The Gideon six program massage cushion is a small yet capable unit. This massage chair pad uses 4 massage nodes to provide a comfortable back massage. The cushion is silent, and you can use it while you’re at home or at your office.
Features And Programs
One of the best features the Gideon massage cushion has to offer is the use of the 4 massage nodes. Unlike usual rollers, these massage nodes are capable of providing a deep-tissue massage, so your muscles will feel great after every massage session. These massage nodes are specially designed to simulate the hand movements of massage therapists, and they will mimic the kneading and shiatsu massage techniques.
You can choose between having the rollers massage your upper back, your lower back, or you can choose to have a full back massage. The rollers move up and down along your back, but they can be limited to massage a certain area when you want them to.
A great thing about this massage cushion is that you can adjust the massage’s speed. There are two-speed settings you can use, each with its own advantage. The low-speed setting is better for relaxing massage sessions when you’re tired and want to enjoy a massage while you’re watching your favorite TV series. The high-speed setting is better suited for when you feel your back muscle tense. This setting will make the massage nodes work your muscles thoroughly, relieving the tension they accumulated during the day.
The spot focus feature is very helpful, especially if you suffer from back pain. This feature will allow you to move the massage nodes up and down your back and stop them where you want. After making sure the nodes are in the right position, you can start the massage session. You can increase the massage’s intensity by leaning against the cushion’s backrest. The more you push, the more intense the massage will feel.
This unit’s seat cushion uses a vibration feature to massage your buttocks and lower back muscles. There are three intensity levels you can choose from. The lowest intensity level will feel like a soft caress while the highest level will shake you through and through. This feature is designed to stimulate your blood circulation.
The Gideon massage cushion uses an adjustable timer function. You can select the length of the massage sessions yourself. You can choose between five, ten, or fifteen-minute sessions. After a session is over, the massager will shut-off. This is a good safety feature, and it will protect the unit’s motors and save energy if you forget to turn it off after a massage. However, if you want to enjoy a longer massage, you can simply restart the unit as soon as the session ends.

Warranty And Service
This unit comes with a 1-year warranty. The warranty applies for all the manufacturing and workmanship defects.
- Good Heating Function – This unit’s heating function works well, and it will radiate warmth across your back. The heated massage will do a great job at relieving the tension in your muscles, and it’s very relaxing.
- Adjustable Massage Speed – You can adjust the speed of the massage nodes as they move across your back. This is a great option, as it allows you to personalize your massage experience.
- No Neck Massage Option – This massage cushion doesn’t have a headrest, so it won’t massage your neck. The massage nodes will reach your upper back, but they won’t reach your neck even if you’re short.
- Not Good For Tall Users – This massage cushion is rather small, so it won’t be very effective for tall users. If you’re tall, the massage nodes won’t reach your upper back at all.
