In your quest to find the perfect model, you may come across hundreds of different massage chairs available, with prices ranging from less than €1,100 to as much as €9,300, and our portfolio isn’t different in this respect ;-) Indeed, there are massage chair models on the market, such as the Lamborghini chair, which requires you to pay up to €30,000. In the video below, Paweł gives a brief overview of the market, characterises the massage chair groups and their price ranges.
The prices of massage chairs depend on a number of factors; the most important one, by far, is the number of functions available in a particular model. The more functions we have available in a massage chair, the more advanced they are and the more complex the chair, the higher its price tag is likely to be. The quality, design and country of manufacture also have a direct impact on the price of a massage chair. The most expensive massage chairs come from Japan, where their production first began and where technological boundaries and unsurpassed massage quality have been defined. Increasingly innovative solutions and improved craftsmanship also position production from China or Korea in the high price bracket. Thus, we have a full price range of massage chairs here: from the cheapest, compact ones to hi-end, technologically advanced designs. The only well-known European chair manufacturer from Spain – the Keyton – focuses on the quality of the finish and customised orders, as well as completely distinctive design. This consistently places it in the mid to higher price bracket.
Something à la massage chair
To begin with, it’s necessary to realise that ‘massage chairs’ priced at around €500 are actually massage mats on a frame. Most commonly, these types of devices use spinning balls or vibration. These devices are usually not of the highest quality and are therefore unreliable and not at all similar to massage chairs. Instead of opting for such a design, why not buy a much cheaper massage mat and use it on your own chair or armchair? Therefore, if you’re looking for a massage chair, it’s advisable to ask before buying one whether it delivers massage through massaging arms that mimic the movements of a masseur’s hands. The massage chair you’re after must have a massage mechanism that mimics the movements of the hands, rather than rubbing against your muscles in a random fashion.
Economy class massage chairs
The next segment of massage chairs welcomes you with prices ranging from around € 1,000 to € 3,000. Here we find models with essential functions, the so-called massage core that every massage chair should offer. Even the most basic model, the Massaggio Piccolo, comes equipped with a massage mechanism that actually imitates the movements of a masseur’s hands.
However, the more expensive they are, the more options are available. In the Massaggio Bello 2 massage chair, for instance, we get the option of massaging ourselves in the Zero Gravity position, previously found only in more expensive models. Another one, Massaggio Eccellente offers foot and forearm massage. What’s more, the calves and thighs are massaged by airbags in these models.
The mid-range class of massage chairs
The price climbs above € 3,500, and along with it comes a wealth of functionalities and features. In this category, massage chairs have already taken on more designer shapes and are gaining innovative features such as Zero Gravity, Zero Wall or roller foot massage. Functions such as the kneading calf massage (Massaggio Esclusivo 2) are also introduced. Here we already have a complete set of airbags, a stretching massage and numerous other additions, such as heating and magnetotherapy, which enhance the feeling of relaxation and make each massage session more enjoyable.
Designer massage chairs
Another category of massage chairs is more akin to the interiors and furniture market, where great attention is paid to design, style, construction, usefulness and personalisation of the look to meet the client’s specific requirements. Our offer in this category includes chairs from the only European manufacturer – the Keyton brand – which successfully delivers massage chairs that please the eye of the greatest aesthetes. They make use of classical and beautiful curves, top grain leather and a fully customisable, high-quality finish.
Due to the customised, non-prefabricated designs, the use of wood and high-quality natural leathers, prices rise to around €4,500. If you wish to have your chair to be 100% personalised and unique, the price can continue to rise indefinitely… ;)
High-end massage chairs
In this segment, we’re already talking about the most technologically advanced massage chairs. The Stravagante 2 model offers a precise 3D massage, a stretching function or an advanced airbag massage. The next model in this group, the Fujiiryoki JP2000, is the brainchild of Japanese experts. In order to give the perfect massage, it uses an artificial intelligence algorithm whose precision, accuracy and fine-tuned massage techniques have amazed many a professional masseur. In addition, the craftsmanship of these models is second to none.
In the price range of over €5,000, every single movement of the massage mechanism is extremely precise, the massage chair “feels” the muscles even better, we can specify and adapt the individual pressures to suit our needs perfectly, we can choose from a variety of techniques and we can be sure to enjoy the world’s best, legendary craftsmanship and top massage quality.
Our product range includes massage chairs from all price ranges, each of which can be tested in one of our showrooms and you can see the difference between them first hand. You can also use our Comparison tool, available on the product pages, where – and this is very important – you’ll be able to compare not only the price, but also the features of individual massage chairs. And if you need any help in choosing your ideal model or have any questions after reading this entry, feel free to contact us.
Paul, I have seen that you have lots of different kinds of massage chairs. Please can you tell me more about them.
We offer several brands which differ in ways of design and technology and of course price.
Let me begin with the compact group. We would describe these as our starter models. They have massaging arms in the back-rest, which provide a simple massage, air massage for just the legs (not the feet) and some chairs recline. The pros are that they are small, so they fit almost anywhere.
That is really interesting, what about the cost?
Starter models begin at around a 1000 euros. Then we have the mid-range group. They have all the elements of the compact models but they are a bit bigger and have many more functions and features. They can scan your spine and massage down to hip level. They all recline, have heating systems and some have rollers for the feet. This is an innovative group and the price of these massage chairs can range from 2000 to 4000 euros.
Tell me about your most expensive models?
We have a high-end group which has an extremely accurate massage system with 3D or even 5D functions. They have a sophisticated detection system; an option which stretches the whole body; dozens of massage airbags; mind massage systems and even an AI algorithm which independently recognises the level of muscle stiffness and provides appropriate strength. They are big and quite heavy, but suit all body frames, large and small.
Are there any others?
We have a specific brand which is more stylish than the others. They can be made in natural leather, in any colour and can look like a piece of furniture in your lounge. However, we need to remember that this means a massage on this kind of chair will be a bit softer and there will be fewer functions available.
The chairs I have described are the most popular and will fit the needs of the majority of people, however, It is an open market. For example, we can find modern, futuristic designs for superhero fans or massage chairs designed for Lamborghini owners.
