The Pinook Mini Massager Review

Updated on October 6, 2013

Why keep paying high cost of massage therapy, when you can have it at your fingertips.

I recently gave this to my Mother for Christmas, and wish I had taken a picture of her and her husband after they gave it a test run. They were both so relaxed, they fell asleep where they sat.

It's called a PINOOK digital portable mini massager, and I came across it at one of those booths in the center of the mall. The ones I usually try to avoid :). I allowed the rep to sit me in a chair and place some sticky pads on my upper shoulders while she explained what it was and what all it did. I am very skeptical mind you, so i was just wanting her to do her demonstration so I could be on my way. However...................

The Pinook Mini Massage is smaller than an ipod, lightweight, and provides ultimate convenience. The number of buttons are minimal and once you read the directions, very easy to use. As it is applied on human body, regular movement of relevant muscle groups of the human body will bring out about the therapeutic effect of an actual manual massage . Here is a list of just SOME of its uses:

pain relief for:
sore muscles
joint aches
back aches and pains

stiff muscles
injury recovery
stimulates blood circulation, muscle toning

promotes absorption of inflammatory substances
relieves tissue adhesion

Eliviates cervical syndrome
periarthritis of shoulder
lumbar muscle strain
fascistic and joint pain
good for bedridden patients, and hemiplegia by helping to prevent muscle atrophy

ALSO..headaches, nose bleeds, appetite suppression, smoking cessation, constipation, high blood pressure, diabetic nerve pain and also helps diabetic decrease of circulation to the lower extremities.

I have a lot of tension high in my shoulders, and also a pinched nerve in my lower back, and after I had this on for just a few minutes on my shoulders, I felt like my muscles just melted. I was sold instantly, and also was going through my mental gift list thinking of my Dad who has tried everything for his back, and my Mom.

This is the perfect gift for someone who has everything, and is hard to shop for. Who doesn't enjoy a great massage, and to have this in the convenience of your home, or to be able to take it with you when you travel, how great would that be. It is rechargeable and comes with the ac wall charger. Along with this, you're given a provided a full chart of the over 100 ailments the Pinook aids with. I will definitely be getting my hands on more of these as gifts, and for myself.

UPDATE: Found Similar Items For Much Less

I got to looking around at different products of this type, and I found several. They are lower priced, but appear to work in the same nature as the Pinook. They also have received good reviews. i wish I had known about these before, only because I could have purchased more, for more people. One of these is even being sold at $430 off the original price of $500. Check them out.

    Great article. Now I want a mini massager. This way sounds a lot less expensive then paying for an actual licensed massage therapist. What is the price range of an item like this.

    These are all good products, but as a Licensed Massage Therapist of 11 years now I have to say there is nothing that will replace a hands on massage. Anything that helps you with stress and anxiety in my opinion is a great thing! I encourage everyone to do things that work for them. I wish some of these things felt better for me lol because even though I have a license to do Massage doesn't mean I get them for myself unfortunately. I do love some of the products listed though! =) Great hub!
