I have tried a lot of massagers and this one is by far the
best Shiatsu massager I have used. It is well made and
comes with a supportive pillow. I have used it maily for my
neck and shoulders. But it can be used for back, leg, and
calf, too. It just feels like a therapist working on my
neck and shoulders and I can do it at the comfort of my
home. I had cheaper shiatsu massagers before but the
position of their massage node are fixed. One very nice
feature about the ShoulderFlex is that it allows me to
adjust the width and depth of its fingers. In fact, I can
increase the width to cover the entire portion of my
shoulders. Great product for the money!
All I can say is WOW!
So many hand-held massagers make you work almost as hard, manipulating a vibrating wand, than having no tool for the job at all. Not the case with the Thumper. Like they say, just put it into place where you need to relax the muscles and let it do all the work.
Maybe that wouldnt be such a great recommendation if it were just me saying that. My back pain comes from working at a desk, standing over a sink and stove, and lugging groceries, garden equipment and grandchildren.
I also like being able to choose from 3 different power settings and the size lets me reach the center of my back without hurting my shoulder and lets my son work on his sore thigh muscles without needing a third arm.
The only gripe I have with it was the cost.
It's worth it, but I wanted bigger discount.
I found this cheaper here than other places because of the free shipping.
