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, 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.
Gel Massage Nodes
The new way to experience the natural touch of a real massage at home, this massager has gel massage nodes that rotate, knead and roll over tight muscles to release tension and help you unwind. 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.
12 Variable Massage Programmes
There are 12 variable intensity programmes to choose from so you can mix up your treatment zone and type of massage. Choose between rolling, shiatsu and spot massage or all three.Specification:

HoMedics Gel Shiatsu Back & Shoulder Massager is rated out of 5 by 47.Rated 4 out of 5 by MichaelJones from Great product! I've had this product for a few weeks now and it's really easy to use straight out the box. I found that the type of chair it's used on makes a big difference to how effective it is. I suggest going for an office style chair that has some slight recline in it. The lower back heat roller stands out for me, sat at a desk all day I often get back pain after work and it has really helped ease that! Great product would highly recommend!Date published: 2018-08-01Rated 4 out of 5 by Charlie53 from Spectacular piece of kit Very difficult to describe what you get with the HoMedics Gel Shiatsu back massager. You really have to try it for yourself. Not sure how they have done it, but the designers have engineered an increadably clever and sophisticated piece if equipment. If I am so impressed, why have I only rated the massager at four stars, well there is one thing which could be adjusted and sadly the electical plug was broken when we took delivery. The thing which does not work so well is the neck massage component. We have tried it on a number of people of varying shapes, weights, heights etc and we all agree that the upper element does give a particularly beneficial massage. The back massage though is phenomenal and personally I would not mind if the rolling massage option was not there, because the Shiatsu massage is so good I would give this element five stars all day long, and I would really recommend using the “heat” option which is fantastic. Overall, very impressed and delighted to have this massager in my home. I will keep trying the options to ensure I get the best possible results from this marvellous invention.Date published: 2018-07-28Rated 4 out of 5 by spike4567 from Great for a painful back I now use this once a week after my exercises the settings on the remote allow you to control which areas you want to focus on with or without heat which is a great especially if only one part of you back is hurting more.The setup is easy, it will fit over most computer chair or rest easily up against a sofa an after you have finished with it it goes back in a great carry case.Date published: 2018-07-28Rated 3 out of 5 by TT2019 from Use caution before purchasing There is no doubt this is a quality item, and we envisage it lasting for a long time, however we probably won't be using it. The seat is very narrow, and only works if placed on a flat chair otherwise it crumples up and becomes very uncomfortable. The shoulder element is also questionable and requires a certain 'build' to get the most from it. We may return this item for an alternative.Date published: 2020-07-22Rated 3 out of 5 by JJ from Useful for me specially after a hard day at workDate published: 2019-11-12Rated 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: 2018-12-17Rated 2 out of 5 by Tony L from Good back massage but the shoulder part is wasted This is a back and shoulder massage which are controlled independently via the remote control. The back massager part at bottom is pretty good and the gel touch is also good, therefore 2 stars for them. The top part of the massage seat for the shoulder is very poorly designed. They don't stick out far enough to give a good massage. You have to lean back your head and almost force yourself back to get massaged. By adjusting the shoulder rollers to the lowest position and adjusting and stretching myself by sitting very straight, I can just manage to use the shoulder massage, otherwise the rollers are to high to touch my shoulders. Don't take my words for it, check Amazon reviews which are full of the same comments. I'm 5'8", not tall, but not particular short either. Also, when the bottom rollers are massaging your upper back, your body is lifted away from the shoulder rollers, again rendering the shoulder massager useless. Every time the massage program is finished, all the rollers go back to their default positions. This is not good if you just want another session immediately, because you have to set all the positions of the rollers again. The heat of the rollers take ages to get warm. By the time it gets warm, the program is nearly finished. Another reason why you would want another session immediately. Homedics are supposed to be the experts in this field. This is a very poorly designed and disappointing product. This is supposed to be the top of the range product as well.Date published: 2020-06-01Rated 2 out of 5 by Sa from Painful massage It was painful and I didn’t get any massage on my neck area.Date published: 2020-01-22Rated 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: 2019-01-06
