Full Body Massage Chair – I have written other reviews that cover the full body massage chair. However, I have yet to write about the “Budget Massage Chair”. First of all, I only write reviews on products that I know work well and produce results. In addition, my curating process is based on a specific set of criteria that’s focused on saving you time and money.
If I know a product is a waste of time and money? I will not write a review on it. Why waste your time, and mine by reviewing it if it’s useless? I do list affiliate links where if you make a purchase I will make a small percentage of the sale. This will not affect the price at all and you will still get the lowest price available. Yes, the sales do help to pay for this website and I really appreciate it!
But selling something I would not otherwise purchase myself just to make a sale is not what Back Pain Remedies is about. Having you get the information you are looking for is what Back Pain Remedies is about. Regardless, if you purchase a product or not.
What is a Full Body Massage Chair?
A full body massage chair will massage your entire body from top to bottom. However, not all full body massage chairs are the same. But I do understand everyone has a budget and you can only afford what you can.
Comparing Massage Chairs
If you are looking for a full body massage chair and you are looking for something that’s on the cheaper end? The Real Relax Massage Chairs are the best for a lower budget massage chair. In particular, their “Favor” series. Once you sit down in a Real Relax Favor Massage Chair, you will be instantly sold! This isn’t just my opinion but the opinion of several people who have purchased a real relax favor series massage chair.
They do come with the product standard 1-year warranty. I will tell you what I tell everyone, no matter what product you purchase. When you get it, use the sh^%! out of it! Why? If there are any factory defects or any bugs, you want them to show their ugly faces right away. Ideally, the last thing you want to have to do is deal with sending back a massage chair. But it’s better to get it out of the way right away and while it’s under warranty.
Full Body Massage Chair Thoughts?
Just keep in mind these chairs are not the same quality and do not have some of the features the mid to upper range massage chairs will have. Some of the same features they do have the mid to upper range massage chairs have done a better job perfecting them. I have used some of the best massage chairs along with the worst. The Real Relax Massage Chairs do a good job considering the price tag.
Favor-01 Full Body Massage Chair
( Skip to Price )
This is the Favor-01 which is inexpensive. It is limited compared to other massage chairs but does get the job done. If you want a bargain-priced chair, this is the one for you. The Real Relax Favor-01 Shiatsu Massage Chair will have you feeling relaxed in no time.
Real Relax Favor Series full body massage chair has four models and this is the Favor-01 the base model. It comes in a sleek and smart design. Looking very stylish, it comes in three different colors making it possible to blend into any room without sticking out, looking out of place. Those colors are black, khaki, and burgundy.
I must warn you, you may become addicted to this chair as it’s been known to put people in deeply relaxed states. The health benefits you get from a massage are well known and documented. A full body massage chair aims to provide the same level of benefits you would get from a session from a massage therapist. The fact of the matter is that technology has progressed to the point where massage chairs are now quite impressive.
The Full Wrap Shoulder Massage Airbag: It has four airbags that will move around your shoulder area and compress it, providing an intense massage. One big plus about this chair compared to others is you do not see isolated external massage airbags around the shoulder area. Your neck is also being treated at the same time and there is a function that specifically focuses on that area delivering a great neck massage.
Soothing Backrest Massage: There are 8 points inside the backrest that work to deliver a perfect restful shiatsu massage. The Shiatsu massage is a technique and art form that comes from Japan. It literally means finger or thumb pressure. If you would like more in-depth information about Shiatsu? I talk about it in this post that I wrote on Shiatsu Massage Chairs.
The purpose of the Shiatsu massage is to apply pressure on thumbs, fingers, and palms to certain areas on your body to help heal anything internally. That could be anything from tightened muscles to diseases. Once you experience a shiatsu massage session with this chair, you will definitely feel much better.
Foot and Leg Massage: There are full leg wrap airbags that cover a wide area and deliver a tranquil massage to your legs and feet. They also have rollers that are placed under the feet area to give you a complete foot massage.
Hip Massage Airbags: Very similar to the shoulder area, the hips are encompassed by a set of external massage pads that move along squishing and stimulating your hips and lower waist area. There is also a heater that is built-in inside the seat. Once you combine the massage and the heat it makes for a very relaxing experience.
Smart Control Remote: It has an intuitive LED remote control that enables you to control many of the functions. You can even choose the intensity level and speed, zone or mode.
Zero Gravity: As with the majority of the Real Relax massage chairs and most modern massage chairs, this model allows you to recline to the utmost relaxing position which is zero gravity. At this point, the pressure has been relieved from your spine. Having a massage chair with the zero gravity feature is definitely a must-have if you have any back problems.
