You could seek advice from family and friends who use shiatsu massage cushionbefore buying one yourself, however what works well for another person may actually not be the right choice for you.

Choosing the right cushion can indeed be intimidating, however considering two factors namely, price and primary function, can go a long way in easing the confusion. 


The price of the shiatsu massage cushion may range anywhere from USD 50 to USD 300.  If your budget is under USD 100, your choice naturally narrows down. Once you find cushions in your range, you could compare the cushion features the manufacturer has to offer in that price, as against features of other similar cushions from other manufacturers in the same price range.

Buying a used cushion can be considered if a new one is not available in your price range. However, there are certain risks associated with buying used products.

For example, problems in the merchandise may crop up soon after buying, since it has already been subject to wear and tear. Secondly, you may not be eligible for return and refund in the case of a used massage cushion.

Primary function

Before trying to choose the best cushion, it is essential to decide its basic use and what you need it for.  If you are experiencing tension and stress on your back area, you would need to look for a cushion which would work great on the back area. Similarly if you work long hours on the computer or laptop, you may need a cushion that would relieve stress from the neck and shoulder area. You can also simply get a professional massage and seek advice from the shiatsu masseur or therapist about the kind of cushion that would be best suited for you.
