HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Back Massager

This is the real deal, the perfect way to experience the natural touch of a real massage therapist from the comfort of home. With no compromises on quality to maximise your stress relief, HoMedics introduces the next level of wellbeing technology with the new gel massage range.

Gel massage nodes

Soft yet firm, that’s how a real massage should feel. Set into our revolutionary massage mechanism, the gel massage nodes rotate, knead and roll over tight muscles.

By recreating the circular thumb action and palm-like feel of a shiatsu massage therapist, you can enjoy the blissful release and the ultimate relaxation.

Customisable comfort

There are 10 intensity programmes to choose from so you can mix up your treatment zone and type of massage. Choose between rolling, shiatsu and vibration massage – or all three.

Our traditional shiatsu technique is designed to knead and smooth over tense muscles. Found the right spot? Hit spot and enjoy targeted relief.

The rolling massage travels the full length of the back applying a continuous yet comfortably firm pressure in one movement to aid blood flow and relax the spine.

Ready to relax

The programmed controller means instant relaxation at the touch of a button. You can enjoy a full demo of the massager’s features and then start mixing and matching up to 10 massage programmes across 3 intensity levels. The soothing warmth function will introduce increasing heat throughout your massage, penetrating warmth into tired muscles.

The HoMedics Gel Back Massager is the perfect fit for most home and office chairs. The simple strapping system keeps the massager firmly in place; all that’s left for you to do is sit back and relax.

Customer Reviews
HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Back Massager with Heat + Remote is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as a pair of hands, almost. I was so looking forward to getting this and it didn’t disappoint. I have had back problems for years And find a good message really helps but I couldn’t get one every time I would have liked to. So when this arrived I set it up on my high back chair and had a look at the instructions and they are pretty easy to understand, there is really only 2 main settings with adjustments within them. You can adjust the heat setting or width of the rollers and also the height they go to and not forgetting the speed. It’s really rather easy. You tie the back piece with Velcro to the chair and sit on the padded area the control sits in a little pouch on the right hand side. I would run the demo to check out all the setting first then pick the one you like. Just sit back with your body weight no need to press against it and let the rollers do there work effortlessly. The rollers are excellent at getting into the little gaps and around the muscles up and down the spine into the shoulders. I’m 5ft 11ins and it’s not a problem to run the length of my back. It really is so good that you get shivers when it is massaging your back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product This massager was way better than expected. I have always been sceptical about the effectiveness of electric massagers but the real feel of the Shiatsu massage was quite astonishing. I have tried it on a number of different chairs, upright occassional chair, hardbacked computer chair, soft padded recliner (in the upright position) and all worked well. I suffer from lower back pain and the combination of heat and shiatsu massage has been very effective in alleviating the ache after a long day at work. The only downside is the automatic 15 minute cut off which usually elicits groans of "too soon" but it is probably the best feature of the machine as it is easy to lose track of time. Overall, a great product, well made and versatile. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great back massager Easy to install, with clear instructions. Comes securely boxed up with a sturdy box to store in. I used mine on my computer chair and it fits well on it. Great massaging feeling which was lovely and helped loosen my knots. The heating option was soothing and helped lessen the aches . The controls are easy to use and the massager is easy to keep clean. This would be a great asset to someone who gets muscular aches or pains and has helped my Fibromyalgia as it’s soothing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected. My wife and I have joint issues and this is a very good alternative to physio therapy treatments. It is very flexible with a wide range of treatments. My only issue is the lack of clear instructions on how to use it for best effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good and helpful This is such a good back massager with remote so you can use it to suit yourself. I was painting my ceiling and my back started aching very badly so instead of taking pain killers like ibuprofen I had 20 min on the massager and it felt so much better ever better with the heat.I would definitely been using this on regular intervals especially when I do anything sternous and not jump to taking painkillers all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love! I am in love with this product. It is so relaxing to use. Both settings are amazing and really help relieve tension like a real massage. The heating adds to this! Perfect for use at the end of a busy day while watching some tv!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not quite the real thing. Slightly disappointed to discover that the allen-key supplied to release the electrical cable on unpacking, was too small. The massager itself though seems well made and the instructions are clear and easy to understand. With the different combinations of programs, there’s bound to be one to suit you (my favourite is the whole back Shiatsu - although it doesn’t quite do my shoulders as I would’ve liked). Overall, a lovely addition to our living room but doesn’t quite replace the real thing!
