How Much Does A Massage Chair Cost?

Sharing is caring!

I love massages, and can never have enough. Since I carry a lot of tension in my neck and back I’ve looked into massages chairs as a way to keep myself loose and relaxed.

How much does a massage chair cost? You can find a decent quality massage chair for around $2,500. There are more expensive chairs that go for between $6,000 - $10,000, and they come with more options, features and massage styles. There are also other cheaper types that cost around $200 - $500.
