1. Osaki Maestro Massage Chair

osaki maestro score rating Score: 10.0
Osaki OS-Pro Maestro 4D L-Track Massage Chair with Foot Roller, Zero Gravity, Space Saving DesignThis is the hottest chair this season and for great reasons. It’s the newest and most advanced massage chair on the market. It offers great benefits including 4D massage, L Track, heated rollers, zero gravity, space saving, body scan, and more.

  • 4D means that the rollers go up and down, side to side, they will push out or can be retracted in so that you can adjust the intensity level from very gentle to very intense. 4D also means that the speed of the rollers will adjust to pay more attention to your muscles that are the most tense.
  • L Track means that the rollers that go up and down your back will continue down past your lower back to massage your gluts as well.
  • Heated rollers means that the back rollers themselves can be activated with heat if you like, which is similar to getting a hot stone, which is a wonderful experience if you’ve never tried that.
  • Zero gravity will recline you back and elevate your knees above the level of your heart to improve your circulation and to alleviate all the pressure on your knees and back from standing or sitting all day.
  • Body scan means the chair will accurately measure the dimensions of your body to provide a precise massage that’s customized for you particular body size.

The Maestro also includes a secondary remote panel, which is very convenient and allows you a shortcut to some of the most frequently used features. So in short, the Osaki Maestro is a combination of the best features and benefits on the market right now from a very reputable manufacturer in Osaki. And the most important part is that the quality of the massage movements is excellent.

So for those reasons the Osaki Maestro gets our top pick. In our opinion, there is no better massage chair available right now. And our customers agree since it’s been one of the most popular sellers and with no returns to date.

2. Infinity Presidential Massage Chair

Infinity Presidential 3D L-Track Massage Chair with Shiatsu, Space Saving, Spinal CorrectionThis is one of our most popular and most well-rated chairs as well. Because it is one of the newer models from one of the best electric massager manufacturers it delivers an excellent overall massage value.

First off, the basics – it is a 3D L-Track massage chair with a lot of other premium benefits as well including heated rollers, triple foot rollers, twelve massage programs. But what makes it really stand out are some additional extras. For example, the L-track is a hinged L-track, which means that the stretch massage also known as spinal correction has a wider range of stretch movement compared to traditional L-track chairs in which the track is a fixed shape.

It’s a very long L-track at 49 inches long to provide a full range of massage movement for your gluts muscles. It allows you seven levels of heat intensity. So that you can find the right temperature setting for you regardless of whether it is winter or summer. And in addition to heat therapy for your lower back and for your feet, it also provides rollers that are heated themselves, which is an uncommon and premium benefit. The triple foot rollers provide excellent reflexology massage.

Infinity is one of the most highly reputable manufacturers and they are well-known for providing premium massage chairs and backing it up with excellent service. The infinity Presidential massage chair also provides additional perks including space saving, which means you can keep the chair just a few inches away from your wall as well as the music sync feature, which will synchronize the massage movements to the tempo of your favorite music plus allowing you the option to control the chair using an iPhone or Android app as well as the built-in remote control.

So overall, the Infinity Presidential gets one of our highest recommendations and customer satisfaction with this model.

3. Luraco iRobotics 7 Massage Chair

osaki maestro score ratingScore: 9.4
medical massahe chairLuraco i7 iRobotics 3D Medical Massage Chair with Zero GravityThe Luraco i7 has been one of the most beloved chairs and for great reasons. As you probably already know, it is one of the only chairs designed, engineered, and assembled right here in the USA. It is the only chair certified by both the FDA and by UL as a “medical massage chair”, which is a strong testament to its quality. So why do customers love it? Because everything it does and even the components used are very high quality.

  • It is one of the only chairs in the market to use genuine natural leather on all of the touchpoint – that is the part of the chair that will actually be in contact with your body during a massage.
  • It offers a very precise body scan and 3D massage, which allows you to adjust the intensity level of each major body parts separately. So for example, you can have the foot massage high if you prefer while the back massage intensity is low, for example.
  • There is a very super easy to use touch screen remote that is designed to look very similar to an iPhone or an Android smart phone.
  • The i7 delivers one of the best stretch massage modes ever made on a massage chair. It also is one of the few chairs that allows you to save your user settings. This is a very convenient feature. When you first start the chair, it will precisely measure the dimensions of your body and then you can see if your user settings as well, and then you can save your body scan settings as user 1, for example so the next time you sit in the chair, you can bypass the body scan by simply choosing user 1, the chair will immediately go into your favorite massage program that is customized already for your measurements. This is very popular in households with more than one user because you can save up to five user settings on the chair.

