5 Things You Absolutely Must Know Before You Even Consider Investing In A High-Quality, Robotic Massage Chair
Presented by Dr. Alan Weidner
If you’re tired of suffering from back, neck, or joint pain and badly need relief . . . or if you’ve been dreaming of the relaxation and health benefits that are only offered by a high-quality massage chair . . . then you owe it to your body and owe it to yourself to read this short report.
Hi, This is Dr. Alan Weidner from Massage-Chair-Relief.com and I want to thank you for downloading this free report . . . and congratulate you on your decision to invest in a massage chair.
Several years ago I decided I wanted to buy a robotic massage chair for my chiropractic office here in Taylorsville, Utah. Like many people (perhaps like you) I’d spent quite a few long, wonderful minutes sitting in a robotic massage chair in a store at the mall . . . and was amazed at how the robotic massage action relieved pain in my back and neck and allowed me to relax and revitalize myself in surprisingly little time.
But When I Went Looking Online For A Good Massage Chair That Would Have High Therapeutic Value And Would Give Me And My Patients Years Of Pain Relief And Comfort, I Was Confused
It seemed like it was almost impossible to find good information on the differences between the various massage chairs out there . . . and that there were far too many “cheapo” massage chair companies flooding the market with low-quality (and sometimes even dangerous) knockoffs . . . knockoffs that I wouldn’t feel comfortable using myself or recommending to my patients.
As a chiropractic doctor with a deep understanding of the human body and how it would interact with these chairs, I was eventually able to make my way through the confusing double talk and marketing hype and make a decision about what chair I wanted in my office (and what chairs I would feel comfortable recommending to my patients.)
In fact, I became so interested in massage chairs and the great effect they can have on people’s lives that I founded Massage-Chair-relief.com . . . and began “prescribing” high-quality chairs to people around the world as a way to lessen pain, increase comfort, and reduce stress.
In the next few pages I’m going to lay out the 5 key things you need and deserve to have in mind before deciding what massage chair to bring into your life, what brand of massage chair to buy . . . and which massage chair reseller to purchase it from.
Obviously, I think that Massage-Chair-Relief.com is the best way for you to buy your new massage chair . . . but even if you don’t decide to do business with us, you’ll still learn valuable information in these pages that will make your purchase of a new massage chair as simple as possible . . . and will help you make sure you make a wise investment that will pay you back in pain-relief and comfort for years to come.
Here’s What You Need To Know Before You Even Consider Buying A Robotic Massage Chair
- What Features Should You Look For In A Massage Chair?
Not so long ago a “massage chair” was just a regular living room chair with a vibrating motor built into it. It didn’t do much to “massage” the body or to relieve pain, but was great if you wanted to shake up your lunch.
The point of a massage chair is to stimulate the therapeutic effects of a massage therapist. If you’ve ever had a professional massage, you know that a talented therapist uses a number of techniques.
Whether you’re buying your massage chair for comfort or to deal with a chronic pain condition such as sciatica or a painful mid back, you’ll want to make sure it has (at the very least) the following settings:
Kneading - Called “Shiatsu” by some, kneading rolls from the center of the spine outward and feels like two hands alternately rubbing your back. A kneading massage is a great way to relieve stress and give your overworked back muscles a break.
Percussion/Tapping - Have you ever seen a massage therapist “karate chopping” someone’s back? A percussive massage really gets the blood flowing and feels amazing. It’s particularly good if you’ve been doing a lot of intense exercise.
Rolling - In my chiropractic office I have a $2,800.00 table called a “Roller table.” It’s basically just wheels that roll up and down either side of your spine, gently moving the spinal bones and stretching your spine and muscles. Most quality massage chairs come with rolling action standard. And when you sit in one of these chairs and feel it push your spine back into position, you’ll understand why it’s so popular.
Full Recline - To truly get a deep tissue massage you need to put as much of your weight onto your massage chair as possible. Unfortunately, many of the popular massage chairs out there only recline to a paltry 135 degrees. For maximum benefits, I’d recommend you get a chair that reclines 170 to 180 degrees so that you can lay down and truly enjoy your massage. (This is particularly important if you suffer from sciatica and find sitting difficult or painful.)
