The Premier massage chair is part of the entourage for the best massage chairs on the market; some feel it is the best. Premier massage chairs are produced in the orient by Premier Health Products. Looking at most Premier models, one gets the feeling that their designers started with the image of a guy in his den with a TV remote in his hand. The gals won’t mind though, especially when they see Premier chairs in optional colors.
Massage chairs made by Premier offer
numerous health benefits. Users gain a sense of relaxation and a release from
stress that contributes to mental well-being but is also a precursor to
treating more serious problems. Muscle tension is reduced and relaxed yet
muscles are stimulated leading to better blood circulation and lymphatic flow.
Relaxed muscles relieve pressure on sore joints and spine and increase
flexibility allowing for more comfortable and safer movement. And in such a
hurried world, Premier chairs remove you from the hustle and bustle of your
daily life and make relaxation and rejuvenation part of your everyday life,
Every massage chair attempts to
mimic the trained hands of massage therapists and most emulate either or both
of two massage techniques, the Shiatsu method, a deeper massage sometimes
referred to as ‘accupressure’, and the Swedish massage, a gentler technique
involving long flowing strokes. Premier presents itself as following the
Shiatsu method but draws from both depending on the model.
Premier chair models, like the
Premier PHP2022, PHP2023, PHP2026, and the Premier PHP2027–sold exclusively at
Relax The Back and top-of-the-line at about $3500–vary in dimensions (an
important consideration for larger users), massage intensity, massage range,
session programs, and other features including optional leather upholstery, but
individual models may offer certain features others do not, regardless of
price. The Premier PHP2022 incorporates so-called anti-gravity technology which
extends its recline angle to 190 degrees, among other things, but does not
include heating elements and vibration like other models. The PHP2027, in
addition to most other features, is equipped with air massage. Vibration is
standard in the PHP2023 in the footrest where it is not found in other models.
And warranties may differ between models, as well. Prices range from a little
over $2000 to $3500.
Prospective buyers of Premier massage chairs should be aware that, as with all Shiatsu massage chairs, initial sessions may cause soreness or even headaches since the Shiatsu method involves deep massage including compression and percussion movements. Start out slow and easy, that’s the best advice, and you’ll enjoy the long-term benefits of a Shiatsu massage in a Premier massage chair soon enough.
