Massage Chair Relief is the brainchild of Dr. Alan Weidner. Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Dr. Weidner immigrated with his family to the USA in 1988 to pursue his chiropractic education. He has a Bachelor of Science degree and is a 1991 summa cum laude graduate of the Southern California University of Health Sciences (formerly known as Los Angeles College of Chiropractic).
While in school at SCUHS, he co-chaired the “Visiting Scholars Program”. Through this organization, he helped coordinate visits to the school from national and international scholars, well-respected in the neurology and musculo-skeletal disciplines, to teach the student body. It was during this time that he gained a greater understanding of, and appreciation for, the human body and how it works, particularly with regards to musculo-skeletal issues. Of course, he also became expert at chiropractic manipulative therapy and various other treatment modalities that served to alleviate those issues. Massage therapy was one of those modalities that complemented his chiropractic education for which he gained a great appreciation.
He started his own private practice in Taylorsville, UT in 1992 and became familiar with massage chair therapy in the late 1990’s. He added a Human Touch HT-125 massage chair to his clinic as an adjunct therapy for his patients. In 2005, while still in private practice, and armed with his thorough understanding of the musculo-skeletal system, he started Massage-Chair-Relief.com and began educating the public about the health benefits of massage chairs, while at the same time retailing Human Touch, Panasonic, and Sanyo massage chairs through his site. At that time, these were really the only brand-name massage chairs available.
The industry has grown exponentially since that time, in both brands/models and retailers. In 2008, he sold his practice to devote himself full-time to the massage chair industry. It was at that time that he opened his first massage chair showroom. Arguably known as the most recognizable and trusted expert in the industry today, Dr. Weidner is still very actively engaged in promoting massage chairs through quality content education, in both video and written formats, as well as progressively innovating for the massage chair retail industry as a whole. Dr. Weidner has specialized in massage chairs in the USA longer than any other retailer in the industry and was the first to have a showroom with all the major name brands of massage chairs under one roof.
