Customer Reviews
HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Portable Pillow is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable massager Brilliant massager and love the fact it doesn't need to be plugged in to be used. As I'm very impatient I gave the pillow a go straight out of the box and was surprised at how charged it was. There is the optional function of heat which is great and it doesn't get too hot. Absolutely love the gel kneaders and it does exactly what it needs to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is amazing After a long day of running around after a toddler this is amazing to use. The heat option is fantastic and really does help and soothe. It’s great that you can use it on different areas of the body especially the back, shoulder and neck. But it does also help with legs which it great too. It’s also great that you can take it with you anywhere as I had a previous back massager that had to be strapped into a chair and was also heavy so this travel massage pillow is absolutely fantastic!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for aches The My Review for HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Portable Pillow has been an absolute treat for my back, neck and even abdominal area. I work 9-5 spending my majority of that time sitting in an office chair with that said these chairs are anything but comfortable. I have found myself in ache and pain I got the message about a month now and it has been working a treat for my neck and also I am able to bring my back massager to work and put it behind me whilst I work and this helps with the aches and pain I normally would get from sitting all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep massager, great for neck and shoulders The good thing about this Shiatsu massaging pillow is that it's suitable for massaging any area of the back, shoulders or neck. Personally, as someone who works on a computer all day, it really helps loosen the tightness that builds up and burns in your shoulders. A 15-minute massage really kneads in hard, replicating a circular thumb movement that gets into the muscle to give a firm, relaxing massage. It might take some getting use to, but that way it is effective. It should also work with legs and calves too, but it seems better designed to work on the back area. It's also rechargeable and portable, so you can bring it with you anywhere - it's relatively small, easy to pack and light to carry. It's simple to use and requires no complicated set-up or instructions. It takes about 4 hours to recharge and you will get a couple of sessions with a full charge, or a full neck, shoulders and lower back lumbar session if you're really want a full massage workout and can take it. It can be a little fiddly to position, particularly getting it to sit around the shoulders, but once you find a comfortable place to use it, it really does help. In combination with a foam roller and some stretching exercises, it can be a laborious routine sometimes, but necessary to helps loosen some of the tension of the modern workplace and I think it really plays a part in helping prevent those back problems getting worse, so it's definitely recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally love this! I have had a bad achy bit on the back of my neck for well over 2 weeks, nothing was getting rid of it but i gave this a go and it actually went with in 10 minutes, I totally love this, so easy to use, heats up and charges up quick, My husband has a really bad back, and it has helped him, he actually fell asleep when he was using it, definitely helps to relieve aches, strains and tension, and can use it near anywhere, love the heated function that really helped with my neck, it does feel odd when you first start using it but you soon get used to it, even my dad wants to have have a go on his back on his next visit! also comes with a travel bag which is really handy to keep everything together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect after a long day This item is incredible. After a long day in work i can just put this on my back whilst sat at the dinner table with the family. It’s small so it’s easy to carry around And use wherever I like. The heated function is a lovely touch and really does soothe and relax. It’s great that you can control what function you want at a touch of a button. I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh my days!! I’ve recently started a new job after a while off being a stay at home parent, long days when I wasn’t used to it were destroying my back and legs. This! This has saved me. I have never been so relaxed! I’ve used it on my legs - after 8-12hrs on my feet, very busy, I really needed it! It loosened my muscles right up and made everything relax and just stop aching! The heat function is amazing on sore, tired muscles. I use it before bed, in my own little relaxing time and it’s helping me sleep much better too. First pulling it out of the box, it has enough charge to give it a quick go. It charges in about 3-4hrs and is good to go for a while (I haven’t timed how long it lasted) but I am using it daily for anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes and I’m getting about a weeks use from it before it needs charging. It’s really easy to use, charge, store and travel with and will definitely be going with me on any long trips I take along with longer work commutes - it’s not overly heavy to carry with you. Overall, I am in love with the pillow, it’s something that now I have it, I couldn’t live without it!

Q & A

Can this be used on feet?

Asked by: lewanna68
Dear lewanna68, You can use the massager on the feet, however it has not been designed to be efficient for that use. We would also advise you to not stand on the massager as it would damage it. Kind Regards, The HoMedics Team
