10 best massage chairs in 2022
10 best mas­sage chairs.

Mas­sage chairs help relieve ten­sion from the mus­cles and spine, improve blood cir­cu­la­tion and lymph flow, restore strength and relax after a busy day.1.2. This is a great alter­na­tive to going to a mas­sage ther­a­pist and a chi­ro­prac­tor. With the help of a mas­sage chair, you can take care of your health, improve your mood and well-being, and all this in a com­fort­able envi­ron­ment.2.3.

Our expert — senior sales con­sul­tant for mas­sage chairs Oleg Lebe­dev helped to choose the 10 best mod­els for home and office. When choos­ing mod­els for our rat­ing, sev­er­al para­me­ters were tak­en into account: price, num­ber of videos and pro­grams, ease of oper­a­tion, the pres­ence of addi­tion­al options, such as acupunc­ture palm mas­sage, a hood and a wig­gle mode.

It should be borne in mind that many unscrupu­lous man­u­fac­tur­ers indi­cate more pil­lows and rollers than they actu­al­ly are. For exam­ple, a man­u­fac­tur­er divides 1 pil­low into 2–6 sec­tions, which does not affect the effec­tive­ness of the chair in any way, but allows you to increase the num­ber of pil­lows by 2–6 times in the prod­uct descrip­tion. This is a com­mon mar­ket­ing ploy. The same sit­u­a­tion with rollers. Users should be aware that one car­riage can­not have more than 4 rollers that move in all axes.

There are 5 pre­mi­um and 5 bud­get mas­sage chairs in our rat­ing. They dif­fer from each oth­er in the fol­low­ing para­me­ters:

    Number of programs. In premium models, there are 16–25 programs with fine tuning. In economy options, there are usually no more than 12 programs, and they cannot be configured, and they practically do not differ from each other.
    The number of rollers. Premium models have from 10 to 12 rollers, economy models have from 4 to 8. Of course, we are talking about an “honest” number of rollers.
    3D-4D massage function. In the premium segment, 4D massage means that the rollers move on all axes. In the economy segment, a maximum of 3D massage is possible when the rollers move left and right, up and down, but not in depth. And this is essential for high-quality muscle development.
    The Zero‑G option, or zero gravity option, is the angle of the chair at which the user is in the most comfortable position. In premium chairs, the angle of inclination is maximum. In the economy segment, the chair does not tilt as it should, and this affects the sensations.
    Foot massage. There is nothing to complain about in the premium segment, but in the economy segment in most cases it is absent, and where it is, then there are only 1–2 rollers per foot.
    Body scan. This is a mandatory feature in premium models. With its help, the chair “determines” the location of the user’s shoulders and adjusts the programs so that the massage effect “falls” on the desired zones. In the economy segment, this function is absent, which significantly reduces the effectiveness of massage.
    Palm massage. Most chairs from the premium segment have this feature. The economy options do not.
    Control. In premium models, control is carried out using a touch screen. Plus, some models additionally have a remote control. In the chairs from the economy segment, there is only a mechanical remote control.
    Adjustment to the dimensions of the user. In chairs from the premium segment, due to the design, materials and the “body scan” function, a person of any body size can sit. In budget chairs, this is often a problem. The chair must be chosen for you.

Rating of the top 10 massage chairs for home and office

1. Kezga Chair

Kezga Chair
Kez­ga Chair.

The first place in our rat­ing is occu­pied by a chair from the Kez­ga brand. This man­u­fac­tur­er sells goods direct­ly, with­out deal­ers, shops and inter­me­di­aries, due to which mas­sage chairs are 2 or even 4 times more prof­itable than com­peti­tors.

This chair has 24 auto­mat­ic pro­grams, as well as addi­tion­al man­u­al ones. The chair has 12 mas­sage rollers, and a guide of 136 cm allows 4 rollers to move over the entire back area and in all planes, also work­ing on the gluteal mus­cle. The oth­er 6 rollers are respon­si­ble for foot mas­sage — 3 for each foot. The remain­ing 2 mas­sage the calves from behind in a cir­cu­lar motion.

