Dear Darling Hubby got me a back massage machine from Sharper Image for my birthday. It's absolutely the greatest thing I own! If we had a fire I'd grab this before the wedding pictures! (Just kidding!) I set it on Shiatsu with heat and although the first run is painful, as I relax into it I just plain melt. I'm able to undo a two hour grocery store 'romp' in about 14 minutes. I use it about twice a day and wish I were rich because I'd get you all one.

Great news.

Isn't massage wonderful?  During my last flare, I was having horrible muscle spasms in my thighs; I actually think the solumedrol was part of the problem.  I bought an inexpensive hand held massage thingy..............sorta looks like ETs head. It has two big red spheres that heat up and vibrate.  I would run that over my thighs and I had no pain for an hour or so.  It kept me from eating pain pills while I was on the solumedrol.  I love that thing. 

Jeannie,

I am so glad you found something that truly helps.  That is so great!!!

Sounds wonderful! I have a Homemedics ****su massage pad that I love, but no heat.
The heat with it would be great, time for me to go shopping!
 
Happy Birthday Jeannie, hoping all your birthday wishes come true!!!!

I was wondering if those were any good.  May ask for one for Christmas.  Glad this is helping you!

Happy birthday Jeannie!!! BB&B has three or four on display and Ken and I were trying them out one day and I found the Shiatsu too rough on my back but he thought it felt good. I found one in my office closet when I was cleaning that heats up and vibrates. I have him trained pretty good in massaging my back so think I will stick to him. Guess if there is a fire I will grab him first. smilewinkgrin

Happy Birthday, Jeannie!  I have a pad that sits in the chair and vibrates and you can change the intensity.  It also has heat and it is wonderful like your back massager.  I'm so happy you found something that helps you like that!

You are all so sweet. I wasn't fishing for birthday wishes but I'll take all I can get. This one was at BB & beyond and I tried them all before deciding which one I liked. I was going to get it for myself but daughter reported to her dad before I got the chance to get it.

Word to the wise! Try them all for at least 5 minutes each. The one I like took me a minute to get used to, and felt too rough at first. I'm glad I got it though because it's perfect for me. I already have a vibrating chair cushion in my office chair and this massager is entirely different.

Have to look into that hand held, Gretchen. Sounds like a winner!

We bought one tonight. We got the one with ****su that massages the neck and back separately. Our anniversary is in a couple of days, so it is our anniversary present to each other.
