Buyer’s Guide

[Product relevance last revised: 3 May 2018]

Why Should You Trust Me?

I am a 26-year-old student that has a bachelors degree in Kinesiology, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and currently studying the Ph.D. Physical Therapy program.

My main focuses have been on back-related issues and I have both worked with the rehabilitation of sciatica as well as with other types of injuries.

I have been recommending different types of products for people that have asked for my opinion on this matter long before I started to write my own reviews. As a strength and conditioning specialist, I have had the fortune of being in an environment where I have had great access to a lot of rehabilitation product.

While it would be impossible for me to try every product, I’m familiar with almost all of the companies that produce them as well as the knowledge in what is considered as a good quality in a product for rehabilitation and for back pain.

What’s in it for me? Every time someone clicks through to Amazon.com and purchase a product, I get a small commission. I do this to make ends meet so that I can continue writing on my website. I also firmly believe that I can be an asset to peoples decision-making.

My opinion has not been skewed through payment from any of the creators of these products. I have never received any free products for reviewing or rating.

I recommend you buying it from Amazon.com, where I bought mine. Here is the link:
Naipo Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager

In this short clip, I’m demonstrating the use of the Naipo Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager

In the video, I’m using it at the top speed, but it has 3 different kinds of speed adjustments as well.

I experimented with it a bit and it worked just as good as a foot massager and even for the hands.

Identify Your Priority! What Kind of Problem do you want a The Neck Massager to Solve?

Do You Want to use it for travel?

If you are planning a trip, or are someone that is often on foot, a neck massager can be a viable option for you if you either want to deal with or prevent neck pain.

However, a neck massager can come in different forms, each one is good for a specific purpose. Not all neck massagers are optimal for travel. You would want to look after one that is:

  • Compact and portable (Massage Pillow)
  • Cordless, preferably with batteries
  • A long duration time

Scroll down to research different functions.

Do you Need it for Injury Rehabilitation?

I would caution you to use a neck massager for Injury rehabilitation if it is not supervised or advised by a medically trained person.

If you want to try it, either way, look for a massage chair that is:

  • Intensity adjustable
  • Speed adjustable
  • Includes heat ability
  • Has warranty (In case it doesn’t work out for you)

My Suggestion:
VIKTOR JURGEN Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager

Do You Need it For General Pain Management?

This is the usual case someone wants a neck massager. Everyone loves to get a good neck massage, but some don’t like to be touched by a stranger or doesn’t have anyone in their surrounding that is good at giving one.

I have not had ANYONE over at my apartment that doesn’t want to try my neck massager (the FITFIRST Neck and Shoulder Massager Shiatsu)

Buying a neck massager for the pleasure of having one is great, and it will keep both your mind and your body in shape. It can give you:

  • A more relaxed and deep sleep
  • Reduce headache
  • Increase blood flow to the muscles
  • Help with concentration (I almost always use one when I read, but a smaller one Zaichen Travel Pillow)
  • Not having to pay for a real masseus

Do You Need it to Use in the Car?

There is a great deal of things to really consider when buying a neck massager for car purpose. Almost every Pillow massager has a strap that can be used to attach the neck massager to the head of the driver’s seat and are constructed for this kind of use. Consider this:

  • Is it mainly the driver that wants to use it, or is it for passenger purpose?
  • Do you actually want a back massager cushion that can give you more benefits and are really compatible with car-driving?
  • Do you need a cordless? Most neck massagers comes with a DC-adapter
  • Does it have an automatic turn-off function?
  • Does it have a long cord?

My Suggestion:
NURSAL Shiatsu Neck Pillow Massager

Do You Actually Need a Back Massager Cushion Instead?

This is a great question! Most back massager cushion actually has a massage pillow attached at the top. If you are not specifically looking for a neck massager for travel or one with armstraps, you should consider looking for a back massager cushion, since some of them can be at a really affordable price.

Research the Neck Massagers Different Functions

Number of Kneading Nodes

The usual number of kneading nodes are either 4 or 8. There are exceptions that have 12 and some that only has 2.

You shouldn’t be fooled by the sheer number of kneading nodes. Some really good back massagers like the HoMedics NMS‐620H Shiatsu Deluxe Neck and Shoulder Massager only comes with 4, but is designed so that there are 2 bigger and 2 smaller nodes that are addressing the neck-muscles in a more in-depth way.

I would suggest to opt for the pillow massagers that has 8 nodes if you can find one, since it can be very harsh on your neck if you can’t change the speed on it, and it’s harder to place a neck pillow at a comfortable angle than it is with a neck massager with armstraps.

The NURSAL Neck Massager offers 4 nodes that are smaller and 8 nodes that are bigger, which contributes A LOT to the feel of the massage. If I’m going to buy a new one, it’s this one.

