Photo of author
We spent 100+hours testing , analyzing and interviewing people, and shuffling through countless online reviews. What is the conclusion?

FIRST: Considering that 400+ quality massage chair models available to buy right now (and that is ONLY from TOP Brands), most massage chairs are similar to each other in many ways.
SECOND: If you don’t want to spend 24k to 45k dollars on a chair (such as Luraco i9 Max Royal Edition) , but still want the best features, real-life-like massage function, premium design and comfort there are only a few choices. Japanese-made OHCO M.8 Massage Chair is the best chair available right now for the best all around full-body massage. Calf and neck rollers taking this chair to another level beyond most of it’s competitors. If you want full-body heat (even including hands and forearms), USA made Luraco i9 is another great choice. If you like intense massage combined with space saving design with entertainment options including Alexa and Altec Lansing speakers Human touch Super Novo is a great choice.

This is the recommended maximum weight. The manufacturers advise that if you weigh more than that, the external surfaces may wear faster and the internal mechanics are more likely to be damaged.

A massage from a professional cannot replace it

A professional masseuse’s hands can never replace the flexibility and expertise of their hands.  

Fixed functional capacity

There are only a few areas of your body that can be physically reached through rollers on massage chairs, so they can only work on those areas. You cannot expect your massage chair to take care of a more specific part of your body if you need a deeper massage or you are looking to cover a specific part of your body with the massage.

What Are The PROS Of USING a Massage Chair?

  • Less pain

Many areas of the body can benefit from the regular use of a massage chair. The lower back is one area where massage is particularly effective. Excessively tight muscles due to a variety of reasons begin to relax, lower back pain tends to decrease. Acupuncture or medication may not be as effective for many people as massage in reducing lower back pain. The massage chair may be an effective addition to your treatment plan as long as you follow your doctor’s directives.

  • Reduced Headache Pain

There is a possibility that migraines and headaches, in general, may be caused by muscle tension. The best massage chairs may reduce headache frequency and intensity by reducing or eliminating muscle tension.

  • Faster workout recovery.

Lactic acid is produced by your muscles when you exercise vigorously. When you exercise vigorously, your muscles produce lactic acid. Lactic acid is gradually removed from your muscles by your body as it is processed. Best massage chairs can help you recover from workouts faster and more fully, as athletic trainers and athletes both attest.

  • Lower blood pressure

We often experience muscle tension in important areas of the body as a result of our hectic schedules, particularly the neck and shoulders. Your blood pressure and heart rate can then be elevated by that tension, which stimulates your sympathetic nervous system. In addition to heart disease, stroke, and kidney damage, high blood pressure (also called hypertension) increases the risk of many other conditions. As a healthy counterbalance to daily stress, massage is very helpful. The parasympathetic nervous system exists to moderate the effects of the sympathetic nervous system. As a result, best massage chairs help restore balance to your body and help maintain a healthy heart rate and blood pressure.

  • Improved immune function

A stressed body may have a suppressed immune system, making you more susceptible to disease. Massage enhances the function of your immune system by helping you relax. Massage does not prevent illnesses, but it can help your body better defend itself by creating the conditions for it to do so.

  • Lower cortisol levels. 

In times of crisis, cortisol increases the body’s “fight or flight” response. Even though it is necessary and important in certain situations, elevated levels of cortisol can yield a number of issues in the body. Having a massage can help lower cortisol levels and reduce the body’s response to stress.

Can I Use A Massage Chair Every Day? 

Every day, you can enjoy 15-20 minutes of using a massage chair. A mild health issue may arise from overuse. Before using a massage chair, consult your doctor if you have a severe medical history. For maximum massage benefits, use it no more than three to four times per week. You can schedule yourself to use it every other day while at home by setting a schedule.

Most high-quality massage chairs may $5,500 or more. You may lose out on certain features if you have a lower budget. You can find the massage chair you love with 0% interest for a certain period of time with some companies!

Where to Buy Your Massage Chair?



You can buy massage chairs online, in retail store near you, and even rent them. Where to buy your massage chair depends on your budget, the type of chair you want, and what features are important to you.

Online retailers offer a wide variety of massage chairs and many offer free shipping or discounts. Shopping online allows you to compare prices, read reviews, and get detailed information about the chair before you purchase it. Online retailers often have lower prices than in-store retailers because they don’t need to pay for a physical store location.

In-store massage chairs are typically more expensive than online retailers, but they offer the convenience of being able to try out a chair before you buy it. This is especially important if you’re looking for a specific type of massage chair or want to be sure that it will fit your body type and provide the right kind of massage.

What should I look for in a massage chair?

First, it is important to make sure that the massage chair you choose provides enough coverage for your body size and shape. It should be wide enough to accommodate your shoulders and support your neck properly. Additionally, check whether the chair features adjustable rollers and/or massage heads that can move up and down allowing you to customize your massage.

Second, consider the types of massage techniques available in the chair. Some massage chairs offer Shiatsu, Swedish, Deep Tissue, or even reflexology massages. Make sure that the chair you choose offers a variety of massage techniques that can accommodate your needs.

Finally, look at the comfort features of the chair. Is it adjustable to fit different body sizes? Are there any additional features such as heat or air massage? Also, check whether the chair comes with an integrated sound system so you can relax with music while receiving your massage.

At what age can you use a massage chair?

Generally, it is recommended that children under the age of 12 do not use massage chairs. Massage chairs put a strain on the body and might not be suitable for children who are still growing. However, this is a general guideline and each child should be evaluated on an individual basis to determine if they can safely use a massage chair. If you have any doubts, speak to your doctor before allowing a child to use a massage chair. For those over the age of 12, it is generally safe for them to use massage chairs as long as the instructions are followed. It’s important to adjust the massage strength and speed based on age and body type so that an individual is not subjected to too much pressure.

Can you get the same comfort from a massage chair as from a massage therapist? 

A massage chair cannot replicate an human massage therapist as it does not possess the same mobility. This is because a massage chair is limited in its range of motion, so it cannot access some of the areas that require deeper attention from a human masseuse (massage therapist).

However, massage chairs can offer comfort in certain ways that a human masseuse may not be able to provide. For example, a massage chair can provide a more consistent and longer-duration massage than what a human masseuse may be able to offer. It also offers an easy way to enjoy a massage in the comfort of your own home without having to book an appointment or find time to travel.
