The Relaxonchair MK-II Plus is a reasonably priced massage chair that offers a good mix of features. This massage chair has an L-style frame that will provide a comfortable and relaxing massage for the whole length of your back, from neck to buttocks.
The MK-II Plus has three levels of zero gravity positions which will distribute all your weight evenly for an enhanced massage experience. The chair uses a combination of rollers and airbags to produce the necessary pressure for every massage. There are 4 predefined massage programs you can choose from, or you can create your own program using one of the three massage techniques.
Features and Programs
The Relaxonchair MK-II Plus has a very good zero gravity massage feature. Your feet are elevated as high as your heart level, allowing it to function easier. The feet elevation also minimizes the strain gravity puts on your vertebrae, making the prone posture very comfortable. This feature will enhance the massage experience, increasing your body’s relaxation.
The chair’s L-frame design allows the rollers to glide from your upper back all the way under the seat for a thorough massage. The chair built-in sensors will detect the length of your spine, so the massage will be targeted just where you want it.
Besides rollers, this massage chair also uses air massage technology. This technology inflates and deflates airbags to provide an immersive experience. The airbags are located near your shoulders, arms, lower back, hips, thighs, and calves, and they can be operated simultaneously or separately. The airbags will really stretch your muscles, relaxing them in the process.
The chair’s calf and foot massager uses a combination of rollers and air-cell technology to provide a comfortable massage. This massager is adjustable, making it suitable for different sized users.
This chair also has a lower back heating feature. The feature uses 2 heating pads located in your lower back area to produce a comfortable sensation. The heated massage will relieve your lower back muscles.
Massage Techniques and Styles
The Relaxonchair MK-II Plus has 4 automatic massage programs, and you can create your own using one of the three massage techniques available. You can choose between kneading and tapping, or you can use a combination of both. The massage session can be 15 minutes long, but you can repeat or change it as you want without having to stop the chair.
The MK-II has a “spinal decompression” massage program. When you use this program, the airbags will pin your body in place and moves you so your legs and back muscles are properly stretched. This will lead to an enjoyable experience.
Another interesting massage feature is the “beauty hip massager”. This feature is designed to align your lower back to your hips and offer a compression massage. The experience is pleasant, but we don’t guarantee it will improve your hips’ aspect.
Massage Intensity and Speed
The MK-II has 3 speed and 3 intensity settings. The speed settings will change how fast the rollers move along your back, but they will also change the interval between each airbag activation. The intensity settings will control how much pressure is applied to each passing, and the differences between one setting and another are noticeable.
