    25 Of The Best Pieces Of At-Home Massage Equipment You Can Buy Online

    Turns out that being parked on your couch isn't the best for your lower back. But we're all making do.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A kneading neck and shoulder massager with eight rotating nodes to do the hard work your partner or v lovely roommate doesn't want to do for you. Buy them one too! How nice of you!,

    Promising review: "The massager is very flexible as you can easily adjust where you want it to be on your back to get the exact spot you are looking for. It's also very convenient, and can easily be taken with you anywhere (home, work, etc). The pressure and rolling of the massager is just right and very relaxing. The only downside is that it is not very quiet when in operation." —TechUser

    Get it from Amazon for $39.96.

    2. A foot massager I own and adore. You can keep it at your couch and roll your feet across it while you tackle your inbox. All the lil' nodules help me feel relief after walking around in not-good-for-you shoes, and will be a welcome treat even if the only walking you're doing is from the couch to the bathroom to the kitchen.

    Promising review: "I love this product! I bought it to keep under my desk at work to help relieve stress and keep up circulation throughout the day. The knobs on the rollers hit exactly the right pressure points and it feels wonderful!" —Melissa A. Syphurs

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    3. A massaging shampoo brush with silicone bristles that aren't too hard and aren't too soft for a clarifying head treatment that'll loosen built-up product AND feel oh-so-satisfying. Sometimes it's hard to make yourself actually wash your hair when you aren't leaving the house. This will do the convincing for you.,

    Promising review: "Using this thing has definitely been a game-changer for me. I sit down in my shower, apply shampoo to my scalp and use circular motions to massage my scalp and it feels sooooooo gosh darn good! I have 3B hair. The silicone bristles are not too soft and not too hard and the hand grip is perfect. I swear, if someone were to use this and massage my scalp for me, I'd probably pass out." —Ella Sans

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors).

    4. A heated shiatsu-style foot massager for a DEEP massage that'll make your old dogs purr. Didn't know dogs could purr? Well they can.,

    Promising review: "After reading several reviews, my husband bought this foot massager for me. I suffer from plantar fasciitis and my foot and heel pain is sometimes unbearable. I've only had this for one day, but I've already used it three times. Each time I found complete relief! The instructions state to not use more than 20 minutes at a time, likely so it does not burn up the motor. There are two buttons, on/off and power button, to switch between off/massage/heated massage. The heat feature is great and it really does heat up! For $50, you really can't go wrong!" —S T

    Get it from Amazon for $65.99.

    5. Or a next-level, splurgey deep-kneading foot massager that'll be the next best thing to going to the spa.


    It has deep kneading, vibrating, rolling, and heat functions, and is set with five different pressure settings that'll perfectly hit your pressure points.

    Promising review: "This is truly the most amazing and wonderful foot massager I have ever had the extreme pleasure of using. This thing gives an awesome massage with very good pressure. My feet feel better than they ever have. I highly recommend this!" —KatK

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99.

    6. A shiatsu-style heated massager with rotating nodules you can move as you see fit. Try it on your lower back, under a calf, most anywhere that could use a little treat.,

    Reviewers use this for their back, shoulder, legs — all kinds of spots to relieve some tension!

    Promising review: "I use it for massaging my legs. After doing yoga, my muscles hurt. I like the adequate pressure and warming function at winter. It's small and convenient to bring, so I use it in my bedroom or living room when watching Hulu. Lying down on my comfortable couch and having a massage feels like heaven. Lazy but happy." —Claire

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    7. A rose quartz massager and roller perfect for giving yourself a pampering face massage with your holy grail face oil.

    Promising review: "I’ve had two other jade rollers that both cost about $15 for just the roller — and they were both garbage compared to this one. The jade rolled unevenly, the metal parts kept falling apart. I was fine with it because well, they’re cheap. I lost my last one and went to order a new roller, and this one was a set for the same price of just a roller, so I gave it a shot. Huge difference in quality! This set is amazing, the roller well crafted, the quartz smooth and rolls well without any scraping noise. Highly recommend." —Ro R

    Get it from Amazon for $16.69.

    8. Or an ice roller for your face made to store in your freezer and then pull out when you wanna use it to depuff and relieve your face (especially those under-eyes!).

