If you’re on the hunt for an electric massager (or just hoping to up your self-care game), then look no further. We just found what might be the massage pillow to top all other massage pillows.
What gives us the confidence to say that, you may ask? Well, it has almost 9,000 near-perfect reviews on Amazon and a high average rating of 4.5 stars. The people have spoken.
The Zyllion Shiatsu back and neck massager acts as a pillow and personal masseuse all in one. Just sit back against it and let the four heated, rotating massage nodes knead away those stubborn knots and muscle tension, all from the comfort of your own home. Use it in between spa sessions. Use it while you binge watch Netflix. Use it on long car rides. (It comes with adjustable straps that you can attach to your car seat and a power adapter made specifically for the act of enjoying a nice Zyllion Shiatsu massage while road tripping across America. Incredible!) Plus, the slim design makes it travel-friendly, so you won’t ever have to go without it.
In fact, several shoppers have bought multiple Zyllion massager pillows to keep both at home and in the office — it is that loved. Take it from Amazon user White Noise Machine, who wrote in their five-star review, “This wonderful little gadget came to my aid multiple times a day and never complained. I sat on it, dropped it, [lied] across it, stood on it — virtually lived on that thing. It's been my go-to pal when I was sore from surgery, from work, from a long day in the yard. Got one for my mom and brother [because] I loved it so much.”
To buy: amazon.com, $50
Chris M. loves the massage pillow for travel, writing, “I really liked that it runs on both 12V in the car and then a long extension cord for hotels. It's not so big that it can't fit into a small carry-on suitcase when airline travel is required. I can't wait to try this thing out on a plane — assuming power is available.”
And while the Zyllion massage pillow is marketed as an electric massager mainly for back and neck muscles, Amazon user Jose C. has found that it also works wonders on different parts of the body, sharing, “I bought one of these massagers for my mom as a Mother’s Day gift, because my mother works standing up the whole day [and] she suffers from leg pain when she gets home. This massager has completely changed her life. Once she gets home she plugs it in and puts the massager underneath her legs, and she says it soothes her leg pain until she feels no pain.”
