SO worth it! Review by Lonnie Waugh
Product Rating
Ok I was skeptical with all of the glowing reviews and the "stop thinking about it and just buy it" rhetoric thinking maybe they were paid reviewers or something... but wow! .. I got it today and I absolutely love it ... I have lower back pain from sitting at a desk all day as a programmer, and even though I've only had this thing a few hours I already feel SO much better.. I think I have some kind of nerve problem as well because I randomly get foot cramps when I'm sitting for extended periods, but I've not h ad a single cramp since I turned this thing on...

I really had no idea what I was getting myself into with this... there are rotating balls that are heated and vibrate, 4 of them that spin so it feels like someone is kneading you deeply like a real massage.. then after a bit they change rotation in the opposite direction...

I swear it was instant pain relief... I don't know if I will be taking it to work with me or not, I had it running for about 2 hours today when I got home and haven't felt any pain since then so I think I will leave it at home and see how long the relief lasts ... if I think I need it at work I will likely just buy a second one ... I do wish the cord was a little longer though, I don't have any outlets near my bed and I'd love to try this on my calves when laying down

This pillow is amazing for those who suffer from chronic neck or back pain! Review by Breeana
Product Rating
I have suffered from chronic neck and back pain for 3 years now. I have been to several doctors, tried several medications, tried physical therapy, been to a chiropractor and had a couple sets of nerve injections and nothing has seemed to help me much. I'm only 26 years old and I'm on several medications for pain that cause me to constantly be drowsy and this pillow along with essential oils has saved me from a life of constant pain! I've only had this for a couple weeks and already my pain has reduced drastically! The first couple times I used it I was sore because it is a very deep massage but it's definitely worth it! I have tried several other massage pillows and this one is by far the best I've ever tried! (Posted on 5/16/16)
My work offers free massages but the hours suck so I bought this Review by Cameala Freed
Product Rating
I have had a real pain in my neck for a few years whenever I happen to sleep in the wrong position. Seems to always be one side. My work offers free massages but the hours suck so I bought this. It has really helped. I usually have a sweatshirt on so the heat function I can't feel. But without a shirt you can feel the heat. The heat is nice but not necessary. It is a deep massage and can be painful if you don't position it correctly. I usually position it on the back of a couch so I can control the pressure for a more pleasurable experience. I sometimes put it vertically along one shoulder to work just one side of my back. I really like that I can use it in the car. So far it has held up to a lot of use. The biggest downfall is it is not cordless but for the price I think it is reasonable. It's not too loud but also not silent. To loud to use while trying to sleep but not so loud you couldn't watch TV while it is on.

Great well made massager Review by GT
Product Rating
The massager is well made and can be used effectively on different parts of the body. I run, play tennis, swim, bicycle, and value the deep sports massage that this massager is capable of giving. I bought it to accompany the larger back massager made by the same company which also uses a similar mechanism. (Posted on 5/16/16)

LOVE the heat from this massage Review by Juli Zimmerman
Product Rating
I love this massage pillow. The smooth rotating gizmos inside the mesh can just dig right into the tightest knots in my back and shoulders. My back hurts for a few days after I use this product but only because I press my back into it to relieve those knots. Any deep massage will make you feel bruised after you have it done.
My kids keep stealing this from me to use after a sports workout or just if their back feels tired. Great product. We love it!

I love the products.
It's works as good as the one that I seen in the store being demonstrated.
I love that fact that I can use it in my car, the only things that stops me from giving it a five rating, is because it doesn't go in the opposite direction.
But the price is great. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Shiatsu Massage Pillow Review by Eleanor Sesto
Product Rating
I LOVE IT. I use it every day. I have a problem with my neck, I use a little pillow with it because it's a little intense. The only problem I have with it is the plug is a little flimsy, the connector to the massager.It unplugs with a little movement. But overall it is fantastic.I would highly recommend it.

Just right size and convenient to use Review by geri morgan
Product Rating
I like the size and the rolling, shiatsu motion of this massager. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that when I lean on the pillow/massager a little (when it's up against the back of my recliner) it shuts off. I think this is a safety feature, and so I understand it might cause the motor to overheat. What massage motion I do get is soothing, and it is right-sized for using on specific areas of my back, hips and shoulders. I don't use the heat feature so can't comment on that.

The product arrived quickly and in good condition. Easy to use and store when not in use.

I would recommend this product for its positive features, with the caveat noted above. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Virginia Pisciotta Review by Feels Good
Product Rating
I like the portability, and how I can move it around to hit the spots I need. You have to experiment a little to find the optimum positions, but it feels good. There are no level settings, but the strength of the massage can be varied by the amount of pressure from your body - the harder you lay against it, the harder the massage. It gives plenty of heat. I'm happy I bought this. Be aware that the pillow is not soft or bendable, but I guess it can't be with a motor inside. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Fantastic!! Review by JJ
Product Rating
I hurt my back to the point of x-rays and pain medication. I see a chiropractor regularly, but went on AMAZON to find something to help ease my spasming muscles. I overnighted this, and am so ridiculously happy with it. I've used it on our very soft couch with a pillow behind it to make it reach my lower back. I'm using it now on my desk chair in my classroom. It is virtually silent and is helping me get through the day as a 6th grade teacher. The heat is perfect. To the reviews that said it's not strong enough...I am not a small woman...a little above average and I actually LAID on it for a bit last night and the motor didn't slow a bit. For use in a chair, I can't see how it's not strong enough. Also, to the reviews that say the massagers should be rounded instead of flat: I think the flattened design allows me to lean more fully against the pillow. I like the design very much.

