The Head Massage Tingler

Updated on September 14, 2014

What Is Head Massager Tingler

Have you ever tried the head massage tingler? If you did then you know all you need to know about it, besides the fact that it gives you a unique, thrilling sensation, as nothing else. It produces a long lasting relaxation, and it melts away stubborn headaches.

Is that simple, just rubbing a few wires on your head would produce these great sensations. How does it work? I try an explanation, but to be honest, I don't have any idea.

If you haven't tried the massage tingler yet, well it's time to do it now.

How Does the Massage Tingler work?

Does anybody really knows how the head massager works?

Here a few examples of what other Internet sources say about the head massager - tingler:

"This strange looking copper tool gently massages millions of nerve endings in your head and neck, and affects acupressure points."

How can you massage nerve endings?

"The makers of The Tingler say that it massages millions of nerve endings in your scalp, affecting acupressure points and giving you goose bumps that produce painkilling, stress-relieving, brain-awakening endorphins."


"The Head Tingler gently stimulates the millions of nerve endings on your scalp and neck, as well as acupressure points, helping to relieve stress!"

A more honest description, but still, acupressure points? Nah...

"The Tingler massages millions of nerve endings in your scalp and produces stress relieving, brain awakening, endorphin."

Again the nerve endings massage... And the brain-awakening endorphin...

"You'll feel as happy as Buddha, and there's no risk of going blind. Fan's swear by its stress-relieving abilities, claiming it even cures headaches."

I actually love this one

"Spider-Shaped Device that taps into your body's electrical fields."

Can we use it to jump start a car?

"The Tingler has exceptional healing properties, eliminating stress and tension. It is made from copper which acts as a conductor tapping into your electrical fields."

A little more creativity, please.

I know that this isn't probably the most interesting subject for a profit driven corporation to research on. But nobody cares to find out how a dozen of wires can generate such strong sensations?

Buy The Tingler now - Where to Get a Head Massager Spider

The tingler was first seen in Australia under a name that evokes stronger sensations. One year after the Australia, the head massager showed up in North America under the name of The Tingler, Head Massager.

In America, it was sometimes referred to as the "legalized ecstasy".

Buy a head massage tingler from Amazon. A no fuss, simple, yet effective device, and best thing about it: dirt cheap.

What Do I think about Head Massager?

A Personal View about the Tingler

Where does the tingling come from?

I think that the tingling effect is produced by electric currents that discharge into our body, through the scalp. Nothing new until now.

Where does the electricity come from? From heaven?

The electricity is static electricity produced by the wires when rubbed against the skull.

Update: It looks like static electricity is not the source of the energy discharge. I have confirmation that it works on bald people too. On bald skulls the produced static electricity is very little compared to hairy skulls. So, it must be from heaven, LOL... Now I am completely disoriented, I don't have any logical explanation. Any comments from a scientist?

Why doesn't this work on other body areas?

Where did you try it? Be honest! It works on the skull only, maybe because of the lower skin resistance on this body area.

Does it Work on Bald People?

You tell me! I don't have any bald close friend to test it. This would give us a better understanding. I suspect that the results will be less spectacular with bald people, because the hair produces more static electricity than the skin, when it's rubbed.

Update: As you can see on the comments area, it does work on bald people.

My opinion is based on observation and common sense, and It might be very close to the real truth.

Do you have a funny story about the tingler? Many people report very weird sensations when they try it for the first time. For many it is just pure relaxation.

Tell us what do you think about the Head Massager Tingler?

Have you ever used it? If you haven't, would you buy one to try it?

      @lbrummer: The tingler is nothing like a massage, is way different. You get the relaxation but only after the tingling. You should try it.

      Loraine Brummer 5 years ago from Hartington, Nebraska

      I hadn't heard about the head massager until your lens. If it feels as good as it does when the beautician washes my hair, I think I'll have to try one. Just thinking about a head massage makes me want to take a nap-----now that's stress relief.

    Kids Love the Tingler

    Watch this baby getting a "massage" with the tingler. A strong sensation for the young guy, but he likes it anyway and he asks for more.

    I remember my daughter being a toddler, used to lick 9 volts batteries. She would make, funny faces but she wouldn't give up her new toy.

    I am sure, many of us have similar stories with tingling.

    Digital Head and Eye Massager

    Regular head and eye massage for a few minutes is a great practice. It prevents vision problems and helps to reduce stress and to have a better sleep. Most people don't know how to do it, or they won't do it by themselves.

    The Breo Breeze head and eye massager is a fun way to have head and eye massage.

    How does the tingler work? - How Do You Think the Head Massager Works?

    I thought at a few explanations for the unique sensation given by the spider head massager. What is your opinion on this?

    Or maybe someone did some research... Naah, too cheap of a device. Who would spend money on research, when the sales margin is so low.

    And yes, "massages the nerve endings" is a good answer, if this is your opinion...

    How does the head massager works? It captures the cosmic energy or some kind of electric field?

        Other Names for the The Tingler


        One simple device and so many names.

        Because the tingler didn't really have an international marketing campaign, there isn't an established name for it. People have been called it many names. Here are a few of them:

        Head Massager Spider


        Head scratcher massager

        Octopus massager

        The tingler

        Spider head massage device

        head tingler

        Head and scalp massager

        head massage tingler

        My opinion on the tingler is based on my own observation and common sense, this means that I could be totally wrong.

        If you don't agree with my opinions, contradict me.

        Well, contradict me even if you agree with me, or just say something...

        Or maybe you have a question for the expert.

            I've seen these in the stores and have wondered about them. I've got quite the variety of massage tools, and will consider one. Thanks for the info. (I used to be a massage therapist. I always preferred giving people tips that they could do on their own.)

            Roger, copper seems to make a little difference, indeed. Probably because of its superior electrical conductivity. And also it's nice to avoid scratches. :)

          • profile image

            anonymous 5 years ago

            In the US, the original Tingler is made of copper which is supposed to have a better effect. It's also softer and won't scratch at all. Any comments on that?

            @jasminesphotogr: You definitely have to try it. The sensation is indescribable and is different from person to person.
