Well that seems to be the question I keep getting literally 1’s of times over the past week, “What is thee best massage chair of 2016?”

OK, so it is not really a question that I get asked the most; that question is what is the best affordable ergonomic chair? Well seeing as I have already answered that one, I thought I would answer the question of the best massage seat that money can buy.

This is in part because I want to help everyone who emails me, and partly because I am in  place called Udon Thani, Thailand with my wife and got to test an amazing Sanyo massage chair.

This particular reflexology seat was really fantastic; seriously amazing, but I will not be using it for this review because after s bit of digging around; I found out that this particular stool is an Asia specific (regional) massage chair and most of my loyal readers come from the good Ol’ USA.

In order to help you decide on the best reflexology recliner for your aching bones; I will review 3 of the top rated massage chairs available.

But here’s the deal:

I know that most of my readers are either interested in the best that money can buy, or just want something that does its job without breaking the bank and as a result, I will show you the best affordable relaxing stool, the best average priced relaxation chair and then the best overall reflexology chair that money can buy.

Now:

I must pre warn you that because Ergonomic Health takes reviewing very seriously and I don’t want to offer you just any old, cheap and nasty products.

I have done a lot of research to find you the best massage chairs in a range of prices, but from this research I have found that you just cannot buy a decent reflexology chair for cheap.

You can buy the cheap sub-priced, electric massage things that you just throw onto any random chair, but in my experience, these things can do more harm than good.

This means that the “affordable” recliner I review is still priced quite highly. However this means that you are getting a great massage recliner that will last, ease your muscles, correct your posture and get you feeling relaxed for a long time!

With that out of the way, let’s get to it…

What Are The Benefits Of A Massage Chair?

In order to answer this, you first need to understand how they work:

Massage therapy Techniques

Currently, the most effective reflexology techniques that electric reflexology stools are designed to to involve the eponymous Shiatsu and Swedish styles.

Shiatsu massage tends make use of:

  • Pressing
  • Sweeping
  • Patting
  • Rolling
  • Rotating  

The defining quality of Shiatsu is its focus on releasing tension around specific locations of the body.

Swedish reflexology mainly involve long gliding strokes and kneading.

This type of message aims at fostering proper and strong blood circulation.

What is the bottom line?

Well, a mechanical substitute can never reproduce the exact feeling of human touch.

However, the more these companies invest in research, the more designers have been able to closely approximate the necessary factors in an electric reflexology recliner.

In my opinion, the main benefits of a reflexology chair lie in the fact that you can use it whenever you want to without having to worry about cost or traveling to and from a masseuse parlor.

History of the Electric Message Chair

The shiatsu massage chair was first introduced on the consumer market during the late 1980’s.

Intended to emulate the motions and techniques of a real masseuse, the objective of top rated electric massager stool was to relieve stress & tension, as well as alleviating back ache, (especially in the lumbar region).

Although message seats were initially slow-moving and didn’t catch on at the speed of some other consumer goods; after a decade or possibly even longer, interest in the technology increased massively spurring competitors to strive to create the best models and research into more advanced technology.

Summary

So there you have my best electric reflexology recliner reviews for 2016.

I have included both the Pros and Cons for each seat in order that you can get a fuller understanding of what they are really about.

I can say without a doubt that the IInada Sogno Dreamwave Reflexology chair is the best massager chair out there right now and will be for some time.

However, its cost is somewhat prohibitive for most people (including myself). 

If money is not so much of an issue and you want only the best; then the Inada Sogno Dreamwave Electric Massage Chair & Recliner is the one to go for.

If you are on a bit more of a budget, then the Human Touch massager recliner is going to be a great option to relieve your weary bones.