Word of caution though...I used it so repeatedly last night, I woke up with a callous/blister in one particularly sore spot that I must have unconsciously been leaning in further to dig the sore muscles. That's on me though. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Wonderful Massager, Review by R. Howie "history nut"

I have tried it on my lower back and on my neck. It works. I also used it on my left ankle after twisting and straining the ankle. I really notice the soothing heat.

I never write reviews Review by Harold Berson
Product Rating
I have multiple herniated and/or bulging discs in my neck and back so I am constantly getting bad knots in my shoulders, shoulder blades and lower back. I spent years lifting weights, so I have a thicker build and am told I am not the easiest person to work on from massage therapists, esp when the knots are deep. I recently purchased this pillow and I have to admit I was shocked and impressed with how well it works. If you really lean into it, it has enough power to really get in there. I've only had it for a week or so, but It's been great as a complement to whatever therapy I am doing at the time. My sister has some of the same spine issues and she tried It yesterday. I ordered one for her today. Give it a try. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Almost perfect - except for the length of the cord, Review by Stephanie
Product Rating
I have an older HoMedics shiatsu massager that essentially wore through the cover, so I bought this to replace it.

The good: it gets really warm and it puts a lot of ""pressure"" into the massage, causing some ""good"" pain. I was really leaning hard into the pillow, and it didn't slow down. So comparing the heat and pressure, I like this one much more than the HoMedic. I also really liked that it also came with a car charger to use it in the car. It's also pretty quiet (quieter than the HoMedics).

However, the bad is - to me - almost unforgivably bad. The cord is very short, so you can't get very far with it. So basically, it fits one part of my L shaped desk, but not the other. (which is no more than 5 feet - and probable less.) Meaning that every time I move around, it comes out from the wall and turns off. It's extremely frustrating. I never had that problem with the HoMedics massager.

There are definitely more good than bad with this, but the bad is a real problem for the set up in my office, where I use it. It essentially renders it unusable for what I need. However, I probably won't return it, because I do really like the heat and pressure and it was cheap enough I can justify keeping it at home and using it when the need strikes there (where I won't be moving.) But as an office massager, it was a total failure.

Oh, one more thing - it changes the direction of the massage every few minutes, I'm indifferent to that feature - to me, it's not a selling point, but it also doesn't take anything away from it. One direction is really preferable to work out my kinds, so it doesn't benefit me, though someone else may love (or hate) that feature. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Fantastic. Review by Mike

I had a similar massager that I had purchased from Brookstone. I really liked it, but lost it in a move. This one is great. I love the heat function on it. Although next time I might purchase the ZMA 14, as its slightly bigger. Its also nice as this comes with a car adapter. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Love this, Review by D. Morris
Product Rating
I got this for my husband, but he like it so much I had to try it out myself. Wow, I was surprised how good it felt. It has plenty of pressure and never digs into my backbone like some older massagers of other brands did. It can be a bit touchy when using it at the neck - it may be a little bit strong, in which case you can put a towel on your neck first to soften the massage. It's small enough to move to different parts of your back, and also has a couple straps which allow you to hold it on your leg or some other part of your body where you might need to secure it in place. It would be better if the straps were long enough so that you could just shimmy it down your back into different locations using the straps. At present, you have to stress your arms by trying to reach behind you to change the position which is not only inconvenient, but sort of undoes some of the relaxation you've obtained.

Great massager, Review by Meelah R.
Product Rating
I get the right pressure by how much I push my back into it. The connector keeps on getting detached, so I just taped it and it works fine. Seller sent follow up communication and that was good business practice. Arrived on time along with the other massager I bought from same seller. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Exceeded expectations Review by tradinitup
Product Rating
My biggest concern was the strength of the motor. I.e, how much pressure can you place on it before the motor begins to whirl from too much weight. I'm not a huge guy, 190 pounds on a 6 foot frame, but big enough to potentially strain the device depending on my sitting position and area where the pillow is placed. Let me tell you, I've placed this device underneath my thighs while sitting in an office chair and the balls kept rolling albeit a little bit slower. Now, it remains to be seen the long term stress this places on the motor but so far so good. I use it on multiple spots everyday; thighs, back, and neck specifically.
The pillow also has a heated feature...the balls literally glow red. And yes, they can be unbearably hot if placed directly on the skin. As our tolerance for heat varies, some may find this to be just what the doctor ordered. I find the temp is perfect with a light t-shirt or shorts. It provides therapeutic heat for my lower back.
I'm extremely happy with the purchase thus far and finding it for 80 dollars cheaper is the icing on the cake. I will update my review over the next few months paying special attention to the life of the internal motor. Happy relaxation! (Posted on 1/21/14)

can't get enough, Review by Brendon M. Baker "bambren"
Product Rating
i love this thing. combo of rollers and heat makes prolonged periods of desk-sitting tolerable. i've been using it for about 2-3 hours a day, so i'm nervous about how the motor will hold up, but so far so good. no signs of wear or slow-down.

my only complaint is how easily the cord separates. i suppose it functions like the magnetic connection on mac AC adapter, but a slightly more stable link would prevent the unnecessary disconnects that occur from swiveling my chair or moving around. still, not a big enough issue to take a star away.

