The Osaki Os-4000 massage chair has been a very popular massage chair over the years. It has a lot of great features at a reasonable price. It’s also one of the older models that many shoppers have been able to try, talk about, and review. In this review we’re going to go over the basics of the chair like the massage roller, airbag massage, massage programs, and some of the cooler features like the special functions. The Osaki OS-4000 massage chair in many ways is one of the pioneers of massage chairs being one of the first massage chairs to offer Zero Gravity recline. The Os-4000 has a nice contemporary design with soft lines and also is comfortable to sit in. It looks just as nice in person and is very easy to use.
The Massage Roller on the Os-4000 is a Quad-Style roller built on an S-Track. That means there are four massage heads built on a track this is curved like the human spine. This helps the chair contour to the shape of the body and feel more natural during a massage. The massage roller can travel 30 inches on it’s massage track, capable of massaging someone around 5 foot, to 6 foot 3 inches. All of the massage functions are also easily controlled by the remote.

There are also 3 different roller strengths to choose from. The Os-4000 will work well for many different types of users, but if someone is looking for a very deep tissue massage chair they should check out other models. More on that below.
The Os-4000 Massage Chair is the only chair within it’s price range that has a 46 airbag massage system. The airbags are placed generously throughout the chair. They help offer more massage surface area, giving compression massage to the shoulders, neck, buttocks, arms, back, hips, calves, and feet. The airbags also have three different settings for strengths. This gives the option for people who want a gentle awakening massage or a more deep squeeze for muscle recovery. The airbags are also very comfortable with the arm, shoulder, and neck pillow being upholstered in soft fabric, and the seat, back, and ottoman airbags being covered in a synthetic leather. The airbags provide a very soothing and immersive massage experience.
The Osaki Os-4000 has 6 automatic programs. For a person who wants the ease of pressing a button to get a complete massage, the automatic programs allow for just this. The 6 different programs to choose from are Healthcare, Relax, Smart, Circulation, Demo, and Therapy. There are also 3 Partial programs that focus on different parts of the body. These include Full Body, Partial, and Spot or Fixed massage. This will give any regular user plenty of options as each of the programs incorporates different relaxation techniques and massage styles. Many of the programs also include the Zero Gravity Recline which helps enhance the full massage experience and put the user into a deeper state of relaxation.
The Osaki Os-4000 Massage Chair also has many special functions that help add to the overall therapeutic experience. The most notable is the Zero Gravity recline function. Zero Gravity recline became very popular when NASA pioneered the technology to help astronauts deal with the intense gravitational forces when they traveled into space. The degree of recline puts the knees in a specific angle above the heart and it was soon realized that this also puts the body into a natural state of relaxation. The Osaki Os-4000 has two different Zero Gravity reclines, one in the traditional angle and one that is slightly farther back. The Zero Gravity also helps the massage rollers work more efficiently across the back. There is also the Body Scan that has become commonplace in many chairs, this helps read the body and prepare it for the ideal massage. It scans the width, finds different accupoints, and helps tailor each experience to the individual user. The Heat located in the Lumber is an added benefit that helps warm the body up and prepare it for a more thorough massage. There is also vibration in the seat to help invigorate the lower extremities. The extendable footrest also makes it easy for shorter or taller people to feel accommodated in the chair.
