    We purchased this chair for my parents and they absolutely love it. They are used to getting deep tissue massages and this chair does the job for them. There are different levels of strength so it’s customizable for how deep you like the massage. They were so happy with it that they convinced us to purchase one too. We have been using it every day. My husband likes it a bit stronger while I like it a bit lighter. There are so many options that we haven’t tried all of it yet. The one that surprised us was that it helps you stretch as well. Very happy with the purchase. I also want to thank Dr. Weidner for guiding and helping us with the chair. He is very knowledgeable and truly wants his clients to love their purchase. If you’re looking to purchase a chair, Dr. Weidner is the guy.

    I took time to research message chairs and visited with Dr. Weidner many times. He was always very patient and informative. Dr. Weidner recommended coming to the show room to try out the chairs. We had planned a trip to Message Chair Relief’s show room in Arizona. Unfortunately, because of a Covid scare, we were unable to make the 13 hour trip. So, we went to Boulder and Arvada, Colorado to test the chairs he recommended. The Human Touch Super Novo was our favorite! It was relaxing and comfortable. We tried out many other chairs, but in my case, the others were uncomfortable. So I highly recommend trying out the chairs before you decide on one. We are extremely happy with our purchase, as were our kids when they came for Christmas! My husband and I both suffer from some lower back issues. After using this chair, his numbness in his foot is gone! Our daughter is eight months pregnant. She has been coming over to sit in the chair to relieve her back pain. Everyday one of the family tries another feature of the chair and finds a new favorite feature. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Weidner. He gives outstanding customer service! Thank you to Human Touch and Dr. Weidner from Message Chair Relief!

    I bought this chair for my wife as a Christmas present and she absolutely LOVES it. I had a feeling she would and the chair itself is amazing, however the service of Massage-chair-relief was even better. They answered every question I had, and I had a million, and walked me through so many different chairs that I feel like a pro now. The delivery process was smooth and the ultimate reason I chose them to purchase from was their lifetime warranty on Labor. My biggest fear about buying a chair was that it would stop working after a year and then just sit in my house. With the lifetime labor warranty, I won’t fear calling to have things fixed “if” they do fail after years of use. Great chair but even better company and service!

    First AND foremost, we purchased our Luraco 7Plus from Doctor Weidner as an open box item. I could not be happier. The chair was delivered as promised, in new condition. Our family enjoys this chair daily and you quickly learn the health benefits of having your own massage chair at your beck and call. My wife was reluctant to purchase such a pricey Christmas gift, but has learned she was completely wrong about delaying this purchase for over a year. I HIGHLY suggest you visit a store and check out what chair is best for you. You will not find an all in one as close as we have to this chair, but you should know what you’re looking for MOST in a chair. Try them out, and select the one you prefer and DO NOT BASE YOUR DECISION ON PRICE. You are going to spend a truck load of money on a chair. Don’t go cheap just to have an expensive room ornament you won’t use.

    This chair is a life-saver! Purchased with an amazing discount and with Dr. Weidner’s personalized service, we were able to easily purchase it – make changes on our purchase when we needed it, and have the chair delivered to our home. It took us about an hour to put it all together – not hard to do with a YouTube video – just being slow and careful – the air hoses took some effort to ensure pushing in – but once we got it all put together – we both took turns falling asleep in it! It looks and feels like a spaceship and you literally feel like you are leaving for outer space. The prior reviews say its “aggressive” but I’d reframe it – to me, I had not had a massage in over a year – especially with the pandemic – so everything was aggressive. After noodling with the functions and playing with everything, I was able to figure out how to lessen and lighten the massage and now, after a week of having the chair, we’ve managed to get it to the write pressure, etc. and its just pure HEAVEN. It makes a HUGE difference everyday, gets our blood circulating…and even helped me with an adjustment issue that I had when I strained my back doing something else a few days after getting the chair. You still should exercise, eat right etc., but this chair is a must for ensuring total body health. I start my every morning and end my every day in it and its indispensable. With the lifetime labor warranty this was a no brainer when I did thorough research on the competition. Here’s hoping for years of health and healing with this chair!

