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.

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!

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.
