I got a great question from a massage chair shopper this morning about imitation massage chairs out there that look a like but are from different distributors. Here is the question and my answer:
Massage Chair Question:
I have really appreciated finding the information you have provided in your blog during my journey of discovery educating myself on massage chairs. I am interested in your experience about chairs out of China. I have read your articles about the Osaki OS-7000 and your view that for the price is quite impressive. It is interesting that I have seen a number of companies trying to sell a chair that looks and reads exactly the same, under a different name! Do the Chinese factories send the same chair to any importer, or are they simply replicas that do not perform the same way? By way of example, here is a website of a company in China called Life Power that sends an identical looking chair to an Australian importer. http://life-power.en.alibaba.
