My husband is on his feet all day, which as you probably know can lead to an aching back, so I bought him this chair cushion massager as a gift. Now at the end of a hard day he can relax in a comfy chair and get a nice massage.
The Shiatsu massage cushion has moving ball type things that provide an up and down deep kneading motion, which is great at relieving tight knots. There are three settings to choose from - full, upper or lower back. This cushion even has the option of adding heat. It has an attached remote control so you can make adjustments as needed. The cushion is light weight and can easily be moved from chair to chair or couch, etc.
I will admit I was leary on buying this at first as I wasn't sure just how good of a massage it could provide, but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it myself. The deep kneading really works well and my lower back felt so relaxed after I used it. I'd say it is definitly worth trying, and the price is great if you compare it to a real massage at a spa. I bought this one at Bed, Bath and Beyond and since they send out monthly coupons I managed to save 20%.
So, give yourself a break and try a Shiatsu massage today! You won't even need to leave home or make an appointment to get one!
