Always avoid working directly over the spine, unless you are using extremely gentle, or feathering-type strokes. Work into the muscles either side of the spine instead.

Repair manual for 257097

Hello, Deborah -

I am not finding an online repair manual for the Brookstone Shiatsu Foot Massager, model 257097.

If you have not already done so, you could call or email the Brookstone Customer Care phone number and ask a representative about the availabilty of such a manual or a location where you can take or send your massager for repair.

This is the link to the Brookstone Contact Us web page:

The phone number is in the upper right corner of the page, or you can complete the form there to send an email.

Note: A manual I found online (PDF document, Adobe Acrobat Reader software needed - free) for a different Brookstone foot massager, model BR-7100A, gives the following warning:
To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble or attempt to repair the unit. Incorrect repair can cause risk of electric shock or injury to persons when unit is used.

What massage oil is best for using on babies?

You can pretty much use most mineral or vegetable oils for massaging your baby. Some people prefer to use safflower or grape seed oils as they are high in linoleic acid which helps protect skin.

If your baby has sensitive skin, it's probably best to avoid olive oil or sunflower seed oil as they can cause irritation.

Are electric massage chairs dangerous for someone with a broken back?

It is dangerous to get a massage directly on the area where you have a broken bone because it can cause extreme pain and discomfort, and can sometimes re-break the bone. It can be helpful to massage the area surrounding the bone in order to help bring more blood to the area, but a massage directly on the area should be avoided. If you know your massage chair very well and you can set it to stay only in the area near the broken bone, then it is okay. If not, then a manual massage from a massage therapist is safer because you can tell him/her the area to stay away from

Is it worth buying a massage chair in replacement of going to my weekly massage appointments at the spa?

I think so. Let's face it; although massage chairs can be expensive, they are a one-time fee that will pay off in the long run; whereas seeing a masseuse every week is an ongoing cost. Even putting price aside, buying a massage chair adds a level of convenience to your life. Having a massage chair in your home is like having a therapist on call 24/7.
