Massage Chair

Went to Brookstone and tried one of those massage chairs. They are much improved from earlier days but not cheap $3,300 and $4,300 for the latest models. Felt devine and actually got me thinking about getting one. Has anyone in ER land (or is this automatically not LBYM?) have one? What did it cost? Any problems? How intensive is it used or did the wonder pass quickly?

I got DW a Homedics Shiatsu Massage cushion (at her request). At a tiny fraction of the cost you might want to try one of these things first. I don't really like it but DW does.

I almost bought one many years ago, but before I did anything was offered a short stint in the UK...

I did research and found there were better options than the ones in the mall... similar price, but better chair...

+1. I don't know the brand or model, but I tried a few back cushion styles at different pharmacies, and was very impressed for around $100. They've made some improvements as well.

Bought one a few years back. Used it for 6 months and then gave it away.
For me the novelty just wore off.
