Short of having your own live-in massage therapist, relaxing with a massage cushion that fits into your favorite chair may be the best way to pamper yourself. There are many different models available and the Houston wellness examiner has enjoyed the use of a variety of models. So when HoMedics offered their new Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat for a review, it was a welcome opportunity.
The Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat has a soft yet sturdy upholstery and offers more features than most others. Setting up the cushion in your favorite comfy chair takes less than five minutes and then you can sit back and enjoy a relaxing experience. The “demo” button on the remote is a good way to get acquainted with the cushion. Those little dancing nodes inside the cushion will treat you to a sampling of what they can do including heating up, kneading, drumming, and rolling or sliding, both singularly and simultaneously, up and down your back. It all feels good but the drumming especially makes it seem like the hands of a massage therapist. However, the best is yet to come when you realize you can use the remote to stop the nodes to concentrate on a particularly tense spot. You can also choose upper, lower, or full back massage as well as change the style of massage at any time using the remote. Wow! A custom massage right at your fingertips!
Using the HoMedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat right before bedtime is a great way to get a good night’s sleep. A full back massage, alternating between simultaneous kneading and drumming which really pounds away tension, and kneading alone soothes and relaxes. After a few minutes, a smooth slide all the way down the muscles on each side of the spine finishes up a dreamy experience. Then take a deep, cleansing breath and sleep is not far away.
There doesn’t seem to be a single negative thing about the HoMedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat. It comes with a two year warranty but experience with other HoMedics products shows that they last much longer than the warranty. Unless you are lucky enough to have your own personal live-in massage therapist, you will appreciate the economy and the convenience of a massage cushion. Anytime you have ten or fifteen minutes, you can sit down for a quick massage that will stimulate your circulation, melt away stress, and leave you feeling both energized and relaxed.
