Customer Reviews
Shiatsu Elite is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 22.
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.

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.

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.
