Osaki OS-4000 Massage Chair

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.

Massage Roller
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. To get an idea of what massage techniques it uses, there are 6 in total. This includes Swedish, Shiatsu, Rolling, Kneading, Clapping, and a Combination of the styles. 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.

Airbag Massage
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.

Massage Programs
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.

Special Functions
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.

Where To Buy
The Osaki Os-4000 Massage Chair is available for purchase both in-store and online. The Os-4000 comes in 4 different colors, black, dark brown, charcoal, and cream. For people having a hard time finding an Os-4000 in their area they can check out the Cozzia EC-363 at Relax the Back. These chairs are almost identical with the major difference being the look of the chair. For people looking for more of a deep tissue massage chair they can check out the Infinity It-8500, or the Osaki Os-3D Pro Dreamer, although these chairs are more expensive. For a more comparably priced chair with different features shoppers should look at the Infinity It-8100 which retails for around the same price.

Johnson J6800 Massage Chair Review

Johnson J6800 Massage Chair Review

Johnson Health Tech the internationally known health products brand released their very own line of massage chairs in 2013. These chairs are the Johnson J6800, J5800, and J5600. They are all built around 3D massage roller technology and each offer a different set of features. With our Johnson J6800 Massage Chair Review, we will take a closer look at the features.

Massage Roller
The Johnson J6800 Massage Chair has what’s called a 3D massage roller. It is able to travel up and down, left and right, but also adjusts to push deeper into the muscle tissue of the back. Being able to travel up and down, left and right, adding an extra axis moving in and out allows for a deeper level of massage. It’s also great for letting people control the different massage intensity they want at different times; moving from strong to soft. Fujiiryoki and Panasonic are the pioneers of 3D massage rollers, and the J6800 has one of the best 3D mechanisms on a massage chair traveling out 3.5 inches. You can adjust this easily through the remote and control the styles and rhythms of the massage.

Airbag Massage
The Johnson J6800 Massage Chair has a 31 multilayered airbag massage system. Having multilayered airbags helps the massage feel more lifelike during different programs. They feel more natural being able to pulse and squeeze at different levels instead of just squeezing in one area. The airbags are able to compress and apply shiatsu style massage to the outer shoulders, arms, hips, thighs, calves, and feet. There are also 3 settings for the airbags from a gentle squeeze to a deep compression.

Massage Programs
The Johnson J6800 also has plenty to choose from with Automatic Programs. There are 11 programs in total and allow for a wide range of massage experiences. They are based around traditional massage methods for use in stretching, to awakening the body, to increasing the lymphatic flow, to general healing and relaxation. To give a person an added level of control they include a repeat button so you can experience a certain part of the massage again. This helps for parts of the program that you enjoy more or bring greater relief to a certain area. For those who want to create their own programs the J6800 has 3 different user profiles that can be programmed into the memory of the chair. There are also plenty of options with manual programs that focus on different regions of the body. Once initiated a person can control the style, speed, and how intense they want the massage to be.

Special Functions
The Johnson J6800 massage chair is like many other premium chairs, it has a lot of extra functions. To make this chair good for not just massaging, but also for sitting,  they’ve incorporated a reversible ottoman. This is very similar to the Panasonic EP-MA70, which can go from massage chair to recliner very quickly. There is also a heating element for the feet and hands. During a massage you can put your hands into a piece of fabric that goes over the torso and is connected to the backrest. It can be used to heat the hands or chest. To add to the immersive effect of massage there is also a very easy to use MP3 player. Located in the armrest you can plug your MP3 into a universal cord and play music directly through the speakers located near the headrest. There are also fingertip controls located at the edge of the armrest that control the recline, and roller intensity.

Where to Buy
The Johnson J6800 massage chair is only available to purchase in store. It originally retailed for 4999.99 when it originally debuted with online massage chair stores. The Johnson J6800 also comes with a 3 year in-home service, parts, and labor warranty. This is one of the more comprehensible warranties available. If you want to buy online you can always check top online massage chair stores to view other similar models. These would include models like the Osaki OS-3d Pro Dreamer, Fujiiryoki EC-3700, and Panasonic EP-ma70. Some of these chairs may have higher quality upholstery and warranties, but they will have similar 3D massage roller functionality.
