BestMassage EC-06c Review
The whole idea behind Shiatsu massages is that you’ll walk away with less fatigue and less muscle stress. Throughout the day, your activities stress your muscles, leading to tightness and pain. And, you can massage these muscles to alleviate these unwanted symptoms.
The EC-06c offers several different massage methods for a full body massage:
- Power rollers to relax muscles
- Chop action tapping and flapping meant to soften fatty deposits, reduce stressed muscles and stimulate nerves
- Compression and percussion system to improve flexibility and posture
When you go to assemble the chair, you’ll need to have someone, or multiple people, help you as the chair arrives on a pallet in a box and weighs some 300 pounds.
The surface is a very soft, black leather.
There are 30 air bags that are meant to massage the lower body, and they work perfectly for the job. These air bags aren’t as thorough as the rollers, but they will hit the calves and feet for a great massage. Air bags are also near the thighs and buttocks as well as on the arm rests for a true massage experience.
When you sit down in the chair, you’ll immediately notice how comfortable this model is compared to other models. Immense cushioning allows for true comfort while you’re left selecting one of the three massage programs: fatigue, pain relieving and comfortable mood. There is even a heat switch that will warm the bottom of your feet.
Switching the intensity levels will allow you to further customize your massage experience.
While not as robust as higher-end chairs, the EC-06c does provide a near equal massage, which is impressive for any low-end model.
- Upper and lower body massage
- Stretching option for deep tissue massage
- 3 different programs for massaging
- Several intensity options
- Arm massage is lackluster
I will admit, I was surprised to see that this chair featured an arm massage, but I was a little let down as well. While included, the arm massage lacks any real intensity to do, well, anything worthwhile for arm tension.
With that said, the back, neck and lower body massage quality is unseen in this price range, so it’s definitely worth more than what you’ll find in mid-range models.
Do I recommend this massage chair? Absolutely. If you’re not too worried about the arm massage, the BestMassage EC-06c will greatly exceed your expectations. Even people with over a decade of chronic back pain found relief from this model.
