How often can you use a massage chair?


It’s important to know how often you can use a massage chair to make it effective and fully functional. A massage in the chair involves pleasant, but fairly intense, pressure on the muscles. Paweł explains how many massages per day should be done to make them even more relaxing.

Before purchasing a massage chair, a common question arises:

How many times a day can you massage yourself?

According to general recommendations, traditional massage is advised two to three times a week, lasting an hour each. A massage chair should not be used more than three times a day. There are no limits to the frequency of massage, but as with everything, it should not be overdone. Everyone has their own individual tolerance limits. Some people may enjoy the benefits of frequent sessions in a massage chair, while others feel fully relaxed after just one session every two days. Our body itself will indicate how often we can massage.


Automatic programs in massage chairs typically last from 15 to 20 minutes. This is enough time to relieve body tension and take care of your well-being. It’s worth remembering, as too long a session can even lead to soreness. There are also massage chairs with automatic programs that last 5-7 minutes (Demo program in Massaggio Eccellente 2, Quick Massage in Fujiiryoki chairs), and even 30 minutes. They are properly programmed – featuring phases such as introduction (warming up), proper massage, and relaxation (calming down).

Moreover, the cyclical nature of the massage is also very important. Thanks to regular sessions in a massage chair, the massage will be more effective, become an excellent way to reduce emerging ailments, and lead to long-lasting effects.


Any time is good for a massage. The most important thing is to find the right massage suited to the time of day. In the morning, after waking up, the massage awakens and then adds energy and sets a positive tone for the coming day. An automatic stretching program that “stretches” our sleepy muscles for us might be great. During the day, for those lucky enough to have a massage chair at work, a quick massage will eliminate tensions from the back or neck, rejuvenate the body, and increase efficiency. And if you find time for a calm massage in the evening, it will be the perfect way to quiet down and relax. The massage chair will gently loosen the muscles and prepare you for sleep. You decide the type of massage by choosing the appropriate program.


There are no limits; there are models that, if “overheated”, will turn off and “rest”, then are ready to work again. For example, a four-member family, where each member uses the chair daily, twice for 20 minutes each time – the chair is designed to handle such a load. Moreover, guests can also use it :)

Chairs in hotel SPAs or gyms, where they work continuously for several hours in a row, are much more frequently used. This is a much heavier load than in domestic use. In this case, we recommend extending the warranty to include commercial use, which ensures an express service response.

Now you know how many massages a day the chair can perform and how long you can massage. And if you have any more questions or are wondering which massage chair to choose – contact us.


Paul, how many times a day can I use a massage chair?

It can depend on how accustomed you are to having a massage.

Ok, so once we get used to it, how often should we use it?

Manufacturers don’t suggest a limit, because we are all different and have individual requirements, so we need to be sensible. Normally we advise 2 or 3 massage sessions per day. Each session takes about 15-20 minutes.

In some models there are automatic sessions with 30 min. programmes. They start slowly to warm up the muscles before moving to the main massage and then slow down at the end.

The cyclical nature of the massage is also really important. Thanks to regular sessions in the massage chair, massage will be more effective and can have long-term effects.

Would you suggest that there is a good time of the day to use a massage chair?

Any time is a good time for a massage, you can use the chair whenever you want to.
In the morning – after waking up, use it to stretch your body a bit.
During a break at work – to help to regenerate productivity.
To chill out before sleep – there are special auto programmes which are really useful just before you turn off the light.

So it will work ok, if you use it several times throughout the day?

After use, some models automatically turn off for a few minutes so they don’t get overheated. For home use, even for the whole family there is no risk of overworking it.
In SPA’s, gyms and hotels where massage chairs are in constant use, they generally don’t have problems, but in these cases, we advise extending a business warranty.
