The Best of the Best in the EP-MA73

The Panasonic EP-MA73 massage chair includes a number of innovative features. Here, we’ll take a closer look at the best and most improved features over older models so that you’ll have a better idea of what this massage chair can do for you. 

Let’s get started.

ACA (American Chiropractic Association) Endorsed

Panasonic massage chairs are the first in the industry to be approved by the largest professional association of chiropractic doctors in the world. This was actually the first endorsement given by the ACA in recognition of the various health benefits of consistent massage and the effects of regular deep-tissue massage relief on a person’s health. Massage can profoundly relax muscles in the back, arms, legs, and more, creating an ideal state for a chiropractic adjustment.

Improved Heated Massage Roller Heads

One of the first features improved since older models have come out is the ceramic heaters. Outfitted on the back massage rollers this technology provides a hot stone-like heat therapy across your entire back. This feature is a significant improvement over the lumbar heaters that most massage chairs offer as it covers the majority of your back, including areas typically neglected by the heating elements, including the upper shoulders and neck.

The EP-MA73 was voted the top massage chair of 2014, and since then has been a top-seller at MassageChairPlanet.Com. As an improved iteration of the EP-MA70, the EP-MA73 improves a number of features that make your overall massage experience that much better. The most important of which is the improvement to the heated massage rollers. Quad-style massage rollers have now been made with ceramic heaters built into their high-quality construction. These mimic a hot stone massage even better than previous versions thanks to the revised and improved design.

Improved Heated Foot Massagers

The heat therapy system doesn’t stop there either. Within the footrest are even more heaters that apply gentle heat therapy to your feet to help keep your entire body warm and comfortable, easing tension and pain in your hardworking feet. These heaters also help soothe stiffness that most massage chairs can’t tend to because they don’t offer heated foot rollers. Often, people have remarked that they wish their feet were warmer during their massage. This feature helps with that and keeps you cozy while you relax.

Improved Neck Massage

Another improvement over the previous Panasonic iterations is the neck massage feature. By moving the rollers in a simple 5mm circle to focus on the center of your neck, your overall neck massage ends up being much more effective and definitely more noticeable.

Improved Recline Positioning

The auto-positioning of the back and leg rest has grown to highlight comfort. Now, the leg rest reclined angle matches that of the backrest so that your body is in the optimal position at all times. This will not only feel more comfortable when you are reclined but also more natural. It’s the best way to enjoy your massage with your weight supported on the rollers for the deepest muscle penetration.
