Just imagine sitting in your car on your way to work. That probably doesn’t conjure up images of relaxation or wellness does it? Well, now imagine it again but this time with the addition of a wonderfully relaxing massage right there in your seat. Add to that a warm heated feeling emanating directly from your seat.
Sounds much more relaxing doesn’t it? Well, thanks to some enterprising souls you too can enjoy the pleasure that a massaging chair pad can give you. Not just in your auto mobile either, you can relax with one of these massage pads in the comfort of your own home whilst watching your favourite show on TV.
Now we’re talking, and better yet you’ll find these massage chair pads cost just a fraction of the price of a full electronic massage chair. Which makes them great for those of us on a smaller budget in these frugal times!
#1 Zyllion Shiatsu Massage Cushion with Heat
Without doubt our number one cushion is the offering from Zyllion. Why you may ask? Well the answer is simple, it’s one of the few massage pads out there that offers a shiatsu massage and not just a bunch of vibrating motors. The shiatsu technique actually kneads and rolls the muscle giving you a much deeper massage than vibrating motors alone. Add heat to this kneading motion and you have a very, very penetrating massage right on up to the neck, which not all of the cushions can reach. It’s head and shoulders above its competition, however this is reflected in its price, coming in at around $160 it’s not cheap!
#2 The Homedics Shiatsu Massage Cushion
Regular readers will be familiar with this offering from the wellness experts at Homedics as we’ve reviewed it here in the past. So there is no need to go into too much details here, suffice to say that you may not be aware but Homedics have an entire range of various different massage pads in different configurations of rollers and heaters, so you’re sure to find the one that is just right for you!
#3 Dr. Scholl’s Soothing Full Cushion Massager
As you might expect from such a world renowned name as Dr.Scholl this massage cushion simply oozes quality. With an impressive 5 vibrating massage motors as well as soothing heat this pad has all you could want. What’s better is that this pad is perfect for use in the office, and at the end of the day, simply pick it up and plug it into your cars cigarette lighter socket and enjoy a massage as you drive home. Making this pad a great option for combating stress at work, and relaxing at home in front of the TV. Fantastic stuff!
#4 Comfort Products 10-Motor Massage Seat Cushion
Another 10 motor cushion this time from Comfort Products featuring the usual AC/car adapter and vibrating motors. What sets this cushion apart from others though is the addition of memory foam in the neck that naturally moulds itself to the contours and shape of your neck, providing the optimal support whilst the vibrating motors do their stuff against the tension in your back. Couple this with lumbar supports and an easy to use controller and we have a winner for sure.
#5 Five Star 10-Motor Massage Seat Cushion with Heat
A relatively new offering bot boasting a very impressive 10 vibrating massage motors which is a lot more than most of its competitors. The Five Star cushion is quite a ways more expensive than the other pads featured here but when you take into account its 10 motors as well as heated cushion it’s not hard to see why. Like our other offerings, it comes with both an AC adapter as well as car adapter making it ideal for use in the office, car or at home.