    We recently purchased the Imperial after speaking with Dr Weidner after seeing his informational videos on YouTube; the service we have received from Massage Chair Relief, as well as Infinity customer support (located in Seabrook NH), has been great all around…. the chair arrived on time to our home in Massachusetts within a couple weeks from the order date and fit thru our narrow 30” doors after taking it out of the box; the assembly was a little more challenging than depicted on the videos, but we finally got it together.This chair is is a powerful, sophisticated, high end piece of equipment that takes time to learn how to use properly within your comfort level and body type….. I’m 6’3” 230 lbs and my wife is 5’4” 135lbs…. we are both becoming more and more comfortable with the chair as we continue to learn. I called Infinity with some questions, and they quickly sent me a pad for the chair and the foot rollers to soften the intensity….. I received them in one day (free of charge) and they work great… highly recommended as you get used to the chair. We love the Imperial, especially at the currently reduced price….. it’s a high end machine to be respected and appreciated; we own and operate a landscape Co and love to hike (we’re in our 60s)….. the Infinity Imperial is a wonderful addition to our busy lives!

    I think this review might be more helpful if I broke it into two parts. The chair and the whole buying experience.
    The chair – arrived sooner that expected which was fine for sure. The communication from MCR, the freight shipper, and the local delivery/set up company was great. We were informed almost daily with each step of the process by each party, with MCR providing oversight communication, from the warehouse to my home. The install was quick and nearly perfect – there were a couple of niggles that I sorted out on my own. I kept the shipping materials ‘just in case’ I need to return the chair. The plan is to hold them for 30 days and then dispose. But after nearly twice daily use by two people the 30 days may get reduced with the chair’s flawless performance. I’m tall, 6’4″ and my wife it 5’6″ and the chair accommodates our height spread without issue. There are several programs in the preprogramed list that suit us well. The adjustability of the rollers and air pressure allow us to set the chair up for our individual preferences. The intensity and effectiveness of the massage works well for us. I have chronic pain in a calf that this chair really helps me deal with it. I have thought that a 20 minute chair massage is like getting 60+ minutes of massage by a person because so may things are happening at the same time certainly more than one person could do alone. That said I’m not sure it’s helpful to describe in detail the user experience because each of us has different needs/expectations for a massage chair – mine won’t match yours. You need to ‘find’ the solution that best fits your needs. And that is where MCR and Dr. Alan shine.
    The buying experience – the internet is an amazing tool to quickly educate yourself on brands, features, specs, pricing, etc etc but at the end of the day it’s one dimensional learning in that I had facts but no practical knowledge. Sort of like being a Flight Simulator pilot verses a real cockpit pilot – knowledge but not enough to really fly. This is where Dr. Alan provides practical insight that helps sort through fit and features. Over the course of several weeks of shopping, asking, answering, asking again, answering again and phone calls we got to a place that we could make an educated decision that had a high probably of working for us. And it has worked. At the end of the day there are a lot of moving pieces to making a good decision about spending hard earned dollars and MCR makes the whole process easier with honest answers, experienced advice and a customer focused approach. The life time labor warranty was a plus for us but honestly I’d have to say the the peace of mind I have regarding this whole experience comes from the trust and confidence that I have in MCR and Dr. Alan’s business integrity. Stuff can happen and if it does I am confident that we can sort it out.

    I recently purchased the Human Touch Novo XT2 from message-chair-relief. The complimentary white glove service provided flawless delivery and complete setup. The Novo XT2 was in the sweet spot for me. It was at my maximum price point and still has all of the features I wanted. Dr. Weidner was a tremendous help. He answered all of my questions and made me comfortable before making my purchase. I can’t imagine buying a message chair from anyone else.

    Massage Chair Relief is the best place to buy a massage chair. You can sit in all of the chairs, try them out, and see which works for you. The programs on this chair are outstanding, the stretch superb. You can do a full air massage as well. There is not a better chair on the market, and MCR is the best place to purchase. One suggestion though, it would be nice if you could update the firmware, and design your own massage program.

    We purchased the Pegasus 2 Smart. Alan was very helpful, he showed us several chairs, answered all our questions and just went out of his way to help. We have been very happy with the chair, we use it every day and have enjoyed the different programs. We have several favorites. We couldn’t be happier.

I Really Appreciate The Before Delivery E-mails From You...

