          You've been there. You checked out different neck and shoulder massagers. And you couldn't find the right massager because they all look the same - heavy, bulky, and kind of boring.

Its sleek, elongated streamlined design is adorned with plush-lined pockets for luxury and comfort. Rest your hands in the pockets and when you need to, adjust the position of the massager with ease--without taking your hands out! There's even more features. The new ZMA-08 neck and shoulder massager is beautiful on the inside, as well. Choose any of the 20 Massage Modes to give you a well-rounded massage. Play around with the wide range of 10 Power Settings to find the perfect massage intensity. And don't forget the Infrared Heating Function that'll help relieve pain by promoting blood circulation. Sounds impressive, no? And yet, with all these extras and features, the ZMA-08 neck and shoulder massager weighs under 6 lbs! It has just enough weight to sit properly on your body and deliver the right amount of massage pressure, but is light enough to not cause further muscle strain on you. It's so comfortable and versatile, you might just have to share. But at such an affordable price, it's perfect for gifting, because everyone should have their own!

I'm a small frame person but still this works great for me Review by Mother of 3
Product Rating
I'm a small frame person but still this works great for me. I've lived with back pain for 30 years and this gives me a way to get a different massage to hit muscles or areas to relax the muscles so my back go back in place when it goes out without going to a doctor. The only cons is it is heavier and noisy but then it can relax you when laying down. (Posted on 5/17/16)

Not bad, I "like" it Review by migo
Product Rating
I have never thought of using this type of neck/shoulder massager until I got it as a gift. Suprisingly, I actually enjoy it, specially when I am at work, after sitting/typing for more than 6 hours. I tried a similar massager at the mall, and I was not convinced and it was quite expensive. Overall, I am very happy that I have this based on several reasons: 1) The massager is actually quite powerful and I ususally set the level at 4. There was a review saying that the massager is too intense. I kind of disagree, maybe because I am 5'7 155 pounds. 2) The ""heat"" function is truly wonderful. I think it's terrific as it actually warms up my shoulder and my upper body. 3) The display shows exactly how many minutes left, which is convenient and I don't have to keep looking at the clock. In addition, the auto turn-off after 15min is a PLUS. 4) The pocket on the sides is very helpful as well. my coworker really likes the product because of the pockets.
Overall, I would recommend massage lovers out there to buy, or at least give it a try. There is only one thing I would suggest to make a difference. I wish this neck and shoulder massager comes in different colors. If they have pink, I will def. buy one for my gfs. (Posted on 1/21/14)

This product is very good.. I love the heat and the chop, chop, chop on my neck.. I especially love the pockets.. that way I can glide it down my back.. When it's on my neck I only use the 1st setting.. but on my back I use 10th setting.. Love this product and highly recommend it. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Great product! Review by BIGwhiteEGG
Product Rating
This is such a great product for the money you are paying for. The texture of the leather is soft, the pocket is comfortable, and the heating pad is a great plus. Just like in description the product is light in weight, I did not feel much pressure on my shoulder when I put it on, which is a great thing.

Although the product has 20 modes and 10 power setting, I do find it a little too strong beyond power level 3 or 4. I might have to blame it on my bony body, but still the massage is comfortable when I have it on low power setting.

I recommend anyone looking to buy a decent shoulder massager without spending too much to purchase this product. (Posted on 1/21/14)
You don't like tension headaches? Buy this! Review by KimK
Product Rating
Awesome, awesome, awesome......... I have not needed pain meds for headaches, neck pain, since I started using this beater. :) and beater it is. The other reviewers who said it is too strong, I can see where they are coming from. On first use I really thought someone punched me, but my neck and shoulder muscles after??? BLISS! I have gotten used to it and actually increase the settings now.... I am small, 115#, 5'3", and I still love it. Maybe I am sooo tense I really need a beating to relax those dang muscles. Only negative is after 3 weeks of daily use, one of the massagers completely stopped working..... :( I am really hoping the one I had was just a lemon as yes, I ordered another, free return. It has been a week now since I have been without it, and I can't WAIT to get my new one in the mail, to beat those muscles senseless again. It is almost as if I can feel them tightening tightening.... So, if you sound like me where you "wear" your stress in your neck/shoulder area, this is for you! (Posted on 1/21/14)
Hands-down a winner Review by Karen H Green
Product Rating
Just took it out of the box and my expectations are not just met, but exceeded. My upper shoulders are constantly tight and amazingly, this crazy looking shoulder massager actually has the power to pound them out. The heat is a nice feature, but it's really the strength of the pounding that helps the most, even at power level 1, it's a good force. At higher powers, it's fantastic. Definitely recommend.

