We have a Human Touch that is wonderful. But you could get by with a Homedics for around a $100.

About how much did your human touch cost you? the ones i have seen are a $1000 plus. Also if so was it worth the money?

@icemanforlife: When we bought it (HT135), around $1000 slightly used from our chiropractor. I looked on the site, and they have another type for just over $1000:

You seem to be able to pick up the iJoy version for around your price range on amazon, though. I haven't used that model, but it uses the same tech, so it should be comparable.

@okham: how long have you had it? the reviews talk about the motor burning out after a couple months. also 2nd question. my arches are the part of my foot that bothers me, is it good for that? Thank you :D

@drsilentg: We've had it for about 2 years, running 4-5 times per week, with no trouble. As for arches, it might be iffy. The rollers only come up about half an inch, so you have to set your foot pretty flat; not easy if you have high arches. But the heat is wonderful.

You might be able to find one out at Costco...that's where I picked mine up. Their returns are pretty forgiving, and I think they tack on extra warranty for stuff like this. Hope this helps!

@okham: Thanks for the info. I have been looking for a good chair. It is alot cheaper than always paying for a massage. Do you have any complaints about the chair you have?

@icemanforlife: Really, my only complaint is the I wish it were longer. But since I'm close to 7 feet tall this is a problem most folks don't have.

Also, it only does the back-neck area range, and lower legs/feet. That's not an issue for me, since I don't normally need my legs done, but it might be a consideration.

I've seen a few bad reviews for Homedics, and can attest to design flaws with their smaller back massager (the one with two rollers that stay in the same place). So when I went for a full-back one, I tried the Sharper Image competitor that was also available at BB&B. Don't forget that BB&B's coupons never expire, despite the printed expiration dates on them.

These chairs look pretty spectacular in the home and get pretty good reviews. It might be slightly too far over your 700 budget though. Maybe it's worth it?

@bingo969: Wow that chair looks amazing. I just need to find a way to convince the wife to let me spend that much. I wonder if it is really worth that much money compared to the cheaper ones.
