Many of you have visited Brookstone and perhaps tried one of the massage chairs. One of the brands that they feature is Osim. They are a large distribution company located in Singapore. They are known for branding chairs manufactured by others under their name. One of the chairs that they sell to Brookstone is iSymphonic massage chair which will be reviewed in the following paragraphs.
The world of massage chairs can sometimes be confusing with a number of different brands and manufacturers. Though some are not actually a manufacturer but are a distributor. They use a third-party to make their chairs and then they market and brand them.
This recliner is equipped with infrared sensors. The sensors are used to measure the dimensions of your body to provide a custom massage. The massage rollers will adjust themselves based on the readings of your body.
also a synchronized function. This enables you to listen to your favorite music while the chair is synchronized to the tempo of the music.
An exciting feature in this recliner is its synchronized music therapy system. The synchronized music is based on your preferences. Select the type of music that you want and push the synchronize button. The chair will then start the massage movements based on the tempo of the music playing.
Automatic massage programs are preset programs in the recliner. There are a total of five automatic healthcare programs in the Osim iSymphonic recliner. These programs are set for 15 minutes.
In addition to automatic massage programs, there are also manual massage techniques. This enables you to select a technique and let it work over a specific area. This is great for targeted relief.
It is always nice to have a powered recline. Just choose the feature on the easy-to-use remote and you are powered backwards. Find the angle that is comfortable for you and then stop.
A great way to massage your lower body is with the compression massage system. An air pump directs pressurized air into airbags. The airbags squeeze the larger muscles of the body providing relief.
I am a big fan of music therapy. Music helps you to relax. It is a good way to distract your mind from its troubles. Most massage therapist use soft rhythmic music to provide for their treatments. This massaging chair comes with a good music therapy.
This massage recliner is a decent one for the price. I don’t think I would take this one over some of its rivals. I find some great technology being put out by Panasonic, Sanyo and Omega. The difference between these companies is the full therapeutic treatment that you receive in one of their recliners.
My back and shoulders get very stiff which requires deeper tissue massage. I like a good strong massage chair which will penetrate through the muscle tissue. I did not get the same penetration with the Osim iSymphonic massage chair. It seemed a little weak and superficial for my taste.
The features I like on this massage chair are the music and the synchronization function. I thought the back of massage was weak and superficial. I do not think that this massage chair would be good for my long-term needs. I prefer a massage which is stronger on the back as that is where most of my tension resides. Those are my opinions about my testing of the Osim iSymphonic massage chair.
