YOUR GUIDE TO CHOOSING The Right Massage Chair

So you have come up with the idea of buying a massage chair, now what? Shopping for a massage chair can be a very daunting experience particularly if you haven’t done your research. There are a lot of brands out there and each one looks as inviting as the next one but let me stop you right there because that is where the similarity stops.

First of all think about why you need a massage chair? I tell my customers that it’s a bit like buying a car, you can have your economy version that is built to get you from A to B at a budget price OR you can have the luxury version with all the bells and whistles. The choice is yours.

I find that when a customer comes to me in search of a massage chair they are usually trying to solve a problem. What problem you may ask? The primary problem is usually pain or injury. Second to that is often relaxation and stress relief. Last of all it’s a time or cost saving purchase. You may be asking how does buying a massage chair save me time or money? It’s simple, for those who work long hours, have labour intensive jobs, are highly physical in regards to sport and recreation then a massage chair in their home is definitely both time saving and cost effective.

So where to now? Ok let’s get to the good bits. First of all who is going to be using the chair? Is it just you or are there others to be considered too such as partners, children etc? The reason I ask this question is that not every chair will suit every person. Massage chairs come in different sizes, shapes, and have a variety of options including built in technology so to ensure the correct fit we need to consider a few very important points:

  • What is the average height/weight of the potential users? Some massage chairs can only accommodate certain heights and weights. Exceeding the limits of a massage chair can basically render a massage as pointless as it is either uncomfortable or ineffective.
  • What is the age range of the main user/s? Why is age important you may ask? Simple, the main user/s need to able to use the chair confidently. Technology such as voice control and blue tooth can be daunting for some so with this in mind those that aren’t tech savvy may prefer a simple to operate and navigate controller.

  • What problem/s does the massage chair need to solve? Is it pain or injury management which indicates the need for inbuilt heat, pressure point therapy and a range of programmes to adjust to your needs. Is it stress relief and relaxation? With features such as inbuilt meditation programmes, relaxation sounds and customisable massage programmes you can feel your stress fade away as you relax in your massage chair. Feel Good Massage Chairs has a wide selection of chairs to suit any or all of these problems.

So at this point customers are usually contemplating between at least 1 or 2 massage chair models and now it is time to get down to the nitty gritty. What do you get for your money?

Value for money has never been more important than in our current climate. With the constant changes in work and lifestyle the last thing Feel Good Massage Chairs wants to do is add to your stress.

After 26 years in business we have heard all sorts of horror stories and each of those tends to lend itself to saving money which after a period of time actually costs money. An important rule of thumb is to look at the total package. What do you really get for your money? Your customer journey should never end with your retailer as long as you own your massage chair hence the value of after sales service is often overlooked. What good is a massage chair that doesn’t work? Too often we get calls from frustrated customers who have purchased a massage chair online and now cannot contact the retailer for repairs or warranty claims. Feel Good Massage Chairs takes great pride in our customer service. Your customer journey starts BEFORE you even purchase a chair and extends to the life of the chair. In fact, many of our customers are returning customers so that must say something about Feel Good!