A powerful little machine Review by Dr. O'Brien
Product Rating
I originally purchased this to use in the car, as I have a long commute and chronic back pain due to scoliosis. The massager is a bit too bulky and strong for me to use while driving... It puts me rather close to the steering wheel, and I'm a little nervous that it might impact my ability to react quickly to traffic. It IS very useful when I'm a passenger on long road trips, however. It's also perfect for use on the couch at home. The heat is perfect--not too hot, but effective. Buyers should be aware that this is a serious shiatsu machine. It's deep tissue massage, not a gentle vibration. This means you might be sore the next day--but for those looking for focused deep tissue massage, this is the next best thing to human hands. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Excellent Massage Pillow Review by Eve Waller

I purchased this unit when I was going to physio twice a week for a sciatia nerve, I have stopped going to physio, and use this daily for about 20 minutes. It is the best thing I have got. I have no pain in my lower back at all and I do not have the expense of physio or need to take the time to go. I would recommend this pillow to anyone with lower back pains, it is terrific. Before I purchased some people said they had problems with the cord coming out, but I have not had this problem at all. It is a great thing, and if something happened to it, I would replace it.

More than satisfied Review by nicole
Product Rating
I was very surprised how much this little portable massage pillow can do. Unlike other massagers, it is very easy to use. It had two modes, one regular and the other with the heat mode. I personally really like the heat mode. It does not over heat and burn your skin. The temperature is very consistent. I tried the heat mode over 15 min. last night and I didn not feel a bit uncomfortable. I mainly used it for lower back, but I also tried it on my neck and shoulders, and it works perfectly too! I recommended this product to my mom, and she loves it too, and we are getting another two for our friends! Awesome product! Definitely a good buy! (Posted on 1/21/14)

Flawed, but better than the HoMedics SP-20H Review by Ted
Product Rating
I'm a normal weight person who uses this for trigger points. I've been happy with the Zyllion. There are a few design flaws, which can be corrected:

* On bare skin, the heat will burn your skin, such as on the neck. Corrected with a pillow case.

* There's a breakaway cord which breaks away too easily. Tape didn't work. Corrected with heat-activated shrink tube. UPDATE: As a commenter pointed out, the plugs will semi-lock into place if you push and twist hard enough. This isn't intuitive, and some other reviewers complain about it, so if you're gifting this, it's something I'd point out.

* The power button can be accidentally pressed by the shoulder when massaging the neck. The workaround is to position the massager so the button is on the top, where it is less likely to be pressed.

The motor is powerful and the action is good.

I recently bought the HoMedics SP-20H for comparison. The material is nice, but the motor is weak and the action is poor. I'll be returning the HoMedics. (Posted on 1/21/14)
those massagers work! Review by A. Mcconaghy
Product Rating
I'm also one of those that can't stand the light kind of massage-- although it might hurt more, getting really in the stressed muscles is the only way for relief! This massager does it! Of course you get creative w/ positioning it so it reaches all the spots, but even when I layed on it for my neck, the twirly massage heads kept up nice and strong. The heat was not nearly too hot for me at all. I read the other reviews, went w/ this one and have not been disappointed! One 'con' for me, tho, is the cord is not long enough...but that's pretty minor. (Posted on 1/21/14)

God sent angle for My back Pain. Review by Muhsien Chiu
Product Rating
I'm at the second trimester of my pregnancy. The back pain has became a main issue for me. There is no way I can spent $100 to get massage everyday nor to purchase a huge massage chair. Then I found this baby.
First of all, with this price, the quality of the product is unbelievable. It comes in nice package. The pillow is small , the perfect size to fit on your back and shoulder without being too heavy. The materials are very nice and sturdy. It also comes with charge for home and car. In another word, you can bring this baby with you everywhere.
My skin usually gets itchy or uncomfortable after sitting on massage chair for too long. But I don't have that issue with this pillow. The mesh cover is comfortable,the rolling balls changes direction periodically, and you can adjust your self or pillow easily. My skin is fine with the long usage.
The heat is another plus for this product. It's not adjustable. But the temperature is just right. A little warm but not hot, just enough to relax your muscle !
Now I can have a nice back /shoulder massage everyday without breaking the bank. One of the best purchase I made !!

Expectations met, and then some. Review by Brittany Carling

I'm currently in a deployed environment and needed something easy to ship and that would help with back pain. This product met that easily!!! First off, it shipped to a different country faster than I've gotten items in the STATES! Secondly, it works perfectly. Heats up quickly, massages very well, has a lot of power to it. You can use the "non-heat" option as well and its just as great. It will reverse from counter clock-wise to clock-wise. I use it daily and have noticed a huge difference. I've recommended this product to three other co-workers so far. (Posted on 1/21/14)

This thing really works you over. Review by squashpup "squashpup"
Product Rating
I''ve had chronic back problems for some time, and this thing is the only sure fire method that gives me relief. Really powerful massage with soothing heat works the soreness out of tired, achy back muscles.

