Best Types of Massage Chairs for Relaxation

The right chair for you exists, but there are many types of chairs for relaxation. If you’re unsure of which chair is best for you, consider the following:

  • Recliners are a traditional choice, and they simply recline back.
  • Zero gravity chairs are designed to take pressure off your back and legs in a neutral-posture position.
  • Full body massage chairs cradle the entire body and provide excellent pain relief. A full-body option is recommended if you want a chair closest to an authentic massage.
  • Shiatsu massage chairs are more of a type of massage that replicates this popular Japanese massage. Shiatsu massage can also be provided in combination with the other chair types mentioned above.

Features To Look For In A Massage Chair To Maximize Relaxation

If you’re looking to maximize your relaxation with a massage chair, there are a few things to consider when making your purchase:

  • Type of chair (as covered in the last section)
  • Shape, or size, that fits in your space (be sure to check the rear clearance listed!)
  • Zero gravity options
  • Heat setting to melt stress away
  • Massage presets
  • Foot, calf and even thigh massages
  • Weight and height limits

You want to pay special attention to the height and weight limitations of the chair you purchase. If you’re too tall or larger in size, it’s crucial to find out if the chair you’re considering can accommodate your size.
