LONG BEACH, Calif.–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative lifestyle and massage products introduced its new line of WholeBodyTM massage chairs with the presentation of the HT-5040 at Las Vegas Market 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. In addition, the company released the two most recent members of the popular iJoy® line, the iJoy-2310 and iJoy-2580.

The HT-5040 is the first WholeBodyTM massage chair, designed to give a therapeutic, full body massage that melts away sore and achy muscles at the push of a button. As a part of the Signature Series, the HT-5040 incorporates Human Touch’s Robotic Massage®, plus a suite of additional features designed to deliver a therapeutic massage. Incorporating patented and proprietary mechanics to drive its robotic rollers, the chair delivers a remarkably life-like “figure eight” massage that emulates the expert hands and techniques of highly trained massage therapists. Complete with a foot and calf massager that refreshes the legs, three pre-programmed massages and a full-body stretch program, the HT-5040 is an optimal chair for targeted full-body relief.

“We are proud to introduce the WholeBodyTM massage chair, a chair that epitomizes Human Touch’s commitment to providing massage chairs and products that benefit the lives of athletes, back pain sufferers and all consumers in between,” says Andrew Corkill, Director of Marketing, Human Touch. “In introducing the concept of the WholeBody massage, we’ve equipped the chair with three of our top massage programs, a wealth of proprietary technology, and our patented deep-well foot and calf massager. The HT-5040 is a stylish chair that meets the needs of consumers who are looking for total relief that fits seamlessly into their lifestyles and budget.”

Human Touch® also introduced two new iJoy® Casual massage chairs, the iJoy-2310 and iJoy-2580, which incorporate Human Touch’s patented Robotic Massage®, as well as other advanced features found in significantly more expensive massage chairs. The contemporary iJoy design with contrasting materials suits today’s modern consumer.

In addition, Human Touch® hosted a media-grabbing Power Ladies event with some of the most powerful buyers in the furniture industry such as Hanks Fine Furniture, RC Willey, Sadlers Home Furnishings, Sheely’s Furniture and more. The ladies came together for an evening of wine and hors d’oeuvres and to discuss trends and share industry success stories from a woman’s perspective. To show their appreciation for the women buyers who make such an impact in the furniture industry, Human Touch raffled a HT-5005 massage chair to the buyers.
