Human Touch introduces Omni-Motion Classic, Omni-Motion Silhouette, and Classic Manual Plus Perfect Chair Models to Help You Find the Perfect Fit

Long Beach, CA– June XX, 2016 Human Touch, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair Recliners, and other wellness solutions, has introduced three new models to their zero-gravity Perfect Chair Recliner series. The new Omni-Motion Classic (PC-610), Omni-Motion Silhouette (PC-600), and Classic Manual Plus (PC-420) each include several new upholstery options and performance features to provide an even more perfect seating and wellness experience.

Inspired by NASA, the Perfect Chair places the body into a doctor-recommended, neutral-gravity position—with the feet above the heart—to alleviate pain and stress from the neck and vertebrae, which is caused by earth’s gravitational pull on the body. This provides improved relaxation, reduced stress and better sleep quality, among other important benefits.

According to David Marcarian, President of Precision Biometrics and NASA-trained Ergonomics Expert, “As the Perfect Chair reclines, the muscles instantaneously start relaxing. When the chair reaches neutral posture there is a huge reduction in the state of muscle irritation, establishing objectively that the Perfect Chair promotes spinal health.”

Perfect Chair Omni-Motion Classic (PC-610)

Every Perfect Chair blends contemporary architecture with old-world craftsmanship, giving it a bold yet classic look. Each base is crafted from hand-carved and hand-finished solid wood, made from the Hevea Brasiliensis (rubber tree), which yields one of the strongest woods on earth. The premium leather upholstery is sourced from a select 5% of the world’s most high-quality, uncorrected cowhide. The high-tensile strength steel glide rails are also sandblasted, cleaned, and powder-coated with a protective surface for long-term durability and a smooth, quiet glide in order to offer the highest possible level of quality.

 

Upgraded Design with Manual Recline

The Perfect Chair Classic Manual Plus (PC-420) offers precision-engineered design with a manual recline option that’s as easy as leaning back in the chair. Additional key upgrades offered in this new Perfect Chair model include:

  • Extended Armrests: The wide and long armrests give constant support even as the chair reclines into zero-gravity.
  • Adjustable Lumbar Support: The adjustable lumbar system is equipped with a release valve, allowing for individual seating comfort.
  • Fully Customizable: Choose from premium, top-grain, and SōfHyde leathers, and a variety of solid wood-based finishes. Additional upgrades of Memory Foam PLUS and Jade Heat offer enhanced comfort and health benefits, and the many accessory options allow the chair to customize to the user’s preference.

 

PC-610 in Zero-Gravity Position

Revolutionary Omni-Motion Versatility

The new Perfect Chair Omni-Motion Classic (PC-610) offers independent leg and back adjustability with an electric recline, now giving you the power to easily and independently position your recline angle and leg elevation. The Omni-Motion Silhouette (PC-600) also offers this innovative feature, but in a slim, tapered design that is the perfect choice for those smaller in stature.

The new Omni-Motion PC-600 and PC-610 models include each of the design upgrades of the PC-420, along with these additional features:

  • Independent Leg and Back Adjustability: A revolution in zero-gravity seating, the Omni-Motion Classic and Omni-Motion Silhouette provide dual-motor power to independently position the recline angle and leg elevation.
  • 5-way Controller: The intuitive 5-way omni-control Perfect Chair offers infinite comfort positions with a simple press and hold for zero-gravity.

