Wahl Rewards Moms by Making Every Day Mother's Day in May

Pain Management Leader Provides Moms With the Relief They Need

STERLING, IL--(Marketwired - May 08, 2014) - Arguably the most important, and rewarding, job in America also comes with more than its fair share of physical pain. With the average mom spending just under 40 hours each week transporting children, carrying them around, cooking for them, cleaning up after them and running household errands, motherhood is full-time job. And as a result, moms bear more pain than the general population and are more likely to experience weekly pain in the core areas of back, neck and shoulders, according to research conducted by Harris Interactive and Wahl.

To help moms in pain, Wahl, the inventor of the electric massager, is offering relief every day in the month of May with its Massager a Day Giveaway. Moms, and those looking to give a mom some relief, are invited to visit the new Wahl Wellness Facebook Page and click on the sweepstakes app for a chance to win the latest in hand-held therapeutic massage. Wahl will be conducting a random drawing each day to award winners one of Wahl's new therapeutic at-home massagers: the ultra-powerful Deep Tissue Therapeutic Massager, the total comfort All-Body Massager or the Hot/Cold Massage Gel Pack, a first-of-its-kind pain management solution that combines three treatments into one.

"As a mom, I appreciate just how much goes into raising children, day in and day out," said Jenny McLaughlin, product manager for Wahl's massager division. "That's why I'm excited to celebrate all that moms do while offering them the much-needed relief they deserve."

About the Studies

In 2013, Wahl and Harris Interactive asked 1,000 people, including 300 moms with children under 18, to share their pain. The verdict: Moms bear more pain than the general population. In total, 84 percent of moms experienced muscle or joint pain with seven out of 10 experiencing it in three or more places. Moms not only had more aches, but they were 25 percent more likely to experience it on a weekly basis, at least in the core areas of back, neck and shoulders.

In a separate study, Wahl investigated the physical demands moms endure. The survey among 500-plus moms revealed that raising a child is a full time job with the average mom spending just under 40 hours each week transporting children, carrying them around, cooking for them, cleaning up after them and running household errands.
