Are RELAXONCHAIR and REALRELAX Massage Chairs Good?

Great affordable chairs!

In recent years, there have been many new massage chair brands hitting the market. The chairs are much more affordable and advertised to have comparable features as other known brands.

Two of the most popular off-brands include RelaxonChair and RealRelax.

Why should I consider them?

With the off-brand chairs, they are more affordable for consumers. Massage chairs were often seen as a luxury item due to its high price tag. However, with massage chairs like RelaxonChair and RealRelax, you’re able to afford a decent chair at an affordable price. You can even find massage chairs starting as low as $500! 

The TGR Process

In two weeks, I was able to narrow down my search after comparing the massage chairs based on specific criteria that were important to me. The selected massage chairs required to have great reviews from consumers. Each merchants carried different massage chairs,  so I took those into consideration as well.

Are they worth it?

While conducting the search for my next massage chair, I spent a lot of time reading and talking to people in the Massage Chair industry. During my research, RelaxonChair and RealRelax were often at the top of my off-brand list. I even almost purchased a RelaxonChair massage chair before going with the Osaki brand.

It is worth it if your budget is your only constraint or you’re just looking for a massage chair that you’ll use casually. You should be able to find a really good massage chair for $1,500 to $2,000 that may have comparable features as a name brand chair that could cost about $3,000. 

With budget chairs, they may have enticing marketing, but understand that the company still has to make money and it’s very likely there’s a tradeoff somewhere. You shouldn’t expect a $500 chair to have the same type of massage rollers as a $1,500 massage chair.  

On the flip side, you may just be looking to get a massage chair that you can enjoy occassionally and not spend a whole lot of money. With that being said, it’s very well worth it. Not everyone is an ethusiastic that needs all of the latest technology and is happy with just a massage chair for relaxation. 

The only thing that drew me away from purchasing an off-brand massage chair is because I was able to get the Osaki 4-D Paragon Massage Chair. If you’re going to spend thousands of dollars, I would suggest looking at a manufacturer that have been around for a long time and you know they will around to support you when there’s issues with your chair many years later. If taken good care of, a massage chair can last up to 15 to 20 years.  

A 60 minute massage at a professional spa can cost between $70 to $100. This may not even include tip. If you’re looking at it from this perspective, you can get your monies worth after a few sessions in your new massage chair.

The RelaxonChair company is based out of Anaheim, California and is a registered medical device facility with FDA. I spoke to their sales manager weeks ago, and they were very knowledgable with their products. Very professional and transparent with how they build their chairs. Apparently, they are built in China and shipped to their California warehouse for inspection before it reaches the customer’s hands.

RelaxonChair have also been responsive via email and offers 3 year warranty for their products. Many off-brand chairs only offer 1 year warranty. For these reasons, you should have confidence in purchasing a RelaxonChair massage chair. Their reviews online have been pretty solid, most with 4 out of 5 star ratings and thousands of reviews from verified buyers. If they continue on the up-trend, they will start to be recognize as a serious brand in the market if not already.
