Huntington village’s newest business offers a line of products that help ease the pain and stress that can make life difficult.
Kings Park-based massage, electrotherapy and pain management company truMedic hosted last week the grand opening of its first retail space at 338 New York Ave.
Hundreds of people moved through the new store over the course of the day to view truMedic’s range of products that include massage chairs, personal massagers, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation units and blood pressure monitors.
TruMedic was created in 2014, and later in 2017 opened its 32,000-square-foot headquarters in Kings Park that houses their warehouse operations, offices and showroom. Prior to the construction of the new retail location, truMedic established a reputation for quality products in the message and pain management industry through online sales.
“Prior to the opening of our retail store, our full line of pain relief massage units were primarily available online or through select big box retailers,” Russell Izzo, truMedic’s CEO and president, said. “Now, with our central Island location, customers from throughout Long Island can walk into our storefront and test-drive our products for themselves.”
Anthony Izzo, vice-president and spokesman for truMedic, said the company’s slogan is “products to live life better,” and that’s just what they plan to offer to customers of the new Huntington location.
“These are all products that you can take home and get a nice foot massage, back massage, shoulder massage, neck massage or aromatherapy,” Anthony Izzo said. “Everything you need to really create that spa-like atmosphere.”
Izzo said the products at truMedic are designed for customer convenience. TruMedic allows customers to receive the treatments of a spa in the comfort of their own homes.
A wide variety of customers take advantage of the relaxation and pain relief offered by the truMedic line of products.
“Anyone whose athletics, that jogs or runs, and they overwork their muscles and want relief, somebody who has constant neck or back pain and everyone in between,” Izzo said. “You can use our products for enjoyment or you can use them to help relieve painful tension.”
A recent increase in name recognition and expanding sales made this the right time for a flagship retail location, Izzo said, and Huntington is the perfect location for truMedic’s first retail store because it is “a very vibrant area with an active population.”
Izzo said the reactions that he sees from people who try the truMedic products make his job worthwhile.
“Even when people hesitate to put on one of our products, when they do put it on they melt away. A smile just comes to their face, they feel fantastic and they are always delighted that they followed through and tried it,” Izzo said.
“To hear people talk about how the products helped them get through a day or how it relieves their pain is just a real high… it’s fantastic.”
Customers can try truMedic’s massage chairs and personal massagers at the Huntington location seven days a week or online at Trumedic.com.
