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 25.Rated 5 out of 5 by Bazz from Great massager I have had this for two weeks now. Great massager and a good buy. The delivery was safe and secure as well. Only drawback is the access to the neck massager for short people. It would be good if this product included thigh massager as well.Date published: 2019-01-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathryn54 from Great massager I bought this for sorting my back and shoulders out it is great, if you have not got one get one would'n be without mind nowDate published: 2019-01-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Em123 from Great for your back Bought this in the Boxing Day sale. Provides a good shoulder and back massage. The different settings are good to target different bits of your back.Date published: 2019-01-07Rated 1 out of 5 by AK48 from Faulty on receipt. Poor quakity control apparent. Purchased direct from Homedics and when set up ready to use found one of the gel pads missing from the seat squab. Still in the process of getting a replacement, so unsure of the customer service efficiency, but this is a major quality control concern as it is such an obvious fault.Date published: 2019-01-06Rated 4 out of 5 by Daniela from Pretty good massager When in shiatsu mode you can not change the nodes position towards left or right to cover more of your back, so it will massage always in the same areas along the spine. Does not reach to the neck area when seated normally but if you position yourself a little lower and turn on each side at a time it will massage both sides of the neck properly. I bought it for my husband for his lumbar and cervical problems and he says it helped a little with the pain and the muscles feel a bit more relaxed.Date published: 2018-12-31Rated 4 out of 5 by Achey1 from Great product easy to set up and use. Shoulder massage is positioned for a tall person. I have to use a cushion to get in correct position Would have been better if hieght setting was adjustable however the cushion works well.Date published: 2018-12-26Rated 4 out of 5 by Markesa from Good for waking you up in the morning. Only had it a week so my experience of the gel massager is somewhat limited.I love the shiatsu massage but the shoulder massage is a bit weak for me - maybe I will get used to it with time.Date published: 2018-12-18Rated 3 out of 5 by SDasci from Great product that needs different sizes I like the product however one size fits all approach does not exactly do it for me since the product seems to be designed for a tall person and does not massage my shoulders properlyDate published: 2018-12-17

What does it measure seat to top?Dear Stupid, The height of the GSM-1000H from the seat to the top of the back is 76cm. Kind Regards HoMedics Customer ServicesDate published: 2018-12-18
Could you use this product on a bed, instead of a chair?Dear Lemon Drop, No our chairs are designed to be used in a seated position and are not be used lying down. If you are looking for a massager that can be used lying down I would recommend the: HoMedics Full Body Heated Vibration Massage Mat Model: MMP-250-GB https://www.homedics.co.uk/massagers/full-body-massage-mat.html This is a vibration massager designed to be used in a lying position. Kind regards HoMedics Customer services.Date published: 2018-12-13
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
