The holiday season may mean evenings by the fire, delicious meals with family and mornings opening presents, but it also brings hours in touch-and-go traffic, overcrowded trains and flights in seats that are entirely too small for your legs. Add that to a night at the in-laws on your niece's stiff twin trundle and we can already envision just how many pops of anti-inflammatories and visits to the acupuncturists will be required to salvage our stiff neck.
But we may have just found our saving grace this season in a best-selling product on Amazon. With almost 10,000 overwhelmingly positive reviews, the Zyllion Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager promises to do everything your go-to masseuse can...and more, all for $55.
The powerful tool offers deep-kneading relief for sore and tight muscles with nodes that automatically change direction every minute, promising that every angle of your muscle is taken care of. Plus, the massage tool also offers a heating function to enhance blood circulation and maximize relaxation. And although it requires an outlet to function, it's an ideal travel companion because it weighs only four pounds.
It seems that Amazon users can't get enough of the pillow, with even some saying that they use it on their thighs, lower back and legs.
"I have severe arthritis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, joint pain, tight calves, a replaced hip and shoulder. This modest little piece of equipment is phenomenal for loosening tight muscles and relieving pain," wrote one reviewer, adding that his first Zyllion lasted him over four years. "These guys are top notch, reliable little beasts. They should be distributed to everyone over 30. I think if used by enough people, they could end wars, mend marriages, and save humanity from itself."
Another reviewer added that his first purchase quickly followed three more for family members: "Okay, this [may] be getting out of hand! I purchased a second one for my wife last week....Today, she just asked me to buy two more, one for her daughter and her sister. I just placed the order."
