    I tried these at airports, health spas and at the display areas of Debenhams and House of Fraser before deciding we needed one at home. Great decision - it provides great back massages. The lower back shiatsu massage with heat is fantastic. I get lower back ache and the heat makes a big difference so would recommend paying the slight extra for this function. The shoulder massage is OK but not essential - with hindsight we didn't need it and it rarely gets used. It is very hard to get the height of the shoulder massage just right - too high and it does nothing, too low and it is painful. Some people find the feel of the back rollers too hard, but the manufacturers recommend using a folded up towel between your back and the chair for a bit of extra padding if that's the case. You can adjust the width of the back rollers so that the massage is hitting the correct areas no matter what your size, which is one of the reasons it works so well.

    Ordered item on Christmas Eve after reading some comments on it. It arrived today and I must say..... its wonderful.
    I am writing this review sitting on it while ahhhing and ooohhhing (trying to be quiet) and my only concern is that I may not be able to leave it for the next week or so...
    So easy to put together, yet so hard to let go of. Its like having a private massage session at home, without having to endure the messy oil.
    My husband and I may have to put together a rota for using it... sorry for going on and on, but this item is a bliss.

    On a technical note - so glad we chose this model, as it enables us to adjust both shoulder and width of massage balls individually. My husband is 6'4'' and I am 5'6'' and both feel the back massage cushion meets our needs.

    Happy new year!

    My wife and I have both suffered with back problems and occasional bouts of sciatica for a number of years. This particular model is capable of reaching down to the lower vertebrae and can be focused on massaging the precise point of discomfort. It is also very useful in relieving tension in the shoulder muscles and can be easily adjusted to concentrate on muscle knots that one may have (and not even be aware of!). The full range of shiatsu massage runs from the very lowest vertebrae all the way up to the shoulders. It also has a roller massage option for the lower/middle back but neither of us have found this function to be of value, although others may have differing views.

    I have read elsewhere that the massager is too aggressive. We have found that simply by moving one's back in or out on the seat cushion can easily achieve a comfortable roller pressure. We have also found that the heat option offers a pleasant, soothing sensation.

    As this isn't a small, lighweight item, we keep the massager permanently set-up on a dining room chair adjacent to power socket.

    Whilst not silent in operation, it certainly insn't obtrusive. We have directly compared this device to one of the hand-held kneeder/masssagers available elsewhere on Amazon and found it significantly quieter.

    A final note but worthy of mention is that both of us have noticed that, immediately after using the massager, we feel a lot more supple and generally alert. This could explain why the instructions recommend that it is should not be used immediately before going to bed.

    All in all, we find this is a genuine therapeutic aid and we would certainly recommend it to anyone with back problems, but I suggest that one seeks medical advice beforehand.

    I'm a complementary therapist by trade and a bit skeptical about all these 'massage' type mats etc. However, I was recently in a department store and sat in this massage chair which was on display for customers to try for 10 mins while a friend was shopping. Boy did it hurt! I'd suffered with my back on and off for years and like most people just moaned a bit and got on with life. When I got up I felt very different almost energised a day or so later niggles that you forget are there had eased. So I got one, its brilliant, I use it 2-3 times a week and it works, I absolutly recommend it, money well spent.

    I am 5ft 7inches.

    I bought it for lower back pain, and also because I like my shoulders massaged.

    Like others, I tried this in a shop before I bought. I was impressed by the force of the massage. It doesn't tickle, it MASSAGES. That is why I bought it.

    The main limitation is that the entire back section is rigid and flat, so it does not fit your back. As a consequence, when the massage moves along your back, it increases/decreases contact. This makes you subconsciously squirm to fit it all the time, rather than relaxing in to it.

    Another thing is that the movement is so regular that you get used to it very quickly. If you can get both the shoulder and the back sections working at the same time, they are slightly out of step, on my one at any rate, which varies the movement enough to keep it feeling fresh. But it is hard to get the shoulder section working OK (see later).

    On "auto-pilot" it zoomed up-and-down my back much too quickly for me. I like it to work slowly, so that it "finishes" a bit before moving on. So I inch it up-and-down manually for fifteen minutes. That scuppers the nice idea of switch-on-and-forget-about-the-controls.

    Another niggle is that the controls and the roller position reset each time you use it, so you have to set it up every single time. For me, that means pressing six buttons and then manually positioning the two massage rollers again.

    The heaters, which are on the massage rollers, work a bit through light clothing such as a tea-shirt. But you need to pull up your clothing and show it a bare back to get the best out of the heaters. Not something for the office.

    I agree with other reviewers that the shoulder section is awkward enough to put you off using it.
