NEW FIVE STAR FIVE S FS8801 Shiatsu Kneading Massager Review

The Five Star FS8801 is a good massage pillow that comes at a decent price. This neck and shoulder massage pillow offers a nice massage experience, and it comes with a heated massage feature.

Features And Programs

One of the great things about this massage pillow is that it uses no less than 8 massage nodes to produce a comfortable massage experience. The massage nodes are uneven, and they provide a relaxing massage as they rotate around their axis.

The nodes try to simulate the hand movements a professional masseur would do, and they rotate clockwise and counterclockwise to reach deep beneath your muscles. The direction of the nodes’ rotation can be controlled manually or automatically. If you choose to use the automatic function, the massage nodes will change their rotation direction every minute.

Another great thing about this massage pillow is that it comes with a heated massage feature. This feature is very helpful for relieving your muscles from pain, and it will spread comfortable warmth across your back. Even when it’s at its highest temperature, the heat feature will not be harmful. Using the heating feature is not only good for your muscles, it’s also good for your brain. This feature is very relaxing, and you will feel like a new person after every massage session.

This massage pillow is very safe to use. It comes with built-in safety features that ensure neither you or your propriety can get damaged while using it. One of this helpful features is the 15-minute automatic turn-off function. This function ensures that the massager doesn’t overheat if you somehow forget to turn it off after a session. The function also saves power, making sure the massage pillow doesn’t work for more than 15 minutes at a time.

If you want to enjoy a massage session longer than the default 15 minutes the massager offers, you can simply restart the unit after it turns off.

As far as portability goes, this pillow has you covered. In fact, this pillow comes with a car adapter, so you will be able to use it in your vehicle. The adapter connects to the vehicle’s cigarette lighter and it provides the power it needs to run. Even though you can use the massage pillow in a car, that doesn’t mean you should use it while driving. Getting a massage can make your muscles to spasm, making it very dangerous while driving.

Not only is this a good product, but the manufacturer also provides a great customer service. You will be able to return the product within 30 days of purchase if you’re not happy with it, and you will receive your money back with no questions asked.
