Sierra Comfort Portable Massage Table BLACK FRIDAY CYBER MONDAY SALES 2021

Sierra Comfort All Inclusive

When it comes to the best cheap massage table in the portable category, the Sierra Comfort All Inclusive Portable Massage Table is a clear winner.

It is the best massage table for the money because it comes with multiple accessories (which is not expected at all, given its already low price point to start with) so it actually helps save costs from making additional investments.

Features Highlight 

Yes, aside from the foldable massage table, it also comes with multiple massage essentials:

  • 1 lightweight adjustable face cradle
  • 1 face cushion
  • 1 fitted bottom sheet set (100% cotton)
  • 1 nylon carry bag with shoulder strap and forward swinging arm rest
  • Disposable face cushion sheets for the face cradle 

Usually, the quality of freebies are rather questionable but not for this one.

The sheet set is made of 100% cotton so it is very soft and comfortable and the face cradle is fully adjustable to allow for comfortable positioning of the head.

The above can easily cost you a few extra hundred dollars, so to be able to have them included is truly a bargain because you can start massaging your clients straight away without making any further investments.

You can also use it immediately straight out from the box as no assembly is required.

Sierra accessories storge

When not in use, you can actually store all the accessories underneath the table itself (as pictured) before folding it up into a massage table case and putting it into the carry bag.

Even then, the total weight is just 35.3 pounds, which explains why it is regarded as the best lightweight portable massage table by so many industry experts. 

Back on the table itself, the frame is constructed of high quality beech hardwood and that is probably the very first thing you’ll notice of the Sierra Comfort portable massage table - it has a really strong and sturdy build. 

On top of that, it has a threaded support bar and multiple steel support cables to increase stability and durability so it can support up to 450lbs working weight without any problem.

The table height is adjustable via its legs through a 9-point adjustment, ranging from 25.5” to 33.5”.

The legs themselves are non-slippery so even if you set it up on a shiny/smooth floor surface, you wouldn’t need to worry about the table sliding around (which can be rather dangerous) when you apply pressure on your clients. 

As a folding massage table, it uses three hinges to fold and unfold.

We have to say we’re quite impressed with their hinge instalment - they work smoothly without making any creaking sound. 

The upholstery is the standard oil and water resistant PU leather, which really, is for practical purpose as it will withstand anything (massage oil and the kind) you use during a massage session.

That said, it doesn’t mean the Sierra Comfort All Inclusive is not without downside. The massage table pad it comes with is 2 inches thick, and although this is pretty much the standard thickness of most foam deck, there are many that go above and beyond to produce 2.5” or more.

By no means this is a deal breaker - it is still a high density foam and you’ll still get a comfortable massage experience - it’s just that there is room for improvement in this aspect. 

Another thing, and this is pretty much unavoidable when it comes to a wooden massage table is that a creaking or squeaking sound of some sort may be heard if the user is on the heavier side or too much force/pressure is applied.

If this is something that will really bother you, then we’ll recommend buying an aluminium lightweight portable massage table instead.

Its All Inclusive Portable Massage Table is their best one yet. If you’re on a tight budget, you will love this one, especially with the massive discount offered this BLACK FRIDAY and CYBER MONDAY.

Handheld Massager BLACK FRIDAY CYBER MONDAY 2021

Handheld Massager Black Friday

Handheld massager is getting more and more popular these days. Be it a machine gun or those elongated handheld percussion massagers, they are now having a GRAND MEGA SALE this BLACK FRIDAY & CYBER MONDAY!

Get them before they run out of stock - the following best massage guns sell out fast!


Handheld Massager Reviews

A. Percussion Massage Gun

OPOVE M3 Pro Massage Gun

If we are to say the most popular massage gun in the market, it has to be the OPOVE M3 Pro Massage Gun.

This, is the best handheld massager in the massage gun category in our opinion.

It is a lot of things, but the most standout feature has to be its anti-drop proprietary.

You don't see this anywhere else, but it has a shell made up of Nylon 66 and glass fiber that enables it to keep well even if dropped from 6.6ft (2m) high. To date, this may be the very one massage gun with such durability. 

Also one of the quietest and lightest, it has a long battery life that last up to 3 hours of use per full charge. Continue reading here…

Bobbito Massage Gun

Coming close in second is the Bobbito Massage Gun which definitely is a kind of its own. 

Bearing a whopping 20 adjustable speed level, this upgraded version now drills into the muscles with 30% more intensity than the original. 

You won't see this anywhere else, really.

It still clocks in a maximum 3200 percussions per minute like the old version, but each individual percussion is now 30% more powerful to really get into the sore muscles. Adding to this is a stroke length of 13mm, 3mm more than the standard.

There are 6 interchangeable massage heads and a built-in pressure sensor technology is incorporated to give visual feedback throughout your massage process. 

Comes with a LED touch screen and LCD battery indicator, continue reading here...

Naipo Massage Gun

The Naipo Massage Gun is another highly rated best electric massager, with a close to perfect rating score. 

The very first thing we notice is that it has a noticeably slimmer handle when compared with the others.

At 33mm, the ergonomic button and handle design is so easy to manoeuvre, you can  use it with just one hand. 

What we like in particular though, is that it gives 5-7 hours of usage per full charge. That is almost double that of the OPOVE M3 Pro, and that is pretty impressive.

It does have a slightly smaller intensity range compared to the former, but you'll still get 2,000 - 3,200 RMP. This range is spread across 5 intensity levels to better cater to various needs, continue reading here...

TaoTronics Massage Gun

Speaking of long battery life, the TaoTronics Professional Deep Tissue Muscle Massager Gun is another top candidate. 

With an ultra-long work time of up to 10 hours, this is the best electric massager to those who don't quite like to keep recharging their massage gun.

Professional trainers, that's you. 

It also has one of the biggest intensity range. The usual massage gun starts from 1800 or 2000 rpm, but this one here produces 1400 - 3200 strokes per minute to reach tissues as deep as 12mm. 

There are 10 adjustable speeds with 6 specialty massage heads to interchange for different areas. Like the Bobbito, it also has a LCD display to show you your settings. Find out more here...

LifePro Pulse Fx Percussion Massage Gun

The LifePro Pulse Fx Rotating Percussion Massage Gun is definitely on the higher end of the price spectrum. 

Nevertheless, this does not affect its popularity and bestselling status in any way.

In fact, it is the No.1 choice of many professional athletes, body builders and dense body mass enthusiasts to date.  

No other reason - it is the most intense percussion gun in the market. When most percussive massage guns come with the standard 10mm amplitude, this one here is built with a 16mm intense penetrating amplitude. 

On top of that, it has a curved, easy-grip handle that allows further increase of your leverage. This way, you can really reach those areas deep and hard. 

Its ability to rotate is what sets it apart from the rest though. Read more here...

Hyperice Hypervolt Massage Gun

There probably isn't any other handheld massager that is as widely publicised as the Hypervolt Handheld Percussion Massage Gun here. 

A constant bestseller of Hyperice, this handheld percussion massager has repeatedly been featured in publications like the GQ, CNET, Runner's World, Self, Men's Health and the likes.

Deemed the 'top tech in health and wellness', its most-raved feature is of course the brand's patented Quiet Glide Technology. 

Developed in collaboration with aerospace engineers, it delivers the perfect combination of power, performance and variability - all the while being super quiet. 

Ideal especially for the legs, arms, torso, back and neck, there are 3 speed settings to deliver up to 3,200 percussions per minute. 

If it is trusted by so many elite athletes in every professional sports league, it should be good enough to achieve your desirable results.  

AccuMed Massage Gun

If you're looking for the quietest handheld massager, the AccuMed Massage Gun will be right up your alley. 

Equipped with an industry-leading 26V high-torque brushless motor, it is so quiet - it is almost silent. 

Even the OPOVE M3 Pro, our top favourite, is at 24V only.

Yet, it has this quintessential premium build that is so heavy and powerful, it can compete with the higher end models. BUT without the associating price.  

Amongst other things, the first thing you'd most probably notice is that the AccuMed has an angled handle. This 15-degree slant is the most ergonomic in terms of grip, and we don't really see this often in other percussion massage guns.

There are 4 interchangeable massage heads and it goes up to 3200 percussions per minute. In one full charge, it can last 4 hours. 

At a price point like this, you will not find a higher build quality, more heavy duty or quieter percussion massage gun. Highly recommend!

Legiral Massage Gun

One can say that the Legiral Handheld Percussion Massager is a combination of some of the best features mentioned in our handheld massager reviews.

Bobbito's 20-speed level and LED control, LifePro's 16mm penetrating amplitude and TaoTronics' wide rpm range - these are just among the few bestselling features of the Legiral. 

If we are to recommend the best buy massager, this will certainly make it in the list. Why then, it didn't rank higher in this list, you may wonder?

