A shiatsu neck massager (similar to what a traditional Shiatsu therapist does) applies the kneading and gentle pressure massage around the shoulder and neck region.
How Does Neck Massagers Apply Pressure
It uses mechanical thumb to apply pressure to relieve stress. As the word ‘Shiatsu’ implies – it is a finger pressure massage which uses the Japanese acupressure technique.
What makes this neck massager practical is – it can be used whenever you wish to relax and detress yourself from a hard day at home or work … during the day or night.
And the best part is, a neck massager can provide immediate relief from the soreness or tension (more at www.bestmassagechairreviews.net) in the neck and shoulders. As well, unlike the human touch, it cannot get tired or bored.
Hence you can enjoy a massage as long as you like, and without paying a hefty fee for as massage therapist.
A typical shiatsu neck massager is like a ‘U shaped cushion’ or ‘pillow style cushion’ which fits snugly around your neck which uses the massage (and in some products in tandem with heat) to treat the areas.
The massager itself uses a range of motions, from kneading action to rolling in order to apply pressure around your neck and shoulders.
Depending on the type of model you purchase, some shaitsu neck massagers offers rubber grips for easy positioning on other limbs like the leg or arm.
As well, if you are the type of person who doesn’t enjoy a soft massage, you will be able to adjust the settings or level of pressure, from soft to hard – and vice versa.
But for most, it is the soothing pressure around the neck and shoulders – it gets to the underlying muscles and tension which provides relief from the aches and pains.
Benefits of a Shiatsu Neck Massager
Aside from the obvious relaxation and detressing pleasures, a shiatsu neck massager can offer therapeutic values like treating a stiff neck or tight shoulders, anxiety fears and headaches.
Sidenote – The concept of Shiatsu is to get your Chi (internal body energy) running smoothly, which runs along channels called the meridian.
And if your chi is blocked or misdirected, physical problems or stiffness can result. Therefore, by focusing on certain points of pressure, a Shiatsu Neck Massager can bring instant relief.
Whether you suffer from tension or soreness, a shiatsu neck massager is a great alternative to a traditional shaitsu master, or phyio therpist.
It can offer instat relief and best of all, relaxation from your busy lifestyle!
