Massage, these days can no longer be deemed as a luxury. Along with the advancement of technology, the difficulty of the challenges met by the people progresses as well. Irrespective of where one is, he is most likely to get stressed. The workplace is one area wherein pressure is high. Yet, we cannot also discount the weight of people who stays at home to manage the household. It is not surprising that massage chairs are getting to be a must-have item at home. It is where the weary people go first after a full day at work not just to get rest, but to be invigorated as well.

Massaging can be considered as the oldest and simplest therapy form. It can heal the worn out body and improve one’s health being. It has lots of benefits. It could improve the blood’s circulation as the body relaxes. It also improves a person’s breathing. It relieves tension and cluster headaches as it alleviates the stress accumulated each day; thus it also lightens depression. It also reinforces the body’s immune system so that we can lessen the risk of having various diseases and ailments.

The ideas and benefits stated above are some of the reasons why numerous spas have sprouted. Everywhere you can see health centers that offer different services. There are lots of kinds of massage therapy styles that have been developed in order to cater to the different preferences of the clients. Some of which are Swedish, Aromatherapy, Hot Stone, Thai and Deep tissue massage. There are also some types that are suitable to people with special needs like the Pregnancy massage and Sports massage for the pregnant women and athletes respectively.

Another type is Shiatsu massage that originated in Japan. It is a type of bodywork that makes use of localized pressures of fingers in a regular succession. It also utilizes acupressure methods like applying deep tissue pressures on twelve meridians in the body. The body parts that are employed in applying Shiatsu massage are the thumbs, hands, elbows and knees.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB!!, November 27, 2008
This review is from: Homedics SBM-500H Therapist Select Shiatsu One Massaging Cushion with Heat (Health and Beauty)

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!!

4.0 out of 5 stars It works works hard for the money, July 27, 2008

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.
