Do you carry all your stress and muscle pain in your shoulders and neck like I do?
If so, you’ll fall in love Naipo’s Shiatus Massage Pillow just like I have. Not only have I been using the pillow on my neck and shoulders, I have also been using it on my lower/upper back, thighs, calves, feet and even my knees which has proved to be quite therapeutic in all my pain area since my body is riddled with severe arthritis so it feels likes every square inch of my body hurts constantly. My knees especially are really bad since as I’m dealing with bone on bone friction causing severe pain all the time.
My doctor referred me for physical and massage therapy which literally costs a fortune per visit if I want to stay ahead of the pain game. When I was approached by Naipo’s marketing team to test their WONDERFUL pillow, I jumped at the chance!
I have been reading a lot of Shiatsu therapy (which means ‘finger therapy in Japanese which uses comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to adjust the body’s physical structure and balance energy flow) which is suppose to provide pain relief so I thought I have nothing to lose and everything to gain if it works; I could reduce the amount of medications I take on a daily basis! I am sick of taking prescription medications that don’t really don’t get rid of the pain but rather mask it. I have been taking a cocktail of strong pain medications, anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxers; all these medications either make me physically sick to my stomach or leave me feeling like a zombie when I wake up in the morning.
Earlier I referred to it as WONDERFUL and it TRULY IS; after having used it daily for the past few weeks it has become a part of me; it is my personal masseuse! Those little massage nodes that rotate clockwise and counter clockwise are a tremendous help to kneading out all the kinks and knots and offer up what feels like an authentic massage; the heat setting is truly a blessing! I find that the more I press my body part on those nodes the more effect massage I get! Those nights that I have trouble sleeping cause I am trying to process the cluster of thoughts from the day I just had or stressing out about what tomorrow will bring; I turn on the pillow and in minutes I am so relaxed, stress free and ready for a great night’s sleep!
The Naipo Shiatus Massage Pillow has a soft velvet cover that is zipper removable should it need cleaning and detailing. The 4 emulating massage nodes offers 360 degree rotating kneading that changes direction every 60 seconds. It is simple to use with the one power button; press it once and it will begin to work with the warm infrared heat function, press the power button again and the massager works without heat and if you want to turn it off; hold down the button for three seconds. If you forget to turn it off or fall asleep during your massage don’t worry, it will turn itself off in 20 minutes.
The massage pillow is perfect to use anywhere in the house provided your near a power source as it comes with a plug in adaptor. Want to get a massage and pain relief in the car? No problem, it comes with a car adaptor that can be plugged into the cigarette lighter or the 12V socket in your car. I love the fact that it has a built in adjustable strap that can be attached to the head rest and positioned perfectly to massage while you’re driving. Now I don’t recommend massaging and driving, I have only ever used it as a passenger in my car for fear that I may fall asleep from being too relaxed while driving; yikes, that could be catastrophic!
You can get your own affordable massager at Naipocare where they have a full line of products designed to optimize your health and well being that include shoulder, back, neck foot, eye and full body massagers.
