4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely and relaxing..., 23 Aug. 2012
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 previously had the HoMedics SBM-500HA-3GB 2-in-1 Back and Shoulders Massager Cushion with Heat http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/guidelines/product-links.html[[ASIN:B001ESK8EA HoMedics SBM-500HA-3GB 2-in-1 Back and Shoulders Massager Cushion with Heat] which I bought a couple of years ago as I love massage chairs and that was a really affordable version which doesn't take up much space.
This Technogel massage chair is generally very good, it differs in the other one in that the upholstery is softe]r and the power of massage on the shiatsu and rolling is a little gentler.
It has very similar settings however where it lacks slightly compared to the other model, is that it doesn't provide full shoulder and adjustable height for shoulder massage which is a pity. I particularly like this, but then I guess everyone has their own preferences, and the SBM-500HA model allows you to turn on and off the shoulder settings so thereby gives a bit more control.
Where it appears to be an improvement is the more "lifelike" massage sensation because it is softer and has a slightly different rolling pattern. It also has the optional vibration setting which does give added benefit however at the cost of being quite noisy which may annoy those of you that want a quiet massage.
All in all a lovely item, and I do feel quite relaxed having used it - you can also put these "chairs" flat on the floor and massage calves with them (although not really advised in the booklet) but good for those who run and cycle a lot.
Only drops a star on the less control/less shoulder massaging capability. It is prettier than its predecessors though!
