The Zyllion ZMA 13 BK is a Shiatsu Pillow Massager that has a lot to offer. It has four nodes that rotate and kneads deep into your muscle tissue. Shiatsu is Japanese and basically means finger pressure. So the pillow is created to try to imitate that type of pressure.
One of the many nice features is that the rotating nodes reverse after a minute of pressure, and starts pressing in the reverse direction. This balances each session so you get the same amount of kneading in two opposite directions of the muscles.
The pillow has a built-in infrared heating function. Heat relaxes the tension in your muscles while also stimulating blood flow to the muscles that help rebuild them. If you’re worried about heat, it also has a built-in overheat protection that automatically shuts the pillow off after 20 minutes so it is unlikely to accidentally start a fire.
When it comes to design, Zyllion has really done a fine job with this pillow. It is ergonomic and slim and compact. Easy to carry around. You can also attach the included adjustable strap and fasten it to almost any chair. So you can use while sitting it in your dining chair while relaxing in your recliner, or while driving in your car seat.
Another nice feature is the fabric of the pillow. It is enclosed in a nice smooth leatherette and the nodes are covered by a smooth texture. The machine also comes with a car charger and power adapter included.
A few things to consider when using this massager is that it rotates the nodes, so it may rub against your bra strap if used on your upper back area. After a while it may tear on the fabric cover, so you may want to use a towel or blanket to avoid having it rub directly against your skin. When using heat you also want to make sure not to put it directly on the skin for longer periods as it may burn your skin, so wear at least one piece of clothing to protect yourself.