Human Touch was recently able to donate a massage chair to Peyton White, who lives in Texas. Peyton and his mother, Lynne, plan to conduct a study to determine the effects that a massage chair will have on Peyton’s Autism, including regular updates from Peyton where he will discuss the results from his perspective. We are excited to follow along with Peyton on his journey, and invite you to join us with his updates as well! Here is an excerpt from Peyton’s latest post:

A couple weeks ago, I got a new Human Touch massage chair. It helps me reduce anxiety, get rid of muscle soreness and have better sleep at night. When I sleep better, it helps me with my autism, as I don’t stress as much. When I do stress, I sit in the chair, and it helps me calm down. I use the massage chair about 2 or 3 times a day. My favorite parts of the massage chair are using foot and calf and rolling and kneading which really makes me relax to help me become confident. While I’m sitting and relaxing on the massage chair, I can study my notes when I’m worried about a quiz or test so that I’ll do better at it. Whenever I’m stressed or need a better sleep, I sit on the massage chair for 15-25 minutes. I just wanted to tell you how awesome and comfortable my chair is and how much it is already helping me.

Human Touch Massage Chairs and Perfect Chair® Recliners Recognized as a Valid Supplement to Back-Care Therapy

Long Beach, CA – May 23, 2016 – Human Touch, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair Recliners, and other wellness solutions, has received an exclusive endorsement by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) for its massage chairs as a valid supplement to back-care therapies. The WFC is a professional organization comprised of national associations of chiropractors in 88 countries, representing them and the chiropractic profession in the international community.

After thoroughly investigating Human Touch products, the WFC has concluded that Human Touch massage chairs and Zero-Gravity Perfect Chair Recliners can serve as an important tool for back pain sufferers by alleviating and preventing spinal stress, which is a leading cause of back pain and related disability. According to the WFC, over 80% of Americans will be disabled by back pain at some point during their lives, and persistent /chronic back pain is the single most disabling condition for working-age Americans.

“The WFC is pleased to endorse Human Touch products as valuable tools in the treatment and care of back pain and spinal disorders due to their superior technology, quality, and ability to prevent or alleviate spinal stress,” said the WFC’s Secretary-General, Richard Brown. “The WFC encourages individuals with back pain to consider combining chiropractic care with the high-quality of a Human Touch massage chair or Perfect Chair recliner as an option to achieve optimum wellness.”

Among the Human Touch products available, the Perfect Chair zero-gravity recliners and Ascent Series Navitas Sleep massage chairs are particularly ideal for assisting in back pain, spinal alignment, and posture.

  • The Perfect Chair: Inspired by NASA’s neutral body posture, the Perfect Chair places the body in a virtually weightless position to provide relaxation and minimum muscle tension. In this doctor-recommended position, the spine, hips, and knee joints are on or close to the balanced midpoint of the muscles. Its sleek and elegant design and zero-gravity engineering make it a great way to relieve the soreness, tension, and fatigue caused by the constant load-bearing. The Perfect Chair comes in a variety of different styles and colors.
  • Navitas Sleep Massage Chair: This top-of-the-line robotic massage chair defies the clutches of gravity and adjusts to the individual’s body to fit like a glove. It’s based on the patented Human Touch Technology®, which replicates the hands of a professional massage therapist and delivers 4D massage technology with 104 micro-sculpting and acupressure massage techniques for the upper and lower-body. Human Touch’s patented calf massage mechanism includes targeted shiatsu therapy and a unique air massage that rejuvenates your legs using 19 different massage techniques as well as under-foot reflexology.

    The Navitas chair also offers 36 wellness programs- more than any chair in the world- as well as cloud touch acupressure, and zero-gravity seating to deliver an experience that will rival even the most proficient masseuse.

“We’re proud to receive this recognition from the World Federation of Chiropractic,” said David Wood, Chief Executive Officer of Human Touch. “This endorsement iterates the effectiveness of Human Touch products in providing health and wellness benefits to the millions of Americans suffering from back pain. We strongly believe that regular massage therapy and proper posture alignment can supplement a balanced diet and active lifestyle, thereby maximizing overall health and wellness.”

In its ongoing commitment to enhancing the wellness of consumers everywhere, Human Touch also offers a Wellness Council. Through the Wellness Council, Human Touch has brought together influential individuals with a variety of wellness experiences and expertise to educate people about how to achieve a healthier and happier life by integrating massage, relaxation, sound posture, and balance into their daily routine.
