Have you ever experienced a painful neck so sore that you can hardly work anymore? You may be one of Americans suffering from neck tension due to a disorder or a stressful lifestyle.
Trying massage or chiropractic work may have probably crossed your mind. But what if you want immediate relief yet too broke to spend a fortune on a professional therapist? The answer would be a neck massager, a product so innovative it has provided relief to millions of Americans.
Nekteck Shiatsu Deep Kneading Massage Pillow With Heat is one of the products that promise to melt away neck pain the safest and most affordable way. But just how effective it is? Let’s examine this product down to its minute features with this in-depth review.
Who is it for?
Whether you’re a student overwhelmed by studies or a 9-to-5 office worker who is neck-deep in computer work, experiencing neck spasms is almost inevitable. By using a Nekteck Shiatsu Deep Kneading Massage Pillow With Heat, you can relieve tension in your neck muscles almost immediately, resulting in increased productivity.
The Nekteck massager will also benefit those with arthritis, fibromyalgia, or post-workout muscle fatigue. This device is designed to massage specific trigger points on your neck, which means it can also relieve headaches commonly associated or linked to such tension spots.
However, not everyone is qualified to use Nekteck Shiatsu Deep Kneading Massage Pillow With Heat. To ensure your safety, ask your doctor about it or inquire Nekteck about certain contraindications for using their device. For instance, people with pacemaker or a history of blood clots are basically not allowed to use this neck massager without a doctor’s clearance.
*8 deep-kneading Shiatsu massage nodes target the acupuncture points of the neck to release tension/tight knots.
*Bi-directional movement of the massage nodes allow them to relieve muscle aches and mimic the action of the therapist’s hands. The direction of the rotating massage heads automatically change every minute. You can also switch to clockwise or counterclockwise by pressing the corresponding button.
*Three speed modes to choose from for a customized massage experience.
*Leather straps where you can insert your wrists or hands to adjust the pressure of the massage nodes.
*Switchable heat complements the actions of the massage nodes to relieve stress.
*Automatically shuts off after 15 minutes to protect the unit from overheating, thus increasing its life span.
*Comes with a 6.6 feet AC power adapter for home or office use. It also includes a free car adapter.

⊕With 18-month warranty and a 30-day money back guarantee. For more information, please reach out to Nekteck’s customer support.
⊕It looks and feels durable. Design is well-made and doesn’t appear to be another Chinese knock-off.
⊕Intensity of the massage can easily be adjusted by changing how hard or gentle you pull the leather straps.
⊕It has the nicest heat feature among the neck massagers we’ve reviewed. It gets warm enough after a while but never too hot that it becomes uncomfortable.
⊕Operates quietly; you still can watch TV while using it.
⊕Pretty versatile like other neck massagers. It works just as good on other parts of the body like thighs, buttocks, legs, lower back, and even feet.
⊕One of only few neck massagers with car adapter and the only one I’ve found so far that offers three speed modes.
⊕It gives robust massage. Contrary to what the manufacturer describes as “soft and springy,” the massage nodes provide deep, strong massage especially when pressed hard against the muscles.
⊗Although the variable speed setting is commendable, the modes basically don’t differ that much from one another in terms of the sensation they provide. Still, a great feature to have.
⊗Compared to other neck massagers that automatically shuts off after 20 minutes or more, the Nekteck stops massaging after 15 minutes–too short for some users who might want something that last longer.
The Bottom Line.
Nekteck Shiatsu Deep Kneading Massage Pillow With Heat is potentially the best neck massager on the market for various reasons. Aside from the excellent heat that can outperform those offered by other relatively more popular products, it’s intense massage complemented by multiple speed modes is something worth emulating.
Is it perfect? Of course not.
It doesn’t have a rechargeable battery that would have made it portable and perfect for travelers. However, this deficiency is offset by the free car adapter which allows you to enjoy neck massage during long commutes or road trips.
Nekteck Shiatsu Deep Kneading Massage Pillow With Heat may not be better than the massage you get from a therapist, but with an affordable price and almost complete features, this device is a great bargain–a product as incredible as a massage chair and a great gift that will keep on giving.
