Got this about a week ago and I have to say it is really good. I’m using it every day. It’s great that it’s not just for your neck and shoulders but can be moved around the whole body. I’m using it on my calf’s and thighs (along with a nice shoulder massage) you can control the presser by pressing on it and it slowly works its way up or down the leg. I have just started running again every second day and it feels great I also think is helping recovery. After 5 minutes the machine is nice and warm and really makes it feel nice as your muscles loosen up. The machine by default will start with the heat on and change direction every few minutes or so. I don’t find I need to use the controls at all. I’m having trouble getting this off my partner who likes to use it too. Overall great machine, compact enough that it can slide under my sofa out of the way each day and grab it when I want some relaxing or recovery time.
