Customer Reviews
Shiatsu Elite II Massage Cushion with Soothing Heat is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing I'm a big fan of the Shiatsu Elite II massage cushion! After a long day of work it feels so good and relaxing. I love keeping it on all three modes from my neck to my lower back, but it is nice that I can customize and focus just on one segment of my back/neck. The optional soothing heat is something I've used much more then what I thought I would, as it feels amazing. I also like that I can go with a more soothing rolling massage mode or more intense shiatsu massage. I love having this on hand and my back getting a massage whenever I want or need it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but I hate the noise There are a few things I love about this product and a few things I dislike so I'm kind of having a love/hate relationship with it but the more used to it I'm becoming, the more I am liking it more. I love that you can place it in any chair- I at first thought it would only work in my computer chair but I can actually put this on my couch and sit on it, or on my patio deck chair and it still does a great job. The controller makes it very useful and helpful to figure control what you're wanting. You can choose to turn the heat on or keep it off. You can choose to have it just do the lower back which is usually what I keep it on, or to do other parts of the body. The major con about this product is the noise. It makes a loud, pounding noise along with vibration sounding massage. I assumed I'd hear the vibration massage sound but not the banging/pounding sound so there are times of the day and at night where I can't use this product due to knowing I will wake up my roommates. Some of the massage options end up being to hard and not feeling well against me but I love the lower back setting especially when I'm dealing with menstrual problems. It relieves a lot of pressure and helps make me feel better. My husband uses this when he comes home from work so he can relax from the day. Quite easy to use, just plug it in and it's ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Massage For A Portable!! I can't say enough about the Shiatsu Elite II Massage Cushion with Soothing Heat by Homedics. I had a multi level fusion surgery and had two "cage" placements and this massager works better than even the professional massage chairs. It features three different massage zones (upper, lower, or entire back), or you can choose a specific spot for areas that may be more tense than others. There are also three preset massages that offer varied patterns of massage to achieve maximum results. The shiatsu label really means shiatsu because this massager gives a deep tissue massage that is essential for those that need it to relax. It's great for muscle spasms that is for sure. Best of all is I can use this in any room in the house. I have always loved the Homedics product line but they exceeded even my expectations with this massager.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Relaxation! I've had the best experience with my HoMedics Shiatsu Elite ll Massage Cushion! When opening the package with my massage cushion in it I was very happy to see how carefully it was packaged by the company. It arrived in perfect condition and was very easy to set up. The instructions are to the point and simple to understand. I like that I'm able to set the massage cushion up anywhere I need to in my house or even when we go on weekend trips in our motorhome, I'm able to bring it with me! There are 2 velcro straps in the back that helps to secure it to most chairs. I like that there is a sleeve to store the attached remote in for safe keeping. There are several options with this massage cushion that make it so amazing! It has a kneading feature as well as a rolling feature. These different techniques allow for a back, neck, and shoulder massage that is superior to any other brand I have tried in the past! I'm also able to select on the remote to only have certain areas of my back focused on. I'm able to get spots worked out exactly as I like because I'm able to adjust the height and width of the location of the massagers. There are 3 different modes to choose from as well. Soothe, Revitalize, and Unwind are the options and they work perfectly at soothing and relaxing my back, neck, and shoulders! I like to switch up between these after my intense workouts and especially when I feel sore the next day. My absolute favorite feature is the heat option! The massages feel great by themselves but when the heat is added it feels beyond great! So relaxing and with the heat it works out my sore muscles quickly! Lately I've been finding myself rushing home to my massage cushion after a long day at work! I can't say enough great things about it! I will be using this for years and years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!! It is such a great feeling knowing that I'm coming home to this on my chair to relax me after a long day at work. It does a great job helping my back and legs. I wear high heel shoes 8 hours a day and that really puts a hurting on my back and legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing! I was always the Person at the mall trying all the massage chairs and items and wishing I could afford one. If this was you also now you can! I'm so happy to have gotten and tried the Shiatsu Elite II massage cushion. It's truly life changing, if you have sore muscles or just need to relax this is the answer. It's so simple to operate and you can use it anywhere your sitting which is great. There is so many options that you can find what is perfect for your pain relief and program it. I had no idea how much I needed this.
