There are dozen of massage techniques to choose from with a wide range of customization options.
In Malaysia, there are quite several well-known massage chair brands, along with some value-for-money alternatives. We have tried many of them and also done hours of research to shortlist which are the best for the price. Here are the best massage chairs you can buy in Malaysia today!
The first thing that stands about the OGAWA iCuddle Massage Chair is its design. At first look, it just looks like a stylish and modern swivel chair. It is unlike other massage chairs which have a bulky design. Instead, the OGAWA iCuddle is sleek and compact which makes it easy to fit in any room or space.
The massage functions are outstanding. As you sit on the chair, it almost feels like you’re being massaged by real human hands. The rollers can knead, thump and press out any knots from your back and body to give you the ultimate relaxation. The chair is also ergonomically designed with an L-shaped track which follows the curvature of our back and spine. As such, even just sitting on the chair feels exceptionally comfortable.
For an OGAWA massage chair, the iCuddle is surprisingly affordable as well. It costs much less than their our other massage chairs which makes it an excellent value-for-money buy!
Want a massage chair but don’t want to pay thousands for one? Here’s a secret hack to get a massage chair experience at a fraction of the price – the OGAWA XE Duo Portable Massage Cushion! It can convert almost any chair or sofa you have into a massage chair. That means you can use it for your sofa in your living room or even your office chair in your study room.
This portable massage cushion comes with the ability to perform a full-back shiatsu massage. There are a total of 8 kneading balls which will reach every muscle group in your back. You also have the option of turning on the heat if you need some relief for aches and pains. The massage zone also reaches to your lower back and waist.
When we last check, this portable OGAWA massage cushion was under RM400. That is so much cheaper than a full-sized massage chair which easily costs RM2000 and more. This is our top recommendation for a close-enough alternative to a massage chair.
What if you add massage functions to a rocking chair? That totally sounds like the best combination you could get. Now, that is a reality with the OGAWA iSwing Ultimate Rocking Massage Chair. It will wash away the stresses of the day and get you fully relaxed for the best sleep you have ever had.
