    Thanks

    It's called a "handheld massager".

    As opposed to a "foot held massager" I suppose. I'd just call it a "massager".

    A massager by itself is too easily confusable with a masseur, especially because the words masseur/masseuse have connotations that go well beyond the purely physically-functional ones of a massager.
