Not all massages are created equal -- or used for the same reasons. So when you pick up the remote for the Cozzia 16018 automated massage chair you'll find three buttons for three different types of massages, depending on what you've been doing and why you're leaning back in the massage chair in the first place. The Relax button gives you a gentle massage for those moments when you don't want a massage therapist treating your body like a piece of beef that needs to be tenderized. The Therapy button makes things rougher, for those times when your muscles are aching because you've just worked out -- or hauled boxes around a warehouse. The Air button is for those occasions when you've been sitting down so long at a computer that your buttocks start to complain about abusive treatment. It turns on the airbags and squeezes your midsection to get the blood circulating.
Of course, you might not want any of those specialized massage routines and would rather customize your own. The remote on the Cozzia lets you choose between kneading, tapping, Swedish, dual-action and rolling massages, and setting the intensity of those massages to one of three different levels. So if you don't feel up to orchestrating your own massage like a bandleader, you can let the Cozzia choose the routines for you, or if you want more control, you can select the workout your body is crying out for.
There's not a lot of difference between the Cozzia 16018 and the Cozzia 16028, except that the latter costs a little less and the former has a spiffy, moveable arm for holding your remote. Otherwise they do pretty much the same things, so you might want to look at both chairs before you make a decision as to which you want to buy. And if you don't want to buy either but would prefer something more expensive, with even more options, there are a lot of chairs you can look at. You could try the uKnead Lavita, which costs about twice what this chair does. Or you could at least take a glimpse at the starry heights of the Inada Dreamwave, which costs almost an order of magnitude more than this chair.
Extremely comfortable! For this price I would highly recommend this chair.
Very therapeutic chair. Unbelievable!
Such a great product to have in your homes!
I have health issues with my back and that is why I bought this massage chair to help my back pain. Instead of helping my back, it made my back more painful.
This chair is nothing short of great, I am very happy with it and use it on a daily basis, be aware this is a zero gravity chair and to use it as such you need.
Very satisfied with this product and is worth every penny spent on it.
This is a decent entry level chair. Easy to setup and to move from room to room. With the low price and free 5 year warranty this is a good value.