It is worthy to note that this is a very competitive ranking system. The difference between one and the other is at the very slightest, and we may have placed our emphasis on aspects that may be different to some.

In this case, it is the battery life that bumps the Legiral downwards. It can work up to 6 hours, but that is on low speed. And it takes 1.5 to 2 hours to be fully charged. Nothing overly major, some may not even regard it as a weakness. As we said, it's just an emphasis we place.

You will want to know that this is one of the cheaper (price-wise) percussion gun massager available, hence why we say it is the best buy handheld massager ever.

Blackleaf Portable Handheld Massager

To those who do not want to spend too much on a handheld massager, the Blackleaf Portable Handheld Massager will be perfect for you.

This little device here is under $100, making it the most affordable option out of all the massage guns included in our review here. 

Without compromising on quality at all. 

Equipped with 5 adjustable speeds delivering 1600 to 3200 percussions per minute, you get 4 interchangeable heads targeting different areas at a quiet 35dB - 50dB working noise. 

You do have to expect longer charging time with this one though. It takes about 3 hours to get one full charge but it will last you 3 - 5 hours which is about the standard working time as other models. 

We really like the Blackleaf for offering a 30-day unconditional money-back guarantee option, as well as the 24/7 customer service that is available. On top of that, it comes with 12 months of warranty. 

AMICCI Massage Gun

*UPDATED* Newly improved, the AMICCI Massage Gun is at a league of its own with 9 adjustable speed levels and 8 interchangeable massage heads.

It also has the ability to measure a user's heart rate and body, as well as count the calories consumed based on massage time and frequency on top of that. 

All these, together with speed and time settings, are controllable via a LCD intelligent touch screen that also displays its battery level. 

Speaking of which, the newly improved version has seen an upgrade in its battery life. The new 5200mAH high-energy lithium battery now has a life span of 8-10 hours per full charge. This is equivalent to that of TaoTronics’, which is no doubt a bestselling feature of the latter.

We really like this updated version, especially the ultra strong heat dissipation design that prevents overheating. Best of all, the AMICCI leans towards the lower end of the price spectrum so it is an option affordable to the majority public.


B. Handheld Percussion Massager

The elongated handle simply means you can achieve self myofascial release without relying on others, making it the best home massager to own.

Mighty Bliss Cordless Handheld Massager

Our No. 1 Choice has to be this Cordless Electric Handheld Percussion Massager from Mighty BlissTM.

From its trademarked brand name, you could probably already tell that this is no ordinary electric massager.

Equipped with what's the most powerful percussion motor the market has to offer, it provides 3700 percussion per minute. 

Cordless and lightweight, it comes with 6 different massage heads. It also has a speedy record time of recharging in 60 minutes, which will last the device up to 120 minutes of usage. 

In fact, the Lithium-ion rechargeable battery it uses is the same as that used in electric cars. The Mighty BlissTM also comes with the very rare LIFETIME WARRANTY, with hassle-free lifetime replacement offered. Read more here... 

TYMO White Whale Handheld Massager

The TYMO White Whale Handheld Massager is another close second.

In fact, many think it is the best handheld massager because - (1) price, and (2) heat element.

Yes, heat option is offered at 110°F, the optimum temperature for human body heat therapy. 

If like some, heat is an indispensable element to you, then the TYMO White Whale is perfect for you. 

It may not be the cheapest in terms of price but if we are to compare it with the Mighty BlissTM,, we are looking at almost half the price. This no doubt increases its affordability.

It is also one of the very few cordless option of this type, and we like how it uses silicone instead of cheap plastic for its 5 massage heads. Find out its other specs and features here…

RENPHO Handheld Massager

The RENPHO Rechargeable Handheld Deep Massager is a top favourite among our editors here. 

First of all, because of its lightweight. 1.8lbs only, it makes for the best portable massager with its cordless design. 

Secondly, it has a huge battery life. You get a total 140 minutes in one full charge. That is probably the longest working power any unit has amongst all the handheld massager reviews here. 

We especially like how it comes with a charging stand that can store the 5 massage heads that come with it. 

Like the above models, it provides a maximum of 3600 pulses per minute and there are 4 percussion modes to choose from. 

At a price under $50, this is definitely one top contender in the best buy massager category.

Snailax Cordless Handheld Massager

The Snailax Cordless Handheld Massager is another handheld massager that comes with heat.

It is a cheaper option compared to the TYMO, however, there are a few things you'll have to forego if you choose to go with this one. 

The first being a smaller working capacity.

At full charge, the Snailax lasts 80 minutes. That is an hour shorter than the TYMO. You get two lesser speed levels as well, but there are the same 3 modes to choose from nevertheless.

It comes with 4 massage heads, 1 lesser than TYMO and there are differences in their configuration. If you have a particular preference for shiatsu, you will like this better as  it has the deep shiatsu massage head many prefer. 

That's basically the difference between the two. We prefer TYMO because it offers more versatility with its variations, but the Snailax definitely has its own appeal. 

It being a cordless handheld massager being one and secondly, it has an attractive price point that many cannot resist. This is why it continues to be a bestseller in the handheld shiatsu massager category.

VIKTOR JURGEN Handheld Back Massager

The VIKTOR JURGEN Handheld Back Massager is an Amazon's Choice, meaning it is a highly rated and well-priced product that Amazon will recommend. 

The very first thing you'll notice with the VJ is that it is a dual head handheld percussion massager. What this entails, is a bigger massage coverage area.

This is no doubt the biggest selling point of the VJ . The effect is more apparent on the back as it is the biggest area, which is why it is also regarded as one of the best back massager in the market.

There are 3 massage nodes, all come in pairs. Although not as many as the rest,  it covers pretty extensively the major massage techniques.  There are Acupuncture, Shiatsu and Swedish – all up to 3350 percussions per minute.

The VICTOR JURGEN is not without any shortfall though - it has a handle that is comparatively shorter than many other competitors’. Also, it is not cordless. The cord length is 71 inch, which is pretty standard but not exactly extra long.

Having said that, it has an unbeatable price. Believe it or not, it costs under $30. With features that it offers, this is pretty rare, if not unheard of. 

Homedics Percussion Action Massager

Another Amazon's Choice, the Homedics Percussion Action Massager is too, a dual-headed handheld percussion massager. However, that's where the similarity stops. 

In fact, the Homedics is not quite like your usual handheld massagers. Instead of the usual multiple massage head configurations, its only comes in one smooth, rounded design that are differentiated via their firmness - gentle or firm. 

Nevertheless, it does provide a third heat option which the VJ is lack of. This is when you use the device without any massage head to allow the exposed red heat nodes penetrate better across the massage area. 

The two pivoting massage heads deliver percussion pulses of up to 3100 times per minute, and there are 4 speed options to choose from. 

The Homedics has a much longer handle compared to the VJ. At 17 inches, it also has this ergonomic grip design that makes it easy to reach the tricky areas, such as the lower and upper back. 

Some like the usual massage heads that the VP is equipped with, while other may prioritise heat more in which the Homedics may then be the preferred selection. 

VIVREAL Handheld Back Massager

VIVREAL has more than 20 years of experience specializing in the body massager industry. 

Its Handheld Back Massager, particularly, has made its name in the industry being the choice of many chiropractors, physical therapists and sports trainers to spur recovery. 

This one here comes with 6 nodes, 6 massage modes and 6 speed options. 

Next to Mighty BlissTM, this is probably the other handheld shiatsu massager that offers that many massage modes.

However, it doesn’t share the same battery usage life. Recording 100 mins on full charge, it is still better than many though and there is a smart battery status display that shows you when it needs to be recharged.  

Likewise, it is a cordless handheld massager so it gives maximum convenience and portability. Out of all the cordless options we have so far, this is probably the best buy massager because at about the same price, it offers the most massage heads, speed and modes.

One thing worthy to note is that it generally has a longer service life compared to the rest, thanks to the use of pure copper motor. See what we mean by the VIVREAL being the best buy handheld massager?

Hangsun Handheld Neck Back Massager

We thought you may like to have another option when it comes to dual-headed percussion massagers. 

The Hangsun Handheld Neck Back Massager is the third and last handheld massager massager featured in this review that comes with the double head option. 

This is actually like a combination of the VP and Homedics. It adopts the former's traditional massage head configurations while taking after the latter's long cord length (98 inches). 

After all, cord length has always been VP's weakness. Likewise, Homedics' attachments are admittedly, not one for everyone. So the Hangsun is like the best of both worlds.

It is the most expensive option out of the three though, although still relatively cheap at under $50. And it is slightly heavier. Given handheld massager is all about ease and convenience, weight certainly does have its weigh here (pun intended) which is why we rate it lower than the other two.

