When I was around 19, I was told that I had bulging discs in my lower back. Masseuses have scolded me for how bad my shoulders are. In short, I have a bad back so when I bought an at-home back massager, I was jazzed at the prospects of loosening tension while binge-watching Parks and Recreation. If you also want the freedom to enjoy your at-home life while getting a semi-spa-like experience, might I suggest the Naipo Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager. This contraption helps get out the tightest of shoulder knots and deepest of tension, all the while letting you sit upright on the couch and get on with your at-home duties. The best part of it is, while it may look like a straight jacket, the armbands allow you to control the pressure. Let your arms hang loose and you have a nice kneading sensation. Pull them towards you and you have a jackhammer attempting to break apart concrete. The nodes alternate between clockwise and counter-clockwise and have three different speed settings. Plus, there’s a heat function that doubles up on the tension-breaking abilities. If your back is begging for a massage but you just can’t spend the day at a spa, this is the at-home solution you deserve. | Get it on Amazon >
