The massage recliner appeared in Japan several decades ago. It has many advantages and offers similar benefits to the manual massage of a professional therapist.

The massage recliner is a classic relaxation chair, but with an additional function: it has a mechanism integrated in its backrest that makes it an excellent complement to the massages that a therapist would do...

Other functions of the recliner include: the recliner, the heated recliner, the swivel recliner or the integrated or independent footrest.

Premier massage chair mechanism

Massage chairs differ from ordinary chairs in their massaging and relaxing functions. It is the massage device that you should buy for a wellness session at home. It is sold in specialized shops and via online sales sites.

The operating principle of a massage chair is based on the controlled vibrations of several air cushions in order to reproduce movements similar to those provided by a real masseur: percussion, kneading, friction, effleurage...

Massage recliner: high technology

The relaxing massage chair is equipped, in the chair or on the surface, with an electrical device that gives the illusion to the person sitting in the chair that he or she is being massaged by a professional....

This device is made up of:

  1. one or more motors
  2. of massage rollers

All the parameters can be precisely adjusted...

The engines of this relaxation chair

The choice of the number of engines for your massage recliner will depend on the range and functions offered (back or legs only, speed adjustment, etc.).

Number of engines

It is best to choose a relaxing massage chair with several engines: thanks to this, the chair can implement several massage functions at the same time for therapeutic results.

  2. others allow a real customized massage thanks to a more complex device

Massage chair, massage seat or massage office chair?

Massage chairs are a device whose purchase is not within everyone's reach. To save your budget, you can buy a massage seat for a quarter of the price of a massage chair.

A massage seat is a kind of seat cover that you can spread on an ordinary chair. The most recommended is the shiatsu massage chair, but there is also the massage desk chair, recommended to relax sedentary employees.

Premier massage chair: how to make the right choice?

The choice of a massage chair must be based on technical aspects:

  1. The types of existing functions.
  2. The types of massage performed.
  3. Noise emission or silent mode during use (which may reduce the expected effect of massage, which is relaxation).

Choosing the right massage rollers

The most sophisticated massage recliners are equipped with several massage rollers. For most types, there are 4 rollers. There may be more.

Thanks to this, the user can benefit from massages that simulate the techniques of kneading, percussion, stretching, compression or shiatsu. 

For quality massages, prefer rollers:

  1. of significant size
  2. designed in materials that can easily adapt to the body shape
  3. flexible (back, neck, neck...)

It is important to try the massage recliner to choose the one that suits you best.

The settings of the massage recliner

The massage recliner's parameters can be adjusted very precisely to perfectly adapt to the needs of its user:

  1. size adjustment: for a good height of the massage rollers and effective movements on the neck, back and shoulders... .
  2. intensity adjustment (rare, only top of the range): you can also add a removable backrest if the massages remain too strong or an air bag that inflates around the roller system
  3. massage speed adjustment

Some massage recliners also have other functions, such as the heated recliner.
