WHEN BUYING A MASSAGE CHAIR
• It is important to do your research beforehand. When it comes to getting a massage chair, each person has different requirements and a different budget. It is important to ask yourself some questions to ensure you get a massage chair that suits your needs.
• It is really important to try your chosen chair in person for about 15 minutes to make sure that the pressure and fit are suitable. Massage chairs often have many features, but the reality is that people only use some of them. If you tend to get muscle tension in certain parts of your body, you may want a massage chair that does a particularly good job massaging that area.
• Be sure to find out how long the warranty lasts and what it includes. A standard warranty should cover parts and labour.
• And finally, if you are considering getting a massage chair, it's a good idea to check with your doctor first.
