Heated Massage Pillow
Relieve muscle tension in no time with a heated, yes, heated massage pillow that’s designed to merge with all of the contours of your neck, shoulders, back, feet and legs. This particular pillow has three adjustable speeds, and even though there is a heating element, it also has an overheat protection device and a 15-minute auto shut-off feature. What we love most about this massage pillow is that it’s discrete enough to use at the office which is where a lot of us start experiencing those aches and pains, thanks to certain chairs.

Pacifica also incorporates wellness and relaxation methods that may be new to you for a well-rounded app that helps you track your moods and thoughts, set daily goals, and use relaxation techniques to eliminate stress. And few stress relievers are better, or rather more accessible than an app because when don’t we have our phones with us?
