A high quality massage chair may not be as expensive as you thinkWhether you’re on the hunt for a replacement massage chair, looking to buy your first massage chair or have never even considered a massage chair before, you might be surprised to find that they’re not as expensive as you think and offer more than just relaxation. Your reasons for considering a massage chair may be for pure relaxation, improved health, pain relief, stress relief or a particular health concern. As you may have researched, massage and massage chairs can help with all of the above. In fact, some are calling for massage to be regarded as medicine, not just pampering. According to a recent government report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 1 in 5 Australians now live with chronic pain and for those aged over 65, this rises to 1 in 3. Studies have shown that massage can relieve these pain symptoms. So, regular massage has been proven to be a valuable treatment for your health and general wellbeing. That’s wonderful, but how much is it going to cost? Let’s work it out. In Australia, the average cost of a 1 hour session with a massage therapist is $60-$120 per hour. Based on the lower end of the scale, a weekly or fortnightly massage is approximately $60. This doesn’t include your travel time, travel costs and any parking fees, not to mention the inconvenience of having to leave your home. When you consider an inTouch massage chair, you can own your own chair from only $23.49 a week. Even the Smart Glide, which has the most advanced technology in Australia, can be yours from just $39.41 a week. Considering that you can use your inTouch massage chair as often as you want to and your whole family can enjoy it, it’s really much more affordable than a massage therapist.
