How does it work?

This at-home Shiatsu massager features a long strap that drapes over your shoulders, with handles to rest your hands as you enjoy your massage. It uses eight kneading nodes to target your neck, shoulders and back, and features three adjustable intensity controls that range from gentle kneading to deep massage.

The massager is designed to perfectly fit the contours of your body for a professional-like massage and also features relaxing heat to improve blood circulation and relieve pain.

After 15 minutes, this massager automatically shuts off, so you don't even have to worry about falling asleep while wearing it.

Is it worth it?

According to Amazon reviewers, this massager is "great for pain relief" and really "gets rid of knots in your muscles and neck." To date, it's earned a 4.4-star average rating from 5,000 reviews and counting.

If you're unsure about the pressure and intensity that can come from a massager like this one, reviewers admit that it "exceeded expectations."

"Be prepared for a deep tissue massage," one person shared.

"It actually really helps my neck and shoulders," added another.

In addition to providing relief to the neck and shoulders, shoppers say that this massager "feels wonderful on the back" and is "great on legs too."

In spite of the many rave reviews, shoppers say that the biggest downside is that this massager must be plugged in while in use, unlike some other cordless models.

"It is a bit annoying to be next to a plug," admitted one reviewer.

The verdict

Customers agree that the WOQQW Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager offers "great value all around" — especially at its current sale price of $55. Whether as a gift for a loved one or a treat to yourself, it's an affordable way to help relieve neck and back pain at home.

However, because this massager does need to be plugged in while you use it, you may want to consider where you'll be able to comfortably sit in order to get the best experience.
