Massage Chair Buyer’s Guide - 2018
Quality of massage chairs.
These are the 2 types of massage chairs on the market.
Quality massage chairs, and "bargains" that imitate quality.
They both look alike in their ads, using the same type of illustrations and hype in their descriptions, but that's where the similarity ends.
The comfort level, the quality of the massage, and the reliability of a "bargain "massage chair, won't come even close to that of a quality massage chair.
They may have appealing price points, and appear to be of premium quality, but I promise, you will get what you pay for.
Quality always has and always will, come with a cost.
Your Massage Chair Budget
Regular use of a massage chair, may lessen the need for regular visits to therapy.
Also consider the time saved and the convenience, by doing your own therapy, in your own home or office.
Combined, this should all play a big part, when calculating how much you're willing to invest in your massage chair.
S-Track or an L-Track
Which is a better massage chair for you?
The advantage of an S-Track massage chair, is that the Stretch program can be more effective than an L-Track's, because the backrest of an S-track is a separate component from the seat, giving the design a greater range of motion.
The Stretch program helps with spinal decompression, which relieves the pressure between the discs, alleviating back pain and other compression symptoms.
The advantage of an L-Track, is that the roller mechanism has a substantially longer reach, traveling under the seat and relaxing more of your muscles and connective tissues, which is advantageous for Sciatica.
L-Tracks also have a Stretch program and they do accomplish the task, but the actual stretch may not extend as far, because the backrest and seat are one component.
They both should have a waist twist/sway program, which helps to relax the muscles and connective tissues in the lower back.
The stretch and the waist twist both help to promote the movement of oxygen, water, and nutrients into the lower lumbar region, so for best results, drink plenty of water after your session.
If you’re considering buying a floor model, consider where you’re buying it from.
If you find one in a mall or a big box store, chances are that it’s been used a lot, and at times without proper supervision.
The motors may have been subjected to hours of non-stop use without adequate cool down time.
If you find one in a privately run store, chances are it’s been used much less than a chair found at a mall, and it’s use has been properly supervised.
Choose your massage chair dealer wisely
Part of your massage chair dealers' responsibility, is to provide quality service to any massage chair that they sell.
Most dealers use 3rd party service companies, which really can be hit or miss, because there's no telling who will show up at your door.
It's highly recommended to research the reputation, and the availability of 3rd party affiliates.
It may be the best time investment of this whole process.
