I have always wondered what all the hype was about the shiatsu full body massagers. Well now I know! This device is AMAZING! I cannot even begin to tell you how much better my body feels.
The overall design is nice. It is not cheaply made at all. The controls are very easy to read and in a nice size font. That helps me immmensily!
Now, you do have to prepare yourself for the intensity of it. It is not some gentle vibrating device. This Pad digs deep into your muscles with vigor. If you are a more sensitive person, such as my boyfriend, then what you need to do to help lighten the pressure of it is place a blanket or sheet over it and then let it work on you. I do think that they could make it a bit more comfortable or add some cushion to it, so it doesn't dig in so much. Overall, I love a good massage, so it works great for me!
The heat function is what puts this over the top in my book! Who doesn't love heat to help relax your body!
One thing you need to be aware of, is this has a bit of weight to it. It makes for a quality product but it's not super portable. But, on the plus side, keep the box! Why, you ask! Because it has a sturdy handle built into it. Great for transporting it wherever you want to go.
This came packaged brilliantly in a beautiful box, worthy of making it a spectacular gift for that special someone. You won't go wrong with this as a gift for yourself or someone else! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
