Thumper Massager Inc.

Thumper Set to Grow European and middle Eastern Markets

Canadian-made Thumper® line of deep muscle massagers proving popular among healthcare professionals and health-conscious consumers of all ages

Toronto, Canada -- Thumper Massager Inc. is looking for new distributors for continental Europe and the Middle East in its second appearance at MEDICA.

“We have been developing massage products that make people feel good for nearly 30 years,” explains Thumper’s President Ines Sajgalik. “Our products have received overwhelming positive response in North America. But we recognize these products also have an excellent fit with the health and wellness-conscious lifestyles of Europeans and other emerging populations.”

Thumper is currently accepting applications for established European and Middle East distributors for professional, retail and wholesale sectors. Applicants should apply in person at Hall 4 Stand # 4C40 .

Eight years ago Thumper had their entire massager product line CE approved for distribution in the European market. The company has since modified its product offering to meet new RoHS standards, which came into effect in EC countries this past July.

Since 1974, Thumper Massager has been improving on its patented deep muscle percussion massager originally designed by a chiropractor. Today, the company’s various made-in-Canada massagers are giving comfort to the patients and clients of about 200,000 doctors, massage therapists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, nurses, conditioning coaches, fitness trainers and even veterinarians -- world wide. No other massager is being used in more countries than Thumper.

“But we are not resting on our laurels,” says Sajgalik. “This is a very exciting time for us as we expand our business and make our “feel good” products available to a broader population. Young or mature, active or for those individuals who due to their lifestyles cannot get enough exercise our products can be used by all people. Being here at MEDICA last year convinced us of that.”