A Massager That Actually Works Review by Nancy
Product Rating
I bought this neck massager one day as I was sitting here in an enormous amount of pain in the neck and back and could not take one more minute. I work in an office and sit in a chair for 10 hours a day, for the past 10 years and it was becoming increasing uncomfortable to raise my arms. I have tried other massagers that did not do a thing for me so I was fully expecting to return it. I took the plunge and ordered it.

The first time I used it, I felt like someone was punching me in the back and it was a bit painful. As soon as it stopped, the pain was lessened. The next day, I could move my arm a little easier. I use it every other day now and seeing some resutlts. I have a long way to go, especially building up my core muscles, but this massager has helped me immensely.

As a 52 old, smaller woman, I do have to warn that it is a very strong machine. Smaller people should not turn the power up too much at first. Start easy and increase with time. I would not use this if I had Osteoperosis! Good purchase for me, but you may want to check with your doctor if you have brittle bones. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Love This! Review by Lori C.
Product Rating
I researched long and hard before purchasing this product. If you suffer from sore neck and shoulders - buy this massager. Some of he reviews for this said it "pounds" and massages too hard. I'm a petite female and I highly recommend this. It's the only thing I've found that gets the deep tissue and soreness. One thing I love about this massager rather than others (other than it being highly well made and a quality product) is the place it has for your hands. So comfortable - and it allows you to move the massager up and down your back. I tried other massagers in stores and they did not have this feature. They were awkward because there was no comfortable place to put your hands and you sort of had to hang onto straps. I use this every day and after every session I feel so much better. Aaaahhhhhh!

Super intense, great product Review by MS
Product Rating
I have degenerative spine disease with a lot of neck and shoulder pain. This device has stronger massage action than the massage chairs at my chiropractor's office. My only complaint is the instructions are not all that clear on how to use all of the settings, and, there is no adjustment to control the amount of heat. I would not mind more heat. My husband says the noise from it is annoying but I don't mind because the massage action hurts so good! This massager really attacks trigger points. Worth every penny and you can use it on a variety of body parts. (Posted on 1/21/14)

This is a very good massage pad that come with a heating function. I bought this item in the winter time. After a cold and hard working day my shoulder get stiff and is nice to have a massage and warm up the body at the same time.

Every time I went to a Chiropractors they always do a warm up for the body before any massage. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Has made such a difference Review by Richard Daniels
Product Rating
As a polio survivor with weak legs, I use my upper body, particularly my shoulders, much more than the ""average"" person. In addition, I work in front of a computer all day, so that probably hasn't helped things any.

I didn't realize it at the time, but overuse of my shoulders was causing me chronic pain which manifested itself in unrestful sleep. Every morning, I would wake up feeling like I ran a marathon.

I actually started out with another product that helped somewhat, but was hard to position to really get to the affected areas. What I read about this product intrigued me. There were so many comments about how hard this massager pounded you. A few people did not like this aspect, and I can understand why. But the great majority of the commenters raved about the benefits received, so I went ahead and ordered.

