If you have ever gotten a massage, you know that one of the most intense types of massages is a Shiatsu massage. Not only does it get into the deep tissues in your muscles, but it can give you pain relief for even the most intense pains you suffer from. The problem is that this type of massage can be expensive, and are not feasible to get every day, even if you may need it. You may also be in so much pain at the end of the day, that it would be impossible for you to get up on a massage table.
The Homedics MCL-110H-2 Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat is the solution to that; it offers up a shiatsu massage experience, which can be utilized in your home or office. The product itself sits flat on a chair and is designed to be plugged into a wall socket, so it can be used anywhere you have access to electricity. The massaging mechanism is in the form of spinning discs, which do what they can to relax the whole back. A handy remote control is built right into the side of chair, so you won’t have to fret about ever losing it, changes where the chair massages, and manages the heat. It can be set to massage the entire back or just the top or bottom. Furthermore, the heat can be turned on to be used with the massaging heads, or it doesn’t have to be used at all. It will fit on most chairs, but will work best on a chair that has a straight back, like an armchair. Although it is a simple idea, it can relax many different parts of the back and provide relief for even the most stubborn muscle aches.
Reviews of the massage cushion state that the item is extremely powerful for its size and lasts a long time. It has even been utilized in professional physical therapy offices. Some people have tried it in recliners and felt that it worked better, and most report that it can be used in short bursts for pain relief. It is important to remember that it should only be used while you are wearing clothes. The spinning discs are very powerful and can cause pain if they are used without clothing or for too long. The device is also long enough to accommodate most heights, but may massage in different areas on your body, depending on your height. However, the device doesn’t massage in the seat, so it should be okay for many, including tall men and women over 6 feet.
One downside of the product is that it doesn’t have an adapter for use in the car. This is because it may be dangerous to get this type of massage in the car due to the fact that it can be a bit more aggressive than a simple percussion-type massage. Other than that, this small machine can do what you need it to do. It is designed for one purpose and is capable of doing that job quite well. It can be folded up and stored, or taken wherever you need it, or you can simply move it from chair to chair in your house. This would be great if you wanted someone to try it and needed to transport it to where they live and would be a great gift for someone you know that it is a hard worker or often suffers from any type of back pain. Homedics is known for making many different items to meet their customers’ needs and this is a great example of that.
