While they won't have all of the advanced features of luxury massage chairs, you will be taking a significant step up from massage chairs priced under $3,000.
We've picked our 5 favorites for you in this price point ranked based on reviews and customer feedback.
But before we go over the chairs, let's talk about what to expect with a massage chair in this range:
Features of Massage Chairs Under 5000
Beyond the basic (zero gravity, shoulder massage, rollers) you will see a ton of specialty features in this price range.
You will also see chairs with an original price of $6,000 - $8,000 marked down to this level. Pro tip: Always check for deals.
Here are a few other common features you will see with these chairs:
- Lumbar heat: Chairs will have heat on the back and lumbar areas.
- Bluetooth speakers: Most chairs will come with bluetooth speakers and a USB/wireless charger.
- Full body Airbag Massage: The chairs will feel more like a massage from a masseuse.
- Specialty Massage Features: Different types of massages such as Shiatsu, Swedish, or specialized foot rollers.
- Focal Area Massage. You will also see focal area massages such as: Head, calf, shoulders, or neck.
- Advanced Foot Massage: Chairs have dual action foot rollers or features like foot reflexology.
- Adjustable Massage: The ability to adjust the pressure of the massage rollers or airbags is HUGE. One of the #1 complaints on certain models is the massage is too firm.
- Specialized body type massage: On the taller side or muscular? We see some chairs having custom functions.
- Advanced Zero Gravity Massage: While zero gravity has become a standard, you will find that all zero gravity chairs aren't made equal. You will find "true" zero gravity in higher end chairs.
