There are several main differences between massage tables and massage chairs. First, massage chairs can be portable, whereas massage tables are stationary for the most part. Portable tables do exist, but are not as common as portable chairs. Massage tables require patients to lie down in order to receive a massage. Massage chairs allow patients to receive massage therapy from a seated position. Finally, when you give a massage with a massage chair, you will not have to bend over quite as far as you will with a table.
Key Features: The features that differentiate one massage chair from another are reviewed in the key features category. The Orion massage chair features a Hawaiian massage which provides a flowing, swaying motion. The swaying massage motion is performed by the back rollers and provides good back coverage. The M-2 comes with an eight massage head system built into the seat for the buttocks and thighs. The massage heads are on a rotary mount and providing thorough therapeutic relief. Select from 3 levels of massage intensities. Additionally, vibration is also available for the seat. The vibration helps to stimulate the capillary vessels to increase blood flow. This is a well thought out massage chair for its price range. Overall Rating for the Omega M-2 Orion for features is 18.
Comfort & Ergonomics: Comfort and Ergonomics helps with relaxation. In a massage chair the body should fit well in the chair and should be comforting to the body. The Orion has a plush back rest cover and a large rectangular shoulder pillow. The back cover is good, but the second pillow is too wide and perhaps too thin. The fit of the chair is otherwise comfortable. The curved armrests are very comfortable and the chair can be adjusted from 115 degrees to 170 degrees. Another plus is the leg rest is extendable an extra 4 inches. The paddle mechanism in the calf massager is effective and can be positioned for maximum effect. The manual levers are fairly intuitive in their position. Our rating in this category is 17.
The many benefits of massage therapy have been recognized since 4-500 years B.C. Records show that massage was widely used in China, Greece, India, Egypt, Rome and more. These ancient societies fully recognized the many benefits of massage therapy. Since prior to 1980 massage chairs have been available. These chairs provide a full range of computer-driven massage programs. It's like having an expensive weekend at the spa available at any time for their owners.
