Review: Best Massage Cushions

Massage Cushions are a popular way to massage the back, neck, legs, buttocks and more. Why? Because they are comfortable and easy to relax with, while treating yourself to a stress relieving massage. With many to choose from, I have compiled a list of my top 5 choices based on function, ease of use, comfort and effectiveness. And I didn't forget price. Below are the choices that give you the best massage cushions in 2021 for the price.

Best Massage Cushion

Homedics Therapist Select Shiatsu Massage Cushion

HoMedics Therapist Select Shiatsu Pillow offers comfort and function in one great massage. It tops my list for its spot shiatsu technology for targeted relief, along with rotating nodes, that soothe sore muscles within minutes. It works great for neck, back, shoulders and even the legs and buttocks. Wherever you place the pillow, it goes to work. And the soft, cushion is comfortable to lay on for the ultimate massage right at home.

A top choice for cushion massagers is the Prosepra Kneading Massager Cushion. This ultra thin and light weight cushion can be used at home, in the office and even in the car.

HoMedicsShiatsu Plus Massage Cushion

The shoulder messager is height adjustable, while the back massager is width adjustable and features spot Shiatsu. Both include heat and with 6 programs to choose from, there is a massage that will fit your every need.
