The Moji 360 Massager is designed for anyone seeking a gentle or deep massage. Unlike some of the competitors, Moji offers a omni-directional product that can be used in any direction and at any angle. The Moji 360 is constructed of a strong and durable feeling plastic with metal roller balls in the underside for the massage. The Moji 360 is about 18 inches long and weighs a bit more than a pound. It’s available online at Amazon or on Moji’s website. Currently Moji is out of stock on the combo, but it’s available at Amazon also and includes a smaller hand massager that we didn’t review. If you’d like to see the Moji in action, you can check out their Vimeo page for a number of great videos.
We’ve been using the Moji 360 for about two weeks and have been impressed with it’s performance. Since you direct the pressure, you can choose to go for a light massage on tired muscles or really dig in and break up scar tissue. One of our initial concerns was with how the massager would handle body hair, but after multiple uses, we haven’t experienced any pulling. We’ve used a few massagers before that played hell on body hair, so if you’re not one of those that shaves completely, no need to worry here.
The Moji 360 features differently sized metal spheres to deliver different kinds of massage based on which part of the device you use. Moji calls this Tri-Zone and it’s a reasonably useful concept, although with a small device like the Moji, we do question the ability to finely distinguish which set of spheres you use. If you’re targeting a very small area, you can likely control the spheres used, but if you’re working something like your quads or calves, you’ll likely engage most or all of the spheres.
We found the Moji 360 to be most useful on larger muscle groups and really enjoyed using it on our calves and quads. We also found that it was useful on our traps if used in the same motion you’d use a towel to dry your back. We couldn’t exert as much pressure in this configuration, but the massager still worked quite well.
The angle needed to use it on our lower back was a little awkward for us, but if you have a partner to help, it’s much easier and just as helpful. It took some practice to massage our foot and heel, it takes a little work to get a good rhythm going. The handheld massager could be useful for a smaller area like your foot, but we did not test the handheld version.
Finally, we found the ends of the massager were also useful for personal massage. If you have a really bad knot of muscle, using the end of device to really dig into your muscles is quite effective and reminds this reviewer of an angry masseuse doing a real number on you. Not for beginners or those that are sensitive, but quite a powerful option.
Our overall verdict is that this is a simple yet elegant offering in the personal massager market and is much more useful than many other offerings because of the infinite angles available. If you’re in the market for a new massager, this one delivers all the benefits of similar devices and adds the omni-directional massage as a bonus.