I totally love this product. It has made such a big difference. I use it 2 or 3 times a day and my sleep is much more restful. I think if you are a frail person, this might not be for you, but otherwise, I would highly recommend it. The design is outstanding, especially with the pockets, and it seems to be well-made from quality materials. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Best Massager/Best Customer Service Review by Michelle Jones
Product Rating
The ZMA-08 is the best deep tissue massager we have ever had! After about 1.5 months, however, the massager stopped working on the right side. We contacted Zyllion through their website and after a bit of correspondence the sales manager wrote me directly, apologized for any inconvenience, and sent a new unit free of charge. He said we didn't even have to return the defective one, so no hassle for us! I'm completely satisfied with the quality of their products and the customer service Zyllion provides. My aunt with migraine problems says the ZMA-08 is the best massager she has had as well. I would recommend their products to everyone! (Posted on 1/21/14)

Sounds like my wife is getting punched in the back by a bear Review by Logan P
Product Rating
This thing came in as one of my wifes anniversary gifts. she has chronic shoulder nerve pain on one side, and the absolute only thing that helps her out is getting an intensely hard massage. so, after my fingers and hands were ground to stumps from the repeated massages, i had to find a solution. this is it! it is amazing, rubs super deep, and on top of it all, has heat that helps relax her. I opened it up and set it up for her, and within 5 minutes on the auto mode w heat, she was unconscious. Side Note: This thing is intense! if you dont like a hard massage, its not for you. for example, i gave it a shot, and after turning it on, i had to have my friend pull it off of me as i laid almost helpless on the floor as it beat the crap out of my back. but, for those seeking that 200 pound burly Swedish man vice grip hands deep tissue massage, look no further. this thing rocks!

Works really well! Review by DMack "DMack"
Product Rating is absolutely a "thump" massage, not a vibrating massage. It's like someone is doing fast judo chops. The lower settings are fairly mild and I would think anyone would enjoy them. The higher settings (which I prefer) really beat the crap out of ya. In a good way! It's very effective for the long standing knots I've had in my neck, shoulders and shoulder blades. Its pain that I've been dealing with for 4 years from multiple auto accidents. I just wish I had ordered this item sooner. Even my massage therapist can't work me over like this without hurting herself trying. I highly recommend this item. I hope it stands the test of time. Oh, the heat feature is nice too.

Love It! Review by Danette Halloran
Product Rating
The Zyllion ZMA-08 is the first massage device I have used that gets the knots out of my back. Yes, it pounds your back hard but this is why it works and this is the feature I LOVE about it. Before I bought the Zyllion I would have to sleep on a baseball positioned exactly under my knots to loosen them during the night. Now between the heat and the pounding massage my back has stayed loose and knot free! No more sleeping on a baseball! I LOVE this product and would recommend it to anyone who get knots in their back. Their customer service is worth noting too, the company actually sent me am email to make sure I was satisfied with their product. Love that too! (Posted on 1/21/14)
Excellent for tight-notty-stiff shoulders Review by T. Clay
Product Rating
After researching a ton of other neck and shoulder massager's, I decided to go with this one after so many positive reviews. Let me just say, I LOVE this product! I use it just about once a day. If you are sensitive to strong pressure and don't like pounding....this product is NOT for you. Even though there are multiple settings to adjust the pounding, it's still strong. I prefer strong pressure and pounding, so that's why I love this product. The massager does not massage in the typical thinking of going around and around and up and down. It really POUNDS you. I love the heat feature on this product as well. You can activate the heat without the massager engaged. This product is heavy duty, not light and flimsy. I've only used this product on my shoulders, but I can see how it would be beneficial to use on maybe your gluts or quads or maybe the light setting on your back.
Hands down......this product is AWESOME! (Posted on 1/21/14)
2 thumbs up!! Waaayyyy up!! Review by Mike J "Mike"
Product Rating
Wow! After a good workout session, this thing is god sent. For those who complains about being too strong you can adjust it down to level one. for me level 8 or 9 is perfect. just to give you a idea. I'm 5'11 190 lbs, and its perfect for me. When you set it at level 7 or higher it feels like a midget jabbing at you. it. BTW, I have tried the one in Brookstone and this one blows it out of the water. (Posted on 1/21/14)

I love this massager for my sore neck and shoulder muscles. The heat and percussion massager relaxes my muscles to help provide pain relief to perform all the activities I need to daily and to help me with my job.