The first day I used it, it actually made my back sore! Not in a bad sort of way, mind you. More like that feeling you get after a workout when your muscles are sore. It's not a bad thing, and relieving the deep-muscle soreness is well worth it. I also had to make some adjustments in positioning the massager to find the right spot. Once you find it, you won't want to move.

If I had to complain about any aspect of it, I'd have to say that I wish it was a little thinner. Of course, I realize there are design limitations with making such a device, so I can't criticize it too much.

This is definitely the relief I have been waiting for, and if I had it to do over again, I'd buy it in a second.

EDIT: 11/29/13 :Got this thing this thing earlier this week, went to visit my parents. I raved to them about how great it was. Dad tried it for 10 minutes. So did Mom. Then, Dad immediately got online and ordered two of them.

If that's not a testimonial, I don't know what is. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Great product, Review by M. Donnelly

I've had pretty serious back pain for over a year and have been to a back specialist and had extensive physical therapy. The pt has certainly increased strength and mobility (don't skip that part of treatment) but it's this Shiatsu pillow that reliably gives pain relief when nothing else works-- I use it every night. It also allows me to sit back and watch television-- I can't sit back any other way. The heat is great as well as the fairly strenuous massage. Highly recommended (Posted on 1/21/14)

Great value, great product! Review by patrickb714
Product Rating
Just received mine and have been using it for the last hour, I think it's already paid for itself in the one hour I've been using it!
My back hasn't felt so good in a while, the same feeling you get after a good deep tissue massage.

I was worried that it would not have enough pressure but it has plenty, if you lean too hard against it it can get a little painful, but like they say, no pain no gain! You can feel the heat as well, would have preferred if it was a litter hotter, but it's warm enough.
Overall, this is a great value, if you're thinking about some kind of personal massage unit, this is one you should consider. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Like many of the other people have mentioned in other reviews, I have not had to go to a therapist since receiving the massage pillow. I was a regular customer of the therapist needing to go in every 7-10 days to relieve muscle tightness and spasm in my back. I use the unit pretty much every night even if I feel fine because I realize that I have tightness even if there is no pain, probably due to scoliosis, sitting too much and sometimes twisting wrong. I bought a 5 foot extension cord so I can sit on the couch with it and use the couch cushion to hold the unit in place. It can be used in all different areas where ever you have discomfort. Having had the experience it hurting when therapists work on tight spots, I am not afraid to put the balls in the area where it hurts and have it really do a deep muscle massage. I am going to buy an extra unit just in case this one breaks. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Wonderful, deep massage pillow! Review by kaylhs1
Product Rating
Love how deep this gets into my neck and shoulders. I can position it wherever I need it to really break up the knots and tension in my neck and shoulders. For those wanting a gentler massage, simply pad it with a folded towel, blanket... to find your perfect pressure. Ordered this for my daughter and loved it so much, I ordered one for myself!

Fantastic item! Review by Adnan Mansoor
Product Rating
Love this thing. It def hits the lower back wherever you may be hurting, and is small enough to quickly adjust. While the motors do go slowly when you apply TOO much back pressure (or if you end up laying on it - I don't recommend you necessarily do that), they def still power through. Hate stretching after workouts (like a lot of guys do) and so this helps deal with that as well. Takes a bit before the heat starts firing up and can be turned off during massage as well. Try it, and hey if you don't like it then return it. I highly recommend it! (Posted on 1/21/14)

Great Massager Review by Richard
Product Rating
Massager works great. The heat function puts out just the right amount of heat and the massager has plenty of power so it continues to operate even if you put a lot of pressure against it. I usually use it while watching tv, either laying in bed or sitting on the couch. It works great on the shoulders and back. It is ok for the neck area, but the massaging heads are a little too far apart. My wife likes it as much as I do. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Great for chronic aches and pains!! Review by Amazon Customer
Product Rating
My husband and I both have chronic back and neck pain. I got this for him for his birthday, hoping to ease his neck when he travels long distances for work. He loves it and I love it. The heat is just right, not to hot, but it does take a little while to heat up. Unlike other full body massagers that you put in a chair, you can move this to any spot that need attention. I loved it so much I am buying my dad one for Christmas!! (Posted on 1/21/14)

My rate was 4 before,but now I love this. This is the great product as this price. Heat works well and massage pressure is strong enough.

