Application and operation

Donnerberg from Munich has been known since the original NM089 neck massager – our favorite. With the Krafty RM099, the company now has a massage pillow on the market that makes most of the others look old. The Donnerberg massage cushion Krafty RM099 is the only massage cushion in comparison that offers a tap massage in addition to the Shiatsu massage and heat function. Eight rotating and two tapping massage heads at three speeds ensure comprehensive relaxation of the muscles in the back and neck. In addition, the Donnerberg massage pillow is the only one that offers an infrared heat function in two stages and can also be used as a pure heat pillow. There is no need to worry about whether the massage is effective. This is ensured by the powerful 36 watt motor. The pillow with its ergonomic shape and high-quality materials can be carried like a bag with the handle. In addition, the simple operation via the buttons on the side does the rest for the comfortable handling of the Krafty massage cushion. The 7 year manufacturer’s guarantee shows that this is an absolute quality product.

The Naipo oPillow-C1 is the latest massage pillow from the German Mustbuy GmbH. Previous findings were incorporated into the design and brought down to a common denominator with the requirements of a typical user. The result is a combination of a back support cushion for the office chair and a massage cushion, which can be attached to it at any height using Velcro. For this purpose, the massage heads of the Naipo oPillow have been flattened so that they can act on a larger area of ​​the tissue while rotating, but more gently. The model for real physiotherapists is massage with the palm and fingers. There is also a pleasant warming function.

A tip for use

Massage pillows are great for relaxing. But even stubborn tension can be relieved with their help with regular treatment. However , if you are already in pain, you should approach the matter carefully. Started too roughly and you already demonize the pillow after the first use. That would be a shame for the money invested. Therefore , carefully look for the right spots and only lean lightly against the pillow at first. Gradually increase the pressure . Also, try to change your position from time to time. You should only exert great pressure on the massage cushion when you have already learned how and with what intensity it affects the problem areas.
