Things I Disliked
- The Zero Gravity Full-Body Kahuna Massage Chair Recliner LM6800 comes unassembled and can be an arduous task to fully set it up unless delivery is made by White Glove Services. White Glove Services take responsibility for assembling the product for their deliveries.
- The manufacturers give limited warranty for three years instead of premium warranty.
- This particular massage chair is not suitable for comparatively taller individuals above the 6’2 mark.
- Even with extra padding by manufacturers, the foot massage can be considered as being aggressively intense; therefore, additional padding is needed to avoid discomfort.
The Zero Gravity Full-Body Kahuna Massage Chair Recliner LM6800 costs a total of $2,099.99 With a very high number of advanced essential key features integrated within, it is worth buying for individuals that do not surpass the 6’2 height limit.
The standard of massage being delivered to users above the 6’2 height frame may differ due to the absence of a body scanning system embedded within the massaging chair.
Also, I would only highly recommend the Zero Gravity Full-Body Kahuna Massage Chair Recliner LM6800 to those that enjoy a rather strong and intense massage experience, for those that give preference to subtle massages may require additional padding
