The Kneading Shiatsu Massager was designed by a professional massage therapist. After working on thousands of clients, he realized that the most effective solution to neck and shoulder pain was immediate treatment and regularly scheduled sessions.
The Kneading Massager actually duplicates the motions that a massage therapist would make if he or she was working on your neck and shoulders.
You can use the unit in comfort of your favorite high backed chair, or lay down in bed or on the floor for a great neck massage. The Kneading Massager can be used by anyone who has sore muscles. You control the pressure of the massage by how hard you lean in to the unit, so you don't have to worry about too much pressure. Unlike massagers that vibrate or oscillate, the Kneading Massager employs two mechanical "thumbs" that provide deep, rhythmic kneading of muscles in the back, neck shoulders, feet, arms and legs. By duplicating the firm hand action of a trained massage therapist, the unit relaxes your tight muscles. Tension melts away, and you feel soothed and refreshed.

Worth the price
I’ve suffered with horrible back pain since I was in my early 20′s and have always been a proponent of massage therapy. Life has gotten too hectic and I can’t afford regular massages, but the pain just got too great. I needed a massager that would actually work and I was willing to pay extra for it. Those thin, cheap mats that sort of vibrate just don’t do the trick. (Or anything for that matter) I’ve tried decent shiatsu massagers but the price always turned me off. I guess if you are in enough pain, price isn’t that important! I’ve been using it daily since I received it and the effects have been obvious. I bought it in conjunction with a back stretcher since I also no longer get chiropractic treatments and my pain is now controlled. I went from stooped over, in agony, with stabbing neck and sciatic pain, to being able to walk without discomfort. I know I need to keep up with it or I’ll just revert back to my hard as rock muscles, but it’s worth it to take the time for myself. I use it on my neck, between my shoulder blades, and lower back mostly. I was in such bad shape I hurt terribly the first day after I started but now I am much more pliable. Don’t let the price scare you off. If regular massage is important to you, this is a great home product. I control the pressure and point it where I need it. I would rather have a home device that can give me the exact massage I want than pay money for someone to do a halfhearted job.
Expensive, but worth it
There are a lot of massage units on the market, and many of them are cheap, and cheaply made. What I like about this unit is that it’s very sturdy and well made. The pressure is very strong and even when I press hard against it, the “fingers” don’t slow down. Highly recommend this for tired muscles.
This kneading massager is AMAZING. First off, the kneads are extremely powerful. I put it against the bed and sit on the floor and start from my neck and work it down all the way to my lower back. It’s help take out annoying knots from stress and tension. When I use it for a good 20 minutes or so, I feel refreshed and rejuvenated. I would definitely recommend to others.
I received this as a gift. It is the best! Totally worth the money. I use it daily to massage the heels of my feet, and my neck. Oooo baby!
Kneading Fingers Are Back
I am a massage therapist, and the founder of AllAboutMassagers. I have been carrying Kneading Fingers Massagers since they first came in to the US decades ago. For some reason, they disappeared from the marketplace for a long time. Now i’ve been able to find a manufacturer that could make a good unit for us.
The mechanics of the Kneading Fingers is similar to what a massage therapist would do to really get deep into the tightness and soreness that gets stored up in your muscle tissue. I like this unit mostly for my neck, and then to get the muscles up and down my spinal column.
If you like massage, this unit is like having your own massage therapist. It will never replace a person’s hands, but it’s a darn good second choice. I recommend it to anyone who likes a deep massage. You just lay it on the ground or put it in the back of a chair. You don’t have to hold it, which allows you to be much more passive and receive the benefits without having to hold the massager at the same time you’re trying to relax.
My personal massaging expert!
Ever since I switched over to my new job and succumbed to tough working conditions and long office hours, acute back and neck pain had become an inseparable part of my life. Though, initially I visited a therapist for massage sessions and got some relief, this couldn’t last for long owing to my busy office schedule. Hence, I was in grave need of an massaging aid, which could provide me with a permanent solution to my back and neck ache, that too at the convenience of my home and as per as my schedule. It was then I came across this massager on the web named “The Kneading Shiatsu Massager”.
Reading through the features of the product and witnessing my troubled state, I ordered the product instantly, with a hope that it might work well for me. On delivery, this massager extraordinarily proved beyond my expectations. As I used the product for the first time, I felt instant relief, similar to the effect obtained after a professional massage therapy session. This amazing massager provides a deeply penetrating massage with adequate focus on the tired fingertips. Moreover, it comes with a built-in timer, allowing me to do other works while the massager can actually relieve me of the unwanted pains.
The kneading works pretty good and does help (there is nothing that can replace trained hands though) I don’t like the controls, the thing is behind me and I have to try and grab it and bring it to the front to get to the controls. It should have a wired remote to make it easier. I wanted this mainly for my neck and upper back and it does help but don’t expect miracles.
Exactly what I needed
I was reluctant to buy a massager online considering I would often be disappointed with the products I tried out in stores. However, a co-worker recommended this kneading meassager to me and I am so happy to have it. I purchased via AllAboutMassagers.com and found the customer service & expertise of John William Johnson to be comforting and above expectations. Highly recommended buying experience altogether!
grad student’s back pain
as a grad student, i do tons of studying… usually my upper back gets really tense by the end of the day. This machine really helps my greatly as it melts those tension away. great for neck. It also feels really good for leg massages also such as calves, thigh, and so on. However, I find it hard to message my lower back…. sitting on the chair with it, the machine doesn’t really go as far down as i want it to be. However, great machine. would purchase again if it breaks.
A good gift for family who has back/neck pain
I bought this for my husband since he’s a computer guy and works LONG hours in front of the computers. I gather that it will save a lot more money in the long term than going to a professional massager from time-to-time. My husband loves to use the machine whenever he’s back from work while he’s playing with his XBOX on his reclinder. After that, i will offer him a heated/microwavable neck and shoulder wrap. OH YEAH!!! HE LOVES IT!!! And I use it whenever my back starts to hurt, if i had been spending too much time shuffling the snow. Be honset, it’s a very good gift for family too, esp. if you have no idea what to give on their birthdays.
