Robotic massage chairs use electric vibrators with motors to do the massage.

Shiatsu massage chairs use massage-type methods using kneading, pressing, soothing, rolling, percussion, compression, tapping, and stretching. These procedures imitate the hands-on sensation of a professional massage therapist providing relief from muscle-related problems, headaches, stiffness and other physiological troubles.  The shiatsu massage uses pressure points on your body to clear energy channels between those pressure points for relaxation and relief from discomfort.

Zero-gravity chairs imply the position of zero-gravity. No, you will not be going into outer space where there is no gravity to experience “zero-gravity”. A zero-gravity chair is the reclining position of the chair that imitates the position of the astronauts when taking off for space. These chairs are in the same position—parallel to the floor and you lay in a horizontal position for even distribution of your weight on the chair.

This is supposed to relieve stress on your body. By doing this, you will achieve a more penetrating and concentrated massage involvement. You can feel the sensation of weightless from the lack of stress on your body. This posture of being horizontal stimulates circulation in your legs reducing swelling in the legs and ankles.

You might not feel weightless, but in the reclining pose you will feel comfy and enjoy a penetrating deep massage. The chair is expensive. $4000 and up might be justified for a chair to be used in the privacy of your home anytime you want to jump on board.

Floor Space Needed for the Massage Chair
Massage chairs that recline can be bulky and take up considerable space.  There is no set floor space defined for the chair you are considering For a reclining chair, you will need space from the wall that is the height of the back of the chair when flat. Each manufacturer will give the chairs dimensions, including the back height.
Some massage chairs have wheels to move from place to place and different rooms. If you purchase a chair with an ottoman, the circular base is usually 24-inches. The ottomans with legs, are the square of the cushion size. Manufacturers give the dimensions of ottomans as well. All dimensions are available for you to compute your space requirements.
How much is a massage chair?
Prices vary by type and brand. You can find nice chairs for a few hundred dollars to high-end models with all the bells and whistles for over $8000.
However, you can also find models for under $500. Amazon has great deals, discounts, bonuses, and coupons to bring cost down.
Where to Buy a Massage Chair
You can look in the phone book, however, if you do not live in an area that sells massage chairs, you cannot see the chairs in person and do a test drive.
Online is a viable place to look and Amazon is the best place to check where they offer many deals to lower your cost. You can read customer reviews, compare prices, and read the specifications.
Weight of Massage Chairs
Check specific brands you have an interest in. Chairs vary in weight according to the components. The weight of a person using the chair will be shown as well.
Electrical Power or Massage Chairs
The USA uses 110/120-Volts and 50/60 Hz and the amperage varies by chair. Outside of the USA the electrical is 240-Volts and sometimes chairs can be converted from 110/120-Volts with an adapter. Massage chairs use about 55-Watts at about $1 per month.
Most companies and Amazon ship via ground transportation using reputable freight companies. The freight companies will not deliver inside your home or business. They will leave the box curbside or on the porch due to insurance liability. This is not different from UPS or FedEx policies. The freight company will call you at the phone number you gave when ordering when they are near the delivery location. The tracking information will be emailed to the address you provided.
