With the recent reduction in retail price the Panasonic EP-MA70 Real Pro Ultra Massage Chair is more of a bargain than ever before. The Real Pro Ultra collection has a few features that are exclusive to Panasonic massage chairs that you simply will not find anywhere else. Including the heated massage rollers, unique grasping massage style, and rotatable ottoman! Designed in Japan, this massage chair combines truly innovative technology with modern design and comfort to bring you a massage chair that will bring the luxury of a spa to the privacy of your own home. Let’s get into the features of the EP-MA70 and see if this is the massage chair for you.
Heated Massage Heads
The massage rollers of the EP-MA70 massage chair have been outfitted with ceramic heaters to ensure that every part of your massage is improved by the “Hot Stone” massage effect that this feature delivers. Most massage chairs feature a couple of heating pads in the lower back to help loosen up muscles, with this massage chair you will enjoy the benefits of heat therapy across your entire back.
3D massage roller technology is the basis for many of the massage styles that Panasonic has developed including, grasping, and many of the neck stretching programs included in this massage chair and the EP-MA73. 3D massage technology gives the massage roller heads the ability to protrude from the massage track up to 8cm. With this protrusion the massage heads can provide a much stronger deep tissue massage that maximizes the benefit you receive from your massage chair.
Unique Grasping Massage Technique
The Grasping massage technique was introduced with the Panasonic EP-MA70 as a way to more accurately mimic a shoulder massage that you would receive from a real live masseuse. Thanks to 3D massage technology the EP-MA70 can access parts of your neck and upper shoulders that were unable to be accessed previously making this new massage experience possible.
Many modern massage chairs that feature intense reclined positions like zero gravity, or inversion suffer from a common design flaw. The arm rests don’t move when you recline, which means the arm massagers will be massaging your hands instead of forearms which is not the intention. The Panasonic EP-MA70 doesn’t have this problem, when you recline in this massage chair the arm rests move with you to ensure that your arms massage stays consistent no matter what position you are in.
31” Massage Roller Track & Extendable Leg Rest
The EP-MA70 features a longer massage roller track, and an extendable leg rest, which when combined allows this massage chair to accommodate users from 4’8” to 6’2” in height with no problem, the extra length allows the massage to cater to a much wider selection of users as well as access parts of the body that most massage chairs will never be able to.
Rotatable Leg Ottoman
There is a growing number of people that are finding that they love the back massage that most massage chairs provide, but can’t stand the foot massage. If you are among this group, have no fear, the ottoman of the EP-MA70 massage chair can be rotated to hide the footrests. This allows you to receive your back massage and skip the foot massage. Hiding the footrest also changes the look of the massage chair to that of a stylish recliner. So if you don’t like the idea of having a bulky massage chair taking up room in your living room, you can hide some of the features to have it blend in a little more cleanly.
Airbag Massage System
The air compression massage system is what elevates your massage to a full body experience. Strategically placed throughout the massage chair are 33 high density airbags that work with each other and with the back massage roller to provide additional relief throughout your entire body. Airbags in the hip and shoulder squeeze and push you back on the back rest allowing the massage roller to access some of the deeper tissue a little more easily; this improves your back massage.
Luxury Hand and Arm Massage
The armrests of the chair rise up to provide a unique hand and arm massage via high quality airbags designed to target specific muscles in the hands and arms. These arm rests also move with you as your recline, ensuring your arm massage is more consistent than that of any other massage chair.
Vocal Guiding System & Intuitive Remote
TThe EP-MA70 massage chair comes with 6 automatic programs that can be combined to create the ultimate personalized massage experience, including: Invigorating Massage, Intense Massage, Shiatsu Massage, Hip Massage, Neck and Shoulder Massage and Lower Back Massage. Manual Modes include: Ultra Massage, Shiatsu Massage, Regular Massage, Swedish Massage, Roller Massage and Tapping massage. This is a lot of choices to sift through if you are not familiar with the various massage styles and how massage programs work, that is why the EP-MA70 is equipped with the Vocal Guiding System, after a short tutorial of how to use the massage chair and what each of the functions do, you will have no doubt as to which massage routine you would like to try next. This feature also lets you save your favorite massage routine and personalization and recall them later so you can have YOUR perfect massage ready at the push of a button.
