What is a full body massage chair?
When you are looking for massage chairs under $3000, you will notice they still are backed with a ton of features. While they won't have all the bells and whistles of more expensive massage chairs, they still will have all the core functions that will soothe your body. They will also still be full body massage chairs.
A full body massage chair means just that - a massage chair that will cover everything from your feet until your neck. Most chairs have an air massage system, dual foot rollers, and a zero gravity recline (great for relaxing!).
Features To Consider For Your Massage Chair
There's really a massage chair out there for everybody. The key is finding out what's important to you. While we won't see the most advanced massage techniques in these chairs compared to what you would with a luxury chair, you're still going to get a ton of massage techniques for the price point.
Here are a couple of staples to think about with your next massage chair:
Compression massage: These are the new generation airbags that make massage chairs feel more like getting an in person massage. New airbags make the massage seem more lifelike.
Ability to Adjust Massage Therapy Intensity: The #1 reason anyone returns a chair is because it is too rough or not a firm enough massage. Newer chairs can be customized to fit the needs of multiple people.
Calf and Foot massage: Chairs have differing massage rollers to give a variety of massage techniques to your foot and calfs. Common settings are reflexology and acupuncture.
Heat therapy: Most chairs in this range will just have lumbar heat therapy. Important note: We test chairs that say they have heat therapy or advanced features, but usually they fall short during the sitting test of the best massage chairs under $3,000.
