If compromises are not for you, and you’re unwilling to accept anything but a flagship massage chair model, you will likely be delighted by my elaborate Superior SMC-6850 massage chair review. This model is called Superior for a reason…or many reasons, rather!
The top of massage chair engineering, the Superior SMC-6850 is a well-rounded combination of powerful features and unbelievable comfort. With features such as ultra precise pneumatic massage techniques and the unique 3D massage system with built-in heat pad technology, this model will cater to a large variety of needs, being that simple relaxation after a stressful day at work or a pretty serious case of muscle tension of chronic back pain (don’t forget to talk to you doctor about the latter though, as massage therapy is still only complimentary).
Another amazing feature most Superior SMC-6850 reviews mention is that the chair can recline as far back as 170 degrees – how cool is that! This makes you feel light as a feather, and I challenge you not to snooze in this position.
Have you seen the Terminator movies – artificial intelligence and stuff? Well, the future is here! The Superior SMC-6850 massage chair is controlled by many complex microprocessors that precisely scan your entire body detecting every bump, curve, and indentation. The chair is then recalibrated to suit your individual physiology, dramatically increasing the benefits you get from the chair massage therapy session.

Here’s a more elaborate list of the model’s features which I couldn’t leave out of this Superior SMC-6850 review:
- 3D Massage technology which “pops out” further than any other massage roller, guaranteeing the he fullest and deepest massage possible
- Shoulder Wrap Pressure Massage with unique rollers that actually move up and over your shoulders, as well as at the base of your neck, kneading the muscles and relieving tensions you didn’t even realise existed! Many of the areas targeted by this feature are sadly overlooked by other massage chairs, despite the fact that they take a lot of stress daily.
- Heated massage pads are located in the backrest, and they will warm and loosen your muscles for superior comfort. Loose muscles mean deeper, more effective massage – so you get to relax and get the most out of your rollers at the same time!
- 3D Air Massage features sophisticated airbag cartridges aligned throughout the chair. Unlike the systems implemented in many other chairs, these move independently of one another, allowing for smoother air massage motions that target individual muscles as opposed to large muscle groups.
- Ankle and Calf Stretching Massage with the leg rests moving independently from one another. This allows them to stretch, contract, and expand your ankles and calves to increase flexibility and improve blood flow. Your ankles will be gently rotated in multiple directions, giving ultimate relief after a long day on your feet.
- 9 distinct 3D Massage styles including kneading, knocking, finger pressing (acupressure), tapping, rolling, pushing, compression, tracking, and Thai stretching; the areas targeted include neck, shoulders, back, hips, and even waist.
- Zero Gravity Reclining. First introduced by NASA researchers, Zero Gravity position takes all pressure from your back, relieving tension and making you feel like a feather.
- 3D Body Scan System assesses and maps your entire body shape using the smart microprocessors and advanced optic sensors. This way a personalised massage experience is guaranteed.
- Massive total target area with the rollers that really go the distance. They move up to 31″ up and down your back, and with a fully-extended wingspan of 7.5”, covering your entire body unlike many other chairs on the market.
- Full-Function Arm Massage with an independent armrest allows for the armrest to move in conjunction with the chair while continuously delivering a sophisticated compression massage, improving circulation in your arms and providing relief from annoying conditions like carpal tunnel (in combination with other treatments, presumably).
- Full Stereo Entertainment System features built-in stereo speakers and Mp3 decoder. All you have to do is is jack in your headphones and upload your favourite songs…and enjoy the massage experience enhanced by your favourite tunes!
- Wonderful design featuring highest quality stitched synthetic leather which is very pliable and resilient, as well as extremely cozy and just all round beautiful. Your comfort is priority here, no compromise!

The good news is it’s not that difficult to find this model on special due to its extreme popularity. If you’re lucky enough, you may be able to score the Superior SMC-6850 for about $$$$ – and yes, I’m talking new and shiny. If you’re happy with second hand, the deal can get even better.
