Wouldn’t it be nice to come home to a massage after a long day at work? These chairs aren’t the cheapest, but as Tom and Donna from Parks and Recreation would say, “Treat yo’ self.” It may be a larger upfront cost but when you think about it, the average cost of a massage is $60/hour so that can add up fast, especially once you add in the cost of gas! You probably aren’t treating yourself to these daily at that price, but you could be if you had your own massage chair.

Best Massage Chair Reviews

Some of the companies we reviewed offer multiple chairs so to lessen the confusion, we tried to choose the model that we thought was the most popular. We then chose the top four that we thought were best based on price, quality, massage comfort and techniques.

Read our massage chair reviews below to see which one will have you relaxing in no time (or literally tomorrow with those offering Amazon Prime shipping)!

Osaki Review

OS-4000 Zero Gravity Heated Reclining Massage Chair#2

View on Amazon

Osaki offers various models, all specializing in different things. For this review, we focused on the Osaki OS-4000 Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair which came in 2nd place for best massage chair. This chair works on nearly every part of your body. It uses vibration, air massage, rolling and heat therapy to relax your body. This chair is very large, which is not uncommon for most massage chairs but know that you will need more space than a typical recliner would need.

Pros

Cons

  • Foot roller
  • Air massage for hips and shoulders
  • Vibration seat
  • Massages many areas: shoulders, side, arms, hands, low back, neck, hips, calves and feet
  • Heat therapy on lower back
  • Comfortable
  • Takes up a lot of space
  • Prone to electric surges (to prevent this get a surge protector)
  • Chair is shipped unassembled and is heavy, so you’ll want a friend or two to help you with it
  • Expensive relative to our top pick

T&D Enterprises

BT-7672-MASSAGE-BK-GG#3

View on Amazon

T & D Enterprises’ BT-7672-MASSAGE-BK-GG Massaging Black Leather Recliner and Ottoman is another one of Amazon’s best-selling chairs. It focuses on 4 zones: upper back, lower back, thighs and calves. So if you’re looking for a cheaper product with fewer features but still more than a regular lounge chair this is a good option.

Pros

Cons

  • Vibration and heat functions
  • Swivels and reclines
  • Comfortable
  • Affordable price
  • No shiatsu/rolling
  • Does not rock like a rocking chair

Comfort Products

This chair has an ottoman to work the calves. It’s very similar to the one offered by T&D Enterprises.

I’ve been experiencing MAJOR neck and back pain recently from my desk chair. Since I spend most of my day sitting in an office where I can’t use one of these chairs, coming home to get a massage from one of these I think is a very worthwhile investment. And will pay for itself in the amount of money I’ll save at the chiropractor!