I recommend this product to everyone and Don't worry about the percussion being too strong because the speed is adjustable to accommodate each person individually. (Posted on 1/21/14)
A Godsend Review by Wes Johnson
Product Rating
I love this product. I had initially purchased the ZMA-05, but it didn't work out. I returned that model it and upgraded to the ZMA-08. Upgrading was a great decision. The thumping massage is more manageable with the 08, it can be hard or soft, depending upon your needs, and sometimes I just use it for the heat. I have stiff back muscles and a tricky rotator cuff, and the ZMA-08 does the trick. I took it to a friend's house this past weekend, and they immediately went to purchase their own. If you are looking for a simple, easy, vibrating massage, this may not be your cup of tea. But if you like a deep tissue massage that leaves your back and neck feeling lighter and relieved of tension, you won't be disappointed (Posted on 1/21/14)

SIMPLY THE BEST!! Review by Dee T.
Product Rating
ZYLLION is how I spell relief....I have chronic neck and lower back pains on a daily basis. This massager helps me immensely. I start it at a low setting and increase it gradually during the program cycle, first concentrating on my neck then lower back. This gives me pain free relief for many days at a time. I have tried countless electronic massagers, ice packs, patches and creams over the past several years and FINALLY found something that satisfies my aches and pains. In addition, Zyllion is a very customer service oriented company. I had questions and received immediate responses from their staff. Paul was especially helpful and such a pleasure to deal with. He is CUSTOMER SERVICE EXCELLENCE and definitely a 5 star Seller. I highly recommend this massager for those who suffer with degenerative disc disease and sciatica pain as I do. Excellent pricing and delivery was spot on! Thank you so very much.... (Posted on 1/21/14)

The best massager I have ever owned Review by N. Mueller
Product Rating
I bought this for my husband on our anniversary and ended up keeping it for myself (although I will share it with him, if he asks nicely :).

I was pregnant at the time and suffering from a great deal of lower back and hip pain. I didn't want to take pain medications and this was the only way that I could get any relief. The flexibility of this device allowed me to position it exactly where I needed it to be. With the heat and all of the different settings, I was able to make myself so much more comfortable. I can't imagine getting through my last two trimesters without it.

It does have a strong pounding rhythm, so if you prefer something gentler, this may not be for you. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Great Value & Quality! Review by Tommy S
Product Rating
I ordered this one from Zyllion after seeing similar products @ Brookstone and what not. And I have to say, the quality of the product far surpassed my expectation!

I initially got it as a gift for a friend in her 50's... She loved it so much that she's getting another one for her family!

The customer service from Zyllion also went very smoothly. Because it was a gift, I wanted to make sure that it arrived on time--- And less than 2~3 hours I wrote to the service representative an e-mail, I received a response with a precise delivery estimate. In fact, they even followed up with me on the day of delivery to make sure that it arrived.

All in all... This is a 10 out of 10 and I'll purchase more products from them in the future." (Posted on 1/21/14)

Better than Brookstone! Review by Marie
Product Rating
I have suffered with severe upper back tension that causes sharp pain down my arms for the past five years. Medication helps but a good massage is the only way to get to ease the knots I feel in certain areas. I have used the Brookstone shoulder massager for the past 2 years and to my dismay, the motor burned out recently. When I went and googled to order another one, I noticed the Zyllion had pockets. Since the only complaint I had with the Brookstone was that the straps bothered my arthritic hands, I decided to give it a try. I am glad I did! I love it! It has more settings, and the rhythm changes, which I find helpful and soothing. I keep my hands in the pockets to move it around to hit the spots just right. For the customers who complain it is too strong, their issues may not be severe enough to find this helpful. It is a great sense of relief to me, and I am 58 years old, 5'2', and weigh 120. I start with the lowest setting and increase as needed. I love it! (Posted on 1/21/14)

This Zyllion massager is effective and very well made. The pocket feature makes it easy to manipulate and there are many massage intensity levels but the default level "3" is perfect in my case. Although it's described as a neck and shoulder massager I have no trouble using it to help alleviate lower back pain. The instruction sheet shows many ways of using the unit. Highly recommended. One of those products that is fully worth the money. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Great product and great service Review by SLR
Product Rating
compared reviews on a lot of different products and settled on the Zyllion Neck and Shoulder Massager with Heat. It really works well for massaging neck and shoulders or anywhere else you need to loosen up your aching muscles.

