What exactly is 3D Massage Roller Technology in Massage Chairs?
Looking for a massage chair that can give a deep massage? Then you definitely want to
find a massage chair that has 3D massage roller technology.
So what exactly are 3D Massage Rollers?
Most massage chairs that are made today are made up of 2D massage roller
technology. In a 2D system, the roller can travel up and down the massage track, and
adjust for width. 3D massage rollers on the other hand, can do everything the 2D roller
can do, but it also can travel in and out (6-8cm) in an effort to bring your massage to
places that are typically neglected by your average massage chair, such as the upper
neck and upper shoulder area giving it an extra dimension. This means that the rollers
can push into the users' body applying a deeper massage to your entire back, or it can
retract allowing for a less intense massage - this is what makes 3D massage roller
technology so great!
3D massage technology can improve your massage experience in a
number of ways:
. This allows you to have a deeper much more intense massage, which maximizes
the benefit of the massage and the relaxation you will receive from it.
. 3D technology is adjustable! Which means you can control the amount of
protrusion from the massage heads, which gives you even more control over the
massage you receive from your massage chair.
. As mentioned previously the 3D massage technology also allows you receive a
massage in areas that previously would have gone without, you can now extend
your deep tissue massage to these areas increasing the relaxation and
rejuvenation benefits from your massage.

This technology mimics a zero-gravity recline chair, but with the added feature of a massage. It positions the body in a neutral position that counteracts gravity's adverse effects by easing the body into a virtually weightless position, elevating the legs above the heart. By doing so, the chair's position relieves weight from the spine, empowering sore, tired muscles to relax and restore their natural balance and well-being.
What's a zero-gravity massage chair?
In recent years there's been an increase in the popularity of the massage chairs with the zero gravity features. Zero gravity is a technology that was created by NASA to help astronauts cope with the stress of gravity and because of its numerous advantages is now being integrated in many massage chairs. This technique places your body in a more comfortable position with the elevation of the feet above the heart level. This provides equal distribution the weight across the entire body and taking off the pressure off the spine. The reduction of stress on your body is so effective you'll feel virtually weightless as a result.
Massaging in this position allows for a deeper, more intense massage. As a bonus, this position takes stress away from the body, can increase circulation, and can help prevent varicose veins.
When a spaceship leaves the world's atmosphere, the astronauts inside are exposed to immense pressures. Lying in a reclined position distributes this pressure evenly and safely across their bodies.
Benefits of Zero Gravity Chair
. Decompression of the spine.
. Increased relaxation of the neck and back.
. Improved blood circulation.
. Elimination of stress after invigorating relaxation.
. Better sleep.
. Enhanced respiration.
. One benefit of this position is that it promotes circulation in the legs and reduces
swelling. Elevating the legs over the level of the heart during rest can help prevent
conditions like varicose veins
What's The Zero-gravity True Position?
While several massage chair manufacturers offer models that come with the zero-gravity position feature, not all zero-gravity chairs are true Zero Gravity Massage Chairs. These chairs will distribute your weight and support you, but they won't rub away your tension and stress.
True Zero Gravity position is when:
. The seat tilts at 30 (Degree) angle
. The seat back articulates towards the seat at 120(Degree) angle ( i.e it tilts back 30(Degree) )
. The leg rest is above the heart raise at 28(Degree) angle
In Zero Gravity the seat tilts at 30(Degree) whereas in non-Zero Gravity although the back can recline but the seats remains horizontal and doesn't tilts.
When Seat back tilts even higher (more then 120(Degree) ) and leg rest becomes horizontal it's not true Zero Gravity as all the weight is down on your upper back. In Zero Gravity the weight distribution is much more balanced.
Body Curve Rail or L Shape Rail
Moreover, the chair is designed with an S-track or L shape movable massage robot that focuses on the neck and shoulders while providing a lumbar massage according to your curves.
L shape design fits your body back shape perfectly for deep massage from neck to buttock.

Most massage chair come with foot/calf/ankle massagers, ensuring a superior kneading massage that improves blood circulation to relive sore, tired muscles. If the massager is not attached to the chair itself, most models can be paired with an ottoman foot and calf massager.
Available on some models, the calf massage wells will gently hold your legs as the chair reclines to arch your back and engage in a gentle body stretching program with an active massage of your lower back.
The auto-massage program for the lower back provides a set amount of time for an invigorating massage, relieving your lower back tension and leaving you feeling energized.
Easily personalize your massage experience to include a full-back or targeted massage, with or without heat (if applicable). Some controllers can be used while docked, or removed for convenient hand-held operation.
This depends on your preference. Most chairs are outfitted with synthetic leather, but can be customized with various types of leather.
Number of Motors
The most important aspect to a massage chair is the number of motors it has. If the unit has independently working motors, you will receive a stronger massage because of the power distribution among each motor. Also, the more motors, the stronger the massage.
Allow the user to adjust the angles of the headrest, leg rest, and/or chair recline.