Heat Function

It is very rare that a neck massager comes without a heat function. It’s, however, rare that a massage chair comes with adjustable heat settings.

Cordless neck massagers tend to have a weaker heat function since that would drain to much of the battery.

Some neck massagers have too high heat and can even burn the skin if you’re not careful. I would suggest reading the reviews about this, but I have only come over one in the research of this article, and it is the FIVE S Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager.

Cordless and Battery

In my opinion as a self-proclaimed Neck Massager-expert, the cordless function is overrated IF you don’t have a clear purpose for it from the start. They can be very beneficial for traveling, since then you won’t have to worry about any outlets. To find specific neck massagers for this, I advice you to read the full review of neck massagers with this sole purpose.

It can be awesome if you really want that mobility to move around, but if you know that you’re going to use it in front of the TV or whatnot, it can just be an unnecessary expense.

No cordless neck massagers can’t be used while charging so you might even end up without any massage when you most desire it.

However, there are neck massagers with a built-in battery and the ones that come with more than one re-rechargeable battery. For example, the NURSAL Cordless Neck & Shoulder Massager comes with 3 batteries with a charging time of 3-4 hours, so it can pretty much be used infinitely.

There are also some low-quality neck massagers that can be used with AA-batteries, but the power in those is not much to fight for Rome over(what?).

Plug-in and Adapter

This is the most solid option. However, some does not support dual voltage (110v and 220v) so be sure to check this out beforehand! Especially if you live outside of the US!

Try to find a neck massager with a long cord, it isn’t the biggest drawback if it doesn’t have a super long cord since most of them are about 3 or 4 feet.

Different settings

It’s very common for a neck massager to be able to turn both clockwise and anti-clockwise.

The bigger question is if this is something that can be controlled or if it just switches each minute or so. I can find it pretty annoying when it decides to switch direction just when I found a good spot.

Some neck massagers with armstraps come with a vibration-option. I personally don’t like this but some people might do.

Another important setting to look for is a speed setting. Most of them only have one but some come with either 2 or 3 speed settings.

There is usually no adjustment of strength since this can be controlled with manually applied pressure, but some high-end neck massagers come with strength adjustment.

The shiatsu option is just a “fancy” term that has been indoctrinated in every label nowadays.

What Shiatsu actually is, is a form of therapy of Japanese origin based on the same principles as acupuncture, in which pressure is applied to certain points on the body using the hands. So, you can take this as a modified truth.

Research your Options

Armstraps

This is the newest innovation and a really good one! Not much explaining needed, but it simply keeps the massage pillow in place on your neck.

The armstraps can also be used to apply pressure, both on the neck and on various other body parts.

Massage Pillow

This is the more portable option. Usually works just as good as the ones with armstraps but is harder to use to “pinpoint” the pressure.

Other Neck Massagers

There are also other types of neck massagers, like VOYOR Handheld Neck Back Massager, that is a handheld massager that can be really simple and easy to use.

The pressure might not be as hard but they are very versatile and easy to just store away and pick up every time you need a massage. They are always cordless.

EXEFIT Rechargeable Neck Massager might just be the most innovative one since it grants you the ability to charge it through an uUSBport. I haven’t tried this one, and I can’t imagine it being very strong. But it’s super portable and might just be good enough!

Scale your Decision Down to 2 or 3 Products

Ok! Now, depending on what you like, it’s time to scale your descision down to 3 options.

I would recommend between those 3 but feel free to browse the list and find some that you’d like.

Massage Pillows

Gagaking Massage Travel Pillow

This is a really cool travel pillow with both Bluetooth and a shadow cap! Great for travel.

NURSAL Shiatsu Neck Pillow Massager

Again, this is just such a high-quality massage pillow!

Zaichen Travel Pillow

This is the one I use, and it have been with me for maybe 3 years now without any trouble.

Armstrap Massagers

FITFIRST Neck and Shoulder Massager Shiatsu

Since I myself doesn’t care too much about cordless, this is my favourite. It is also the one that i use myself.

FIVE S Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager

The angle of these kneading noodles just makes this one so good!

SUNLITLIFE Cordless Shiatsu Neck &  Shoulder Massager

I love quality-tested products, and this is overall a really good armstrap neck massager that comes with handy Velcrostraps that can be used very beneficially.

Questions and Answers

How Much Does a Neck Massager Cost?

They usually cost from $20 up to as much as $130. But you can get a good neck pillow for around 25 and one with armstraps for $40-50.

The cordless ones are usually a bit more expensive.

How much does a neck massager weight?

The neck massagers with armstraps usually weight between 3.5-5 lb (1.5-2.2kg) and the neck pillows usually weight around 2-4 lb (0.9-1.8 kg).