The dif­fer­ence between this mas­sage chair and oth­er mod­els is that the con­trol pan­el with a joy­stick (in addi­tion to the touch screen) is locat­ed right at hand in such a way that dur­ing the mas­sage you do not have to pull your hand out of the chair.

This mod­el has a spe­cial hood over the head, which many even the most expen­sive com­peti­tors do not have. The body scan func­tion and mul­ti­ple air cush­ions help posi­tion the body in the right way and lock it where you want it when you need it. Also in the chair there is a func­tion of heat­ing, rock­ing and Zero G func­tion. In addi­tion, stereo speak­ers are pro­vid­ed in the mas­sage chair, you can turn on your music via blue­tooth. There is also wired and wire­less phone charg­ing.

The design of the chair is futur­is­tic and at the same time strict, so it will fit per­fect­ly into any inte­ri­or. The man­u­fac­tur­er offers an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty to return the chair with­in 2 weeks if the prod­uct is not to your lik­ing.

Massage chair VictoryFit VF-M58
Mas­sage chair Vic­to­ry­Fit VF-M58.

The mod­el allows you to per­form 3 types of mas­sage: point Shi­at­su, air-com­pres­sion and relax­ing.

How to choose a massage chair

As our expert Oleg Lebe­dev notes, the choice of a mas­sage chair mod­el depends on the pur­pose of its pur­chase — for home relax­ation or for the office.

- First of all, many peo­ple look at the price, but I advise you to pay atten­tion to the con­di­tions of return. It depends on how easy it will be to return the prod­uct if you don’t like it or it turns out to be defec­tive,” notes Oleg Lebe­dev.

In addi­tion to the price and return con­di­tions, it is impor­tant to pay atten­tion to the fol­low­ing para­me­ters:

    the weight that the chair can support — the more, the better;
    execution of the chair — length, shape, materials;
    the location of the rollers and pillows for massage;
    ease of control — in inexpensive massage chairs, only a remote control is provided, in premium ones, in addition to the remote control, there is a touch screen;
    the number of programs and modes, as well as the ability to configure them;
    additional options — for example, the presence of a hood, infrared heating or a wiggle mode.

It must be said that the mate­ri­als in the chairs of the top seg­ment prac­ti­cal­ly do not dif­fer, it’s just that some­times they come up with fash­ion­able names. The chairs are about the same size. But the design can be dif­fer­ent: for exam­ple, there are chairs of tra­di­tion­al shape and in the form of a cap­sule.

It is very impor­tant how the user feels in the chair. For exam­ple, mod­els with a hood (visor on top) help a per­son “hide” from the eyes of oth­ers. In a chair with a hood, the user feels com­fort­able, which pro­motes relax­ation. And if you put such chairs in a row, then those sit­ting in them will not see each oth­er.

Or, for exam­ple, anoth­er option is a closed leg block. It makes the mod­el more com­fort­able for the user, plus the mas­sage in such a block is of bet­ter qual­i­ty.

Massage chair expert reviews

— I think that the emer­gence of mas­sage chairs is a huge achieve­ment. In addi­tion, recent progress has stepped far for­ward. Now for sane mon­ey you can buy an excel­lent chair, which in many cas­es will replace a mas­sage ther­a­pist.

Of course, if you have seri­ous health prob­lems and require a spe­cial mas­sage, then you can use the chair only after con­sult­ing a doc­tor or dur­ing the ses­sion do not affect prob­lem areas. But in most cas­es, a chair is a con­ve­nient, safe and effec­tive device that allows you to get a mas­sage at any time, choose the type and dura­tion of expo­sure on your own,” notes our expert Oleg Lebe­dev. – And also a chair and eco­nom­i­cal­ly prof­itable. You can find out how much it costs to call a mas­sage ther­a­pist at home, and then fig­ure out how many times a year you may need a mas­sage. Most like­ly, you will come to the con­clu­sion that it is more prof­itable to buy a chair and use it at any con­ve­nient time.

