Just imagine if you can have a custom massage, any time you want it, just the way you want it. Utopia, right?

Well, guess what? You could!

“The HoMedics® Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat is your personal masseuse. With three massage styles and zone control, this massage cushion puts you in control of your massage experience. Whether you’re looking for a fast, invigorating percussion massage, deep muscle kneading massage, or a gentle rolling massage, the Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion is for you.”

After a long, hard day of work, sitting over a computer typing, my back takes a toll. And I’d do just about anything I can to treat my back at that point. the HoMedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion is pure bliss. I can customize the controls and use it as I wish.

The thing is, I have a tiny apartment, with little space. And I love that I can practically have a massage chair – without occupying any space! It’s slim, and I keep it on an inside chair that usually sits against the table and isn’t used. When I feel like a perfect massage I just pull it out.

And it feels real. It doesn’t feel like a “canned” massage. You can “tell” it to move higher or lower, and to knead, tap, or roll. You can choose change the width to match your body. You can activate the heat setting (I almost can’t wait for the winter to try that out!) or you can leave it off, if your house is really hot like mine.


Features of the HoMedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat:

  • Three different massage styles to suit your preferences: Percussion, kneading, or rolling. Percussion is the most intense, and rolling is the gentlest, and good for relaxing. Kneading provides a great deep muscle massage. 
  • Zone control: you have various options for massage zones. You can choose full back, upper back, or lower back. You can also choose spot for further customization.
  • Optional heat is great for sore muscles or colder days.
  • Custom width settings so that you get the massage you need.
  • Controls are on a hand unit connected with a wire. there is a little hanging pocket that you can slip it into.
  • Pretty, classy gray blends in with my decor. Features a strap on the back to attach it to the chair. I use that strap also for storage.

Whether you’re looking to really pamper someone you love, or to unwind yourself after a long, hard day, the HoMedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat is just what you need! You’ll keep running back for that massage – you simply won’t be able to get enough of it!

  6. Julie Lundstrom on

    My sister is disabled and has a bad back. I think this would really help her and help so she isn’t in pain all the time.

  7. What I wouldn’t do to have one of these!LOL!I am at the computer most of the day and I have man spots that could use a massage! This one souns like the bomb!

  8. I ask my husband to rub my back every night. this would be great to have so that he can have a break sometimes 🙂

  9. I am looking forward to the deep percussion kneading. I exercise five to seven days a week and I am constantly on the computer throughout the day. I need this to have a massage in house.

  10. I do have problems with my neck and back. This would be wonderful to have, especially since it’s hard to massage your own back! Thanks for posting this review!

  11. I love that it has an optional heat component. Sounds perfect for coming home from a stressful work day in the winter.

  12. I love that you can adjust/choose from so many options. The rolling massage sounds amazing. I just love having my back kneaded, it would be nice to have something like this instead of having to ask my kids to rub my back 😉

  13. I love that there are 3 different styles of massages on it. That is so much better than just the vibrating like the one I have!

  14. This would be a God send for me. I have suffered for years with a bad back and have chronic pain. The options of the massage cuhion are incredible. I think the rolling and kneading are what I’d make use of first. Thanks so much for the review.

    I would love this for my fiancee he is a Quad Dump Truck Driver and spends many hours in his seat. And has to travel in very bumpy conditions. This would so help him with the stiffness and pain in his lower back.

  42. I really need something like this in my life. As I am getting older my back is getting worse and worse. I think I may have to ask for one of these for Christmas!

  43. I too have a small apartment so this is right up my alley. I have actually tried this out at Bed Bath and Beyond and it is so on my Christmas list!

  44. This would be great for someone who is traveling as well as just to have a massage as well and that is what I would LOVE. If you ask my husband I literally ask him for a massage every night and sometimes I don’t always get it 🙁

  45. This looks awesome! I could really use this for my back and I love all of the features, especially being able to change the width.

  46. I love that you have so many options with it. I have terrible back pain. The heat setting would be in use even during the summer for me! The ability to adjust the width, location & type of massage sound wonderful! So glad there is a pocket for the remote too!

  47. My daughter could really use this. She has scoliosis and she’s on her feet for 12 hours a day at work. This would really ease her pain.

  55. This massage cushion looks so awesome! I can’t believe that you can actually talk to it, how cool! As a busy mom of 3 I could definitely use one of these!

  56. Marnie G (Derrick Todd) on

    This looks awesome. My back has been killing me lately. I really like that it has heat also.

  57. Crystal Warnick on

    Would love to have this. I am a stay at home mom and alot of people may say that isn’t back breaking but I beg to differ.

  58. My husband would get a lot of use out of this ! I seem to buy a new heating pad every year, this looks much better than a heating pad.

  59. The heat aspect of this sounds really nice! We live in Michigan and it gets super cold here in the winter so I’d love a massage that was also WARM!

  60. I would love to try this massage cushion with heat. It’s got the best of both worlds; heat and massage. It’s like having your own personal masseuse when you come home from a hard day at work.

  63. Would love to have a back massage everyday… the pain is so bad …this looks so comfortable and easy to use!

  64. I’ve had reconstruction post mastectomy after breast cancer and 9 years alter it is still uncomfortable. If you factor in bitter cold winters this is a great idea

  65. This would be so perfect for my sister-in-law who throws her back out a bit pretty regularly. I know I would get SIL of the year if I gifted her this for Christmas. 🙂

  66. I love that this has customized settings and heat. This would be perfect for back pain and it looks very relaxing.

  67. After reading your review I am so in love with this. I sit so much in a chair all day for work and my back always feels like it is breaking at the end of the day. I can just picture and feel the words rolling massage. It sounds so wonderful.