It actually works! Review by Nettie1995
Product Rating
Ok…I'm a little shocked, this actually works! The pressure is surprisingly strong and the heat is just right. My husband and I have both taken turns with it the last 24 hours and he even said that he was surprised. I feel like it is priced correctly as long as it holds up! It has an automatic shut off and an option to turn the heat off. The massager goes in a circular motion on both sides and then changes directions several times during the "program". I am going to buy this for my family members! (Posted on 1/21/14)

Got Knots? Review by Summer "Luv2read"
Product Rating
Saw this on amazon at a great price and bought it for myself. Liked it so much went back and bought 2 more as holiday gifts.
It's well made and I like the fact that this model is offered in leather . (there is a light color that is not)
The massage action is gentle enough to use on neck, legs, back etc. but also strong enough to do the job. The heat is not 'hot' but comfortably warm and can be turned off if you prefer.. I like the 20 minute automatic shut off as I admit, I fell asleep using it. I've tried and returned 3 other portable massage units and this one is definitely a keeper. . (Posted on 1/21/14)
Shiatsu Massage is, by definition, intense, Review by E. Williams "dew drop"
Product Rating
Shiatsu massage is supposed to be intense pressure. This massager meets that expectation perfectly. I like being able to move the massager to any area of my back or legs. For areas where the pressure might be too much, I place a towel or blanket over the massage heads, which works very well. Only two negatives: 1) the connector where cord plugs into the machine comes apart very easily. I fixed this by tying them together so that if the cord gets pulled, the plug doesn't pop out; 2) the strap that is supposed to wrap around the back of a chair is too short for all but the smallest chairs. You can correct this by adding some 1 1/2 to 2" wide velcro strips in whatever length you need. The strap, as is, was too short to go around the back of an office chair. I had to add about a foot of velcro. But other than those two issues, the massager itself is wonderful. I like the ability to turn on/off the heat, and also the fact that the machine shuts itself off automatically after about 15 minutes. (Posted on 1/21/14)

The Portable Masseuse Review by Michael S Hannan
Product Rating
The product is AMAZING! Having tried nearly every massager on the market after 20 plus years of back/neck pain, I was reluctant to try another. But this was recommended by someone at work who does ergonomic assessments. I've had hundreds of professional massages, and this is like having a personal masseuse you can carry around with you! EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!!! (Posted on 1/21/14)

Zyllion ZMA-13-BK Shiatsu better than all the rest! Review by Richard Thomas
Product Rating
This is the best shiatsu machine I've seen. My 95 year old mother-in-law has been using shiatsu machines for years to reduce back pain from osteoporosis. Until she received the Zyllion ZMA-13-BK, she considered another well known brand to be the best. Now, she thinks the Zyllion is so much better and will not be going back to the other brand she had been using. The Zyllion is light weight, compact and easy to handle. The balls are flattened a little to help spread out the pressure when pressed against an aching muscle. The heat function is also soothing. The materials of construction are high quality and the quality of construction is excellent. And, it's from a conscientious company. I highly recommend this product. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Satisfied Review by Deborah C Ormond
Product Rating
This massage is great! It works the tension and pain out of my muscles and leaves me feeling relaxed. The kneading motion of the shiatsu rollers are amazing. I prefer my Zyllion massage over a human massage. My Zyllion massage does not get tired, maintains evenly applied pressure no matter how much weight I put on it, and without hesitation wonderfully massages any where I need massaging. Its size is just right. The compact size allows for free flowing movement to position the massage at exactly the spot I need massaged

Customer service is outstanding. Their goal is for every customer to have an outstanding experience with their products. I am a believer. Customer service provided me an experience above and beyond my expectation for which I am grateful because I am experiencing the power of their massage product. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Compare this product to the one sold at the famous Back Store's for twice the price Review by Dr. "Oceanfront"
Product Rating
This massager is almost exactly the same as the one sold at the Back store, except for a minor cosmetic difference "" http://www.relaxtheback.com/kneading-back-massage-cushion.html""). This one is hands down the winner!
I have a serious back issue and have probably tried most products on the market. Before I used this, I had the I-need (brookstone) which was helpful, but a toy compared to this product.

The powerful rollers actually knead your tight muscles, one way and then the other. It also supplies heat which relaxes the muscles even further. The quality of this machine is the best I have seen, and it is as good as my Physicall Therapist (okay, better!) who charges $90/hour..plus I don't have to leave the house! :)

The versatility of this product is second to none. I had a tight muscle in my neck that were giving me a headache. After a short session with this product, my muscles were looser and the headache gone. I also sometimes rub a cream on before using it to get deep down absorption (such as salanpas, bio freeze, or whatever you like to use).
I love this device!

Also, customer service is excellent and I would not hesitate to buy from this company again. Thank you (Posted on 1/21/14)

Almost like a real person Review by Jess Ohanlone
Product Rating
Those rolling balls feel almost like a real person kneading your muscles. I must own every type of massager on the market and this is by far and away my favorite. It fits exactly to the two muscles that run down your spine and it avoids running over your joints. It rolls the muscles almost like a masseuse. It is heavenly. If you like massage, this will definitely appeal to you. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Works great! Review by Nancy Moore "NanO"

I bought this for my back while driving. I often take very long driving trips and my back gets fatigued. The heater is fabulous! And the mechanism works just like it's supposed to. One thing concerned me when I ordered this -- the massage would be too firm. And I was right. It's also difficult to get it adjusted. I have to let the seat back down quite a ways before it gets low enough to reach my lumbar region. I would rather have a full body massager but couldn't find one to suit me. This will do the job, it's just a bit awkward. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Perfect!, Review by jlinja
Product Rating
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend who constantly has knots in his back. They are very specifically located, so I chose this pillow instead of a larger chair-type massager, so that he would be able to pinpoint exactly where he wanted the massage. The shiatsu balls provide a perfect amount of pressure, and you can also control that by how far back you lean into the massage. Very easy to use - one button control - and very easily portable (in the car, in the office, around the house) due to its size.

