ShiatsuMax 2.0 Back And Shoulder Massager Review
Looking for a very comfortable home massager? Look no further, your answer is right here. With just a simple remote control, you can treat yourself to some tender loving care right in the comfort of your home. This back and shoulder massager was designed with the user’s comfort in mind and comes with 14 massage programs to give the awesome relaxation you need at home.

All you have to do is relax, unwind and allow this massage chair to get to work on your muscles. This massager also gives you the ability to add heat to your relaxing massage experience. Massage technique is also intensified by the addition of heat to your shiatsu massage experience. The addition of heat to your massage helps to penetrate the heat deeper into your muscles as stiff muscles are stretched and loosened.

The positive and not-so-positive sides of this product are listed below for your perusal….

Pros…..

  • Comes with 14 massage programs to help you perfect your home massage treatment. These massage programs include Shiatsu and Rolling massage for a full back massage.
  • Has double massage nodes for deeper massage across the back and shoulders.
  • Users have the option of adding soothing heat to their massage experience.

  • Has an adjustable headrest and fits into most office and home chairs.
  • With the touch of a button, users have the luxury of undertaking a demo to see what exactly the massager has to offer.
  • This massager comes with a secure strapping system to prevent you from slipping off. All you need to this is slip the strap over the back of your chair, adjust and tighten to secure.

Cons…..

  • In order to get some added comfortability, this massager will have to be used on an upright chair with a high back.
  • Without proper adjustment of its settings, users might find the massage technique painful to begin with.
  • If you happen to be someone big, your comfortability could be negatively impacted as the curved raised edges of the seat will very likely dig into your sides.
  • For taller/bigger customers, the neck massage might not be experienced as the furthest massage point might be around the shoulder blades area.
  • It could do with a longer cable. With this current cable length, users will have to sit close to a power socket, plug it in and use.

Do you want to eliminate fatigue and relax? I hope your answer is a ‘YES’. The Shiatsu neck and shoulder massager with heat is your answer.

This product’s quality breathable mesh fabric coupled with its deluxe PU leather gives you an elevated and relaxing massage experience.

This product seeks to give you the ultimate relaxation your body needs. It allows massage effects to penetrate deep into your tensed tissue and muscles.

Lets now take our time to look at both the positive and not-so-positive sides of this product….

  • This product has an optional heating therapy mode and 3 adjustable intensity.

  • Its in-built 15-minute intelligent timer enhances the products safety factor.

Cons…..

  • It is designed to mimic a real hand massage, but it still requires some work to be as good as the real deal.
  • Buttons and heating function can be a bit temperamental. Extra patience required.
  • With its look and design, one would’ve expected it be used even when not plugged into a power source. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
  • People with pacemakers or other types of medical inplants are not to use this product.
  • Some users might find this product a little uncomfortable on the skin to start with.
  • It is recommended you do not use this product for more than 30 minutes a day.

  1. Love the review. Both products seem really interesting to benefit from massages from home. I train a lot and I would not say no to some regular massages. With one of these, particularly the second one, I would be well equipped.
    Thank you for sharing them, I take your article in note!

    • Thanks for the comment, Audrey. Being someone who regularly trains, these products could be very handy. Your body will really thank you for giving at least, one of these products a try. Take care.

  2. Hi Daniel,

    Great post! I had a great massage on the weekend. I ran the Gold Coast Marathon on the 7th July, my first, and boy is it great getting a massage soon after. Toughest run ever and the last 10k? Absolute killer haha! So I really know the benefits of a good massage.

    I had not heard of the body massage products you mentioned so that was really interesting. They look pretty damn amazing so will look further into those. Thanks again,

    Kev

    • Hello Kev, well done for taking part in the Gold Coast Marathon. I can tell it was a really challenging run. You need to be proud of yourself for completing it!

      Thanks for taking the time to read my review. I am not surprised you’ve not heard of these massage products, but am glad you are willing to look further into them. I hope you’ll end up giving at least one of them a try. See you here again soon.