"Thanks Alan, I received the massage chair on Saturday within the shipping period you stated. The shipping company was excellent; the individual who delivered the chair to my home was not only professional, but very nice! I have already used and setup the chair with no problems. By the way, I really appreciate the before delivery e-mails from you, it was a nice way of keeping me on track of the different stages of the delivery. Much thanks,"Stan TolanGardena, California

"We would recommend Massage Chair Relief to anyone who is interested in buying a massage chair"

When we first came to the store in Salt Lake it was awesome. Stephanie was so nice and knowledgeable about all the chairs that were in the show room. She had us take off our shoes and sit in each chair to see the differences between the chairs. We left that day very happy and discussing which chairs we liked the most. The next day we went to another store here and were very disappointed in the customer service and selection that was available. So we went back to Massage Chair Relief. We spend 9 hours in the store that day. We left for dinner and returned to buy 2 chairs. They were so helpful and friendly. When our chairs were delivered it was a week later. We were so excited that we called our family to come and sit in the chairs. After my father-in-law sat in my chair he went to the store and got his own. We would recommend Massage Chair Relief to anyone who is interested in buying a massage chair. If you live in Utah or surrounding states make the trip to the store. It will be well worth it. Thank you Dr. Al and Stephanie. We love you guys and we love our chairs.David and Brook GonzalesSandy, Utah

"It is a pleasure to buy from Massage Chair Relief"

I ordered this chair for my husband as a gift. It is pleasure to buy from and has very good communication. Highly Recommended. The chair was was a snap to set up. The controls are easy to use and the many different massage options hit about every spot on the body - including feet! The leather is nice and soft, it looks beautiful in my family room. Thank you,Susan QiuTexas

"I was scared ordering a big purchase item through a website, but rest assured these guys...are trustworthy"

I bought a sanyo massage chair from this website through a price match and they had the BEST deal with extra bonus gifts and EXCELLENT customer service when i called them through the phone. I was scared ordering a big purchase item through a website, but rest assured these guys answered my questions and are trustworthy. Pleasure doing business with them, the chair is working great. Thanks.Varinder SinghHicksville, NY

"Thanks again for the great service. You have a customer and reference for life."

Dr. Weidner, Received my chair on Friday. It's AWESOME!!!! It did take some adjusting to get it just right but the more I used it and explored, the more comfortable I got with it. A few observations:
  • Holding the control is a bit awkward, I might install it on a gooseneck (like the Panasonic chair) so I can see it while reclined and have easy access to it.
  • The chair does so much more than the instructions, the combinations are endless.
  • It can be reclined to the Zero Gravity position yet they don't advertise this.
Over the weekend, I had to walk away from it or I would have had too many massages! Thanks again for the great service. You have a customer and reference for life. Best of regards,Jun RoxasIrvine, California

"Your Company Is Providing First Rate Customer Service From The Initial Order...To The Delivery!"

"Dr. Weidner: 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 hsa 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 wil be in a position to order one for myself. Thank you for making my job easier. My best to you and your future successes."

"I knew that I found the right place to purchase our new massage chair."

I was ready to order a massage chair from another online vendor but after reading your articles, I decided to check them out further through the Better Business Bureau. Needless to say, they had a few blemishes on their record, which was enough for me not to purchase through them. My budget for a new massage chair was 1600 to $2000. initially. But after much research online (which was difficult to find unbiased opinions) I increased to $3000. Thanks to your wonderful staff, I was greeted so cheerfully by Stephanie who answered all of my questions and promptly checked on price matching and shipping time. I knew that I found the right place to purchase our new massage chair. I just thought you should know how much I appreciate the time and effort you have put into your research and for sharing it with consumers like me, who do not have access otherwise to trying out the chairs before we purchase. Thank you again for all of your help. We cannot wait to receive our new Panasonic massage chair. Sincerely,Lynn DettmanGreen Bay, WI

"Once I Tried The Sogno PLUS No Other Chair Was Good Enough!"

