Shopping for a massage chair is a daunting task. The market is so flooded with different brands and models that figuring out the best massage chair is impossible.

But you’re in luck… We rounded up the best massage chair from all the top brands to show you which is the best massage chair overall and, more importantly, which is right for you. Stick with us, and we’ll show you what each model offers regarding features, quality, and overall massage experience. Then, we’ll leave you with what we feel is the best massage chair currently on the market.

How We Chose Our Best Massage Chair Reviews

Have you ever wondered, “who makes the best massage chair?” This article is for you.

After picking apart the vast world of massage chairs, we compiled a list of the world’s best massage chair brands. These are reputable brands known for creating quality products and who back them up with excellent warranties and customer support. We intentionally excluded the “fly-by-night” brands here today and gone tomorrow. You work too hard for your money to buy a chair from a shady company that might not be there for you in the future.

We looked at every model offered by each brand and selected what we feel is the best massage chair they make. Many of the models we chose are top-shelf offerings from each brand featuring the latest technologies and most advanced features.

While some of the chairs are the particular brand’s most expensive models, the specific chairs we selected were not based solely on price. Rather, we wanted to find each brand’s absolute best massage chair regardless of price to ultimately discover the best massage chair overall.

You’ll notice that most of the massage chairs we chose have similar features. This is likely due to the competitive nature of the massage chair industry — each brand is gunning to be the best, and as a result, they all end up with remarkably similar chairs.

It’s often difficult to discern the difference between similarly priced massage chairs from different brands. And that’s exactly why we created this guide — we’re comparing apples to apples, so you don’t have to.

Because many of the best massage chair models have similar spec sheets, we’ve highlighted only the standout features that make each chair unique. For your convenience, we’ve also included a list of each chair’s most important features and components.

Now, without further ado, we present the best massage chairs from the top brands in the industry.

Our Pick: Cozzia Qi Massage Chair

Our Pick
Cozzia Qi Zero Gravity Massage Chair
5.0

With exclusive technologies such as 4D Vario Motion Robot massage rollers, Chair Doctor scanning technology, and its own dedicated Apple iPad app, the Cozzia Qi gives you everything you could ever want in a massage chair.

Check Latest Price Our Review

Clocking in at over $13,000, the Cozzia Qi is by far the most expensive massage chair on our list. In fact, at the time of this writing, the Cozzia Qi is likely the most expensive massage chair in the entire world. But does that mean it’s the best?

Arguably, yes.

Brown Color, Cozzia Qi Massage Chair, Right View

The Cozzia Qi has more advanced technology infused into every component and feature than any other chair in existence. It’s also one of the newest chairs on the market, so it hasn’t been around long enough for a high number of user reviews to come in. Still, five-figure price or not, the Cozzia Qi is currently at the pinnacle of massage chair design and technology.

Let’s look at a few of the features that make the Cozzia Qi the one-of-a-kind chair it is.

Regarding massage components, the Cozzia Qi has all other chairs beat. It uses a brand-new roller system designed by Cozzia called “4D Vario Motion Rollers.” These are primarily 3D rollers with the added dimension of speed control, making them 4D.

Heated Roller, Cozzia Qi, Massage Types
Chair Doctor, Cozzia Qi, Massage Types
Roller, Cozzia Qi, Massage Types

But what really sets these rollers apart is the addition of heat — the rollers themselves are heated, simulating the warm hands of a massage therapist.

You may think that the Cozzia Qi rollers sound similar to the other massage chairs on our list. But the defining factor of the Cozzia Qi is how it utilizes the rollers in its revolutionary massage program that Cozzia calls “The Chair Doctor.”

The Chair Doctor massage program is the defining feature of the Cozzia Qi. It uses an elaborate scanning system that measures not only your body shape and height but also special biometric sensors to accurately assess your body’s current levels of stress and tension.

An integral component of the Chair Doctor system is what Cozzia calls the “Body Pain Sensor” — a joystick device that you grip with your hand during the scanning phase of the Chair Doctor program.

Using information from the scan such as your body temperature and heart rate, the Chair Doctor program generates a “tension score” and automatically designs a custom massage program to bring you personalized relief.

No other massage chair in existence features such an advanced scanning system, and no other chair can generate as customized of a massage program as the Cozzia Qi.

While the chair features 13 automatic massage programs and a full suite of manual mode controls, the Chair Doctor technology renders these features practically obsolete.

