Financial Benefits of Massage Chairs
Even though a massage chair is a significant investment, it can help you save money in the long term.
Owning a massage chair for a period of several years is less expensive than a standing appointment with a masseuse. A typical full-body massage session in the U.S. can range from $50 to over $150, depending on the specific treatments used (hot stone, deep tissue, etc.) — and the more frequent the appointments, the faster those expenses will pile up! Fortunately, financing is available for Dr.Care massage chairs, and the longevity they guarantee will save you money over time. (10 year warranty!)
Owning a massage chair can save you time, which is almost as valuable as money. The cost of a massage appointment alone can be long and tedious, plus time to get yourself there; you’d better hope you don’t find a masseuse you like only to have them move farther away! Visiting your massage chair costs as much time as it takes to reach the room it’s in.
