  • 9 Presets: Health, Soft, Quick, Morning, Night, Sport, Shiatsu, Stretch, and TV

  • Patented Noise Reduction Technology: to maximize relaxation and improve health and wellbeing.

With all the options to make the i9 a perfect fit, Luraco realized that in many homes there will be multiple people who will be using it.

What Should You Consider While Buying a Massage Chair for Tall People?

When you are looking for a massage chair, it is important to keep in mind that not all massage chairs are created equal. If you are tall, you will need to find a massage chair that is specifically designed for people who are taller than average. Here are a few things to keep in mind while you shop for the perfect massage chair for tall people:

  • Look for a massage chair that has an extendable leg rest. This will allow you to get the full benefit of the massage, regardless of your height.
  • Make sure that the backrest of the massage chair is long enough to support your back. You should also look for a massage chair with an adjustable backrest so that you can find the perfect position for your height.
  • Choose a massage chair with a wide range of massage settings. This way, you can customize the massage to your specific needs and preferences.
  • Pay attention to the weight limit of the massage chair. You want to make sure that the massage chair can accommodate your weight without any issues.
  • Ask about the warranty and return policy before you make your purchase. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a quality product that will last for many years to come.

How Long is Too Long in a Massage Chair?

The duration of time spent in a massage chair is a critical consideration to ensure both the effectiveness of the massage and your overall well-being. While the benefits of using a massage chair are well-documented, there is indeed a point at which spending too long in a massage chair can have adverse effects. To determine how long is too long in a massage chair, one must consider several factors, including the chair’s design, individual tolerance, and health goals.

  1. Chair Design and Features: High-quality massage chairs are designed to provide effective and therapeutic massages without causing harm, even during extended sessions. These chairs often include safety features to prevent overheating and overuse. However, cheaper, less sophisticated models may not have these safeguards.
  2. Individual Tolerance: The optimal duration for using a massage chair can vary from person to person. Some individuals may find that 15 to 30 minutes of daily use is sufficient to achieve their desired relaxation and pain relief, while others may tolerate longer sessions without issue. It’s crucial to listen to your body and adjust the duration accordingly.
  3. Health Goals: Your health goals and the specific issues you are targeting with the massage chair play a role in determining the appropriate duration. For general relaxation, shorter sessions may suffice. However, if you are using the chair to manage chronic pain or specific musculoskeletal conditions, longer sessions might be necessary, under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
  4. Potential Risks: Prolonged use of a massage chair can lead to issues such as muscle soreness or skin irritation. These risks can be mitigated by using the chair as directed, maintaining proper posture, and periodically adjusting the intensity of the massage.
  5. Hydration and Comfort: Extended sessions in a massage chair can lead to dehydration and discomfort. It’s advisable to stay hydrated before, during, and after using the chair and to take short breaks to stretch and reposition yourself to maintain comfort.
  6. Consulting a Healthcare Professional: If you have underlying medical conditions or concerns about using a massage chair for an extended duration, consult a healthcare professional for personalized guidance. They can help you determine the appropriate length of sessions and frequency.

In summary, how long is too long in a massage chair depends on various factors, including the chair’s design, individual tolerance, health goals, and potential risks. As a general guideline, most people can enjoy 15 to 30-minute massage chair sessions daily without adverse effects. However, if you plan to use the chair for longer durations, it’s crucial to pay attention to your body’s signals, maintain proper hydration, and seek professional advice if you have any concerns about its impact on your health. Ultimately, moderation and self-awareness are key to maximizing the benefits of a massage chair while minimizing the risks of overuse.
