The Price of Massage Chairs
A massage chair is a significant purchase, and you may ask yourself, “Is a massage chair worth it?” It helps if you’ve done your homework before you lay down the payment. Let’s run some numbers to determine the real cost and value of a luxury massage chair.
What Are You Paying for Massage?
If you are accustomed to a weekly massage, and you maybe visit the chiropractor and/or physical therapist every month—which is to say, if you are accustomed to paying for the care and maintenance of your one-and-only body—then you are used to spending $100 to $150 a week (and maybe more depending on where you live) for these services.
At 52 weeks, that puts your expenses at $5,000 to $8,000 per year. Now maybe you don’t go that often. Still, the outlay probably surprises you, even if you are in the habit of paying for it. A top-quality massage chair with the best options and features available will run you $6,000 to $10,000. So, in a little over a year, even the top-of-the-line chair will have paid for itself.
Massage Chair Cost vs. Value
When you consider the value of the chair, in addition to cost, it gets even better. Your massage chair is available 24/7, year-round. Even on weekends or at midnight, your “therapist” is waiting for you. And you spend zero time and nothing on gas or wear-and-tear on your automobile getting to your massage chair. Those costs make your massage chair an even better investment.
Keep this in mind as well: With massage, as with so many things, frequency matters. Just as you wouldn’t exercise once a week and expect to see great results, massage once per month or even once per week is far less effective than more regular intervals of sessions. Most people would choose to see their therapist far more often if it were more cost-effective, convenient and, and less of a demand on time. A good massage chair checks all of these boxes.
Other “Value” Considerations
Other value items are the warranty from top manufacturers and the financing we can offer. We offer a 90-day, risk-free in-home trial, a free 5-year extended warranty, and free delivery on all our chairs. Your initial outlay won’t break the bank, and you’ll have the assurance of a dependable and durable product.
If you’ve never had a massage in your life, well then, you have different metrics. But with a combination of air-cells, stretching movements, and mechanisms working at the same time and in concert with one another vs. two hands from a therapist, a chair can cover more real-estate in a shorter period of time. Perfect for those times when you are in a rush. By any measure, a luxury massage chair is a great investment in your health.
Great Massage Chair Financing Options
For far less than the out-of-pocket costs of visits to massage therapists or other bodywork professionals, you can have a massage chair in your living room…or den…or (better yet) your bedroom.
Even the top massage chairs will cost you less than $200 per month if you qualify for one of our massage chair financing programs. Best of all, most financing programs are offered at ZERO COST to you. For more information, visit our financing options page.
