Gintell Rest N Go Station

Have you seen these massage chairs sitting around major shopping malls lately? You know, those that requires you to input some cash for a couple of minutes of relaxation. Well, recently I've noticed a sudden increase in these machines especially the ones by Gintell, aptly named Gintell Rest N Go Massage Stations

Now, I've never taken a second glance at these massage chairs, not until recently while I was with Janice shopping at Gurney Plaza Penang. Feeling tired from the endless shopping, or at least that's me, I noticed quite a number of folks were trying out this Gintell Rest N Go Station massage chairs. Gingerly walking up to the chair, initially I had trouble locating the slot to input the cash, but soon enough it was all good, and we were ready to get some soothing relaxing "mechanical" massage.

Everything was automated, with the display showing which part of your body is being massaged

Being a first timer to this machine, I did not know how much to feed in, and slotted in an RM5 note. Janice was the first to have a go, and the Gintell Massage Chair immediately jolted to live with a 15 minutes countdown. Everything was automated without a choice for the user to customize anything, but we didn't need to change anything anyway.

RM1 will get you a 3 minute massage session, where the mechanical rollers will move from your neck down to your buttocks giving them a good squeeze. There was even a separate leg massager which gives a good squeeze as well. It wasn't a bad experience at all, the Gintell Massage Chairs gave a much needed relief for the aching muscles. Who says shopping isn't tiring must be a woman, or a guy that has not accompanied a lady shopping before!

And that's me giving the thumbs up, I'm annoyed with my fat stomach now. 

A short check with the Gintell outlet later on saw the same massage chair going for more than RM3k per chair. The Gintell Rest N Go Station is rather popular with shoppers nowadays, and I personally don't find anything wrong with it. In fact, for RM1, the 3 minute massage is more than adequate for the average shopper. Of course, more RM will give you a longer relaxation session. Have you tried them out yet? 

P.S: It's already the end of the year, so it's time for me to wish a Happy New Year 2012 to all of you folks out there! May the new year bring lots of prosperity and success to you and your family.

  7. I really like this chair... its a super good marketing method! I think they earn more by doing this rather than selling one of this machine, haha.
