No doubt that a trip to a spa is a temporary respite to relax as experienced massage therapists work their magic to relieve your sore muscles and backaches.
But visiting a spa frequently can be burdensome for most people. Plus, what if you are at home or the office and need an instant massage without calling for an appointment to book a slot?
This is where portable massagers come in handy. They are light and easy to operate, even though they are no match to the human touch of a skilled massager. From the pillow-like kneading varieties to handheld and eye devices, we have rounded up 7 Portable Massagers To Relax Anytime, Anywhere.
1) Gintell G-Minnie EZ Portable Kneading Massager
This reasonably-priced portable massager from Gintell is compact and easy to carry. It features four kneading massage heads with 3D Shiatsu and even has a heating function. The 3D Shiatsu in question refers to the deep and circular pressure-point massage, which focuses on relieving stiff muscles or soreness. I love that it’s easy to use and versatile too. You can place it on top or below your office chair, with the latter can be doubled as your lumbar support. It also helps that it comes with an adjustable rear strap. You can use it for other body parts, namely as a foot massage or underneath your sore legs as you lay down on the couch.
2) OSIM uCozy 3D Portable Massager
Here’s another quality portable massager and this time, it’s from OSIM. The uCozy model sports an ergonomic design, complete with dual-directorial kneading functions designed to relieve muscle or body aches. You can use it for your lower back, neck, and legs. Perfect for those who are constantly in front of a laptop or gaming for long hours.
3) GINTELL G-Relax EZ Portable Handheld Massager
The first impression upon seeing the Gintell G-Relax EZ Portable Handheld Massager reminds me of a shower handle. Except for this one, it doesn’t shoot out water but gives you the convenience of a massage whenever you need it the most. It comes with 3 different massage heads, where you can simply interchange them and attach them one at a time to massage your neck, shoulder, back or even your legs. It’s adjustable too, covering from low to medium and high settings, depending on your preference. Finally, the Gintell G-Relax EZ Portable Handheld Massager is lightweight and ergonomically designed to make it easy to hold upon usage.
4) Ogawa Mobile Shiatsu Lite Back Massager
True to its name, the Ogawa Mobile Shiatsu Lite Back Massager is designed with the utmost convenience in mind. It’s compact and you can simply use it at home, office or even your car, thanks to its bundled car adapter. It features a striking blue design and has 4 massage heads, complete with a heat function. This helps to evenly massage your body, say your neck or your back in a circular, kneading motion. The Ogawa Mobile Shiatsu Lite Back Massager is also easy to operate, where you just need to plug in and press the switch button.
5) Gintell G-Petite Massage Cushion
Petite indeed, and it even comes with a handle for easy carrying. Simply plug in the power supply and turn on the power button. It has 8 massage heads in total with 3D Shiatsu and comes with a heat function too. The latter particularly comes in handy to promote blood circulation. It’s good for massaging your upper or lower back, neck, stomach and even your hands and calves due to fatigue or overuse.
6) SNOWFIT SnowArm+
Portable and lightweight, the SNOWFIT SnowArm+ sports an ergonomic design that makes it easier for you to navigate the device on your targeted area. Use it to massage your neck, calf, leg or your back with 6 different modes and speeds to choose from. It’s easy to use and rechargeable too, where the battery can last around 2 weeks.
7) Ogawa Smart Eye Massager
Unlike the rest of the listed products above that are made versatile for different body areas, the Ogawa Smart Eye Massager focuses solely on the eyes. Or more specifically, tired eyes. It’s particularly useful for those who regularly work or study in front of a laptop or desktop PC for long hours.
The Ogawa Smart Eye Massager comes in an adjustable 180° folding design for easy storage. At the back of the eye massager, you will find an intelligent 3D Air Pressure massage function and upon putting it on, simply press the button to activate it. Just sit back, relax and let the eye massager do all the hard work.
And that is not all, as it provides not one but up to five different massage modes to choose from, depending on your respective needs. Its universal-fit design makes it comfortable enough to put it on while the built-in speaker allows you to play your favourite song or music via Bluetooth connectivity.
