The HoMedics Shiatsu Cushion

HoMedics are a well known name in the personal health and wellness products domain. They invest in the latest technological advances bringing to us a range of innovative personal well-being products. I am sure you must have heard of, seen or used one of their massagers. I recently had the opportunity to try out the HoMedics Shiatsu Cushion - a compact massager that offers reverse action Shiatsu massage along with circular thumb action.

The HoMedics Shiatsu Cushion has a compact design with adjustable rear straps with which you can secure it to most chairs. Because of its size the cushion is easily portable as well. The cushion comes with an integrated remote control and decently long power cord, so you don't have to sit very near to the plug point :) Operating it is very simple. Plug the adaptor into the mains outlet and press the 'Power' button on the remote. To activate the Shiatsu massage press one of the 'Shiatsu' buttons. Pressing the other button will reverse the direction of massage. If you wish to activate heat with the massage, press the heat button at the top of the remote.

The design is such that you can use the massaging mechanism to target your shoulders, lumbar area, back or even legs. The reverse action shiatsu massage mechanism combined with the soothing heat treatment helps ease muscular tension or stiffness. Though the heat is not too hot(which I have noticed is the case with most such massagers), it does give a moderate warming sensation which coupled with the kneading massage offers good relief. When the heat option is turned on, the massage heads will glow red. You can flip back the flap for a more intense massage - I always do that.

When you are using the massager, you need to ensure that you do not exert too much force against the pillow. This is so that you do not injure yourself and also to ensure that the massaging mechanism is not damaged. The effect of the massage is so brilliant that it is easy to get carried away and keep using the cushion for long periods of time. And that is why HoMedics have set a 15 minute auto shutoff feature on the unit to ensure the user's safety. The product comes with an instruction manual which lists all the safety cautions and maintenance aspects as well.

This Shiatsu cushion has been with me for a few weeks now and I am so very pleased with the results. The lower back pain and upper leg pain that I get during my periods is better managed now because of the Shiatsu cushion. The tension spots on my shoulders have also improved because of the regular massage sessions. Overall, I love the HoMedics Shiatsu Cushion a lot and cannot recommend the product enough. If you suffer from tension in the shoulders or experience frequent backache(which most of us would experience at some point in our lives) then I strongly suggest that you give this Shiatsu cushion a go.
