Paying top dollar for a full body massage can become pricey but with an at home personal massager, you receive the same amount of relaxation for only a fraction of the price. I first invested in a body massager when I purchased the Zyllion ZMA-14-BK Shiatsu massager and I haven’t regretted it for a moment since. There are many times I’ve purchased items in a spur of the moment and regretted them shortly after but this is completely different.
Being a single mom with nobody to help me relieve my stress at the end of the day, I was desperate for a quick and easy solution for stress management. It began with paying $60 every week for a one hour full body massage but that became costly and it was difficult to find a babysitter for my daughter at an affordable price. I then turned to the internet to find alternative options which is where I found this Shiatsu Massage Cushion.
Living up to Shiatsu’s high standards, this massager provides an aggressive massage that was a bit rough for the first use. After the first couple times, I got used to the rough, deep tissue massage and I began feeling the benefits of it in the form of highly reduced stress levels. Before I got this massager, I would often feel excessive pain in my lower back and neck muscles but those inconveniences are little to none now.
Being only 5’3”, I found that it is easier to do the neck and back massages separately in order to reach my neck easier although the height is adjustable. Another trick I’ve found is placing the massager in a reclining chair and laying at a slight angle during the massage. This provides a harder, deeper tissue massage that in the end, relieves even more stress and leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to continue my day.
Another ailment I often suffer from are severe headaches and migraines. For years, I’ve relied on pills and home remedies to help lessen the pain but I quickly realized that this massager also helps with the migraines! The upper shoulder and neck massagers in combination with the heat have greatly decreased the amount of headaches I get on a daily basis. I’ve also noticed the severity of my headaches is reduced by at least half. This allows me to enjoy my time with my daughter more now that I don’t feel limited by severe migraines and stress related muscle pains.
Overall, there are no significant complaints about this Zyllion ZMA-14-BK Shiatsu deep tissue massager. The Spot Shiatsu function is something I’ve yet to figure out due to confusing and vague directions that were included but that is pretty insignificant compared to the advantages this has provided to me. There are also no settings which allow you to change the intensity of the massage but this can simply be changed by sitting back further or relaxing forward a bit. The heated balls which rotate and move up and down make this experience priceless and the vibrations just put the cherry on the cake.
