Which Massage Chair Brand Is Best?

Which Massage Chair Brand Is Best?

Deciding which massage chair brand is best depends on what you want from your new piece of furniture.

Real Relax, Osaki, Human Touch and Relaxonchair are a number of trusted names renowned for making high-quality massage chairs.

However there are many other brands out there that might offer a product more suited to your needs.

To help you decide which one is right for you, you should start by setting a budget, so you don’t get carried away and blow all your cash on a higher priced model!

Massage cushions that you fix onto a chair in your home are pretty affordable.

If you want the real deal, then massage chairs can range from a few hundred dollars anywhere up to $20,000.

Once you have a budget though you then have to wade through all the different brands to find the right product for you.

When considering which brand to go for there are a number of different questions you want to ask yourself about the manufacturer.

How well established is the company? Are they unknown in the market or a name that people trust?

Human Touch for example have been established for over 40 years, so you know that they create products that will stand the test of time!

Real Relax on the other hand have just eight years under their belt. Despite this they’ve built a solid product range.

Take a look at any of their models on the major retailers and you’ll see that they’re relied on to make high quality yet affordable massage chairs.

Another way you can judge a company is by looking at the length of the warranty that is offered.

Osaki and Titan offer a three year warranty covering both parts and labor.

Of course there will be certain limitations, however it’s a significant length of time and covers all parts, labor and the framework of the chair.

Compare this with Infinity, who offer just one year and you see that it’s worth spending some time considering the differences.

We know doctors recommend massage chairs in general, but do any medical or professional bodies endorse the model you’re considering purchasing?

Knowing trusted bodies endorse certain companies tells you a lot about the quality of their products.

Medical Breakthrough shout about how their chairs are recommended by more than 26 medical professionals.

Doctor of Chiropractic Linda Elyad is one of them. Over the years she has seen how chronic pain has negatively impacted people’s lives, and how the massage chair can help people overcome it.

She also highlighted one of the biggest selling points — you can enjoy regular relief without having to leave your home!

Human Touch are recognized by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) for providing a valid supplement to back-care therapies.

WFC’s Secretary-General, Richard Brown had this to say about their chairs:

Human Touch products are superior in technology, quality, and ability to prevent or alleviate spinal stress, therefore the WFC endorses Human Touch’s products in the treatment and care of back pain and spinal disorders…

The WFC will continue to recommend to patients who suffer from back pain to combine chiropractic care with a Human Touch massage chair or Perfect Chair recliner in order to achieve their overall wellness goals.
