As we all know, life can be so hectic and go by so quickly. I am a busy mum of 3 as well as working part time and studying part time. I love life being this way and would not have it any other way. That said, with all the stresses and strains of daily life, I do look for better ways to unwind and reduce the pain I am in. One particularly troublesome area for me is my left shoulder, that always seems to be in pain. I do not have enough spare funds, or the time, to go for a massage appointment. I was therefore delighted when I received the Gtech MYO Touch Massage Bed to review.
The Gtech MYO Touch Massage Bed is an adjustable automated massaging bed with a robotic roller underneath the contoured bed that allows you to personalise your massage, and in the comfort of your own home!
The product arrived quickly in perfect condition. The box contained the following items:
- Track Sections (3 pieces)
- Track Pegs (stored on track)
- Massage Unit
- Power Supply and Switch)
There is some assembly required before use and it needs to be positioned correctly (away from the wall and near a power socket). It did not take long at all to set up.
I would describe the product as a camp bed style bed which has the massage roller underneath. The bed part of the device is made of soft canvas. The inventor has even incorporated a dipped footwell.
I was a little worried that the MYO Touch would be tricky to set up. I needn’t have been. You simply fit the 3 piece track together. Then you slot the foam roller into place and line the lightweight bed on top. This rolls along and presses through the material of the camp bed giving you a massage.
The bed is so comfy to lie on. You could easily fall asleep on it in such a state of deep relaxation. It’s great for a full length massage, but is just as wonderful when you move the track pegs into place to concentrate the massage on a problem area which in my case would be my left shoulder. The adjustment handle and tensioning cord are easily adjustable. This means that you can, as the Gtech website states, tailor the pressure of your massage. I would agree with Gtech saying on their website that the MYO Touch has been designed to meet your body’s needs. It’s been a real game changer. In my opinion it definitely improves the quality of life of those using it as it is definitely helping reduce my shoulder pain. Inventor Nick Grey, founder of Gtech is a genius! I would also agree with the claims on the website which say that the bumps and grooves on the roller get into your muscles, working away the tension and helping you wind down. I think that this product would be amazing for regular use after a long hard day (please note: If you suffer from any existing medical conditions, use any medical devices such as a pacemaker or are on medication, please consult your GP before using the MYO Touch).
The MYO Touch comes with a generously long cord (2.5m) and you don’t need to worry if you start to feel like you are falling asleep during use as the bed has been designed to cut out after 15 minutes.
One of the best things, apart from a relaxing massage, about the MYO Touch is how easy it is to disassemble and how little space it takes up when stored.
This product has made my year! It is perfect for unwinding after a long day. I think that the price is amazing value for what you get.