    Promising review: "I pop this into my freezer and roll my face when I’m in need of depuffing or to calm my skin. Great design. The barrel is removable for better cleaning." —LoveLake3

    Get it from Sephora for $30.

    9. A rechargeable massager with more than two hours of power to help you get through seemingly endless conference calls that could've been an email. "Sorry my Wi-Fi isn't cooperating with video calls rn!" ::mutes sound and bites into a sandwich::

    Promising review: "My husband was initially mocking my purchase as another gimmick but I've turned him into a believer! We both work from home and when I can tell he's stressed out I just walk up behind him with this massager and start using it on his back and neck and he melts into a puddle. It's far more powerful than I thought it would be. I use it for myself on the lowest setting but my husband prefers it on the max. We've had it for months and it works just as well as when I first got it. The charge lasts for a long time. Very impressed!" —Amy K

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99.

    10. A hand massager you can do while you catch up on your stories because the group chat has been on FIRE lately, making your digits work overtime.

    Promising review: "I actually like using it on the side of my poor arthritic fingers rather than over the top. I also found that it really feels good over my knuckles. I wasn't sure if it would reach that far (knuckle area) but it does. It feels good. Hand arthritis hurts and it is nice to have some relief." —M. V. Kolar

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    11. A nubby massage ball to roll under your old dogs to help relieve pain from plantar fasciitis and just general soreness.

    Promising review: "One of the great benefits — this is portableI I use this at my desk at work for my plantar fasciitis and then I slip it in my purse and use it at my computer desk at home or while sitting and watching television. I find these much better than using golf balls, which are about the same size, because this doesn't slip, doesn't roll away, and it doesn't feel quite as hard against my heel bone." —katjane

    Get it from Amazon for $5.06.

    12. An acupressure tool you probably saw on Shark Tank to help massage away the knots in spots where your hand can't reach like you need.


    Promising review: "I saw this item on Shark Tank and bought it right away when I saw you had it. It is the greatest invention ever. It's like getting a free massage at the right pressure points. My upper back (by the neck) was always tight and hurting. I haven't had a tight back in months. I use it whenever I need it. Buy it, you won't be sorry." —Jo Ann Cornelli

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    13. A heated eye mask with air compression and Bluetooth capabilities that'll help you create your own soothing fortress of solitude outside of your bedroom.

    Promising review: "At first I was a little hesitant. The pressure on my eyes was a little heavy so I loosened the strap to make it more comfortable. I thought it was just OK until it massaged a headache away. I work nights and have a hard time sleeping in the day, but the sleep mode really relaxed me. My only complaint is that it could be a little quieter. I prefer to use sleep mode as I would rather not listen to music, but the Bluetooth was easy to pair and the product overall is user-friendly." —SYorke

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    14. An electric scalp massager reviewers also say will work some wonders on other parts for some soothing effects.,

    Promising review: "Amazing! I know it’s a scalp massager but I’ve used it on my chest and back and it’s a dream. Seriously! Easy to use, charges quickly, holds the charge for a long time." —Naomi

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    15. A pair of classic head massagers with smooth acrylic beads ready to get down to *that* spot on your scalp that you can't seem to get to by yourself.

    Promising review: "These scalp massagers are amazing! One of the reasons I waited so long to divorce my cheating, lying ex-husband was because he always rubbed my head to calm me down. These head massagers replicate that relaxing sensation and, best of all, they never lie to me! In all seriousness I would highly recommend this product, great value and good quality." —Allykat

    Get them from Amazon for $5.99.

    16. A shiatsu-style massager mat for coverering your head, neck, shoulders, back, and behind. So most everything you can have massaged while sitting in a desk chair. (OK, feet too. But I've got foot massagers in here for you too.)

    Promising review: "I work at a desk job and I'm usually stiff by the end of the day. This massager is exactly what I needed. I have tried others that just do not provide the deep massage that I need. It might be a little strong for some people. My daughter just folds a towel in half and places it on her back and that works well for her." —Ibette621

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99.

    17. And a more affordable vibrating cushion just begging to be parked on your favorite spot on the couch rn. Then once we're all no longer working from home, you can put it in your car so your commute can be a bit more relaxing too!

