This massaging eye mask offers relief from headaches and insomnia — and it's 60% off
Few things can ruin a day quite like a migraine can. When it hits, it hits hard — and you're left struggling to get anything else accomplished until the pain lets up. Even then, the mental fog left behind by a migraine can make something as simple as cooking dinner a chore. While everyone who struggles with migraines gets relief in different ways, some find relief from massage. The Renpho Eye Massager is a fan-favorite on Amazon — and it's currently 60% off.
Renpho Eye Massager
The Renpho Eye Massager uses both heat and massage to help ease migraine pain.
There are a few possible ways these elements can help with migraines, Medhat Mikhael, M.D., pain management specialist and medical director at the Spine Health Center at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, Calif., tells Yahoo Life. "A lot of people feel that some of the main triggers of migraine are stress and lack of sleep," he says. "Massage can be a preventive measure. If you get a massage regularly, your stress may be relieved, you may sleep better and your triggers of migraine don't happen."
When you're actually in the throes of a migraine episode, massaging the top of the back of your neck may help ease the pain, Mikhael says. However, some people may get relief from massage around the eyes during a migraine, while others may find it's too much.
As for heat, Mikhael says that it can help relax muscles that can feed into migraine pain. And, like massage, it may be helpful to apply it to the top of the back of your neck during a migraine episode. Otherwise, applying heat around your eyes may be helpful for allowing you to relax, he says.
But back to this particular mask ... it's essentially like a personal masseuse tending to your temples as you recline and listen to soothing sounds. It can even play music through a Bluetooth connection and add heated oscillating pressure and percussion massage.
The headband is adjustable to help get that just-right fit, and it folds into a more compact design for easy portability.
A whopping 12,000 fans have given this massager a perfect review, sharing that it's helped with everything from helping them relax before bed to soothing tired eyes to giving relief when bad headaches strike.
One five-star reviewer wrote: "It helps me sleep. I put it on before I attempt to sleep, and it relaxes my eyes, which helps tremendously. My eye muscles have been so stressed they make sleeping difficult. This machine has helped me so much ... I'm grateful to have it. When I wake up in the middle of the night, and can't get my eyes to relax, I use this for 15 minutes and go back to sleep. It's a literal lifesaver."
"Can't live without it," wrote another verified buyer. "This eye massager cured my insomnia as well as my vestibular migraines. It takes my migraine away at the start. I love the heating and vibration on my eyes."
"You guys … I never take the time to make reviews… but this thing…. It is next level," said a reviewer who described the Renpho gadget as incredible. "My headache is gone. Not only does it give you gentle heat and eye rubs …. It also massages your temples, which is a total soft spot for me. I’m in awe. I feel so relaxed. The pressure is so perfect. How they made this thing feel like hands rubbing my head, is just such a mystery. I’m so excited I found this. Absolutely get it if you have eye pain and strain … and for headache, anxiety relief."
Again, this mask is 60% off right now, but this deal won't last. Snatch up your own personal eye massager at a hefty discount while you still can.