Of course, it depends on what you like at the end of the day. We think this is a very good option if you like both the VP and Homedics as aforementioned, it marries some of the best features of the two in one. 

MOICO Handheld Back Massager

Nevertheless, when it comes to the cheapest (price-wise) handheld percussion massager, it has to be the MOICO Handheld Back Massager

Even cheaper than the VP which is widely known for its affordability, this is, dare we say, the lowest-priced single headed handheld massager that comes in such quality. 

Not just that, but it is also the percussion massager with the most number of modes and speed levels, offering a total of 12 vibration patterns and 10 variable speeds.

Comes with 6 massage heads, it generates up to 3200 pulses per minute and it can last 120 minutes in one full charge. Best of all? It weighs less than 2 pounds – 1.8lbs to be exact and it is cordless.

All these with a sleek and slim design AND at such an unbeatable price, you can see why the MOICO has quickly became the best handheld massager for many despite its fairly new release.

Wahl Deep Tissue Percussion Massager

Last but not least, we have the Wahl Deep Tissue Percussion Massager

Just because it places last does not mean it is the most inferior - it probably is because we have different emphasis and priorities. 

An Amazon's Choice, it is the best muscle massager to many. 

The Wahl definitely stood out with its 9-ft long (108 inches) cord length. Given it is not cordless, this is a very important aspect to ensure its ease of use. 

While it gives an average of 3350 pulses per minute, it can reach as high as 400ppm (2000ppm being its lowest). So you can say that this is the most versatile handheld massager. 

It comes with 4 massage heads that adopt a spiral-lock mechanism. Arguably, this provides a more secure attachment. The 4 nodes include a deep muscle attachment, four-finger flex attachment, accupoint attachment and raised bump attachment. 

The Wahl adopts a variable speed dial for gentle to intense massage settings. If you suffer from conditions like plantar fasciitis or tendinitis, you may want to give this a try as it is well-known to be effective in reducing pain and fatigue associated from joints, sports injuries, arthritis and muscle knots.


Wrapping Up

If you are to ask us what is that one massage device that everyone should have, it will definitely be the handheld percussion massager

Be it the massage gun or the elongated type, we honestly think it is one of the best invention ever. It makes for such a great home tool for relieving pains - it is not limited to any certain body part. (If you have trouble selecting between the two, why not check out this guide of ours here?)

handheld massager for whole body

Use it both pre-workout to warm up the muscles and increase range of motions, or post-workout to decrease tightness and soreness. After a long day's work on the feet, or for the shoulder that works in front of the computer for long hours.

Best of all, it does not cost an arm or a leg. Definitely an indispensable item that everyone needs.

Top 5 Overall Best Massage Chairs Reviews

Human Touch Novo XT2

The Human Touch Novo XT Massage Chair is the bestselling model in the ever-popular Novo series and really, there isn't much we can fault about it. 

The closest we can find in terms of the one world’s best massage chair, it scores the perfect balance between convenient using for a casual hobbyist, yet with sufficient therapeutic features for those suffering from chronic pain.

It is this flexibility of being the best for both worlds that takes the top spot of being the ‘best massage chair in the world’ for us.

With one of the biggest height range (from 5’ to 6’9”), it is able to fit a good lot of people. If you’ve been doing your research, you will know that there aren’t many massage chair for tall person (beyond 6’5”).

Even if they do, they won’t be as comfortable or fitting for smaller-sized people so it’s always one or the other. Not with the Novo XT here. 

Core Features 

L Track 

The Novo XT2 has a L track line that is about 50”, which is one of the longest the industry has to offer.

This remarkable L-Track Unibody design covers up to 60% more of the back, extending high performance coverage from your neck and shoulders all the way down to your glutes.

We have a detailed explanation regarding the difference between the massage tracks available over here. You may have a read if you'd like to find out more about the mechanisms in detail. 

3D Quad Rollers 

A long track will mean nothing if the rollers aren’t performing up to par. We’re pleased to find that the Novo XT has upgraded from its previous dual rollers to now quad rollers with 3D touch. 

What this 3D technology means is that the rollers are able to move away from the massage track (up to 3”) to give a deeper massage in general.

Zero Gravity Position

One has to have the zero gravity function to be able to constitute as the worlds best massage chair. 

Zero gravity seating is where your feet are elevated slightly higher than your heart level to give you an instantaneous weightlessness (read more about the benefits of Zero G here) besides giving a deeper massage because gravity pulls your body down so that the bulk of your body is pressing against the rollers.

Human Touch Zero G

Not only can you lay down in this doctor-recommended neutral-posture position, the chair's expansive bend and stretch functionality also provides unprecedented leg and spine relief. 

This helps increases blood flow to the vertebrae and discs and rejuvenating the lower back, allowing you to recover with greater efficiency.

Space-Saving Technology

So, there is no doubt that this is a big chair. 

While you do have to allocate considerable space for it, it actually does not take up as much floor space as you'd think - thanks to its space-saving design!

Using an innovative technology whereby the chair shifts forward as it reclines, all you need is just 2 inches from the wall and that's it! If you know your massage recliner chairs well, you will know just how superior this is. Definitely a great improvement from the previous 9 inches, we have to say!

Massage Options

Human Touch goes down the path of high automation, providing a ground-breaking 35 automatic pre-programmed massage routines in the Novo XT

We think this is the right move, because many users prefer the push-button option as compared to having to tweak the massage options themselves. Granted, you can still control it manually, with a ‘zone massage’ function for you to interrupt any massage program running and focus the rollers to where it hurts the most.

Massage techniques wise, it offers some of the best:

  • Shiatsu 
  • Swedish 
  • Sports
  • Kneading 
  • Kneading and tapping 
  • Tapping  
  • Percussion
  • Thai
  • Audio sync

In particular, the presence of Shiatsu, Swedish and Thai make this one invincible massage chair. We don't think you'd be able to find massage chairs at any price that offer three advanced massage techniques as such. 

On top of that, you get to select the intensity and speed the rollers operate at 3 different levels.

Air Massage

A good massage chair will not be limited with just roller-based massages - it comes equipped with air massage technology too. 

The Novo XT doesn’t have a lot of airbags but that does not matter - what it has it implements well.

Its Second Generation airbags are placed strategically across the arm, calf, foot, hand, hip, thigh, upper arm and shoulder. You can choose to activate the airbags specifically, and there are three intensity levels for you to adjust.

Therapeutic Features 

Human Touch controller
Dual lumbar heat 

While heat is a pretty common element in massage chairs nowadays, the Novo XT falls rather short in this department for us.

It has two heat pads installed at the lumbar region and while this may be sufficient a few years back, it is quite underwhelming nowadays.  

Foot and calf massage

Delivered via a combination of airbags in the footwells and dual rollers at the bottom of each leg port. Both speed and intensity of the rollers can be adjusted independently which is something we really like.

Sadly though, and this is one of the reasons why the Novo XT2 fails to get a perfect score from us, is that it doesn’t have heat at the footwells. 

Another deducting point is that it does not offer automated body scanning. Truthfully, we’re a little surprised at the lack of it because many high end massage chairs have this function, and the Novo XT2 is certainly one high end machine.

Instead, it has 9 preset modes which (1) you choose the one you think suits best, (2) you tweak and fine tune the position of the rollers manually. Not the most impressive and well implemented, we have to say.

Other Bonus Features

  • Mp3 support
  • Bluetooth compatible  
  • USB port 
  • 8 pre-programmed soundtrack
  • Conclusion

    As you can see, there are many things that we like about the Human Touch Novo XT Massage Chair.

    The shortcoming is probably its price only, as well as a few minor issues such as no heat in footwells and no auto body scanning. 

    While we think it strikes a good balance between casual and therapeutic fusion, we have to say it skews slightly more towards a hobbyist’s use. If you're looking for something with higher therapeutic use, perhaps the Luraco i7 below is a slightly better choice.  

    Luraco i7

    An exceptional medical massage chair, the Luraco iRobotics 7 Plus Medical Massage Chair took the top spot
    in our best full body massage chair review.

    So really, it is no surprise that it made it to our Top 10 list here.

    About the Luraco i7

    Luraco is an American brand with a massage chair line that is fully researched, developed and assembled in the USA.

    The iRobotics 7 Plus is its latest product, a medical massage chair primarily designed to be a therapeutic model yet simple enough for casual users to get the most out of it.

    Core Features

    S-track Frame 

    It has a comparatively shorter massage track (the S-track) that only goes to the small of your back, and this is probably the only thing we’d ‘fault’ the Luraco i7.

    Nonetheless, it retains quad rollers so the massage quality is every bit as good. Although a hybrid L/S track will be better, considering many other chairs are still using the S track frame, we can’t really count this as a negative. 

    Zero Gravity Seating 

    The NASA-inspired technology is also incorporated where your body is reclined to where your knees is elevated slightly above your heart.

