Real Relax is known for its high-quality, pocket-friendly massage chairs. The company understands how important it is to relax and unwind after a long day of gaming, working, or working out. True to the company’s name, its products offer real rejuvenating relaxation.
To understand what Real Relax is all about, here is a review of the Real Relax chair.
Features of the Real Relax Shiatsu Massage Chair
The Real Relax Full Body Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair does exactly what its name suggests. It provides revitalizing massage for all parts of the body, from your head to your feet. This massage chair is designed to offer you that deep massage experience that is second to none, making it a must-have.
The chair can recline to any angle of your liking, enabling you to experience the real zero gravity feeling. By combining its built-in rollers and the 35 available airbags, the chair can massage every part of your body to satisfaction. Its extendable leg rests can be easily moved, making the chair suitable for people of all heights. How you feel before and after a session on the Real Relax chair is a testimonial worth experiencing rather than hearing or reading about.
Its backrest has eight different massage points that boost the Zero Gravity capability. The massage points make it possible for your whole back and neck to be massaged simultaneously. Aside from your back and neck, the Real Relax chair also provides 360-degree massage for your shoulders, arms, and legs. There is also hip and foot massage for that complete body massage experience.
There is more; there is an in-built heater that helps improve both your circulation and metabolism. The Real Relax massage chair will not only eliminate all those nasty aches and pains that cause discomfort but also boost your body’s metabolism. The benefits seem too attractive to ignore.
With such amazing features, it might come as a surprise that the Real Relax massage chair is pretty easy to use. Equipped with a control pad that is easy to operate, using the chair is as simple as ABC. The control pad fits comfortably into the pocket in front of the chair, making losing it next to impossible. It also has a clearly lit VFD screen with a wide range of options to choose from for that nice massage experience.
Complication tends to breed frustration, and Real Relax understands that. This is why the Real Relax massage chair makes it easy for you to understand how it works. Simplicity is always key. It won’t take you hours but just a few minutes to be able to decide whether the pre-set massages are better than your very own customized massages. This means that, within a few minutes of getting hold of this massage chair, you will be enjoying everything it has to offer.
The Full Body Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair is, of course, not just a massage chair. This means that you don’t have to pigeonhole it into just one function, that is, for your much-coveted massage sessions. It is also quite comfortable to use as home furniture. Covered in faux leather, the chair is not only comfortable to sit on but is also a great modern addition to your room. Thanks to its two wheels, the chair can be transferred with ease from one area of your house to another. The flexibility and options this chair offers are enough to prove its reliability.
The Real Relax chair is a jewel from the moment you open the packaging. Assembling the chair is quite easy because it comes with a clear instruction manual. With the instruction manual at hand, it will take you at most 30 minutes to have the chair up and running. In case you get stuck, which is unlikely, but just in case you do, there are online videos to help you out.
For further assistance, there is the Real Relax Customer Service Team that is always available to help you. After all, great customer service guarantees a satisfied customer, and since the chair is so popular, a simple Google or YouTube search will provide you with plenty of resource material on how to get the best out of this high-spec chair.

How does the Real Relax Full Body Zero Gravity Massage Chair compare to its competition?
The Real Relax Full Body Zero Gravity Massage Chair, considering its price range, is a force to be reckoned with in the market. Its high-end specs and pocket-friendly price range makes it come second to only its sister model, the Real Relax Recliner-with Armrest System.
The Real Relax Recliner comes with an extra 15 airbags and an extra pinch to your pocket. It is not as affordable as the Real Relax Full Body Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair. On the downside, the massage chair Recliner has only 20 airbags and isn’t suitable for every Tom, Dick, and Harry. Taller people, 6 feet and above, will find it not to their liking.
Beyond the sibling rivalry between the Real Relax Full Body Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair and the Real Relax Recliner, there is also the RELAXONCHAIR MK-II. This chair offers everything Real Relax offers but with more extra features.
These features include speed control, computerized body-scan technology, and the choice of tapping/kneading massage. The RELAXONCHAIR MK-II comes ready to squash its competitors with its exemplary features. However, considering its price range, costing twice as much as the Real Relax, it would be a nice idea to think about it carefully before actually making any purchase.
This Real Relax chair is not only affordable but also offers you the kind of massage experience that your body usually needs after a long tiring day. Plus, it’s not just for massage sessions as it can be a nice complement to your home furniture. Thanks to its wheels, it can be moved from room to room with ease.
While other chairs provide a wider range of massages, their price range is nothing compared to this massage chair. Providing much-needed relaxation at the most affordable price, this chair is a must-have in the house. Built to cater for all, it is a chair for the whole family.