Is it Possible to Adjust the Width on a Neck Massager? 

No this is a function that I have never come across. However, at some back massager cushions, it’s possible to adjust the height of the neck pillow in relation to the back massager.

Is the Heat Function Adjustable?

It’s very rare to find a neck massager with an adjustable heat function. But there is some!

How Long Can You use a Neck Massager for?

Most neck massagers have an anti-overheating function which turns off the massager after 15-30 minutes.

While they can just be turned on again, using the neck massager extensively might not be such a good idea. It is a matter of opinion, I guess.

What Does Shiatsu Mean?

The shiatsu option is just a “fancy” term that has been indoctrinated in every label nowadays.

What Shiatsu actually is, is a form of therapy of Japanese origin based on the same principles as acupuncture, in which pressure is applied to certain points on the body using the hands. So, you can take this as a modified truth. 

It is the setting in a neck massager where the kneading nodes move in a circular motion to “mimic” the touch of human hands. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just not representative of the word.

How Loud is a Neck Massager?

It all depends, but usually not very loud. Some are of course quiet than others and it’s hard to say before buying one.

I have the FITFIRST Neck and Shoulder Massager Shiatsu and it’s notable but not distracting.

The small buzz can actually be quite soothing.

Can a Neck Massager be Used on the Whole Body?

With the new innovative design with the armstraps, it’s possible to use it however you’d like! The boundaries are to be set with your own judgment.

A lot of the top-tier neck massagers comes with cleaning cloths so that you can clean it if you decide to use it as a foot massager (I suggest it, it’s awesome!)

With only 4 nodes the feel of fingers isn’t the greatest. 4 is still more than one so you still get that many fingered feel a massage therapist offers. Unlike some of the other traveling accessible products out there, it does come with a strap to hold it in place. There will be no extra exertion trying to move this massager around.

It can also be moved to different areas of the body other than the neck.

Even with 4 nodes and a really strong intensity, this is still a really nice massager. Some exciting options like that warranty and that strap might still make the Naipo Shiatsu Pillow Massager right for you.

The Hangsun 3D Neck and Back Shoulder Massager is close to the best that’s out there. The only reason it is not the best is because it is a little heavier. Coming in under five pounds does not make it too much of a burden. There are great benefits to this Shiatsu Neck, Back, and Shoulder massager

It can be moved to different areas of the body so when more than your neck hurts you can still find relief in those other areas

The adjustability also makes the Hangsun 3D Shiatsu a great product. There’s heat too which helps relax. A warranty is provided which can make this easily replaceable if something goes wrong.  Other than weight, there are so many other options that the Hangsun is well worth it.

The HoMedics NMS-375 Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager is a bit different to other neck massagers in the category of handheld neck massagers. The handles are shorter and it has a more compact and “pillow”-like design. It also covers a bigger area and extends more to the shoulders than most of the normal neck massagers.

It is a bit on the heavier side and can be hard to keep in place if you are not using your both hands.

It has a vibration-function that I don’t think anyone would like to use. But it comes at a great price and if you want a neck massager that is more intense and deep-kneading, this one is for you.

This Neck Massager comes with 8 nodes that are said to feel like a professional masseuse’s hands. How that is calculated beats me. Anyways, it is equipped with half of the nodes being big and the other half being small. It can change the direction of the massage noodles that also contributes to the “natural” hands feel.

I don’ tknow exactly how many people that are trying to fool themselves into thinking that it’s a real person massaging them, but kudos to NURSAL for trying so hard! The quality is overall very high, and it is a well-designed neck massager.

It also has an automated heat-protection function that will automatically turn off the neck massager if over-heated!

It also comes with a detachable fiber cloth that can be used to adjust the strength of the massage by placing it over the nodes. This cloth can also be used as a hand warmer, PERFECT!

I always laugh a bit when I read that the massager comes with 3-dimension kneading nodes. How disappointed wouldn’t one be if the nodes weren’t 3-dimensional and only like printed on a piece of paper? Haha..

This neck massager lacks some of the exclusive features, but is sturdy and have a good U-Shape design that actually works very well for an effective neck massage. I have noticed that some of the more straight-designed ones sometimes have a hard time reaching the upper-upper neck.

The Nekteck Shiatsu Deep Kneading Massage Pillow comes with 8 kneading nodes and three different kinds of speed modes.

It will automatically shut down after 10 minutes to not overheat.

But, as the other neck massagers that come with handheld straps, it can be a bit hard to adjust the placement to find the best massage experience. In other words, you need to get a bit creative in order to get it the way you want. Some have a more ergonomic design and this one might need a bit more effort to get a good massage out of since the nodes are “pointing” down a bit more than other neck massagers.

