Conclusion

I have tried many back massagers over the years but I personally love the Naipo neck and shoulder massager as it provides an intense massage with different intensity settings to chose from. However, there is no specific back massager that fits everyone’s need, some like traditional handheld massagers or natural acupressure mats while others like electric massagers. That is the reason different types of devices have been reviewed here. But before you commit to these back massagers, it is always safe to seek your doctor or physiotherapist advice.

  1. Wow, I did not know about the back muscles compressing. I have recently started a lawn service and my back does hurt sometimes and this might be a great idea for me. I went into a store and they had these massage recliners and man did they feel awesome. They had rollers that went up your back. Have you seen those? I wonder will it have the same effect as the devices you are mentioning.

  2. I am really interested in the neck/shoulder massager. I like all aspects of it, especially the fact that it generates heat and also that it shuts down after 20 minutes… I guess in case of falling asleep ! I appreciate the diversity of the massagers you present, it seems like they could be complementary to one another. Thanks for posting.

    1. Hello Ju,
      Yes the Naipo neck massager is my favourite but all of them are good depends what kind of massager you are looking for, to solve what purpose. That is the reason diversity of massagers have been presented, keeping different types of needs in mind. I am glad this helped you. Thank you for dropping by and leaving your precious comment.

      Best Regards

  3. Great suggestions here, Raman. I enjoy back massages often and by the looks of it, I can get a machine to do it all for me! If I had to choose I would hands down go for the Naipo Neck and Shoulder Massager. The lady looks so relaxed. I want that. Awesome review article, I’ll be back for more.

    1. Hello Brandon,
      Thank you, the suggestions here are to help people like you and me. I have been there and just never knew what was the right product, so I kept investing on a new one and also I came across products that made my back worse as well. I thought I should pass this research to others to make life easier.
      Best Regards
      Raman

  4. Hello Ronnie
    I know how hard it can be with all the bending when you are doing lawn service. My back mostly started hurting because of my bad posture and also hereditary problem. Because you are bending all day it is very important that you take care of your back. Consult a doctor or see a physiotherapist if it is getting worse. Yes I have reviewed and researched different types of massagers and the Naipo neck and shoulder massager that I have reviewed here has rollers in them and I know how awesome they feel as they are my favourite. Thank you for visiting my website and sharing your experience.

    Best Regards

  5. Hi Raman,
    I never knew that our back muscles compress by the end of the day. No wonder my back hurts more at night. I do have a TENS unit and it is a lifesaver. I do want to try the self-massage tool. It looks very good too! Thanks for all the great info!
    All the Best,
    Diane

  6. Hello Diane,

    You already have a good machine 🙂 I know how awesome it feels to have a back machine by the end of the day when you are so tired and back hurts. Yes if you like handheld type of machine then self massage tool would be a great choice. Enjoy your shopping for the right massager. Thank you for visiting my website and sharing your experience.

    Best Regards
    Raman

  7. Hello Melani,
    Thank you for the compliment. From your choice I can tell you love natural products and the same applies for back pain, you like to cure it naturally right? This is a great mat, it takes a day or two to get used to the spikes but it is very healthy for your overall health as not only are you relieving back pain but curing all parts of your body.

    Best Regards
    Raman

  8. I would love to try the acupressure mat and pillow set but I’m struggling to lay on the floor at the moment which my doctor has advised me to do to help out my lower back pain, could I just put this on my based or does it have to be a hard surface?

    1. Hello Mathew,

      You don’t have to lie on the hard surface, you can use something underneath like yoga mat to get the padding. I hope that helps :).

      Best Regards
      Raman
