This product was given to me as a review unit from 1byone.
Joint and back pain are very common for the everyday individual. Bad posture, excessive lifting or even sleeping poorly can lead to an aching back or neck. The 1byone Shiatsu Massage Pillow can help alleviate those aching pains. The massage pillow comes with a car adapter, making it possible to use during those long car rides to the in-laws beach house.
But how does it work?:
The pillow itself is quite simple in concept. It comes with a strap that you attach to a stable surface such as an office chair or to the headrest of a car seat. There is a small cable that sticks out of the massage unit that you attach the power adapter to. I love this idea because it helps make the life of the product last longer by preventing cable fraying. The material of the pillow is mesh-like and thin, but it secures the four heated massage balls inside quite nicely. The four heated-massage balls alternate between clockwise and counter clockwise motions every minute. I personally like to lean into the massage pillow so that it really digs into my back.
My opinion on it:
Having used it for quite a while, I can definitely say that I like using it. The massage balls heat up within four minutes, easing you into relaxing experience. I do wish there were a couple changes to the product though. For one, I wish there was a way to set a sleep timer on the device so that it could turn off on its own after a certain amount of time. I also would like a way to control how fast/hot the massage balls get. I think a slower, hotter setting would wonders for a lot of people. Modifications aside, I think the product works quite well as is, and would be a great gift for families and friends alike. You can order the 1byone Shiatsu Massage Pillow here on Amazon.com.
