Mat Massager is guaranteed to provide you soothing massage relief for years to come. We’ve designed Mat Massager for convenience and safety.

To reactivate Mat Massager, simply press any button. Any time you change massage functions, the timer will reset. This special feature should not be considered as a substitute for OFF. Always remember to turn your unit off when not in use. HoMedics is dedicated to bringing you better health through innovation. However, you should never substitute this, or any other manufacturer’s massager, for professional medical attention. Persistent ailments and symptoms could indicate a more serious condition.
