Recently our older, base model Shiatsu chair massager gave up after much use. We decided to move up to the model with the additional massage for upper back/shoulders, are we glad we did - AWESOME!
It is important to read the instruction manual - "lean into the massager with a MILD pressure", let the massager do the work. Also STOP if it feels like your back has had enough this time. For the upper shoulder massage keep the massager above the shoulder blades in the upper back, lean into it with a light, mild pressure - the stress relief is welcome and AMAZING!
This isn't your typical vibrating massager. It feels like someone's actual hands pressing hard into your muscle tissue. It seems a little hard at times. I've never had an actual massage, but I've always heard afterward it can make you a little sore. I wasn't sore after using it, but it's a pretty intense massage. You can keep it adjusted on a particular area. I like the lower back. We bought it for my parents as a Christmas present and everyone ended up using it. We are thinking about getting one for ourselves. It is kind of expensive, but it defintely feels good if you have muscle tightness or other back and shoulder problems. We definitely recommend it if you can afford the $150-200 price range. The remote seemed a little confusing, but I didn't look at the instructions. I think with reading them and using it a few times, you'll figure it out pretty easily.
The massager is just fabulous. It can be easily programmed to target a specific area. The heat function makes it even better. We both find back discomfort is eased after using the massager for 15 minutes. I should also mention how relaxing it is. Everyone should have one of these if only for rest and relaxation!!!
I saw this item displayed @ BBB and tried it out. Of course it was the most expensive one out of the three but it was the only one that actually deep tissue massages...that I've seen. They display it in an office chair so you pretty much control the supplied pressure you want. I am 6' and the neck massage is a little too low unless you sit low in the seat. What I really liked about this product is the mid to lower back range. I am an athlete and it really works out the knots like a deep tissue massage would. Those of you who say "it hurts"...come on, get a backbone!!!
I have wanted something like this for a long time. I tried at a store, but also loved the extra option of shoulder massage. The wide variations of massage
options, plus the heat are great.
As for the longevity of this product, I cannot say, but it is wonderful, at this point. For value I say it is great considering what one might pay for a massage these days. It relaxes me, after a long days work.....
Homedics has come a long way in my opinion.
lay down on the massage cushion,works better than put on the chair .
This product replaces my old Shiatsu Massager with only back massaging. I wore that one out. I love the back heat and spot options. The neck massager is a bit high for me since I'm only 5'3", and I have to sit on some pillows for it to work, but it's nice to have the combination back and neck massaging in one product. I would definitely recommend this product.
Product does exactly what it says it will do but, not really fitted for a short person.
This chair have ease my aching back/muscles and the value is worth my pain
This product gives a very nice massage in the comfort of your own home!
I purchased this and was so excited! I read rave reviews and thought finally! Well I set it up, and boy was I disappointed. The shoulder/neck part did not reach my shoulders or neck and I am a tall person almost 6 foot. It was just a tad too high. The back part was too strong and really hurt my back. In fact it hurt for three days afterwards. Thinking I was just a whimp I had my husband try it when he got home. He said it hurt his back too. I ended up taking it back. Try it before you buy it.
the pressure points on the pad have u sit against a hard metal poked out material which hurts how can any one get relaxed when off the bat it hurts you
This Homedics massage cushion made mine and my wife's backs more sore after using it rather than relaxing us or loosening muscle tightness.
It doesn't work at all. Open the box, set it up, push the power button...nothing. Push the demo button...nothing. What a disappointment!
It is great! It lowers to my shoulders, it does what it is inted it to. It is great!
tried many this one rocks. no back massager is prefect but this comes very close. if it is not hitting the right spot,just scoot down a lil or up,then it will be right.so sry but i dont get the review about missing spaces. overall we are very happy with this product!
A great little pick me up for an aching back & tight neck!
awesome back rub with heat definitely worth it
I found this product to work very well. I was skeptical at first, as I have tried other back massagers before. I like that it can do both the shiatsu massage and the rollers and that it also does the shiatsu massage on your shoulders. I'm very short, so the shoulder massager barely reaches my shoulders, but it does. I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to others.
This product is wonderful (so far). I purchased this type of product (another brand) October 2009 and it only lasted two months before it started to malfunction. I love all the settings. The shoulder massage is great. The Shiatsu option and rolling option is great!! Love the heat. The different settings are a plus!! The massages are almost as good as the equipment used in my chiropractor's office which cost thousands of dollars!! This is the greatest!! I recommend to everyone who wants a wonderful and very relaxing message. I use it in the evenings before I go to bed and it helps me sleep like a baby!!
