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 1 out of 5 by from Unhappy I purchased this from your site. My main problem is my upper back and the machine does not massage in this area. I tried to return it, but the shipping charge is $88 and I was told I would also be charged shipping and handling minus the refund. I would like to exchange it for a model that would massage the upper back area. The only way I can massage this area is sitting on two large pillow so that the neck massage are will reach the upper back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful indulgence! I purchased the Perfect Touch Masseuse, predecessor to the Shiatsu Elite, along with the Homedics Foot & Calf Massager a few years ago. I use them together at least every other day, often daily, to relax and work out knots in my neck and back. They have truly made a big difference in my overall well-being. So when a roller in my Perfect Touch Masseuse dislocated itself and I could not work it back into place, I contacted Homedics. I was two months out of warranty, but the company replaced it with a new one. Five-star customer service in addition to 5-star products - it doesn't get better than that! Thank you Homedics.

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 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 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 1 out of 5 by from Very uncomfortable This massager is more like a "beat up machine". Was not in any way soothing or comfortable.
