After a Long Day of Flights, These Massagers Are Everything

Whether I’m traveling for three days or two weeks, traveling is stressful. Most travel days for me look like a predawn alarm (after just a couple hours of sleep), rush hour traffic, an early morning flight followed by more traffic, and maybe even a small road trip. I don’t care who you are. The end of that day is always tiresome. And then I have to do it all over again to get home. I get in late at night, I’m sore from carrying bags, and really, I just need a moment to relax and unwind. Cue Naipo massager!


Recently Naipo sent me a heavenly little package with a shoulder and foot massager in it! I have added in the Amazon affiliate links to the product, but this doesn’t cost you anything. It just gives you a way to purchase the item if you want to and Amazon sends me a ridiculously small percentage. I always think of my 70-year-old mom when I think of massagers, but hey, who am I to judge? After a long trip, I finally unpacked the items and decided to put them to the test. So how did they pan out?


Naipo Massager – I Didn’t Think I Needed it Until I Had One


The Naipo Neck and Shoulder Massager

The Naipo neck and shoulder massager has an adjustable intensity and 3D deep tissue messaging feature. It’s designed for use in your home or car. However, I did not use it in my car. They call it a professional Shiatsu massage which is delivered by using four big nodes and four small ones. The nodes which apply deep tissue massage to the neck, shoulder, upper back, lower back, waist, thigh, calve, leg, feet and arm areas.


I have to say, wearing it was kind of awkward (and certainly looks funny), but the massage itself was amazing! I sat there on the couch for about 20 minutes watching Netflix and chilling with a glass of wine while getting a deep tissue massage. It was pretty relaxing. This one is the less expensive of the two and retails for about $45.


The Naipo Foot Massager

This was the one I was most excited about. My feet hurt all the time! I have hardwood floors and I’m basically always standing. At the end of the day, travel day or not, my feet are screaming. The Naipo foot massager has 18 deep-kneading nodes that target acupuncture points on your foot which helps stimulate blood flow, relieve stress as well as a heated function. I was able to adjust the settings to my liking and just sit back and relax while getting an epic Shiatsu massage. I have to say this one is definitely my favorite between the two massagers. This one is far more expensive and retails for about $50 on Amazon.


Traveling and life, in general, is a little bit easier now that I have two great massagers to count on at the end of a long day. Naipo offers a 100% money back guarantee on their products, so if you order one and don’t like it, you can send it back for a full refund. But I think you’re going to love both the shoulder and foot massagers. And they would certainly make a great gift for anyone who is on their feet a lot, or travels a lot and needs to unwind after a long hard day.
