Working at a desk all day usually leaves me in poor posture. I am always adjusting myself in the chair – leaning forward, leaning back, resting my chin on my hand. I end up with neck/shoulder pain and a need to relieve it. Hubs works outdoors all day, lugging heavy stuff on his shoulders, so he is usually in need of a deep massage as well. Thanks so much to truMedic, we can now get our own deep massage from the comfort of our own home.
InstaShiatsu+ Pillow Massager With Heat
*Contains affiliate links
One of truMedic’s latest products in the InstaShiatsu+ Pillow Massager With Heat. This portable massager can be used laying down or sitting up, & is adjustable for various body parts. I have even used the massager on my sore calf muscles!
Velcro straps on the back make it possible to attach the massager to a chair. Unfortunately, they were not long enough to wrap around my desk chair, which is where I want to use it the most. Nothing like getting a massage while working, right?
The pillow massager has 4 massage heads – 2 on each side. They auto-rotate in 2 different directions after about a minute.
Heat function helps you achieve better relaxation and comfort. This is an optional setting and can be shut off the heat by pushing the power button, once for heat & twice for no heat. Holding the button for a few seconds shuts off the device.
As for the comfort of the InstaShiatsu+ Pillow Massager With Heat, I’d say it was a bit rough on my neck at first. I did have to lay a towel over the device while using it to help relieve the harshness of the massage heads. After that, the comfort was much easier to achieve. I did eventually get used to the massage heads and do not use a towel over it anymore.
My advice for first using the InstaShiatsu+ Pillow Massager With Heat – lay with your head almost hanging over the pillow. I did not do that at first and it was very uncomfortable. The massage heads were hitting the side of my head behind my ears. I adjusted myself until I found the sweet spot. It then massaged the sides of my neck and hit the most needed areas on the top of my shoulders.
I can say that it is very easy to fall asleep while using the pillow massager! I have done this a few times because it is so relaxing. Not a deep sleep, but just enough to help energize you.
The hubs has used the pillow massager a few times, the first time was when he had a very sore shoulder/neck after work. He was hesitant at first to use the massage pillow but, after a bit of talking into, he tested it out and was amazed. It really did help relieve the pain and not aggravate it. He has had the experience of a massager making things worse in the past and the InstaShiatsu+ Pillow Massager did not do that.
