I bought this product at a moment of desperation- and I've got to say, I'm really impressed.
I suffer from Fibromyalgia, Sciatica and restless legs. All are difficult to handle if I'm having a 'bad day'. My fiance had recommended the Homedics range- and I had previously been somewhat sceptical, after trying numerous useless 'massage chairs' which just literally vibrate. I decided to read the reviews of the product and it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.
I didn't want to shell out too much for a product that I wasn't sure would actually benefit me - but now I am considering going for the full chair! The balls that rotate are fantastic on my back when my muscles are tense and sore. When my sciatica is the problem, placing the cushion at the base of my back really helps to relieve the pain - and after 15 mins, I am generally able to move more. When its restless legs that are the problem, a few minutes placed under my thigh also does the trick.
For anyone looking for a quick and easy solution to relieve tight and sore muscles, I'd recommend this any day. Especially if, like me, you don't want to shell out for a whole chair! It's small enough not to get in the way also, and the lead is plenty long enough if you're not that close to a socket.
