Our inventor and physiotherapist - Wes Marshall BSc HONS MCSP SRP
"I invented necksaviour because I wasn't happy to recommend any existing products on the market. I wanted a product that people could use to maintain progress between sessions, and something that was super easy to use and portable so that they could get the benefit when not able to attend physiotherapy, either due to cost, convenience or travel.
I wanted a product that patients with ongoing neck pain and headaches could use regularly to keep pain at bay and reduce their use of medication.
The ‘light bulb’ moment was receiving a fragile item in a box with packing foam. Trying to push the foam back into the box after removing the item I realised powerful but soft foam was….and there was my solution!
70+ prototypes later necksaviour was born and has gone on to win three design excellence awards including a medical one."
Fast forward 5 years and over $1 million in sales necksaviours have now created happier necks and reduced headaches in 80+ countries!
Why use necksaviour?
We aren’t very kind to our necks.
We spend too long looking at our phones, sitting poorly at work or at home, driving and even some leisure activities such as gym training, swimming and cycling can take their toll.
It’s no wonder that 50% of adults suffer with neck pain at some point each year. Even muscle spasm and tension headaches are associated with this. Pain relief doesn’t always have to come in the form of a pill…
So be kind to your neck with necksaviour.
necksaviour stretches (traction) your neck giving relief from neck pain and headaches.
They are incredibly portable, comfortable and easy to use. All you have to do is bend it, relax on it and feel the stretch!
How does necksaviour work?
It’s so simple! necksaviours are made of foam and are flat. When you bend them they try to go back to being flat. If you place a necksaviour behind your neck when it’s folded it can’t go flat because your head and shoulders stop that happening. The forces created result in a stretch and an improved alignment of your neck. This feels great and can be very therapeutic :)
The exceptional quality foam from which our clever little saviour is made from can be used time and time again. It could significantly reduce the need to see a therapist for treatment, therefore saving time and money.
It can also be used to maintain improvement between sessions or when it’s not possible to see your therapist.
