There are many different manufacturers of massage chairs to choose from but the one that has stood the test of time is Panasonic. They have been making massage chairs for over 35 years. One of their newest recliners is the EP-MA20 massage chair. This massage chair review will point out some of the salient features of this advanced recliner.

The EP MA20 has been designed with a new intensity control sensor. This is said to give a more evenly balanced massage for any body type. A newly designed smart motor is powered by a microprocessor that is six times faster than the previous one available from Panasonic.

This new balanced massage has been achieved by developing a new roller that applies equal pressure to all contact points. With the new advanced microprocessor, information about your body is relayed to the massaging mechanism. It adjusts much more quickly than previous designs.

The new intensity control sensor allows you to use the remote control to increase or decrease the intensity of the massage. This allows you to get a little deeper penetration or less penetration depending on your desires. The intensity control Sensor is located on the remote control and can be adjusted as needed.

This recliner also comes with an air massage system. The air system uses 14 airbags which are located in the leg rest. These airbags are specially designed to better fit the calves and feet for a soothing compression style massage.

Another important feature of this recliner is the foot reflexology massage. This recliner has removable reflexology plates located underneath the feet. These specially designed plates stimulate the trigger points of the feet for a relieving reflexology massage.

Panasonic has also incorporated a stretching system into the recliner. This helps to alleviate stiffness in your lower back, hips and thighs. The air system in the leg ottoman squeezes the lower legs while simultaneously lowering the leg rest to stretch the lower body.

This is also a powered recliner. You can adjust the chair back automatically by utilizing the remote control. Motors are used to recline the chair back and raise the leg rest to find a comfortable position.

The remote control comes with three preset programs. These preset programs are automatic programs which have been established in the recliner. This gives you the ability to have a full body massage at the touch of a button.

The three preset massage programs are Swedish, deep and shiatsu. Each of these distinct programs gives you a full body, 15 minute massage. This is a great way to relax and let the recliner do its thing.

You can also focus on specific parts of the body. There are five different massage courses to select from. Choose from neck, shoulder, middle back, lower back or full back. The massage will be limited just to the area selected with the manual massage course.

The design of this recliner is quite contemporary. The recliner has silver accents on the armrest and also on its base. The armrests are long sloping ones which are very long. The chair back is very thick to accommodate the newly improved roller motor system.
