To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Happy with the product. Works great. fast shipping. I emailed the seller asking for faster delivery. They were really friendly and made it happen! It makes a little squeaking sound sometimes when it is pushed againt you which makes me slightly nervous but a lot of reviews say they get replaced easily by the seller if any problems occur. So I'm not too worried. Great customer service offsets this minor complaint about the product.
I don’t normally write reviews but this massagers is amazing. I did not expect it to be this good. Feels like an actual massage but better because I can move it to target spots I know are sore. Well worth the money. Very happy customer
The Resteck massager is fantastic. I purchased it a month ago & have used it almost everyday. I have neck & back pain and this massager has been super at relieving the tension. I also have migraines & use the massager very lightly on my scalp-it is amazing how good it feels. I did a lot of research before purchasing it and chose this massager because: -the quality was excellent for a reasonable price -it included a nice duffel bag -came with a car adapter -has a sleek appearance -has 3 speed/intensity levels -I liked the soft fabric that covered the massaging nodes I’m so pleased with the Resteck that I plan on purchasing it again as gifts. I highly recommend Resteck.
After years of chronic neck pain and trying physical therapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy with little lasting benefit, this item finally has me sleeping soundly.
Plusses: 1) You control exactly where it applies pressure and how much pressure it applies, so unlike human massage therapists, it doesn't move off the spot you need worked, doesn't push too hard or too soft, and doesn't get tired from deep kneading. 2) The price is less than one session with a massage therapist (at least around me), so the return on investment is instant. So far I've used it upwards of 50 times and it's still working like new, and each session with it has helped me more than a session with any of the massage therapists I tried, so the cost/benefit ratio is amazing. 3) It's super versatile: I've used it to massage my neck mainly, but also upper back, mid back and lower back and it was just as good for all of those. 4) The construction is sturdy and the materials are good quality.
Minuses: 1) You apply pressure to your back/neck by using your chest/arm muscles to pull the balls forward. It works great for me but it's not as relaxing as lying on a table doing nothing while you get a massage. You can also put it between a chair back and your neck/back and lean into it, which removes the need to pull with your chest/arm muscles, but makes it a little harder to control exactly where the balls go.
FYIs: 1) When you put very heavy pressure on, the motors do slow down a lot and struggle to keep going. This is not surprising -- the balls are just driven by moderate size electric motors which can only provide so much torque. But at first this made me think I could not put on too much pressure for fear of overloading the motor. But over time I've gotten more aggressive with how much pressure I use, and as I said, it's still working fine after ~50 uses. 2) Be careful putting too much pressure on the balls against areas without much muscle cover. I pulled too hard against my upper neck and actually ended up with a bruise on my skull, but that was entirely my fault, not the massager's. The massager has hard rotating balls -- if you press hard plastic into your bone you'll get a bruise, lol.
Im a huge fan of massages. I spend a lot of money and time on them every month, but since buying this product, I have found myself going less. When I feel the need to go after a stressful day, I find myself thinking...I can use my new massager when I get home. No joke. Of course, nothing can replace the experience of a personal massage, but I this massager gets all the stress-day knots out. I am definitely getting a second to leave at work. And I’m getting them as gifts. The product is definitely quality made. You won’t regret the purchase. I don’t do a lot do reviews, but this product and the personal touch and correspondence from the small business developer, is definitely something I want to support.
As someone who has chronic neck and upper back tension, I wanted to look into a kind of massager that would both be effective and fairly priced. This product is definitely both of these, I promise you as someone who recently purchased this.
It gives you the option of using heat, but you can also turn off the heat option (as someone who goes to a chiropractor that says to steer clear from any form of dry heat), which was a big plus for me and something I had to be sure of before purchasing.
The massaging has two types, and both have two options in intensity - light or deep with the massaging. And it certainly does the job for me, especially after a stressful day of work! Really works at my tension!
If you like getting a massage but also don't want to fork over a hundred or two hundred dollars at a spa, this is a good alternative that feels just as much like a deep tissue massage at the spa! I know it will definitely be saving me some money, that's for sure.
Bottom Line: Love it, and I highly recommend buying!
And the least we as customers can do is leave a review for such a great product (and no, I wasn't paid to write this review. 100% genuine review!)
Very happy with my purchase. My boyfriend is beyond thrilled with it. I have used a few different neck massagers before, and this is my favorite. I have bad pain and numbness in my back and neck from having a desk job. This is the first one that has really helped relieve the tension.
The handles have helped more than I thought they would in being able to get a full back massage. It has multiple modes and speeds, and you can turn the heat off and on depending on what you want. I also love that it comes with a car charger and carrying bag. I plan on purchasing at least 2 more as gifts.
