Review Content Thumbs-UP After reading about this massager, I decided to get it - my first use was amazing and after few weeks with daily use, I say, it is really amazing - just use it as it is described and you will enjoy it - dont expect it to be the same as a $3000 massaging chair and youll be good to go. Very nice product at a reasonable price. Excellent relaxation for the busy executive. Keeps you feeling refreshed during the workday. The soothing heat and gentle massage reduces stress and invigorates the senses. A must have for anyone sitting in front of a computer or desk for long hours. Delivered as Promised As good as advertised Great Machine! Ive been needing a device like this for so long, with the heat and air massage, and finally I have it. Thank you Sharper Image! great product twice daily for back discomfort instant relief, last several hours Bought this for my mother as a gift and she likes it. My mother notice some relieve of lower back pain within 10 minutes. With a touch of a bottom she can activate heat which helps soothe away pain in her back. This is not hard to use and is durable. Almost as good as having your own masseuse Ive been really pleased with this product Great stress reliever I bought this as a gift for my husband but everyone in my home has been using it, including my sisters and their families who are visiting us for the holidays. My cousin tried it and is so impressed that he is now purchasing one for himself. Using this product is definitely a good way to de-stress after a tiring day. I wish Sharper Image would also invent a product that focuses on the neck and shoulders. Massage Better than the mall massage. love This product is easy to use. I had a similar product from a popular company and found it painful to use, this one has a barrier you can put down that makes it perfect for me. Im 5 7" and 150 it hits me in the right palaces, I got it for my middle and lower back from the work I do. Its perfect for me, not to hard not to soft. It really feels wonderful Twice a day. I am pain free afterward. Excellent product Wife has very bad back and this massager, with the air and heat is wonderful. Really makes her back feel much better. The best massage cushion I purchased this as a gift for my wife because she always had the back pain. This product compact, durable, lightweight, easy to control, attractive design as well, main point is it working too well. My wife like it very much. Thanks Sharper Image Thorough and deep massage I was prepared for disappointment since my first choice gift, an infra-red massager, was off-limits due to Dads pacemaker; but this massager delivers a surprisingly deep and thorough massage. My dad, who strained his back muscles some time ago, says he will use it every day. He was pleased to find the heat and air compression features along with the massage. Its easy to carry and to strap to a chair. Since it was a recent gift, he cant yet comment on durability. Awesome product Purchsed for my husband that has bad back and hip pain. Limits his visits to the Chiropractor for massage. Wowzahs I use this just about daily. It feels a great on sore muscles after a long day of being on your feet and working out. The infrared feature is awesome! It is the next best self live investment you can give yourself for an active lifestyle. great massager works great Amazing! I bought this as a Christmas gift to my boyfriend with chronic back pain. After just a couple of days of use he has noticed relief in his back. The rotating balls are strong and really give the deep massage he needs. Not to mention I get to use it myself just for pleasure! Heaven in my Chair I use this almost every day, sometimes twice a day. It is the next best thing to a real massage. Great for relaxing after a long day or a great quick break in the middle of the day. THE BEST if you have lower back pain I bought this for my mother as a gift since she always has lower back pain. Since buying this, she uses it everyday, and is completely in love with it. Her pain has decreased and she says it feel like it getting to all "good spots" and the kneading plus heat is so relaxing. Definitely would recommend. most amazing massage cushion ever I have been having trouble with my back at work so i decided to buy this to help. It is a LITTLE loud, but if you work in a secluded area no one will be able to hear it. I used it at work and then took it home with me and my back feels awesome today. the heat is my favorite part. Relief at last! Tried product at a store but thought it was too pricy. My wife got it for me as a holiday present. Best present! Several massage cycles provided very substantial relief to a chronic hip/lower back problem I had for over a year. Its effectiveness was very surprising and the relief has continued with 20 minute use each day. Im thrilled with this product and hope it continues working. The massage action can be very intense and is not always comfortable - but it does work. Shiatsu Massage Cushion. The system is VERY hard touse unless the chair is 90 degree - it is very hard to use in an office chair. THe control storage bag is usuless mounted with the opening facing backward - tried it in 2 chairs and it is inexcessable sewn that direction. Wieh it also has upper let message or even vibration - the old HoMedic one I had had this. very nice would buy again use for both upper and lower back thats a very nice job I wish it was real high round the neck Massage Cushion The product provides all of the satisfaction I was looking for Great product My new Air and Shiatsu massage cushion has become a family favorite. My son in law uses it every time he visits. My grandchildren get a kick out of the heated element, and I just plain love it. Its portability in key to my enjoyment. My back appreciates this massage! I have thoroughly enjoyed using this product. It is very relaxing after a busy day. Spoiled the surprise I didnt know that this didnt ship in a plain box. It was a surprise gift for my husband and he came home and found it outside where the delivery man left it. Spoiled the surprise. I do love this product though. Great Product ! This was a gift