If you’re into the whole massage thing this chair is probably the next best thing to having a professional masseuse on staff. The OSIM uSpace provides a full body heated massage using 7 different techniques including rolling, kneading, rhythmic acupressure, tapping, vibration and more. When you sit down in the chair you can use the included remote to choose a pre-programmed massage routine, or let the ‘advanced sensors’ detect your personal acupressure points for a customized experience.
You can even connect a CD or MP3 player to the chair (which has built-in speakers) and the massage will then match the tempo, rhythm and intensity of your music. If that’s still not enough you can power-recline the chair to 170° and flip up the cocoon which will surround you with music from your player as well as one of three different mood-lighting sequences.
But if it’s your financial situation that’s got you stressed, the chair’s $4,995 price tag from Brookstone is probably not going to make you feel any better.
