You may recall my rad review of evoDerma’s NOOME (a handheld device that uses a suctioning motion to massage the skin). Yet again I find myself impressed with another one of their products – the PRONECK Massager. As a blogger, you can imagine the toll screen time takes on my neck (add to that my day job as well). In any given day I spend hours inflicting what can be best described as some serious neck stress. To add to this fact, I get migraines as well with the pain always stemming from my neck at the base of my skull (if that sounds unpleasant, that’s because it is).
No doubt you too spend hours upon hours on your computer, on your phone or on some other device (the better statement may be who doesn’t spend hours in front of a screen?) Perhaps you’re migraine ridden like me *sigh*. Whatever the case, I’m totally convinced that this gadget is suitable for just about everyone and anyone.
The what and the how
The evoDerma PRONECK Massager is a portable massage unit that uses heat massage, vibrating massage and electric impulse massage – the last is low frequency, don’t worry – to relieve neck strain and stress (and for that matter, stress all around). It has six modes:
- Mode 1: Modes 2 through 6 (3 cycles of 15 minutes)
- Mode 2: Vibration & heating (15 minute cycle)
- Mode 3: Heating & electric impulse (15 minute cycle)
- Mode 4: Heating (15 minute cycle)
- Mode 5: Vibration (15 minute cycle)
- Mode 6: Electric impulse (15 minute cycle)
Using infrared waves, a remote is used to control the modes and other settings as desired (ranging from low to mid to high intensity). Just flick the only switch on the PRONECK Massger to “on” and voila! It’s as simple as that.
- User friendly
- Comfortable fit
- No carrying/storage case
To tell you I’ve got anything less than mad love for the PRONECK Massager would be a total lie. While I was hesitant about the electric impulse massage setting at first, oddly enough I find it to be the most relaxing. It sends gentle “zings” throughout the neck muscles for some serious post-use calmness.
I also quite like the heat massage, so with that being said I’ve come to favour mode 3 (heating & electric impulse) the most. I recommend using mode 1 to start as it takes you through all types of massage.
Come the end of October upon a two week vacay to the Philippines I definitely see the PRONECK Massager coming in handy during and after 24 hours of travel! If you’ve got a case of the travel bug or you’re a frequent flyer, this is definitely one gadget you’ll want to include in your carry-on.
While the PRONECK Massager regularly retails for $159 CAD, you can purchase it here for $75 CAD (shipping included) with my promo code TIMP (Canada only).
