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!
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 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.Read more ›
