Purchased this because my job is quite stressful and tends to show itself in my neck and upper back from tensing... it’s driven me mad for months but time has come to deal with it and I don’t want to be pumped full of drugs etc so looking for alternatives I found this and after reading reviews came to the conclusion that this could be just what I’ve been looking for...
it came well packaged and certainly a well-constructed product. The switching of directions of massage provides a "natural" feel in the way a maseur/masseuse would vary direction of massage with their hands. The initial feel of having a device draped over your shoulders is "odd" but you will get used to that very quickly - especially once it gets to work on your tired/stressed muscles. Not gonna lie the first few times I used it I found it almost painful and uncomfortable on my muscles but no pain no gain and all that I persevered and I’m happy to say that I’m now reaping the benefits slowly but surely ... my muscles aren’t nearly half as tense as they were
it’s a bulky bit of kit but it does what it says on the tin... it’s not stupidly heavy but weighty at the same time... it’s not so heavy that it weighs down and Is uncomfortable ... at the end of the day you kinda control to an extent how much pressure is on your shoulders because the end of the straps are designed to your hands to go through therefore enabling you to keep it in place etc
once I’ve managed to get my back and shoulders in check I’m going to move to my butt and see if I can massage it into shape!
