A Guide To The Best Neck Massagers

An area where not all massage chair pads can reach is the neck, but fortunately neck massagers puts more focus on massaging the neck area and most models also allow you to massage other areas of the body too.  If you want to focus on only a small area with a choice of attachments then a handheld electric massager might also be a good option.

A typical neck massager is designed to comfortably sit on your neck, some models will also have armrest slots so you can put your arms through to pull the massager closer to your body. But of course not all neck massagers are designed the same as some will simply be in the shape of a pillow.

These electric neck massagers are powered by connecting it to the mains, so as long as you’re near a plug socket you can use your electric neck massager.  Unlike a massager chair you don’t necessarily have to be sitting on a chair or the sofa to use it, you can be sitting on the floor or on your bed.

 

How To Choose The Best Neck Massager

When you’re deciding upon which neck massager to buy, you should take into account the features and functions of what each one can do. Below we’ll go through a list of these features and functions:

Body parts massaged – Some neck massagers actually massage more body parts than a massage chair pad, this is due to its shape and portability which allows you to massage areas such as your lower legs and feet.  However due to the smaller size it can only massage a smaller area of the body at a time.

Other neck massagers will focus purely on just the neck but these neck massagers will usually be cheaper. If you’re looking to buy a neck massager that focuses on body parts such as your back then you may be better off buying a massage chair pad.

Armrest holder – The armrest holders are designed for you to hold the massager in place and a place for you to rest your arms.  Some of the slots may even be big enough for you to put most of your arm through to enable you to do other things such as use the computer. 

Auto shut off time – This is a safety feature which will automatically power off the device to prevent it from overheating and to ensure your muscles are not overworked by the massager.  The device however can be turned back shortly after.

Speed level settings – Some of the neck massagers may have different speed settings where you can make the speed of the mechanism work faster. 

Heat mode – Turn on heat mode during a massage to add heat to the massage.

Remote control – Only very few models will come with a remote control, as the controls will usually be located on the massager itself.

 

Neck Massager vs Massage Chair Pad

Both of these products work to achieve pretty much the same outcome, so we’ve compared the pros and cons of each one so you can decide which one is more suitable for you.

Neck massager pros:

  • With some models you can use it to massage most body parts.
  • Massages the neck muscles.
  • On average it’s a bit cheaper.
  • Can be used absolutely anywhere, as long as you’re near a plug socket.

Cons:

  • If you want to use it for body parts other than the neck, only a small surface area is covered.
  • Limited to only one type of massage.

Massage chair pad pros:

  • Can also massage the neck but these models are generally more expensive.
  • The whole back can be massaged.
  • Gives more options by offering different types of massages.
