I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love massage chairs.
They have amazing therapeutic qualities that can not only relieve me of all the pent up stress but significantly improve my blood circulation as well.
Japan is known for making some of the best massage chairs in the market. and the one I want to talk to you about today is the Fujiiryoki EC-3800, which Dexter, a friend of mine owns.
Fujiiryoki was founded in 1954, and over the past 60 years, it has been known as the pioneer of not just massage chairs but health equipment all around the world. Their EC-3800 is the latest addition to their massage chair line up, which has been taking over the market by storm.
So, let me tell you a bit about what makes it so brilliant.
Why should you purchase the Fujiiryoki EC-3800?
Simple yet high-quality design
Dexter never really makes a major investment before thoroughly researching the product that he wishes to get; the same was true for the Fujiiryoki EC-3800 as well. He was only sold on getting it when he learned that the manufacturer always tries to go the extra mile with each of their products.
At Fujiiryoki, both the designer and the engineer work closely together to make a product that not just boasts a superior build quality but houses all of the latest scientific features as well. This is what keeps their massage chair designs simple, yet carry a touch of sophistication and elegance.
Deep Tissue Massage
The Deep Tissue Massage feature is what Dexter loves the most about the Fujiiryoki EC-3800. There are a lot of massage chair models in the market which miss the mark by providing customers massage therapy which is either too soft or too strong. The technique that the EC-3800 uses is perfect at providing exactly what the user is looking for.
Dexter has a desk job at a bank, where he needs to be present in his seat for hours on end. This often leads to him suffering from lower back pain and cramps, which in turn is a result of poor blood circulation.
This is where the Deep Tissue Massaging 4D rollers come in handy. The rollers have 12 levels of intensity that Dexter cycles through and gets a very thorough spa-like massage within the confines of his own home.
Apart from choosing the intensity level, the EC-3800 will help users to even customize the position of the roller on the back, and provide a very personalized massage session.
Dexter gets to pick the type of massage style that he wants, depending on how his day went. And this is perhaps the only model on the market that lets the user have absolute control over all of its settings, except for the massage time.
The time is constant at 15 minutes, which cannot be customized, but you can always choose a new message as soon as one ends.
One of the best full body massage
The EC-3800 has 44 airbags which are located strategically throughout the whole chair. From the shoulder region to the waist, hip, and feet, each of the areas has 5 levels of intensity you can choose from and get a completely customized full body massage experience.
The intensity of each part can be customized, so you can set the chair to give you a light foot massage while getting a deep tissue rub from the shoulder airbags.
Moreover, if you’re not up for creating your own full-body massages, the chair also comes with some preset 28 different massage styles that you can try.
What could have been better?
Though not an issue for most (definitely not for Dexter), the lack of the massage time adjusting feature of the EC-3800 can be rather problematic for many users; this is something I feel that Fujiiryoki should look into.
- Has one of the best design quality for a massage chair of its class
- Provides an incredible deep tissue massage
- Will let you custom create your very own massage style
- Helps significantly to boost blood circulation and relaxation
- The massage time cannot be adjusted in any way
The Fujiiryoki EC-3800 massage chair is by far one of the best home relaxation tools that I have ever come across. Not only does it come with a variety of customizable features, but it will also let you create your massage style to suit your varying needs and requirements.
