What features do you prefer most?
Before considering the features, you first need to consider why you are buying the chair in the first place. Do you want a chair to sit comfortably in while watching TV? Or do you want it specifically for massage purposes. Some chairs provide excellent massages but are not designed for sitting for longer periods and can be quite uncomfortable if used in this way. If you are experiencing foot pains, you could choose a massage chair with foot rollers rather than air bags. Some chairs come with a helpful heat therapy feature to make the massage even more effective. The latest models of massage chair have an interesting Zero Gravity Feature which gives you a position where you experience weightlessness which is great for comfort, blood circulation and heart health.