    Promising review: "Great. After a long day of work this guy fits on my couch nicely and feels amazing. Really negates my back pain and works in vehicles as well" —goddessoflubbock

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    18. A foam roller bar you can use solo to help relieve those muscles you worked hard thanks to that YouTube HIIT video.

    Promising review: "I have had a very sore inflamed IT band in my right leg. Tried stretching, heat/ice, etc. No relief. The first time I used this roller I was pain-free. No kidding! I forget about using the roller because it takes away my pain, so my pain returns. I find these little lumps in my superficial muscle that I work on. It really helps. You can vary the pressure and time you use it to roll. It looks like not much but this roller gave me pain relief for the first time in two years. I highly recommend this roller. I am a physician and I am not getting paid to endorse this product." —Steve F

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    19. A pair of massage balls to roll over tense spots. OR you can bribe a loved one to use to work on those knots. You can also pour oils in it for the rubdown., Amazon

    Promising review: "Oh wow. I had such a crick in my neck and shoulder that I couldn’t relax my arm. My husband worked the area with the roller and what a difference it made. It really worked on that muscle and feels so much better. I definitely recommend trying this if you have a knot or tight muscles." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99.

    20. And a stick-able muscle therapy ball you can put on the floor to keep it right where you like it. Or put it on the wall so you can rub up against it like a bear rubbing its back on a tree. Hey, the bears have good ideas! I'm not gonna knock 'em!

    Promising review: "I bought two of these — one for me and one for my brother. We both have chronic back issues, and this is much more handy than trying to use a tennis ball against a wall!" —Mary

    Get it from The Grommet for $19.95.

    21. A percussion massage gun with seven massage head attachments to help you zero in on the right fit for that pain in your neck... or your arch... or your calf.... you get my drift.

    Promising review: "Excellent quiet massage gun. I’ve been looking at these for a few weeks now and decided to pull the trigger. Nice and quiet, lots of attachments, and battery life has surpassed my need! Comes with a nice zip-up carrying case that holds all the heads and the charger." —Nolan

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    22. Or a splurge-worthy Theragun one of my coworkers swears by for tackling her sore, flat arches. And FYI, she compares it to using a hand mixer.


    Check out what my colleague Heather Braga has to say about it:

    "I have one of these bad boys and it has honestly been a game-changer. When I posted on my Instagram that I had received one, the responses I got were WILD. People are PASSIONATE about this gadget and now I understand why. I've used it on the arches of my feet and have way less pain than ever before. The nozzle at the end contracts at a high speed (think, a tiny punching machine) that surprisingly doesn't hurt but leaves your body buzzing in a good way.

    Don't be intimidated by its appearance. It's simple to use and extremely effective. It feels similar to managing a hand mixer — weird, but true. In my opinion, it's worth the money and it actually does work."

    Get it from Theragun for $249.

    23. A massaging eye wand set to help soothe your poor peepers that are getting way more screen time than usual. *Gently* use the massaging eye and then follow up with the included illuminating eye cream for an experience that'll make you say "AHHHHHHH."

    Promising review: "I bought this about a month ago and have been incorporating it into my routines. I use at night before bed and in the morning before makeup. I have puffy allergy eyes and the gentle vibrations as the wand passes seems to offer some level of depuff. Nice cream, very generous size." —Dmac085

    Get them from e.l.f. Cosmetics for $25.

    24. And a ~heated~ massaging recliner in case you're in the market for a new chair AND the magic touch. Also there are two cup holders. Uh, this is the utmost form of living-room luxury.

    Promising review: "This is absolutely amazing! I LOVE THESE CHAIRS!!!! Extremely easy assemble, it’s literally like four clicks and you can enjoy your new awesome recliner!!!! Great value for the price!!! I would totally recommend it to everyone!" —Roxana-Diana Fador

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in seven colors).

    25. A foot massager and exfoliator – it can feel like a total treat. Seriously, squirt some body wash from afar onto this brush, then use it to massage your feet, then rinse. You don't even have to bend down for it!

    Promising review: "A perfect shower complement. The FootMate anchors well, making it easy to use. The gel lathers up quickly and makes the foot massager more effective. All-in-all, soothing and energizing at the same time. Ahhhhhhhh! I highly recommend this." —KATHRYN

    Get it from The Grommet for $39.95.

    So who's ready to buy the same massager as your friends and FaceTime them during your extremely relaxing sessions?
