It’s been some time since I first reviewed the Moji Massager. Though I still use my foam roller and a few other implements to work out the kinks and pains of training, this massager is still one of my go-to tools, especially for the really deep massage that I love.
A few weeks ago, I received a Moji Mini-Massager as a free media demo. Since then, I’ve used it multiple times per week, sometimes more than once per day and have had a reasonably good experience.
The overall construction of this massager is quite solid, with a rubberized body and the heavy metal rollerballs that you find in the Moji 360. The Mini Moji is designed to get into smaller spots and to be more travel friendly. The construction seems as good as with the full-sized model, so you should expect a long lifespan.
When I reviewed the 360, a few people mentioned that they only used the massager over clothing to make sure it didn’t pinch skin or hair. I didn’t notice this as an issue with the 360, but I did notice that there was a little more hair pulling with the mini massager. I’d recommend starting with clothing on and then see how you feel about going bare skin.
Overall, I really liked this little massager. The flexible grip allows you to really focus your massage on what needs it most, and the different sized rollers let you regulate the pressure and depth of the massage. My only small complaint was that if you’re too vigorous with the Moji Mini, the front end will curl under. Not a big deal, just breaks the stride. I found you could moderate this by making sure you’re applying constant pressure across the front of the massager. This generally prevented it from rolling.
This is a good, easy to use, and easy to regulate hand massager. This won’t do all the work of the Moji 360, or a foam roller, or a stick massager, but it’s a good addition if you already own these other tools.
