I Bought a Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager

This is not a sponsored post or ad. I bought this myself with my own money.

This has to be one of my most inspired purchases. I did not know what I was missing.

I have tense neck and shoulder muscles. When I am sitting, my shoulders start curling up and tensing. When I lie down during the day, it is usually because I am feeling dizzy which makes me more tense. Even if I’m not dizzy, many times I have my phone or tablet in my hands playing games, watching videos, reading or seeing how well we’re treating each other on social media.

I try to relax, sit straight instead of slouching and stretching. But, it’s not enough and I still get and stay tense.

I do have a massager that does work well enough, sometimes. But, it is a handheld percussion massager and when massaging the muscles close to the base of my head, the vibrations affect my ears and make me dizzy.

Stretching only helps so much. Especially as a person with a disability, I know I am sitting and lying down more than what people normally do when they are at home.

Then I bought my new massager.

I started smiling within 10 seconds of putting it on my shoulders.

Maybe it was 5 seconds.

Each arm sits in what I can best describe as a sling and is what helps keep the massager in its place or helps you move it around on your back. And it is actually more comfortable than it looks.

There are two sets of nodes that give that kneading feeling. They look like balls that have been cut in half. There are two sets and each set has two larger and two smaller nodes. You can turn on the infra red heating but the heat generated feels more like a person putting their hand on you, not heating pad heat strength.

They also knead clockwise and counter-clockwise knead. It switches back and forth every 90 to 120 seconds. You do have the option to shut it off. The massager does has a timer that automatically shuts it off at 15 minutes.

I have only used this on my back which is where I tend to need it. My friend also used it on his legs and found it really helped.

All in all, I think this is a great purchase. I’ve had it a few days now and have used it every day. This is definitely going to be one of my best ever purchases.
