Finally... you can benefit from the ancient secrets of Shiatsu, a thousand-year-old, therapeutic finger pressure technique developed in Japan. Unlike massagers that vibrate or oscillate, the Kneading Shiatsu Massager employs two mechanical "thumbs" that provide deep, rhythmic kneading of muscles in the back, neck shoulders, feet, arms and legs.
The massager relaxes tight muscles by duplicating the firm hand action of a trained massage therapist. . Tension melts away, and you feel soothed and refreshed.
The media has widely acclaimed the effectiveness of the Kneading Shiatsu Massager, and healthcare professionals around the country employ it in their practices. Wouldn't you like to try it too?
"As a professional massage therapist, I would say that this unit is the closest thing to a real massage you will find, other than the massage loungers."

I've suffered with horrible back pain since I was in my early 20's and have always been a proponent of massage therapy. Life has gotten too hectic and I can't afford regular massages, but the pain just got too great. I needed a massager that would actually work and I was willing to pay extra for it. Those thin, cheap mats that sort of vibrate just don't do the trick. (Or anything for that matter) I've tried decent shiatsu massagers but the price always turned me off. I guess if you are in enough pain, price isn't that important! I've been using it daily since I received it and the effects have been obvious. I bought it in conjunction with a back stretcher since I also no longer get chiropractic treatments and my pain is now controlled. I went from stooped over, in agony, with stabbing neck and sciatic pain, to being able to walk without discomfort. I know I need to keep up with it or I'll just revert back to my hard as rock muscles, but it's worth it to take the time for myself. I use it on my neck, between my shoulder blades, and lower back mostly. I was in such bad shape I hurt terribly the first day after I started but now I am much more pliable. Don't let the price scare you off. If regular massage is important to you, this is a great home product. I control the pressure and point it where I need it. I would rather have a home device that can give me the exact massage I want than pay money for someone to do a halfhearted job. G Brower on 14th Sep 2015
I bought this for my husband since he's a computer guy and works LONG hours in front of the computers. I gather that it will save a lot more money in the long term than going to a professional massager from time-to-time. My husband loves to use the machine whenever he's back from work while he's playing with his XBOX on his reclinder. After that, i will offer him a heated/microwavable neck and shoulder wrap. OH YEAH!!! HE LOVES IT!!! And I use it whenever my back starts to hurt, if i had been spending too much time shuffling the snow. Be honset, it's a very good gift for family too, esp. if you have no idea what to give on their birthdays. Hello Kitty Got Naughty on 14th Sep 2015
