Relaxing and addictive,
This review is from: Homedics Shiatsu Smooth Natural Touch Back Massager with Technogel (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'd previously used and benefited from a Homedics Shiatsu cushion, so was eager to see how the experience translated to a larger, 'full back' system. In short, it's very good. The Shiatsu motion is achieved with two circular moving balls that provide a pleasing force. They really do knead into your body, it's not a gentle process but it certainly has the effect of working out and muscular knots and aches. I personally didn't find the rolling option to be much good, but some people might find it relaxing.
The heat option, and the option to pause the movement of the massage on a particular spot are both worthwhile additions. The wired remote control is a nice touch, giving you the opportunity to change the action mid-massage.
One star knocked off for the fact it doesn't fully massage up to the neck/shoulders, otherwise it would've been a solid 5 star product. If you would benefit from a lower or mid-back massage then this product is throughly recommended.
