German term or phrase: Schalltonkopf/Schallübertragungskopf/Schallkugelko
I think that all of the above are basically the same thing. My text involves using a sound wave producing device to massage the body and the above words are attachments, of which there are a few different types depending on the type of massage required. Schallkugelkopf is more specific than the first two and is obviously a spherical attachment. My problem is I can't think of a tidy translation.

Ultrasound transducer
Explanation:
You're right, all three terms seem to refer to pretty much the same thing, with the only exception that the last one is spherical.
Note, however, that while German does tend to use Schallkopf, what is really being referred to is ULTRASOUND. A few years back, I did a number of translations of manuals for medical ultrasound devices; they often referred to the Schallkopf as an ultrasound transducer. See also the URL below.
