Buying a Massage Chair Can Save You Money!
That’s right! It might be hard to believe, but if you’re not going for a massage every week, or every two weeks, then you’d be surprised at how costly massages are becoming.
For an hour massage, people pay around $70 – $80! Let’s assume that an average one hour massage is $75, let’s have a look and see how much people are paying per year, based on how often they go!
Breakdown of Yearly Massage Cost: (1 hour massage)
Go for a massage weekly: $3,900
Go for a massage once every 2 weeks: $1,950
Go for a massage once a month: $975
From this, it’s clear that if you’re someone that’s going for a massage weekly, or once every two weeks, then a massage chair can be beneficial.
When you buy a massage chair, you’re definitely going to want to buy one that will last 5-6 years. Our OGAWA massage chairs all live up to that livespan, so we can use that as a reference.
With these costs over 5 years, let’s compare some of the prices of massages to some prices of the massage chairs we have!
Going for Massages over 5 Years:
Go for a massage weekly: $19,500
Go for a massage once every 2 weeks: $9,750
Go for a massage once a month: $4,875
OGAWA Master Drive AI: $12,500
OGAWA Master Drive Plus: $9,500
OGAWA Smart Reluxe: $4,600
When we look at it from this angle, we actually see that massage chairs are more cost effective than massages in the long term! For these, we’re only assuming that you’re getting one hour of massages.
But when you have a massage chair in your home, you’re going to get this massage daily, for at least half an hour.
Conclusion: Massage Chairs Are Very Worth the Investment!
With that number crunching above, I hope this helps shed some light on how a massage chair becomes more cost effective over time. Outside of cost, there’s so many other reasons why you would want a massage chair!
It’s convenient, it’s not bound by time, and it’s cost effective!
You get everything you need, all in your home, without the extra worry of needing to find time, find an appointment, or find a place to go to when you’re in pain.
Next time you need the relaxation you need, why not consider a massage chair?