    This allows a deeper massage because gravity pulls your body down so that the bulk of your body is pressing against the rollers. It would be better if there are multiple positions though, as this one here only has 1.

    User Memory Settings 

    It is a wonder why so little chairs offer memory nowadays, given how cheap memory is these days.

    Not with the Luraco i7. There are an impressive 5 memory slots for you to work with - you can either save 5 different massage varieties for yourself, or leave the extra slots for other family members.

    Massage Options  

    In terms of massage options, you get: 

    • Rolling
    • Kneading
    • Tapping
    • Kneading and Tapping
    • Shiatsu
    • Swedish

    Allow us to explain a bit further here because the company has put a lot of emphasis on this feature.

    You see, it is fairly normal nowadays for chairs to let you selectively activate airbags in Air Massage mode, but what makes the Luraco i7 stands out is that it also allows you to do the same thing with their roller-based massage.

    Amazing right? This means you can truly customize your massage the way you want it to be. There are a whopping 80 second-generation airbags (which is an incredible number) for you to direct at 6 areas predominantly - neck, upper back, lower back, arms, calves and feet, and 5 intensity levels to choose from. 

    When need be, you can pause your massage and resume after without having to start all the way from the beginning again. On top of that, there are 9 pre-programmed massage options with manual settings available. 

    Therapeutic Features 

    For chronic pain users, this may be what’s most relevant and of interest to you. 

    Extensive Heat 

    The Luraco i7 has heat pads installed in the lumbar, seat as well as both footwells.

    In fact, it has one of industry's best heated foot massager because its intensity can be adjusted into 3 levels. This makes it an ideal best foot massager for plantar fasciitis sufferers.

    The presence of heat at these areas enhance relaxation and relief of your body as a result of increased blood circulation.

    Also, it adds so much more to the massage experience especially during winter.

    Body Stretching 

    This is a program where it twists and stretches your body like no other to really loosen up all those muscles. You feel an instantaneous relief of pressure from compressed discs which is what causes 90% of chronic back pain. If this is you, this may be your most-loved feature.

    The stretch can be a little aggressive but compared with other chairs with similar program, this one here probably does best.

    Foot and Calf Massager
    Luraco airbag

    The i7 has one of the best rated foot massager in the industry with its 3-layered advanced foot massage with double rollers and calf massager.

    It is worthy to note that the rollers are layered 3-folds so the pressure wouldn’t be too much on your feet, as some others may to the extent of causing pain.

    The foot ottoman is also extendable to accommodate users up to 6’5”, making it a massage chair for tall  person (who often have limited choices).

    Integrated Blood Pressure and Heart Rate Monitor 

    Now this is one of a kind in massage chairs.

    A patent-pending feature, it is especially useful to keep track of your body's condition during a massage session so that you know where your limit is. Regardless, you shouldn’t spend too long massaging your body with 30-minute being the maximum usually. 

    Luraco controller

    All the above, controllable by a patent pending technically up-to-date, fast-responding, heavy-duty and smart handheld touch-screen control that utilizes the same platform you will find in smartphones.

    Given the many features, it is surprisingly a user-friendly model.

    Other Bonus Features 

    • Seven human-voice command system (English, Vietnamese, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, and Korean)
    • Quality and powerful Bluetooth speakers 
    • Pause and resume buttons
    • Adjustable massage timer 

    Conclusion

    There isn’t much to fault the Luraco iRobotics 7 Plus. The 5-year limited warranty far extends standard industry’s practice, and this goes to show how confident the company is in its quality and workmanship to extend this offer.

    If we’d to nitpick, it will be the sole Zero G position which we would like to see an upgrade in future models. 

    At the end of the day, it is one of the best high end massage chair, with top end features that we will highly recommend. WITH THE HUGE SAVINGS OFFER THIS BLACK FRIDAY AND CYBER MONDAY, THERE REALLY IS NO OTHER BETTER TIME TO GET THIS MODEL THAN NOW.

    Kahuna SM9000

    You know we love our Kahuna chairs (see our reviews about the Kahuna LM6800 here and here, as well as the SM7300 here).

    But do you know its best chair is the SM-9000, the Air Float 3D+? This one here has got to have one of the best massage chair ratings in the market.

    Core Features 

    S/L Hybrid Track  

    Like the Human Touch Novo XT2, it has a S/L hybrid track which massage from the neck until the glutes and back of your thighs. This is probably the widest coverage one can get from a massage chair at one time. 

    Space-saving Technology 

    Those familiar with Kahuna chairs will know this already.

    Until the emergence of Human Touch’s Novo XT2, it boasts the least wall space required (3 inches only from the wall) for a massage recliner chair.

    Nevertheless, at 3 inch, it is still a great feat to have because well, a massage chair like this is a burly piece of furniture.

    The SM9000 has one additional feature that its peers don’t though, that is, it has an ameliorated forward sliding mechanism. This allows a more quiet transition than the old sliding mechanism, so that's another plus point to like.   

    Minimal Noise 

    This newest Air Float technology provides the smoothest and most optimized transitions with minimal noise. The SM9000 has a latest engineered motor that allows for the most silent massages for maximum state of relaxation.

    Massage Options

    Kahuna SM9000 massage options

    You get: 

    • Kneading
    • Tapping
    • Kneading and Tapping
    • Knocking
    • Finger kneading
    Air Massage

    Let’s look into its air massage features now shall we?

    The SM9000 is designed for a full body air massage that dynamically massages most of the surfaces with minimal number of airbags.

    That said, it does install additional airbags on the back and hip areas to enhance its sensational spinal pressure relief to its user.

    Other areas with airbags attached are:

    kahuna signature progrms
    • Shoulders
    • Arm
    • Calf
    • Leg
    • Feet

    These airbags loosen tense muscles by inflating and deflating with gentle pressure to stretch the body while rhythmically squeezing to release tensed muscles and improve circulation.

    Therapeutic Features 

    6 Infrared Heating Rollers

    If we’re to point out one stand out feature of the SM9000, it will be its newly invented infrared heating rollers.

    This means you get heat coverage where the rollers hit, and with a total of 6 of them, it  basically means the whole of your back and thighs where the rollers travel. Thanks to this, it gives one of the best therapeutic massages. 

    The heating rollers provide soothing relief sensation from back pain and it helps ease tensions and reduces stress by transmitting the heat from the rollers through the muscle tissues, allowing the blood vessels to open up, and letting the tensed muscles to relax much quicker.

    It is also great for relieving arthritis pain and sore muscles because it promotes better blood circulation. 

    For chronic pain sufferers, this may sound like heaven to you. It is.

    3D Foot Massage
    Kahuna feet massage

    It is also one of the best foot calf massager in that department.

    Implementing 3 different techniques - scraping, rolling and kneading - all at the same time using fully wrapped airbags, it helps strengthens your foot and ankle area to minimize injuries.

    The 3D wraparound squeeze air massage it applies onto the calf is truly a relaxing sensation, taking the tiredness of the whole day away. It is one of the features that we enjoy the most of the SM9000.

    Other Bonus Features

    • Built-in premium Bluetooth speakers
    • 7 Kahuna signature programs
    • 1-2 inches wider seat and shoulder

    Conclusion

    The Kahuna SM9000 Air Float 3D+ SM9000 Massage Chair is no doubt the top end of its line, but it is sufficient on itself to stand its ground on par with some of the best massage chairs in the market. 

    That said, it does come with a hefty price tag which means it is not for everyone. And considering there is a similar high-performing alternative (our all-time favourite), we can understand why it is not a bestseller as it should be.

    Ootori SL Massage Chair

    Another common way of determining the best massage chair is by looking at the number of options and massage combinations available, and weighing that against the price. 

    If this is your measuring standard, the Ootori SL Massage Chair will be right up your alley. 

    Core Features

    S/L Track System

    Not just a hybrid S/L track system, these double tracks boast a total length of approximately 52 inches so the rollers can walk along the human body curve from the neck down to under the seat area to massage your glutes and thighs.  

    Ootori SL
    Smart Body Scan
    Ootori body scan

    The computerized Smart Body Scan function will scan your body automatically to detect your body and will self-adjust to allow the chair provide a custom massage according to your body shape and size. 

    Its leg rest can be extended up to 7 inches/18cm so it is able to fit a variety of body sizes up to 6.3 inches/440lbs. 

    Space Saving Technology
    Ootori space saving

    Like the Human Touch Novo XT, it utilizes a sliding forward mechanism when reclining so it doesn’t take up much floor space, only 2.5” from the wall.

