Types of Massagers For Your Different Needs

There are several types of massagers that can help you relax, energize or reduce stress. The following are the best in my opinion and can make you feel like you just had to treat yourself to a luxurious spa day.

Massage Pillows

Massage Pillow with HeatMassage pillows with heat are perfect to have if you do not have the time to go to a spa. These pillows are very stylish and always come in handy.

To some they may appear too big but I never thought it to be bulky because it sits comfortably in all areas I use it to (even on my glutes).

After you press the button, it will start to work its magic and have its rotating heads add pressure to your muscles to release tension.

It also gives off heat to soothe aching areas especially the back area! That combination of pressure from the rotating heads and heat makes it a perfect massager to get rid of back pain. My back felt really nice and relaxed after I used it.

Leg, Foot, Calf, and Ankle Massagers

Foot MassagerA lot us women complain of sore feet after a long day at work. The perfect way to get rid of that is to get a leg massager.

It gives your feet that sort of feel that you are getting a deep kneading Shiatsu massage. The secret is that these massagers have rollers that give a rolling kneading massage to your feet.

After turning it on, you might want to put some pillows behind it so your feet will perfectly sit on top of the massager while you’re comfortably lounging on a chair.

Leg and Ankle MassagerThe foot and calf massager, as the name implies simultaneously gives a vibrating and rolling/kneading massage to these areas of your feet. The massager has raised areas that target the pressure points of your feet.

The only issue I have with this type of massager is that it might not be too comfortable to use for people with big calves because they might have a hard time trying to fit their legs on the massager. It is also fairly heavy. But overall, it works best with achy legs!


Foot Spa Massagers

For those of us on our feet all day for work, it’s important to unwind and reenergize before getting back to it again the next day. Of the many ways to do this, getting a foot massage is one many people would like to do often, but can’t. Spa treatments are expensive, and they take time. Going to and fro between home and a spa is not a luxury many can afford.

The solution is to bring the spa to you! Foot spa massagers can be a delightful experience to come home to after a long day and a wonderful addition to any home. Being able to have the contentment that spa visits leave you with all in the comfort of your home can change everything. Relieving soreness is also important for you to be able to give your all at work the next day.

Foot bath massagers can give you massages involving acupressure and shiatsu just like one at the spa would feel. While your feet are soaking, they will also experience heat and hydrotherapy techniques to relieve soreness. Water temperature can be as high or low as you want and your massage can be customized as well.

Massage Cushions

Massage Cushion with HeatMassage cushions with heat are perfect in targeting broader areas of your back up to your neck.

After using a massage cushion, I felt like I just got out from a full back massage at a spa.

It is pretty flexible to use because you can either put it on a chair and just sit straight on it so your neck reaches the neck massager or you can put this on a reclined chair for a more aggressive massage. Or you also have the option of doing the neck and back massage at the same time or separately. Either way works fine, in my opinion.


Neck Massagers

Vibrating Neck MassagerIf you are likely to suffer from stiff neck after waking up or being on a computer for so long, you will find a neck massager to be really useful.

Usually, neck massagers have rotating balls covered with cloth so they don’t cause your skin to feel too hot (even when the heat is on) after using them. The design allows you to put the device around your neck.

It is pretty simple to use. You can pull the edges of the massager closer to your neck if you want a deep kneading massage or just simply let it rest around your neck if you want a lighter massage. If you are still using the old hand massagers, you might want to try switching to this one.
