Imagine the luxury and comfort of bringing the relaxation of a hot stone massage into your everyday life, whether it’s when you first wake up, or after a long day on your feet. This is exactly what the Panasonic EP-MA73 Real Pro Ultra massage chair is designed to do for you. Panasonic took all of the concerns, complaints, and short-comings of the EP-MA70 massage chair and improved, redesigned and reimagined what the chair can provide to you. With no other chair like it out there the EP-MA73 will provide you with the best massage experience you have had in your life. Take a look at the new and improved features to see for yourself.
Designed to simulate the warming sensation of a human hand, the massage rollers have built in ceramic heaters to provide heat therapy to anywhere the roller can reach. Improved over the EP-MA70’s version of this feature, now you are able to melt away stress and loosen up muscles across the entirety of your back, as well as lumbar, feet and hips.
Improved over the scanning technology of the EP-MA70, when you sit down, this massage chair provides a much more comprehensive map of your body and exactly where you are in the chair to the massage rollers so you and every user, get a much more accurate and personalized massage experience. As with most massage chairs, upon sitting down and starting your favorite program, the massage chair scans your back to determine your height, width, and precise curvature of your spine and shoulders. This allows you to get the most uniform massage available from your hips all the way high up on the middle of the neck.
The massage rollers of the EP-MA73 are very dynamic. Not only do they provide heat and newly improved massage motions (that are mentioned below) They are also outfitted with 3D technology which allows the heated massage head to protrude from the massage track about 4” and reach places on your body that previously would have had to go without, like high up on your neck, and shoulders, and provide them with a much deeper tissue massage that ultimately leaves you with a more relaxing, and more complete massage experience.
This 3D massage roller technology is also the basis for Panasonic’s exclusive grasping massage technique. With this technology the massage rollers are actually able to mimic the way the human hand would grasp your shoulder muscles, especially at the base of the neck which provides a much more effective and realistic massage in this area.
The Panasonic EP-MA73 has improved the typical air bag massage system to more accurately recreate how a real masseuse would massage places like the soles of your feet, and hands and arms. Using a more intricate set of airbags, and inflating them alternately or in a specific order, the air bags provide an innovative kneading massage to your hands, forearms, and feet. Outfitted with 33 airbags that work in tandem with the back roller to provide a much more vigorous massage to areas like your lower back, and feet, the air compression massage you receive from this massage chair is unlike any other on the market due to its unique ultra-kneading massage style and much more targeted airbags in the hands, forearm, and feet.
Exclusive to Panasonic massage chairs this massage style is designed to mimic the skilled circular thumb movements of a professional masseuse aimed at loosening up very tight muscles and penetrating to the deep tissue for lasting relief and improved relaxation. This massage method is essentially an ultra-fine kneading massage to those muscles causing you problems.
Ultra-kneading is a massage style that is exclusive to the EP-MA73. Administered by the airbags as opposed to the massage roller, this massage style relies on targeted airbags in the hands and arm rests that are inflated in a specific or alternating order to simulate the motions a masseuse uses to massage your hands, arms and legs.
Manual adjustments allow you full control over your massage on everything from the intensity, to speed and width. With the manual control on the easy to use remote, this massage chair allows you to completely customize your massage down to the utmost detail.
This new massage program combines four different stretch combinations to provide a whole body stretch experience that you have never experienced in a massage chair. By intuitive combination of mechanical movement and airbag inflation the EP-MA73 massage chair provides you an excellent stretch massage in these areas:
One complaint that comes with heated massage across your whole upper body, is that your lower body starts to feel cold, which can hinder the effectiveness of your lower body and foot massage. To create a more complete experience, heating pads were added to the soles of the foot rest in the leg ottoman to balance out your body temperature, and increase the effectiveness of the kneading massage roller in the footrest.
The kneading massage style has been improved in this chair and expanded to other areas of the body that only receive a compression air massage thanks to the new Ultra-kneading technology. Relax and melt away stress with a heated kneading massage across a larger section of your body than ever before.
Leaving nothing out, offered to you at the push of a button in manual mode, and as part of some of the automatic programs, all of your favorite massage styles are available to you including:
As well as 6 automatic programs so you can start your massage with only a couple button pushes. These programs include:
Your massage chair doesn’t always have to look like a massage chair. This massage chair offers the unique ability to flip the ottoman around to hide the leg massagers so your massage chair looks just like a stylish recliner. Or simply want to enjoy a nice back massage without taking your shoes off to fit them in the foot rest? This option allows you to accomplish that! The ottoman also extends an extra 18 cm to allow taller users to sit a little more comfortably while receving their massage
This feature allows the chair to feel a bit more ergonomic and maintains your comfortable position on the backrest and ensures that you stay in relatively the same location that the chair scanned you in when you first sat down. With this feature you won’t have the massage roller trying to massage way above your shoulder when you recline in the massage chair after the back scan.
Improved over the EP-MA70, the EP-MA73’s neck massage is more narrow and focused on the muscles near your spine instead of further out, which is less effective. The 3D rollers now focus more toward the center of your neck maximizing the relief in the area.
The armrest design was improved to improve your arm massage experience in the reclined position. With the new Ultra-kneading technology the arms needed to be repositioned to allow you to take full advantage of the ultra-kneading arm massage when in the reclined position. As a side benefit this improvement also gives the chair a more modern and sleek look.