Airbag Massage - This is truly an optional feature, but if you’ve ever experienced a good foot and calf massage, or arm massage, or seat massage you know how wonderful it can feel.Many new chairs now come with additional innovative features, like mechanical foot rollers, zero gravity, inversion, extended roller tracks down the back, chromotherapy, music systems, and even head massagers! They are all pretty cool features, but you need to decide what is important to you and which features make the most sense to you.
- How Durable Is Your Chair?
Unfortunately there are many, many “knock off” massage chairs being sold online . . . chairs that are hacked together cheaply in Chinese factories, don’t live up to their promises, or do what they’re meant to, and are prone to breaking at a moment’s notice.
When I was looking for my first massage chair, I discovered that there are two big factors to think about to make sure that you get a quality chair that will last you for years to come. They are:
How long is your chair’s warranty? The longer the warranty offered by the manufacturer of the chair, the more confidence they have in their product. But don't be fooled by fly-by-night online companies who offer outrageous 10 year warranties on a $2000 massage chair. Good luck finding your retailer in 6 months when you have a problem with your chair! A 10 year warranty doesn't mean anything if you can't get a hold of the company that sold you the chair!! Most of the "good" massage chair manufacturer's (like the ones we represent) offer a rock-solid 3-5 year limited warranty. Actually, Inada has come out with a 3 year comprehensive, on-site warranty for all their chairs, while Panasonic has introduced a 3 year parts and labor, in-home warranty on their top tier chairs...both warranties the best in the business.
What’s the reputation of the brand? Beware of strange sounding or “rare” brands. Yes, it’s possible that a little-known brand has a high-quality product, but with an investment like a massage chair you want to be safe, not sorry. In my experience, I’ve found Inada, Human Touch, Panasonic, Infinity, Luraco, Osaki, and Cozzia to offer higher-quality chairs backed by great warranties.
- How easy is your chair to repair?
Even the best massage chair may eventually break down. Make sure your massage chair is built with a modular design (most are nowadays) so that it can be easily repaired . . . and so that you can repair it without having to send the whole chair back to the manufacturer. Not to brag, but virtually every chair we sell at Massage-Chair-Relief.com has a sturdy, modular design . . . not to mention a reputation for durability. Be careful of warranties that, in the small print, expect you to ship the chair back to the company if you need a repair. We prefer to recommend chairs that have in-home warranties, especially during the first year.
Make sure, also, that your massage chair manufacturer has easy-to-reach customer support after the sale. If you have a problem with your chair and you call customer support, there better be someone at the other end of the phone picking up and interacting with you about your chair.
- What’s the reputation of the reseller?
Unfortunately there are many “fly by night” online companies out there selling massage chairs to make a quick buck. Honestly, most of the sites you see out there aren’t really companies at all, but just marketing middle men who don’t provide any real value.
For such an expensive item, you’ll want to make sure that your reseller has plenty of testimonials and reviews, a great reputation for customer service and an absolute reputation for putting the customer first. My personal opinion is that they should also have a brick-and-mortar showroom where you can actually chat with a live person and try out the chairs.
At Massage-Chair-Relief.com we’ve compiled a long list of testimonials from happy customers . . . and pride ourselves on making sure every customer is ecstatic both with the product they buy and the service they receive.
- Does the retailer have a money-back-guarantee?
Buying a big item like a massage chair online does in fact have some risk to it. What if you get the chair delivered and it doesn’t fit your decor? Or what if it just isn’t as comfortable or therapeutic as you were hoping?
Before clicking the “order now” button or picking up the phone, make sure that your reseller offers a strong money-back guarantee . . . and that you don’t get stuck paying the shipping costs to your home or office.
At Massage-Chair-Relief.com we have a best-in-industry 90 day no questions asked, money back guarantee. If you aren’t happy with your chair for any reason, just let us know and we’ll refund your money in full . . .and remember that we offer free shipping of your chair to you.
And that’s really all you need to know to make a smart choice when it comes to buying a high-quality robotic massage chair that will give you many years of pain relief and increased comfort.
Of course, when you do decide that it’s time to invest in a high-quality robotic massage chair, I hope that you’ll visit us again at massage-chair-relief.com.