for my husband; as part of his exercise regimen. I enjoy my 15 minutes of meditation. Controls are easy. Fits perfect in his favorite chair. Worth every penny! My husband LOVES this massage cushion! The massage heads are perfect - not too strong that it hurts your back. The warmth adds comfort. Puts both of us to sleep in a matter of minutes. Love it!!! HEAVENLY!! We use this amazing product on our comfortable couch or in the home office chair. It NEVER fails to relax tightness!! The heating feature is Absolutely Wonderful!! Great shiatsu massager! This is a keeper! I purchased so many massager, by far this is the best !!! Worth the money AWESOME This is great. A fantasric buy. Totally worth it. The massage feels great and the heat element puts it over the top. If one went for a massage once a week it would cost at least $60 a pop. Meanwhile one can use this everyday if you want at a fraction of the price with the same results! Excellent Comfort Both my husband and I use this after we get home from work or after a work out. It is the next best thing to a hands on massage. The heat and shiatsu are the best features. The compression is also nice. NICE Had tried it at a relatives house. Liked it and got one for our family. I would definitely recommend this produc Set down relax and try to stay awake! great massage-slept like a 72 yr old bab great--love it and slept like a baby Powerful massage I purchased this as a gift for my husband. It arrived quickly (before the estimated delivery date). He loves it (as do I). Weve only been using it a few days so Ill update this review if anything changes but it does exactly what the product description says it will. It needs to be in a deep chair that reclines to get the full benefits. There are cheaper units out there but they dont come close to this one (weve had several). If youre looking for a back massager to "work the kinks out" order this . It works! The gift everyone will wish was theirs This is worth every dollar. The entire family benefits from the gift. Hope you add an attachment that goes down to the feet. :-) Absolutely, wonderful! Love it!!!!! Sharper image was very punctual in my delivery and this product is totally worth every penny. Back Relief It is set up all the time in my office chair... when I feel the stress mounting too high... I take a few minutes to relax and get a quick massage. Its perfect. Back ache This massager works so well that you could almost fall asleep using it. It is a little aggressive if your muscles are really sore, but it is nice for my wife and I after a long day at work. Such a relief Great to use at the end of a busy day. Shiatsu massage is wonderful but the air doesnt do much, and I mentioned earlier that the heat isnt intense enough to feel. Great product, terrible shipping I ordered this product as a surprise Christmas gift for my husband. Imagine my surprise when the unboxed package showed up on my front porch and my husband picked it up. Surprise over. I looked like someone just pulled it off a shelf and slapped a shipping label on it. Also the box that it was in was split from top to bottom. Fortunately, the massage cushion was not damaged. The product itself is fantastic and my husband loves it. The problem I have is with sloppy shipping. Time out for a nice rub He loves it OOO La La !! I designed my guest bedroom as a "spa" room. The only problem now is that I spend more time in it than in the master bedroom. Note: This product works best with a chair that has a deep seat. A MUST Get Massager As with most people, I read reviews of this product that were mostly positive and so I purchased it - after using the massager for few weeks, I found the reviews were right and more - I recommend this massager for its reliability, design, and effectiveness - Note: the massager does activate muscles that were not active and like all exercise, one feels sore afterwards, but youll feel great after your 3rd use. Instant Relief My husbands face shows the instant relief he gets when he first leans back on this great massager. He has had a bad back for years and this is the first time he has been able to get any relief after a hard days work. Thank you, Sharper Image. Strong hands I use the massager in my home office chair while working. It keeps me alert and relaxed all at the same time. Feels like real hands! Feels great on lower and upper back. Good cushioning. Just What I Needed I use this after after a long shift at the hospital,my work hours do not allow for me to make it to a massage therapist daily. This seat is heated!!! what a great added benefit and it digs deep unlike the normal shaking and rattling of other massage devices. Does the trick Comfortable design. Would be better if there were different levels of intensity. Best relief from achIng back! Have chronic low back pain. Helps to relieve it. I use it while watching TV. The massage coushion is just what I expected. I love it. After a long day this is best to wind down. Great product! I would highly recommend this product. I had a back injury at work and continued to work several hours a week. Using this at least twice a day, morning and night, it helped relax my muscles. It has really helped me with recovering from my back injury (amongst other treatment options). It was not what I expected. I like that it goes up on my neck. I do not like because I can not stop at my particular ache zone. 15 minutes a day does wonders I recieved this as a gift from my husband, and absolutely love it. I use it almost every day for 10-15 minutes and it really relaxes my back. I absolutely love the heat feature, and I like that you can set it for upper or lower back only. Great product! Nice Good for daily use would definitely buy this product again My son has a neurological disorder called Sensory Processing Disorder. Massage is highly recommended for these kids so that they can get the proper sensory input. Sitting in the massage chair for about 10 minutes before school helps him focus and regulate for the day. This is so much better than taking him somewhere and paying a fortune for a massage. He can play on his Ipad or watch TV while sitting in this chair.
