I love massage, and I’m always longing for massage. But if I have to visit a massage center in order to get one, I find that it’s too troublesome. And even if I want to, I do not have the luxury of time to do it.
So, you can imagine my excitement when OSIM asked me if I’m interested to review their latest massage chair, uAngel. My immediate respond was, “Sure, bring it on QUICKLY!”
I first caught a glimpse of uAngel during the Cold Storage Kids Run roadshow. My first impression of this massage chair was that it’s really compact. It looks like a small home sofa with contemporary design. But with just a touch of a button, it transforms delightfully into a full-body massage chair!
When this awesome uAngel massage chair was delivered to my house, the first person who was hogging the chair is our boy, Edison. He was smitten by the chic design of the chair, its cute back rest and petite size.
And when I finally had a chance to sit on it, my first reaction was “Aahhhhhh!”, “Wow, wow!”, and “Ooohhh, ooohhh!” The intense squeeze makes me go “Aahhhhhh!” and “Wow!” When my mind and body finally immersed in the luxurious massage, I was all “Ooohhh, ooohhh”.
A heavenly feeling that instantly melts my shoulder and back ache away, leaving me feeling very, very relaxed. It’s so enjoyable that I can fall asleep in it, and when I wake up, I feel totally rejuvenated. That’s how I would describe it.
Despite its compact size, its massage power is surprisingly intense. Its massage function is very comprehensive too – focusing on the neck, shoulder and lumbar, which is exactly what I need. Working an office desk-bound job from 9am to 6pm often leaves me with stiff shoulders and neck.
In addition, OSIM uAngel is equipped with all the massage techniques that a professional massage therapist can do, including squeeze-and-knead, tapping, roller reflexology and vibration. Its retractable leg massager provides an invigorating massage to tired feet and legs.
There are five different massage modes to suit your needs. Personally, I prefer the “De-Stress” mode. It uses lower intensity massage techniques, thus making it suitable for night time. It’s perfect to unwind my mind and body after a busy day, and before I go to bed. And I sleep better after the de-stress massage too!
At any time of the day, when I need to charge up my body and mind, I’ll go for the “Energise” mode. The high energy massage instantly perks me up, and makes me achieve a heightened sense of alertness.
Comes in a suite of 5 colours, OSIM uAngel can easily match in different home interiors and settings. We have a yellow sofa set with dark brown furniture in our living room. So, we chose the Mystique Grey and it matches perfectly with our home interiors. The metallic brushed upholstery is expressive in design and easy to maintain.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, the best thing about OSIM uAngel is its compact size. Its back rest and leg massager can be fully retracted to give 34% more living space. It’s truly a space saver for cosy homes with limited space. It measures only 86cm by 70cm in armchair mode (fully retracted).
When you need a massage, it transforms into a therapeutic full-body massage chair at a touch of a button. And when you don’t, it transforms right back into a beautiful home sofa. That’s the beauty of OSIM uAngel!
I love OSIM uAngel because I can now enjoy massage anytime in the comfort of my home, with just a touch of a button. It’s like having a professional massage therapist on standby at home! It’s also very versatile; our family can indulge in multiple lifestyle enjoyment.
After a hard day’s work, the perfect way to unwind is to sink myself into OSIM uAngel and reward myself with a good round of massage. I feel that my hard work is all worth it!
The OSIM uAngel retails at a special introductory price of SG$1,988 (usual price $2,688). It’s available at all OSIM outlets, road shows and online at www.OSIM.com.
One last thing, there will be a Bloggers’ Facebook contest coming up in May, and you stand a chance to win an OSIM uPhoria leg massager. I’ll share more details of the contest when it is up.
