My original review is below. I was just reading the reviews for this product, and I saw a couple things I really disagree with, and wanted to make a comment on. I would hate to see someone not get such a great therapeutic device because of misinformation.
First, this device totally reaches every part of your neck, and it works like a charm to work out the spasms there.
Second, this is not a thick, bulky device at all. In fact, considering all the power this product has, I am surprised it is so sleek.
Anyway, I just wanted to throw my two cents in, and let you know this product is still working great. I have bought a few more for
Friends with bad backs/necks or disabilities, and they have had remarkable results with this product.
I really love this product and have had so much relief because of it!
December 28, 2013, Original Review:
Oh, where to start...
First, this massager is simply AMAZING!! Don't even think about it...buy it. If you don't like it you can return it (but that won't happen). Don't suffer another day in pain.
I have had back pain for years and I have tried every procedure and device on the market. The Zyllion ZMA-13 is heads about the rest! It is also half the price of other massagers. While searching the web, I found almost the same massager being sold at the Relax the back Store for over twice the price of the Zyllion! [...].
So let me tell you more about this massager. It is very stylish and truly a classy and expensive looking unit. It appears to be covered in black leather, with a very thick nylon type webbing over the 4 heated massage heads. The 4 heads rotate in opposite directions to deliver a wonderfully soothing timed program that lasts about 20 minutes. This is a really nice feature and if you click the on button again, the unit will start up again for another 20 minutes. The heat is also at the perfect temperature.
While rotating, the 4 balls light up a bright red (very cool looking) and appear to have some "give" to them, in the top part of the roller, so it can get into the muscle spasms better. You can put all your weight on it, and the unit doesn't have any problem at all. This unit is not only stylish, but obviously made with extremely high quality materials.
When my unit arrived, I had a headache. As soon as I got it out of the box, I put it on my bed and started working out some of my worst spasms. Although it hurts to go over some areas, the heat from the rotating massagers really helped make it feel better.
I worked my neck, head and shoulder unit and my headache was gone! I am not kidding. No, I do not work for this company, I am not getting paid to write a review and I even paid for two units myself! I am not a shill...I am one very very happy customer who would like to help other folks who have suffered like me, feel better! ☺. If you have been in the kind of pain I have been, you will understand.
I also have a lot of sciatica issues, and worked my mid back, low back, and then I worked into the glut musles (yes, I sat on it!!) and then worked my side. You have to remember that all these muscles groups are connected, and even if you start to work the knot out in one area, you need to loosen the areas around that area to keep the knots out. I am guessing you need to take time and use this unit until you really have loosened up a lot of your body.
After I finished my session, I took a short walk, stretched and drank two glasses of water. I cannot stress how important it is to drink water after you work on spasms and knots like this. What happens is you release lactic acid when you start to break down the spasms and the body needs to get rid of that waste product. If you do not drink the fluids, the acid has no place to go...get my drift? DRINK WATER!
Lastly, I have to say that this massager is really not only an Excellent value, but it is an indispensable tool to help you get rid of pain. There should be one of these in every PT office in America! I can already tell I will be able to start cancelling my deep tissue work at least half the sessions (she can still help me stretch). I would have gladly paid the price the other store was offering for this unit considering the quality and amount of power this machine gives off. However, I am glad I didn't have to!
Also, the unit came with a standard 120 v power adapter and a separate car power adopter.
If you press the button on the side of the unit once, the rollers and heat comes on. Then if you press it again the heat goes off but the rollers remain on. If you want the unit to turn off completely, you just hold the button down for about 3 seconds.
Lastly, I read some other reviews that complained about the cord not staying put. I had no problem at all. When you connect the unit, be sure to twist it and make sure it is secure.
This is not a 5 star massager...it is an 8 star massager!!
Sorry for the long review, but I am just very excited and happy to have found a device that really is helping me.
