Sore Neck? This Neck Massage Pillow is the Best...
Like many busy moms, I am stressed almost all of the time. Unfortunately, I tend to carry all my stress in my neck, so it's constantly tight and sore. At least twice a week, I beg my super sweet husband to rub my neck. I guess he finally got sick of all the neck rubbing, because for Christmas he bought me this really cool neck massage pillow by Homedics.
I've got to admit, I was a little skeptical. I had a funny feeling that he was just trying to get out of our weekly neck massages and I didn't think any pillow could do as good of a job as he does - even when he isn't trying very hard.
Since it quickly became clear that the personal neck massages were over, or at least wouldn't be happening as frequently, I plugged in my neck massage pillow and settled in to see what would happen.
I've got to admit, I was pleasently surprised. I'd still prefer that my husband massage my neck for me - and that he'd do it for hours on end - because, let's face it, I can't tell my pillow to move a little to the right. But, overall, it's a pretty amazing invention.
It has two ball type contraptions that move around in a circle and put pressure on muscles in the neck. It gets the area where I feel pain quite well and leaves my neck and shoulders feeling much looser and more relaxed.
I really enjoy the heat feature that it has - my husband can't heat his hands up!
It's marketed as a neck massage pillow, but can easily be used on other part of the back. My husband has a lot of pain in his lower back, and he loves it. You only need to move it around your back to get different areas where you feel pain.
I frequently use mine after a long day or when I'm falling asleep at night. Check out the HoMedics Neck Massage Pillow. They run about $50 and in my opinion, are well worth every penny spent!
