TYMO White Whale Handheld Massager Review
There are not many handheld massagers that come with the heat element (which is a shame), but the TYMO White Whale Handheld Massager is precisely that - a handheld percussion massager that offers heat therapy.
One of the best electric massager out of all the handheld massager reviews we have done, the TYMO does not disappoint in every aspect.
Design & Material
Compared to many other handheld massagers, the TYMO White Whale has a noticeably slimmer design.
This makes it relatively lightweight for you to manoeuvre it around the body, which is a very important element for an elongated handheld percussion massager like this.
Adding to the portability aspect is its cordless design, a feature that is definitely appreciated because just a few years ago, this is almost something unheard of.
The rechargeable batteries last you up to 140 minutes if fully charged so you can chuck it into the carrying bag that's included, and bring it about with you literally ANYWHERE.
This means you can have a massage anytime you want, anywhere you are without relying on anyone.
With its noise reduction technology, you can be very discreet as the device produces a minimal 45dB sound only which one can say, is practically noiseless.
What we like about the White Whale though, is that it has a longer-than-average handle. This makes it very easy to reach the hard-to-target areas i.e. back/lower back.
If you'd look at this comparison chart we've made with other models, you can see that its handle bar is the longest out of all.
Because of this, the TYMO can cover 90% of body massage hence regarded by many to be one of the best handheld back massager.
Features & Functions
Modes & Speed
Equipped with a powerful and durable motor, the White Whale is able to deliver up to 3600 percussion per minute on the targeted area.
There are 3 modes for you to choose from - General, Hit and Fascia. Whether you would like to promote blood circulation, relieve stress or relax the muscles, you will find the best solution among these 3 modes.
Speed-wise, there are 5 levels for you to adjust. Depending if you'd like a relaxing or rough massage on a particular day, this handheld massager will let you personalize your experience as desired.
As mentioned in the beginning of this article, the TYMO White Whale is a handheld massager with heat.
Supplying 110°F that is the perfect heat therapy for a human body massager, it spreads warmth across the targeted area to reduce the lactic acid level within.
What this does is that it enhances the muscle massage provided by the massage nodes, thereby relaxing the tension and knots in the muscles and stimulating better blood circulation.
If you're one that appreciates heat therapy, this back massager will be ideal to melt your stress away.
TYMO certainly stood out from the rest with its massage heads.
Not because there are 5 of them, but because they are made of this high quality skin-friendly silicone material that can directly contact the skin of the whole body.
Unlike other cheap hard plastic massager head, this soft material adopted by the TYMO feels super comfortable on the skin.
This enhances the overall massage experience to the user, further relaxing and relieving the stress of all parts.
It's easier to maintain and is safer as well, and you can ensure that it wouldn't cause any pain or discomfort.
Material aside, the massage head configuration it comes with is worth a mention as well.
In particular, it comes with a "Body Oil" massage head that is specifically meant for oil massage. It taps whatever oils or creams you applied on your targeted areas into the body with ease and effectiveness - you certainly do not see this option anywhere else.
Other massage nodes include a "Shiatsu" head for acupressure and muscle relaxation, "Hexagonal" for when you want a deep tissue massage, a "Foot" tip for kneading the foot and leg, and a "Round Air Cushion" for the overall full body massage.
Aside from being in the colour black, this micro massage option is the biggest difference between the Black Whale and White Whale here. Both are from the same Dark Ocean Collection by the way.
What this entails is that the Black Whale is able to better target at smaller areas like the neck, elbow or other fragile parts for a deep tissue massage. Because it can be used on the face as well, it is regarded as the best back massager for women.

So yes, as mentioned in our Top 10 Best Handheld Massager Reviews here - if heat is an indispensable element in your massage requirements, then the TYMO White Whale Handheld Massager will be a really ideal option for you to consider.
It may be slightly pricier than other models you'd find, however, we think it is worth every penny paid for it.
Heat is not as common a feature for handheld massagers like these after all so if there is one, it is worth the extra money charged.
On top of that, you get lifetime warranty and customer service which really, is something you don't quite see often with handheld percussion massagers so yes, definitely highly recommend!
