    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!

    This is a really fantastic product. It gives you a really good massage. It's firm enough to make a difference, but not too hard. However, you can alter the pressure by just leaning in against it or away from it. It has a good variety of settings and it is relatively quiet. I have had some massages before (by a person) but they were pretty light and of course once you are done that's it. I love the fact that now I can have a massage when I like and I can vary the pressure and focus on certain points, plus add gentle warmth with the heat setting. I'd definitely recommend this product it is soooooo relaxing, almost orgasmic!!

    The only negatives I will give it are that it looks a bit ugly and cheap and it creaks a bit. I'm a little concerned about the build quality and if it will last. It does have a 2 year guarantee though. If you are a weighty person I would exercise caution using it as leaning too hard against it might cause you to damage it. I am 13 stone and I am a little worried of breaking it. I have been using it on my sofa though so perhaps if I were using it on a dining chair less of my body weight would be against it.

    I don't know if other models offer this but it would be nice if you could have just one side working at a time so you could turn your body to work on the side of your back without catching your spine on it (sitting in a straight position is fine, but it is limited to the central line of your back). I can still turn my body around and work on different side areas of my back, but I do have to be careful I don't lean against it in a way that it catches my spine with the other massage point.

    Again this is such a great product, a fantastic relaxation tool!

    I had this product for 2 years. The only problem was my neck and shoulders didn't fit properly to the chair

    Got this for my elderly mother. She uses it twice/thrice a day with the heated massage, and has no complaints. Being rather short, she doesn't get the benefit of the neck massage this machine offers, but other than that there are no complaints to report of.

    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.
