Now you can remove the connections. The air hoses and the wire connection. The footrest is completely free from the rest of the chair. You can put it in some other place now.

6. Unzip the Sidearm

The next step is to remove the arms. Again, we have to deal with the zips before proceeding. Unzip the cushion from the inside of the arm. Here, I will guide you with only one side. You have to repeat the process for another side yourself. Disconnect the clips if any.

7. Remove the Sidearm

Underneath the cushions inside the side arms, some bolts hold the side arms together with the seat. To disassemble it, you have to unscrew all the bolts on the chair. There can be a different number of bolts depending on different models. Usually, there are four bolts.

Unscrew the bolts, pull the sidearm from the holes, and separate it from the seat. Carefully put it on the side and check for further connections. You need to disconnect three air hoses. Some models have them tightened with screws. Detach them using the right tool. Remove the connections and you are good to go. Do the same on the other side of the chair that is the other arm side.

8. Remove the Shoulder Support

In some models, there is an option to remove the shoulder support while disassembling. The process isn’t much different. You have to unzip the cushioning. Check for bolts and unscrew them from the inside of the chair. You may also find the bolt covered from the outside. In that case, remove the cover and unscrew the bolts. Then you have to pull out the support from the base and remove the connections.

If your model doesn’t have this option then leave this step. If you are unsure about it, read the guidebook given with the massage chair.
