You can now find quite a range of different massage chairs on the market today. There are very expensive one for the luxury models. However, you can find some in the midrange that perform very well. One interesting recliner is the HT 135 robotic massage chair. This recliner is manufactured by the Human Touch massage chair Company. This is a massage chair review of the HT 135.
You find some advanced technology in the Human Touch massaging chair. The Human Touch company has proprietary technology for its massage techniques. The quad style rollers contained in the recliner are able to perform percussion style massage as well as kneading.
One of the fun things about a massage chair is that it comes with a remote control. Many of the advanced features are activated with the remote. Simply push the button or series of buttons to activate the massage and technique that you would like.
On most massage chairs, the remote control is hardwired into the chair. The chair also has a wired controller. The remote used on this recliner has buttons on two sides of the remote.
The materials used on massage chairs continue to evolve in a positive direction. Many manufacturers have found that leather is not durable enough for many applications. Many companies including Human Touch are turning to synthetic leather to help improve the life of the upholstery while lowering cost.
You’ll find that the massage chair only has the capability to massage your back and your lower legs. There are no features to massage your buttocks and thighs. A calf massager is used to massage both the calf area and the feet.
The recliner also comes with a power recline. Simply push the button to find the right angle of recline for the chair back. You can recline the chair back to 170 degrees.
The chair does not have any massage therapy for the buttocks and the upper legs. Instead, the HT 135 massage chair comes with a visco-elastic foam seat cushion. This body contouring cushion molds itself to your body to relieve pressure.
There is also special programming for its automatic massages. This combined with some of the proprietary technology give a very subtle and realistic feel to these massage. Just choose one of the 3 automatic programs to find the one best for you.
One area which was of concern for me was the calf massager. I am taller and found that the calf massager does not extend in the leg. Therefore, in my case, the calf massager did not line up very well with my calves for getting a massage.
Another interesting feature of the recliner is that it has a body stretching. This body stretching works as you recline the chair back. The calf massager will hold onto your legs as the chair gently reclines back.
The Human Touch Company seems to like pedestal base style massage chairs. Almost all of their massage chairs utilize this type of design. This model of recliner is no exception. The chair has solid oak wood accents on the armrest as well as on the swivel base.
The Human Touch HT 135 massage chair has both style and effective massage therapy. Like most midrange models, some sacrifices are made to keep the price down. The HT 135 massage chair does not have any middle body massage for the buttocks and thighs. The massage areas are limited it to the calves, feet and back areas. The HT 135 does come in a contemporary design with a swivel base which is attractive. This is my massage chair review.
