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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.Specification:

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...Dear V123, Unfortunately, the massager does not have any settings to hide the massage nodes, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