So if your primary motivation for buying a massage chair is pain and tension relief, no chair will satisfy your needs like the Cozzia Qi. We know the $13,000 price tag is a huge shock, but if you want the best massage chair worldwide, invest in the Cozzia Qi.

To learn more about Cozzia Qi’s other features, check out our full-length review, where we closely examine each component.

Highlights of the Cozzia Qi Massage Chair

  • iPad mini included with purchase
  • Cozzia Qi app
  • Chair Doctor Technology
  • Biometric body scanning system
  • 4D Vario Motion heated massage rollers
  • 32-inch S-track
  • Full body air massage

Recommended For: Anyone looking for an easy-to-use massage chair that has a 47-inch SL-Track Roller System, numerous massage options, and Bluetooth capability.

The Osaki OS-Pro Maxim is one of Osaki’s best-selling chairs. It’s a real full-body massage chair with L-Track roller massage, air massage, foot rollers, and Zero Gravity recline, among other popular features.

Aside from its extensive massage coverage, the most unique feature of the Osaki OS-Pro Maxim is its touchscreen tablet remote control. All of the chair’s functions and programs are easily controlled through an intuitive touchscreen interface making on-the-fly adjustments incredibly easy.

Although the Osaki OS-Pro Maxim isn’t the most expensive massage chair made by Osaki, we feel it offers the best blend of features, user-friendly design, and overall value for the price.

Osaki Japan Premium 4S

Made entirely in Japan, the Osaki Japan Premium massage chairs are among the most expensive available, but you really do get what you pay for.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

Unsurprisingly, Osaki massage chairs landed on our list twice — they’re among the most popular and reputable massage chair companies. 

But this chair — the Osaki Japan Premium 4S — is part of an entirely different product line than the previously mentioned Osaki OS-Pro Maxim. It isn’t even technically made by Osaki. Allow us to explain.

While most Osaki massage chairs are made in China, the Osaki Japan Premium 4S is made entirely in Japan by Fuji Medical Instruments, also known as Fujiiryoki, one of Japan’s oldest and leading massage chair brands.

Massage chairs in Japan are made to much higher standards than Chinese-made massage chairs and are known to last much longer — up to 25 years.

The Osaki Japan Premium 4S is the number one best-selling massage chair in Japan, the world’s most competitive massage chair market. And that’s why it made our list. It’s built to an incredibly high standard and is a top contender for the overall best massage chair.

4D Massage Roller, Osaki Japan Premium Massage Chair, Massage Types

But besides the high quality, a lot makes it so unique.

First, the Osaki Japan Premium 4S uses a unique style of 3D massage rollers that perform what’s known as Kiwami Mecha dimensional kneading. The ball-shaped roller heads can extend up to 4.9 inches to provide true deep-tissue massage techniques.

Additionally, you can adjust the intensity of the massage rollers with 12 strength levels available. And thanks to a unique “double sensing” body scan system, the roller massage functions of the chair are customized to each user.

4D AirBags, Osaki Japan Premium Massage Chair, Massage Types

Now, with so many massage techniques and programs, it might seem not easy to keep everything straight.

Secondly, the Osaki Japan Premium 4S has more massage techniques and automatic massage programs than any other chair — 41 massage techniques and 20 auto programs. If you’re a fan of variety, you’ll always have plenty of massage options with the Osaki Japan Premium 4S.

But thanks to a touchscreen remote, all the chair’s functions and programs are at your fingertips. A few swipes and taps, and you’re on your way to a highly therapeutic massage.

4D Massage Program, Osaki Japan Premium Massage Chair, Massage Types

Since the Osaki Japan Premium 4S is made in Japan and comes with many massage options, it’s one of the more expensive massage chairs on our list. But if you’re looking for a chair that will last longer than most other available chairs, the Osaki Japan Premium 4S is a great investment.

For more information about the Osaki Japan Premium 4S and Osaki’s other Japanese-made massage chairs, check out our in-depth article.

Highlights of the Osaki Japan Premium 4S

  • 4D massage rollers (3 + speed adjustment).
  • 31-inch S-Track.
  • Kiwami Mecha dimensional kneading.
  • Upper shoulder massage roller extension.
  • Double-sensing body scan.

Titan Pro-Executive Massage Chair
4.6

As one of the most affordable full-body massage chairs with 3D rollers plus air massage, foot rollers, and a built-in speaker system, the Titan Pro Executive brings a lot to the table and delivers a great back massage.

Check Latest Price

The Titan Pro Executive massage chair is one of the hottest deals around. It’s relatively new to the market but has already received the best massage chair ratings.

