Massage Techniques: Modern massage chair manufacturers have included
diﬀerent massage techniques in diﬀerent massage chairs. Even, some chairs
can simultaneously combine mul ple massage techniques to provide more
intense massages. These chairs are capable of providing massages like Swedish
Massage, Sports Massage, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Reﬂexology, Tapping Massage,
Rolling Massage, Kneading Massage, Vibra on Massage, Air Compressor
Massage, Zero Gravity, etc. So before buying this chair, you have to decide at
ﬁrst- what type of massage technique you want to have from your chair and
make sure that the chair is capable of providing your desired massage.
Massage Programs: Some top quality massage chair manufacturers are
oﬀering fully automated chairs. These types of chairs come with a mer which
allows the users to get massaged simply by pressing a bu on. Such chairs also
include scanning mechanism, which automa cally scans an individual’s full
body to detect s ﬀ and stress areas and customize programs to deliver
appropriate pressure or massage to the stressed areas.
Massage Intensity: The intensity or strength of delivering massage vary from
brand to brand. Modern chair manufacturers some mes provide the
opportunity to customize the strength of massage whenever needed. Actually
the intensity or strength of massage largely depends on the torque power
generated by the motor installed in the chair. That means the more motors, the
more torque powers, and the more massage strength will be. So you must
make sure that the motors installed in the chair are capable of genera ng
enough torque power to provide your desired massage intensity.
Massage Chair Size: Although most of the massage chairs are usually designed
to ﬁt all body types and sizes, but if you are taller, thinner, shorter or wider
than average, you need to make sure that the chair ﬁts with your body before
buying that chair.
Heated Massage: Latest chairs come with the feature of heated massage seat.
This heat massage greatly helps to increase blood circula on throughout the
body and also eases pains and aches. So, if your desired massage chair comes
with this op ons, it would be a plus point.
Massage Stroke: The length of massage stroke is really an important
considera on in case of buying a perfect massage chair. A midrange chair
usually has massage stroke of around 20 inches which can’t cover everything
between neck and low back. Only high-end chairs can provide complete
massage covering everything between low back and neck which usually have
massage stroke of around 30 inches. Now it’s up to you that what range of
massage stroke you want to get from your chair.
Massage Airbags: Massage airbags can provide great relief from tension and
s ﬀness by delivering pressurized air to small pouches, installed in the chair
seat, the chair backrest, and the o oman and some mes in the armrest or
headrest. If you feel that massage airbags are right for you, then make sure
that your desired chair include this airbag op on.
Chair Upholstery: Modern chairs are usually covered with genuine leather or
synthe c leather. Although genuine leather is preferred for all other home
appliances, but when it is related to massage, synthe c leather is highly
recommended. It’s because this synthe c leather has been par cularly
engineered to use for massage chairs which can handle the signiﬁcant amount
of heat generated from all the moving parts and hea ng pads of chair. So if you
want to ensure the longevity of your massage chair in long run, obviously you
should choose synthe c leather covering the chair.
Always carefully consider the warranty op ons that the massage chair
manufacturers are oﬀering with their chairs. Warranty that is oﬀered with the
chair is a good indicator of that chair’s quality. Because if the manufacturers
don’t have any belief or reliance on the quality of their chairs, they will
obviously not oﬀer any warranty or money back guarantee with their products.
That’s the reason why some of the best chairs come with coverage of up to 3
years. So if you want to ensure the longevity of your massage chair, try to have
chair with extended coverage.
