Finally a luxurious massage for your back and shoulders without going to an expensive spa! With the HoMedics Therapist Select Shiatsu I Massaging Cushion with Heat, you can turn any chair into a luxurious massage chair. This convenient, easy-to-use cushion has independently controlled back and shoulder massage mechanisms that give you the most control and the fullest massage ever.

What is Shiatsu Massage?



The Therapist Select Shiatsu I Massaging Cushion with Heat provides a strong, kneading, circular shiatsu-style massage for the back and shoulders. Shiatsu (from Japanese shi meaning finger and atsu meaning pressure) is a traditional massage therapy that originated in Japan. Shiatsu practitioners apply pressure to particular sections of the body for the purpose of correcting imbalances and for maintaining and promoting health.

Shiatsu is traditionally believed to prevent illnesses promote recovery by stimulating the immune system and the body's other natural healing powers. Shiatsu treats the body as a whole, with the goal of restoring the natural harmony of your body systems and your emotions.

Four Great Features for a Perfect Massage
The Therapist Select Shiatsu I Massaging Cushion with Heat has everything you want in a massage cushion. After just one use of each of the cushion's luxurious functions, you won't know how you ever lived without it.

Exclusive shiatsu shoulder massage: This cushion features a mechanism that allows you to use the cushion to massage just your shoulders. After a day of staring at the computer or a night of tossing and turning, just adjust the shoulder height position with the touch of a button and experience the relaxation that only a deep shoulder massage can bring.

Moving dual massage mechanism for the back: What could be better than a massage? Two massages, that's what! Get it all with the Therapist Select Shiatsu I Massaging Cushion with Heat. Two mechanisms travel up and down your back to provide two massaging styles--shiatsu and rolling massage.

Quick heat: We all know that heat can really help our muscles relax, and that relaxed muscles make for the most productive massages. With the Therapist Select Shiatsu I Massaging Cushion with Heat, you can warm up your back and shoulder muscles in under one minute to get the best massage possible.

Easily fits most chairs: The Therapist Select's integrated strapping system transforms any ordinary chair into an incredible massage chair. The cushion has real massage chair technology so you can explore the benefits of shiatsu massage at home or in the office.

The rolling, shiatsu massage option, plus the heat really felt great.
J. Penar
Also, the upper rollers are supposed to massage your neck and shoulders but it only massages the back of my head.

This is my first attempt at doing an Amazon video review for a product I have purchased. Today I will be reviewing a total of 3 Homedics massage products. This one in particular is the Homedics SBM-500H Therapist Select Shiatsu One Massaging Cushion w/ Heat.

I particularyly enjoy this product because it covers both back and shoulder areas and the rollers for me go all the way down my lower back and the shoulder rollers hit my traps just right (after lowering it to the max)

Pros: Everything about this product I love!

Cons: Shoulder rollers have to be adjusted all the way down for me to use it (I'm 5'6" in height).

Every few months I wake up with a really stiff, burning muscle in my lower neck or shoulders. I have found that, if I can enlist someone to do so, a strong kneading of the affected area brings immediate and often lasting relief. But -- here's the rub -- my significant other travels a lot so I am sometimes left to my own devices. On more than one occasion I have driven to the mall to sit in one of the $2,000 Sharper Image massage chairs for relief (seems I can never book a short-notice "real" massage). So, this weekend, when I woke up with a stiff, burning muscle in my right shoulder blade, I started researching more affordable massage cushions (I already have an easy chair) which led me to buy the SBM-500H. After my first hour of use I'm ready to say it was worth the money. Most cushions do not go high enough to massage your shoulders but this model has a seperate upper pad for that area. Those rollers can be raised or lowered via the remote control (but not widened or narrowed, which would be nice too). Because the back of the pad is rather tall (even for my 6'1" frame) my head hits it which makes it harder to press my sholders into the upper massage rollers. But I managed to do so. The lower rollers do a good job on the main back area. Both upper and lower have seperate heat functions, which work well. While not as good as the expensive chairs, at one-tenth the price it did the trick (no more neck ache!). As for price I am a HUGE Amazon fan but did buy this model at Linen's & Things (Bed, Bath & Beyond has them too) using one of their ubiquitous discount coupons.

This is the third massage item I bought with the Homedics brand. Impressive! As a very serious exercise enthusiast this machine has the unusual power to calm and restore even the most fatigued muscles. Now two months with the product, I found my recovery time has dramatically improved as well.

The massager works the back and shoulders and their various pressure points with a "deep tissue" style. This is serious massage- and excellent at that!!

Strong 5 stars.

Verified Purchase
I have now bought this for me and 3 others. This massage chair pays for itself in 2 days. Quite honestly, how do they produce a shiatsu massage with so much amazing power and so much like the real thing? The heating element is just right. It is not too hot but you can feel it. The options are perfect. You can do a lighter rolling massage or the deep tissue shiatsu and you can stop the massage in an area that really needs extra help and then go back to full back, upper back or lower back. The shoulder option is really for taller people and that needs to be addressed at some point by the manufacturer, but this chair is by far and away the best purchase I have made in a long time and I have a new Mac, Wii, Powershot and assorted goodies that do not come close to this in terms of letting the tension go and feeling de-stressed after 15 minutes to half an hour. I would not get this for my 90 year old dad, but if you are 20-70 and not in terrible shape, then go for it.

I have evaluated a couple of Homedics Massaging cusions and feel this one is the best. Being tall, the shoulder massage section gets right into my shoulder blades and above. The friction alone gives off heat and is very soothing. Earlier massagers tended to be a littl harsh since they did not give much if you had a smaller cushion or hard back chair you were sitting in. This massager has balls that flex a little when pressure is added, so, there is much less of a tendency to feel a little like you may get some bruising.

Homedics really did its homework with this little gem. A great gift for those you know who need more than an occassional massage or just a great gift to give yourself. I recommend this to my friends. Great job Homedics.

I was able to sit on this in a local store and found that -- while the shoulder massage feature is nice and not even available on other massage cushions -- there is a gap between the mechanism for the shoulders and the mechanism for the back. In other words, this product does not massage the upper back between the shoulder blades, which was a deal-breaker for us. See the two grey patches on the upholstery? The zone that this cushion does not massage is the region between them. So, on the one hand, this focuses on the shoulders which no other cushion seems to do. On the other hand, it misses that upper back area between the shoulder blades which is a pretty important zone if you have shoulder tension. After sitting on this and two other cushions, I chose a different one: "HoMedics Therapist Select Quad-Roller Massaging Cushion with Heat." That cushion has adjustable width and reaches between the shoulder blades -- though it doesn't go as high as I'd like. That's the price we pay for buying a cushion to do a massage therapist's job. Happy cushion hunting, everyone!