I especially like the heat option and the wide variety of different massage rhythms. The controls are simple and easy. The unique shape of the unit makes it easy to position wherever you need your massage.

The impact of the massage strokes is forceful as a number of reviewers report, but not overly so. I set mine on 3 or 4 (out of 10) for most massaging, but I'm glad that I can really crank it up to 8 or 10 for stubborn aches in my lower back. If you are wearing thin clothing the force of the impacts might be a bit uncomfortable on the lower vertebrae of the neck where the bones are pretty near the surface, but come on, folks! Just drape a towel over the area first and there's no problem at all. (If you're a really sissy, you can even double the towel!) I personally wear a sweatshirt and never have to bother with any extra padding at all.

I also have to say that Zyllion customer service is one of the most trouble-free and customer-oriented that I have ever dealt with. After a few months, my unit developed a slight rattle like some minor internal part might have worked loose. When I contacted Zyllion, instead of the usual third-degree and RMA rigmarole, they just said, ""Send it back and we'll send out a new unit to you right away."" It doesn't get any easier than that!

Best massager ever Review by M. Cassin "Cruella-1"
Product Rating
This has been one of my best purchases ever. I developed tendonitis very bad in my arm and shoulder from working on the PC too much and this machine eventually cured it. I was in alot pain before I bought it and it was such a relief from the 1st day I received it. This unit really offers pain relief! Yes, it is a strong thumping message, but that is what you need if you want to get rid of pain. It really works out the stressed out, painful muscles

The only thing, is that is it doesn't get up to your neck very well (it was too big). I had to buy a separate massager for my neck

When you first plug it in, it will give one hard ""thump"" so I don't put it on until after I plug it in and it takes care of that problem

It is heavy, but it really needs to be to make the best contact. If you you looking for just a gentle message, then this may not be for you. But if you are looking for something to really work out the knots and relive pain, especially in your shoulders, this massager is your best bet. This unit is pure relief! I love it (Posted on 1/21/14)
Much cheaper than physical therapy Review by Pam Macnab

I work at a computer all day & had been experiencing pain in my right shoulder. Saw this massager & decided to try it. LOVE IT!! I leave it at work & try to use it twice a day. Can continue to work while using it (using it right now in fact) & feel so much better when it's through. Saw that some people thought the massaging was too hard, but you can adjust the level. I leave it on automatic so I get all the variations - feels sooo good. Still get twinges in my shoulder, but not nearly as bad. I would highly recommend this for anyone who has shoulder problems. I always feel so much better after I use it. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Yowza! It's hard to believe the power this thing puts out! Review by Kansas Girl "Kansas Girl"
Product Rating
I love it! A person would have to be super sensitive for the first level to be too hard....however, 5 and beyond is more than I can handle. I like my professional massages to be very deep tissue. So much that I should be sore the next day. This machine is perfect for me. If you don't enjoy deep massage, I wouldn't purchase. Quality is excellent and seems like a product I would expect to pay more for. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Best Massager Ever! Review by John D. Tippetts
Product Rating
This massager is incredible! it's made to go over the shoulder (as in the picture) to massage your neck and back. You can pretty much use if for your legs or anywhere. The different settings allow for a mild or very aggressive massage. I gave it to my wife for Christmas, but I think I've used it as much as she has. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Serious Machine Review by jim mason

