If you've ever considered a massage chair for your home or business, there might be a few blockers that immediately come to mind. Are they too indulgent? Is a massage chair an unnecessary extravagance? Or you might think adding one to boost revenue and profits is out of reach due to initial cost and ongoing output. But you might reconsider once you think about how long the list of pros is.
Massage has scientifically proven time and again to relieve stress, boost circulation, improve your cardiovascular health, and boost your immune system. Can you put a price tag on your physical and emotional well-being? Not really.
But even if hearing that makes you roll your eyes (I know. I hate when someone tells me I can't put a price on something, but my bank account begs to differ), there are plenty massage chairs that are within reach monetarily and wildly beneficial.
Similarly, if you're thinking of adding one or more to your business, it's worth running the numbers. Look at the long game, and you might be surprised at what you find. Think volume. Think wholesale. Think discounts.
There are a few key players in the massage chair world and Human Touch is among the best of the lot.
We've looked at all five Human Touch massage chair lines, and the models in each, so you don't have to.
Perfect Chair Line
If you think massage chair equals something that looks great in a salon or doctor's office, but isn't something that exactly "makes the room" in your house, check out this line.
They're strikingly modern, aesthetically pleasing, and no one will know they're massage chairs.
Just don't be surprised when your unsuspecting guests won't leave your house.
These chairs are all about the back: improving posture and spinal health, and relieving pain.
If you're a fan of midcentury modern furniture, and you happen to know your chair designers, think Eames. The PC 610 is a looker. Sure, it's a recliner and not a lounge chair + ottoman, but let's not quibble over details.
It looks great, and it's designed for form over function, as things are supposed to be. Oh how I long for those days.
These chairs are gorgeous. Also, if you're choosy, you're going to be happy with your options.
You get to choose the color of not only the frame, the type of leather (premium, top grain, or sofhyde), as well as the color (one to six options, depending on the grade you select). But enough about looks.
This chair is recommended by doctors, as it employs zero gravity positioning, and you can choose your recline. All with the touch of a button.
This has everything the PC-610 has, but you use your weight to move the chair instead of a button. You know, like a traditional recliner. So, if you're looking to save a few dollars, and you don't mind simply using your body weight to incline the chair into a position that will instantly transport you to Shangri-La, happy birthday.
If you lean towards minimalism and like a slightly smaller recliner with all the benefits, check this out. You get the same choices that you get with the 610 and 420 in terms of frame, fabric, and colors, and you can adjust both the angle of recline and the height of your legs. Zero gravity positioning is a given.
This recliner is designed for those who prefer some bulk to their furniture. It doesn't sport the modern aesthetic as much as convey strength and stability. It comes in top grain leather, and you can choose from three colors. This is a recliner for someone who is all business when it comes to back health.
Human Touch uses what they call ProZero mode for this chair, which actually goes beyond zero gravity for optimal stress relief and spinal health. It also reclines into more positions than other recliner on the market.
PC Tranquility ZeroGravity
Pure Zen. Tranquility is the perfect nomenclature here. Human Touch designed this chair to transport your body and mind into a state of health and bliss.
The recline sets your body completely neutral and takes all of the weight off your joints and bones. Jade stones, built into the chair, heat up and soothe muscles and relive tension. Finally, waves of massage envelop the entirety of your body. Who are we kidding? This chair is beyond tranquil.
This series is designed for the serious enthusiast or anyone seeking any level of relief from back, neck, hip, leg, or body stress or pain. And if you simply need the highest order of relaxation and muscle tension relief out there, look no further.
If you've ever been, you can stop reading. Bali is all about massage, and no one on the island understand why anyone would stress about anything.
It's a heavenly place. This chair lives up to the name and the outlook. It provides a very rigorous, so it's not for the faint of heart.
Features include a rotating calf and foot massager built into the ottoman part of the recliner, which you control; a remote control that lights up (LED), so no turning on an overhead to disrupt your peaceful time; multiple shoulder settings, and actual arm containers, rather than rests. Your arms are hugged in massage.
There are nine height settings, the chair detects the length of your spine and back and adjusts accordingly. The cloud touch technology is placed at your arms, hips, seat, and shoulders, so you get the latest massage technology to every part of your body simultaneously.
If you're an athlete or your job is particularly hard and demanding on your body, check out the Novo XT. It's built for you and your specific physical and emotional needs, before and after your muscles get a serious workout.
This chair looks a little futuristic because it is.
You can position the foot and calf massagers to suit your needs, and the foot rollers deliver expert-masseuse-level reflexology. The leg rest is automatic, adjusting to meet your exact height.
The built in Bluetooth speakers let you choose what type of music relaxes you, and the track (which they label unibody) covers more than sixty percent of your body, so this chair has you literally covered like no other.
You get a heated lumbar for added stress and muscle tension relief in your lower back, where we need it most, and the chair is designed to stretch and bend your back and legs to relieve back pain and speed recovery. You can choose from thirty-four programs, and as always with Human Touch, you'll be supported in zero gravity positioning.

