An Overview On Massage Chairs

When you want to alleviate stress or ease the pain of aching muscles in the comfort of your home, there’s nothing more convenient than a massage chair, which mimics the motions and techniques of a massage therapist. There are tons of massage chair styles to consider, from poufy recliners with built-in vibration features to futuristic-looking options outfitted with dozens of massaging features.

How do massage chairs work? The products have evolved substantially since their invention in the late 1940s, from the usage of a crank-wheel system to move massage rollers to the addition of electricity-controlled rollers that automatically power the massage wheels.

The earliest electric models used 1D systems that dragged rollers up and down a person’s back, but modern models offer 3D systems, with modes and rollers that press into your muscles. Some chairs now also have compact air bags or cells that inflate to apply pressure to your arms, legs and feet. Other common features include vibration, Bluetooth capabilities, and heated seats and backrests. But all are controlled by some sort of  computer-assisted system via a remote that allows you to adjust the settings to your liking.

Like shopping for other types of furniture, choosing a massage chair for your home depends on your needs and style preferences. Do you want a massage chair that looks like a massage chair? Or would you prefer one that’s disguised as a recliner and blends in with the other furniture in your home?

Other things to consider include: price (chairs that have simple vibrating massage modes are more affordable than ones with multiple rollers and air bag massagers), the amount of space you have (some can be over 70 inches long when reclined), and what you plan to use it for. When considering the latter point, if you’re just looking for a TV or reading chair — rather than a muscle pain- or stress-relieving device — a less-complex, more affordable model may do.

DWYM Fun Fact

The massage chair dates back to 1948, when American inventor Roland Labbe submitted a patent for a chair that consisted of a stool mounted on a pedestal. Sliding arms attached to the chair stretched the user’s limbs and vibration helped relieve tension.

The Massage Chair Buying Guide

  • Swedish and shiatsu are two massage therapy techniques commonly used in the chairs. Shiatsu aims to release tension in specific pressure points on the body using pressing, rotating and sweeping movements. And the goal of the Swedish variety is to improve circulation using kneading motions and gliding strokes.
  • Some massage chairs arrive in multiple shipping boxes, so make sure you know how many will be arriving to ensure you have all of your parts.
  • Before purchasing a massage chair, consider the height of those who will be using it and the product’s capacity. For example, some chairs aren’t designed to be used by individuals over 5 feet 10 inches tall, while others can accommodate those up to 6.5 feet tall.
  • Where you plan to keep your chair is another factor to consider before purchasing. The products vary greatly in size and weight, ranging from 45 pounds to over 160 pounds, so consider a lighter option if you plan to move it around frequently.
