If you have problems with your shoulders and are always asking your spouse for a massage, chances are the Naipo Shoulder Massager with Shiatsu Kneading Pillow might be a product that should be in your shopping cart.
Naipo sent over their Shoulder Massager for me to check out, and if there’s one gadget in my home that’s getting plenty of use other than my Amazon Fire Stick, it’s the Naipo Shoulder Massager. Arriving in a simple brown box, the Naipo Shoulder massager with Shiatsu Kneading is essentially my new “Groupon Massage in-a-box”, and now instead of paying $25 for a Groupon or LivingSocial massage, I can now simply plug in my massager and get straight to work on giving myself a massage. Here are some of the highlighted specs of the Naipo Shoulder Massager with Shiatsu Kneading Massage and Heat:
• Features 8 deep-kneading Shiatsu massage nodes to sooth tired, relieve muscle tightness.
• Built in advanced heat function transfers warmth to muscles, ligaments to improve the blood circulation.
• 3D rotation kneading massage rollers in ergonomic U-design perfect to use on your neck, back, shoulder.
• Can be used for office, vehicle and home, UL approved power adaptor and a FREE car charger are included. Removable dust proof bag, easy to clean.
• You can return your undamaged product and packaging within 30 days of purchase to receive a FULL REFUND for any reason. Were also offering 24-month for quality-related issues.

Featuring eight deep-kneading massage nodes, that Shiatsu Massager by Naipo glows a bright red when turned on, and with its 3D rotation rollers, you can get a quality massage in minutes just by simply sitting back on your couch, car or bedroom by plugging it up. At first, I wasn’t really a fan of having to plug in the Naipo because of how unwieldy the power adapter is. Naipo included a car adapter as well which works pretty well, but there are plenty of massagers at stores like Bed, Bath and Beyond that, you can purchase that are either battery operated, or just need to be charged up to use. I would rather prefer to have the Naipo come with the ability to use wirelessly so I do not have to sit close to an outlet in order to get an adequate massage.
One thing that was interesting to me about the Naipo Shiatsu Massager is the fact the company states that it has a built-in heater, however, I’ve been using every other day for the past three weeks, and not once has my device gotten hot, nor do I see an option to adjust it. This could certainly be an isolated case where I may have a defective unit but I don’t like warm massages natively so it’s not a really big thing. However, according to some reviews that I’ve read on Amazon, a few other people seem to be having this issue as well with not being able to get it to warm up at all.
While using the Naipo Shiatsu, I tend to use it for only 20 minutes at a time before the massager eventually times out on me and I have to press again to get it to restart. Twenty minutes is more than enough for my joints, but this is a personal preference but may vary according to the user. As someone who goes to the gym six days a week, on the days that I’m doing exercises involving my back and shoulders, I tend to use the Naipo more and more. I’m concerned that over time, the Naipo will eventually die out, and I’ll never know exactly what the issue is due to the fact that the massager has occasionally shut down on me without a moment’s notice.
So would I recommend the Naipo? If we’re just speaking in terms of price, for $59.99, you can’t really beat the price. Sure there are other, better massagers on the market, but with the Shiatsu Massager by Naipo simply works (when it works to be fair). It’s absolutely comfortable when wearing, regardless if you are a man or a woman. Some may be thrown off a bit by the fact you have to drape it over your shoulders in order to use, but it’s a practice that when implemented works like a charm, and my shoulders have never felt better post-workout than when I sit upright and use the massager. If there were things I could change, the obvious choice would be for it to be wireless and have the ability to have set times of how long you want it to go, be it 20 minutes, even up to an hour. But simply turning off automatically when it deems itself “finished” (especially for a device that must be plugged in) is a little off-putting.
