Looking for an amazing massage at home? See what we think of the Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat here!

Is there anything more annoying than back pain? Getting sharp muscle spasms that make it difficult to concentrate is one thing, but dealing with it while leash training a puppy and dealing with an excited 80 pound dog makes the situation a lot more dire. It doesn’t help that the back pain probably came from both of us rearranging the house and moving a big, bulky desk from our second floor office to the kitchen. While pain killers are obviously a great immediate choice, nothing helps us recover better than a heated massage. When it comes to an impromptu massage, you can’t beat some of Homedics amazing massage products, including their new Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat!

Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat: What is It?

Want to have an amazing massage in your own home office or living room?  If so, we think you will love the Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat. This innovative personal massager has three massage styles and zone control programmed into the cushion itself, allowing you to completely control your massage experience. It is even perfect for individuals who like different massages, allowing you to have a fast massage, invigorating percussion massage, deep muscle kneading massage, or a gentle rolling massage to just help you relax after a stressful day. You can even turn on soothing heat to help relax tense muscles. To make things easier, you can even take advantage of pre-programmed massages in the remote, allowing you to just sit back and relax after two or three button presses, or use the custom  zone control to have a full back ,upper back, lower back, or spot massage. With this easy to use massager, relaxing just became a whole lot easier!

Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat: Overall

As someone who loves Homedics products, I honestly couldn’t wait to get this out of the box and give it a try. After finishing rearranging the house and training a puppy, we were both looking forward to a nice massage.  Not only was it very easy to set up, but we were getting a nice, deep massage right out of the box just by hitting the power button on the remote. As well, doing a custom massage is super easy since you can adjust just about everything using the built in remote. When you are ready to put away the unit, the seat folds neatly against the back, allowing you to store it away neatly either upright or lying on a shelf until later use. Best of all, you can get a massage anytime you like, allowing you to grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and relax as you go on a full Netflix binge. Based on our own experience, we are delighted to give the Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat an A+ rating and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a powerful back massager.

    We have a heated massage cushion but it’s not as nice as this.They really do help .I use mine in the winter even when my back isn’t sore because the heat feels great on my back.

  5. Janel September 30, 2015 at 2:03 pm - Reply

    This looks so comfortable and relaxing, I have issues with my back since I sit at a desk all day long, this really seems like a great investment!

    I work so many hours this would be a nice treat to come home to! like my own personal massage therapist.

    Oh my gosh, this looks soo amazing. I love the fact that it has a heating element in it as well. This would feel so amazing after a long day on my feet at the hospital.

    This looks like it would be great for a sore back. I would use it every day!

    Hello, I’ve previously owned Home Medics products before – they’re well made, and actually does just what they say it’ll do! Back pain is absolutely one of the top three worst , and anything that could possibly releave any of it would be great! Good luck to all, take care – “GOD Bless”, sincerely Randy.

  13. Carolann Leibenguth October 3, 2015 at 10:23 am - Reply

    Wow this is right up my alley and from a company I trust. I suffer from low to mid back pain and I refuse to take pain medication until it is my only option left. Chronic long term pain medication for chronic back pain can open a can of worms in itself. I like the fact that with their product you can control the pressure by choosing your massage and sometimes the heat seams to make it worse for me so being able to choose if I use it or not is nice. I am going to really consider putting this on my must have list so thank you.

  14. Tawny October 3, 2015 at 12:58 pm - Reply

    If I had’ve had this, I would’ve used it as soon as I got up today. I am so cold, due to the immediately 15 degree drop over night, and cramped, this would have brought some much needed relief. I learned a lot from your great review. The different settings, etc. Today, I would use Full and Knead. Great product!

  15. lisa October 3, 2015 at 1:22 pm - Reply

    I like the remote control button. You can really concentrate on the achy areas and adjust the settings to address the area in need of a good massage

  16. Terri S October 3, 2015 at 1:56 pm - Reply

    I would love to have one of these! OMG! It would feel so good at the end of the day. Thank you for your great review!

  17. Fee Roberts October 3, 2015 at 2:59 pm - Reply

    My daughter could really use this. She has scoliosis, so after being on her feet 12 hours a day, this would be a big help to her.

