11 Best Massage Chairs In Malaysia 2020 (Reviews & Prices)

Decided to get the best massage chair in Malaysia 2020? It will certainly be worth your money if you want to spend more time at home. And less time making regular trips to your nearest massage center!

However, massage chair prices can hit your wallet significantly. And most companies do not offer trade-ins for older models.

So that’s where this list of massage chair reviews will come in useful!

Types Of Massage Chairs

Massage chairs can be categorized according to their design:

  • Ottoman – chair with a footstool
  • Seat pad – doesn’t require you to buy a whole chair
  • Full body – for a whole body massage
  • Recliner – most common type
  • Zero Gravity – one step above the recliner, provides relief for pain in your back and legs!

1. Massage Styles

A massage chair will use rollers along tracks to simulate professional massages by a human masseuse!

2. Roller Heads

  • 2D – Horizontal and vertical movements only
  • 3D –  For deep tissue massages with variable intensity
  • 4D – Additional feature of variable speed like a real massage!

3. Roller Tracks

  • S-track – Follows your spine, stopping at your tailbone. Many massage chairs will have this.
  • L-track – The same as an S-track but gets to your glutes and hamstrings too!
  • Straight – Doesn’t follow the curvature of your spine. Thus, missing your neck and lower back!

Benefits Of A Massage Chair

Even if you have the best gaming chair in your home:

There are many health benefits to having your own massage chair besides getting to use it whenever you want! In the comfort of your own home!

Here’s a few:

  • Relaxation (reducing stress!)
  • Better blood circulation
  • Treatment for certain conditions (e.g. fibromyalgia, diabetes, arthritis)
  • Relieving pain (thus improving posture) in your back, neck, shoulders, etc

Just a thought:

Could your recent back pain (or neck pain) mean that it’s time to switch to the best mattress or pillow?

How To Choose The Best Massage Chair

1. Home Space

It’s no secret that massage chairs can be massive! Taking up the space of a sofa bed or even a treadmill!

And you cannot easily pack them away either!

You should be taking clearance into account too! Some chairs need space to extend.

2. Fit

If you’re shorter or taller than the average person:

Double check the dimensions! Especially how far the foot rest can go! Ideally, try the chair out in the store!

3. Type of Massage

Depending on the model you get, it may be capable of several massage techniques:

  • Tapping – For improving blood circulation
  • Kneading – Helps with muscle tension and pain
  • Rolling – Relaxing, also helps with muscle tension
  • Japanese Shiatsu – Targets stress points, relieves muscles
  • Heated
  • Muscle stretch

4. Trusted Brand

Pick a brand that has been making quality massage chairs for many years.

But most importantly, whichever brand you choose:

They should have a long warranty for their product. And reputable customer service!

5. Budget

Reliable massage chairs will require you to fork out at least RM2,600.

In fact, prices for this luxury item can climb up to an alarming RM17,000 as well!

6. Important Features To Consider:

6.1. Massage Power (Intensity)

Adjustable Intensity will enable all members of your household to use the massage chair!

6.2. Massage Rollers

As we mentioned earlier, the movement of the rollers matters. Fancier models feel like you’re getting a massage from a real masseuse!

6.3. Heat Massage

Don’t underestimate the benefits of a heated massage! It encourages muscles to relax. And blood flow!

6.4. Body Scan Technology

This feature saves you the trouble of having to adjust the chair every time someone else uses it! Get a customized massage just for you!

6.5. Zero Gravity

For the ultimate relaxation! You can give your whole body a break (from its own weight) with a massage chair with this capability!

6.6. Many More Features A Massage Chair Can Come With:

  • Acupressure points
  • Foot massages
  • Vibration
  • Silent
  • Head massage
  • Air bag compression
  • Material – faux or real leather?
  • Cup holder
