How do you choose the best massage chair?
It is cab be done, but…
Only the Titan brand selling 20+ full body massage chair models at the moment.
How do you choose?
After going over countless reviews, consulting with a few experts (as always), and compare the benefits of all Titan chair models I can draw some concision that hopefully will help you decide which chair you want.
All that helped me put together the list of top 10 Titan massage chairs.
I’ve discussed the features, the benefits, and all their pros and cons.
Also, I will suggest a few BETTER alternatives below…
You may have already heard about the Titan brand of massage chairs because it’s the same company as Osaki.
Titan is among the leaders in its branch, but it comes with a unique selling proposition: high quality at an affordable price.
My view is that Titan commits fully to respecting this promise. For one, Osaki massage chairs are inexpensive because they’re made in China. Titan, on the other hand, brings its enormous experience in building massage chairs, combined with stellar craftsmanship.
While Titan is a reliable brand, you might find other brands that retail more expensive massage chairs, but with a lot more bells and whistles.
For instance, even in the lowest price range, you can find better alternatives like the Infinity 8500 or the Kahuna LM-6800.
Human Touch and Brookstone are other major competitors for Titan.
Titan Massage Chair Reviews 2021 / Product Line Overview
1. Titan Pro Jupiter XL (This is Best-Selling Model From Titan)
Pro Jupiter has plenty of quality characteristics, plus it’s Titan’s flagship model.
It is their best-selling model too, although it’s among their most expensive massage chairs.
So why do I like it? Firstly, I think it boasts a user-friendly design, starting with its space-saving technology.
Its XL size might not be fit for a small apartment, but it accommodates users up to 6’6’’.
The Jupiter has built-in Bluetooth so you can listen to music, as well as an easy-to-use remote.
The massage is good as well.
The 3D technology can accurately find your painful knots and apply constant pressure to massage them.
Unfortunately, the rollers can’t be controlled manually.
I also like the L-track massage chair because it contours the shape of your spine, but extends to your glutes and upper thighs for a complete massage experience.
All this means that Jupiter can offer a decent, yet average, back massage.
The dual-action foot massage is another point in its corner, with both rolling and scraping.
The rolling motion mimics how a therapist’s thumbs would feel pressing on the bridge of your feet to your balls.
The scraping motion has the rollers move forward and back, between your bridge to your heels.
Combine that with the airbag massage, and it becomes exceptionally relaxing.
Another benefit of this triple massage is that your blood circulation is improved, as well as any chronic pain, especially from plantar fasciitis.
The head compression massage is another unique feature of Jupiter.
The built-in airbags inflate and squeeze your temples, to relax you and to reduce stress pain or migraine pain.
The two Zero-G positions are another decent feature, as Jupiter sustains your whole body weight.
It relieves spinal pressure and alleviates pain, plus it makes your massage feel deeper.
For this price range, the second zero-Gravity massage position, which offers a more significant inclination, is a bonus.
The lumbar heat therapy is another decent feature, as it helps loosen tense muscles and improves your blood circulation.
I also liked the twisting hip massage with airbags, which can alleviate sciatica pain.
The arm and shoulder compression massage is terrific for correcting a poor posture, especially after sitting around at your desk for a long time.
However, the foot and calf massage uses just airbags, so it’s good but not perfect.
A roller massage for this area would have been better to improve circulation and reduce pain.
That said, I like the vast array of choices and optimizations.
You can choose between 10 auto programs, five massage techniques, including the advanced Shiatsu, there are five-speed levels, five airbag intensity levels, and the massage width can be adjusted on three levels.
With that in mind, Infinity 8500 and Infinity 8500X3 are better alternatives.
Infinity 8500 has the additional inversion therapy which, combined with zero-G, makes for a deeper, more therapeutic spinal massage.
IT-8500 also boasts mechanical foot rollers for a better foot and calf massage, plus spinal correction, which complements the shoulder massage to improve your posture.
Other therapeutic characteristics that make the IT-8500 better are the seat compression massage and sway for sciatica pain, and the body stretch.
This Tru-Grip V stretch done with airbags releases spinal pressure effectively.
In addition to this, the 8500X3 boasts reflexology foot rollers that target acupoints on your feet, offering a deep tissue sole massage.
Besides, the zone function massage allows the chair to focus on a painful knot for as long as you like.
Summary: Jupiter can provide a therapeutic, relaxing massage, but it’s a bulky chair.
