It is very uncommon for massage chairs to be available under the one grand price tag. Therefore, when prospective buyers come across those that are more towards the economical price range, they tend to jump into purchasing them immediately.
Caution, however, needs to be taken regardless of how appealing the price of a massage chair may seem to be, a thorough look should be taken into the core features a massage chair may possess to ensure optimum results.
One such massage chair which belongs from the lower price ranges of the massage chair market is The Electric Full Body Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by BestMassage. Costing a total of $759.55, The Electric Full Body Shiatsu Massage Chair is an eye catcher.
Main Features of Electric Full Body Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner
Four Different Automatic Massage Programs
Automatically pre-set massage programs are an essential feature in just about all the massage chairs that are available in the market. Each program consists of varying levels of intensity as well as massage motion. The EC-06C Massage chair (The Electric Full Body Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner) has a total of four different massage settings.
Each massage program of the EC-06C by BestMassage is specially designed to achieve an optimum level of not only relaxation and refreshment but also to support extended recovery sessions of the user.
Airbags and High Power Vibration Technology
The EC-06C has an estimated total of 30 inbuilt airbags to ensure that the highest level of comfort is achieved. The air-bag massage technology of the EC-06C has been manufactured to work flawlessly in a harmonious pattern under the massage program.
Out of the estimated 30 built-in air-bags of the EC-06C, 20 are placed towards the lower body of the massage chair to make sure that no body part of the user is left unaffected by the massage session. The airbags located in the bottom half of the massage chair target human body areas such as the feet, thighs and the entire legs for the principal purpose of increasing circulation thus, eliminating any tension points in the user’s body.
Alongside the Airbags, an inbuilt, intensely powered vibration system is also utilized to enhance further the level of effectiveness of the EC-06C Massage Chair targeting the lower area of the user.
Advanced Roller System
A majority of massage chairs in the market these days are not 100% filled with built-in air-bags for massaging purposes, and therefore, rollers are integrated within the seat to enhance the soothing effects further. A roller system pertains to an electronic mechanism of a set of rollers which when turned on, move in a vertical motion starting from the neck, down to the spine and the buttocks of the user.
The rollers massaging program manufactured within the EC-06C can be considered as being a step further taken towards the advancement of this technology. What differentiates the roller system technique of the EC-06C is that the rollers are automatically able to contour their motion following the body width and height of the user.
It is highly uncommon for massage chairs of the same price range as that of The EC-06C to also feature an automatic body scan. Therefore, The Advanced Roller System of this particular massage chair is impressive.
Massage Heads Targeting the Neck
In attempts to mimic the full professional massage therapy experience for their customers, BestMassage manufactured The EC-06C Massage Chair with uniquely situated massage heads. The massage heads are specially designed to target the ‘Tsubo points’ within the neck of a human body in attempts to effectively eradicate or lift any stress related energy trapped within.
The area surrounding the tailbone is also among the targets of the massage heads of The EC-06C to be able to relieve the body entirely.
User-Friendly Control Panel
Since massage chairs are not confined to be used by a single person, it is important for them to be able to contain user-friendly features which, can easily be used by varying users. Another prominent feature of the EC-06C Massage Chair is that it is highly user-friendly, with a built-in control screen of a self-explanatory nature for users.
Built-in Heat Transmitter
The EC-06C Massage Chair manufactured by BestMassage consists of another advantage of an integrated heat transmitter. The utilization of heat during any massage session has been known to improve better the absorption of the effect of vibrators merged with air-bags and rollers into the body of the user. Therefore, can be considered as an essential feature.
Pros and Cons of Electric Full Body Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner
Things I Liked
- Available in a total of three different colors; black, brown, and red.
- It consists of Kneading-massage effect for optimum rejuvenation and recovery.
- Contains an extendable foot-rest for users that are comparatively taller.
- Air-bag massage technology built into the armrest.
- Manufactured with high-quality Leather.
- One-year warranty.
Things I Disliked
- Since the EC-06C Massaging Chair weighs a significant amount, additional two men are required to bring the massaging chair into the desired place inside the house.
- BestMassage only gives limited 1-year warranty, therefore, for repairing, the user is required to pay for shipment of the massage chair back to its manufacturers.
- No option for customizing personal massage programs.
- Lacks the availability of a USB port/ Bluetooth connection or speakers for listening to songs etc.
For those of whom, do not seem to have any complaints regarding the policy of limited 1-year warranty provided by BestMassagers, then the EC-06C Massaging Chair would be the perfect fit. However, it is best advised to purchase massaging chairs which come along with a premium warranty. The initial price of sending back the massaging chair to the manufacturers for repairs can cost between $300-$700 depending on the area where the user may be residing.
Although the price of the Electric Full Body Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by BestMassage may seem very appealing, however, the cons of this particular product must be considered thoroughly.
