Features and Programs

Snailax Shiatsu Kneading Massager SL 256 5We do not know how we are going, to sum up, all the wonderful traits of this elegant and effective massage cushion in this discussion. However, let us give a try. Let us start with the fact that the Snailax shiatsu massage cushion is top of the shelf product, simply because it does exactly what you want from a massager. Yes, it provides you the ultimate comfort that you have been running after for so long now. The Snailax chair cushion features leather that has the smoothest mesh, hence elevating the massage experience to the next level.

Ah, but that is hardly why this product is so popular. Snailax vibration massage seat cushion comes with two built-in vibratory nodes. These nodes are also the reason why you get a variation in the intensity as well. You can switch between the two intensity levels, and settle for a massage that provides utmost relief to your hips and thighs. Note that in the sitting area, you are offered only a vibrational massage and no heat. Which brings us to our next item on agenda, i.e. Heat. The Snailax shiatsu massage cushion with heat is a wonderful tool to heat your tired back, all the lumbar area. Because of continuous fatigue that we experience at our workplaces, these areas get tired the most. The Snailax massage chair with heat is a perfect solution for your problems.

The most important feature of any massager is, of course, its massage nodes. The Snailax SL-256 shiatsu massage cushion comes with four such nodes that provide a very deep kneading massage. It is these nodes, which take care of fatigue, which spreads throughout your back. A good thing about these massage nodes is that these are flexible. Hence, you can change their position, and customize the massage experience to your requirements. This massager also offers a spot massage, which is something not found in all massagers. You can direct the massager to a particular stress point in the body, or a part that hurts the most. There are three main massage zones, which can help you have a spot massage. These are full back, upper back and the lower back.

We talked about how awesome the heating therapy of Snailax shiatsu massage cushion with heat is. Adding more to that awesomeness is the overheating safety mechanism, the protective thermostats that make sure unpleasant incidents are avoided take place.
