The new Five Star FS8801 is a shiatsu neck and back massager pillow with heat that you can also use for your shoulders, feet, legs, arms, and waist or other body parts where you would like to get a kneading massage.
The pillow has 8 nodes that rotate and rolls. Shiatsu means “finger pressure” in Japanese and that’s what the rotation is trying to imitate. The rolling and rotating across your muscles will release some of that tension that you have built up over time.
A heating function is also built into the pillow. With a click of a button, you can get heat on demand. The nodes will start to heat up and you don’t have to worry about safety. Because the FS8801 has an automatic shut off function so it will shut itself off after 10 minutes. This will avoid overheating. It is very unlikely that it will start a fire.
Get massages in two directions. As the massaging nodes have rotated over your muscles for a while from one direction, you can change the direction of rotation with one click on the controller. Now the nodes start rolling in the opposite direction. This gives you a balanced massage and effectively works your muscles from two angles.
A good thing about this product is that it is portable. You can carry it around with ease. Use it at home, or bring it to your car and plug it into the 12V outlet in the car. It even comes with a car adapter so you don’t have to buy one yourself.
Not only is this a good product, but it also lets you buy it without worries as it has a 30 day period where you can claim a full refund. No questions asked. That allows you to purchase it without worrying whether or not you will be satisfied with the product, and whether or not you will waste your money.
Another thing that is worth noticing is that it comes with a 3 years warranty.

The Five Star FS8801 is a pretty decent quality shiatsu massager that has good intensity and goes deep into the muscle tissue. It is quite versatile and can be used on many different parts of the body. Some customers have reported that it can be a bit noisy, and that the fabric covering the nodes could be smoother as they are a bit rough, and that it does not generate heat well. But overall it is a product that has good value for the price as it is quite affordable.