    Massage Options

    Designed with 3D massage hands to make you feel like real human massage, the Ootori SL performs massages in kneading, rolling, knocking, finger, tap and dual action motion. Further, the electric massage rollers are adjustable for different shoulder width, from 1.57" to 8.27" with 3 levels. 

    ootori massage functions
    Air Massage

    Airbags are strategically located in the seat, calf, feet, and back area. they  contribute in a huge way to the soothing effect of the massage chair. When the airbags are used in concert with the roller system, you will feel like 3 massage therapists are working on you for 30 straight minutes.

    On top of that, you get 6 automatic programs with bluetooth connectivity. The Auto Programs allow you to get a full set of massage features, working in perfect harmony, with the simple push of one button.

    Therapeutic Features

    Zero Gravity
    Ootori zero gravity

    This recliner chair here is designed with 3 stages of zero gravity system - initial, comfort and deep - with the final stage reaching 180 degrees flat. All these, in one key away.

    Press the zero-gravity button to adjust the optimal position by elevating your feet to 10cm higher than your head, and 20cm higher than the heart.

    This effectively alleviates the pressure on the vertebrae, relieves the discomfort of back pain, and give your heart a holiday.

    Honestly, this is the best zero gravity massage chair out of all in this category. The most that they offer is 2 stages but at more than half of their price, this one here is able to offer the maximum available.

    Foot and Calf Massage

    Those who suffer chronic pain from standing on long hours, this is a life-saver function to you.

    There is an all-round scraping and rolling function that can effectively stimulate the plantar reflex zone to reduce your fatigue and improve the body's immunity.

    Equipped with 3 rows of foot rollers that stimulate your acupuncture points, as well as the inflation and deflation of the leg airbags squeezing your calves simultaneously, you will get a deep tissue massage with gua sha therapy on your tired feet and legs.

    Yoga Stretch

    This is where it stands out most for us - its yoga stretch program. It combines the Thai top, pull and pedal method so that your whole body can relax through stretching.

    We mention the lack of aggressiveness for therapeutic purpose in the Novo XT2’s stretching - this one here is exactly what we mean and are so happy to find.

    ootori thai massage

    On auto modes, the airbags will hold your shoulder, arms, waist, hips, legs and feet before having the chair gradually stretch your body, meanwhile, you can also enjoy kneading, shiatsu, padding on manual mode, simultaneously. 

    Heat 

    When it comes to heating function, it does just the standard - lumbar heating zone only.

    Nonetheless, two heating pads are provided to help with the air compression technology to give a more effective massage at the lumbar area. Maintaining at a constant 42 degrees, it is just the right temperature to make the body comfortable and relaxed. 

    Other Bonus Features

    • Intelligent hand controller with LCD display 
    • Bluetooth technology allows user to listen to their favorite music and phone calls on high quality speakers
    • LED lights located on side panels help create a relaxing atmosphere

    Conclusion

    When you put all that together with the Ootori SL Massage Chair's surprisingly easy-to-use remote and its impressive 3 year warranty (more than the standard industry's 2 years), and a comparatively low price point, it's quite hard not to fall in love with this model.

    Osaki OS-Pro Admiral

    The Osaki OS-Pro Maxim A Massage Chair is a fantastic, well-designed massage chair packed with innovative features and functions that both casual and therapeutic users will love.

    It is priced middle-range and is a chair that is more affordable to the majority mass.

    Just about every feature the Osaki OS-Pro has to offer was carefully thought out and well implemented.

    It may not have as many bells and whistles as other chairs, but what it has, it’s done well.

    Core Features

    Automatic Body Scanning

    The moment you sit in and switch on the chair, its automatic body scanning feature will measure your shoulder’s height and legs’ lenghts to ensure the rollers are correctly in place to massage you at the right places.

    L Track

    Unlike all the chairs we’ve reviewed thus far, it uses an L track frame here. It’s basically an extension of the S-track where the rollers follow the shape of an ‘L’ starting at the neck and continue down through the curves of the back, then continue even further around to the glutes and hamstring area.  

    Now if you’re to ask whether S or L track is better, again, the question goes back to your personal condition.

    If you have a lot of tension in the glutes (which in turn cause back and leg pain), or if you have certain forms of sciatica, then an L-track like the OS-Pro Maxim will be more beneficial to you. 

    Advanced 3D Massage

    Do you often wonder what it means when companies advertise their chairs to be ‘3D technology’? Just like this one does?

    It is actually an innovative form of engineering where users are allowed to control the length of the rollers that extend out from the backrest.

    Basically, it means you get to manually adjust the rollers to move away from the massage track (up to 3”) to give a deeper massage.

    Space-saving Technology

    We have to admit we’re pleasantly surprised with this because it shares the same groundbreaking technology as the Novo XT2 of requiring just 2 inches between the chair and the wall in upright position, but the Osaki OS-Pro Admiral is almost half of the former’s price. 

    This space-saving technology is certainly welcomed at any home because the chair itself is burly enough, anything that minimizes floor space is a great bonus worthy to be highlighted.

    Massage Options

    In terms of massage options, there are 6 different massage styles in the form of:

    • Kneading
    • Tapping
    • Kneading and Tapping
    • Shiatsu
    • Clapping
    • Rolling

    On top of that, it utilizes second generation airbags to render its excellent air massage that can be enjoyed either in full-body mode, or by selectively activating airbags by the following body regions:

    • Shoulders
    • Arms
    • Hands
    • Thighs
    • Feet
    • Calf

    There are altogether 16 sets of auto massage programmes which is considered substantial, given the Kahuna SM9000, at almost double the price, has far less. There are 5 levels of intensity levels to control in total.

    Therapeutic Features  

    Zero Gravity 

    Zero gravity position where your weight will be evenly distributed throughout the back is offered to provide refined massage and improved blood circulation.

    Lumbar and calf heat

    Although heat element is present in both lumbar and calf area, the temperature is rather mild and cannot be adjusted. This is where it falls somewhere short compared to its peers, nonetheless, it’s better than nothing because heat helps loosen tensed muscles so it still does serve its therapeutic purposes.  

    Other Bonus Features

    • Bluetooth speakers along the headrest allow users to listen to their favourite songs
    • USB connector to charge your phone and enjoy your massage at the same time
    • Footrest can extend up to 7.1 inches to fit various heights
    • Multi Language Support
    • Easy to Use LCD Remote
    Osaki bluetooth

    Conclusion

    The Osaki OS-Pro Maxim Massage Chair is not cheap, although it is not the most expensive model we’ve covered thus far. It is fairly easy to use though, so even if you’re not particularly tech-savvy, you will still be able to master it fairly quickly. 

    It has by far one of the best design appearance-wise, with quilted backseat and LED light control so if you don’t particularly fancy the bulky outlook of most massage chairs, this one here may appeal to you most. 


    Top 5 Best Massage Chair for the Money Reviews 

    Because hey, not everyone has that kind of unlimited money, right?  When it comes to the best massage chair for the money, we have a clear winner here. 

    Kahuna LM6800

    Probably not a surprise but yes, it is the Kahuna LM6800 Full Body Massage Chair that takes the top spot of our best massage chair for the money category. 

    If you’ve read some of our reviews before, you will agree that this chair definitely deserves the top spot with its array of features at such an affordable price.

    Core Features

    There is a lot to like about the LM6800 - it is built around the same core technologies as the Novo XT, think quad rollers, space-saving technology and zero gravity seating. 

    In fact, it trumps over a lot of other competitors in that it offers 3 zero gravity positions. Now, if you’ve read our reviews above, you will know that that is the maximum number current technology has to offer at this age. 

    LM6800 space saving

    For the SM9000 to have this, that is understandable - it is, after all, a high end massage chair but for the LM6800 to have the same feat?

    That is value for money. If you are to say that this is the best zero gravity massage chair, we wouldn’t disagree with you. 


    Another thing where it beats the Novo XT2 is that it has computer body scan technology where the chair will automatically scan your body size to customize your massage.

    See what we mean when we say this is the chair for everyone? 

    It does, however, use a single L track system only so that’s where it falls short of the Novo XT2.

    But in terms of coverage, it has a wider scope compared to that of an S track only as it reaches the bottom of your glutes and thighs.

    Massage Options

    You don’t get as many (or as advanced) as the Novo XT / Luraco i7, nonetheless, you get all the basics a massage chair should have:

    • Kneading
    • Tapping
    • Kneading and Tapping
    • Rolling
    • Shiatsu

    In terms of air massage, although its uses more airbags (36 in total) than the Novo XT2, they are First Generation airbags so not necessarily as advanced.

    As such, we can only say that their air massage is acceptable but nothing spectacular. There are three levels of air pressure and speed though so that is a good amount of choice to have.

    Therapeutic Features

    Again, they fall nothing short of the Novo XT2’s (at a fraction of the latter’s price), something we’re still very amazed at. They include:

    LM6800 full body massage

    Yoga Stretch - One of industry’s best, Kahuna’s patented Yoga Stretch program stretches your body fully with just the right pressure and aggressiveness (not too mediocre).

