How I Eased My Neck and Shoulder Pain with a Naipo Massager.

This is the time we all begin wondering about what to buy our loved ones for Christmas, or indeed what we would like ourselves. Today, Christmas came early for me as I've been trying out a Naipo 3D Rotating Massager and I love it! Here is my review of the product and please read on to see a special discount code for my readers.

What's In the Box?

The massager arrives in a neat little box which you can keep for storage.
Included in the box is:

1 x Shiatus shoulder massager
1 x Dust cloth
1 x User manual
1 x Car charger
1 x Wall Charger
1 x Instruction Booklet

It's simple to set up, just attach the charger and plug it in. I did find the attachments do come out easily so you have to make sure that you don't overstretch them. Once set up and the massage begins this no longer becomes a problem.

The massager has shoulder straps with hand holders. They keep you in a perfect position for the massage and are comfortable. Of course, you don't have to put your hands in, you can just relax them by your side if you wish. But they are also useful for adjusting the pressure of the massage, just move your hands down for harder pressure or up for lighter.

The massager has eight Shiatsu deep kneading modules which work together and are designed to feel like a masseurs hands.

The function buttons are on the strap and easy reachable while the massage is in process. There are three options;
On/Off button
Heat button
Change rotation button.

The massager also comes with a car charger so you can use it in the car when you need to relax. You are not intended to use this massager while driving.

Also in the box is a dust cloth which can be attached to the massager by velcro to cover the nodules and protect your skin. It also protects the product from becoming dirty as it can be removed and washed.

You can find more details about this massager and other product from the Naipo Care Website.

What Does it Do?

The massager gives a deep and relaxing massage. It is classified as a mild intensity massager and you cannot change the pressure but you can use the hand grips to pull it closer for more intensity, or move it away for less intensity. It also provides a gentle heat which does not go above 40% and has a safety cut off. 

It rotates clockwise, and anti clockwise and changes direction after one minute to prevent muscle soreness. It is designed to feel like a hand massage.

You can also use the massager elsewhere on the body. The booklet shows  you how to position the massager to use on your back, thighs, waist, abdominal and feet.

My Verdict

I have only ever had two professional massages in my life and both masseurs said that my neck and shoulders where really knotted. I'm not sure that is a medical term but I do know that they feel tight and often painful or achy.

My first impressions of the massager were that it felt hard and bulky and I was convinced I wouldn't like it. However, once set up and placed behind my neck I was pleasantly surprised.

It felt quite hard at first but I soon got used to it. I was wearing a jumper so that most of the massager was placed against my clothes rather than my skin. It genuinely felt like hands massaging me and I love the way it moved and changed direction. It got right into the places that are stiff and achy and the neck massage made me feel totally relaxed.

I did keep my hands in the holders and it felt comfortable. I was also able to reach the controls easily. I loved how I could control the intensity by moving my hands, I started off having them quite loose but I was soon confident enough to let my arms relax and move the massager in closer for a higher intensity.

The heat was really nice and comforting, but it's good to know that you can turn it off at any time if you wanted to.

I could hear a slight humming while using the massager, I'm noise sensitive so I thought it would bother me, but after a short while I didn't even notice it as I was really relaxed. I asked family members in the room if they could hear it and they replied that it was barely audible to them.

I haven't used it in the car yet but I can see it's benefits. On long journeys my shoulders would get very stiff and tight from driving, especially on the motorway. I would think that when you took a break then it would be really beneficial to pull this out and have a five minute massage in the car.

Overall I can honestly say that I really love this massager and I think it's great value for the price, currently £37.99 on Amazon!  I can offer my readers a 16% discount on Amazon using the code:5FGVWXGE

This massager would make a fabulous Christmas present and coming soon to Amazon will be the special Christmas Edition Massager.



What do you think? Is there anyone you know who would like a massager for Christmas? Naipo also do many other massaging products for anyone with health problems, do a lot of sport or work outs, or just simply enjoys a massage.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
