Zyllion ZMA14 Shiatsu Neck & Back Review
Now, if you wish to, you could just go out and buy one of the large and fancy full-on massage chairs, of which there are many good options out there.
Two immediate points come up, however. First, are the sheer size and weight of them. They do tend to be rather cumbersome. Second is the cost; they certainly are not on the cheap side. You may even need to remortgage your house to afford some of them!
But fear not, the Zyllion ZMA14 is possibly the cost effective solution for you. This is a customized massage cushion. It will fit into any office or armchair, recliner, or couch, even a straight up dining chair. Simply place yourself upon it and receive a focused, direct, and soothing personal back and neck massage.
Motorized Massage Nodes
The ZMA14 has a secret weapon, four motorized balls.
In rolling mode, these internal balls rotate and move up and down, all across your back and lumbar area. The nodes give a much needed stimulus to your spine without turning. This up-down movement has been designed with careful consultation of the study of somatology, which is defined as the science or study of the human body.
Or, if you prefer, there is a four stage Shiatsu mode…
In this setting, your massage can be set to focus on more specific and hard to reach areas. So, if you are suffering from a sports injury or a continuous pain in one particular place, a focused spot massage could be the remedy you need. The rollers can get that real rolling, deep kneading action.
A point to mention here is that for some buyers, they have found the rollers actually work rather too well. We mean by this that they push rather vigorously, a bit too much for a few.
Adjust to taste…
A width adjustment is in place with the push of a button. So if you are petite or a bit on the ‘larger side’, the cushion nodes can accommodate your size.
We need to point out, however that although you can adjust it to fit your girth, the ZMA14 does have some restrictions when it comes to height. For the taller of you, we are afraid the cushion may not be suitable. By this, we are talking about those of you who stand at the six-foot and above mark.
Neck Massage Nodes
Not only does the ZMA14 create a calm for the stresses and strains of back relief but, also has four separate neck massaging nodes. If you are suffering from a pain in the neck – no pun intended! – these built-in balls are aimed at relaxing knotted neck muscles.
The neck massage balls move up and down, applying pressure, and in turn, relaxing and releasing muscle tension and improving blood circulation.
The ZMA14 has the added bonus of having a heat setting to enhance the rolling massage relief. So, during the massage process, the subtle heating of the cushion helps muscles to relax and benefit from the massage even more.
The heat setting is controlled separately from the massage function. You can have one or the other, or both together. The choice is yours.
As a point of safety, the cushion is fitted with a device to prevent any risk of overheating.
A ZMA14 massage cushion is fitted with three levels of vibration to act alongside the roller nodes. Gentle, medium, and vigorous are the selectable settings.
Depending on your mood, you can go for that slow and soothing, gentle touch. Or, if you prefer, whack it right up to shake the aches and pains away.
Auto Shut Off
Receiving a massage in the comfort of your favorite chair and being totally subdued from the cushion’s massaging effects means you may well drift off to sleep. Due to this and then the subsequent risk of an overheating hazard, the ZMA14 has an automatic shut off.
This is all well and good, but we feel it is a bit premature, as it is set for fifteen minutes. Thirty minutes would be a better set time, in our opinion. Yes, we realize that it is just a simple case of turning it back on. But, annoying if you have just slipped into massage bliss, and then it turns off.
Not quite sure if the Zyllion ZMA14 is the one for you? If so, it’s well worth checking out our in-depth Best Neck and Shoulder Massager reviews, as well as our reviews of the Best Handheld Massagers and the Best Back Massagers.

Zyllion ZMA14 Shiatsu Neck & Back Review Conclusion
The Zyllion ZMA14 does a good job for the price. We like that it is a powerful and comfortable massage cushion. You can adjust the vibration settings, and the heat and nodes work well.
There are, of course, some limitations. For the taller person, it may not reach your full torso. We also think that the fifteen-minute auto cut off is a bit too premature.
Overall though, this is a good little number that will leave you relaxed and refreshed after each session.
So, there we have it folks. Let’s hope that our Zyllion ZMA14 Shiatsu neck & back review has helped to give you an insight into this product. It could be a very good purchase for those of you who don’t want a big, cumbersome massage chair. See ya.
