iJoy Massage Chair: A Complete Review

the best looking ijoy massage chair

The iJoy massage chair is a wonderful way to treat yourself, or someone you care for, to a luxurious massage. Your mental as well as your physical self will thank you. How many times do you take time to relax from the crazy schedule of modern living that we are all forced to keep? There’s a good chance that the answer to that question is, “not enough”. Well, you can do something about it, and you should!

The technology behind the Human Touch iJoy massage chair is amazing. It comes pretty darn close to replicating the feel and benefit of a human massage therapist. It uses different motor mechanisms to soothe and relieve the tight and sore muscles along your back and other areas in need. Human Touch has also implemented a quad roller that works to increase the blood flow in your body, uplift and benefit the immune system, and just plain feels amazing.

One of the main things I really like about the iJoy massage chair is how you can recline it, settle into a nice soft cushion, and let it take you away from all your worries. It sports different pre-programmed settings that allow you to lie back and escape as all main areas of your back are massaged and kneaded.

The iJoy massage chair comes in  2 different colors, black and brown. It would have been nice if there was a little more variety in color, but you can easily make black or brown fit in with just about any decoration. They fit into nearly any space with ease and won’t drive you crazy. Can you imagine a nice bright pink colored chair in your darkened den? Yeah, me either. It may seem like a simple thing, but the color does matter.

Of course, nothing is exactly the same as a human therapist in terms of the exact responsiveness to your individual pains and/or desires for massage therapy. For a robotic type machine, however, the iJoy comes pretty close. You get all sorts of motions: rolling, kneading, tapping, and compression that can relieve both normal stress as well as help to relieve chronic pain.

Speaking of pain, I happen to know what it is like to live with it all the time. If you can relate, then you know what it is like to bounce around from acupuncturist to chiropractor, to MD, to physical therapist, to massage experts, to monks, preachers, and gurus. It can get pretty depressing trying to find where to turn to help you deal with persistent discomfort. I have found that this massage chair is a great compliment to any of those efforts. Being able to retreat into a nice comfortable massage chair at any time you choose, and not be subject to someone else’s schedule is something you deserve to treat yourself to. In the big picture, these chairs are very affordable and a great addition to anyone’s home.

The Human Touch iJoy chair brings good looks, amazing massage technologies, variety, convenience and pleasure, all at a price well worth paying. Treat yourself to one and you will never regret it. It has become quite popular lately, and there are a few reasons for its popularity, the primary ones are: a full function massage chair starting at a reasonable price point, it’s smaller design fits better in many homes, and with a more modern design, it just looks cool!

There are three models of the iJoy, so which one is best for you? Let’s take a look at the basic differences between the three to help you make this decision for yourself.

First it is good to look at features included on all three models. For instance, all chairs recline and they come in two different colors: black and brown. They all include a removable massage softening pad, and a child safety lock. However, none of them include a built in foot rest for foot and leg massage, but there are matching ottomans available if this is important to you. Now let’s compare the individual models.

The base model iJoy is the 2310, starting around $599. This chair has three 15-minute preprogrammed massages: one for the entire back, one to relieve neck and shoulder stress, and one for the lower back. This chair features four different massage techniques: rolling, kneading, compression and percussion. If you do not want to use one of the preprogrammed massages, you can manually control (with the included remote) what type of massage that you want, and where you want it to be. There is a handy storage pocket on the chair for the remote.

The next iJoy massage chair model is the 2400, which typically runs about $200 more than the previous model. This chair has the same massage feature as the 2310, but there are upgrades in the chair itself. It has a soft suede finish, which is very comfortable and yet also easy to clean. In the left arm of the chair there is a built in space for the remote. When in place, the remote is flush with the top of the arm rest . The chair will recline further back, all the way to 170 degrees, so you are lying almost flat. The further back you are, the more intense the massage. But the really great thing about the recline feature is that you can recline back slowly and smoothly so that you can discover the perfect recline massage position for you.

The most expensive iJoy is model 2580, but it is only about $100 more than the 2400. Both the 2400 and the 2580 looks a bit beefier than the base model 2310. It also has the same basic massage feature as the other two chairs, plus it has the chair upgrades of the 2400. There are just a few upgrades to make this chair worth a bit more. In the right arm rest there is a cup holder. Plus it has an auxiliary power outlet for convenience. It also includes a more deluxe contoured head pillow, and wheels for easier mobility. It also has power recline.

To sum it up, the three iJoy massage chairs have basically the same massage features, but it is the chairs themselves that get more deluxe. With only a price difference of $300 between the base model and the deluxe model, it is really a matter of personal choice in how important those upgrades are to you. But regardless of what you choose, you are bound to be happy with any iJoy massage chair.
