For a Best Home Massage - it's all About Shiatsu. As the UK's leading brand in home massage products, HoMedics has decided to refresh a customer favourite in back massage chair range. We've given the beloved ShiatsuMAX a makeover. Boasting a new feel, a sleek design and the same great features to play with, the ShiatsuMAX 2.0 is set to replace its much-loved predecessor as the shiatsu back massager.

Shiatsu Massage
Having its roots in Asia, Shiatsu massage has been believed to an excellent remedy for muscle and joint pains. Shiatsu massage, through finder manipulations, stimulates blood flow and improves the nerve function, and provides both physical and psychological relief. Using the ShiatsuMAX 2.0 Back and Shoulder Massager with Heat Massage Chair, you can now reduce muscles stiffness in your neck, lower back, shoulders and enjoy a relaxing massage right from the comfort of your home!

Comfortably Adjustable
Are you sitting comfortably? Big or small, you can enjoy a relaxing massage that hits all the right spots. To make sure that happens, we’ve designed a flexible massage mechanism, so you can get the perfect fit. Using the simple controls, adjust the height and width of the massage reach. The headrest is adjustable too to ensure you're feeling fully rested by the end of your treatment.

Personalise Your Massage
There’s a full demo at the touch of a button to show you exactly what the ShiatsuMAX 2.0 has to offer. Then you can start mixing and matching up to 14 massage programs to perfect your favourite home massage chair treatment. For example, whilst enjoying a traditional Shiatsu massage, you can switch on the Shiatsu Spot mode to pause the moving nodes to focus on one spot.

Soothing Heat
Adding heat to a Shiatsu experience intensifies the massage technique by penetrating the warmth deeper into the muscles as they stretch and loosen stiff tendons. You’ll love the feeling of spreading warmth across the back and shoulders as the massage nodes travel up and down the lumbar.

Secure Strapping System
There’s a good chance you’ll nod off but there’s no chance of slipping off. The ShiatsuMAX 2.0 fits comfortably to most home and office chairs. Simply slip the strap over the back of your chair, tighten and adjust to secure.

Spot Shiatsu
If you want to target an area that requires a little extra TLC, then simply adjust the position of the rotating massage mechanism using the Spot Shiatsu controls. A little further up, or slightly further down, inch the nodes until they perfectly positioned to really hit the spot.

Foldaway Design
Tight on space? You can simply fold away and store the ShiatsuMAX 2.0 using the handy hanging loop at the back of your door, in your cupboard, or even a garment rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase I ever made!! This massage chair is a life saver, after a hard day's work I just look forward to unwinding for 15/30mins of relaxation. It completely invigorates the whole body and you feel that get up and go vibe. Would recommend it to anyone!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for your back I used to have the old version now this is much improved. Had my old shiatsu pad for around 10 years then finally gave up. I did not bother for a while and have had constant back and neck aches. Now I have this new shiatsu pad my back and neck problems have vanished. A really fantastic product, highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really gets to the sore bits! Just Wonderful Pros: Much more effective than we'd hoped - highly recommend Cons: If only it could reach up a bit and down a bit further! Nonetheless really good. If you have really knotty bits - this finds and really kneads them - you can always lean forward a bit if really sore, until the knots are unwound a bit and not so painful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 Years on and still Absolutely Brilliant.. !! I had this for my 65th Birthday after a friend had said they were very good. I have had two Spinal Decompression Ops on prolapsed discs in 2011 and again in 2017 so my back does get very achey. This massage chair is so versatile so you can pause and focus on various areas of back and neck. The heat is very good too if you want it and the whole thing is really relaxing. I definitely haven’t been disappointed with it at all and would recommend to anyone.

Is it possible to pick a setting that would "hide" the massagers somehow so that it is comfortable to sit on the chair without it actually working? This would save having to constantly put it away...

Asked by: V123
Dear V123, Unfortunately, the massager does not have any settings to hide the massage nodes, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. Kind Regards, The HoMedics team

Hi,  just bought one & I find it great but was very painful to begin with.  Is there a way to start on a more mild, less vigorous mode?  

Asked by: Tortie
Dear Tortie, You may soften massage force by placing a towel between yourself and the unit. Also, do not use this product for more than 15 mins at a time. If you feel any discomfort whilst using this appliance, discontinue use and consult your doctor. The product may be not suitable for your needs and you may consider to contact the retailer for a refund. Kind regards, Team Homedics
