When we searched Amazon for the best-rated massagers, this heated massager won out in the lower-back category. It has 73 percent five-star reviews, and reviewers say it works in a number of different areas, including the neck and legs. It’s currently a third off (£25, down from £37) as part of a limited-time lightning deal.
One five-star review said the gentle heat and soft, oscillating spheres made it perfect to ease the mild aches she got standing up at work all day. Another reviewer, who has had back pain for over a decade, said they cancelled their monthly £60 massages after using this once as it was so effective. Several reviewers noted that though the massager comes with straps for applying to the shoulders, the cushion-like shape makes it optimised for the lower back. The massager turns on with the touch of a button, and the heating element activates with a second push. One common criticism of this model, however, is that the power cable is quite short.