It’s smack-dab in the middle of the massage chair price spectrum but delivers a wide array of high-end features. Not only is it one of the best massage chairs for the price, but it’s also one of the best. Period.

For example, the Titan Pro Executive is one of the only massage chairs under $4,000 to feature true 3D massage rollers. The rollers extend up to 4.7 inches and allow you to adjust the intensity of the massage techniques. On top of that, it has a longer-than-average S-Track measuring 32 inches, providing massage coverage from the neck all the way down the back to the base of the tailbone.

Aside from the superb back massage functions, the Titan Pro Executive also features triple-row spinning massage rollers for the feet. Another unique aspect of the Pro Executive is that in addition to lumbar heating, it’s the only massage chair we know of that has infrared heating for the knees. So if you work on your feet all day, the foot rollers and knee heat therapy of the Titan Executive Pro will be of great value.

Highlights of the Titan Pro Executive

  • 3D rollers.
  • 32-inch S-Track.
  • Body scan technology.
  • Three-stage Zero Gravity.
  • Built-in speakers in the head.
  • Triple-row foot rollers.
  • Full body air massage.
  • Lumbar and knee heat therapy.
  • Armrests move with the chair as you recline.
  • Chromotherapy lights.
  • 5 massage techniques.
  • 6 auto massage programs.
  • Custom massage memory functions.

Apex AP-Pro Lotus Faux Leather Massager Chair Beige
4.6

Affordable, with a great selection of customization options and one of the longest S-Tracks on the market.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

The Apex AP Pro Lotus has many of the same popular features as the other chairs on our list — S-Track, full body air massage, Zero Gravity, foot rollers, etc. — but has a few uncommon features that elevate it to a new level.

Perhaps the most unexpected feature of the Apex AP Pro is its negative ion generator. This small device in the chair’s headrest is a special type of air purifier that uses negative ions to clean the air extremely efficiently, removing particles too small for regular filters.

This provides a constant stream of fresh air to create a more holistic and therapeutic environment to enjoy your massage.

Like most full body massage chairs, the Apex AP Pro has airbags in the leg ottoman that provide leg and foot massage. However, the AP Pro has a series of magnets attached to the airbags in the ottoman to add magnetic therapy to complement the air massage. Magnetic therapy is thought to help increase circulation, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation.

The Apex AP Pro comes with a handheld remote, but an app for iOS and Android allows you to control the chair from your phone to make the chair even easier to use. Bluetooth technology syncs your phone with the chair to use the app and play music through the chair’s built-in speakers.

To learn more about the features of Apex AP Pro, check out our full review.

Highlights of the Apex AP Pro Lotus

  • Negative ion generator
  • Magnetic therapy for legs and feet
  • S-Track
  • Body scan technology
  • Two-stage Zero Gravity
  • Mechanical dual foot rollers
  • Custom massage memory functions
  • Spring-loaded ottoman

Ogawa Smart Sense 3D Zero Gravity Massage Chair

Recommended For: Hobbyists looking for a variety of massage programs and for those who suffer from chronic back pain.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

If technology excites you, then the best massage chair for you is likely the Ogawa Smart 3D. It’s infused with advanced technology at practically every stop, making the chair one of the easiest and most satisfying.

First, instead of a regular remote, the Ogawa Smart 3D has an Android Tablet with a custom-designed remote control app pre-installed. Using the app, you have total control over the programming of the chair’s massage functions.

Every little detail of the massage can be adjusted to meet your needs. And the best part is that, in the app, you can create an unlimited number of user profiles, each with its programming and preferences. This allows everyone who uses the chair to enjoy a customized massage with little effort quickly.

Through the tablet and app, the Ogawa Smart 3D massage chair also features a self-diagnostic and repair program. If there’s ever an issue with the chair, run the program, and you’ll be able to see exactly what’s wrong, along with steps to fix it.

3D Noise Reduction, Ogawa Smart 3D, Left View

A standard issue with massage chairs, particularly those with full-body air massage, is that the motors that power the components can be noisy. The Ogawa Smart 3D solves this problem with patented noise reduction technology. 

A “whisper quiet” air pump is suspended inside the chair with springs to eliminate any noisy vibration.

With so much technology packed into the chair, it would seem that the Ogawa Smart 3D would be one of the most expensive chairs on the market. But thankfully, it’s not. At just under $7,000, it’s far from the cheapest but is considerably less costly than the other high-end chairs on our list. Keep an eye out for the Ogawa Smart 3D, as it’s high in the running for the best massage chair ever.