My only issue with the massager is the strap that allows you to attach it to a chair - the strap is far too short for a regular office chair. It is extremely stretched out on the farthest settings, and it is concerning that the elastic may wear out quickly.

However, overall I am very pleased with this massage pillow! (Posted on 1/21/14)

Christmas came early! :) Review by love2dive
Product Rating
I am one happy customer! My expectations for the Shiatsu Massage Pillow w/ Heat were low, but this is a fantastic product.

Pros:
- The pillow actually feels really good! When combined with the heat, the balls really help to work out knots and sore muscles
- I didn't realize this until I was using it myself, but the balls reverse direction automatically, which adds a nice change of pace
- The pillow looks durable and sturdy; it's not made of cheap materials
- The pillow comes with both a wall and a car charger, so you can use it in bed, at work, or while driving
- It has an automatic off switch (after 20 minutes of use)
- You can place a decent amount of weight on it, and it doesn't slow the balls down. I like deep tissue massages and I can use as much or as little pressure as I like with no impact on performance

Cons:
- The cord comes out of the back of the pillow - hopefully it is as durable as it looks

Ultimately, I highly recommend this pillow! I couldn't be happier! :)

UPDATE - Removed a ""con"" from the list, courtesy of another user (thank you very much!) Now, this pillow is pretty perfect! Also, the cord coming from the back has proven not to be a problem whatsoever, and I've used it quite a bit. Still extremely happy with my purchase! :) (Posted on 1/21/14)
Massager Review by Jessica N.
Product Rating
I am not giving this pillow 5 stars on account of two issues. Some days I wish that the massaging balls were closer together in the pillow, I need to use a blanket on top of it because it can be a little rough on my back, and I paid $50 for it. However, after a long day at work this can really calm me down. My upper shoulders at time feel slightly bruised after using it but I know that I have significant knots, so the soreness may just be from working on them. The heat is nice and it does not get too hot. My husband did not like it. (Posted on 1/21/14)

I freaking love it Review by Kim C.
Product Rating
I almost want to order another one of these for backup in case anything happens to the one I bought. I seriously love this thing. I use it in bed on my shoulder/neck area and even on my middle and lower back in bed with my arms holding me up half way. I use it on my calves because I do hill walks daily and my calves get tight. I'm overweight and can still lay on it when I'm massaging my neck and the motor doesn't slow down, it's very powerful.

The heat gets very hot, and the rotating balls have a slight softness so it's a very comfortable deep massage. The 20 minute auto shut off puts my mind at ease that I don't have to worry about it overheating. (Posted on 1/21/14)

My Massage Slave Review by Megami
Product Rating
Gets all parts of my body.. Back,shoulders, neck, legs, arms and even feet!!!! U just have to know how to put it on right.
Tried in the car and works great too!!!! Def easier in the car for massaging the shoulders since it is already positioned for u perfectly. :)

The cord does not get disconnected easily!!! U just have to plug it in securely until u hear a click. Perhaps even twist it in; push all the way in and u wouldn't have the disconnecting problem whatsoever!! I didn't know it goes in more until I tried lol. Now I know it can connect very securely in place! I hope that people (that gave negative rating because they couldn't figure it out) read this!!!! Lol

Before I got this, I got the massage cushion. Didn't work out well for me at all because the neck kneading didn't really reach sore part of my neck and seat massage didn't do anything for me lol. This one I really love. Hubby liked the cushion better but he said he doesn't care as long as I'm happy. But he was WHOA~~ that feels so good~~ when I made him use it on his legs lol! This one is convenient and light, very easy to use. I said to him that if I were the president of the company I would call this ""My Massage Slave"". LOL. ;-p

Oh ps I use extension cord for my iPhone and iPad charger too so I don't think the cord is too short, it's just normal. (Posted on 1/21/14)

I like it! Review by Jeff
Product Rating
First of all this seems to be a very well built product. I have been using it almost daily for several months and some days for several hours total time. The only issue so far is a little bit of a clicking noise when leaning back into it very hard. This massage pillow works for all over the back and neck. It works best for me in a recliner where I can control the pressure by how far back I lean. Beware that a lot of pressure against this massage pillow can rub your skin raw and or cause bruising. Other than that this machine can really help with tense sore muscle problems. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Well made, worthwhile product Review by Gretchen Bjerstedt
Product Rating
Excellent product--I drove from WA state to PA and back and could not have done it without this massage pillow. We used it in the car as well as in motels and various stopovers. It relieved driving fatigue in back and leg muscles while traveling and really helped rejuvenate the body after using so many different beds and furnishings along the way.

At home it is a great help for back problems as well as arthritis and can be used as often as needed. The shiatsu motion can be gentle or more vigorous depending upon the pressure you apply and the heat is a very comfortable addition.

