4th speed – 2500
- 5nd speed – 2600
- 6nd speed – 2700
The thing to consider is that the faster the intensity setting, the faster it is to drain the battery.
Single charge can lasts up to 4 hours on an intensity 1 and 2 settings. The charging port is found on the base of the Therapist Select Plus massager. When you plug it in, the light band will indicate it is charging and you can’t use the device while plugged. A full charge takes 4.5 hours.
It comes in a convenient storage case, the material looks well made. There are slots for each attachment.
Homedics Therapist Select Plus Attachments
This model comes with 6 attachments – each attachment is for a targeted muscle.
It is easy to remove and pop a new one.
- Wedge – tight knots in neck and upper back
- Flat with acupressure – small areas like hamstrings and chest
- Large ball – large muscle groups
- Small ball – overall use for small /large muscle groups
- U shaped – muscles along spine and around joints
- Trigger point – problem areas and pressure points
You get a couple of extra rubber seal replacements that goes around the attachments.
I’m really impressed with the HoMedics Therapist Select Plus as it does what it says it does and I believe this is a good investment to have one especially if you live an active lifestyle or just growing old and the joints starts to ache as signs of aging.
I like that this has 6 attachments for different muscle groups which really makes a difference on what muscles need some massaging. The battery life is sufficient, 4 hours is more than enough.
The next model up is the HoMedics Therapist Select Pro which has a longer battery, brushless motor, and higher intensity but it has less attachments. I’m not sure if you can tell the difference between brush and brushless motors.