Dr. Weidner, I can not tell you how happy I am that I purchased my Inada Sogno chair from you. Your customer service is second to none. Also your personal attention went beyond what I would expect from an internet store. You do need to tell your customers they should not try the Sogno if they are looking at another chair. After taking the advice of one of your sales persons, I went to a local store and tried several of the chairs I was interested in. Once I tried the Sogno no other chair was good enough! Thank you for everything. You gave me an excellent price, shipping was exactly on the day promised. you arranged for the financing, and overall made this one of the easiest pruchases I have ever made. Thanks Again,Bill PoleraNew Jersey

"This is not an actual review of a massage chair per se,

but more of a testament to Dr. Alan's commitment to customer service after the sale. I've had this chair since May 2015 and it has performed well. About one month ago, one of the back rollers came off of the track. As I moved this chair twice between my homes, I cannot blame the chair quality. Anyway, I called Dr. Alan and he immediately started the ball rolling to get my chair repaired. I was able to secure the parts required for repair and scheduled a technician appointment. True to his word, as usual, Dr Alan covered the labor costs under his lifetime labor policy. I paid a reasonable amount for the part. The chair is working again 100%." Philip TylerNew Jersey

"Thank you for taking care of my Inada Chair.

Even after five years you found a technician to come to my home and troubleshoot a minor problem with the neck section of my chair. I am so thankful I used you to purchase my chair and take care of me."Tom BrimerTX

...Your Price Matching, Which Was Incredibly Easy And Totally In Line With Your Claims, Helped Out.

Thanks for your great service getting us our chair. We purchased the Omega Ion chair and we LOVE it. My wife has chronic back and neck problems so her doctor recomended we purchase a massage chair. Without being rich, we were worried about the expense. But your price matching, which was incredibly easy and totally in line with your claims, helped out. The chair was delivered a weel earlier than expected and our backs are so thankful. My wife uses it evey day and it is making a real difference. The only problem is keeping our friends from coming over at all hours to lounge in it. Thanks for the service and the great product. We're thrilled! Thanks,Tim and Ginny ThompsonMadison, WI

Surprising...You Have Been Great To Deal With"

"Dear Dr. Weidner Thank you for offering the massage chair at an affordable price to your patients. It has been an important investment in our health. We knew the value of the chair because we had already tried one in a specialty store. It was an easy decision to make. I have an on going problem with my neck, shoulders, and lower back, and our chair has proven to be a great way to relieve stress and pain from my neck and spine. I am very glad we purchased it, and use it on a regular basis, almost every day. Customer service was especially surprising, also. During shipment our chair was slightly torn. They were so helpful and nice on the phone and within a short period of time the company delivered a complete new chair to our door and brought it in, unpacked it for us and took the damaged one. Thank you again, Dr. Weidner, for a pleasant and beneficial experience, both by the company, and from you. You have been especially great to deal with."Marilyn Broadhead

"Being involved with college athletics, I was constantly plagued with muscle spasms.

My calves and shoulder blades were especially tight, and would inhibit me from performing my best. In search of relief, I tried medication, therapy, and even surgery. Nothing seemed to give me complete relief. That was until I tried the Human Touch Robotic Massage Chair . The Chair was able to target those hard to reach shoulder muscles with my choice of deep kneading, compression, or percussion strokes. I also enjoyed the manual stretch option on the chair. It provided enough tension to increase range of motion in all of the areas of my back. My favorite feature on the Human Touch Chair is the lower leg massage. After one session, my calves felt like new! In my opinion, the Human Touch Robotic Massage Chair provides complete satisfaction for a price that you can not beat. I would recommend this product to anyone!!"Jennifer Brantly

"Wow! What a chair! The HT-125 Human Touch massage chair that Dr. Weidner introduced me

"Hi Dr. Weidner, This is Lamonte Broadhead calling.

I just wanted to let you know that the purchase of the massage recliner you made available is one of the best investments in our health we have made in a long time. About a month before we read your newsletter with the information about the chair, we had tested one in a specialty store with a price tag of over $3,000.00. We jumped at the chance to buy yours for about $1,000.00 less! We knew it was a great deal. After a hard day's work installing signs, I can sit in the chair for 30 minutes and get a great massage that relaxes me completely. The tension in my back muscles and legs is soon gone because of the different types of movements of the rollers. We use the chair nearly everyday. It is a high quality product that fits nicely into our living room decor. Thank you for making such a valuable product available to your patients." Monte Broadhead

"My telling all the guys he works with to come and get a chair from you!"

