Product Review: M-2 Orion Massage Chair by Omega

Sep 4, 2008
This review will focus on the entry level massage chair by Omega Massage. The M-2 Orion comes with some advanced features in a striking design. We will cover some of the pertinent features and also the warranty coverage with this massage recliner. Here is our review of the M-2 Orion massage chair.

Omega is one of the best massage chair brands and has national distribution. Distribution is important because it signifies that the company has retail clients and has staying power. There are many companies that sell massage chairs at home shows and the internet. Potential buyers must be very careful because they may end up with a chair that does not work and no parts and no service. If you stick with the top brands you will not have these problems.

Omega provides good warranty coverage for an entry level massage chair. The Orion comes with a 1 year warranty on the frame and 6 months on parts. Customer service is always another important issue. If you have an issue, then how well does the company handle these situations? Omega provides good customer service. They are responsive and diagnose problems quickly and accurately. We have had an excellent track record with Omega over the years.

We really like the design aesthetic of the Orion. It is sleek, modern and contemporary in design. It can compliment virtually any room in the house. We have seen our share of ugly chair designs and we think the M-2 is one of the best looking chairs on the market today. The padded armrests sweep back to the thin chair back. There is an attractive silver trim on the side panels given it an enhanced look and design.

The Orion is equipped with both manual massage techniques and full automatic programs. The manual massage techniques include swaying, kneading and rolling. We particularly like the swaying which is reminiscent of getting a Hawaiian style massage. The automatic programs operate the entire chair and provide full body coverage. There are 3 automatic programs with durations of 5, 10 and 15 minutes, respectively. The M-2 also allows you to select certain regions of the back. You can massage the full back, lower back or the upper back. The slim remote neatly tucks away in a molded slot underneath the armrest.

The recline on this lounger is from 115 to 170 degrees. The 170 degree recline helps to take the weight off your back and better distribute it for a more relaxing massage. The M-2 has 23 inches of travel for the roller mechanism for the back massage. We like that the chair back is relatively thin and the upholstery covers the back rather than have a hard plastic shell. The chair back and the leg rest operate with manual pistons rather than are motorized. This nice thing with the manual pistons are they bring either the chair back or the leg rest up by themselves.

The Orion has a vibration massage which can be set to three levels of intensity in the seat. This is a soothing massage to help improve the blood flow in the thighs and buttocks. There are 8 rotary massage heads built into the seat. The rotary massage heads can be set to three levels of intensity. They provide a penetrating massage for the buttocks and thighs. There is also an extra seat cushion for dampening the massage intensity.

The leg rest is adjustable in two different ways. You can raise the foot rest up to 90 degrees to a full horizontal position. You can also extend the foot rest out up to 4 inches. This is very convenient to position the leg rest massager exactly where you want on your legs. The calf massage can be set to 3 levels of intensity to provide the level of penetration desired. The leg rest is operated with a manual control lever to raise or lower.

The feature list of the Orion is nothing short of impressive for an entry level massage chair. They even have incorporated a negative ion generator which removes stale oxygen away from your body to provide a healthier massage. The sway massage is particularly effective. It quickly loosens tight back muscles and helps you to relax. You get one of the best warranty coverages from one of the top manufacturers. You simply cannot beat the M-2 Orion massage chair recliner in this price range.
