  • What area of ​​the body is the product intended for? The widespread belief that “a pillow is only for the head and neck” is fundamentally wrong when it comes to a massager. This is a tool that is able to affect various parts of the body. Even though most of the models are universal, there are those that are specifically designed for a specific area.
  • Intended Place of Use: Home, Work, Travel, etc. The massage cushions work thanks to a built-in battery, which can be powered in different ways, depending on the model.
  • Desired result When choosing a pillow, they are guided by what kind of massage effect it has. There are models, the principle of which is shown in the fight against diseases and vice versa. Also, the functionality of some massagers has been expanded – their action can replace a session of going to a beauty salon.
  • The cost you are willing to pay There are a variety of pillows available in the medical and massage equipment market. The abundance of choice allows you to focus on exactly the option that will fully satisfy all requests, including financial ones. This is not a novelty in the world of massagers for a long time, so it will not be difficult to find a decent combination of price and quality.

Features and types of massagers

The versatility of massage pillows lies in the absence of restrictions regarding the area of ​​their use. Except for some models that are only intended for:

  • necks – have a special shape (similar to a curved collar);
  • backs – there is a strap with which you can attach the product to the work chair

In other cases, the massager has a rectangular shape, can be used for the waist, neck, buttocks, legs.

As a tool, massage cushions differ in the way they act:

  • Vibration massage – occurs due to the contact of vibrating mechanisms with a part of the body. It has a beneficial effect on the nervous and vascular system. Improves blood circulation, puts in order the work of the heart vessels. Contraindicated before going to bed, as vibration massage, although it allows the body to relax, but tones up and invigorates.
  • Roller – special mechanisms accelerate the circulation of lymph, relieve severity, joint pain. The number of clips may vary. Suitable for use on all parts of the body. It is not excluded that it can be used during the rehabilitation period after suffering serious illnesses, back injuries, spine.

Some models have an infrared heating function. This ability expands the functionality of the pillow, as the massager also becomes an excellent assistant in the fight against cellulite and other cosmetic defects.

Nuances of work

Another factor influencing the choice of pillow is the future place of use. The fact is that massagers differ from each other in the way they receive energy. They can work from:

  • Electrical networks. These devices usually have a built-in battery that charges like a mobile phone and is ready to use until the charge runs out. The second option is pillows that only work when plugged into an electrical outlet. There are few of them, but, nevertheless – if you plan to use the massager outside the home, be sure to pay attention.
  • Batteries. Not the most economical, but convenient option. No need to worry about the power outlet, just stock up on batteries and enjoy your massage wherever and whenever you want.

If you plan to “put” a massager pillow in the car, pay attention to whether it can be charged from the cigarette lighter. This function is convenient and will free you from unnecessary hassle (no need to carry it home to recharge).

There are also models that have a timer and a control panel. These are convenient for home relaxation treatments on the lower body and if the massage pillow is attached to the car seat. You can control the process, while not being distracted by organizational actions.

Medical contraindications

Even such a harmless “miracle unit” has its own contraindications. Using a massage pillow is not recommended:

  • with the course of inflammatory processes in the body;
  • in the presence of oncological diseases;
  • during pregnancy;
  • during an exacerbation of chronic diseases;
  • if you suffer from skin diseases;
  • with injuries of the limbs, back (unless treatment provides otherwise).

The fact is that the action of the drug can become a stimulus for the development of pathology. A session performed by a massage pillow is in no way inferior to a full session, for example, by a chiropractor. If the attending physician prohibits the use of the massager, select another option.

Care of the product

Taking care of your pillow is easy enough. Each model has a cover that can be removed and washed as it gets dirty. You can change it if you want. Please note that it is better to choose fabric covers than leather ones. They are more practical, easier to clean and cheaper.
