When we say the “Best”, this is purely subjective, because everyone will think their products are the best. Therefore, the listing will be in no ranking order. This will be our short list of massage chair brands that are reputable and recognized by those in the market as a quality brand. 

We’ll also throw in a few honorable mentions to broaden the list and help you find a massage chair that will fit your needs!

What are the criteria used for this list?

Overall Customer Satisfaction

Reputable brands will likely have many customer feedbacks on their chairs. The brands selected are based on the general consensus online. 

Years Company has been in Business

The massage chair business is definitely for the faint of heart. Any company that has been around for more than 5 years are considered a success. The brands that make it on our list has been around for many years and have established themselves as top players in the industry. They have gotten the business down to the tee and know what it takes to satisfy their customers (or that’s the hope). The warranty the company offers is also a way to gauge the confidence they have in their products. 

Where the massage chair is made

This is a tricky one, as it deserves different answers. There are three ways to look at this to understand why its important.

  • Where the chair is assembled?
  • Where the chair is engineered and designed?
  • Where are the parts made from?

100% Made in China – Many companies will either design, engineer and build their chairs in China. When this is the case, the old school expectation is that the quality and durability will suffer. There is an exception to this rule, as majority of massage chairs sold in the US, are made in China. Many Japanese companies have moved their manufacturing to China and brought along their technology advancements and quality controls. That is why its important to pay attention to the brand that has heavy distribution to consumers for many years. The factory in which the massage chair is sourced is more important than the country its from. There are about two to three main factories in China that are recognized to be top notch factories.  

Joint approach, where companies are likely to adopt one of the following approach  

  • Limit their non-critical components to be handled by China, leaving their designs, engineering and quality control in Japan, Taiwan and/or US. 
  • Fully assembled in their respective countries that are known to have high quality control and outstanding engineering and designs.

They are considered a value brand, but produces quality chairs at a surprisingly high value and are competitive against much more expensive chairs. Here are three of their most popular chairs.

Medical Break Through are based out of California. They offer impressive massage chairs and have been around since 2016. Their massage chairs are backed by professional medical experts who recommends them. On their website, they have a list of doctors, chiropractors and pain specialists who helped design their massage chairs. While they do offer a solid list of massage chairs, they are priced a bit more than the other massage chairs with similiar features. For instance, their Breakthrough 4 is without 3D massage, and it’s priced over $3,500 at the time of this review. You’re likely paying more for their research and innovative designs.
