Not only are massage chairs incredibly relaxing, but they can be therapeutic as well! One of the biggest benefits you can get from a massage chair is relief from chronic or acute pain or discomfort. Whether you’re struggling with sore shoulders or tight calves, massage chairs can . In this series, we’re breaking down the best chairs for different areas, starting with something a lot of us are all too familiar with: a sore neck and shoulders!

If you are someone that needs a specific part of the body massaged more than others for therapy, comfort or rehabilitation, you want to be able to control where the massage chair focuses on. If you just get a chair that only has a few programs, you may have to go through an entire massage cycle for the chair to hit that one sore spot just for a minute or two. Being able to customize where the rollers and air compression focuses goes a long way in therapeutic massage.

So, is sore neck and shoulder relief what you’re after? Here are a few things you want to look out for:

  1. Body scan technology. This technology will scan your body and make a note of your pressure points, adjusting the position of the rollers based on the scan results to give you a specialized massage where you need it most.
  2. A headrest with head and neck massagers.
  3. Heat therapy for neck and shoulders. Chairs with heating capabilities will help further relax and release your sore, tight muscles.

All that in mind, are a couple of the best chairs we recommend for targeted shoulder massage!