    Heating - Not just limited at the lumbar area, it offers calf heat too to soothe the legs.

    Foot Massage - Dual rollers with detachable and washable footer area cotton for sanitary purpose.

    It is one of the best rated foot and calf massager by industry experts. 

    Conclusion

    As one that receives some of the best massage chair ratings among users and industry experts, the Kahuna LM6800 is one of the most feature-rich massage chairs you can find at this price point. If you measure your best according to ‘price per feature’, you’ll see how superb it is in terms of value for the money just by doing a little maths.

    Truly an amazing chair, offered at an amazing price THIS BLACK FRIDAY AND CYBER MONDAY SALE

    Relaxonchair MKII Classic

    Another strong contender in the best value massage chair category is Relaxonchair’s MK-Classic.

    Again, this is another chair that made it to our best massage chair under $2000 category and it is one that resembles the LM6800 in many ways.

    Core Features

    Featuring a similar L-track system but longer at 50 inches, the MK-Classic contours the back and glides from the lower skull all the way down to the buttocks and under thigh area.

    Given its track being one of the longest in the market, it is able to accommodate up to 6’5” tall which, although not as much as the Novo XT2 and Luraco i7, is still deemed substantial as a massage chair for tall person. 

    MK Classic l track
    MK classic zero gravity

    Similarly, it offers intelligent body scan technology and 3 zero gravity positions up to 160 degrees recline.

    What it has that others don’t is a feature called ‘Sleep Mode’, whereby the chair will maintain your pre-set position (be it recline or zero gravity) even after the massage has ended so that you won’t be interrupted if you’ve fallen asleep during the session. 

    Massage Options

    Again, it resembles the LM6800 in its massage options - Kneading, Tapping, a combination of both, Shiatsu and Rolling.

    Likewise, there are 3 levels of intensity and speed control as well as quad rollers that are adjustable up to 3 different widths for your back massages.

    What it differs though is its air massage system. Although using the same First Generation airbags, this one here compensates by having A LOT of airbags (42 to be exact) installed strategically across the chair in the arms, hips, shoulder, thighs, calves, and feet area.

    These airbags are programmed to inflate/deflate separately which causes the body to twist and stretch on shoulders, lower back, hips, and thighs.

    You can choose to have them working simultaneously or alternatively, selectively activate them to perform individually on the spots you require most.

    Therapeutic Features

    The MK-Classic falls a bit short in this regard in that it doesn’t offer heating anywhere else except the lumbar region. It also only utilizes a sole massage roller at the bottom of the foot massager so certainly not the most ideal when it comes to foot massage. 

    Nonetheless, the multiple airbags on the sides and back of the legs provide a good compression massage to relieve fatigue.

    MK-classic yoga stretch

    It has a remarkable Yoga Stretch program though.

    This program has several ‘mini programs’ that work simultaneously - while one stretches your upper body, the other stretches your legs and thighs during massages. 

    By getting massages while your muscle is either stretched or squeezed, your tired muscles will be rejuvenated faster and get more energy than in one fixed position. 

    Conclusion

    We should probably say something about the Relaxonchair MK-Classic price. While it may still be a rather substantial amount to spend on, it actually costs less than you may think.

    Most chairs that offer this level of functionality have a high-end price tag but the MK-Classic is at most a mid-range chair.

    We will say it is a rare combination of form and function at an outstanding price, a value for its money buy.

    Human Touch Wholebody 7.1

    The Human Touch Wholebody 7.1 Massage Chair did not take the
    top spot like the Novo XT2 does, however, it’s worthy to take a look at this chair for those who love the Human Touch modern ergonomic design but not the price tag.

    This one here has a much more affordable price point but with more basic, frequently-used features.

    Core Features

    The standout feature has to be its patent-pending FlexGlide and 3D orbital massage technologies.

    Free from the pinching and friction associated with typical massage chairs, every contour of your body is therapeutically touched by an unparalleled flexibility and seamless glide.

    As the company itself puts it, it feels much like a masseuse upgrading you from a dry to a warm oil massage.

    It utilizes a dual motor system so that you can adjust your back and leg rest independently.

    There  is also a 55 degree swivel base so you get to enjoy your massage from any angle.

    Wholebody 3D
    Massage Options

    The Wholebody 7.1 utilizes 4 massage techniques: Stretch, Flex, Tone, and Glide.

    While it’s named differently, the effect they have are rather similar to the basics that we are all familiar with. 

    In terms of in-built massage programs, there are altogether 5 that aim for pain relief, stress relief, physical therapy, and relaxation:

    • Full Back
    • Upper Back
    • Lower Back
    • Relax
    • Sleep
    Therapeutic Features

    When it comes to therapeutic effects, nothing beats Human Touch’s touch on back pain (pun intended). 

    Do you know that their massage chairs are the only chairs endorsed by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) that serve as an effective tool for back pain patients? 

    It goes as far back as 1979, where these chairs provide measurable physical and psychological benefits to a wide range of users including back pain patients, active seniors, sports and outdoor enthusiasts, and those living with stress and chronic pain.

    All 5 of the expertly designed massage programs help the body recover from a variety of physical conditions, including Back Pain, Sciatica, Arthritis & Fibromyalgia.

    BodyMap Pro
    Wholebody bodymap pro

    Different from other massage chairs where you’ll only feel the effect after finishing one cycle of massage, the Wholebody 7.1 gives you an instant relief right where you need it by using what it calls the ‘BodyMap PRO’ function.

    This remote allows you to simply press a button to indicate where you want to feel better, and the chair will pinpoint the massage rollers on targeted locations.

    Patented Warm Air Technology
    Wholebody warm air

    The chair’s patented Warm Air Technology targets the shoulders to lumbar area to soothe and relax you, preparing your muscles for a deeply-penetrating massage.

    2 lumbar heat modules  are encompassed to gently envelope your back, soothing tight muscles and relieving pain.

    Retractable Foot & Calf Massager

    Wholebody foot

    The ottoman on the WholeBody 7.1 converts to a foot and calf massager with CirQlation Technology to massage your legs in an upward motion, forcing blood to the body's core.

    This is especially beneficial for those with high blood pressure, low blood pressure, sleep issues, fibromyalgia, etc. 

    It also rotates into an ottoman to provide a comfortable place to relax your legs when a massage is not what you have in mind.

    Conclusion

    So as you can see, the Human Touch Wholebody 7.1 Massage Chair is focused more on the basics, as compared to the Novo XT2 of the same brand.

    If you suffer from back issues or chronic pain, this is one massage chair that we will highly recommend without any reserves.

    iRest Massage Chair

    Another chair at an amazing price, the iRest SL Track Massage Chair Recliner is, like its name, one best lower back massager for those suffering from back pain.

    It has an incredibly robust design that is filled with both convenience and therapeutic features.

    Core Features

    Unlike most massage chairs, this one here uses an unconventional I track back quad roller mechanism, which is a powerful intelligent system that provides a great and healthy deep tissue massage.

    The rollers are able to glide not just from your neck to your glutes but also across the shoulders and hips and this is why it is regarded as one of the best chair for lower back pain sufferers. 

    Massage Options

    When it comes to massage options, this one here has 8 different types:

    • Kneading
    • Shiatsu
    • Rolling
    • Knocking
    • Tapping
    • Combination (Kneading & Tapping)
    • Air Bag Massage

    That is value for money, considering many of the same price range offer a maximum 5 massage options. All the massage options have adjustable speed and intensity of up to 3 levels, and you get to manually adjust the width of the rollers too (3 widths) to suit your body size.

    There are 5 different automatic programs to choose from, including a full body yoga stretch. This is where your feet and legs will be squeezed before being pulled downwards to the ground as the backrest pulls your core (upper body) back into the recline position.

    We will have to say that their yoga stretch is pretty impressive, although everything else is rather standard. By no means we mean they are not good, they get the job done well.

    Therapeutic Features 

    Apart from the utilisation of the I track, Forever Rest also does things differently with their zero gravity function. Not limited to just the industry’s standard of 3 recline position, you get to adjust the reclining angle any way you want to, into the most comfortable position.

    FR zero G

    This is because it uses dual reclining motors in its design.

    What this means is that you get to control the reclining of the back and legs separately, and individually. This way, you get a true zero gravity positioning for the ultimate relaxation.

    Another therapeutic feature that stands out is its foot massage.

    Unlike most chairs in this price range that can only offer acupressure massage, it offers both foot rolling and foot and calf acupressure simultaneously.  

    If you’ve not tried this combination before, you probably wouldn’t know but oh, the difference it makes! Once you’ve tried it, you won’t be able to turn back. 

    Conclusion

    At slightly over $1,000, we have to say the iRest SL Track Massage Chair Recliner is value for the money. But keep in mind, you have to be under 6’3” to reap its optimal benefits.

