You can’t buy a mattress without testing it or checking it out which involves lying down in a comfortable position and being convinced that that’s the one for you! Isn’t it the same with a massage chair?
This report borders on the funny but we can totally go with it! A Japanese customer checking out massage chairs accidentally went into ‘snooze mode’ and woke up to discover that he was in a locked store with lights out! After frantically calling the police who traced the shop manager, the customer was released from ‘custody’ with an apologetic shop manager and an equally apologetic and red-faced customer facing off against each other. The police must have had the last laugh for sure. At best, it can simply be an awesome promotional tactic for the store’s collection of massage chairs.
It’s not difficult to understand why this happened. Most electronics and furnishing stores are pretty well laid out in the sense that there are enough samples of each item for customers to touch and feel for functionality, versatility, features and price. Japanese stores are renowned for the large number of floor models on display in their shop fronts.
A simple chair is designed to provide easy access and comfort for the head, neck and shoulders; a robotic version of a massage chair uses electronic motors and vibrators that simulate the massage experience. Traditional massage therapists offer onsite massages to clients in their homes, at clinics, business offices etc.
These chairs are meant for total relaxation and there are several models to choose from, so all the more reason that you spend extra care and attention while purchasing one.
There are many aspects to consider while buying a massage chair but from a customer’s perspective, asking these simple questions can help narrow down choices.
• Will the seller help in making informed choices based on suitability, need and price options?
• Can I be assured of trouble-free home delivery and installation without additional charges?
• Is adequate warranty coverage there and can I easily enforce it?
• Will I be assured of hassle-free, onsite service for maintenance and repairs?
Investing in a massage chair is an investment for health, relaxation and rejuvenation. Hence, you should expect not only a completely satisfying buying experience but an equally rewarding usage experience. Equally, following instructions for usage, maintenance and handling is vital as wrong usage can lead to unwanted injuries or other health problems, which was the single most important reason for investing in a massage chair in the first place.