I have gone for years for deep tissue massages. And this machine has replaced that. I no longer have to wait for appts. Thanks for a serious machine that will do some real beating. Hard to believe this can produce so much power, but it does. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Many complain that it's too rough. Review by Jesse Armitage "trickypirana"
Product Rating
But you can adjust everything. Really feels like someone is behind you working their thumbs into your neck muscles. Bought it for my wife and she loves it. I've used it and it's fantastic. I don't know why anyone just wouldn't turn the intensity down if they had a problem with it. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Hits HARD! Review by Sommer Cronck
Product Rating
Works well, but is pretty strong. Even on the lowest setting, it sometimes pounds on my back so hard I have to stop it! My husband really likes it and the force doesn't bother him. Wish it could be left plugged in and then turned completely off, but you have to unplug it to totally shut off the power to it. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Works exactly as described Review by Terry
Product Rating
I've tried similar products over the years but found most to be weak in providing any real relief for my stiff and tense shoulders, neck and back. The Zyllion ZMA-08 definitely works for me. While it may be too aggressive for some I found it to be just what I've been needing. This device thumps quite hard on my old sore body when I need it to. I would have given it 5 stars if only rating it for myself but my wife like some other reviewers would appreciate a more gentler setting. She does however use it regularly. Be advised this thing isn't for delicate creatures. (Posted on 1/21/14)
Has lots of power, Review by S. Skolout
Product Rating
I picked this up because the one I had before wasn't doing the trick. This shoulder massager has some power for sure! I use it almost daily and I usually never go past 4 on the settings. It goes up to 10 and it will beat you really good it scares the dog when you turn it way up! I have had it for over a month and I think it works really nice! (Posted on 1/21/14)
Good massager provided you like hard pressure Review by Mac
Product Rating
I read many of the reviews of different massagers and the only negative thing that was mentioned on this one is how hard it pounds on you so I decided to give it a try. I am a women and I have to admit the first time I used it, even on the lowest setting, I was surprised at how hard it pounds on you. Fortunately, the hard pounding is the only way to get my tight muscles to loosen up and I can handle it. I do think the company should consider having the lower setting be less intense especially since it has 10 settings. On setting 5 it would probably start fracturing my bones. So if you are someone who cannot handle hard type massage I would advise you not to get it. It works for me but not for everyone. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Po-po-power! Good massager with strength. Smells funny when heat is on. Review by Jack
Product Rating
The massager is great. It actually has quite a bit of power so I'm satisfied.
The only downside is that when you turn the heat on you can actually smell plastic within like a minute. It's not the most pleasing smell so I leant not to use that function altogether. (Posted on 1/21/14)
heat is useless. Review by Miles Matsui

Powerful and effective Review by Jande

I bought this for my husband who has problems with neck pain. After using it for a few days his pain seemed to be diminished. His muscles get very tight and the massager really softens up the muscles, it's extremely powerful (like a masseuse pounding on your back). (Posted on 1/20/14)

Too intense for a small female Review by Bajeana Nebrat
Product Rating
I was very much looking forward to this product based on the reviews, but when I tried it on the smallest setting (setting 1) it was way too intense for me and felt like someone was punching me in the shoulders! Perhaps this has something to do with me being 5'2" and 122 pounds, but I have been struggling with upper body tension for quite some time and was really looking forward to some relief. I will definitely say that this gadget is powerful and doesn't mess around! I'm glad it has helped people. Also I may prefer a non-tapping sensation (more like a gliding) around my shoulder area rather than a tapping (or in my case with the Zyllion, a punching!). Sorry Zyllion! Perhaps you could consider adding even lower settings to your product? (Posted on 1/20/14)
Tapping? This is pounding! Review by Manifesta
Product Rating
I think it's a good product, and well made, but I have to agree with Bajeana Nebrat. I'm also a small woman, and I found even the lowest level too hard. I think it's a misrepresentation to say this uses a "tapping" motion: I would call it a "pounding" motion. What's more, it wasn't hitting the place where I really needed massage--the sides of my neck--because it was too large and bulky to wrap that close to me. I'm disappointed to say that it's definitely not for a smaller person. (Posted on 1/20/14)
Massage was too strong Review by Finfan
Product Rating
Ordered this for my wife who has been experiencing some neck tension on and off. I read a lot of the reviews and thought this would meet her needs. I do believe it is a good product, it's just not what my wife needed.

The product arrived on time and packaged well. After opening the product, I tried it myself and thought it was easy to use. The hand pockets in front are an easy way to may adjustments and comfortable to relax your arms instead of holding something in place. The device warms to about 131 degrees according to the instructions. The massage is strong but only a ""hammering"" type massage that hits the shoulder muscles on the right and left side of the neck. You can adjust the rhythm of the hammering.

I knew right away that the massage would be too strong for my wife. As soon as she tried it, she said she didn't like it and took it off. She tried it again as she got over the initial shock but still felt the massage was too strong. She felt like she was getting punched in the shoulders and it hurt.

