Many customers were happy with this massage chair’s performance. One received it for her birthday as requested and it was able to target her problem areas such as her lower back and knots in between her shoulders. This reviewer liked how it was able to do rolling and shiatsu massages. Friends and family of the reviewer also liked its performance and always want to try using it. This reviewer also thought that for its price, it is of a good value. One husband shared how his wife, who is a school administrator, found this to help her relax and found it to do a great job in massaging the back and neck areas. The shiatsu was found to be very effective for one customer who along with the shiatsu mode also puts on vibration for a delightful experience. A customer was happy that it can be used to target specific places in his back and massage it as long as he pleased.
There were several problems with this massager for some of the customers. A customer pointed out that it makes squeaking noises, but she wasn’t sure if it was due to the use that it is taking. The customer also reported that the padding should have been a bit thicker since it is also not comfortable to sit in if the user is not wearing thick clothing. Yet another customer also complained because at 5’2, it seemed that the massage areas didn’t hit the right places in her body i.e. the lower back massage actually touched her shoulders. On top of that, she found that the shiatsu was more painful than it was relaxing. Another unsatisfied customer complained because it stopped working after a short use. One customer found that the rolling mode was not satisfying, but loved the shiatsu.
There are several views regarding this massage chair. It seems that the views seem to be conflicting of each other. However, we believe that this might not be the best massager in the market. We can conclude this from the average rating of 3.6. While it did go over the half mark, it should also be noted that most of the customers scored it a 4. In addition, we believe that in buying a massage chair, you should be able to experience a demo before buying it to see if the programs are compatible with your body and needs.