2. Executive (This is Second Best Selling Model from Titan)
Pro-Executive is usually retailed at around $3000.
Another one of the best chairs in its category, Pro Executive has two top characteristics: excellent foot massaging, plus knee heat along with lumbar heat.
The 3D massage rollers offer a massage, as they can move in and out of your spine, not just left and right.
The 61 airbags can effectively compress your body to reduce blood pressure and relax you.
I also liked the three memory slots so that you can save your customizations, and the two zero-G positions to relieve spinal pressure and deep-massage your back.
The toe massage is a rare feature among massage chairs so that I would buy this one just for the stellar foot massaging.
The shoulder and arm massage are pretty decent too.
However, there aren’t a lot of choices and customizations. Only six auto-programs, but luckily the remote is easy to use because it’s color-coded.
Apart from the hip twist that can alleviate sciatica or lower back pain, I also liked the waist stretch.
The airbags inflate, and then your legs are pulled down, which creates a pulling action on your spine.
Summary: Pro-Executive is a stellar Titan chair for (lower) back pain.
Titan Pro Commander Massage Chair has similar features to the Jupiter and the Executive.
The 3D massage rollers offer a wide massage area, and they’re flexible, plus they move on an ergonomic LTrack that touches all the pressure points on your back and extends to your upper hamstrings.
The total body air massage is pretty decent, with 12 airbags that compress and decompress repetitively to improve your blood circulation and reduce pain.
The spinning reflexology rollers are what makes this chair unique because they press acupuncture points for a deep-kneading massage that relieves feet pain.
Another advantage, as opposed to the other two chairs above, is Pro-Commander’s third zero gravity level.
It adds another reclining position, lifting your legs even higher above your head, to make for an even deeper spinal massage. However, Pro-Commander boasts just lumbar heat.
It is a user-friendly chair, with a footrest that can extend up to 6.5 inches.
The Commander has more massage options than Pro-Executive, as you can choose from five automatic programs and four massage techniques, including Shiatsu.
The multi-language setting, intuitive remote, intensity and speed adjustments, plus the elbow and neck cushion are additional user-friendly characteristics.
Summary: Pro-Commander comes with three zero-G positions and spinning reflexology foot rollers, which alleviate back pain and plantar fasciitis pain.
Pro Alpha has a few similarities with Pro Jupiter, like the space-saving technology, Bluetooth, LTrack ad two zero-gravity positions.
They also have similar techniques, meaning Kneading, Tapping, Combo, and advanced Shiatsu.
All this means is you’ll get a decent, albeit average, back massage to relieve mild pain and relax you.
Pro Alpha is set apart by a memory function and dual-action foot rollers that provide a life-like massage to your feet.
These foot rollers are excellent to reduce foot and arch pain, as well as improve blood circulation.
You can choose from six automatic massage programs: Express, Wholesome, Oriental, Swedish, and Classic as well as the therapeutic Chiro.
This comfortable chair boasts another benefit: the back pillow.
LTrack chairs are renowned for their vigorous, sometimes painful, back massages, but the back pillow can reduce the massage intensity.
The adjustable shoulders are user-friendly, as the Pro Alpha can accommodate users of different sizes.
The air massage is decent too, with 28 airbags that cover your whole body.
Lumbar heat therapy improves blood circulation and unwinds sore muscles.
Besides, the side control panel is easy to reach, while the LCD monitor is intuitive for easy use.
Summary: Alpha is an inexpensive, therapeutic chair but could use more massage techniques and feet heat.
5. TP- Pro 8400
The TP Pro 8400 looks smart and stylish, but it has functional advantages as well.
The full-body scan identifies pressure points, adjusting the rollers as well as the foot extension to fit your body type.
This chair has a limited number of automatic massage options.
You can choose between five options, all of which revolve around the concept of relaxation and recovery.
The TP Pro 8400 isn’t what I’d call a therapeutic chair, more like a relaxation chair.
However, the zero-G position and lumbar heat are a couple of therapeutic functions you could use for your spine, especially if you suffer from chronic back pain.
The LTrack design is excellent for reducing back pain as well because the rollers touch all the pressure points on your spine. Besides, LTrack chairs offer a vigorous back massage.
The full-range foot massaging with two rows of spinning reflexology rollers, ankle knobs, and airbags improves blood pressure and reduces foot pain.
I also like the full range of intensity and speed adjustments for this chair, even though it has limited massage options.
Summary: 8400 is the best Titan chair for relaxing spinal massages and therapeutic feet massages.