Highlights of the Ogawa Smart 3D

  • Includes Android tablet and remote control app
  • Self-diagnostic and repair app
  • Unlimited user profiles

Luraco i7 Massage Chair
4.7

Recommended For: Anyone looking for one of the most technologically advanced massage chairs that money can buy today.

Check Latest Price Read Detailed Review

The Luraco i7 iRobotics is an oddity in the massage chair industry. Why? It’s one of — if not the only — massage chair made in the United States.

So if you’re a fan of shopping local, the Luraco i7 iRobotics is designed and built in Dallas, Texas — about as local as a massage chair can get (if you live in the U.S., that is).

But beyond being made in the U.S., the Luraco i7 iRobotics massage chair is loaded with advanced technologies so it couldn’t be left off our list of the best massage chair to buy.

The iRobotics massage chair is one of the first massage chairs to feature a smartphone-like touchscreen remote control. The remote fits in the palm of your hand and uses an interface that will feel very familiar to anyone who’s ever used an iPhone or Android phone. With the remote, you can create up to five user profiles so each user can store their massage preference for quick access in the future.

Similar to the Ogawa Smart 3D massage chair, the Luraco i7 iRobotics utilizes a noise reduction system to keep the sound of the motors to a minimum for a more peaceful massage experience.

Remote, Luraco Massage Chair i7, Mobile App

Something that we’ve only seen offered on the Luraco i7 iRobotics massage chair is leather touch points. While the majority of the chair’s upholstery is high-quality synthetic leather, the parts of the chair with which your skin comes into contact are made of genuine leather. You get the best of both worlds — the durability and easy cleaning of synthetic leather combined with the luxuriously soft feel of real leather.

Furthermore, it is designed with the unique purpose of helping athletes recover quickly from strenuous workouts.

When you look at the Human Touch Novo XT’s spec sheet, you’ll notice that it has many of the same features as most of the high-end massage chairs on our list. But there are a few exceptions that set the Novo XT apart from the pack.

L Track, Human Touch Novo XT, Side View

First, the Novo XT has one of the longest L-Tracks on the market — 50 inches. It’s built with a “Unibody” design which allows the 3D massage rollers to travel from the neck, down the back, and into the seat in one smooth, continuous motion.

The Human Novo XT also features a higher-than-average number of automatic massage programs — 34 to be exact. During these massage programs, the entire range of the L-Track is utilized, and roller massage actions are combined with the chair’s 36 airbags to create highly therapeutic massage actions that treat the whole body.

Other features of the Human Touch Novo XT include a space-saving recline track, foot rollers, and built-in Bluetooth speakers. So while the Human Touch Novo XT doesn’t have the same level of high-tech features, it’s a thoughtfully designed massage chair from a very reputable company and should definitely be considered when shopping for the best massage chair.

By Panasonic: Panasonic EP-MA73

You probably know that unlike other massage chair companies, Panasonic produces a broad range of other consumer electronics including TVs, cameras, home appliances, and more.

But, you might not know that Panasonic massage chairs were the first to receive an endorsement from the American Chiropractic Association for their ability to provide high-quality massage therapy. And among Panasonic’s several high-end massage chairs, the Panasonic EPMA73 is by far the best.

One of the first things you’ll notice about the Panasonic EPMA73 is its unique armrest design. Featuring a “pop-up” design, the chair’s armrests function as regular — i.e., non-massage — armrests when not in use.

When you want to enjoy an arm massage, they pop up and are ready to provide a full coverage air compression massage.

The chair’s armrests are also self-adjusting, moving as the chair reclines so your arms are always in the correct position for arm massage.

Heat Therapy, Panasonic EP-MA73, Massage Features

While the armrest design is convenient, the real action is found beneath the surface of the Panasonic EPMA73 with the chair’s heated 3D roller system. Similar to the Cozzia Qi, the massage rollers of the EPMA73 heat up to simulate the warm touch of a massage therapist’s hands.

Further enhancing the action of the rollers, the chair is equipped with an intuitive microprocessor and intensity sensor that give the rollers a high degree of precision and automatically adjust the intensity of the rollers. Also, the Panasonic EPMA73 is one of the only massage chairs to offer true trapezius massage, in which the rollers extend to massage the tops of the shoulders.

For more information and insight on the features of the Panasonic EPMA73, our full-length review goes into much greater detail.

