There’s nothing worse than perpetual aches and pains in your back or neck. The throbbing is constant, and it’s nearly impossible to find a solution.
Massages are expensive, yoga has mixed results, and the chiropractor is honestly pretty scary. Personal massage devices for back and neck pain have long been around, but how can one size fit all?
A therapeutic wrap with a built-in massage device seems to be the answer to that problem. It can mold to suit any person or area of the body they choose and eliminate aches and pains wherever they might be.
The Wahl Shiatsu Heated Massage Wrap has versatility built in its design, and shoppers swear by it. The flexible material makes it easy to place where you’re hurting — your neck, back, hips, legs — without any uncomfortable positioning or adjusting.
“At first I figured I could use this Wahl Shiatsu Massage Wrap for my calf muscles and it works wonders after spending the entire 3rd shift on my legs,” one shopper explained. “But then I tried it on my back and it helped get rid of a huge knot I had. I definitely recommend this wrap for a large variety of muscle aches.”
Six different powerful massage nodes are located throughout the wrap, so it literally has you covered no matter where you’re aching. There’s also dual rotation, which helps the massage nodes hit any angle, in addition to a heating option for optimal relief.
Not only does the technology replicate finger-like kneading, but the customizable adjustment levels can help you get the right amount of pressure. And, if the built-in pressure is not enough for you, the hand loops at each end of the wrap allow you to squeeze the massager in for a deeper knead.
One shopper said: “This massage wrap has been a nice little tool in my arsenal against muscle pain! I like to put it on my lower back and sit back in the couch and let it do its thing. I find that if I just hold it against my back with the straps, it is not enough pressure for me. I need to lean back against something to have it dig in a little deeper. The heat function is wonderful, and it also reverses direction so you can get the pain at multiple angles!”
The soft and flexible fabric allows for the heat given off by the device to be comfortable and soothing, how any massage should be. For some customers, it took minutes to feel relief.
“I have Fibromyalgia, and I absolutely love that the rollers have a heat option that eases pain and tension,” wrote a five-star reviewer. ”20 minutes and I was on cloud nine. Thanks, Wahl!”
Though some were skeptical of how well a handheld device could work, the results spoke for themselves.
“It's surprisingly good for a handheld unit,” wrote one customer who titled their review ‘This Thing is Bananas.’ “The design is smart to apply pressure properly. The rollers are pretty powerful, and it does a good job. I had some other people try it as well, and everyone seemed to enjoy it.”
