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:

HoMedics ShiatsuMAX 2.0 Back and Shoulder Massager with Heat Massage Chair is rated out of 5 by 235.Rated 5 out of 5 by Smita from I bought it as birthday present for my husband and he loved it. It's absolutely amazing..does the job very well. However it will be ideal only for firm surface like firm chairs or firm sofa. Other than that nothing to comment. I would definitely recommend this product.Date published: 2019-07-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Pottsie from Great features and not difficult to work I am very happy with my chair and pleased I purchased it though I did have a previous modelDate published: 2019-07-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Ty from Better than what I would've expected! I wasn't sure what to expect until I got it out of the box. It runs to my shoulder blades and lower back in a way that's just as fantastic as more expensive chairs I have used. I would suggest to never use it beyond extended use, though for me personally, 15-30 minutes is the right spot for my daily massage. It's become my daily ritual to use this chair and I have had no complains so far! I'd definitely recommend this for anyone who suffers with back tension.Date published: 2019-07-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Maria from Does it job as what the description states Very useful and relaxing especially after work.Date published: 2019-07-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Mags from Simply the best My Husband chose it and thinks it is just a fantastic piece of equipment, reaches all the places that needs attention I also enjoy using it as I can't get out of the house to go to a massage parlour it is the next best thing. Very quiet and effective.Date published: 2019-06-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Love it! Fast delivery. Brilliant design. Really enjoyable and helpful to my bodyDate published: 2019-06-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Grinchy from Not for beginners Really lovely heat from the chair, its almost impossible to get the top of the shoulders and neck, no matter how you sit it just glides past, it could use a design tweek where the top of the chair bends inwards. I am a tall person as well. It also packs a punch. For a first time user it is quite vicious. Crunching muscles all over, Leave's you quite sore for a few days afterwards. But all in all its doing the job its supposed to.Date published: 2019-06-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Phipho from For my dad It was his birthday gift he loves itDate published: 2019-06-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Eddy from Very easy to use my back feels much better Great massager easy to setup and use helped with the pain in my lower backDate published: 2019-05-30Rated 5 out of 5 by welshandwonderful from Relaxed Don't over use in one day.

Please can you make more ones usable in the car I want a good one for after my cycling races but the one you already have I have read isnt that great Thank youDear Hello, Thank you for the feedback. We will bear it in mind for future projects. However a Shiatsu massage chair should not be used whilst driving, due to the fact that if you were to be in an accident it could severely damage your back. Kind regards, Homedics TeamDate published: 2019-07-11
