Massage chairs definitely cost a hefty amount, there’s no denying it. However, can the cliché “Your health is priceless” be used here?

When it comes to taking care of your health, there are many methods you can choose from, and each has a price attached to it.

So what makes massage chairs so expensive? Do they really provide the relaxation and health benefits worthy of the price tag?

In this blog, I’m going to discuss these in depth, and help you decide whether massage chairs are expensive, or a worth while investment.

TLDR: Massage chairs have a high cost because they essentially replace the role of 2-3 masseuses, which is available at home any time you want it. You also pay for the convenience, and control of your massage, which you can cater just to your needs.

There’s still more to discuss, so keep reading below as I begin discussing the first point.

Massage Chairs Bring the Same Health Benefits of Massage

Are you someone that likes going for a massage?
If you’ve gone for a massage, then you’re probably aware of how nice it makes you feel, and how relaxed you feel afterwards. The best part of massages, and the greatest benefit that you get from a massage is the loosened muscles, the peace of mind, and the increase in serotonin and blood flow around the body.

These all pass into the massage chair as well. However, you can get even more benefit knowing that this is available all at home! You don’t need to leave the house to get the massage you need, or the relaxation you desire.

Many people go for a massage to help relieve them of pains or help reduce the symptoms of underlying conditions such as sciatica, all which a massage chair can easily replicate.

I’ve actually already written a blog about how a massage chair can bring home the benefits of a massage, so if you want to learn more about that, just click on that link here.

When we compare massages to a massage chair, we’ll find that they’re very similar. Thus, one way to look at the cost of a massage chair is by looking at the total cost of all the massages you could want, at home at any time. It also includes the cost of the health benefits you’ll be getting, meaning no more physio or chiropractor costs, and no extra supplements or medicine for pain!

Massage Chairs Combine the Best Masseuse Wisdom in the Massage Styles

When you get a massage chair, it’s like getting 2-3 masseuses in one machine. Firstly, imagine having your back, arms and feet massaged at the same time. There’s no way one person alone could do all of that at the same time!

With so many modes available in the massage chair, such as different massage styles, it’s almost like having someone else and give you a massage. The experience continually grows!

One concrete example that I can give you is how the circulation mode on our Master Drive Plus massage chair can massage your legs, back and arms all at the same time.

We have a testimonial from Shannon, who likens having a massage in the massage chair to going and seeing many masseuse therapists! If you want to see that, then just click on the video below!

Massage Chairs Give You the Exact Massage You Need

The best part of a massage chair?

Having the exact massage you need!

When you have a massage chair, there’s just so many ways to use it! One thing I like to tell anyone that considers a massage chair is how many massage styles you can get out of it. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Kneading
  • Swedish
  • Shiatsu
  • Tapping
  • Rubbing
  • Rolling
  • Pinching

Massage chairs are so innovative in the way the rollers press against you, and work their way into your back. When you compare massage chair models, especially the 4D massage rollers, you’ll find that they’re able to do so much to press and poke into your body to get that perfect massage.

I’ve even written a whole blog on this very topic to help break it down much further! If you want to know how a massage chair can massage you, then definitely give it a read.

So how much would you think a masseuse who can do the exact massage you need would cost?

Probably a lot!

Conclusion: Massage Chairs Are the Consolidation of All Massages

When you get a massage chair, remember that you’re getting many years of massages all in one! No matter what style you want, or what pressure you need, a massage chair can give you all of that in one machine!

If you’re someone that doesn’t need a massage often, then something like a massage chair might not be recommended, but if you do need it, then buying a massage chair is definitely an investment you won’t regret.