Human Touch Ijoy Active 2.0
If you don't have a lot of extra space or you just want a chair that fits where any other chair in your house would, the Active 2.0 is a solid bet. This is a classic chair, with three programs to choose from, and the circular massage you're used to receiving in the spa.

You have your own control set, so you decide what type you want, and bonus, this has a cup holder built right in. It comes with three programs, and an outlet is built in in case you need to charge your phone while you relax. You control the intensity by removing (or not removing) the softening massage pad. Read our iJoy 2580 review here.
Another entry level chair, if you like things simple, have a tight budget, or just want a little more out of your recliner, you absolutely can't go wrong with the 2310.
It's small in stature and ergonomically optimized. Another chair in the "relaxation" level class, it's got a controller stashed out of sight in the arm, a customizable intensity option with a removable pad, and three programs to choose from, featuring four different techniques. You can recline as little or as much as you want.
Human Touch built a line of foot and calf massagers around the basic tenet that we all so often forget: our legs and fee carry us around all day. They work hard and get very little love. We should treat them well. Buy good shoes, and get a massag. Look no further than the CirQlation series.
This foot and calf massager uses robotic technology to deliver it to your feet and calves that increases blood flow and circulation. It is delivered in a figure-eight pattern, targeting the power and healing that comes from foot reflexology massage.
It adds kneading to the figure-eight pattern, which provides maximum relief to sore foot muscles. If you're on your feet all day, or have a high impact job, this massager delivers relief to your feet and calves in waves of de-stressing massage.

This foot and calf massager takes thing up a notch. It's rated as intense level scale, and to the features that come standard with the 4, it adds heat. Your calves will receive a circulating-inducing figure-eight massage, and your feet a vibrating reflexology-based massage.

Human Touch WholeBody Series
These chairs will refresh your body, invigorate your soul, and leave you pleasantly worry-free about your bank balance. At first blush, you might think they're like any ordinary recliner, but look again.
They might look the part, but grab hold of the remote control, and your best recliner turns into instant massage therapy. And all the corresponding benefits are yours. Who has to know, really?

There's a high-tech neck pillow that looks great and provides support for your head and neck, you can adjust the back and legs separately, and there's a built-in calf and foot massager in the ottoman.
This is medical-grade chair. The system has four rollers, and it targets your whole body, low back to neck. The calf and foot massager is adjustable width-wise, there are three preset programs, and you get the best of both massages: kneading as well as percussion, or tapping. If you need extra attention on your neck, you can remove the head pillow for more intensity.

It comes with the fabulous calf and foot massager built into the ottoman, and of course, you can recline to absolute zero gravity.

You can choose between five styles, and integrate your legs and feet with the ottoman massager. It integrates a full body stretch for improved wellness and a boost to your immune and circulatory systems.
The 5.1 delivers a superb relaxation massage. Also on the moderate level, the flexglide system ensures a smooth, soothing experience every time. There are three auto preset programs, and a retractable ottoman for leg massage. This chair swivels, so you can recline and rotate as you wish, and the back and legs move independently, so you can adjust each to your exact specifications.
This is an adaptable chair that will fit into any space. The ottoman is the width of the whole chair, so you get a full lower body massage. The flexguide technology in 3D targets your special-needs areas and delivers a soothing experience for optimal healing and wellness.