Overall, it's a well made product and does what it describes. It just wasn't what we needed. (Posted on 1/20/14)
not for relaxing Review by ke "kimmishere2"
Product Rating
This product is very forceful. It will literally beat you. I decided to keep it because it will work out soreness, but it is not something you would want to massage you. It is shocking how hard it hits when you first turn it on, and if you are small boned, be careful. (Posted on 1/20/14)
Very Strong Massage Review by Lea
Product Rating
I bought this massager as a gift for a friend who gets tension headaches and back and neck pain from being at a computer all day. I really liked the design of this product and after reading the reviews I thought it would work well for her. It would have except there is only one level of intensity in the massage- HARD! You can adjust how fast it massages but you can't change the pressure and it is very strong. It really does feel like someone hitting you. If you like very powerful massage this product is perfect for you. However, if you bruise easily or prefer a gentler massage this device won't work for you. I'm returning the one I bought and getting my friend something else.

Not too heavy but too hard! Review by D. Boatman
Product Rating
I first off have to say how much I love Zyllion, Inc and would purchase almost anything from them! They have great customer service and that is really the only reason I am doing a review...just to let people know this! This particular product would be great if you like deeper, harder (really a beating!) massages but its not for me. But it didnt make me feel as though I had an actual masseuse sitting on my shoulders as other products have so not terrible. (Posted on 1/20/14)
Ok, but has flaws! Review by Jeri Lynn "Jeri Lynn"
Product Rating
Firstly, there is no on/off button on this unit so you have to unplug it which seems rather strange. I like the massage on the lowest level, but as others have commented, it's very strong and I can see how it could be very painful for those not used to such a hard pounding. The heat is barely lukewarm. Lastly, it's overpriced. I would not recommend this product. (Posted on 1/20/14)

Gives me a headache!! Review by Nanci
Product Rating
I ordered this massager after reading all the good reviews however, I wish it would do something else but rattle my brains. maybe if it had other options like a rolling massage it would be better but this constant banging is giving me a headache. Also the heat is absolutely useless. All I get is a hot chest and no heat where it should be. I have severe muscle tightness, spasms and aches in the shoulders, scapulas, neck and both hips and I thought this would contraption would help but I don't think it is doing much except rattling my brains. I put it on several different settings and find that 1-2 is not strong enough and anything over 3 does major damage to my head.
I don't know if I am keeping it. I bought it for much more and now I see it's being sold at a much cheaper price. maybe I can return it and re-order it.
If anyone can offer some advice on how to properly work this massager and get the benefits to this lady who desperately needs help in breaking up knots, trigger points and severe muscle pain, I would appreciate it so much. Thanks. (Posted on 1/20/14)
Vs the Brookstone iNeed Percussion Massager Review by Chupalover22
Product Rating
I liked the Brookstone massager so much at the store that I came to zyllion looking for a cheaper alternative. This massager is like the Brookstone massager on steroids. It is much more powerful and heavier. The biggest two things that I noticed were that the percussion balls in the Brookstone massager are closer together and probably better suited for a smaller individual. Whereas the Brookstone massager's percussions are lighter, they can be quicker, while the Zyllion massager is more of a ""brute"" and really pound on your back. You can tell just by looking at the shipping weight. This massager is about twice the weight of the Brookstone massager. I really like this one, but if you don't usually like hard massages, I'd probably go with the Brookstone massager.

My biggest cons about this are:
1. when you plug this in the massager seems to give a quick pound that can startle you;
2. the percussion balls are placed a tad too far apart for any meaningful neck massage (I have a 17"" neck so it's not like my neck is skinny) - perfect to massage the traps though;
3. you can't lean back on your couch with this in between you - seems to keep the massager from having the clearance to do its thing;
4. even when you don't turn the heat on, this gets kind of hot;
5. the off button isn't really an off button - you can still feel the electricity generating heat onto the massager and the status screen stays on, so you really have to unplug this after every use.

