Snailax Shiatsu Review – with Heat Massage Chair Pad

The Snailax Shiatsu Massage Cushion can be the next favorite thing in your house, car, or office. This item is entirely built to serve the needs of your back and thighs. It offers muscle tension relief across the entire back thanks to a combination of vibrating massage nodes and the power of heat.


Snailax Shiatsu Massage CushionProbably the most significant thing about this product is its versatility. You can easily change the location of this high-quality massage cushion because it is light and compact. The security straps will allow you to place it on a chair or a sofa in your house, on diverse types of office chairs or on top of the seat in your car. Just make sure there is a plug nearby – the cushion works with electricity power and not with batteries.

The Snailax cushion is flexible when it comes to functionality. First and foremost, it works the most efficiently on the back. The massaging nodes can either cover the whole area of the back or concentrate on specific spots. There are 4 kneading nodes in total – two for the upper back and two for the lower back. Choose from a full back, upper back, and lower back massage according to your necessities. If you experience stronger pain in one place, you can control the cushion to focus on that specific spot.

As already mentioned, the cushion functions through vibration and heat. Once the massaging nodes start working on your back, the heating element soothes the pain even more.

Do not worry that the massage might be too painful for your body. The unit comes with a detachable intensity control flap, which gives you the freedom to change the intensity of the nodes for a softer sensation. If the experience is still too difficult to endure, then you can lean on a blanket or a towel placed on the cushion. When you need to, you can take the flap off and wash it so that it lasts longer.

The cushion is supposed to embrace the natural curves of your body. However, it might still not be able to accommodate everybody with the same effectiveness. It is possible that the lower back nodes do not hit the right spots for people of different heights.

A great addition to this cushion is the seat massager. Unfortunately, it does not include the heating function, but the vibrations are still strong enough to relieve the tension in your hips and thighs. Again, here you can change the intensity of the massager for the most enjoyable results.

One thing you might be worried about is the amount of control you have over the cushion. You can easily change the programs with the help of a corded hand controller. It will give you access to intensity and massage location. The manufacturer has guaranteed your safety by including an overheat protection thermostat in the unit. If anything, you can always refer to the user manual to learn more about how the cushion works.
