I have many Homedics products so when WSR asked me to review the new ShiatsuMax 2 I was so excited.
Very easy to put together takes a few seconds. you do need a comfortable chair for the massager to sit on, one preferably with a long back

I need something for when I finish my workouts in the gym, I can have a bath and then relax on the Shiatsu Max so I was hoping that it lived up to all the hype. Alot of my tension is in my rotator cuff muscles and the rollers on the Max was spot on, it made such a difference in only a few days. You can try many different programmes Shiatsu, rolling or spot take your pick. There are many different programmes to choice from and you can try as many as makes you happy. I loved the feel of the chair very comfortable and you can choose to have the vibration seat on for your legs or not it's entirely up to you. If you suffer from lower back pain it's fantastic, I have bouts of sciatica so I am waiting to try it out on that. But the lower back massage is intense and very beneficial I sometimes rub some natural oils in before I sit on the chair as I am the only one that's using it.

You can buy them for around £140 online an absolute bargain, definitely the best massage chair from HM that I have tried.

Excellent job HM



As the leading innovators in home massage, we’ve always got your back. So much so, that we’ve decided to give the much loved ShiatsuMax a makeover. Boasting a new style and some new features, we’re excited to introduce the ShiatsuMax 2.0 into your home.

The ShiatsuMAX 2.0 is designed to easily target aches and pains, using a simple remote control and up to 14 massage programs. Personalise your massage at home by choosing from a variety of techniques. In addition to our signature Shiatsu, we’ve treated you to Rolling, Spot Shiatsu and a Vibration massage too.


The Only Shade of Grey

A soothing grey in muted tones to stylishly sink into any living room scene. Far from boring, we’ve chosen a shade that’s little more complex than our original cream to complement almost every colour palette.

The Perfect Fit

Every body is different, so we’ve designed the headrest and seat to be adjustable for ultimate comfort throughout your massage. We’ve also added an adjustable function to the height and width of the massage reach so you can be sure we’re hitting the right spot every time.


Personalise your Massage

With a full demo to get you started and up to 14 massage programs to mix and match, you can choose from Shiatsu, Rolling, Vibration and Spot Shiatsu massage to create a massage sequence that suits you. The soothing heat function is optional too, so when you’re ready to intensify your massage, simply activate heat to enjoy an increasing warmth.

Low maintenance

With a removable back cover and resistant material, keeping your ShiatsuMAX 2.0 in pristine condition is delightfully simple. You can remove your back cover and pop it in the wash at 40’C. For the rest of your massage chair, it just needs a simple wipe down with a warm, damp cloth.

Secure strapping system

As your mind relaxes, you’ll find your body will too. Unlike other massage chairs, when this happens you won’t find yourself actually slipping away. Our sturdy strapping system makes the ShiatsuMAX 2.0 the perfect fit for most office and home chairs. Simply place the massager onto the chair and secure using the adjustable strap.

Instant relief

The hustle and bustle of everyday life can often mean a sudden ache or twinge goes untreated. A trip to a masseuse can cost time and money that you’d rather not part with. Keeping a back massager at home means you can find instant relief and some “you time”, without finding time for an appointment or having to pay per session.

Reduce muscle tension

We often neglect our body’s signals. Whether your work is excessively physical or you find yourself hunched over a desk every day, your posture and muscle conditioning will suffer as a result of long-term discomfort. Try mixing and matching the variety of our massage therapies, they’re non-invasive and perfect for treating lumbar ailments.

Release and increase your endorphins

An invigorating massage will increase your production of endorphins, the “feel-good” chemical that reduces feelings of stress and naturally lifts your spirit.

A deep, kneading massage using circular motions and “finger-like” nodes to reproduce the experience of a real Shiatsu massage therapist. A perfect choice for relaxation and loosening tight muscles.


After some kneading action from the Shiatsu massage, a switch to Rolling is a good move. Like two hands and thumbs running up and down the length of your back, it’s a great way to stretch and soften the muscles.


Once comfortably seated into your massage chair, activate the Vibration massage and enjoy an An invigorating treatment to the upper legs/thighs.

Spot Shiatsu

If you want to target an area that requires a little extra TLC, then simply adjust the position of the rotating massage mechanism using the Spot Shiatsu controls. A little further up, or slightly further down, inch the nodes until they perfectly positioned to really hit the spot.
