Merax Massage Chair Review 2019

Purchasing a massage chair can be a big decision for many, particularly those that do not have the luxury of affording one which costs above the $1000 price mark.

Prospective massage chair buyers, when investing money, do have a pre-set number of expectations either about receiving optimal recovery or relaxation.

For those with a relatively lower price budget, the task of locating the ideal massage chair is made all the more difficult due to a relatively limited number of options available within the massage chair market. The Merax Massage Chair Recliner is among the group of massage chairs which can cater prospective buyers on a comparatively small budget. Mentioned below are just several of the main components of the Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by Merax:

Main Features of the Merax Massage Chair

1 - A Total of 8 Massage Concentration Points

The purpose of massage focus points is to be able to provide higher levels of massage motions on strategically placed locations inside of the chair. Such nodes or concentration points help with neutralizing any negative energy or strain being placed within the body of the user specifically surrounding the areas around the focus points.

Each massage concentration node out of the total of eight is positioned around the neck, the lower back area or for providing relief to the upper back of the user.

2 - Airbag Massage Technology

Airbag massage technology is the most commonly found form of massage motions integrated within massage chairs regardless of whether they cost $500 or $5000. The Merax Massage Chair Recliner consists of a total of 25 airbags, manufactured within it to be able to provide a vast massage area coverage to users.

The airbags are designed and located to provide comfort, recovery as well as rejuvenation to key body parts of users, such as the legs, feet, shoulders as well as the arms for the purpose of receiving optimal results.

3 - Varying Levels of Massage Intensity

Massage intensity within each massage program can manually be set by users to achieve their desired objective best. A sheer total of five different massage intensity setting is available for users of the Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by Merax. Such varying massage intensities, as a result, enhance the quality of the Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner, by allowing users to customize each massage program manually.

4 - Manual Massage Programs

Any to every massage chair which consists of not only varying massage intensities which can manually be controlled but also, different manual massage programs, can be considered as among the highly recommended massage chairs within the market.

Users do not always prefer being delivered massage experiences which are preset which is why, the ability to manually create a specially customized massage program is categorized as being an essential feature within all massage chairs.

The Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by Merax allows users to be able to choose from between two different massage motions, each of which is specialized to mimic movement techniques used by professional massage therapists. Kneading massage motions towards the outwards direction is one of them, which intends to provide enhanced levels of massage movement. The second option is that of kneading massage motions inwards, which work towards delivering a relatively subtle massage.

5 - The Ability to Recline

The Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by Merax also consists of the capacity to be able to recline; therefore, position users in a stance much similar to zero-gravity.

Such a position aids significantly with lifting any additional strain that might be placed on the spinal cord of users. Elimination of negative energy and unnecessary stress on the back can lead to not only a better posture but also increased levels of blood circulation leading to higher levels of Endorphins within the body. A reclining position; thus, can be of great help with users looking to utilize the Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner primarily for physical and psychological recovery.

6 - Advanced Roller Technology

Just like airbags, rollers technology is also employed as a form of delivering massage in most massage chairs present within the market. The Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by Merax; however, takes the technology a little further by integrating a body scanning system merged into the rollers. Via such advanced technology, the rollers embedded within can best adjust their circular motions under the body frame of each user.

The body scanning feature of this particular massage chair greatly influences its value among the market, especially when placed in consideration with its economical price.

Pros and Cons of Merax Massage Chairs

Things We Liked

  • The massage chair comes with a highly user-friendly LCD control for enhanced user convenience.
  • The chair has roller wheels placed at the bottom so that the massage chair can be moved about with relative ease.
  • The product itself weighs only 139 pounds while it can accommodate a sheer weight total of 660 pounds.

Things We Disliked

  • The leg rest of the massage chair can not manually and separately, be adjusted when the Shiatsu Massage Chair is in a reclined position.
  • The massage chair is delivered unassembled.
  • The Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner lacks an integrated heating system located in the lower-back section.


I highly recommend the Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by Merax not solely due to its economical price range, but also due to an efficient massaging system which is greatly suitable for recovery as well as relaxation. As mentioned in a number of previous reviews, my personal preference lies within massages which are relatively higher in intensity and stronger in motion, which is exactly what the Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner by Merax is able to deliver.

An automatic body scanning system via advanced massage rollers is a bonus for a chair of such a low price range; therefore, should be considered by prospective buyers.
