Customer Reviews
Shiatsu Elite is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I had another model from HoMedics I used for years. Unfortunately my pup recently chewed the wiring on it & it was beyond repair. I was really looking forward to this new one with the neck massage. Upon using it, I found the rollers, especially on the neck, to poke way out. They were actually painful, even with a blanket between me & the massager. Also, neither the neck rollers or back rollers touched the area I really needed massaged. The neck rollers don't go far enough down, & the back rollers don't go high enough. I will be returning this item. I tried the next model down without the neck rollers at Bed Bath & Beyond in town. I will be buying that one as it seemed OK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elite Model Fine - if that's the intensity you want Tried demo models in store - settled for Elite. They had 3 demos, of which only two were operational. None of them were the Elite. I really really liked the 'Perfect Touch' model demo - however - none in stock. No Elite demo, sales staff stated that the ONLY difference between Elite and Perfect Touch was that Elite did not have a heated seat... I settled for the Elite. That was not the only difference. Not knowing what I know now- the Elite has intensity meter of 3 out of 5. Perfect Touch intensity is 4 out of 5. Doesn't sound like much of a difference. I can assure you there is a difference!!! My dilemma is: what do I do now? Store did not have them in stock; this site shows they are out of stock. How can I make an exchange taking into account that the Elite was on sale for Christmas, AND I had a store percent coupon? How can I get an exchange without having to pay excessive amount more of money?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Awesome It is my first one and I think it's awesome! I love the heat for the lower back and the massage range covers entire back and the head massage covers upper & lower neck area. Especially like that you can reverse the head roller massage direction. I think it has great pressure. I love it if I've wrenched my back or am just stressed and stiff from work and sitting in a chair all day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features and Enjoyable I bought this massage item for personal use December 2017 and loved it; Bought a second one as a gift for mother's day. Its a well built, comfortable and fits over any high back chair. The controls are easy to operate. Shiatsu Elite provides an overall relaxing experience and when applying heat to the back muscles provides ultimate enjoyment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for My Needs I read other reviews about this product. I was mostly just curious before I bought this product, because I had already tried it out at Bed Bath and Beyond, so I knew this one was the right choice for me. I believe the other more negative reviewers most likely had not tried it out; otherwise, most of the comments I saw would not have been made. It is unfair to provide a negative review simply based on, in this case, it being too rough. That is a personal preference, not a problem with the product itself. This product works perfectly every time (I have had it for almost a month now and use it practically daily), is of high quality, and the manual is very precise about usage, covering any questions one might have concerning use and maintenance/guarantee. I am extremely pleased with this product as it helps me to spend my hours at the computer (which is the core of my business) much more stress- and pain-free. Thank you SO very much. Please, people, do your research or don't write harmful reviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Diverse back massager Tried this massager at BBB. I liked everything except the fact that the massager did not go all the way up the back. Neck massage was great, as was the shiatsu back massage. Liked its better than the perfect touch. However, alas, I need a massager that goes all the way up my back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from consumer I think the neck massage is too hard. I have to use a pillow between it and my neck. It does not go low enough on my neck it also sticks out too far. The controls do not seem to work as they should. I do not see much difference in the "width". It really does not message the shoulders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big relief on my neck! I tried this product in Bed Body and Beyond and it was better than the last one on display. I like the neck massage, I could set there all day if that is my house. Too bad the chair is not for sale. I think the chair is very important part of the massager.

Asked by: nancywang

Hello, I have a homedics shiatsu massager that you put on a chair and sit in it. It might be as old as 10 yes. While moving I lost the power cord. There isn't a model number or name on the tags or the massager. What can you suggest. Thank you

Asked by: yannick

If I adjust the width while in rolling massage and I switch to kneading, will the width stay where I set it or will it reset? Basically, I'm trying to be able to set the height and width for kneading massage.
