I have suffered with chronic migraine for the last 20 years after having been a passenger in a very bad car wreck back in 1994. I ended up with an undiagnosed hairline fracture in my neck that has since become extremely arthritic and painful, causing almost daily, debilitating chronic migraines. I've done years of physical therapy, myotherapy massage, electric stimulation to my neck, and tried and taken multiple migraine and/or pain medications over the years for little relief.

On, Jan. 1st, 2015, I happened to be in our local Brookstone with my husband and just by happenstance sat in the chair with this particular massager attached to it. I unconsciously turned it on for a moment to see how it felt. Almost immediately my neck muscles loosened up and the back roller was doing wonders to the knots in my back & shoulders. It honestly feels better than any deep tissue massage I have gone to get in the last few years! This massager can give such a deep tissue massager, better than human hands can, anyway.

My husband saw the effect it was having on me and to my pleasant surprise he bought it before I even got out of the chair. We brought it home and attached it to the rocking chair, in my bedroom, and was able to use it right away. I figured out the heat function and the different neck/back adjustments easily within a few minutes.

The remote is easy to use. There aren't many buttons to figure out and adjustments to position of the rollers is easy. You can set it however you'd like your massage to go. You can do a full torso massage from butt to neck or just do a heated neck massage. Really, it seems the options are endless... You can pretty much do any kind of combination.

Just from yesterday, I feel like a new person. The neck rollers are amazing and give you the feel of a really good deep tissue massage. Add the heat function to it and it feels like heaven. I am really praying that this continues to be the relief I've desperately needed for my migraines. Thank you Brookstone. I could not be happier right now!!

Cons: (If you want to call them that)

1. Post massage you may notice your skin can be a little red from the depth of the massage... To me, that just indicates a great deep tissue massage...

2. I did have to place a pillow behind the massager, just for my own personal comfort. It could be because of the chair I had available to use. You may not have a problem with this.

Other than those two very minor things, I haven't found anything wrong with it at all... I'm thankful I won't have to leave my house to schedule appointments for massages anymore!

Breaks quickly:
Purchased in March, 2015 from local store. Read reviews here and saw that there was a manufacturing defect that Brookstone had already corrected. I assumed that prior stock that had the defective part had been pulled and the item was safe to purchase. Placed the massager onto my large office chair and within 20 minutes, the motor that drives the back massager up and down had stopped permanently in the lowest position. FWIW, the motor never made quality inspiring sounds while it was working. There is no date code or s/n that I could find on my massager or the product box, so I can't help isolate which manufacturing batch is defective.

Massager Features:
- Better for folks who are not so vertically enhanced. Tall folks will need to slouch to use the neck massager (which works GREAT!). Tall folks will need to slouch to target specific locations on their backs, mitigating the full back massage capability of this massager.
- Butt buzzers were pretty useless and were unnecessary for this chair.
- Air squeeze massage was also a silly feature that didn't do much of anything other than make a lot of noise.
- Neck massager is very strong. Unfortunately where the top of my head rests while receiving the neck massage is a very hard plastic with no cushion. This caused me some discomfort. Issue due to my height of 6'+?

Right there, that's it!:
- Oftentimes I want a massage at a specific sore spot. On this massager, you have to wait until it gets to that spot, then quickly press the target button to stop the movement. If you missed it or want just a bit higher or lower, you have to let the massager fully travel to the end of the current setting, then back to the spot you want. There is no way of nudging the massager up a bit or down a bit. This makes getting a targeted massage challenging.

All's well that ends well:
- Brookstone store associates were all exceptionally helpful both in the pre-sale, return, and replacement sale. Since it was obvious that Brookstone had not pulled the defective stock (my purchase was in brand new factory fresh box, not a repacked return), I decided against getting a replacement. Instead I picked up a http://www.brookstone.com/3d-lumbar-massager-with-heat which i LOVE. It goes exactly where I need it, is very strong, and the heat is great after a minute or so. I also got a http://www.brookstone.com/neck-and-shoulder-pro-massager-with-heat for my shoulders and I LOVE this massager too.

tl;dr - closing thoughts:
Brookstone has some great massagers without having to get one of the $$$$$ massage chairs. This product however isn't one of them. Wait until Brookstone states they have cleared all inventory of the defective models before considering a purchase. Or consider some of their other highly rated massagers.

            I tested this product in North Conway NH. I loved it and it was on sale for less than half the price listed on this site. The neck and the back massager hits all the right spots and it is adjustable. I would recommend this to anybody who has tight muscles its better than a paying someone to give you a massage.

                  Read the reviews before purchasing and decided they can't all be bad. But, alas, it broke within 2 weeks.

                  The roller was on the lower back setting, but started rolling up and it seemed like an electric/computer issue where the roller kept trying to go up, and then I heard a load crack and it was stuck.

                  Customer service is sending pre-paid shipping label. We'll see how the second one works. Maybe the problem is fixed in the refurbished items.

                  I really like the product when it worked.

                        The concept was great and the store model worked wonderfully, but both chairs we got had the same issue right out of the box: the rollers got stuck in the down position. With coaxing, I was able to get the rollers to move up, but they came right back down even on the "up" setting. Unlike with other reviews, there was no grinding sound; it just didn't work right. For the second time I am returning the product, this time for a refund.
                        I gave this a second chance because Brookstone noted they corrected the issue, but it wasn't fixed.

                            Wow what everyone is saying was true. It really breaks after a couple uses.. I was loving it until the neck section and back section seemed to collide making an awful breaking sound and then everything seemed as if it came off the track and would not go back up after going down.

                            I used it in the store and it worked perfectly. So maybe I got a dud...I'm going to try one more. Hopefully it lasts longer. If not I will get a refund.

                            Wish it was more durable, I have to say this really gets deep in the areas that I need worked out at a great price compared to full massage chairs.

                                    I bought this before Thanksgiving and I broke down after Christmas. The rollers wouldn't go up and when it did, it was making a grinding noise.I couldn't get a refund because it passed that 30 day policy, so I exchanged it for another one. The second one broke down after a month too. It wouldn't do anything after I press the power button. It'll just shut itself off. They still wouldn't refund my money so I got a store credit. Don't waste your time and money buying this item.
