Pado 1

You may have seen or heard about the Pure-wave percussion massager by Pado. We have been working with this massager in our MTE programs and with our clients for about a year and would like to share the experience with you.  We will be using the CM7 model for this class and the massager is included with the price of the class.

 The powerful percussion head penetrates deep into the soft tissue to relieve pain and speed recovery.  The cordless design and adjustable power dial allows for optimal control over the unit depending on what area of the body we are working.  The CM7 model has a micro-vibration end that is great for face and scalp work. For more information please visit

 We have found that by incorporating this tool into our work we are able to work quicker, apply deeper pressure with less discomfort, and be more effective for our clients while we give our hands a break.  This class will explore all 7 attachments, how and where they work best, and how to use this tool for great self-care.