Highlights of the Panasonic EP MA73

  • 3D dual heated massage roller.
  • Intuitive microprocessor.
  • Intensity sensor.
  • Full body air massage — 33 airbags.
  • Popup self-adjusting arm massagers.
  • Rotatable and retractable leg ottoman.
  • Heat therapy for feet.
  • 7 massage techniques.
  • 6 auto programs.
  • 4 additional stretch programs.
  • Custom massage memory function.

By Inada: Inada Dreamwave

According to Inada, the Dreamwave is the “World’s Best Massage Chair.” And when you look at the advanced technologies that make up this chair, it’s hard to disagree with Inada’s bold proclamation — the Inada Dreamwave really is one of the best massage chairs ever created.

But does that mean that out of all the massage chairs on our list, the Inada Dreamwave is the right chair for you? Maybe, maybe not.

Either way, let’s take a look at the features that have won the Inada Dreamwave such an impressive reputation.

One of the most important distinctions of the Inada Dreamwave is that it’s entirely designed and manufactured in Japan. As we touched when covering the Osaki Japan Premium 4S, Japanese massage chairs are built to much more exacting standards. It typically lasts considerably longer than Chinese-made massage chairs.

Shoulder Massage, Inada Dreamwave, Features

In terms of the massage components, the Inada Dreamwave is one of the most advanced chairs on the market. Using 3D massage rollers that provide an impressive 1,200 square inches of coverage and a special optical point infrared scanning system, the Dreamwave offers some of the most accurate and effective massage therapy of any massage chair. Specifically, the massage rollers of the Dreamwave perform a figure-eight motion that thoroughly massages the muscles and induces total relaxation.

Air massage is also an integral part of the Inada Dreamwave. Using a vast network of “air cells,” trigger point massage is performed, which is particularly beneficial in the chair’s special neck and shoulder massagers.

Wide Seat, Inada Dreamwave: Shoulder Massage, Features

Other features including an infrared heating system help the Inada Dreamwave live up to its illustrious reputation. However, you might be surprised to discover that the Dreamwave lacks features such as foot rollers and Zero Gravity recline that we can find on many of the other massage chairs on our list.

So is the Inada Dreamwave one of the best massage chairs in the world? Absolutely.

But is it the best?

When stacked up against highly impressive chairs such as the Cozzia Qi, Ogawa Smart 3D, and the Luraco i7 iRobotics, it’s clear that the Inada Dreamwave may not be at the top of the massage chair food chain like it once was. Still, if you’re looking for an exceptionally high-quality Japanese massage chair, the Inada Dreamwave is an excellent choice.

Learn more of Inada Dreamwave’s features in our in-depth review here. Furthermore, check out this comparison between Inada Dreamwave vs Infinity Iyashi to know which massage chair would suit you better.

Highlights of the Inada Dreamwave

  • Designed and manufactured in Japan.
  • 3D massage rollers.
  • Optical point sensor system.
  • Special neck and shoulder massage.
  • Full body air massage.
  • Back and seat heat therapy.
  • Rubber node acupressure foot massage.
  • Extendable ottoman.
  • 7 massage techniques.
  • 8 automatic massage programs.

Gone, But Not Forgotten

uKnead Bella

If you’re looking for a high-end massage chair that doesn’t necessarily look like a massage chair, the uKnead Bella is perhaps the most stylish chair on the market. With a sleek, modern design and textured exterior upholstery, the uKnead Bella will look as great in your living room as it will in a more professional office setting.

But it’s not only the uKnead Bella’s looks that landed it a spot on our list of best massage chairs. A 30-inch S-Track offer full back massage with five massage techniques to choose from.

A full body air massage system complete with 46 airbags is utilized alongside the roller system in the chair’s five automatic massage programs. Moreover, extra features such as seat vibration and heating enhance the massage experience.

To help you get completely relaxed, the uKnead Bella features a comprehensive recline system with a special sleep mode that places your body in the perfect position in which to take a nap.

While the uKnead Bella is a full-featured massage chair, it doesn’t have nearly the amount of advanced features as many of the other massage chairs on our list. Instead, the focus of the Bella, and what makes it one of the best massage chairs, is its style.

And to enhance the chair’s style even more and give it that “luxury recliner” look, the Bella features hideaway retractable leg ottoman. So if you want a massage chair but don’t want a less-than-attractive chair messing up your interior design, we highly recommend checking out the uKnead Bella.

Highlights of the Uknead Bella

  • Stylish design.
  • Hideaway retractable footrest.
  • 30-inch S-Track.
  • Shiatsu foot rollers.
  • Full body air massage — 46 airbags.
  • 5 automatic programs.
