The best way to relax after a stressful day is to sit back and enjoy a nice massage while watching your favorite show or reading a good book. Before you can take advantage of all the wonderful benefits of owning a massage chair, you have to find the one that best fits your needs and budget. Here are some of the things you should consider:

Space and Location
If you’d like a massage chair that reclines, you won’t be able to position the back of the massage chair close to a wall. Measure the space you have in mind before selecting a chair. A massage chair salesperson should be able to tell you how much room you need for the massage chair to recline all the way, and whether the particular model you’re interested in will work in your space.

Some massage chairs have wheels, so the chair can be moved from room to room or out of sight. This makes them ideal for people who don’t mind a massage chair in their living room, but want to be able to move it out of the way when company comes. Source: VeryWell

Massage chairs come with different features to choose from. Shiatsu massage chairs target pressure points all over the body with pressing, swaying, and rolling movements. Some offer Swedish massages that use light intensity kneading movements. Then there are zero-gravity chairs that recline to a zero-gravity position before providing the massage. Try out different chairs to find out which provides the best experience to you.

Massage chairs cater to different areas of your body. You’re probably not going to use all of the features of your massage chair so it is important to figure out which part(s) of your body requires special attention and buy a chair that caters to those areas. If you want a good foot massage, buy chairs that incorporate foot massagers. If you feel excessive pain in your neck and shoulder area, then go for massage chairs that focus on alleviating pain in your neck and shoulder. Source: LifeHack

Certain massage chairs will come with a separate ottoman or a leg-rest that extends in and out of the chair. Some positions may be more comfortable for certain back conditions; for example, sitting in a reclining position with the legs elevated may be more comfortable for some people with spinal stenosis. Several chairs even have a leg-rest that has its own massage or vibration capabilities. Source: Spine-Health
