Whether it's chronic muscle stiffness or the soreness that comes from an epic workout, there are some pains that can't be soothed by those automatic massage chairs. If you haven't tried a handheld massager, they can be a lifesaver - and the Vortix Muscle Massager aims to be the go-to therapy tool no matter what your aches are.
