So you’ve decided to purchase a massage chair; what next? Buying a massage chair can be a daunting experience, especially if you haven’t done your homework. There are many brands out there, and each one appears to be as appealing as the next, but let me stop you right there because that is where the similarity ends.
First, consider why you require a massage chair. I tell my customers that it’s like buying a car: you can have the economy version, which is designed to get you from point A to point B at a low cost, or you can have the luxury version, which has all the bells and whistles. You have a choice.
When a customer comes to me looking for a massage chair, I find that they are usually trying to solve a problem. What is the issue, you might ask? The main issue is usually pain or injury.
The second most common reason is relaxation and stress relief. Finally, it is a time or money-saving purchase. You may be wondering how purchasing a massage chair will save you time or money. It’s simple: for those who work long hours, have physically demanding jobs, or participate in sports and recreation, having a massage chair in their home saves time and money.
So, where do we go from here? Massage chairs come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and options, including built-in technology, so to ensure the proper fit, we must consider a few critical points:
1. Techniques and Programs
Shiatsu, Swedish, deep tissue, and other techniques are available in various massage chairs. Look for chairs that offer a variety of programs, adjustable intensity levels, and the ability to target specific body areas.
2. Body Scanner Technology
Body scan technology is used in advanced massage chairs to tailor the massage experience to your specific body shape and size. This ensures that the massage rollers and airbags target the correct areas, maximising the massage’s effectiveness.
3. Massage Chair Dimensions and Design
Consider the massage chair’s dimensions to ensure that it will fit comfortably in your home. Consider reclining angles, footrest extensions, and overall aesthetic appeal to ensure it blends seamlessly with your home decor.
4. Material Durability and Quality
For increased durability and longevity, choose massage chairs made of high-quality materials such as genuine leather or premium synthetic leather. The upholstery should be comfortable, easy to clean, and long-lasting.
5. Simple Controls and Connectivity
Look for massage chairs with simple controls, preferably with a user-friendly interface and simple presets. Some massage chairs may also include connectivity features such as Bluetooth or USB ports for added convenience and entertainment during massage sessions.
6. Positioning in Zero Gravity
The zero gravity position distributes your body weight evenly, reducing pressure on the spine and improving the massage experience. This feature simulates weightlessness and allows for deeper relaxation.
7. Heat - Therapy
Heat therapy in massage chairs relieves muscle tension, improves blood circulation, and improves the overall massage experience. For maximum comfort, look for chairs with adjustable heat settings and targeted heat zones.
8. Foot Massage and Air Compression
Airbags are commonly used in massage chairs to provide compression massage and reflexology techniques. Consider chairs that cover the arms, legs, and feet completely, ensuring a full-body relaxation experience.
After two decades in business, we’ve heard all kinds of horror stories, and each of them lends itself to saving money, which over time actually costs money. A good rule of thumb is to consider the whole picture. What exactly do you get for your money? Because your customer journey should not end with your retailer as long as you own your massage chair, the importance of after-sales service is frequently overlooked. What use is a massage chair if it does not work? We receive far too many calls from dissatisfied customers who purchased a massage chair online and are now unable to contact the retailer for repairs or warranty claims.
V-Revive Massage Chairs takes great pride in providing excellent customer service. Your customer journey begins BEFORE you buy a chair and continues throughout its lifespan. In fact, many of our customers return, which must say something about V-Revive!
