Repair manual for 257097

Hello, Deborah -

I am not finding an online repair manual for the Brookstone Shiatsu Foot Massager, model 257097.

If you have not already done so, you could call or email the Brookstone Customer Care phone number and ask a representative about the availabilty of such a manual or a location where you can take or send your massager for repair.

This is the link to the Brookstone Contact Us web page:

The phone number is in the upper right corner of the page, or you can complete the form there to send an email.

Note: A manual I found online (PDF document, Adobe Acrobat Reader software needed - free) for a different Brookstone foot massager, model BR-7100A, gives the following warning:
To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble or attempt to repair the unit. Incorrect repair can cause risk of electric shock or injury to persons when unit is used.

Where can I buy a good quality Shiatsu massage chair online for my office?

There are many online sites selling Shiatsu massage chairs, the problem with this is, you cannot tell how it feels. If you are set on purchasing the item online I strongly urge you to first visit some stores and try out some chairs. This is the only way you can know for sure the comfort you desire. Here are a few models/sites to browse through to get you started.

What is the difference between a Swedish massage chair and a Shiatsu massage chair?

A Swedish massage chair incorporates five different stroke patterns (sliding, kneading, tapping, vibration and friction) across muscles groups; while a Shiatsu massage chair combines pressing, swaying, patting and rolling movements while targeting pressure points.

How are shiatsu massage chairs?

I have a shiatsu massage chair and I love it. It is better than a standard electric massagechair because it is more targeted to problem areas. I highly recommend it.
