It’s a fact, massage chairs are one of the most expensive health care products you can buy for your family. And chairs like Inada Sogno Dreamwave are not in reach of everyone.
But the question is: do cheap massage chairs work? And are they really worth the investment?
To be honest, I don’t think investing in a $5000+ today is a good decision, because there are so many brands nowadays that are offering massage chairs at affordable prices with almost the same features.
But just because the market is too much crowded with new products. I’m writing this guide to share this amazing collection of cheap massage chairs that have the best high-end features and durability.
Now while writing this guide, I was confused what to consider as cheap. Since many people would consider $1500 as cheap, while others might be looking for something below $500. So I wrote this guide in the following format:
1 ) Best Massage Chair Under $2000: Kahuna Lm600
2) Best Massage Chair Under $1500: Ideal massage chair
4) Best Massage Chair Under $500: iJoy Active 2.0 Massage Chair

BestMassage Ec-06c Massage Chair
The Bm ec-06c is the best selling massage chair on Amazon. There are only a few full body massage chairs available at this price. And out of those, this one stands out. The bm ec-06c is one of the few chairs that specifically target tsubo points around the neck area to provide instant relaxation. These massage rollers cannot only target the neck, but their reach extends to the tailbone.

React Shiatsu Massage Chair
ReAct shiatsu massage chair is another chair that grabs attention. The most exlusive thing you get with this chair is obviously the looks. It’s a gorgeous looking massage chair. You can’t even tell if it’s not a normal chair. The best thing I love about this chair is that it supports L-track massage rollers. Which literally no chair in this price is currently offering. You also get the lumbar heating modules.
Though, one thing that is not so good about the chair is that it’s not a full body massage chair. Yup, there is a price that you have to pay for the looks. With this massage chair, you won’t get the foot, arm and shoulder massager. So if you’re someone who is more into aesthetics, and is ready to compromise on the foot and arm massager for a cheap price. Then this is the chair to get.
1 ) Amazing Aesthetics
2 ) Cheapest chair supporting l-track
3) 2 Automatic massage programs
4) heat therapy for back pain
5) Spot massage targets specific body parts
6) Removable neck cushion
7) Roller casters
