The Instashiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager will hit the spot


While getting a massage or buying a massage chair seems like a great plan, you really never know what you’re going to get the first time around. You can pay a lot of money for a deep tissue rub down, but what if your masseuse doesn’t have enough arm strength to give you what you want? If you don’t have the perfect masseuse or money to sink into a chair, there are tons of portable options that you can throw less money at, and still get what you need.

The Instashiatsu uses the weight of your arms and gravity to work on sore spots without going overboard. This is a sling that will sit on your shoulders while the two handles for your arms will fall to the front. Of course, that’s the way it was intended for most people to use it. If you have decent grip and arm strength, this can really massage any of your limbs or back if you don’t mind it being a tad awkward. If you’re really sore, there’s even a heating option to add that little extra sigh of relief to the experience.

This is a cordless device that has a battery that will last for several hours, though you probably don’t want to use that up all at once or you’ll risk bruising something. The control panel is on the left front sling, and has an LED indicator light for when it’s powered on. You’ll also be able to switch directions at the drop of a hat with this $140 device. Since it’s small enough, it could even come with you into the office!
