Panasonic EP-MA73 Massage Chair
Panasonic EP-MA73 Massage Chair
The Panasonic EP-MA73 Real Pro Ultra massage chair from the very start has been designed to be a successor to the EP-MA70 model. Panasonic took customer feedback as well as a few of their own design upgrades to create a massage chair that's the best possible combination of features and comfort. This massage chair provides the absolute best in technology and has addressed common complaints about typical massage chairs in an effort to provide the best massage experience possible from a home massage chair. Some of the upgrades made to the EP-MA73 include rotating armrests, heated foot rests, better neck, shoulder and pelvis stretch programs that provide a much deeper sense of relief. Take a look at the features below and see if the EP-MA73 fits your needs and then give us a call for the best deal available. Now available in Brown.
ACA (American Chiropractic Association) Endorsed
Panasonic massage chairs are the first massage chairs 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 numerous health benefits of regular massage and the effects of regular deep-tissue massage relief. As you already know massage can help relax muscles in the back creating an ideal state for chiropractic adjustment.
Improved Heated Massage Roller Heads
The Panasonic EP-MA73 Massage chair was voted the top massage chair of 2014! As an improved iteration of the EP-MA70 that came out a couple of years ago, the EP-MA73 improves a number of features that improve your overall massage experience. The most important of which is the improvement to the heated massage roller. Built into the quad-style massage roller are ceramic heaters that apply a ???hot stone??? style heat to your back massage. Since the version of this feature that was released with the EP-MA70, the technology has been revised and improved to complete the experience.
Advanced Body Scanning Technology
The Panasonic EP-MA73 massage chair uses advanced body scanning technology to create a map of your unique size and shape so it can cater the massage you receive to you instead of making guesses. When you start a massage program the first thing you feel is the massage heads gliding up and down your back so it can map exactly how tall you are and the unique curvature of your back.
This massage style can only be found on Panasonic massage chairs. Using a spiral circular motion that reaches deep down all the way to the bone, this massage style quickly and easily loosens up those tense muscles in the shoulders and back so that your massage can access the deep tissue more quickly. The massage roller heads are designed to mimic the feel of a thumb on your back, so it feels as if an actual masseuse is in the room with you.
Air Compression Massage System
The Panasonic EP-MA73 has a full body airbag compression massage that works with several different parts of the massage chair to help improve your overall massage experience. In total 33 airbags apply a compression massage to the shoulders, hips, thighs, buttocks, calves and feet, as well as a unique Ultra-kneading massage to the hands and forearms. The EP-MA73 takes the standard airbag massage system and breaks it down into smaller airbags that it inflates in sequence to re-create the motions of a real life masseuse. The airbags in the hips and shoulders work with the new heated 3D back massage roller to push you into the backrest so you get more out of your back massage as well.
Ultra-Kneading Massage for Arms, Hands and Feet
The compression in the arms would sometimes hurt certain people when using the massage chair, so instead of the standard compression massage in the arms, the EP-MA73 adds a nice kneading massage to your forearm and wrist area. Unlike any other massage chair in the real pro ultra-collection, or any other massage brand for that matter. The EP-MA73 also incorporates a kneading massage in the sole of the foot rest that combines with the heat therapy to bring true unprecedented relief to your feet and lower legs.
The arm rests have been redesigned and had the angles at which they sit adjusted so that the incorporation of kneading into the arm rest feels more natural and relaxing. The position is also much more ergonomic for the reclined position, so the ultra kneading in the arms, and position of the body map for the backrest massage stay accurate no matter what position you are relaxing in.
6 Massage Techniques
The EP-MA73 Real Pro Ultra features 6 massage techniques that offer different benefits for different parts of your back and body. These techniques are Ultra Kneading, Junetsu, Shiatsu, Rolling, Tapping, and Gentle Kneading
The EP-MA73 Massage chair has 6 massage programs available to you in addition to various manual adjustments and customizations. These programs use all of the massage styles listed above to deliver on Panasonic???s promise of one of the most realistic and complete massage experiences you are going to receive from a massage chair. These programs include Deep, Refresh, Shiatsu, Hip, Lower Back, and Neck/Shoulder.
Heated Foot Massage
One of the biggest complaints consumers had with the Panasonic EP-MA70 massage chair was cold feet when relaxing in the chair barefoot, so heating has been added to the soles of the foot massager in the ottoman and applies a nice heat therapy to your feet and lower legs.
Stretching programs have been implemented for the neck line and upper shoulder area. Now the airbags in the headrest grab your head and stretch the neckline area so your massage extends all the way to the top of your spine instead of stopping at the base of your neck.
Body Stretch Programs
- Shoulder Blade Stretch - The airbags and massage rollers work together to more easily access the shoulder blade muscles. The airbags keep your shoulders in place while the heated massage roller massages and stretches those often tense muscles between the spine and shoulder blade.
- Improved Leg Stretch - Airbags throughout the leg rest inflate to hold and squeeze your leg muscles. The leg rest will even move with certain airbags inflated in an effort to stretch hard to reach muscles that the massage rollers can't access. This program delivers a relaxing lower body massage while still working on your entire upper body.
- Improved Pelvic Stretch - This airbag massage routine is ideal for working on the lower back area. Air bags placed in the hip and buttock area inflate to stretch out your hips and lower back, as well as inflating to push your lower back onto the backrest when the massage rollers are in place to improve your lower back massage. This loosens up muscles and helps to relieve back pain.
Improved Neck Massage
The neck massage has been improved! By moving the rollers in a simple 5mm to focus on the center of your neck, the massage effects end up being more profound, and definitely more significant.
Improved Recline Positioning
The auto-positioning of the back and leg rest has evolved to emphasize comfort. Now the leg rest reclined angle matches that of the backrest so your body is in the optimal position at all times and feels not only more comfortable when you are reclined, but also more natural.
Massage Strength and Intensity Adjustments
The airbag compression massage, as well as the roller massage, gives you 5 levels of adjustment. Adjust the intensity of the airbag massage to your liking, as well as the level of 3D massage you receive on your back. Having this manual customization ensures that you are happy with feel of your massage with every use.