  18. Wendy Price October 3, 2015 at 3:28 pm - Reply

    My parents used to have something like this and I loved it. I hope I can win it.

  19. Carol L October 3, 2015 at 3:47 pm - Reply

    With my troubles this would be a great option for me. I love that it heats while massaging. There are days where I can feel how tight my back muscles are. I’d love to be able to use the deep muscle massage. Thanks for this review.

    As the temps are beginning to drop here, I can only imagine how great this would feel! After the end of a long day, how nice to be able to sit and relax while you get a heated massage! Who am I kidding? That would be great any time of year.

    I would love to have this. Would be a good way to relax after working all day. Also my aunt could use it, too! I wouldn’t mind sharing it!!

    This Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion sounds Heavenly! I sit in my computer chair for the majority of the day and by the time I am ready for bed I ache everywhere! From my tail bone to the top of my head and everywhere in between, my body reminds me of how inactive I have been and supplies a great quantity of tight muscles and lower back pain.
    How I wish I could afford this!

  25. jessica z October 3, 2015 at 8:56 pm - Reply

    I could use this for my lower back. I would take this to school and bring it back home every day!

    This would be awesome to win for our family! The older I get, the more aches and pains I get!

    This looks so nice. I might not leave the house 🙂 I have had vibration seats before, but I think the rolling shiatsu massage would be super nice.

    (Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat Review) This cushion sounds great. I know my husband would like using this after a hard days work on the job. I like that it heats also.

    I wish I had this Homedics Quad Shiatsu ft Cushion last night. I spent the day cleaning and my back was hurting when I finished. With the different settings, I am sure it would of helped relax all the tight muscles I incurred during the day.

    I bought 2 of these years ago but they were so bulky they just got in the way. This new model looks more streamlined with less bulk! I love it! I liked the old models but I think I would LOVE this new one! Good job!

    This looks great! I always feel like I need a massage but I can’t always afford to get one from a real person. This would be a great alternative.

    This sounds like something I could really use. I threw my back out years ago and since then it’s given me some trouble periodically. Oh would this be nice to have.

    Thanks for including your video in your very descriptive, detailed review of this product. It really shows how this massage cushion works on different areas of your back. Hubby and I could benefit from this especially with the heat option. I love how you can use it in any chair and in the comfort of your home.

    Even before I read your review, I knew it’s a must have. As a freelancer in TV production, I work anywhere from 12 -16 hours a day. I know this will be heaven to my back as well as my mothers back. When we go to the mall and pass by Brook Brothers we sit on the massage chairs if they are available and go “ooh, ahh”

  46. Christina Wagner October 4, 2015 at 11:35 pm - Reply

    This would be so awesome to win. I have lower back pain due to a broken tailbone, and often get back spasms. My husband has major back problems due to a wreck several years ago, it would greatly help him too.

    Just what my husband needs! He’s had 3 back surgery’s in the past and I know he would enjoy this. I would too!

    I used to get a massage weekly and no longer can afford to do this and this sounds and looks like a wonderful alternative those massages. I would be very grateful to own a Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat.

    Hi Susan, Your surely right, that meds for back pain only bandage the pain. I was just diagnosed with denigrating bone disorder in my lower spine with Lumbar 3,4,5 collapsing. And the Dr suggested doing strengthening exercises to my muscles so my bones feel less pain. I love massages but can’t afford them so besides trying physical therapy, I practically live with heat ointments or a heating pad on my back. I’ve seen those exercise massage chairs in stores where you pay to use them for relief. I never knew until today, that products like this existed for relief at home. Thank you for introducing Homedics to me today. What a great product.

  67. Brandi Daigle October 15, 2015 at 10:53 am - Reply

    I would give anything for this!!! A few years ago a Mack truck pulled out in front of me on a major highway & I hit his front axle head on & broke it in half so needless to say, I have major back issues & medication isn’t really an option most of the time since I’m a single mother of two! When I said I’d give anything, I truly wasn’t exaggerating….well, anything other than my two reasons for waking up everyday anyway, lol!!! 😉
