2020s Authority In Back Massagers.

Description

There’s that knot in your back again. It’s been bothering you all day, but it’s just...out...of reach. Misery. No need to book an expensive trip to the spa - and besides, they don’t have an opening for a week. Put the power in your own hands, literally, and try out a back massager.

Since my full time job is a retail associate in a large building materials company, I’m constantly trying to stretch or roll out tight spots and strains in my back and arms from carrying machinery & materials all day. A back massager is where it’s at. Instead of struggling over my foam roller, much to the entertainment of my girlfriend, I can simply sit and let the chair do the work for me. And I don't have to tell y'all, after a full day on your feet, sometimes there is no greater joy than a simple sit. Add a massage in the mix and I might as well be the Queen of England.

Or just a dude in his apartment...

So! The holiday season is coming up, and the online shopping gods have sent me as your Yuletide angel to gift you with this roundup review of five back massagers. We’ll cover the features and facts of each product so you can pick the best one for you or anyone you wish to bless with bliss. I’ll say it ahead of time, You’re Welcome.

She really enjoys her Snailax Shiatsu Massage Pad!

Snailax - Shiatsu Massage Seat Cushion

This full-seated chair delivers an adjustable two-level Shiatsu style massage and includes warming rollers with infrared heat. That is some double-time stress relief. It’s a no-effort required full-size chair pad that can reside wherever you need it to - an office chair, the couch, or even dining room chair (for extra tension relief during those stressful family holiday dinners).

The detachable leather pad offers extra durability and some optional padding for a more gentle massage. With the remote control, you can pinpoint specific spots on your back for a focused massage and cover your neck down to your lower back.

"I absolutely LOVE this thing! It gets in deep to massage out those unreachable muscles in under my shoulder blades, which is where I've had the most problems this last year or so." - 5 ⭐ from Tiffany B. on Amazon

Papillon - Neck Massager

Shifting to something a bit more compact, but still in the wheelhouse of Shiatsu deep-tissue level massage, is this versatile pad. Or, should I say, massage pillow. It features optional heat, three speeds of massage, and multiple power supply options so you can use it anyplace you go. We're talking: living room, car, train, workplace. You name it.

Not just for your neck, you can place this lightweight pillow anywhere from the back of your neck to your lower lumbar region. Simply lean back onto the pad and relax, do some work, or sip some brandy. Even better, do all three at the same time.

PerkyPack - Deep Tissue Kneading Massager

If you want to up the ante from a compact pillow but retain the portability and area focus, this deep tissue massager will do the trick. It crams a lot of potential in a small package by housing 16 massaging nodes for next level kneading. There are 3 massage speeds and 2 directions, giving you plenty of options to find that perfect combo. The double-strap arm holds help you stabilize the pad on your back and provide extra pressure when you need it. But if your arms need a break (you're relaxing after all) just lean back with the pad against a chair.

It folds down into the included tote to be completely portable, so you can be that parent at your kid’s next piano recital. Don’t worry, you can set an automatic shut off for 15 minutes for when you fall asleep during the playing of Debussy’s Clair de Lune.

Comfier - Neck and Back Massager with Heat

Now, for the most ultimate of massage pads. This full-body chair pad comes with optional heat, vibration, adjustable air compression, spot massage, and more. Gentle heating functions keep your muscles relaxed and toasty while you toggle through the various rollers and massage modes. Add in some air compression by inflating the back or seat, along the waist and thighs, for extra pressure relief. Target a specific trouble spot or go for a full body treatment. The cover is removable and washable for easy cleaning, so no stress if you take a snooze and start to drool.

To be honest, I dream about this massager. I've probably visited this page 100 times. This has every possible feature on it & I can only imagine the level of comfort & relaxation this item brings while at home. I plan on purchasing it for Christmas for my wife & then hopefully she'll share & I'll use it. 😆

🎉 Gifting 🎊

A back massager makes a stellar gift. I’ve never known anyone to not be completely ecstatic to receive one. Think about your grandma who has some extra stiffness in the morning - a heated massaging chair pad at her breakfast table will get her feeling better to start the day. Your cranky co-worker with terrible posture who’s constantly cracking his back for relief - a personal massager will put him in a much better mood for that afternoon meeting. Or your sister with the heavy toddler cough cough - surprise her with the gift of zen, you know she needs it.

Summary

A great gift for a loved one, or yourself, a personal back massager can turn a grinch into a Cheer Meister. From improving back pain and mobility to enriching your daily health and adding a valuable piece to your wellness routine, it can offer nothing but relief and positivity.

The five products above offer a nice range of variability and all deliver high quality and pro-level tension-relief. All that’s left to do is figure out which one will be the best back massager for you...or your mom, or friend, or neighbor - you get the idea. Remember, there’s no such thing as being too relaxed and pain-free.
