When do you start your holiday shopping? Do you start the day after Christmas and shop throughout the year? Do you wait to the last minute? Or maybe Black Friday is the kick-off to your holiday shopping. No matter when you actually do your shopping there is no time like the present to start making a list of what you want to get your family and friends. I am determined to start my Christmas shopping early this year so I’m not fretting over whether something is going to ship in time or be in stock.
I have a few ideas for both of my son’s and my daughter is not shy at all about telling me what she wants. It is my husband that is sometimes hard to buy for. He has very expensive taste and often doesn’t talk a lot about what he wants. Last year I took the kids out to purchase gifts for their father and one of the things my oldest son bought him was a small back massager. I wasn’t sure what my husband’s thoughts were going to be but it turned out he LOVED it. He thought it was a great gift.
Fast forward to 2015, where we have now upgraded his small back massager to a full back massage with the Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion from HoMedics.
Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion
We received the Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion to review and each of the family members took a turn. This is not a weak massager by far. The rollers in this massager really work your back and for someone like myself or husband who sometimes come home with a tight back it is perfect. Even my 18 year old son likes to use it once or twice a weak.
We currently have the Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion sitting in a specific spot on our sectional sofa. It now has its own home. It stays plugged in so that at any time someone can sit down and enjoy a personal massage. The Quad Shiatsu comes with a remote control so changing the settings is at your finger tips.
Quad Shiatsu Massage Styles
- Percussion: For fast, invigorating massage
- Kneading: For deep, muscle comfort
- Rolling: For gentle, relaxing massage
I personally love to keep it on full coverage so that it will massage from the top to the bottom of my back using each of the styles. However sometimes I do love to have it concentrate on my lower back which is where must of my aches tend to be. I asked my husband his thoughts on the massager and he said that the main problem for him is that it doesn’t get all of his back. It might be because he is 6′ 1″ so his back is a little longer then little old me at 5′ 4″.
In addition to the three massage styles the Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion can be set to include soothing heat to help comfort tight muscles.
You will definitely feel this massager massaging your back. In fact, I can’t use this massager on a daily basis as it seems that I need some recovering time from using it. Using it daily causes my back to be sore in the area’s that it massages. However when I’m done using the massager my back feels a lot better. This weekend after a long day of rearranging future, grocery, shopping, laundry, and other chores it was a nice way to relax.
The Quad Shiatsu Massager is a great gift for anyone that enjoys a massage but doesn’t have the time (or money) to get one on a regular basis.
