Massage Chairs?


Anyone using one? Bought one? Had any experience with the GENESIS Chair?

There were 3 displays at Vegas, and they were selling for $4,500.....and I tried all of them...amazing massage. So anyone else have or use one?

Re: Massage Chairs?


I have used them at the mall, good for a buck, I don't think I would spend $4500 on one though That will buy a lot of visits to the local massage parlor

Re: Massage Chairs?


We sold the iJoy(Human Touch) line at my family's furniture store for years. They're really nice and I used to spend 10-15 minutes every day in one. The downside is that they will break eventually and then it's just a fairly uncomfortable chair.

We had floor models last for 5-6 years which would see 1/2 hour to an hour of use a day which is a lot more than most individuals would use it.

PS- the calf/foot massage is actually my favorite part if you're looking at models with/without that.

I bought on Amazon...

This was my wife's Christmas present to help with her foot neuropathy & calf circulation issues. Of course I have to use it on occasion for the same reasons.
It seems to be very heavy duty, and some reviews say" hospital grade"
It seems to have helped her conditions in a couple months of use. I still have trouble with using it sometimes, due to my recovery symptoms from my Lymphoma bout. At times I love it, other times it's too intense. My wife said the same thing initially, & just placed a small towel in each foot pocket to soften the massage a bit. I guess I just need to do the same! The reviews are about as good as they get, at under $300.

Palliser makes a pretty good massage chair--they have one that massages your calves--HEAVEN! My chiropractor used to have one in his waiting room.