    Real Relax 3D

    Last but not least, it is the Real Relax 3D Massage Chair Recliner that we want to talk about.

    If you like our top pick best massage chair under $1000 review here, you will love the better but slightly more expensive version of this Real Relax full body shiatsu massage chair here.

    Core Features

    The only massage chair in this category with a hybrid S/L track, it has 'robot rollers' - hands that glide from your neck down to your hips and glutes area. 

    Once you sit in the chair, an automatic computer scan technology will detect your body shape before adjusting the back roller position to give you a custom fit. 

    A stand out feature is that it can be used as an individual recliner chair to sleep, rest or watch tv in when not in use. You do not need to select a certain massage program to tune it to a recline position for you to relax comfortably. As such, it makes for one of the best home massage chair to have for those looking for one.  

    It wouldn’t take up much space at your home, because it utilizes a space-saving technology of only 1.96 inches required from the wall. It comes fully assembled, all it requires is just plug in the power, put the footrest down and you are good to go.

    Massage Options

    Real Relax massage options

    As pictured left, there are 6 massage options for you to choose from.

    You can either choose one for the whole body, or choose a different one according to different body parts. 

    There are 4 automatic programs with a timer of up to 30 minutes to choose from.

    In manual program, the robots hands rollers width is left and right adjustable. There are altogether 3 speed and intensity each for you to adjust.

    Therapeutic Features 

    Zero gravity position is available but what’s worthy to mention is the chair’s foot roller and airbag system.

    For the latter, it now has an upgraded vertical wraparound airbag so that you can put and keep your arms in the airbag effortlessly. 

    This is something a lot of people struggle with we find, as it’s always either having difficulty putting your arms through to the arm slots, or that the slots are too loose to hold your arms secure in place with many massage chairs.

    With this more ergonomic design, your arms are snug and will not slip and slide around yet not too tight to the point that it’s difficult to get through it.

    RR foot

    Its foot massage is incredible though, providing a Thai type scrapping massage to relieve any foot stress or pain. 

    Conclusion

    The reason the Real Relax 3D Massage Chair Recliner didn’t score a higher spot in our list is due to its height restriction. The most it is able to accommodate is 6 feet (and that is slightly pushing it already) and that is rather limiting to a good majority of people. 

    It is a good, basic massage chair nonetheless. If you’re under 6 feet, it might just be the best massage chair ever for you.

    Read on to find out what our top picks are . Best of all, there is a HUGE BLACK FRIDAY AND CYBER MONDAY SALE ONGOING NOW - for a BIG TICKET item like this, what better time to buy than now?  


    Luraco i7 Plus iRobotics

    Dubbed as one of the world’s best massage chair by industry experts, the Luraco i7 Plus is the latest model of the iRobotics range from Luraco.

    If you don’t already know, Luraco is a multi-award winning brand and proud manufacturer of the first and only American-made massage chairs in the industry.

    Reputable for its quality and luxurious medical massage chairs, the i7 Plus has one of the most up-to-date intelligent sensor technology that is able to detect the most accurate body shape, neck and leg length so as to know where to hit the right spots.

    That, together with its full body heat (feet, seat and back) function and 3 layered double rollers foot and calf massager will surely let you experience what a true full body massage feels like.

    But perhaps what stand out the most about the i7 Pl​​​​us is its body swivel with twist stretching function that you cannot find in any other chair in the industry.

    This helps get to those areas where you don’t even know needed, certainly something that not any other chair can achieve.

    Apart from that, you get to experience the latest in massage technologies featuring zero gravity (neutral body posture position) which has been proven to improve blood circulation and heighten the state of relaxation and well-being (read more ab​​​​out zero gravity here).

    luraco i7
    Other features:
    • 9 automatic preset programs
    • Limitless customizable individual body part massage settings 
    • Up to 5 personal user memory settings
    • Unique and advanced body, hand and 2 position foot stretching
    • 5 levels of multi-sectional intensity controls
    • Patented integrated health monitoring features (blood pressure and heart rates)
    • Human voice response setting (in 7 languages)
    • Intelligent self-diagnostics

    What We Like 

    Superior back massage techniques - Thanks to the 100 air cells and 12 powerful motors it is equipped with, you get a true 3D robotic system that makes it the best massage chair for lower back pain, including neck and shoulder areas. In fact, this is the chair that has the highest number of airbags so you can be sure you’re in for a thorough air massage.

    Massage chair for tall person - We like that it can accommodate users of up to 6’7” and weight up to 300lbs. This has got to do with the fact that it is fully manufactured in the U.S, hence it is made with the American size in mind. In terms of the best recliner for tall man, the i7 Plus is definitely one high contender.

    Smart touch screen (patented) - First in the industry to have have one, we like it because you get to see and operate the controls easily even when it’s dark. And if you’ve used rubber button keypads before, you will know that they rub off and turn all rubbery after awhile which becomes rather gross to touch so this is a thoughtful feature to have.

    At a glance

    Pros

    • Quietest chair in the industry
    • Best massage chair for tall person
    • Real genuine leather at all touch surfaces (head, arms, shoulders, hips and feet)
    • Multi-award winning with leading technology with patented features
    • Made in the USA with 5 year warranty

    Cons

    • Body scanning takes awhile 
    • Large (may not fit in every home)
    • Expensive (not everyone can afford)

    Conclu​​​​sion

    Overall, the Luraco i7 Plus iRobotics is an excellent massage chair - it is even recognized by the UL and FDA to be a medical massage chair so you know its quality is guaranteed.

    One of the quietest model in the industry without much noise generated from its air pumps and motors, it is definitely one luxurious massage chair to own, as reflected in its price point which, to be honest, may not be so friendly to many people. ​

    Which is why if you're really interested in getting one, you shouldn't miss out this year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday mega sale  - it is one mega savings, to say the least!


    Kahuna LM6800

    For a more budget-friendly full body massage chair, the Kahuna LM6800 is one popular choice all thanks to its all-rounded features at a reasonable price point.

    It is well known as one of the best massage recliner chair as well as best zero gravity massage chair the industry has to offer due to its ergonomic design.

    Now updated: Arm Airbag has new design, timer button up to 30 minutes, double layer shoulder airbags, extra foot padding and remote holder included.

    Mimicking the human hands of a professional massage therapist, it kneads, taps, rolls, shiatsu as well as combines both knead and tap to give you a full body relief.

     While it targets more on the back massages with its manual massage techniques, its 4-roller L-track frame structure supports your neck to back and all the way to your buttocks to decompress each individual spine of your body.

    While it may not have as many air cells as the i7 Plus iRobotics, its uniquely designed air cell massage system can cover most of the surface area as the air cells are programmed to inflate separately, thus causing the body to twist and deep stretch.

    The minimal number (36) of air cells also mean the chair can perform quieter to give you the ultimate relaxation.

    Kahuna LM6800 space saving technology


    Other features:
    • Space saving technology with 3 zero gravity positions.
    • Dual foot rollers on the feet area
    • Computerized body scan technology
    • 5 Manual Massage Techniques
    • 6 Auto Programs
    • Heating Therapy on lower back and legs
    • Adjustable roller speed and air cell massage up to 3 levels

    What We Like 

    Yoga-stretching program - Kahuna’s signature program for the LM6800, it stretches your entire body to an awakening sensation and you can instantly feel the blood circulation and stretching of your whole body, giving you an entire body relief after use, just like how it is in a yoga class. 

    SH-Chiro program - Another signature program that is truly functional and beneficial (unlike some useless gimmicks that some other brands offer) designed to specially target your spinal area.

    The program unlocks nerve energy and allow it to flow better down your spine and throughout your entire body so for those suffering from sore backs due to long hours in the office, this is the best massage chair for lower back pain you can get to relieve your spine pressure.

    Space-saving technology - Last but not least and the thing we like most is the ergonomic structural design of the Kahuna LM6800. All it needs is just 3 inches from the wall during zero-gravity position transition because it slides forward while reclining.

    If you know about full body massage chairs you'll know this means a lot because one can take up quite some space. With this technology that only the Kahuna has, you can save up a lot of floor space and place the chair anywhere in your home, aligning it with other furniture. 

    At a glance

    Pros

    •  Reasonable price (best massage chair under $2000)
    • Multi-award winning with leading technology with patented features
    • Detachable & washable footer area cotton for sanitary purpose
    • Space saving technology
    • Noise reduction technology
    • 3 choices of zero gravity
    • 3 year warranty

    Cons

    • May be problematic for people taller than 6’ to fit in the chair (alternative option for people over 6’ here)
    • Massage only the back and not the thigh, leg and feet (get this to use in conjunction)
    • Lesser number of massage programs
    • Weight limit of 250 pounds

    Conclu​​​​sion

    If you’re not prepared to fork out $8-9k on a massage chair, then the Kahuna LM6800 Massage Chair Recliner is a very good choice as it is almost 4 times cheaper than the world’s best massage chair.​​

    It still has a wide range of features, albeit the lack of deep massage in the leg area (you can always get this to use in conjunction with and it will still be much cheaper than high end massage chairs).

