How Much Is a Massage Chair and Is It Worth the Investment?

A massage chair is a big investment, but is definitely worth it for your comfort and relaxation. So, how much is a massage chair?

A high-end massage chair with more options, features and massage styles will cost you somewhere between $6,000 and $10,000, with some even costing upwards of$15,000.

In this article, OSIM explains why a massage chair is worth the money and why you would need one.

Is a Massage Chair Worth It? 

Consider this: a 60-minute massage from a masseuse can cost between $55 and $110 per session. This will depend on where you reside and the type of massage you get. Other factors that can affect the price include the duration and frequency of your sessions. And if your masseuse is a smooth salesperson, they may even persuade you to add other special treatments like a hot stone massage. 

If, for example, you get a massage every week at $80, you’ll be spending $320 every month. That’s nearly $17,000 a year that you spend on massages. Not to mention the hassle of booking your favourite therapist, or the added cost of commuting to their place of work, if they don’t do at-home services.

When you invest in a massage chair, it’s as if you have a massage therapist who’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year. Your massage chair is ready for you even on weekends or at midnight.

And going to your massage chair costs you nothing in terms of time spent travelling and putting gas in your car. Because of these savings, your massage chair becomes an even better investment.

Remember that consistency is important when it comes to massages. Most massage therapists believe that getting a massage two to three times a week is the best way to get the most out of relaxing massages. But this is not viable for most people, especially if you have to shell out nearly $100 every week.

But if you invest in a massage chair like our uLove 2 Massage Chair, you can get a massage anytime, any day and for however long you choose. 

It is a mid- to high-range massage chair, currently priced at $9,680. It is designed to give you the experience of two synchronized masseuses caressing your entire body, raising the bar on full-body massage to new heights. With this chair, you will be able to enjoy the luxurious 4-Hand Massage, which can provide you with double the pleasure and satisfaction. 

Therefore, massage chairs are worth it because of its numerous benefits, the most important of which is convenience.

Why Massage Chairs are Worth the Money?

Here we discuss the main reasons massage chairs are a smart buy.

Massage Functions

The majority of cheap massage chairs just provide vibration and rolling massage. However, high-end massage chairs come with various features to help you relax. These characteristics include, but are not limited to:

  • Tapping
  • Vibration
  • Kneading
  • Rolling
  • Shiatsu
  • Heat therapy
  • Reflexology
  • Sound therapy
  • Space-saving design
  • Pre-programmed functions
  • Zero gravity & inversion therapy
  • 2D, 3D, & 4D roller intensity

Of course, the number and quality of these features will influence the massage chair price, but prioritizing your long-term health is well worth it. 

Consider our uDream Well-Being Chair. Currently priced at approximately $14,000, it is the world’s first 5-senses well-being massage chair. It uses cutting-edge electrocardiogram (ECG) technology to detect and interpret tension signals from your bodies, resulting in insightful and simple Body Tension Scores. It is, in a nutshell, equipped to detect just how stressed you are and can initiate the right type of massage program to help you relax. 

Massage Airbags

Massage airbags provide effective relief from tension and stiffness by pumping compressed air into little pouches in the back, legs or sides of your massage chair. 

When the airbags are inflated, they compress your muscles, promoting blood flow and relieving discomfort. In comparison to the roller method, this provides a different experience and massage style.

Massage Rollers & Track

Massage actions such as kneading and tapping are performed by massage rollers. You can choose the intensity and/or target specific sections of your body by changing the type of the track and the type of rollers (there are L-Track, S-Track, 3D, and 4D rollers).

Heated Massage

A heated massage seat or backrest is available on most modern massage chairs. Your massage becomes substantially more effective by relaxing your muscles, boosting circulation and releasing toxins when you use infrared heat.

Heat therapy is usually limited to the lower back, although certain massage chairs offer full-body heat that extends from the soles of the feet to the headrest.

Recline Function

Most high-end massage chairs offer several reclining options; the most popular of which is zero gravity. Zero gravity reclining resembles weightlessness in space by positioning your body in a gravity-neutral position and easing pressure on your spine.

A single-touch function on some massage chair enables you take full control of your position at the touch of a button. Adding a degree of recline to your massage not only delivers a deeper massage but also considerably increases relaxation.
