TruMedic is a trusted company that produces many pain relief products to help you get through your day. Everyone has off days where they don’t feel their best, and for these days you may need a powerful solution to help ease your tired or overworked muscles, achy joints, and to help you relax. One such solution is the truMedic InstaShiatsu Plus Neck and Shoulder Massager. It is designed to offer an authentic Shiatsu massage experience to many different parts of your body, where you need it most. It can also alleviate pain of many types, all in the privacy of your own home.

This product is lightweight, weighing in at around five pounds. It is teal in color and consists of a sling-like apparatus that offers two loops for you to slide your hands into, so that you can get the most control of where the product massages you. You are actually guiding it with your arms and hands, so you know it is getting right into the spots where you need it to work out those kinks. It also has an easy to use control panel that is located on the side of the machine. The panel has 3 buttons, which includes an on button, a heat button, and a reverse button. The heat button adds a little something extra to your massage by making the device heat up, in an attempt to get deeper into the muscles for more relaxation. The reverse button reverses the way that the massager moves, which is a feature that you don’t often see. What really sets this product in a class by itself is that it is cordless and has a powerful rechargeable battery made of lithium-ion. You can simply charge it up and get to work on those muscles. It is especially helpful on the neck and shoulders because of its unique design, but can be used throughout the body very easily by either lying down or sitting on a chair. The massager also comes with a high quality carrying case that matches the product. This is great for storing it, or if you need to take it somewhere else, like on a trip or to the gym.


Users of this product are a very satisfied bunch. They love the way that it is powerful, at times almost too powerful, and relaxes their pain and muscles. Some users explained that it worked wonders on their lower backs and necks, unlike any other product they have tried in the past. Additional comments include that the battery leaves it charged for at least a few hours of use and that it can be used while plugged in, if you have an emergency. They also appreciate the fact that the control panel of the machine has an LED indicator light telling you when it is fully charged, so there is no guesswork when figuring out when it is okay to use again. There are not a lot of complaints for this item, except for the facts that that some people think it isn’t powerful enough, and that they couldn’t feel the heating element.

All in all, this product is a great buy. It is powerful and offers features that are not often seen, such as the way you can control it with your arms and the fact that it is cordless, and still powerful enough to get the job done. The product is very highly rated because it was extremely hard for customers to find any fault with it. If you suffer from aching muscles and joints and want to feel better, this may be one to research more.
