Real Relax has been making high-quality massage chairs since 2015. Consistently highly rated, the company produce high-end but affordable massage chairs that are perfect for those who have spent the day working, exercising and gaming hard, and here's one Real Relax Chair review.
FEATURES of the Real Relax Shiatsu Massage Chair
The beautifully designed Real Relax Full Body Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair is a must-have for those who want are looking for a deep massage experience. This chair provides a head to toe massage that can be reclined to any angle of your choosing - giving you a real “zero gravity” feeling and reducing pressure from the spine. It uses a combination of built-in rollers and 35 airbags to massage every part of your body. The extendable leg rests are easily moved meaning that the chair can be used by people of all heights.
The Zero Gravity benefits from 8 different massage points in its’ back rest. This allows all the different areas of your back and neck to be massaged at the same time. The Real Relax Chair also provides 360 degree massage for your shoulders, arms and legs meaning aches and pains will be gently soothed away. This in addition to neck, hip and foot massage means that you really will be relaxing from head to toe. The chair even has a built-in heater which helps to increase circulation and improves metabolism.
One of the best points (other than the highly relaxing massage it gives) is Real Relax’s ease of use. You are provided with a control pad (that fits neatly into a pocket at the front - so no danger of losing it). The control pad has a clearly lit VFD screen that allows you to choose from a wide range of options. Thankfully, this isn’t one of those massage chairs that will take you several weeks to work out how to use it. After just a few minutes you will be able to choose from the pre-set massages or put together your own with just a few presses on the pad.
As well as giving you an all-over massage the Full Body Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair is also comfortable enough for you to use as an everyday easy chair. Covered in faux leather, the Chair is both comfortable to sit on and is a modern addition to any room. It also comes with two wheels which means it can easily be tilted and rolled if you need to move its’ position at any time.
From the moment you open the packaging, this massage chair is a winner. The detailed instruction manual shows you how to put the chair together. This only takes about 30 minutes and if you get stuck there are online videos. Real Relax’s Customer Service Team are known for going the extra mile and are also able to help if you need it. As the chair is so popular chair, YouTube also has plenty of videos on how to get the best out of this high-spec chair.

HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO ITS COMPETITION?
The Real Relax Full Body Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair is probably the best for its’ price and is only topped by its sister model the Real Relax Massage Chair Recliner - with Armrest linkage system. The latter contains an extra 15 airbags but will add another $XX to the price tag, but has only 20 airbags and isn’t suitable for those 6 feet or taller.
If you want a chair with more Shiatsu massage features, the RELAXONCHAIR MK-II offers everything the Real Relax does but with extra features such as computerised body-scan technology, the choice of tapping/kneading massage and speed control. It’s hard to criticise the RELAXONCHAIR MK-II but costing more twice as much as the Real Relax, it’s important to decide whether you need all those tempting features.
This Real Relax Chair is great value for money and will provide you with an highly relaxing all-over massage. There are other chairs that provide a wider range of massages (more prodding, shiatsu etc) but these come with a much heftier price tag.