Conclusion - I still like this for its brute force and ability to get the knots out. The Brookstone massager is more delicate and also feels good though. (Posted on 1/20/14)
Great massager! Review by Addy
Product Rating
I've owned my Zyllion neck and shoulder massager for the last month and have really enjoyed this product! My work requires me to be sitting for the majority of the day. As a result, my neck and shoulder area tends to be very tense and sore. I was thinking of investing in a massager for quite a while and was doing a lot of research online comparing many different brands and functions. I was a bit skeptical at first about Zyllion's massager and actually wrote a few emails inquiring them about the features/functions of their product. Zyllion's customer service was top-notch. They responded promptly, professionally, and addressed my questions with satisfactory answers. I also purchased their Hot Pot handheld personal massager because it is just so cute and convenient. I keep my neck and shoulder massager in my office. I really like their auto shut-off after 15 minutes. I used this function as my "mini breaks" throughout my workday, in a way forcing me to relax and attend to myself. I also like the varied power settings. I find that I usually start with 3 and then gradually increase to 4 or 5. 5 and 6 work well for me for lower back and thigh areas. The hand pockets are fabulous! In my opinion, the ultra comfy hand pockets really stood out for me among other brands. The heating option is nice too and help relax my arms. I highly recommend this product and am planning to purchase another to keep at home! (Posted on 1/20/14)
best of the bunch Review by Wayne
Product Rating
I'm comparing the Zyllion zma-08, Zyllion zma-05, and the Iliving ILG-916. I'm not certain but I'd ventured to guess that the zma-05 was the previous generation model to the zma-08. The zma-05 doesn't have the heat function. It also starts up when powered on to the strength setting of 5 which packs a *startling* punch. It will startle you. The zma-08 starts out at a strength setting of 3 which is much more manageable. It's curious why they don't start out at 0 or 1. The heat setting is a nice touch and appreciated.

I tested the iLiving for a moment. It's not nearly as padded as the Zyllion. From the exterior it doesn't feel as well made as the Zyllion by a far margin. It does power up on either 0 or 1. I do think the thumping patterns are also quite nice. But I couldn't get over the esthetics along with the comfort factor of the well-padded Zyllion. (Posted on 1/20/14)
Works Great! Review by T. Wilson
Product Rating
This device is awesome. It's actually pretty large but easy to hold. The different attachments are definitely a plus if you want to pinpoint certain areas. The cord is a little short but not something I would consider a drawback. An extension cord would fix that right up. Other than that, it's well designed and powerful enough to get the job done. Would recommend this to anyone. (Posted on 1/16/14)

Real vigorous massage but heat could be better Review by Roger in Virginia
Product Rating
I felt the massage was vigorous and I liked the intensity could be adjusted up or down and there are many variations in the massage tapping. This is like the ole karate chop type massage rather than a hand rub massage so start at low setting. The first unit I got the heating function did not do much, seller had me ship it back and sent a new one, it works much better but would have liked it if the back unit produced more heat, the heat comes from the shoulder straps in the front mostly. I use it on my back, lower back, shoulders and even hips when sore. (Posted on 1/15/14)

glad i bought this one instead of the other guy! Review by K. Li

"last time i went to costco, they have the ""neck and shoulder massager"" (different brand) on demo for you to try it out. where i work, i get sore neck and shoulder pretty often; a neck and shoulder massager helps alot! i'm glad i didn't buy the one that is selling on costco (differnt brand)! that one will shut off automatically after 5 minuets! what can you do in 5 minutes? also i asked the guy showing the demo, he said it has 4 setting (only!).

this Zyllion massager automatically shut off in 15 minutes (much better!). it also has a LED display that show what setting you on (setting 1 to 10)! (the one on costco has NO LED, so it' hard to tell what setting you on!)" (Posted on 1/15/14)
A must buy! Review by YouGene

This Zyllion product is perfect! I have tried a fair share of different brands and styles of neck massagers. The pockets for hand placement is genius and far better then straps that other brands use to hold massager in place. The power of this product is so dynamic, to your liking it can go from soft to very strong. I must also commend Zyllion on their client service. I contacted them prior to purchase and they were so helpful and client focused. No doubt, everyone should give this product a try! (Posted on 1/15/14)