    If back is your problematic area, then this is the perfect massage chair for you because it targets on just that. Also a FDA-registered medical massage chair, it is the top recommended massage chair on Amazon, no surprises there.


    Another reasonably-priced full body massage chair that you can consider is the Relaxonchair MK-II Plus Massage Chair.

    It is very similar to the Kahuna LM6800 in many ways, some saying it is even better in that it offers leg and foot massage as well unlike the former.

    relaxonchair mkII plus

    Employing the 5 manual specific targeted massages - knead, tap, knead+tap, shiatsu and rolling techniques, the Relaxonchair MK-II Plus promises a deep tissue massage experience by providing detailed, human-like massage throughout the body.

    The multiple airbags located at your hip and waistline area inflate for compression massage and this works to align your lower back and pelvis area, thus relieving any muscle tension.

    The highlight of this product is its stretching function, referred to as the “spinal decompression” program. How it works is that vigorous air cells are incorporated to pin your body in place while the chair moves you to a calculated routine before slowly stretching out the leg and back muscles.

    To enhance this experience, it has a buttock L-Track massage system whereby its dual rollers, which conform to one’s spine’s natural shape, glide from the upper back all the way down to under the seat towards the gluteus muscles to provide users with a true full body massage.  

    relaxonchair
    Other features:
    • 3 massage speed control
    • 3 levels of airbag intensity control
    • Computerized body scanning (built-in sensor automatically measure the length of spine and knows where to massage)
    • Made of high quality soft-grained synthetic leather

    What We Like 

    Superior acupressure massage - Given how similar the functions of Relaxonchair MK-II Plus and Kahuna LM6800 are in that both target mainly to relieve lower back pain and has 3 zero gravity positions (click here to find out why this is beneficial), what we like more about the former is that it caters to the lower half of your body too.

    - The uniquely designed airbags are strategically located throughout the chair including the calf and foot area (even the sole is covered!) so every part of your body can be massaged thoroughly.

    - These airbags are programmed to apply acupressure to your shoulders, arms, hips, calves and feet and they inflate and deflate independently to provide relief of muscle tension in a wonderfully soothing effect.

    Lumbar back heating - This is another feature worthy to note. 2 heating pads are placed in the lumbar area of the back to make relieving tension and relaxing aching muscles much more efficiently.

    - If you have poor posture or suffer from constant movement and strain of muscles, or if you often lift heavy objects, this function is particularly useful and essential. 

    At a glance

    Pros

    • One hand accessible remote controller with large viewing screen
    • Simple and easy to install with no tools required (minimal 3-step process)
    • 3 choices of zero gravity position (up to 180 degree flat bed)
    • Dual foot rollers under the soles for reflexology
    • One of the best massage chair under $2,000

    Cons

    • Has 4 automatic programs only compare to others who usually have 5 and above
    • Some complained about foot area being painful when massaged (tip: place a towel to give a cushioning effect)

    Conclusion

    Using top quality components and equipped with several of the same features that top tier chairs almost twice its price have, the Relaxonchair MK-II Plus Massage Chair embodies affordability with exceptional quality.

    Another contender for best massage chair for lower back pain, the MK-II Plus is especially beneficial for persons with lower back agony, have sore or tight glute muscles, or experience the ill effects of sciatica.


    Ideal Massage Shiatsu Chair

    If you like shiatsu massage, the Ideal Massage Full Featured Shiatsu Chair is your best massage chair.

    One that mimics the human hands closest, its four wheel-driven power rollers in shiatsu mode provides vertical movement on an ergonomically designed S-track rolling system, giving you the experience as that of a professional masseuse. 

    Apart from that, you get to also choose its Rolling option which is a feature that moves up and down and functions like a fixed point of revolving finger(s) pressed by a professional masseuse to give you that effective and more direct massage that stretches out your back.

    Another option that it offers is Kneading, which in short reduces muscle pain and helps work out those tight knots. You can get a combination of all that in Automatic mode, otherwise, the Manual mode lets you take control and adjust the back rollers at any point of your body.

    Other features:
    • 2 intensity level for all airbags massages
    • Built in heat therapy at back area
    • 3D intelligent detection system

    What We Like 

    Vibration - We really like the vibrating seat cushion that the Full Featured Shiatsu Chair offers and it is a feature that makes it stands out from others. This additional function stimulates the dilation of blood vessels, which in turns decrease your overall blood pressure and heart rate.

    Feet kneading - We also like how therapeutic airbags are built into the seat, shoulder, arms, foot and calves area as it gives a thorough massage overall to each body part. In particular, it has one of the most number of simulating kneading balls (6!) located in the soles of your feet to add stronger and deeper massage. If your job requires you to stand for long hours, this is the best massage chair for you to relieve those daily tired feet.  

    At a glance

    Pros

    Cons

    • Difficult returns policy (buy only from trusted sellers)
    • Limited 4 automatic programs to choose from
    • 4 massage functions only (no tapping)

    Conclusion

    At a slightly over $1,000 price point, there really isn’t much to fault the Ideal Massage Full Featured Shiatsu Chair.

    And when there's such a great bargain offered this Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale, this is something you do not want to miss.

    Many agree that it is a value for your money chair, and if you’re looking particularly for the best shiatsu massage chair, this is definitely one top contender.

    You know it is good when there are so many imitations or lookalikes of it, so definitely buy an authentic one via trusted sellers like this one here to ensure all your needs are taken care of (a 10-day return policy is offered).


    best massage shiatsu massage chair

    If you think spending over $1,000 on a massage chair is excessive, then we’d recommend the EC06C Shiatsu Chair Recliner from Best Massage.

    You do not want to compromise on functionality - you are, afterall, paying a significant amount of money over one product so we’d made sure that the product we recommend gives you the best value of money. 

    The EC06C certainly doesn’t disappoint in that regard - it is definitely one of the best massage chair under 1000 that we can find in the market.

    First of all, it has 7 massage modes and that is one of the most a massage chair has to offer if you’ve read our review above.

    This includes kneading, tapping, stretching, shiatsu, combo, air pressure and heating.

    You can choose each one manually, or you can get a combination of different massage methods from the 9 preset auto massage programs that it offers, including special full body stretching programs that mimics real yoga stretching and are suitable for most.

    It operates on an air massage system with heat therapy, meaning it uses air bags combined with heat pads (at the back and foot) to relieve muscles and joints pain and aches with an increase in blood circulation to help you recover faster.

    There are altogether 21 airbags used, which may be the least compare to all the massage chairs included in this review, but at this price point, there really isn’t much to complain especially when all airbags are strategically placed to give you the right pressure in the arms, hips, shoulder, thighs, calves and feet.

    Other features:
    • Adjustable angle according to your needs.
    • 3-level speed, width and intensity control.
    • 4-level air massage pressure have 4 levels.
    • 2 heating pads in back area and 2 other in foot area to enhance massage experience

    What We Like 

    Lower back focus - We would like to highlight the fact that amongst the 21 airbags used, multiple are placed around the hip and waistline to align the lower back and pelvis area by inflating for a compression massage.

    - This means those that suffer from lower back pain can derive similar relief as those offered by high-end brands without having to pay for the hefty price tag. This is something we really like about the EC06C because it doesn’t jeopardize functionality with its price.

    Custom fit massage - We also like how it has 11 signal test switches that work together with a holt sensor to test its user’s body height so that it can automatically adjust its massage intensity according to user’s body weight. This allows the massage chair to fit perfectly different figure, giving them an individual custom fit massage.

    Massage chair for tall person -Which brings us to our next point - the Best Massage EC06C is a massage chair for tall person as anyone up to 6’3” will be able to fit comfortably in it. And while it may not be as heavy duty as the i7 Plus iRobotics, it can still accommodate up to 265lbs, which is considered top range already in the industry.

    At a glance

    Pros

    Cons

    • No zero gravity function
    • No customer support

    Conclusion

    One thing to note, and also the biggest flaw of the Best Massage EC06C Shiatsu Chair Recliner is that it does not offer zero gravity function. It does recline (up to 170 degrees), but it doesn’t offer zero gravity feature that gives you so much benefits.

    And while it does offer 100% money back refund if you’re not happy with the product, its rather poor customer service support also means you may not be able to contact them at all.

    However, it is one full body massage chair of great value and if you’re lucky to get one without any fault/defect, we think you will enjoy the EC06C Shiatsu Chair Recliner very much.