I will not be anywhere without this product from now on. (Posted on 1/21/14)

A great massage at a great price Review by Todd B. "Todd"
Product Rating
Back in July 2000, I had a four-level fusion of my cervical spine as a result of degenerative disc disease that developed during my service in the Air Force years earlier, probably from field work and deployment exercises and a rigorous fitness routine. Although the surgery was successful and gave me several years of good nerve function and no pain, a few years ago, many of the symptoms returned. I now suffer from chronic neck pain, partial atrophy of my right arm, and a degenerating right shoulder because of the lost muscles that support and protect the joint. The pain is most debilitating in the morning when I get up, and I needed a non-pharmaceutical solution to keeping the pain under control (I hate narcotics because of the side-effects, and extended NSAID use bothers my stomach). I also work out a lot (two hours/four days/week) to maintain my conditioning and prevent further loss of muscle function. Being the parent of two-year old twins, being able to get up and manage them in the morning without pain is essential.

After looking on online, I found a large selection of massage devices, but wanted one that I could lie on rather than hold. I also liked the added benefit of heat. The Zyllion did the trick...I've used it twice and have experience tremendous relief that lasts for the days, without the need for meds. The gentle heat also is very soothing, although it does take a few minutes to get to temperature.
Another feature is the periodic reversal of the massage cycle, with the massage balls reversing their direction every couple of minutes.

I recommend the Zyllion to anybody suffering from neck pain...given the complex nature of my injuries, I have found it to provide welcome relief. My only suggestion is that using it for longer than the 20 minute run cycle is not a good idea...I used it for 40 consecutive minutes and ended up with a sore vertebrae for a few days...that was my fault...too much of a good thing is not so good. Finally, an unintended consequence of the device is that it is very entertaining to my two year olds...the massage balls glow a deep red color when the heat is on, which they found mesmerizing...they could not stop watching the balls as they orbited inside the pillow! As a result, I had to hide it from them...they thought it was a wonderful toy! (Posted on 1/21/14)
Clutch Review by letusunite
Product Rating
as been amazing to say the least. It takes a bit of effort to position the pillow, but when it's in the right spot... oh, you'll know it. Studying has never been more productive as I can sit in this chair for longer periods of time, and it definitely warms up any sore muscles. I herniated a disc in my lower back a few months ago, and this pillow has been the only thing that has been able to relieve the symptoms, at least for a little bit. If you position the pillow to massage your traps/neck, it is heavenly. I used the thing for 3-4 hours straight, right out of the box, and it overheated and shut off. I waited an entire day and was so glad that it turned back on again. It's been working without any issues since then.

I read some reviews that say it is easy to disconnect the cord, and I agree. It hasn't really been a problem for me though unless I'm lying in bed and shifting a lot. Also, the motors are very powerful and can support me (190-200 lbs.) without much trouble. I can see the motors being an issue if you accidentally position the pillow too high on your neck; it can squeeze the occipital part of your skull at an uncomfortably high pressure, so be careful when you use it! The heat generated from the pillow is adequate and definitely helps a lot, and the change in direction of the spinning motors is awesome. It hits the same muscles differently, and it feels great.

It's less useful for my quads and hamstrings because I am so ticklish, but for my upper and lower back, there is no replacement. It's okay to use on the chest and arms, but I have a foam roller that hits those areas slightly better. Still, it's a great product, and I am thankful for it! (Posted on 1/21/14)
OH! Ow! Oh God! Ow - Oh yes! Don't stop!!!! Review by S. Maguire
Product Rating
After a bunch of research, for me the choice came down between this one and the ""Prospera Kneading Massage Cushion"", which is about $10 cheaper. I didn't care all that much about the cost, because let's face it - if you find a massager that works well for you, the ROI is easy to justify. It costs me $60 for an hour massage, so I can pretty much make it up in 2-3 uses with this. The Prospera had 200+ reviews and 4 stars average. This one only had about 70 and 4.5 stars. That's pretty even on the star count, but what sold me was the existing rave reviews of the Zyllion. I'm glad I listened to you people.

Use #1 - Went to the mall with my wife and sat in the passengers seat with this thing working my neck. Oh man, by the time she pulled up to Macy's, I was like - ""I'll meet you inside"". She gave me a dirty look - I didn't care. I could hardly notice her evil eye through the groans coming out of me. I've had limited range of my neck for some time and this thing was working me over pretty good as I wriggled around in my seat to apply more pressure and adjust the position.

Use #2 - I got home from the mall and immediately high tailed it to the bedroom. I was wondering - ""Will this thing work on my back?"" I'm currently suffering from frozen shoulder on my left shoulder and I can feel this massive knot - it feels like a baseball size hunk of muscle tissue stuck just below my shoulder blade. I went to work on it. I'm 6'2"", 190. I was pressing down on this thing and you could just feel it kneading through the giant knot ball. It started warming up (the balls are actually glowing red in the heat mode), and I'll be honest - while I was doing it, I was going deep, so I wouldn't quite call it pleasure - unless you're into deep tissue pain, but once you let go and let it work its magic - WHAMO! After about 20 minutes I felt like I worked that ball of knots right out of my back.

