The Beurer MG145 shiatsu massage pillow lets you massage your back one day, and your legs the next. That's because the massage pillow is compact, allowing you to easily use it on different parts of your body. The 4 massage heads let the pillow simulate a shiatsu massage. It feels like someone is massaging your back with the palms of their hands and their finger tips. You also have the option to switch on the heat function to give your massage that extra something. Do you use the pillow a lot? Then you might need to wash it every now and then. The pillow cover can simply be removed and be put in the washing machine.
