Backzuki is an acupressure mat that'll relieve pain and tightness in your upper back, lower back, neck and shoulders. You can use this mat on a chair, on your bed, on the floor, or even on a car seat, and the three stay-in-place straps will help hold it in the correct position. This blue mat comes in different versions designed for men and women and with each one, you'll also get a pair of Futzuki insoles that'll massage your feet as you walk.
The cost of Backzuki is $29.99 plus $2.00 shipping, for a total price of $31.99. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at backzuki.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Backzuki and has taken down the website. Backzuki may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
Backzuki relies on the principles of a well-known ancient art, acupressure, to do its job. While it relaxes and cushions your back, this mat will deliver gentle pressure to up to 4500 pressure points on your back, neck, and shoulders. This, in turn, will soothe these points and reduce pain. You'll notice that your Backzuki is covered with hundreds of strategically placed dots of various sizes—these dots are what applies the aforementioned soothing, healing pressure to the body. Using this mat is like getting acupuncture without the needles!
To begin using your Backzuki, you'll need to position it on the floor, on a chair, on your bed, or against the back of your car seat. If you're going to be using it on a chair or vehicle seat, and you think it might slide out of position, it'd be best to strap it down with the three attached straps.
Once you think you've got your backrest positioned correctly, try it out by sitting or lying down and resting your back, neck, and shoulders against it. If you feel good, you can simply let the raised dots on the backrest get to work massaging the appropriate pressure points on your body. In the event that you don't feel totally comfortable, you can slide your backrest up, down, or to either side to re-position it in seconds. Just remember to secure the straps again if you undo them.
Each of these backrests comes in a shade of bright blue, a color that many people, both male and female, tend to like.
The Backzuki is available in two different versions: One designed specifically to suit the female body, and the other designed to suit the male body. By ordering the design that corresponds to your gender, you'll increase the chances that you'll find your backrest extremely comfortable.
Each backrest is made of fairly soft plastic, so even though its raised dots will deliver gentle pressure to the body, you won't feel as if hard stones are digging into your skin or clothing.
If you want to take your Backzuki on a day trip or even on a longer trip, you likely won't find it difficult to transport in your vehicle, on a bus, or on a train. You'll be able to roll it up if you want to save space, and being able to roll it up will also come in handy if you're travelling on foot. What's more, it only weighs a couple of pounds, so it won't add a lot of weight to any load you might have to carry.
With each Backzuki you get, you'll also receive a pair of Futzuki insoles ( male or female ) that will massage your feet in the same way the backrest does your back. You'll be able to cut your insoles, which come in the same shade of blue as the backrest, down to fit any size of shoe you choose.
If you find that the standard version of this backrest doesn't offer you quite enough relief, you can also obtain a deluxe version that's made of higher-quality, firmer plastic. This version will deliver a back, neck and shoulder massage that's a bit stronger without being painful.
After the Backzuki reduces any pain and tightness you may normally experience in your back, neck and shoulders, your mental state will likely improve along with the physical. You will likely find more enjoyment in your daily activities and also find that you're able to be more productive than you would be without having this backrest in your life.
Instead of using this device, you could get a massage from another person. However, you'd need to have the time and financial resources to seek out a professional, or convince a friend or relative to do the job. A friend or relative who isn't a professional massage therapist could actually end up causing you more pain than you started with.
Some people who are having back, neck, and / or shoulder pain choose to see a professional for acupuncture, but this also takes time, and can be uncomfortable or even scary for some individuals.
There are many standard backrests that you can attach to a chair on the market, but most of these won't massage your back in the same way that the Backzuki will. They'll provide some padding for you to relax against, but that's basically all they're good for.
