Review Content Exceeded my expectations I bought this product for my boyfriend that has constant back and shoulder soreness due to stress. As soon as the product came in, he opened it up and gave it a go. Immediately he was loving the shiatsu rollers and heating component. He spends long hours at the computer at work and at home. He plans on using it most during those hours. The product looks great, has a pocket for the remote, and an additional pocket for the carry bag it comes with. My only complaint is that the product was shipped in its original box. No harm was done to the product, but the possibility of a damaged product is much higher when not placing it another box. Oh, sooooo good! My husband got me this massage cushion for Christmas. I was so excited when I received it at my office. I wasted no time and set it up immediately. It was easy. I was able to enjoy it right away. I invited my officemates to try it and they, too, loved it. Not happy at all! It was great until I turned it off for a few minutes. Went to turn it back on and the power button just flashes now. I got to use it once and that was it. Didnt even have it for 24 hours and it broke. I was expecting more from a product that I paid $200+ for. Purchased for a Christmas present I plan on using the product during the lazy evenings as I relax for a while. Awesome!!! It is very nice to use especially at the end of the day of work. Cure for a sore back Easy to use and just what I needed. Relieves tension After a workout. Desperately needed without leaving home Used almost daily to relieve stress, relaxing done in your own home while able to watch tv, read, take a nap. Ooooooh...... aaaaaaaaaaaaah.... Its fantastic. Nice Product You will specially like the Shiatsu mode when you use this product. The option to select Full, Lower, or Upper back is also very useful. Fabulous! My customers love this!! Shiatsu Back Massager So far so good. Just been a day since I started using it though. Competely Satisfied I take my shower when I get up in the morning and than spend 30 min onthe unit.During the day or after mowing the lawn I spend 15 to 30 min on it.At bed time while watchind late nite tv I spend 15 to 30 min on it.Before and after golf I spend 15 to 30 min on it.This thing is amazing.Ive had back problems for 2 or 3 years and am 74 years old and I feel better when I use this than when I spend 30.00 at the chiropractor.If and when this thing goes up in smoke I will definately buy another one. Great for relieving stress and back pain My son purchased this for me as a Christmas gift because I often have backaches due to stress. I really enjoy using it and now so does the rest of the family. The Shiatsu massage with heat really relaxes tight aching muscles and relieves stress. Chiropractor in a box I use it to reduce back pain while watching TV; no, the back pain is not caused by watching politicians! Simply Marvelous! I have Fibromyalgia and have constant knots in between my shoulder blades. I have had this product for one week and use it 3-4 times a day. It does give a comparable deep tissue massage and the heat feature feels good too. It is good that you have the choice of Shiatsu massage and Rolling. Using both has been very therapeutic for me. Was very pleasantly surprised. A friend is getting one for her husband. AWESOME !!! This is an AWESOME product!!! I gave it as a gift to my daughter, who gets terrible knots in her back....she LOVES it and uses every day!!! Great Portable Massager! This massager is great! Portable, yet it is able to get high up on the shoulders and low down on the lower back. I like the Shiatsu and Roller option and the ability to add heat is great! It is portable and can be set up and broken down in just a few seconds. If you are looking for a portable massager, I highly recommend this model. I love this !! I use it for my troubling back while I watching TV. And I bought another one for my friend as well. Would recomend it for people who is working phisically.It does relaxes and helps with aching muscles. Great product Great for a deep massage of the back. As with most massage devices it is difficult to massage the tops of the shoulders, but this product does a great job on everything else. Well made, easy to operate, and will do exactly as advertised. I would purchase again. Great Massager! Needs a little padding The massager is very thorough but can be harsh at times. Needs more padding between the rotating balls and the user. Exellent Product Who do not have occasional back pain? While a professional Therapist should be seen for back aches, personally, minor muscles aches might be relieved by using this amazing product. With the adjustable width of the massage rollers, you can reach almost all parts of the back during a massage. With this device at hand you need not make an appointment for theraphy. Just plug it in and you are on you way to a good theraputic experience. Excellent produc! Wonderful Product Wonderful massage and heat. By far the best massage chair pad I have ever used. Remarkably strong massage and heat! Rollers are stronger than expected Im a high school athlete, and wanted a good strong massage for my really sore muscles. I never expected a massage chair mat to be able to give such a strong massage! Its almost a little too strong on spots that arent really sore, but its great on the really sore areas. I like the spacing of the rollers, and am overall very happy with the chair. What a gift! Wonderful rub-down after shopping. Love having option of either "rolling" or shiatsu! Relaxing This back massager is amazing. It makes any chair in the house, the best chair in the house. Ouch My Hubbie go this for me and I am still in pain. Used often with pleasure A great relaxing massage. I favor the shiatsu setting but am glad to have the roller option for a change of pace. Heat is heavenly. Am geographic bachelor - wife got hers first and I couldnt resist getting my own. Minor point - I am tall 76" and ideal max fit is for someone around 72". Oh, works fine with a 220 to 110 transformer. Broke within the first 30 days I loved it until it stopped and wont turn back on with the first 30 days! I was pushing the "width" button when it stopped. Now no lights turn on on the controller and the rollers are frozen in the middle. Great product I am extremely pleased w this product. It is a great replacement for a 90 dollars an hour massage at the spa and the heated elements only add to it. For a person who works in an office this is a great way to take care of your aching back and sore muscles. -- In Need of a Massage Back Massager My daughter uses this massager, and