Buying guide: Chair massage pad 

Have you ever feel pain, sore or just uncomfortable sitting in your car on your way home after an exhausting day of work? Now imagine you are sitting on a massage pad, completely different right? With today technology, you can enjoy all the massage treatments on your chairs. From the simple but relaxing vibrating massage to rolling and kneading massage. And even the Shiatsu massage technique can be performed by your chair massager pad. All your pain and tiredness will disappear leaving just relax feelings. And the best part is that these pads are portable, you can bring them to your office and put on your working chair. You can even use them on the couch. What more can convenient can it get?


Apart from that, many people may not know how to choose a chair massage pad. In this post, I’m going to share some of my knowledge about choosing a massage pad. The first thing to keep in mind is that massage pads were made to do what massage chair can do without spending too much money (e.g. the full body massage function). A good massage chair pad should have all the important functions from the massage chair. It must be able to make you feel relaxing, ease and soothe back pain, and reduce fatigue.

The good thing when you choose a massage pad is that it is much more portable than the normal massage chair pads and they are much cheaper too. They are easy to use and if you can find a good massage pad, you can have a great time using it. The only downside to this is that you can’t have a full body massage on it. Your body weight is a major factor when you buy a massage pad. If you are too heavy, you should consider buying a massage chair for the best experience.

Here are some of the most trusted brand that you can find your massage pad:

  • HoMedics has been the leader in the chair massage pad market. Their quality has been proven for many years. And they always keep on improving their products.
  • Brookstore is a leading brand when it comes to Shiatsu massage pad with heat feature.
  • Gideon is famous with their 10 points vibrating pads that focus deep on your back muscle and tissues. Their products vary with so many different choices.

And here are factors that you should consider when buying a massage pad:

The first factor is your budget. The $50 and lower price range usually offer vibration massage pads only. The more function it has doesn’t mean that it is better. Don’t believe too much on the advertisements. If you want a Shiatsu or kneading massage pad, you must pay at least $100 or more. You get what you pay for, right?

Your height can sometimes be a problem. If you are too short or too tall, the pad will not fit your back and the massage experience won’t be as good as it can be. And like I said, your weight can also be a problem. Too much weight can damage the pad’s structure and function. Choose massage pad with a solid build to avoid that.

And consider the product’s massage area too. It would be pointless to buy a massage pad if it can’t reach the vital area. The massage pad should cover you lower back, back, shoulder, and neck. It should be able to get the kinks and knots out with ease and comfort.

Check the return policy, especially when you buying online. You won’t be able to say what will happen. What if you don’t like it, you will be stuck with it and waste your money.

Some people may feel pain and sore after some first uses. Don’t worry, this is a common effect. Just like you get muscle pain after the first time when to the gym. The pain will go away after a few times. If it doesn’t, contact the producer to get support.

And remember too much massage or too intense massage could hurt your back. Too much of a good thing is not always good.
