Best Massage Chairs of 2021

Best Massage Chairs of 2021

Last year had more than its fair share of stress, but there have been a few silver linings.  Our favorite, of course, is the emphasis on self care.  Finding ways of easing stress and tension is an absolute must to hold onto the strands of sanity keeping us together.

Thankfully, our favorite suppliers have been hard at work, designing new chairs and improving on others. If this is your first foray into massage chair research, here are some of the terms you will see and what they mean.  You can also check out our Ultimate Massage Chair Buyer's Guide here.

Features

Zero Gravity

The zero gravity position allows the body to assume a position of weightlessness thus dramatically reducing tension in the spine and back creating a feeling of weightlessness.  The knees are typically raised to at least heart level with a 30 degree angle at the spine. 

S-Track Chair | L-Track | SL-Track 

Which type of “Track” is best suited for you?  This can be a very confusing question for some of our customers. The best way to think of this is—how far do you want the massage rollers to go? S-track chairs follow the curvature of the spine and typically end at the bottom of the spine while L-track rollers will continue down below the back and curve in an L-shape massaging into your gluteal muscles and hamstrings. 

2D | 3D | 4D Roller Technology

2D 3D 4D Massage Chairs

Perhaps one of the most important advancements to the industry is the 3D roller.  2D rollers move back and forth along the X-Y plane (back and forth + up and down) while the 3D roller actually protrudes into the body from 2.2 inches to 5 inches closely mimicking the feel of human hands.

Body Scan

All 3D chairs come equipped with a full body scan which serves to optimize the roller in order to detect acupoints along the neck and back to fully customize and improve the overall massage experience.  The best massage chairs available today offer features that allow you to save multiple user profiles so that the body scan can be saved into memory and you can get right to the massage without waiting for the chair to complete a scan before each use.  Almost all of our chairs now come with the Body Scan Function.

Air Compression Massage

You will find that most chairs in the market have some type of air compression included in the massage chair.  Air compression gently (or tightly) squeezes the body in different areas to provide pressure and relief to many parts of the body.  When coupled with the rollers, the airbags really intensify the overall massage experience and also serve to hold the body in place.  Next generation airbags require less airbags to handle the same surface area as well as decrease the amount of sound and moving parts in the chair.  Now, there are even kneading airbags which closely mimic the feel of rollers in areas such as the calves.

Typically, there are airbags in the:

  • Shoulders
  • Torso
  • Arms (oftentimes including the bicep/tricep area as well as the forearms)
  • Hands and wrists
  • Hips
  • Legs
  • Calves
  • Feet

The better the chair, the more air bags and motors within to control the air pressure.  Some chairs even include calf rollers and foot rollers to reach those special acupressure and reflexology points.  Our chairs have anywhere from 4 airbags for our most basic chairs to 100 for our most advanced chair.  Not all air compression systems are created equal!  If this is important to you, please give us a call so that we can help you make the best choice possible.

Calf and Foot Rollers

Foot rollers are different from air compression within the calf and foot region.  Only the premium massage chairs include foot rollers while very few include calf rollers and/or a calf acupressure ball integrated within the airbag system.  We currently carry a couple of models with the calf roller option. 

If you’ve sat in “newer” massage chairs, you probably noticed that while the squeezing feels quite good, rollers could make the experience even better.  Foot rollers coupled with a complete body scan help the massage chair to truly deliver healing reflexology which is an amazing health benefit.

Heat Therapy 

It’s no secret that heat can help to loosen sore muscles and promote blood-flow which makes it a logical addition to any good chair.  As the muscles warm up, the tissue will loosen and allow the massage chair to provide a better, more therapeutic massage. 

Many massage chairs come with a lumbar heat option and a few premium chairs feature heat in the foot, calves, seat and arm regions.  We even have a chair with "blanket heat" that wraps around your chest.  In the last year, many new chairs have offered an extended heat option to the lumbar, feet, calves and seat region.  We also now have several chairs with heated 3D and 4D rollers. 

Who will be using the chair?

If you have unique height or size requirements, it’s important to take that into account.  Not all chairs comfortably accommodate the very tall person (over 6’4”) or the very short person (below 5’); or the very large person.  Almost all chairs on the market work well for people between 5’ – 6’ tall, but if you have a very tall person and a very short person in the house, you'll really need to consider which model will work best. 

We also have chairs that work better for the Big / Tall sector as well as those that have more generous weight requirements.  Truth be told, most of our chairs will work for people up to 300 pounds even if it's rated at 250-265 pounds.  That being said, we do have a few models that have extra-fortified motors and mechanisms made to withstand a higher weight on a regular basis.

OHCO M.8 Massage Chair

The proprietary Sens8™ 4D rollers are at the core of the OHCO M.8 massage chair. The 4D engine of the OHCO M.8 provides all the basic movements you've come to expect like tapping, kneading, rolling, and combinations, but also advanced massage algorithms to mimic the feel of human hands. The M.8 precisely manages speed from fast to our proprietary UltraSlow movements which allow a truly therapeutic touch when and where you need it most. Rapid acceleration and deceleration of motor speeds create patterns of movement that feel just like your best therapist. Other software design elements add nuance, complexity, and range to the movements of the DeltaWave engine. These engineered elements are perfectly blended to provide an experience that’s maximally therapeutic and deeply relaxing.

The OHCO M.8 is also on our lists for Best Premium and Best Japanese Massage Chairs.
