Right… Not many!
It’s always wise to choose a reputable brand, but even the massage chairs from a TOP manufacturer/company may vary in quality.
Infinity brands are shown to be one of the most reputable brands in the last 5 years with one of the best customer support in the industry. Few other brands have this level of support and I talked about a few brands before. For example – Human Touch Brand.

We’ll focus on chair comparison, but know that most of these products below have good customer testimonials and comprehensive video assembly tutorials.

Premium Class Models from Infinity
A massage chair glossary needs its premium models, right? So read along.
Albeit more expensive, the Infinity Overture has it all: easy control with voice recognition, smartphone app, and wireless remote, calf rollers and oscillation, heated foot units, 3D technology, and lumbar heat.
The real extras are the J-track, reflexology, air ionizer, and full-body airbag massage. However, it only comes in two colors: black and chocolate brown.
The Infinity Evolution is another high-end massage chair that features calf rollers and oscillation, an air ionizer, and 2 memory functions.
We love the long 49” L-track, the voice control, and USB charging station because they show real user-friendliness.
The 3D massage technology, zero gravity, and 3 rollers per sole allow for a comprehensive, deep massage.
The shoulder airbags are adjustable, plus the rocking technology provides effective pain relief.

On the other hand, it’s a pretty small chair, and it could use an extendable footrest or airbags.
But what’s an excellent alternative to these premium Infinity extensive models?
Again, we have to go with the Luraco iRobotics 7 Plus because of its extensive array of massage techniques and options.
Budget-Friendly Electric Massage Chair Models
What would a buying guide be without the budget model? Here’s the one we love from Infinity:
The T-Evoke-CB from Infinity offers a full-body compression therapy thanks to its 38 airbags and has an S-track design that follows the natural spine curvature.
Using it feels like visiting the massage therapist, especially thanks to the heating function modules.
This is a wear-resistant, low-maintenance product that’s great for basic use.
On the other hand, this model lacks certain extras that would make for a more luxurious massage experience, like the 3D massage rollers, built-in speakers, rocking technology, and smartphone app.
However, these don’t affect its basic functionality.
Alternative: Kahuna LM6800
An alternative in the same price range, the Kahuna LM6800 offers a few advantages, like the 3D body scanning and hybrid L/S design track.
Other than that, the Kahuna 6800 is great thanks to its zero-gravity seating, zone massage option, plus back and calf heat.
It’s also a space-saving massage chair, with an extendable ottoman and an easy-to-use remote.
There are two major disadvantages, though: the impossibility to adjust the massage timer and the lack of an integrated music system.
Are Infinity Massage Chairs Good?
Infinity Massage Chairs are developed by a company called Intra Muscular Pathology (IMP), a company based out of South Africa. They are considered “therapeutic massages,” and they themselves come in three different models. One of these models, the Infinity MD, is used to enhance anti-aging massages by 50 percent, while another, the MD Elite is good for work, is optimized for faster movements with an extra cup holder. Infinity MD is perfect for extended sessions, while the MD Elite will increase the length to 45 minutes.
Although the massaging chairs and their chairs are made of plastic, the chairs themselves are designed to be sturdy and comfortable. The chairs contain synthetic fibers to cushion the user’s legs and keep the spine straight and in place. The chairs themselves do not seem to be heated, and the tables are basic and not completely enclosed. The most unique feature, however, is the wheels, which help to make the chairs easy to move around your house. Several companies use these chairs in their offices for speedy massage-on-the-go, or for long-term and continuous massages.
Do Massage Chairs Have Fuses?
Yes, if the seats are equipped with cords for electric sockets and if they are not encased in foam. Sometimes, they may use a circuit board to set their current and voltage. Do not plug the cord into the electric sockets on the side of the chair, as this could damage the cord or even the electrical sockets. Most chairs have sockets for electric outlets in the back and base, if they are upright and not reclining. They may be on a switch or lever, and may even have a number of buttons to control the chair. Many are computer-controlled or have a remote control. An electric outlet is a single wire, not two wires. All chairs have an information center or base-mounted hole that a cord or plug goes into.
Is a Massage Chair Worth It?
To determine whether a massage chair is right for you, you’ll need to think about what type of chair you’re looking for and your budget. Any Massage Chair Will Do: Using an old-fashioned chair with arms can be very uncomfortable and difficult, especially for beginners. If you’re looking to try a different type of chair, you’ll want to try them first on an old, hard, or sloped surface like the carpet, kitchen counter, or office floor. Many new models like Infinity Aura these days come with a memory foam pad, which makes them more comfortable than their “traditional” counterparts.
Squeeze and Pull: There are two main types of massage chairs. The first is one where you adjust the legs and back of the chair. Then you can manipulate a massage head. The second is a motorized model, which uses a range of different pressure, speed, and modes to give you a professional massage. Some models also come with heaters, handheld massager tools, and other amenities, like wine racks and even Wi-Fi connectivity. You’ll also need to ask yourself if you’re interested in a reclining chair or one that is fully upright.
Is Ogawa Massage Chair Good?
There are some massage chairs available that are so powerful that they can leave you drenched in sweat. The problem is that many of these can be overpriced and some manufacturers do not disclose the exact amount of massage per minute of use. They only include the average amount of minutes of usage to reach that much of a cost. As a result, it can be hard to find the best product if you are in the market for a massage chair. The best way to ensure you get a great product is to shop around. That way, you will be able to get a better deal than you would have gotten just by looking at the average selling price of a product.
One thing to look for is to make sure you buy an energy-efficient massage chair. If the company wants you to pay for their high level of comfort, then it is important that their chairs can be used for at least 2 hours before they start to break down. Another thing to look for is to make sure that the table isn’t completely.
Is Sitting in a Massage Chair Good for You?
I’ve sat in several massage chairs, and I wasn’t going to write about them. It seemed like kind of a trivial topic. But then, over the weekend, I was scrolling through a friend’s Instagram feed and saw a picture of herself sitting in one. She’s not someone I would ordinarily see lying in a chair, since she’s a swimmer, but it was the night of a big race, and she was leaving it in a serious mood. I didn’t see a caption, but I think she was just having a good, honest, post-race cry.
Her friend was nearby, rubbing lotion into her legs and feet, smiling at her. The chair behind them, you could see, had been reclined. That friend probably also thought it was a silly post, and probably enjoyed feeling her friend’s arms around her. But I don’t know. There’s something relaxing about sitting in one of those chairs that seemed—to me—to cut through the post-race depression.
Final Thoughts on Infinity Brand and Chairs
These massage chairs from Infinity are all top-quality, offering personalized massages and bringing you a lot of health benefits.
On the other hand, not all are space-saving or with a lot of massage programs, though they all help achieve inner balance and wellness.
The body massage they offer can improve your posture and feel like personal massagers, with real human touch.
However, the options are the Infinity IT-8500 and Infinity IT-8500X3, especially in the under $5500 – $6000 category, with fewer disadvantages. Customer support is one of the best in the industry. As compared to a Brookstone company support is harder to deal with.
We feel like the top alternative, especially for therapeutic purposes, is Luraco i7 Plus but this is quite expensive.
A cheaper alternative is the Kahuna 6800, which is highly functional, although it lacks a few luxury extras.
