BestMassage 06C Electric Full Body Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner Review

by Andy Clarks | Last Updated: November 30, 2016

Dealing with sore, aching muscles on a daily basis with no relief can have a major negative impact on how you look and feel. One of the best ways to maintain good physical and mental health after a hard day’s work is through massage. In fact, having a massage on a daily basis is not only perfect for reliving tired aching muscles, stress and anxiety, but it has also been proven to promote a number of lifelong health benefits.

But a daily massage is something most working families can’t afford. The average massage cost ranges from $50 to $100 or more depending on massage type. Shiatsu massage in particular can be more expensive.

But frequent massages can be a necessity, especially for people who suffer from disabilities, past injuries, arthritis or back issues.

Purchasing a massage chair is a great solution and one that can end up saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars a year. But most people hesitate to purchase one simply because of the high price tag. However, if you add up the annual cost of weekly or monthly massages, you’ll find that this chair soon pays for itself.

The Best Massage 06C electric full body massage chair is equipped with a wide range of massage options that allow you to enjoy the benefits of massage right in the comfort of your own home.

Best Massage Chair Assessment

This model features an innovative modern design with more than thirty airbags, a heat intelligent roller system and ultra-long range massage. The chair’s massage heads are designed to target tsubo points or stress relieving points on the neck. The impressive range of the rollers allows the chair to work areas of the tailbone and neck, areas that other chairs fail to focus on. The fatigue relieving massage utilizes twenty airbags, which are located in the lower portion of the chair and are designed to massage the feet, thighs and legs. This helps to promote better circulation to the lower extremities. Users can customize the massage by changing the intensity level from weak to strong.

This fully automatic massage chair is equipped with a reclining backrest and foot ottoman. Massage options can work the entire body including the buttocks, thighs, back, calves, arms, neck and tailbone.

A kneading massage helps to reduce pain associated with muscle tightness and strain and is strong enough to work out stubborn knots. The shiatsu massage is pretty impressive and utilizes power
rollers to reduce fatigue, relax the muscles and rejuvenate both the body and mind.

This model comes with four preset auto programs allowing the user to choose between refresh, extend, and relax or recovery massage, with just a press of a button.

The four unique massage functions offer a human-like touch that includes percussion, compression, kneading and a chop action. When combined with the four preset programs and the adjustable massage intensity, the user can enjoy a highly customized massage experience that’s based on their needs.

This chair is also equipped with a built-in heat function which can be applied to the feet or lower back area. Heat therapy is said to have a number of benefits when it comes to releasing stubborn knots, reducing inflammation and relieving pain.

Currently, this model is available in three colors including burgundy, brown or black.

The manufacturer offers a one year limited warranty on all parts.

06C Electric Massage Chair Pros and Cons

Pros: The chair features a soft faux leather cover, and an attractive wood trim with a high-gloss finish on the armrests. Minimal assembly is required, which is a huge bonus for most people. Assembly involves attaching the armrests and hooking up the air hose. The wide variety of customization and massage options make this the perfect chair for the whole family. The heating function and neck massage option were big selling points for this model. The thirty airbags found throughout the chair gives the user many options in terms of massage style. Overall, the chair itself feels pretty sturdy and comfortable and is able to handle a user weight up to 250 pounds.

Cons: One of the biggest downsides to purchasing this model is the warranty. While many manufacturers offer an extensive warranty on their massage chairs, this model only comes with a one year warranty. This is a big problem and one that can end up costing you a ton of cash in the long run, should your chair have any issues after twelve months of use. One consumer complained that their chair ceased to work a couple of months after their warranty expired. The consumer contacted the manufacturer regarding a replacement part for the chair but they failed to receive one. Eventually, the manufacturer responded and requested that the consumer ship back the chair at their own expense. Unfortunately, another consumer who purchased the chair stated that the control display component on the chair failed to work just one year after use. While the chair is described as soft and comfortable, it tends to feel somewhat stiff if you’re sitting in it to simply relax and the massage feature is not on.  Another issue involves the chair’s ability to accommodate taller users. If you’re shorter than 5’4 or taller than six feet. Shorter users may not enjoy the full benefits of the stretching mode unless the chair is fully reclined.

Conclusion and Rating

Consumers who purchased Best Massage 06C Electric Full Body Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner gave it a rating of three out of five stars. While the fact that this chair offered a number of massage possibilities and is equipped with a number of airbags that work to provide a quality massage, the chair is clearly not dependable after one year of use. Given the fact that the manufacturer offers only a one year warranty seems to indicate that they’re aware of the chair’s flaws. If you’re looking for a chair that can last, consumers recommend checking out the Ideal Massage Recliner which is offered at a comparable price.