The HoMedics NMS‐620H Shiatsu Deluxe Neck and Shoulder massager sure live sup to the term ”Deluxe”.

The 4 kneading nodes are placed facing in so that it massager “around” the spine and on the neck. A lot of massagers, especially the massage pillows, tend to hit the spine a lot but HoMedics found a way around this problem.

The fact that it only comes with 4 kneading nodes, 2 small and 2 big, is not actually a huge backdraw. It’s hard to explain the feeling of this neck massager but it sure is a good one, if not a bit pricey.

Just Wow! This one is as innovative as it is comfortable. I have used it myself for a long time. It has a built-in bluetooth function as well as an amazing heat function that doesn’t get too warm and uncomfortable. It is cordless with a 2 hour life span.

And the best part is the shading cap! It’s just so comfortable. It is also really easy to take with you when traveling, since you can fold the cap together with the neck massager. You can also opt-in to not use the cap and place it neatly inside of the pillow.

It also comes with a lifetime guarantee, which is really good since it costs a bit of money.

The EXEFIT rechargeable Neck Massager is another top-tier innovative and one-of-a-kind neck massager. It is rechargeable through USB and has a 2 hour active massage time. It has only two buttons, one on/off button and one that controls heating and rotation direction.

It has a light heating function, that is enough to not be too uncomfortable. Each side has its own electric motor that makes the two nodes rotate.

It is not as comfortable as some of the other handheld neck massagers and you don’t have your hands free, but it is really easy adjustable with manually dragging to apply pressure on each side.

Compared to other rechargeable neck massagers, this one still keeps the power of both the kneading and the head even if it is cordless. BruntMor is also a company that has tried to focus on branding themselves with great customer service so you can contact them with any inquiry.

The NURSAL Cordless Shoulder Massager is also a top-tier cordless neck massager, charged with lithium-ion batteries. It takes around 3-4 hours to charge a battery that will last approximately 2 hours. You get 3 batteries when you buy it, so this means that it can, in theory, be on all the time haha.

It can change speed and direction, depending on what you like. The straps are also longer than most other models like it and it’s a lot more lightweight than most. It turns off after 15 minutes to ensure that the massager doesn’t get overheated.

Cross my heart, this is the best one for the money you can get if you want a cordless one! But the matter of fact is that the cordless function is only useful if you actually need it for a specific purpose since you will often find yourself close to a power source anyway.

The VOYOR Handheld Neck and Back Massager can generate up to 3800 pulses per minute. That is 228 000 pulses an hour and over 5 million a day! Imagine how much tension that would relive, you wouldn’t even have any neck left after a week with this one.

All kidding aside, I don’t know much about this product, but this type of model has become increasingly popular as of late. I watched some videos of it and it’s really quiet and can change between different massage nodes.

It also looks pretty cool and can surely be a great gift! Not that costly either.

The SunlitLife Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager is a cordless massager with 12 kneading nodes that has a patented massaging capability. Not sure what exactly is patented by it sounds cool.

It also has another great feature, making it one of the most innovative models, which is extended straps with Velcro, so that you can pretty much place it anywhere on the body and without needing to hold it in place.

SunLitLife also offers assured quality tested products and a 1-year warranty. Lucky person that gets to test neck massagers all day long. It’s rechargeable through lithium-ion batteries that lasts approximately 2 hours.

The reason the Brookstone Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager comes at a reasonable higher price is that of its ability to massage a vastly higher area of the neck and shoulders.

The massaging nodes travel all the way down on to the shoulders and a bit upon the upper back. This is actually amazing for comfort, while it also makes it weight a bit more. It has 3 levels of intensity that you can combine with both vibration and heat.

I would recommend this one only if you want a bigger neck massager that covers more of your neck/shoulders and are not planning on traveling to much with it.

The Homedics NMSQ-210 Neck Massager is as portable as it gets. It can be used with normal AA-batteries so that you don’t have to go through the “hassle” of charging the batteries. It can also be used with the adaptor that comes with the neck massager.

It is the definition of simplicity. It’s pretty much a neck pillow with a small and soft massage function that can bring some soothing heat. You can adjust the speed between low and high.

Recommended for airplane-rides and similar traveling.

The VOVOSHINE Shiatsu Neck Shoulder Massager comes with 8 kneading nodes and 2 handles for adjustment. This can both be good and a dealbreaker.

The Neck Massagers that I have used that includes arm-straps have been beneficial because you can strap it to your wrists so that you can read whenever you are using the massager. This is not possible with this one.

It has all the other functions like heat and two-way rotation. But it also comes with a low/high intensity adjustment, which can be a really good asset if you have a back that is really hurting and you want a softer touch.
