What Is a Massage Pillow?
A massage pillow, sometimes known as a massage cushion or massage bolster, is a popular type of at-home massaging device. It is designed with a wide shape that conforms to many different areas of the body. In fact, you can use this type of device as a neck massage pillow, a back massage pillow or a leg massage pillow, to name a few.
Besides being incredibly effective at delivering the therapeutic benefits of massage, these pillows are also conveniently portable. They're lightweight and compact, so you can easily move them from room to room in your home or bring them along while traveling. You may even want to keep one at work for those days when you're experiencing muscle tension or increased stress.
At truMedic®, our massage pillows use Shiatsu massage to help relieve pain and loosen tense or stiff muscles. The kneading method applied in Shiatsu massage also helps to boost circulation, which can help speed up healing and reduce inflammation. It's also incredibly relaxing, which is why many people, even those without injuries or pain, love to use massage pillows on a regular basis.
How to Use a Massage Cushion
Massage therapy pillows from truMedic® are designed to be very user-friendly. However, you can keep these tips in mind to make sure you get the most out of every massage with this type of device:
Maintain close contact: A massage pillow works best when you have firm contact between the area of the body you want to target and the surface of the pillow. So rather than lightly resting it on the area, make sure you are propping it up against something to maintain close contact. For example, you can rest your back against it while sitting in a chair, or you can prop it up on couch or a bed before resting one of your calves on it.
Apply heat: One of the perks of using a truMedic® massage pillow is that you get to enjoy the benefits of heat therapy. This optional setting can be turned on whenever you want to include soothing warmth with your massage.
Charge it up: You don't need to be near an outlet in order to use a truMedic® massage pillow. Simply charge the long-lasting battery and you can take it anywhere for on-the-go relief.
Choose a heated massage pillow from truMedic® to get a professional-quality massage whenever and wherever you need it.
