4.0 out of 5 stars Weak heat but still well worth it!, November 27, 2009
This review is from: Conair NM10 Heated Shiatsu Neck Massager, Gray (Health and Beauty)
I recently purchased this item and love it! True it's not a soft, fluffy massage but it really works out the kinks in my neck. If you're feeling creative and don't mind holding it in slightly awkward positions, it can also be used to massage your scalp, shoulders, and even the sides of your foot! I found that while the massage seems a bit harsh at first, I quickly got used to it and learned to really appreciate the strong pressure of the rollers on my muscles. After just 15 minutes of use, my neck is so nice and loose it's almost a challenge to hold it up. Now that's relaxation!

While I'd love to give this puppy a full 5 stars, two things are preventing me from doing so. First of all, it's loud, and with it being on the neck it's hard to hear anything else but the whir of the motor, and secondly, the heat just plain sucks. I have a Homedic Massage Chair Pad and the heat on that think makes this one seem especially pathetic. You're lucky if it's even noticeable. The noise alone I can handle, but when it advertises heat and doesn't deliver, well... that's pretty disappointing.

Overall I've found this to be a surprisingly versatile device that's just wonderful for relaxation. Well worth the thirty dollars if you're not set on the heat function being worth anything.
