Buyer's Guide

Whether you buy from us or not, we're happy to help!

Massage Chairs and the Internet - Buying a massage chair because of its reviews  or other things you've read about it, won't tell you how well it actually fits you, or how well it'll perform for your specific needs. 

Also, reviews and review related websites are marketing tools for many of today's companies....  

For the best results from a robotic massage chair, it should accommodate the user's size, shape, and sensitivity level, which is why you should try it before you buy it, or at the very least, talk to a professional prior to purchase.

If your massage chair doesn't fit your body as well as it could, or perform the way you hoped it would, chances are you won't use it enough to experience the therapeutic benefits of regular massage.

Massage Chair Quality - There are huge variations in the price points of massage chairs on today's market, and at first glance, they all look somewhat alike, and appear to have many of the same features. 

The reason the prices vary as much as they do, is due to the quality of the components used during construction, the design and the features of the chair, the quality of the company behind the product, and the quality of services they actually provide.

The bottom line - Like anything else, you'll get what you pay for.

Massage Chair Budget - If you're considering the purchase of a massage chair to do your own in home or office therapy, but feel that spending thousands of dollars does not seem cost effective, factor in the time, the travel expenses, and the co-pays, and you may find that the purchase of a quality massage chair will pay for itself.

S -Track or an L-Track - Which is a better massage chair for you?
The advantage of an S-Track massage chair, is the Stretch program
may be more effective, because the S-track's backrest is a separate component from the seat, giving the design a greater range of motion and flexibility.

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.
L-Tracks also have a Stretch program and they do accomplish the task, but the actual stretch may not extend as far as a few of the S-tracks, because the backrest and seat are a single component. 

Please note that all massage chairs quality of stretch vary, and some L-tracks' Stretch programs are as, or more effective than some S-tracks out there.. 

2D, 3D, or 4D - When we're talking about 2, 3, or 4D massage chairs, we're referring to the method used to adjust the intensity of the roller massage. 

2D - This model adjusts the intensity of the rollers, by changing the angle of the backrest. The further back the chair is reclined, the more intense the roller massage will be, because more of your body weight is over the rollers.

3D - This model has the ability to adjust the rollers out and away from the roller track, providing adjustable roller intensity at the remote. Width is the 3rd dimension. 

4D - There is no difference between a 3D and 4D massage chair. The rollers 4 dimensions are in, out, width, and roller speed adjustments, which is standard on 2D and 3D massage chairs

Space Saver - An important thing to consider when shopping for the right massage chair, is the amount of space you have for its placement. 

Some chairs require as much as 22" of space behind it, to allow the chair to fully recline. 

Space savers require much less, and can be placed as close as 2" to a wall, depending on the model.

Floor Models - If you’re considering buying a floor model, consider where you’re buying it from.
If you find one in 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, and it’s use has been properly supervised.

Choose your massage chair dealer wisely - Your massage chair dealer should provide massage chair services as needed. 

Like any other industry, quality of service will vary from place to place, especially when you're out of warranty.