I wanted to take a moment to compliment you on your customer service to date. I have been working as an executive assistant for almost 30 years and in recent years have found that customer service has deteriorated significantly. Your company on the other hand is providing first rate customer service from the initial order process to the delivery updates. I ordered this chair for my bosses son; perhaps one day I will be in a position to order one for myself Smile.
Thank you for making my job easier. My best to you an your future successes. Regards,”
"I am enjoying my massage chair. After a day seeing children as a pediatrician it's great to come home to a relaxing massage. I have some arthritis in my hip and the stretching really helps with the pain. Thank you for doing what you said you would do every step of the way including reasonable pricing, shipping, gifts, availability, response to questions, and warranty paperwork. I can recommend your business with highest regards without reservation. Thank you.”

The two chairs I ordered were delivered last Friday, and we have been enjoying them immensely for the past 3 days. When your web site indicated "free shipping", I expected the chairs would take 2 or 3 weeks to arrive. I never expected them to be air-freighted here in a matter of a couple days.
The Human Touch chairs are fantastic -- we're reluctant to show them to our friends as we suspect they won't leave and go home."
"I am VERY impressed with your system and your Customer service. As a business owner I recognize the importance of good after-sale follow up. I like how you are proactive and let your clients know what to expect well in advance. I also really liked your staff and your onlline ‘chat’ capability.
Because of all of this I will buy things from you again."
"Hello Dr. Weidner,
I wanted to let you know that...we got the chair really fast and are very happy with it! We thank you for the fantastic service and great help on the phone.
Thank you! Great service!"
As you know we had quite a time getting delivery of our Interactive Health 1650 as they (not you) delayed our shipping for 17 days. But without your help we would never have gotten our chair before Christmas. The Interactive Health 1650 is worth the price. It should be reminded to customers that the foot rest must be fully reclined to operate but otherwise you were right that it is very easy to use. Thanks again we would not shop anywhere else."
"Dr. Alan Weidner-
Received the HT-140 Massage chair in approximately a week. Love it! Couldn't unpack and set it up fast enough.The delivery person brought the chair to the door and my 3 year old grandson was quite anxious to help me unpack it. I do massage therapy and somehow missed out on getting a massage myself. I took care of everyone else and forgot about myself. All the features have proven very relaxing to tense muscles and stiffness. My husband and I use it every day.This chair is certainly the best Christmas gift my husband and I decided to get for each other. My son and daughter-in-law were fighting to get on it first. I am sure Christmas day, the teenage grandchildren who are very active in sports, will also be fighting their turn. Never bought anything over the internet before and were a bit leary with making this purchase - We are so glad
we made the decision to go ahead and order it. Appreciated the e-mail updates as the shipment was processed. Thank you so much for the opportunity to enjoy this chair hopefully for many years and in good health."
"A few months ago I was looking for the perfect birthday present for my husband. He always complained of backaches and dreamed of a massage chair. I found this web-site but had many hesitations in placing an order because we live in Germany. After a few very encouraging emails between Dr. Alan Weidner and myself, I decided to go through with the order for the HT-125. I received absolutely incredible customer service from the minute I sent the first mail until after the chair was delivered. Dr. Weidner helped me with import customs questions and supplied the transformer that converted the electricity for the chair when it got to Europe. Since this was a surprise present for my husband it had to be delivered on or shortly before his birthday. I was constantly updated regarding the shipping status to assure an on-time delivery here in Stuttgart.
After the chair arrived (exactly perfect timing, by the way) I was so relieved that it made it all the way here in one piece. My husband was absolutely surprised and very happy to see his gift. He tried it out right away. Unfortunately, he found something wrong with the electronics. A few programs weren't working. I was so disappointed. It was my worst nightmare. What would I do now with a broken massage chair? Send it back to the U.S.? I immediately sent Dr. Alan Weidner an email asking for help and he responded promptly with a solution. The problem happened most likely during transportation and had to do with the electronics in the back of the chair. Although the parts are not covered under warranty when the chair leaves the U.S., Dr. Weidner shipped us the replacement parts completely free of charge. If that isn't incredible customer service, I don't know what is. The instructions that were sent with the replacement part were easy to follow and we completed the repair ourselves. My husband and I both use the massage chair and couldn't be happier about the purchase."
