Hunched over on our computers and phones for hours on end, many of us experience varying degrees of neck pain. While some like to splurge on massages, that can get pricey, and at-home neck massagers are a great, quick-fix solution. While there are a number of neck massagers available for purchase, it can be hard to differentiate which ones are a good fit for you and going through the process of researching each can be a real pain in the neck.

To help you find the right massager, we dug through thousands of reviews for a variety of options available online. Based on our research, these are some of the best neck massagers you can get right now.

Editor's Note

The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

Zyllion Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager

Ideal for travel, the Zyllion shiatsu back and neck massager is a great device to bring along for hiking, camping, and even on long drives. While we love this one for travel, it’s important to note that it’s corded, so you’ll need access to a power source, but it can be used with a car outlet.

The Zyllion massager is a Reviewed favorite for its fast relief for tight or sore muscles, and made our list of “20 amazing products you need to practice self care.” We love the versatility of use on multiple parts of the body—including neck, back, calves, thighs and even arms—giving you an easy full-body massage. An included sleeve can be used to lessen massage intensity for those who are more sensitive to bruising, and six heating lamps sitting on either side of the unit can be turned on or off easily for added luxury.

A 20-minute auto shutoff ensures that your neck massager won’t overheat or be forgotten, and while this feature can’t be overridden, users don’t have issues with it; recommended use states that the unit, and your body, should rest in 30 minute increments after use. However, one common complaint is that the on/off button is on the top of the unit, so it may be easy to accidentally turn off. Overall, users love the Zyllion neck massager.

Pros

  • Portable

  • Versatile

Cons

  • Tricky on/off button location

  • 20-minute auto shutoff

Resteck Shiatsu Kneading Massager

A solid choice among wraparound neck massagers, Resteck is one of the top-rated options on Amazon. Good for whole-body use, this massager is a small investment for your overall wellbeing. The best part of the Resteck massager is its flexibility for use on all parts of your body, from your neck to your feet. Hand loops allow for added downward pressure or a resting place for your hands, and four-button controls allow you to adjust the pressure to your liking without issue. A wall and car adapter are included with purchase, as well as a convenient carry bag, making this massager a great gift for those on the go—or a good addition to your travel carry-on—and users love using it on long car rides.

As with some other neck massagers on the market, the Resteck massager has a 20-minute auto shutoff for convenience and protection against overuse. While we love this as a portable neck-massager option, buyers should keep in mind that it’s corded and some have complaints about the length of the power cord.

Pros

  • Easy to store

  • Flexible

Cons

  • Short cord

  • Hand straps may be short

InvoSpa Shiatsu Back, Shoulder, and Neck Massager

Equipped with eight massage roller balls and three separate speed-strength levels, the InvoSpa massager is a great pick for neck and back massages. Two hand loops allow the user to push toward the ground for additional pressure, and infrared heat loosens tight muscles as it massages. An included carrying bag and the option for a wall and car adapter make this a great on-the-go massager.

Reviews do mention that the controls are placed in an awkward position on the device, and that the stiffness doesn’t allow for a ton of versatility, but for neck and back pain we like this option.

Pros

  • Three intensity levels

  • Carrying bag for transport

Cons

  • Bulky

  • Not very flexible

Comfier Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager

The Comfier neck and back massager is a full-body experience, and when paired with one of our favorite foot spas, you’ll be sure to feel your best after a pampering session. While this is a pricier option than some others on the market, we like the Comfier massager because of its ability to work the whole body as well as specific parts without much work on your end. Simply set your device for either 2D or 3D shiatsu massage, and the four rotation nodes will begin working their magic forward and backward. Other setting options include three intensity levels, heat and vibration, spot massage, adjustable compression massage on waist and hips, and the ability to make adjustments to where the nodes sit based on your specific height.

Due to the nature of this massager’s design, it is rather large, and thus wouldn’t be a good choice if you’re limited on space or looking to travel with your neck massager.

Pros

  • Nodes can be adjusted for height

  • Full-body massaging

Cons

  • On the pricey side

  • Extra large

Comfier Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager

A smaller cousin to the Comfier shiatsu neck and back massager, Comfier’s neck and shoulder massager is basic in its functions but can be used on smaller areas at a time, proving its versatility in a more compact package. While the neck and shoulder massager doesn’t quite have all the bells and whistles of the larger, chair-like version, users who have purchased this model like it for its simple control panel, which controls heat therapy, and the straightforward 3D massage using its eight rotating nodes.

Automatic shutoff after 15 minutes is built in to avoid overuse of this massager. While there’s only one speed setting, this massager is still said to hold a lot of power, and some users report pain after the first couple times that they’ve used it. Those on the go should know that this purchase only includes a home adapter; a storage bag or car adapter would have to be purchased separately.

Pros

  • Powerful

  • Easy to use

Cons

  • May hurt the first couple times

  • Only one speed setting