This morning, I woke up sore. I told my wife my neck felt great and the back felt like someone beat me up pretty good. BUT - it's the kind of pain that you know is going to result in good things - more relaxed, less aches and stiffness, better range of motion. A step back for a very big step forward.

Best of all - I can use it anytime and any place I want. So, for me? This thing is an award winner and a no brainer.

PS - Don't forget to drink lots of water after you're done with a good massage! (Posted on 1/21/14)

Amazing! Review by sandra christopher
Product Rating
" was given this as a gift from a wonderful friend of mine, who knew I was suffering from back pain. If someone would go that far to get me this unit, to help my pain, I thought I needed to write a review to help others.

This Shiatsu massager is the best. I had shoulder and neck spasms, and laid down on this for 20 minutes and slowly the spasms started to loosen up. There is heat in the 4 rollers and there seems to be some play in them, as if there is rubber on top. They feel just wonderful. Still, I didn't have that much believe in this product, because nothing seems to help.
She then had me try it on my low back. That was even better! I could feel the stress just leaving my muscles and after another 20 minutes I felt much better. My friend then had me throw on some Salonpas strips (mental stuff) and in another 10 minutes I was totally out of pain!!
This unit is truly amazing, and very well made. It also very nice looking and simple to use. I read a bunch of reviews and there is nothing wrong with the cord. Just twist it when you put it in.
This is a winner and I am so grateful I have one now. (Posted on 1/15/14)

Great Massager Review by Keyser Soze

Very strong. Like the heat balls as well. Has a strap that you can put around your desk chair. So it will massage your neck or lower back etc. I definitely liked that it wasn't a tickle, and would push back when you pushed your back against it. (Posted on 1/15/14)
Like It! Review by R. Kim

Remarkably sturdy and well-made, it does what it is intended to. I use it every day at the office, when sitting down all day creates a lot of discomfort for me. Worth the money. (Posted on 1/15/14)
Works but a little harsh Review by lakamine74

Would like to see it have a little more padding. Leaves me bruised but does what it is supposed to do. (Posted on 1/15/14)
It works but obviously needs to be improved!! Review by Julie at Plano, TX

Kneading parts should be rounded, instead of flat and angular. The pillow could be made soft, pliable so it is easy to use on different parts of the body. Various settings of vibrations also can be easily built in to make it deliver real massaging effects. The cord could be designed so it's not easily become disconnected. (Posted on 1/15/14)
Works Fairly Well Review by Gillian
Product Rating
I was really excited when I received this product because I have frequent back pain. However, I was slightly disappointed, and I have a few complaints about the product.

The main one is that, as some of the other reviews also say, the cord will not stay plugged into the unit. It is constantly falling out and I have to keep readjusting it, which really ruins the relaxing experience.

I also wish that this product had more settings. The nodes on the inside only can circle one way. It would be great if they could go different directions or speeds.

Also, while this product works pretty well for my lower back, I cannot seem to make it work on my upper back. The nodes are also too rough in that area and I can't find an upper back/neck position with the pillow that feels comfortable.

That being said, there are several positive aspects about this product. I like the heat it gives off. It feels like just the right temperature. I also really liked that the product came with a car adapter, and that overall the pillow seems to be fairly good quality. Like I said, works fairly well for my lower back!" (Posted on 1/15/14)
Excellent Value & Back pain relief Review by Karen Carter
Product Rating
The Zyllion message pillow comes in a nice cardboard box with a plastic carrying handle, a standard 120v power adapter, and a separate car power adapter. The pillow has a soft leather (suprised me) covering with a nylon type netting over the massage area, the quality of which is very good.
There is no heat adjustment setting, however, the heat is absolutely perfect for me, between the high and medium setting on my heating pad (high being too hot for long term, medium being too cold). The operation couldn't be simpler, a single push on the only button turns heat on and off, hold for 3 seconds to turn off. The pillow will automatically turn off after 20 minutes (5 minutes more than most units), and can be easily turned back on with a single push of the button if more time is desired, good safety protection against skin burns and other issues if you fall asleep with it on.
The message action is wonderful, a slightly elliptical rotating motion that switches direction every 3 minutes or so. The advantage of the pillow over a full message chair is the ability to place the pillow exactly where you need relief, instead of having to adjust your body to a fixed chair (or go thru a separate setup process). The portability of the pillow is also a nice plus, its small and portable (you can even use the box it comes in for storage and transportation) with a convenient strap for attaching it to your car seat if desired.
Overall this pillow did the trick for me, relieved my back pain and saved me lots of money over a message chair, very satisfied customer." (Posted on 1/15/14)
Awesome Massage Pillow Review by Abby Z.
Product Rating
This is almost the perfect massage pillow ever. I bought it because I'm 7 months pregnant and have a lot of tension in my lower and upper back, and this pillow hits the spot every time! The only spot I cannot get is my neck but I think that's mainly because I don't use it in a chair, only in bed. I use it several times a day and it gives no problems. It works great in the car for long trips and just amazing all together. I let my sister use it once and she fell in love with it as well. So great product and at such a great price too.
