If you’ve got stress, you’ve got knots. If you’ve got knots, you’ve got neck and back pain. If you’ve got neck and back pain, you need a massage. And that can get expensive. (Especially if you’re a big-tipping regular at Madam Suzette’s Super Happy Rub and Tug Palace.)
Having a massage chair at home helps, but paying somewhere in the neighborhood of $1500 and up can put a big knot in your wallet. Which causes more stress. And more knots. (It’s a vicious cycle.) The iJoy 130 Robotic Massager from Human Touch can help ease that stress in a couple of ways.
Big, thick, low and comfortable-looking, with four powerful massage modes – rolling, kneading, compression and percussion – the iJoy is programmed to feel like the hands of a trained professional. (It’s so close, it’s the preferred technology for the American College of Chiropractic Orthopedists.)
The back manually reclines to let you lie back and enjoy while you use the retractable remote to choose one of three pre-programmed, 15-minute massage sessions, or pause to focus on a specific 3-inch area. There’s a removable massage softening pad for those of you who need it a little harder every now and then. And a child safety lock keeps Junior from kneading his way to an emergency room visit.
The iJoy 130 will run you $749, about half the cost of other massage chairs, or less than roughly eight traditional massage sessions. Without the “tip”.
