ShoulderFlex Massager Poses Strangulation Risk! Bambi The Masseuse Best Option

By Robert Paul Reyes

"After receiving a report of one death and one near strangulation, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising people to stop using the ShoulderFlex Massager, a home-use massager which massages the back, shoulder and neck while the patient is lying down on a flat surface.


The ShoulderFlex Massager, which is distributed by King International, consists of a portable massager that is placed below the neck, a memory foam pillow, a controller, and a sleeve (machine washable). It has a bar which rotates - the bar has removable fingers which one can adjust, depending on the area and depth of massage desired."


Clothing and hair can get caught in the device with very unpleasant consequences.

A gentleman of refinement, culture and polish would never consider buying a ShoulderFlex Massager or any other similar contraption.

When the world is too much with me and I need to relax and unwind, I patronize a fine establishment where a Bambi or a Kimmy will give me a therapeutic and sensual massage. Unlike the mechanical fingers of the ShoulderFlex Massager the masseuse`s fingers will caress me, instead of trying to choke me. (Unless I fail to leave an appropriate tip of course)

These ladies always strive to please the customer, they invariably ask me if there is something special that they can do for me. God bless them, that`s really taking customer service seriously.

Throw away your ShoulderFlex Massager, and patronize your friendly neighborhood massage parlor.
