Konjac Neck Shoulder Massager with Arm Straps

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Using a massager at home is a lot cheaper than getting a professional massage and equally beneficial when getting the right massager for the purpose.
Take for instance, the Konjac Shiatsu neck shoulder massager with arm straps and its rather peculiar design mimicking a pair of hugging arms wrapping around you!
The Konjac Shiatsu massager may look awkward but it is more versatile compared to the shiatsu massager chair pad and shiatsu back massager, and pretty stylish too with the denim fabric finish on it!
The Konjac Shiatsu massager is also lightweight and compact, weighing 1.9kg with a 3ft long wingspan length which is long enough to hug around your body.
As mentioned earlier, getting the right massager for the purpose is key. In the case of the Konjac shiatsu neck massager with arm straps, its design make it ideal for neck and upper body.
In fact, you can really get a proper neck massage and get a better job done overall than with a massage seat pad because you can manually position the Konjac neck massager right at the top and bottom of your neck and shoulders.
The massage sensation is a deep circular thumb massage which you can intensify by using the arm loops to pull down on the kneading nods to make the massage feel deeper (great after a long day sitting at work sitting on a chair).

As far as noise, the Konjac neck massager with arm straps makes a low noise level like a gentle whirring/buzzing vibration which is actually soothing too. The noise doesn't disturb you nor does it disturb anyone else when using it while watching TV or having a conversation.
The Konjac neck massager is versatile too as you can move it around to any part of the body such as hips, legs and lower back thanks to the velcro hook-and-loop fasteners on both arm holders which let you strap tightly the Konjac shiatsu massager.
The Konjac neck massager comes with three massage speed levels but no intensity setting. With that said, you can further increase the deep massaging pressure by pulling on the arm straps for a more vigorous, firm massage which works wonders particularly on tight, stressed muscles.
The Konjac neck massager is 95% covered with denim material aside from the actual massage area which contains 8 deep kneading nodes covered by see-through breathable mesh.
The kneading nodes rotate clockwise and anticlockwise, changing rotational direction automatically during the standard 20-minute cycle though you can also change kneading rotation manually by pressing the dedicated button. Talking about the massage cycle, it automatically shuts off when 20 minutes is up.
The kneading nodes also generate heat at the press of a button but you cannot apply heat unless the kneading nodes are operational. The heat is not very hot, more like a gently warming feeling but you can definitely feel the heat.
The Konjac shiatsu massager comes with a portable 12V/2A wall adapter and car charger that inserts inside the 12V socket (cigarette lighter).
the power cord is about 1-meter long and the cord needs to be plugged in whilst working
The Konjac shiatsu massager uses 24W of power so if you use it for 2 hours a day the total power consumption is 48W which converted to kilowatt hours equals 0.04kw/h (48/1000). 
To find out the actual money cost of running the Konjac neck massager, I simply multiply 0.04kw/h by my daily electricity rate which is 18.8kw/h which totals 0.75p a day (pretty cheap compared to an hour at your local massage parlour).
To figure out your daily electricity rate, grab your electricity bill and look up your yearly consumption. In my case, my yearly consumption is 6871.5 kWh so I simply divide that figure by 365 days which gives me 18.8kw/h.
The loop straps keep your arms comfortably during the massage but you don't have to keep your arms inside the arm straps to keep the Konjac wrap around massager from falling off.
In fact, if you're sitting in a comfortable chair with a suitable back the neck massager stays put around your neck so you don't have to put your arms through if you don't want to.
