Automatic Body Detection
Automatic body detection refers to body scan technology. The chair has sensors that scan and map out your body’s unique shape. This lets you have a massage experience that is customized and tailored just for you without having to adjust any settings.
Built In Waist Heater
For old folks and athletic people, the lower back and the waist area are often painful areas that can benefit from a heat session. This massage chair comes with a built-in waist heater. Heating functions have become very popular in massage chairs due to the various health benefits, and concentrating it on your high-stress areas can lead to a more relaxing massage experience.
You get foot rollers and additional airbags in your calf area. These features gently but firmly massage these areas to give you relief. This is especially beneficial if you stay on your feet for extended periods during the day. The intensity is adjustable so you can have a firm or a more gentle massage.
Full Body Air Massage
Along with the customized air rollers, you also get a full body air massage feature. Air bags will gently compress and squeeze your body as you sit in the chair. This low-intensity massage can gently ease the tension from your muscles. The airbags start at your shoulders and go down to the bottom of your feet. There are additional massage bags in your lower extremities.
Along with the concentrated waist heat feature, you also get total heat therapy. This heat therapy starts at the top of your shoulders and neck area, and it moves down to the bottom of your feet. You can adjust the heat intensity quickly and easily. Also, you can pinpoint areas of your body where you want the heat to be warmer.
Six Types of Massage
You can choose from six types of massage with this chair to customize your experience to suit your needs.
- Knead: Kneading massage can target large areas of your back and firmly squeeze and relax to massage your back or body.
- Knock: The knocking massage function will apply firm knocks to your body to massage deeper into your muscle tissue.
- Light Pinch: The light pinching feature will slowly work over large areas of your body by applying pinpoint pressure to your muscles.
- Pat: The patting massage feature will go up and down your body and apply very light patting motions to your body to gently release the tension.
- Rolling: A rolling massage will apply an even and light pressure to your body and slowly roll up and down your back.
- Walking: The lightest custom massage feature is the walking setting. It’s designed to mimic fingers gently trailing up and down your body.
Zero gravity is a chair position where your legs are elevated to just over your heart level. It mimics the position of astronauts as they’re getting ready to take off. When you get into this position, your weight settles in the chair evenly. This gives you the sensation that you’re floating or weightless. It helps to improve your circulation.
The chair comes equipped with built-in Bluetooth technology. This allows you to hook your Smartphone up to the chair and stream your favorite music or media. You can relax with your favorite music every time you enjoy a massage.
You get a remote that is very user-friendly. The remote lets you quickly and easily change or set your massage settings. You can also adjust the heat settings with it, and you can adjust how firm or soft your massage is.
The speakers are located right by your head so you can stream your music through Bluetooth. You don’t have to play it loud to be able to hear it because the chair is designed to run quietly as well.

Complete Core Features For An Amazing Price
For a little over a thousand bucks, you get zero gravity, body scan tecnology, automatic programs, foot and calf massage, and bluetooth speakers. It’s an unbelievable number of features for this price. The massage chairs that we’ve reviewed with these same features are usually mid-priced or premium chairs that cost several thousands of dollars. In short, the Real Relax Massage Chair is unbelievably cheap.
Full body heating
You get two kinds of heating from the Real Relax. The first is targeted at the waist area. The most common problem area that people want to apply heat to is the waist and lower back so this is perfect. Surprisingly, this chair has full body heating from the neck area to the soles of the feet. As of writing, I can’t recall any chair that has full body heating like the Real Relax so call me impressed. It must be fun and toasty to sit on this massage chair during winter or when you’re sore from head to foot.
Really Long L-Track
The Real Relax SL Track is aptly named. It gives premium massage chairs that cost thousands of dollars a run for their money with its amazing 57 inch track. I say amazing because just look at the length of the L-tracks on these luxury chairs.

Good Reviews As Of Writing
Surprisingly, most reviews for this model and brand have been good. The buyers were all happy at scoring such an excellent chair at such a low price. They are very happy with their buys.
There are a couple of exceptions though. In one case, the buyer’s chair stopped working after 2 weeks. All parts stopped working and there was a smell of burnt circuitry.
No Track Record
This massage chair’s price is unbelievable. It comes with a ton of features you don’t see in a budget chair.
So we should tell you to go ahead and get yourself a Real Relax massage chair ASAP, right? Wrong!
At this point, we don’t have the confidence to recommend this chair to you. It’s a relatively new release from a brand we aren’t familiar with. And unlike the massage chair brand celebrities that we know and trust, we have no prior experience with the Real Relax brand.

Sadly, the Real Relax website doesn’t add to their credibility. The site is not stable, has wonky links, and dodgy redirects. At the price point they are selling their chairs though, I can’t really fault them for having a weak website given how cheap their massage chairs are selling.
Not For Overweight or Big People
According to the ads, this chair can handle a 400 lb person. We don’t recommend it though. From experience, massage chair specs go over their actual capacity when it comes to user height and weight so we’ve learned to be cautious.
These big guys sat on the Real Relax and we agree that a person with a bigger frame will no longer fit in the chair.
The Space Saver Feature Doesn’t Look Great
To clarify, the space saving feature works. If you push up the foot rest, you save several inches off the front. It looks bad though and definitely not aesthetic. You also won’t be able to sit on the chair which is a bit of a face palm moment.
We much prefer the space-saving design on the Human Touch HT Bali. Its ottoman is retractable and adjustable. You can either hide it from sight or flip it over so that you can rest your feet on it as you would on a recliner.
No Memory Function
This is more an FYI rather than a complaint. This massage chair has no memory function so if you have a go-to custom massage program, you’ll have to set it or get a body scan each time.
Foot Rest: Tight Fit For Size 13 Or Higher
Just a word of caution if you’re Big Foot’s descendant. Size 12 feet are the max measurement for a comfortable feet for the foot rollers. Longer than that and it’s a tight squeeze.
If you’re on a limited budget and love all the amazing features on this chair, then you should add the Real Relax massage chair to your shortlist. Presently, a lot of buyers are very happy with their purchase and feel that they’ve scored a perfect buy. It works as advertised and people are very happy with its performance and quality.
The only problem is that there is a slight risk involved in purchasing this chair. We first heard of the brand in 2017 and the jury’s still out with regards to its durability and endurance. We heard back from a Real Relax massage chair owner who has had his chair for 4 months and so far, everything is going well. If this brand and manufacturer can show the same durable quality that say, Human Touch has, we’ll be very, very impressed.
