Review: HoMedics Shiatsu Massage Cushion

I was pleased when I got this in the post to review as I'm a woman that really enjoys massages, so couldn't wait to put this to the test, I was like an excited young child haha!

This massager fitted onto my dining room chair, with a strap and velcro to keep the back in place. The seat part of this is a cushion so bare in mind it doesn't do any massaging, would be strange if it did, it just keeps the whole thing in place basically.
The massager is covered in a plush, nylon material which is black and grey, so therefore suit for men or women. With it being black and grey I find it very smart looking. The massager is quite heavy as the motor and massager are robust, but it isn't too heavy, a slim woman like me could lift it no problem. This is really easy to store away as it doesn't take up much room, I currently have it underneath my bed.

Once set up there is a hand controller, which actually looks like a mini TV remote control, attached by a piece of wire. I really enjoy the rolling massage technique which moves the balls smoothly up and down the back relaxing as it goes. To me it felt like it was aligning my back, a great feeling!
My younger sister Amy enjoys coming over to my house now to use this massager, her favourite function is the shiatsu massage where the balls rotate in a small circle, making a kneading action as they travel up and down the length of your back. You can also add heat to this action which quickly heats up to a nice hot temperature but not too hot to the point where it burns you.

I would highly recommend this as a Christmas present for a loved one, especially someone who suffers with a bad back.

At the moment you can get it for a bargain price in Argos for only £84.99.

I was sent this massager for the purpose of this review
