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 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 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 shiatsu massage I have had two of these Shiatsu massages, and both times the fabric wore through which would not let the machine go up or down.

Q & A

Do you’re massagers adaptable to cars?

Asked by: Zeren
Thank you for you question. This model of massager is not adaptable to a car. We do make some models that are designed for use in a car. You will want to look for models that state they are "mobile" or "travel" massage cushions.
