Portable electric pillow Shiatsu massager for your back with heat, love it!
on September 26, 2011
This is a great electric massager for almost any area of soreness. It works out kinks and the gentle heat is great. I like to prop it up with a bed pillow and lean it up against my lower back in bed as I fall asleep. A towel tones down the pressure if the massaging balls are too much pressure for you. Nice massager to drag around the house with you where ever you sit or relax. Has auto shut off after 15 minutes
I find that sitting in a chair and using the Shiatsu option is too rigorous for my neck, but is great for my shoulders & back. Laying on the massager is way too much pressure for me any way that you slice it. Professionally, I like a firm & strong masseuse if that helps you to gauge the strenth of this massage pillow. No battery operated option is available, 110 volts plug in only.
Even beter option by Homedics (5 stars rating from me)...
There is another more expensive Homedic massage pillow out there that looks like this one, but it has more options as a Shiatsu massager (Homedics CP-SP25HA), this one is 5 star all the way! It has a vibration, and combo vibration & Shiatsu mode. Heat can be turned on or off. Get this one instead if you can find it. The vibration is a nice option to have for gentle relief. One click for Shiatsu, 2 clicks for vibration. Separate button for the heat option. Auto shut off after 15 minutes. I think that I paid $50 for this one. No battery operated option is available for this one either, 110 volts plug in only.
Either way, enjoy!
