Today, I want to talk about aches and pains. In my home, these are commonplace, especially when it comes to my husband. In addition to being a major pain in MY rear, the poor guy also suffers from pretty regular back pain. (Okay, so he's only a pain in my butt occasionally!)
Anyway, Dan has been working in the automotive field for 20+ years. He is in management now, but he spent many years as a technician. All of that bending, squatting, and reaching has definitely taken its toll on him. He often complains that his back hurts, and has taken some pretty interesting measures to alleviate that pain. He uses topical pain relief gel, and even bribes the kids with candy to walk on his back.
This year, I wanted to give him some real relief from his back pain, while sparing my kids from being mini-chiropractors. Thankfully, I knew just where to turn. The folks at HoMedics specialize in creating a healthy home environment so you can relax, de-stress, and simplify your life. While they're best known for their Ah-MAY-zing massage products, they also offer air quality products, sleep and fitness aids, and more!
Before I get into our experience with this product, let me tell you about the features that make this at-home massage cushion a must-have:
- 3D Full Contour Technology – Deep kneading shiatsu nodes move up and down, across, and inward and outward
- Soothing Heat provides added relaxation
- Forward or reverse massage functions
- Convenient easy-to-use hand control
- Adjustable intensity for maximum comfort
Once we removed this cushion from the package, the first thing I noticed was how incredibly well-made it is. The fabric is nice and durable, and can definitely stand up to regular use. That's right! Nothing flimsy here!
This cushion comes with built-in, ultra-stretchy straps so you can secure it to many different chairs. Sadly, it won't secure to our oversized recliner, which is where Dan likes to use it. The good news? It works perfectly just layed onto the chair. Strapping it on hasn't been necessary.
The massage nodes are multi-directional. They move up and down, across, and inward and outward, giving one of the most complete massage experiences available on the market. You will feel relief in muscles you didn't even know you HAD with this massager!
It's funny to watch him as this cushion works its magic on his back. He makes these faces...I won't go into too much detail, but these are faces I don't normally see outside of the bedroom. Basically, I am about 1,000,000% certain that the massaging action feels good for those with back pain. Or those without. Seriously. This cushion is amazing!
If you're looking for a truly luxurious gift for someone in your life who could use a nice massage, definitely check out what HoMedics has to offer. Thanks to this wonderful at home massage technology, stress relief comes at the simple touch of a button.
