Stress and anxiety are some of the worst health problems we have to face, but yet so common. The problem is we don’t take the time to sit down, relax and slow our minds down. We work all day, come home, make dinner, make sure everyone else is happy and very often forget that we need to take care of ourselves. Massage therapy is my number one therapy when it comes to helping me unwind. Just to sit back, feel my muscles being massaged and warmed up and taking my mind off everything else for a while.
Shiatsu massage therapy is an effective way to relieve tired, aching and tense muscles and help your worries drift away. It is a Japanese massage technique where the focus is on the pressure points in your body. I have had a shiatsu massage by a therapist and I think it’s one of the most powerful ways of bringing harmony back into your body and mind.
The problem with having a massage by a therapist is that it’s very expensive if you want to keep up with it regularly. This is where a shiatsu massage pillow will come in very handy. As long as you purchase the right type of massage pillow with enough power to get into those tense muscles, such as the Infrared Heating Shiatsu Massage Cushion, you’ll be doing your body a huge favour, as tense muscles can lead to all types of health problems. Shiatsu massage applies deep pressure to your pressure points, so the massage pillow you buy really needs to be able to press in deeply to your muscles to relieve tension and balance the meridians in your body.
My main issues are lower back pain and tight neck and shoulders, so this is where I wanted to put the shiatsu pillow to the test. The first night I tried out my pillow I sat on the couch, plugged it in, placed the pillow behind my lower back and felt like I was in heaven. The heads in the pillow had just the right pressure to get into my lower back tension and when the pillow heated up I felt like purring like a cat. Heat in massage therapy is very effective and soothing.
Next I tried it on my shoulders and neck, wow, this pillow really gets into the sore spots at the base of my skull, usually only a therapist can find these, I can never manage to find them myself. It kneaded through the knots in my neck. I always have one shoulder blade which becomes quite sore, so I placed the pillow on that area, sat back and let the tension melt away.
I also tried the pillow on my calves, as I had very sore muscles after attempting a long walk which was beyond my fitness level. I sat on the bed, placed the pillow under my hamstrings and the pillow gently massaged and eased my sore muscles.
The pillow stimulates the acupuncture points, which can help strengthen the immune system and eliminate toxins. The infrared heat stimulates blood flow and is just so relaxing. Very good for strained and tired muscles. It’s ergonomic design is made with high quality materials and an overheat safety protection. It has four rollers to get into all those tights spots and pressure points.
I wish I had purchased one of these pillows years ago, I always looked at them in the stores and wondered how effective they would really be, but now I’ve tried it I’m addicted.
What I like about this particular pillow is it’s handy to carry around with you, especially if travelling. This would be so good for long road trips, there is a strap on the back of the pillow, so you can place it over the back of the car seat and it will be held in place.
Many people also don’t really like visiting a massage therapist , they can find it a bit daunting, so having a massage pillow to use in the privacy of your own home would make such a difference.
You can use it on your neck, abdomen, calf, lower back, upper back, thigh. It comes with a power adapter and a car adaptor plug, so can be used at home, car or in the office. Just sit back on the couch, bed or place it on the back of the chair.
My favourite time when using this massager is when I come home from work, it relaxes me almost instantly and works on tight muscles from sitting at a desk looking at a computer for too long. Also helps with my tension headaches and to relieve anxiety.