6. Titan Luca V
Titan Luca V is one of the newer models, but it has similar features to the other Titan models.
It is a basic chair, with the basic characteristics that allow it to offer a decent massage.
In other words, there’s nothing special about it, except maybe the Bluetooth speakers which improve your massage experience.
The L-track that extends under your glutes and upper thighs makes for a complete massage experience.
The 16 airbags that cover your whole body for an airbag massage work OK, but again – nothing special about them.
The lumbar heat works, the extendable footrest accommodates bigger users, and the remote is easy to use.
In terms of massage styles, you get just four basic massage programs with five manual massage techniques, including the advanced Shiatsu.
The spinning reflexology foot rollers massage all your acupressure points, reducing arch pain.
Otherwise, I would have liked to see some more unique characteristics, like maybe more zero-G positions, ankle knobs, feat heat, a special hip swivel or body stretch, perhaps even a memory function.
But like I said, Luca V is just your basic massage chair.
For this price range, Kahuna LM6800 has more massage options, five manual techniques, calf heat, fixed massage spot, a vigorous Yoga stretch plus three zero-gravity positions, so it’s a better choice.
Summary: A basic massage chair for hobbyist users, Luca V offers decent massages especially if you’re on your feet for most of the day.
Pro Summit has a few improvements when compared to other Titan chairs. For instance, the S-L massage track comes with the best of both worlds.
So while it extends to your glutes and upper hamstrings, this track is better for total body stretches.
The dual reflexology foot rollers are another Titan mark, touching your acupuncture points for a deep-tissue foot massage.
You also get six manual massage techniques, two of which are advanced: Shiatsu and Punching.
I also love the compression air massage because it has a waist twist function that’s great for stretching and relieving spinal pain.
My data shows that this has therapeutic purposes, with many happy customers relieved of sciatica pain.
Besides, you can adjust the airbag massage on five intensity levels.
Apart from lumbar heating, shoulder heating is an excellent plus, making it a perfect chair to improve posture and to relax you.
Add to shoulder heating the effective upper arm, shoulder, and hand compression massage to unwind after a long day at the office.
The seat vibration is another extra for relaxation and unwinding tense muscles.
The Pro-Summit is user-friendly, with an intuitive remote, USB charger, space-saving technology, and 10-year warranty.
However, the Summit could use some improvements, like feet heat, Bluetooth connection, or memory function.
Summary: The TI Pro Summit offers a great foot reflexology massage and an excellent shoulder massage to improve posture.
8. Titan TP Pro Carina
The TP-Carina’s highlights are chromotherapy and three built-in memory programs.
Chromotherapy is done with the help of blue LED lights, which should relax you and help you go to sleep faster.
Chromotherapy reduces stress, anxiety, depression, and fights insomnia or other sleep issues.
The Carina isn’t an inexpensive Titan chair, and it boasts some of the trademark functions I’ve discussed above: L-track design for a full massage from your neck to your glutes, space-saving technology, zero-gravity, full-body airbag massage, foot rollers, and computer body scan.
There are six preset programs and five built-in massage styles, including the advanced Shiatsu and Flapping.
Otherwise, I would have liked to see more massage options and adjustments. As it is, you can only control the air compression intensity on three levels.
For this price range, the Kahuna LM6800 has more therapeutic advantages, including two extra zero-gravity, heat therapy, Yoga Stretch and Zone massage.
Summary: Titan Carina is a reliable chromotherapy chair, but lacks important functions for this price range, like heat therapy.
9. TI-Inversion Cloud Comfort (New Chair)
A new model, the Inversion Cloud Comfort is inexpensive and comes with a unique feature: inversion therapy. It elevates your legs above your head, which decreases leg pressure and improves blood circulation.
The added seatbelt makes this chair quite safe.
Cloud Comfort doesn’t have a roller design, though, so don’t expect a roller massage.
It’s a vibrating chair, which can offer relaxing massages, although not particularly effective in treating chronic pain.
The auto recline feature is user-friendly. I like the feel of this chair’s genuine leather upholstery because it’s so smooth.
I also appreciate the adjustments I could make, both in terms of intensity and the four vibration massage positions.
There’s just curbside delivery with this chair, though, so make sure there’s someone to help you carry it inside.
Summary: Cloud Comfort is an inexpensive chair for inversion therapy, but lacks the bells and whistles of a roller massage chair.
10. Titan TI-8700
The Titan Ti-8700 is another model with decent features, like the two zero-gravity positions to remove spinal pressure and offer a deep massage.
