If you are looking for a versatile, pain-relieving and relaxing shiatsu massage chair, the Sable Back Massager is a good choice. It provides different types of massages, is a breeze to setup and use and makes you feel just as good as if you were in a spa.

The massager is designed to be installed on any kind of chair with a backing. It also comes with adjustable massage nodes to fit users of different heights.

What are you buying?
1. Neck and Back 3D Massage Nodes
This massage chair has two main sections – the neck massager and back massager. Each section is fitted with deep-reaching nodes that move in 3D motions that imitate human fingers.
As they stimulate your muscles and nerves, the massage nodes increase blood circulation, reduce or eliminate pain and inflammation and relax your muscles.
They also help your mind relax especially after a long day. A 15-minute session in the evening will help you sleep faster and better.
2. Adjustable Nodes
The neck massage nodes can be adjusted up or down depending on your height. As for the back nodes, you can select which ones you want to use. You can select the upper nodes to massage your upper back only, the lower ones to massage your lower back or all of them for full back massage.
You can also set the nodes to massage one target area only. Use the up/down arrow buttons to move the target area higher or lower.
3. Vibration and Heat Functions
In addition to the shiatsu massage, the Sable back massager also provides heat and vibration therapy. The heat feature is great for when it’s cold. It also helps boost relaxation and pain relief.
The vibration function targets your buttocks and upper thighs. It’s helpful when you have aches or stiffness in your legs and thighs. It increases blood flow and improves mobility. Using the attached controller, you can select low, medium or high vibration settings depending on how intensive you want it to be.
4. Comfortable Seat
The seat has a thick padding for maximum comfort. The back is made from mesh fabric for breathability while the seat cover consists of soft PU leather which is easy to clean.
How easy is it to use?
Set up should take no more than two minutes. Just secure it on any chair with a backrest. It can be a sofa, dining chair, car seat or office chair.
Plug it in and then sit on it. There is a wired controller which you use to select modes and settings. The buttons are well laid out with separate sections for the back, neck, spot (target) massage and seat vibration.
There is a handy side pocket where you can place the remote when you are not using it.
Once you switch on the chair and select a specific massage mode, it will automatically switch itself off after 15 minutes. The manufacturer recommends a maximum of two 15-minutes sessions at a time.
What accessories are included?
No accessories are included with this massage chair nor do you need to buy any. But if you plan to use it in your car (not when driving of course) you’ll have to buy a car charger. It only comes with an AC charger.
- Easy to set up and use.
