Naturalico Shiatsu Massager Review


I often work 10-12 hours at my job where I’m hunched over a computer all day and I end up with an aching back, neck, and shoulders.  I’m in the logistics industry and our trucks come equipped with massage chairs so I always joke that I would like to spend my lunch hour sitting in driver’s seat. My boss said, I was more than welcome to use the truck, but knowing how much I’m into freebies, he said why don’t you just try to get one free? So when I saw the Naturalico Shiatsu Massager on my favorite freebie site Tomoson, I was like “Bingo!” 

So let’s see how this works…

Naturalico Shiatso Massager


What exactly is a Shiatsu Massage?

According to Wikipedia: “In the Japanese language, shiatsu means “finger pressure”. Shiatsu techniques include massages with fingers, thumbs, feet and palms; assisted stretching; and joint manipulation and mobilization.

Shiatsu massage focuses on pressure points

Since Shiatsu focuses on pressure points, this type of massage is a little stronger and focuses on individual spots on the body to work out the kinks. For some, Shiatsu might be a little too rough. As for me, I don’t mind a little extra pressure. In my mind, that is how I know it’s working. Although it is not always the most pleasurable feeling, I like the idea that it is loosening up the knots on my back.

But while nothing beats the feeling of getting a real live massage, there is not always room in my budget for that. So that is where your own personal shiatsu massager can come in handy!

Different types of Home Massagers

There are lots of different electronic massagers on the market. They typically either vibrate, provide percussion (beating), rolling, or shiatsu. You can get a hand-held, pillow, foot, or chair massage. They also have a variety of features such as:

  1. Remote control
  2. Heat therapy
  3. Infrared therapy
  4. Air compression
  5. Rolling movement

Personally, I don’t really understand the purpose or benefit of a vibrating massage. They usually just tingle and make me rather itchy.


What makes the Naturalico Shiatsu Massager different?

The Naturalico Shiatsu Massager has some very nice features:

  • It contains special silicone and “nipple” shape massage heads which offer a smoother massage.
  • 4 deep kneading massage nodes
Naturalico Shiatsu massager has Advanced Heating Fuction with Auto-Shut off
Advanced Heating Function with Auto-Shut off
  • Advanced heating function which helps to soothe aching muscles
  • Overheat protection devices with a 20-min auto shut-off feature.
Control panel gives you choice of heat and direction

  • Multi-directional massage. It switches direction automatically unless you use the manual directional function.
  • Has a car cigarette lighter adapter so you can use it in your car.

My thoughts on the Naturalico Shiatsu Massager

Pros:

  1. I like that you can use it all over your body.
  2. It provides a deep massage and really gets into your nooks and crannies.
  3. The heat function is a nice touch.
  4. You can wrap it around your waist for hands free use on your lower back or simply drape it over your shoulders for upper back massage.

Cons:

  1. The electric cord is very short. This means you have to be sitting near an electrical outlet. Makes it a little inconvenient to be tethered to the cord.
  2. The pressure is a little too strong in certain areas. It really hurts when I use it on my neck and feet.
  3. It’s not all that light-weight. It’s a little bulky to take to the office.

Final thoughts

Overall I really like the Naturalico Shiatsu Massager. I whip it out anytime I feel stiff and sore and it feels great! I think this would make a really nice gift for a man or woman, or just get one for yourself!

You can find Naturalico Shiatsu Massager on Amazon for around $60.


What type of massage do you prefer? Do you prefer a deep touch or something a little gentler? Leave me a comment and let me know!

There's nothing like massage to soothe achy muscles, but sometimes there's no room in the budget. That's why the Naturalico Shiatsu Massager comes in handy!

    I love a good massage, especially as I have some slight back issues. This is right up my street. Love it!

  2. Wow! I love that this can be used in your car too! It looks so soothing for my back..

  3. I would try this out! I feel like I could always use a massage.

  4. I prefer a deep massage. Rarely had anything ever had too much pressure. I have shoulder issues daily because of the computer. This would be great for the days I can bribe my kids to rub my back.

  5. Teresa Kunberger Teresa Kunberger

    This pregnant momma so needs this!!!

  6. I could definitely do with one of these. I have not had a massage in over a year and would like to get something like this for at home.

  7. This is definitely something that I would use quite a bit. I sit down for 10 hours a day at work and when I come home I need a great massage not just a good one but a great one.

  8. terristeffes terristeffes

    I love massage! I used to go monthly but gave it up when we were trying to save money.

  9. Pam Pam

    I would love something like this. It would be great to have a massage like this after a long day at work. I especially love the heat feature.

  10. O my anything that will relieve my aches would be so welcome. Great review girly! Love the video you do such a great job sharing your take! #productreviewparty

  11. It’s a great way to allow yourself to relax without having to go to a spa. It’s definitely convenient to have especially if you’re a mom who works at home and can’t get out often to get yourself a massage.

  12. This looks like it would be so nice! I could defiantly use something like this in my life!

  13. Dana Vento Dana Vento

    This is very clever! Pampering yourself at home is better. I should try this.

  14. amandahrosson amandahrosson

    Oh wow, this looks amazing!! I wouldn’t mind having my own! 😀

  15. Beth Shankle Anderson Beth Shankle Anderson

    I love a good back massage. This sounds perfect! I want to try it!

  16. Veronica Veronica

    This sounds fantastic! And the product looks great!
    I still prefer the old school massage though!

  17. This looks awesome! Definitely something that I could use right about now! I have been trying to work a bit on self-care, and this would be perfect.

  18. Angela @marathonsandmotivation.com Angela @marathonsandmotivation.com

    Who couldn’t use a good massage? I think my favorite part about this is you can be multi-tasking while getting it…Love it!

  19. I find that I carry a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders (I’m still trying to figure out why that’s happening lately) and I BEG my kids to rub my back almost daily. This would be great for when they aren’t here or when they flat out refuse to help.

  20. This looks like the solution to my chronic shoulder and neck issues! Massages are so important to have on a regular basis!

  21. Anne Anne

    This sounds so nice! I haven’t had a massage in ages (years) and this looks like such a great solution to work stress. It seems so relaxing.

  22. That’s such a genius idea to receive a massage at work. It would make my days when I’m staring at data a lot more comfortable! I’m going to take a look on amazon lol.

  23. CourtneyLynne CourtneyLynne

    Omg this chair sounds like a total dream!!! I so need one in my life!!!

  24. With all the hunching I do over my laptop this would be a true back Heaven Send!

  25. I use a massager mainly for my neck and feet. Now, your massager puts mine to shame! LOL! #ProductReviewParty

I love hearing from you...
