Nothing beats the real hands of a massage therapist… or so we thought. The brand new HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Back & Shoulder Massager lets you prioritise your wellbeing, bringing relaxation out of the salon and into your home.
Home Massage Relaxation
Soft yet firm, that’s how a real massage should feel. We’ve captured this real palm-like feel in our super soft Gel Massage Technology. The gel nodes rotate, knead and roll over tight muscles to release tension and help you unwind. Set into our revolutionary massage mechanism, this is relaxation that keeps on giving.HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Back & Shoulder Massager features two dual mechanism zones to deliver shiatsu, rolling and targeted spot relief across the full length of your back, shoulders and neck. Using your programmed remote control, you can customise the zone, intensity, width and height of your massage experience. You can also choose to add soothing heat, penetrating warmth deep into tired muscles to help you unwind. The split zone design means you can enjoy a shoulder massage, a back massage or even better, enjoy both at the same time.

HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Back & Shoulder Massager is rated out of 5 by 17.Rated 5 out of 5 by TB from Does what it says on the lable Excellent for loosening up the back after a hard days workDate published: 2018-11-15Rated 5 out of 5 by BeccaC from Relaxing and comfortable I received this a month ago and I am so glad I did! The seat is comfortable and supportive while the gel pads aren't too forceful. As someone who suffers with back pain, I was worried at first as to the pressure being too much. However, that is not the case! The back pad is ergonomic and follows the shape of your back to provide maximum support. The range of settings also means that the back and neck massager is able to target the areas you need it to, without increasing the amount of pain you are in. I would definitely recommend this product for those that also have issues with back/neck pain, especially in the lower back area.Date published: 2018-08-29Rated 4 out of 5 by Farn from good for a first massager The massager is quite sturdy and as a result is heavier than I expected. Instructions are fairly self-explanatory - 3 massaging modes, with heat settings optional. feel relaxed after a session. happy to use it daily.Date published: 2018-08-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Nemo from Excellent quality and it actually works This massager is such good quality not like the usual ones that will fall apart after two uses. I would compare it to the ones you try in shopping centres that you can put coins into and relax. There are lots of settings depending what you need and you can target specific areas that are causing you problems. The heat function is a lovely touch as it really gets deep into the muscles and you honestly feel so relaxed after you've used it. I thought I would have to attach it to a chair but we've been using it on the sofa and it works just fine. The seat part folds up to the back part so you can easily store it away. All in all I don't have a bad word to say about it. My partner plays sports and is always asking for a massage so the best thing is that I can just leave him with the massager and get on with my day!Date published: 2018-08-13Rated 4 out of 5 by Jay Y from Looks Amazing I have had this massager for about a month now. Initially I found it quite uncomfortable. Took time to learn to relax and let it run and now find it enjoyable. Great to spend a few minutes in the evening on to wind down. I have not yet tried the heat setting but look forward to using that feature in the cooler months.Date published: 2018-08-09Rated 4 out of 5 by RSmith from Everyone Will Want A Go The HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Back & Shoulder Massager is perfect for any home or office. It fits onto any chair using the straps provided and provides a realistic massage experience with the soft gel nodes. The feel and look of the fabric is soft, modern and luxury but this isn’t carried through to the remote which appears low quality. The product does incorporate a handy a remote holder and a long lead. I loved the intense and relaxing feeling of the Shiatsu massage on my back whilst selecting the option of heated nodes to relax the muscles. At the same time, I also selected the shoulder massager which can be customised for different heights by moving the nodes up or down. I would have really wanted the shoulder massager nodes to have an option to move them closer together so it could be used as a neck massager which would have justified the price tag a bit more. The price tag of this product is partly justified when you see the options provided: • Soft gel nodes for a realistic feel. These also have the option to be heated • For your back you can select either Shiatsu in 3 different sections or on one customised spot, rolling up or down in 3 different sections. • For your shoulders you can select Shiatsu and customise the height I can see myself using this product all the time instead of going to a massage therapist. All of my friends wanted to try it and now they want one as well.Date published: 2018-08-08Rated 4 out of 5 by Crofty from Relaxing The features are great. The massager fits nicely on our sofa and was easy to set up. The different settings are the best so each member of the family can have exactly what they want. The heat function works but it is more a gentle warmth. The consensus from our family that it could have been warmer. I do think this is worth buyingDate published: 2018-08-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Jojo25 from Brilliant I got to review this about 2 weeks ago and I have to say this is great very relaxing and calming and the best part I don’t even have to leave the house to get a brilliant massage love it , would recommend this to anyone who loves a great massageDate published: 2018-08-03

Is it safe to use if you have a pacemaker?Dear Chipstick, We always recommend that you consult your medical professional to ensure this product would be suitable for you. The massage chairs can cause a small electrical field which, although harmless, can interfere with some pacemakers. Kind regards, HoMedics Customer Services.Date published: 2018-12-06
Is it okay to lie down on it in bed??Hi Tetski, Thank you for contacting Homedics. We would not recommend to use the massager to lie down on a bed as it could damage the massager. Kind regardsDate published: 2018-11-27