The Luraco i7 also includes one of the best warranties in the market, which is the 5-year parts and 3-year in home labor warranties. One of the only drawbacks we can think of is that the chair does not offer L-track to massage your gluts but that is by design so that the chair can offer you a better stretch massage. In general, L-track chairs do not allow a very wide range of movement for the stretch massage due to the fist shape of the L-track.

For a limited time, we are also including the FREE White Glove service, also known as indoor setup and assembly service (normally a $395 value). Because of the high quality components as well as premium overall massage experience of this Made in USA massage chair, it earns one of our highest scores at 9.4.

4. Inada Dreamwave Massage Chair

osaki maestro score ratingScore: 9.0
 Inada DreamWave Massage ChairYou’ve probably already heard of the Inada Dreamwave because it has widely been regarded the number 1 massage chair on the market for years. It’s one of the few chairs made in Japan so it’s known for very high quality components and workmanship. Inada has long been established as one of the best brands on the market.

Although the Dreamwave has been on the market for a few years already, it still compares very well to most of the chairs on the market today and that’s because of the smoothness and quality of movements. The timing and the choreography of each massage program is highly refined and is designed to emulate a massage from an excellent masseuse. You can pack a massage chair with a ton of features but if the smoothness and quality of the most basic massage movements is outstanding often the other features are not really necessary.

This chair is particularly great for users who prefer a gentle, soothing, relaxing massage experience. It is also renowned for shoulder, massage, upper neck, and trapezius area. It is unique in that the headrest has a special component that pushes down to massage your trapezius muscle from the top down. The only drawback to this chair is that it has been on the market for a few years so it lacks some more up to date features such as L-track massage for your glutes, in case that’s important to you.

Customer satisfaction on the Inada Dreamwave is extremely high and that is because it provides a buttery smooth, premium quality massage experience and that is something that our customers never grow tired of. The Inada Dreamwave is also backed by a full 3-year parts and 3 years in-home labor warranty.

5. Osaki OS-4000T Massage Chair

osaki maestro score ratingScore: 8.5
Osaki OS-4000T Executive Massage Chair with Zero Gravity, Foot RollersFor our customers who are on more of a budget, the Osaki 4000T is easily the most popular selling massage chair. We consider it the best value under $3,000 and the high customer satisfaction ratings speak for themselves. This is clearly a great value for your money.

It provides a whole host of full body massage benefits including zero gravity, lower back heat therapy, foot rollers massage, a massage from your neck to down your entire back to your lower back, your shoulders, your arms, hand and foot massage, as well as your calves.

While the overall massage experience will not be quite as premium, understandably, as some of the other chairs on this list, if you’re on a budget the Osaki 4000T will give you a great value for the money.

6. Panasonic MA73 Massage Chair

osaki maestro score ratingScore: 8.4
Panasonic EP-MA73 Real Pro ULTRA™ Massage Chair with Body Scan TechnologyThis is the bestselling from perhaps the best known brand name in the industry, which is Panasonic, a household name that is well known for quality. Panasonic massage chairs are approved by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), which is a testament to numerous natural health and wellness benefits of regular massage . The ACA certifies that Panasonic provides outstanding and one of the best deep tissue massagers for tensed muscles relief and relaxation.

The MA73 offers 3D massage so if you are someone who like an intense, deep-tissue massage, you should definitely consider the MA73. It’s really great for you if you’re looking for an excellent massage of your neck upper shoulders and trapezius muscles. It is one of, if not, the most ideal massage chair for that area.

It also offers some premium massage features that are not found in many other chairs. For instance, it offers you heat therapy for your feet and the arm airbags as well as heated rollers. It also doubles as a lounge chair because it allows you to flip the ottoman over into a regular foot rest and the arm massage can be closed and put away so that the chair provides standard arm rests. This means that the MA73 can easily be converted from a comfortable lounge chair to a premium massage experience.

Panasonic backs this chair with a full 3-year parts and an 3-year in-home service warranty. It is an excellent massage chair with a strong history of outstanding customer reviews. Because it has been on the market for a few years, it lacks some of the new features. For example, L-track massage for your glutes. The price is a little bit high but you are getting a premium experience so overall, we feel this chair deserves a great rating and a high score of 8.4.