Popular questions and answers

The pos­si­bil­i­ties of mas­sage chairs are of inter­est to many poten­tial buy­ers. Our expert Oleg Lebe­dev answers the most pop­u­lar ques­tions about these devices.

What is the benefit of a massage chair?

- The same as any mas­sage is use­ful. The mas­sage effect helps to improve blood cir­cu­la­tion and lymph flow, which means that your organs and tis­sues will receive more oxy­gen and nutri­ents, and tox­ins will leave the body faster. Mas­sage allows you to relieve ten­sion from the mus­cles, so it will be eas­i­er for you to relax and fall asleep after a work­ing day.1.2. Men will be inter­est­ed to know that the mas­sage effect stim­u­lates blood flow in the pelvic organs — this is impor­tant for the pre­ven­tion of con­ges­tion in the prostate.

Who should not use a massage chair?

- The use of the chair is con­traindi­cat­ed for preg­nant women for a long time, because dur­ing the ses­sion there is a rush of blood to the pelvic organs, which may cause con­trac­tions. Peo­ple with throm­bo­sis and vari­cose veins should not use the chair with­out med­ical advice. Most like­ly, mas­sage effects will be con­traindi­cat­ed for them.

There are oth­er dis­eases that can become an obsta­cle to the use of the chair. These include:

• skin dis­eases — eczema, der­mati­tis;
• chron­ic patholo­gies of the uro­gen­i­tal area and intestines;
• acute inflam­ma­to­ry process­es;
• malig­nant tumors;
• dis­eases of the joints and spine.

For any health prob­lems, it is bet­ter to seek the opin­ion of a doc­tor. The spe­cial­ist will tell you whether hard­ware mas­sage is right for you or not.

How long can you sit in a massage chair?

- Every­thing is indi­vid­ual here, but, on aver­age, no more than 30–60 min­utes. The first ses­sion should be short — 5–10 min­utes. With good health, the dura­tion of the mas­sage effect can be grad­u­al­ly increased. The main thing is not to over­do it. Even if you feel great, this is not a rea­son to lie in a mas­sage chair for sev­er­al hours.

Can you lose weight with a massage chair?

- You need to under­stand that the chair is not a panacea for excess weight. Yes, it can be used to improve blood cir­cu­la­tion, reduce swelling, but it will not work to smooth out the man­i­fes­ta­tions of cel­lulite and lose weight. To do this, you need a diet and car­dio equip­ment.

Can children use the massage chair?

- Chil­dren under 12–13 years of age are not rec­om­mend­ed to use these devices, as their skele­ton is elas­tic and eas­i­ly deformed. Too sud­den move­ment can harm the child. In addi­tion, the impact of mas­sage rollers in the head and neck area is harm­ful for chil­dren. Arm­chairs are designed for adults, and chil­dren are much small­er. There­fore, the roller mech­a­nism in the back of the unit will in any case come into con­tact with the neck and head of the child.

But even here there are excep­tions. Many chairs from Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ers are made to accom­mo­date the growth of the local pop­u­la­tion, which is much low­er than ours. There­fore, for a tall child, such a chair can be com­fort­able and safe.

Mas­sage pro­ce­dures can be start­ed from the age of 13 under adult super­vi­sion. When choos­ing the type and inten­si­ty of expo­sure, the com­plex­ion and state of health of the child are tak­en into account. In any case, before start­ing a mas­sage, you should con­sult with an ortho­pe­dic doc­tor. If the child was rec­om­mend­ed a reg­u­lar mas­sage, then a light mas­sage effect in the chair will not harm him.

Can I sit in a massage chair during pregnancy?

- Every­thing is pure­ly indi­vid­ual here, but, in gen­er­al, it is not rec­om­mend­ed. We advise you to con­sult a doc­tor, and he will tell you what is pos­si­ble and what is not.
