Types of massage chairs

All the different types of massage chairs have a few features in common. They all come with a seat, an ergonomically designed back rest, and a hand rest. You get ones with different adjustment options and in varying price ranges.

There are two main types of massage chairs available in the market today:

  • Traditional massage chairs
  • Robotic massage chairs

Traditional massage chairs are those in which you can help your body completely relax. These are just simple chairs, designed in such a way as to help relax various parts of the body. These can also be used as chairs on which massages can be given, especially in situations where using a massage bed is not possible. These are great relaxing options for those in both physically as well as psychologically high stress jobs.

Robotic massage chairs on the other hand are massage chairs that have a motor that will actually massage your body with air pressure or even specialized plates to help massage effectively. Depending on the type of chair, you can have a massage by simply sitting down in one of these chairs.

Usually, these chairs will massage your neck, back, and feet.

There is a wide variety of massage chairs that you can choose from, even ones with rollers that will move up and down your back to help relieve back pain. Below are some of the guidelines for choosing a massage chair that is right for you.

Guidelines for choosing right massage chair

  • Depending on your problem area, get a chair that is designed to tackle pain in that area of the body, or something more generic if you do not have a lot of body pain.
  • Go with massage chairs that have larger rollers as they will help massage more effectively.
  • If you are someone who really needs a massage chair because of ailments, it may be a good idea to invest in one that comes with a scanner that will tell you which parts of the body needs the therapy.
  • If you have a lot of back problems, a zero gravity massage chair may be a good option as they will help relieve the pressure on the spine.
  • Finally, go with a massage chair that has a good quality motor and a good warranty structure. Opt for an ergonomically well-designed chair to suit your particular needs.
