Most commonly massage chairs are used at home, after all, this is where we spend most of our time. But this is not the only place where they perform well. In the next episode of our vlog we take a look at places where massage chairs can be successfully employed. Paweł mentions these places, discusses international solutions as well as reveals in which unique places you can come across our chairs.
Massage chair at home
Most of our massage chairs are used in houses and apartments, where they look after the well-being of family members, and quite frequently also the guests. Depending on the user’s needs, they can be found in living rooms, bedrooms, gyms, playrooms and even garages (yes, we have actually had such a case :-)) – practically in every possible room… although we haven’t installed it in the bathroom. Yet ;-). You can find the detailed description of the most popular places for a massage chair, their respective advantages and disadvantages, as well as tips for choosing the right place at home in one of our previous articles Massage chair in your house.
Massage chair in the waiting room
Another place where massage chairs appear with great frequency are waiting rooms in the broad sense, where customers, while waiting for the desired service, can sit down, activate the massage, relax and unwind:
- in a car dealership – the massage may prove indispensable for calming the Customer before the final figure for the repair is specified ;-), also for those waiting for maintenance or to pick up the car afterwards,
- in a hairdressing salon and beauty parlour – for clients with hair dye, applied masks and for those waiting for treatment, especially during the delays that sometimes occur – a relaxing massage will be an excellent compensation and can serve as a complementary service,
- in the hotel lobby, but also in the hotel SPA – to increase the satisfaction of the client who waits for the room and during short breaks between business meetings, as well as in the wellness area – for perfect relaxation and rejuvenation,
- in a dentist surgery – massage is perfect for relaxing and calming a frightened patient,
there are delays, but often also an upgrade or an additional service. Typically you will find Massaggio Eccellente 2 or Massaggio Bello 2 massage chairs in the waiting rooms, both of which offer a comprehensive, highly relaxing massage, and at the same time the lack of a foot massager in these models is an advantage – it does not require customers to take off their shoes.
The massage chair in the office relaxation area
More and more often and more eagerly, employers are trying to take care of their staff by providing them with relaxation rooms. Before work or during breaks, employees are granted access to a room with massage chairs and other relaxing equipment. Massage in a massage chair, even a few minutes long, allows for more efficient work by calming down, de-stressing and relieving of tension. It eliminates discomfort and pain arising after long hours of working behind a desk, bringing pleasant relief. You can read about other benefits of short-term recuperation in a massage chair on our dedicated page Chillout Room in your company.
As you see, massage chairs can be used in a wide variety of places, basically anywhere there is a place and some time to relax. So if you are thinking about a massage chair for yourself, for clients or employees and have questions, feel free to contact us.
– Paul, please can you tell me which room is the best to put a massage chair in.
It’s totally your choice, it depends on how you intend to use the massage chair and where you like to relax. Some people find it difficult to choose between the living room and the bedroom. If you put a massage chair in the lounge, it’s convenient for the whole family and your friends when they come to visit. Everyone can use it all the time, however, you won’t always be able to guarantee peace and quiet when you’re relaxing.
– Why would you put a massage chair in the bedroom?
A massage chair in the bedroom is a good solution for somebody who wants privacy and somewhere to relax in a quiet place. It’s also really useful for a quick massage before bedtime and when you wake up in the morning.
– Any other places?
There are plenty, and it depends on your home and imagination. The third most popular place is in a home office, next to a bookshelf or a HIFI system. If you have one, why not beside an indoor pool or in a home gym, or alternatively there’s always a hallway, or we have even been asked to put one in a garage. As I said, it’s entirely up to you.
– How much space should I save for a massage chair?
For the majority of massage chairs, about 1 meter by 2 meters, which is the space you need for the reclined position. Compact models should need less space and can go in smaller rooms. If you have a massage chair with zero wall function, this helps significantly when you’re deciding where to put it.
– Can I move it by myself?
Some of the models, yes. They should have wheels underneath, so it should be easy to move them if you don’t have to use stairs. However, be advised that wheels can damage some floor surfaces. In this case and with larger chairs or moving between different levels, you will need some assistance.
– Can I just plug them straight into an electric socket?
There is no battery inside, so you need to plug it in. It’s interesting to note that massage chairs have very low power consumption, because they can operate between 100 and 200 Watts. Using all the functions on the larger models, only consumes 200 W which is 5 times less than a microwave.
