    I used this thing and initially it felt good, but later the muscles in my back were SO sore for at least 3 days. It was a terrible experience.

    • I am sorry that you had a bad experience. I have been using mine for a long time now and I have not experienced the same problem. It is possible that you did something else to hurt your back, or that you used the massager improperly. Often stores have these on display and you can try them out. You should do this to make sure it is a fit for you.

    Bought this one and within a week the right shoulder roller broke. Took it back to the store to replace it because I really did LOVED it. Within a week the same roller broke again. I do not know if this is a defect in the unit as a series or I am the unluckiest person in the world. I am only 5’9″ and 170lb so I am not sure who it is made for, maybe 5’9″ and 115lb?

    When it did work it was amazing. My back and shoulders have never felt better. It feels so good working the muscles it makes you go cross eyed.

    For almost $200 I would expect a little better craftmanship and for it to be made of something other then plastic.

    we’ve used ours 4 or 5 times so far and it feels great! i used it a few nights ago while watching a movie. then after about 15 minutes it quit to cool down, which is normal.so i let it sit overnight and tried it again the next morning but now it wont turn on. ive tried everyday since then and it wont even light up. i have no idea what is wrong with it because it has worked fine every other time! how do i get it to turn back on??

    • I have had this happen before. I think the power supply has burned out. There are lots of reasons why this happens (power surges, etc) but the only way to fix it is to get a replacement, hopefully yours is still under warranty.

      As a preventative measure I always unplug mine when I am done so that I know a random power surge or any other power anomaly won’t kill it. It could also be plugged into a surge protector/power conditioner reduce the chances of this happening.

    brand new out of the box. turned it on, great. now it doesnt turn off. the power light just blinks and it is stuck in lower back mode. I cant change the mode, or heat, or turn it off without unplugging it. plug back in and same thing.