loves it. OMG! This is awesome!!!!! I didnt think it would be so powerful, but this thing really massages. Then, when I kick on the heat, I never want to get up. The remote is nice, clear and easy to use. Fits easily onto any chair or I even use it on the couch. Great product. This product came highly recommended. He uses it in his office, since he spends 10 to 12 hours a day at his desk. It has given him relief from severe arthritic back pain. I really liked this back massager. I use the product to help with back pain. It is easy to use. Outstanding product! I sit for a massage at least 3x a week and as someone with constant back pain, this product has helped me tremendously. bought 2- 1for me & 1 for my son. luv it It make anyone using it feel wonderful !!!! Worth the money My trips to the massage parlor were getting too expensive. I knew I needed an at- home solution. I shopped all over for a massage chair and this was the best choice. I need a deep massage chair to release the tension in my back and this is it. With the added heat, it helps relax those difficult muscles so I can relax. Time to Relax A great way to relax after a stressful day! Great massage therapy. very satisfied I bought this for my Husband - he loves it - he is not a big fan of heat but with this product it is the perfect amount of heat with massage. I personally am not a big fan of these types of products as they ususally are too intense for me and end up hurting me vs making me feel better but the controls on this let you choose what is comfortable for you. Nice Massager This is a nicer massager than others weve had. The SPOT MASSAGE feature is particularly nice. The heat works well and isnt overpowering. I hope it lasts! Miracle in a box My Fiance has chronic shoulder pain and limited mobility due to an old injury. He often couldnt sleep because of the pain. I bought him this massager and now he is able to sleep without pain and his range of motion has increased. This was a miracle find. Wonderful back massager When my lower back starts hurting I use the back massager and it really relieves the pain, I just love it! Effective for back tension Will work on couch but a more vertical chair back would be best. Width only adjusts in roller mode. In shiatsu mode it is a little wide for a small woman, it digs into the shoulder blades a bit but not something I cant work with. For the money I am happy with the purchase. I like it!!!! Keep up! Very great!!! We like it!!! Massager Thought it would be only a great gift, but turns out everybody loves it! WOW! Great massage without getting naked!!! Shiatsu Back Massager After a long day of standing on my feet at work, its great to come home and sit in the massage chair to get all the kinks out of my back. The heating element is a great touch too, it loosens up my back and applies just the right amount of pressure. A great gift that I will enjoy using for years to come. Great Massage - Great Price This product gives a great back massage and is easy to use. The Shiatsu option really relaxes the tense muscles very well. It is not quite the same as having a personal masseuse, but it is much more convenient and less expensive. 2nd Times a Charm? When we received the product it did not work. The company quickly provided a return shipping label. The only issue that I have with this process is that I could not get a replacement. I had to send the product back for a refund, and then I had to go to back to the website to start a new order (with new prices -- I could not get the product at the same price which I had originally purchased it.) Good, but like the Swedish Massage Chair I use the product almost daily. I enjoy a deep massage, and this is a lot cheaper than hiring someone to get the kinks out. That said, I had a Swedish Massage chair that finally broke, and it had eight rollers, rather than the four this one has, and it was much more thorough. Deep Massage and Relaxation Helps with sore muscles. Heat source especially helpful. Very good product I am on the road a lot and have a stressful job so this is a nice relaxer. surprisingly effective! This massager really gets into sore muscles, I love the heat function and the customizable features are great. My husband loves it too! My daughter thinks it massages too hard, but thats sort of the point of shiatsu, isnt it? Get the knots out of your back! My whole family including the children enjoy this! Excellent relaxer Long days at work make using it at home very nice. I would buy this product for my parents Very useful, it helps for a long day work!!! Great!!! My husband loves it! My husband said it makes his back feel better! Alex Enjoy the features of the massager. Its easy to strap in to any chair, easy to figure out the controls. Once you sit down, its hard to believe how good it is. Very nice deep massage Love using this when I get home from work , its a nice way to unwind, and warm up Too! This Shiatsu is wonderful. I like that you can pinpoint your exact problem area on your back. This thing is GREAT :o) I got this as a gift and really wasnt too sure of it. My back goes in and out like dog that drinks alot of water. Soon after receiving this gift, my back went out again. I used it before bed and it felt a little uncomfortable at first. Then, as the massage went on, it began to ease my back pain. I now use this massager anytime my back goes out, or after along day of work! Thank You Sharper Image, for the great item that you are selling. The best message at home! My husband looks forward to shoveling snow so that he can treat himself to a message afterwards! Great Massage Chair I love to use this product after a long night of partying. Its great to come home to and just relax. The pressure is perfect. The only suggestion I would make is maybe have it work a little wider to cover the entire back Sharper Image Deluxe Shiatsu Back Massager its ok.... feel like my unprofessional girl friend massage. ehh i got it for 160 didnt expected much LEGS TOO! I chose this spectacular massager due to its customizable features. The spot on feature is amazing. We dont have to wait until the massager returns to our own area of concern.We also lay our legs on top of it and it works wonderfully. My husband and I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to relax and have a massage in the privacy of your own home. Extremely soothing and effective. shiatsu back massager I do a lot of crafts and my muscles get very tense from concentration. This - I hope - will help me get my knots out. I am new to this so I might know more after some time of using the massager. This was a gift from my children.