There are five automatic programs, lumbar heat, plus a decent foot and calf compression massage.
What I liked most about this chair is the outer shoulder and arm massage to correct poor posture.
The improved foot rollers are pinning reflexology massagers for deep-tissue foot massaging.
Another excellent feature is seat vibration, which can improve blood circulation and reduce lower-back or seat pain, including sciatica.
These two chairs have many therapeutic advantages, helping with chronic pain, including particularly vigorous back stretches and more zero-G options. Not to mention calf heat.
Summary: Titan TI-8700 offers a relaxing massage and can correct poor posture, but doesn’t have many options or therapeutic benefits.
Is Massage Chair Dangerous?
The recent discussion about the risks of massage chairs is not the first time that questions of hazard have been raised. In fact, physicians themselves raised some very similar concerns back in the early 1990s. However, they were dismissed at the time as being untrue and rooted in irrational fear and unfounded complaints. So what’s so bad about these chairs? According to buying guide, to start with, you should be aware that unlike stationary exercise equipment like weights or bicycles, the chair is not recommended for use by children or adults with limited leg mobility, balance issues, or minor mobility issues due to rheumatoid arthritis.
They’re also not recommended for those with back problems or head injuries.) Advertisement. It also comes with a staggering 10 to 16 motion-restricted positions that are meant to prevent injury, like back injuries, slipped discs, sprained ankles, and sprained wrists, among other common causes of injury. All that motion will wear out your body very quickly, and that applies not just to the legs but to your lower back and neck, too. Other common issues come from sitting for long periods of time, which can damage your lower back. It may lead to arthritis, but it also can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, and general fatigue. As I’ve written before, your seat shouldn’t move to give you a massage (sharper image).
Is a Massage Сhair a Good Investment?
We are talking about a highly personalized offering, which may be focused on your skin, head, or back. A good masseur should be comfortable around all body parts and sensitive to each individual in order to deliver a massage that is relaxing and soothing. Some spas offer one-to-one, which can be a very good service as they really make you feel as though you’re in the company of a friend. In this case, you’ll usually be able to book in advance, and it is ideal if you want to go at a time that is most convenient for you. The minimum age for a massage is 18, but if you are 18 and under, you should ask for this to be waived on request as sometimes an 18-year-old massage is very uncomfortable for anyone of any age.
How Much Do Massages Cost in a Massage House? There’s no way of knowing what you’ll end up paying until you book a massage at a massage house, which you’ll find when you Google. Usually, a half-hour massage will cost between £5 and £10, a full-hour massage will cost from £10 to £20, and a full-body massage will cost £15 to £30. Is it good to Eat Before a Massage? No, as a massage isn’t a form of exercise and would require a lot of sitting still.
Is it Bad to Use a Massage Chair Everyday?
As the chair you sit in becomes old, the springs are weak, and the joint and structure become kinked, there is a risk of injury and damage to your neck and spine. If you find your neck pain and/or headaches persist, then there may be damage to your disks. Or maybe your spinal cord is kinking. With such a great amount of manipulation, one might take into account the detrimental effects of long-term usage.
Daily massage chair use can irritate the muscles of your neck and shoulders. While having a massage each day may help you relax, over time the muscles are often so tight and cramped, they cannot stretch. This is why this type of chair should be rotated out every few months. It’s best to use one of these chairs on a fairly regular basis, in short bursts at worst. It’s best to use one of these chairs on a fairly regular basis, in short bursts at worst. There are long-term cases of scoliosis due to regular massage usage. A relative of Sigmund Freud wrote about a little girl suffering from scoliosis.
The Titan/Osaki brand has good customer service which is easy to reach and pretty responsive. You can reach them by phone at 1-888-848-2630 or email. For warranty requests and service advice, or for an RMA number request please contact the Titan Chair LLC Client Service department.
The Titan brand has some reliable models. Pro Jupiter XL is by far the best, with two zero-gravity positions, stellar sole and arm massages, lots of customizations and it can fit a lot of users.
All Titan massage chairs offer functional, basic massages, though. Some have unique massage features like Carina’s chromotherapy or the TP-8400’s ankle knobs, but all of them are in the affordable price range.
However, there are other more therapeutic massage chairs even in the same price range. I’ve already told you guys about the Infinity 8500 and 8500X3, as well as the Kahuna 6800.
Hopefully, that will help you make an informed choice – but come back here and tell me all about it when you do!
