I have been using this New Five Star FS8801-BLK Shiatsu Neck & Back Massager and have to say it is well worth the $34.99 price tag.
There are three buttons to the massager – one button to turn the heat on/off, one button to change the direction of rotation, and one button to turn off and on the massager.
Note: the massage automatically shuts down in 10 minutes – just in case you fell asleep or something with it on maybe?
There is both an AC adapter(110-220V AC to 12V DC) and car adapter included for home, office and car. I tried to use it in the car and it worked great, but probably don’t recommend using it while driving. I guess you could if you are waiting at a red light for a long time.
They said you could use this not just for the neck, should, and back, but also the legs and feet and arms – haven’t tried that out yet but I can say it is great for the neck and shoulder. Depending on how hard you want your massage you can pull on the straps to adjust pressure.
As someone who works in an office all day, sitting at the computer, this is a great massage tool to get those knots out. If you play a lot of sports or lift weights and have some sort of sports related soreness or muscle knot, this is a great tool as well.
They also have a great policy for customer satisfaction guaranteed: 30 days refund, no question asked and a factory Warranty of 3 years.
When you turn the heat option on it turns a little red light on in the massager. It reminds me of those massagers you see that they sell but added straps on – I think this is ingenious. One thing I wish was that the cord was longer or it was cordless so I can walk around with this on. I did purchase this with a coupon but this is my own thoughts without any influence – I think it is well worth the full price.
x Pressure and location control for all those hard to reach places. You can literally place this anywhere on your back and get at those knots.
x No batteries
x Great Value
x Longer cord needed, the cord included is about 5 feet (60inches) long.
x I wish I had one that covered my whole body
Be right back, I have to go turn on my massager. Edit: It’s been two weeks and going strong!
