Everything about this massage chair is designed to create a whole new level of massage luxury, including new features like the heating blanket, and the new massage techniques engineered to get to muscles that are often skipped over or neglected. The Regent comes in two colors, cream, and black and we offer it here with a $1600 discount just for adding it to your cart. Learn more about the features below and see if this is what you are looking for.
New 4D Real Massage Technology
4D massage technology is the next generation of 3D massage technology. The massage rollers have the ability to protrude from the massage track up to 9cm (3.5”). This brings the deep tissue massage you receive on your back up to a whole new level. Easily customize the level of protrusion from the remote to ensure your massage is always customized to your needs. This technology also expands the massage area to parts of the upper shoulder and neck that many other massage chairs don’t even know are there.
Blanket Heat Therapy System
In addition to an elaborate heating system throughout the backrest, the heating surface has been expanded by about 60% with the new Blanket system that brings heat therapy to the front of your body as well. The blanket also has pockets on the front to warm your hands while receiving your massage.
Heat therapy is the perfect complement to any massage. By applying heat to tense muscles across your back AND front, your whole body is able to relax a little more deeply, which in turn increases any benefit you receive from your massage.
Heated Foot Massager
In the Apex Regent Massage chair, the heat therapy system doesn’t stop in the lower back like it does it most other massage chairs that offer heat. In addition the back and front of your upper body, you also have heating elements in the footrest to keep your feet warm and to help melt away any tension held in your feet.
Real Body Scanning Technology
Body scanning technology is a vital feature for any high end massage chair. When you first start your massage program the massage rollers will scan and map your back to determine the unique curvature of your spine as well as the height of your shoulders so that your massage is personalized to you. The Regent massage chair features an upgraded version of body scanning that detects additional features of your back such as the shoulder blade, so it can specifically target muscles around the shoulder blade more effectively.
Unique Massage Techniques
Right out of the box there are some new massage techniques that you likely have not seen before in any other massage chair. These new features target the upper shoulder, and shoulder blade as well as the lower back/gluteus area to provide additional attention to these often tense areas that most massage chairs just gloss over.
Exclusive to the Apex regent massage chair, sideways kneading is a brand new technique designed to target muscles directly around the shoulder blades where a lot of tension is held. This is only possible thanks to the Real body scanning technology, since without it, this massage chair would have no idea where the shoulder blades were.
Upper Shoulder Pressure Massage
Thanks to the massage roller protrusion you can now receive a pressure massage to the upper shoulder area. Most tension in the shoulder area starts with the trapezius muscle, as this is where the majority of your shoulder tension originates.
Lower Back & Gluteus Massage
This massage technique focuses on your lower back. By inflating the airbags in the seat of the massage chair your body is pushed back into the back rest so the massage roller can reach a little deeper into the muscle tissue of your lower back.
Rhythmic Massage Feature
Included is a massage routine caled “Music” which allows you to connect an MP3 player filled with your favorite music and get massaged to the beat. The Regent massage chair syncs the motions of the back massage to your music in an effort to further immerse you in your massage experience.
Pulse Air Massage System
This is the next generation of the air compression massage system. Designed to promote blood circulation and stimulate muscles in your legs and arms by squeezing in a specific method.
31 Airbag Compression Massage System
Don’t be put off by the lower airbag count in the Apex Regent Massage chair. Instead of quantity the regent focuses on quality, as such 31 high quality airbags placed throughout the massage chair create an elaborate compression massage system that covers the same surface area of a much higher count airbag system, allows the chair to do the same work much more efficiently, which improves the overall durability of the massage chair.
Ergonomic Arm Massagers
The new ergonomic arm massagers are an important innovation that other massage chairs sorely need. In a typical massage chair when you recline back the arm massagers stay in the same place, which changes how your arms lay in them and no longer provides the ideal relief. The arms in the regent massage chair move with you so your arm massage stays consistent no matter what position you are in.
On Demand Key Pad & MP3 Player
With this feature the remote is always within easy reach, and you can change the important aspects of your massage with the push of a couple of buttons. This allows you to focus on your relaxation rather than straining yourself to reach the remote. Control the Music and volume from the right arm rest, and the recline and massage head position from the left.
Deep Spot Key Function
The Deep Spot button is a program designed to focus on a particular area of your back that you are having issues with that day. When the rollers get to the painful area, press the deep spot button and the regent will activate a deeper massage to help relieve the area.
11 Preprogrammed Massage Routines
The 11 massage programs are designed to provide you with a number of different ways to relax and provide relief to your entire body, with so many programs you can have a completely different massage experience with every use.

Adjustable Leg Extension
Extend the footrest an additional 6.25” by pressing your feet on the bottom of the heated footrest. With this extension the Regent massage chair can cater to users of up to 6’4” in height.
Fold Away Ottoman
If you are a person that doesn’t particularly care for the foot massage in most massage chairs, the Regent massage chair actually gives you a choice. Fold the footrest up and the massage chair takes on the look of a stylish recliner and allows you to sit comfortably without having to think about the foot massage.
