Shiatsu “style” Massage?

A genuine Shiatsu massage is one whereby pressure is applied with thumbs, hands, elbows, knees or feet  to pressure points on the body.

  • Product Details

    This product comes boxed direct and can be ready for use in just a few minutes. Familiarise yourself with the manual before getting started. The unit comes with both a DC and mains AC power adaptor.This means you can use it at HOME or in the car / caravan from 12V DC. Just plug it in to the preferred power source and press the ON button.

    For the next 15 minutes sit back and enjoy the massage. To prevent over heating the massager automatically turns OFF after 15 minutes. You can re-start it by pressing the ON/OFF button. The massage nodes will rotate both clockwise and anti-clockwise automatically. If you want to FORCE a direction change just press the button.

    NOTE > At all times some nodes are rotating clockwise, others anticlockwise. This opposing rotation is what gives the unit the Shiatsu style deep massage.

    Control Panel on Naipo Massager

    Want it HOT

    If you want your massage to really soothe aching muscles simply turn on the optional heater. The massage nodes glow red as they emit a pleasant warming sensation in to the muscles.

    Want it Harder / Softer

    The great thing about this Naipo massager are the arm slings. Pullling DOWN with your arms will increase the pressure applied throughout the massage. Raising the arms slightly will soften the intensity of the massage.

    Faster or Slower

    It is also possible to control the SPEED of the massage nodes. The speed control provides access to 3 variable speeds from slow, to medium to fast. Personally I preferred the medium and slower speeds.

    Video Presentation

    A short video of CardioCritic using this Naipo massager. Trust me, I’m enjoying it even if it doesn’t show on my face. When making the video we tried several times with more smiling and lots of “ooohs” and “aaaahs” as the nodes got deep in to the shoulder muscles. The result was something you really wouldn’t want to be seen watching, trust me here. Take my word for it .. it’s a LOVELY FEELING lots of pleasure with a little “nice” pain too.

    CardioCritic has really enjoyed reviewing this product. We were thinking about giving it away as a prize but sorry … I am keeping it ! I have always been lucky with my neck/back and never really considered purchasing a massager. The Naipo neck and back massager has convinced me that you do NOT need to have a back or neck problem to enjoy a lovely, deep invigorating massage. I have awarded the Naipo Kneading Shiatsu Style Massager a highly recommended 5/5 Star CardioCritic review rating.
