The Cozzia 16018 Shiatsu Massage Chair isn't quite as rock bottom in price as the Human Touch iJoy Active 2.0, but it's still inexpensive enough to qualify as a massage chair bargain. It features a standard range of massage techniques -- Swedish, shiatsu, kneading, tapping and rolling -- and has an S-shaped back to keep you comfy while you stretch out in it. It has a total of 22 airbags for your back, rear end, abs, feet and neck, and will warm up your lumbar to loosen your muscles for the vibrations in the seat. (The heat should feel especially good on a cold winter day, but that's not what it's there for.) You can customize the speed of the rollers and set your massage time in 15-minute increments, so you won't get so carried away that you forget to make dinner.
The remote is colorful, with an LED screen, so you won't confuse it with the remote for the Roku. With one touch the chair will lean back into zero-gravity position, where the stress on your spine goes away and you float leisurely like an astronaut on vacation from a long stint on the International Space Station. The remote comes programmed with several massage routines, but you can put it in manual mode to activate some of your favorite body-nudging functions. The width of the massage area can be adjusted according to your own width and there's a picture of your body on the LCD screen that hopefully won't show you how much width you have, which would be a real turn-off when all you want to do is relax and be rubbed.
As massage chairs go, the Cozzia 16018 won't win any awards for innovative features, but it has the basics and a price that probably gets even better if you find one used. For other massage chairs within the same price range, give or take several hundred dollars, look at the Real Relax Favor-01 or the Titan TI-7800. Or just splurge on a Titan TP- Pro Alpine.
The chair is awesome. We use it daily. We have recommended it to many of our friends and family.
I have an arthritis condition and lower back problems. After purchasing this chair I have more energy during the day and sleep better. I use it before work and after work.
I tried this chair I was impressed with the strength of the massage on the back and feet. I also like the Zero Gravity recline it's very relaxing. Overall I'm really happy!
A good combination of Shiatsu and Swedish massage. A nice value with the free 5 year extended warranty!
I have more energy at work and sleep better. All the years with aches and going to chiropractor and doctor I just wish I would have bought this years ago.
