This chair by BestMassage is the cheapest zero gravity chair we’ve ever seen. That’s quite a bold statement, but it’s true.
BestMassage is an Amazon exclusive brand. They are not to be confused with the retailer store front bestmassage.com. They mainly sell massage chairs and tables.
Although it does not include foot rollers, this cheap zero gravity massage chair is jam-packed with features like zero gravity, air compression massage with heat, and many massage modes. They are also pretty confident with this chair because they offer 100% satisfaction guarantee refund.
Let’s dive into the features and benefits.
Benefits and Features
The first thing you notice about this chair is that it is slim. It’s not one of those bulky massage chairs that don’t fit through doors and require the help of 3 strong individuals. This is especially nice for those who live in narrow hall way apartments (like me).
You would think that an affordable zero gravity chair would not have an L-track. But it does. It will massage from your upper back all the way down to your butt. There are two pairs of rollers that use move across this track to ultimately provide the massage.
Although the description says there are 7 massage modes, there are actually 6 (kneading, rock, shiatsu, tapping, knocking, and kneading & tapping. They count air pressure and heating as one which is technically true.
The air compression massage feels good. The air bags are located in the seat (to target hips and butt) and in the thighs and calves.
The transition into zero gravity is smooth and makes you feel weightless. This gives several health benefits like decompressing your spine and lowering your blood pressure. It’s one of the more sought out features and it’s a bargain to get it at this price!
The control panel or what I consider an embedded remote is located on the right side of the arm rest. It’s pretty simple, it has a couple buttons and a usb charging port for those who want to charge their phone. My only gripe is that the usb port position is facing upwards instead of sideways, which is typically more natural and doesn’t put stress on the cord.
Although a lot smaller, this massage chair accommodate taller people (6 feet 2 inches +) pretty adequately. You might have to slightly adjust yourself by sitting more upright to get the most of the rollers. On the flip side, if it’s too strong you can always dampen it with a towel.
The massage itself is pretty strong to the point where you might get sore if you’re not used to it. Also the heat does get pretty warm so be prepared for that.
The headrest is removable. It’s a great option for those who prefer a deeper massage.
Many customers who have herniated lumbar discs or sciatica report this eases and relieves their pain.
One thing we caution people is that this company only delivers curb side. They offer a premium service (white glove delivery) for additional price. So you if you don’t want to pay extra, make sure you are prepared when it arrives.
The bluetooth speakers are so-so and are nice for setting up an ambiance. I prefer silence but those who have noisy surroundings can drown out the background noise with your favorite tunes.
