4 Star Review   By member xavierok - Oct 25, 2008   

Strengths: Does massaging with heat using fairly balanced strength

Weakness: looks not high quality

It's a good random massaging machine. My mom loves it. I had tried 400h and this 200H. This one is even better than 400H, which is more expensive. The 400H has 4 rollers, but its massaging movement feels very stiff.

Homedics SBM-200H Therapist Select Shiatsu Massaging
5 Star Review   By member slickguy - Sep 2, 2008   

Strengths: Provides a nice massage and the right amount of heat on the back. Fits most of the chairs. Works on both lower and upper back.

Weakness: Wish if there was way to control the heat intensity and if there was a way to adjust the range of motion of the rollers - the lower/upper back control is good enough.

This product does a pretty good job of providing an automatic massage. The heat option does a great job and it is nice to have the full back, upper back, or lower back options. Once placed on a chair, plugged in, and sat upon - the "shiatsu" massage feels really nice. Some massages have too much pressure and others not enough, this felt just right. This model is limited to the rolling shiatsu action which gets the long muscles beside the spine. The massager is fairly limited in what it does. It will not reach your neck or head, and is only recommended for the back. It has 4 basic settings: 1. Demo 2. Full Back 3. Upper back 4. Lower back. I would have appreciated some more control like arrow buttons on some massages that let you directly control where the rollers are. The one major criticism I would have of this product is that it has a tendency to pinch in portions of the back since it doesn't really adjust to the curve of the spine. Also, the massager automatically goes off every 15 minutes, so if you are sitting at your desk for a long session of computer work, you have to restart the massager with the remote every 15 minutes.

Homedics #SBM-200H Shiatsu Massage Cushion
1 Star Review     

Strengths: good massage action when good contact is made

Weakness: doesn't countour to many office chairs so full back massage is impossible. Very noisy.

I tested this in a store in St. Louis at Xmas (might have been Sam's club) and again at Bed Bath & Beyond in Gresham OR when I got home. In both demo chairs the system supported my back and provided an excellent massage, so I bought one, only to find that I could get lumbar support with it in my desk chair, so bought another desk chair - still no lumbar support or massage plus it makes a comfortable chair uncomfortable.

Handy massage cushion
3 Star Review   By member sssxyz - Feb 21, 2008   

Strengths: Price, heat, handy

Weakness: One massage mode, limited setting, durability

I got this Shiatsu Message Cushion during the Thanksgiving sales. The price was good (no WOW factor though). This version comes with heat during the massage. The heat does help the muscle to relax. The deep message may take some time to get use to. It is relatively portable so I can strap on any chair or take it along with me. However, this message cushion only has one message mode and no wide adjustment. The number of setting is very limited. No sure how durable the material will be. Well, I cannot complain too much.

Homedics #SBM-200H Shiatsu Massage Cushion
5 Star Review   By member DorisMorris - Dec 5, 2007   

Strengths: Very good massage, good heat, comfortable cushion

Weakness: I hear a clicking noise in the rotating mechanisms & am hoping this is NORMAL....

Would like to be able to 'pause' the rotating action in one particular spot, but perhaps that option is not available due to the fact that it is not beneficial to the body....
