One day, I want to be rich enough to have a professional massage therapist come to my house every week to give me a full-body, deep-tissue massage (let me dream, okay?!). But until I am rich, I guess I’ll have to settle for a more affordable alternative, like an at-home massager. Except, when the devices are as good as the ones below, is it really settling? I’m talkin’ body massagers with heat settings, customizable features, and multiple speeds, so it’s almost like having a spa at your home 24/7—but you only have to pay for it once for unlimited access. So if you’re tired of spending all day saying, “I really need a massage rn,” only to never…actually…get one, please scroll on for the 13 best at-home body massagers, from manual devices to electric massage guns, that’ll almost make you forget it’s not the ~real~ thing.

This Sculpting Face Roller
Skin Gym Face Sculptor Beauty Roller
Never mind the fact that these face massagers feel incredible rolling against your muscles, but they also help to de-puff and define (albeit temporarily, but still!) your facial features. Just make sure to apply face oil first for proper slip, then gently roll the wheels along the contours of your face to get to work.
This Deep-Tissue Massaging Gun
Flyby Deep Tissue Massage Gun
It’s customizable, portable, long-lasting, quiet, lightweight, affordable—what’s not to love about this massage gun? Almost 10k Amazon reviewers agree and give it 4.5 stars for all the versatility (all those convertible head attachments!), quality, and design.
This Mini Massager
Theragun Mini in White
Two-hundred bucks is a lot to shell out, yes, but if you compare the price to that of a professional deep-tissue massage, this mini vibrating gun will pay itself off after only a few uses. Unlike big, bulky massagers that are difficult to maneuver, this lil guy is ergonomic and easy to grip, even in hard-to-reach spots.
This Scalp Massager
Briogeo Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager
A scalp massager might not do much to improve hair growth, but it works wonders for relaxation, exfoliation, circulation—all the -ations. Give yourself a salon-worthy scalp rub while you shampoo your hair with this handheld shower tool.
This Vibrating Foot Spa
MaxKare Foot Spa/Bath Massager
Your at-home pedicure is absolutely not complete without one of these massaging foot baths. Fill the basin with water, then use the 16 rollers to work out aches and pains on the soles of your feet. And be sure to adjust the bubbles and vibration to suit your ~vibe~.
This Full-Body Massager
Naipo Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager with Heat
This full-body massager has a casual 42k positive reviews, so let’s go over all the reasons why you also need one. Thanks to the grips that allow you to create your own resistance, you don’t need anything to prop this one up, which means you’re not limited to sitting while using it. It also has two kneading directions, three speeds, optional heat, and will only set you back $50. Understand now why people love it?
This Handheld Back Massager
Thera Cane Massager
No batteries, cords, or chargers needed with this cool contraption. You decide the intensity of the massage by pulling the hook to apply pressure and rub right where you need it. Hold this cane massager however you need to reach the spot and let the plastic knobs do all the work.
This Kneading Pillow
Papillon Back Massager with Heat
Not just any pillow, this one contains four kneading nodes inside that move at three different speeds and directions, and it has optional heat. Prop it up behind your head for a little neck rub, or use to work out kinks in your back, shoulders, legs—you name it.
This Massaging Mat
Snailax Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat
Reclining massage chairs can cost you thousands (and you thought regular home furniture was expensive!), so make your own for less than a hundred. Set up this foldable massaging pad on your couch, desk chair, recliner, or whatever chair you have, and boom! You’ve got a DIY massage chair that offers full-back Shiatsu massage plus vibration.
This Massaging Ball
Footnanny Arch-N-Ball Massager Set
You really don’t need any fancy gadgets to get a good foot massage. Case in point: this massaging ball and sock set. The firm, spikey massager is especially effective at kneading the arches, balls, and heels of sore, tired feet. Apply a foot cream, put on the socks, then step on the ball and use your body weight to add pressure where you need it.
These Massaging Leg Wraps
Renpho Leg Massager for Circulation and Relaxation
Exactly what they look like, these adjustable leg sleeves wrap around your thighs, calves, and feet for a full lower-body massage all at once. Get yourself situated on the couch, then use the attached remote to adjust the modes, sequences, and intensities to suit your needs. Don’t want a full-leg massage? Weird, but that’s fine. The thigh wrap detaches for as much or as little coverage as you want.
This Fitness Massage Ball
Hyperice Hypersphere Mini Vibrating Fitness Massage Ball
When leg day workouts have you struggling to get up a flight of stairs, you need this vibrating ball to help loosen tight muscles and relieve serious tension. The sphere shape and rubber coating make it ideal for pinpointing specific areas that desperately need it, but you’ll really love it for its portable size and cordless design so you can take it with you pretty much anywhere.
This Eye Cream and Massaging Roller
Fenty Skin Flash Nap Instant Revival Eye Gel-Cream
This eye cream formulated with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and green tea is perfect on its own for hydrating and protecting delicate eye skin, but the massaging applicator that comes with it makes the deal that much sweeter. The refreshing, cooling metal tip on this tiny face roller gives your tired, puffy eye area the jolt it needs to wake up.
