Dr. John Riehm, MD with over 34 years of experience and a former electronical engineer for General Electric, Zerox & Texas Instrument, calls the Medical Breakthrough Massage Chairs “one of the very best that you’re ever going to find!”


John G. Riehm, MD. is a medical doctor with 34 years of experience and a background in internal medicine from the University Of Louisville School Of Medicine. What makes him such a great doctor to work with is, he also has an electrical engineering degree and has worked for GE, Zerox and Texas Instrument!

As someone who suffers from ongoing leg pain for the last 5 years, and couldn’t find relief using other massage chairs, Dr. Riehm did some thorough investigating for himself. After reviewing hundreds of chairs, he realized that Medical Breakthrough Massage Chairs are superior in design and mechanics, applying his background in electrical engineering for some of the biggest companies in the US.

After ordering and using the chair for himself, Dr. Riehm was amazed to see that his chronic pain in his legs had become much more at ease. He also explained the lower back pain and scoliosis he has been suffering from which has proven to be severe in his case; his Medical Breakthrough Massage Chair has given him the timely and convenient relief he needs right now in dealing with his lower back pain.

“The features I feel are unique to Medical Breakthrough and you will have a hard time finding them in any other chair. I believe that this chair is one of the very best that you’re ever going to find. I really believe that the quality of it will express itself to you once you get in it and experience it yourself.” ~ Dr. John Riehm


“I am a medical doctor with degrees in electrical engineering and math. I can appreciate a machine with a well-executed design. My Medical Breakthrough chair is one of those machines.

Having used it every day (easy to get addicted to using!), my impression is ‘WOW!’

The hand and arm massages should help anyone with rheumatoid arthritis and any other hand arthritis. The back massages are much quieter and vastly better than the cheaper massage chair I had before. The neck massage is more thorough also.

I LOVE the hip rock setting as well as the shoulder massage, neither on my cheaper chair. What’s really cool is the stretch mode that stretches my back and hips.

The main reason I purchased this chair was to help with chronic cramps in my calves. The former chair didn't help much but this chair relaxes my calves tremendously!!!

I haven't tried the music option yet but expect nice results with that also. The negative ionizer is a neat touch also.

All in all, this chair is comparable in price to other high end chairs but seems to offer more and better options.

It truly seems to be a "medical breakthrough" in massage chairs.