I just have to share one thing with you - I have been trying to get my husband to look at those chairs since Christmas. I wanted to get one for him for Christmas and he wouldn't do it. So it was his birthday and father's day and I told him I wanted to get a chair for him. He was very hesitant when I brought him in there. Anyway - he has back and leg issues and he now has used the chair 3 times - and I just talked to him - he works for (company withheld) - and he is telling all the guys he works with to come and get a chair from you - he said they work. He is a great spokesman for your chairs! So - he is sending people in there - some of the guys are under the impression they just vibrate - he told them - it is a full blown massage - and it works.. He made my day - and I want to thank you guys. Please tell Dr. Weidner that I said thank you. Watch for the boys from (company withheld). Thank you so much!!Bonnie HigginsSalt Lake City, Utah

"It Has Truly Improved Our Quality of Life!"

Hi Dr. Weidner, Just wanted to let you know that we are definitely loving our new chair. I apologize for not writing sooner, but we also just started about five new daily therapies for our autistic son, so when we haven't been doing that, we've been IN the chair! The Inada is everything for which I hoped, and more. The customer service was excellent, the chair was easy to operate, and all I do is tell my friends how fantastic this chair has been for us, and how it has been worth every penny. I've even started getting a "Chair-Massage Day" playgroup going for moms of other autistic children, because if anyone deserves a weekly half-hour in this wonderfully relaxing massage chair, it's parents with special-needs kids! Overall, we couldn't be more pleased with EVERYTHING about this amazing chair. You were absolutely right that I would love it. I could go on and on about how therapeutic it has been for all of us. We have improved relaxation, improved energy, more patience- it has truly improved our quality of life, and how often can you say that about a piece of furniture! Many thanks again for all your outstanding customer service, Dr. Weidner! All the best,Dawn HardyMetairie, Louisianna

"I Checked Out Many Places Before I Ordered And You Were Both The Least Expensive And Had The Most Information!

Thank you so very much for making my purchase of the Human Touch Massage Chair so easy! From the beginning to end your contact and support was wonderful! The chair arrived perfectly and exactly when they said it would. I have Fibromyalgia and massage is one thing that helps ease my pain but it is time consuming and expensive to go for a massage every day. I put our new chair in the living room and we have used it everyday. My husband and sons all use it too and think it's wonderful. Your website is wonderful and the free gifts were very useful. Please feel free to use this message on your site as testimony for a satisfied customer! You are the best!

"I bought a Panasonic massage chair over 5 years ago.

I had a problem where it stopped working recently and it was also outside of the warranty. I contacted Massage chair relief to find out who I should contact to get it repaired, and to my surprise, Alan sent a repair technician to repair it for free. Great customer service and support." - Aaron Hansen, Utah "The Lifetime Labor Warranty really works! My chair was over 2 years old so only parts, not labor, were still under warranty from Osaki. Luckily, I purchased the chair from Massage Chair Relief, who offers a lifetime labor warranty. Alan Weidner helped me in my communications with Osaki to ship me a replacement part and followed up with them via email when they were slow to respond. Once I received the part, he found a tech to install the part. It took 3 visits to find and fix the issue; a different part was installed each time but the issue didn’t get fixed until the 3 rd visit. This meant Alan honored the labor warranty 3 times before the issue was identified and fixed! The level of customer service from Alan was top notch and he made the process as easy as possible,responding promptly to my emails, never hesitating to send a tech 3 separate times, and most importantly, he didn’t stop working with me until the issue was fixed, saving me hundreds of dollars in labor. If I purchased the chair from another vendor, I would have either shelled out hundreds of dollars in labor costs or thrown the chair away. Thank you Alan!"Jason LimCalifornia

"The warranty is real! I purchased a massage chair from the online store 3 years ago.

At the time, I had seen some chairs at Costco, and planned to buy one from Costco until I saw better selection on this website. I purchased an Ogawa Refresh chair sight unseen (except for web reviews). At the time of purchase, a lifetime labor warranty was included from the store. I assumed this would be of little use (I have not had good experience with warranties from other stores). Fast forward to 2019, the shoulders of the chair became disconnected. I contacted Dr. Weidner, and he was exceedingly helpful. He had the cost of the repair invoiced directly to him, so I never even saw a bill. I highly recommend this store and the excellent service and warranty. I would not hesitate to purchase another massage chair from this store. You can believe in the lifetime labor warranty!"
