The Newest Headlines Surrounding Massage Chairs and Human Touch

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016


We’re pleased to share this post from Peyton White, who is conducting a research study on the effects that his Human Touch massage chair has on his Autism. This original post can be found on his blog here.

Being Autistic sometimes I have trouble sleeping, and that isn’t good. The Reason why sleeping is important is because it helps you be healthier and increase your brain function to positively think and learn. It also helps prevent heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. When having little sleep, people feel less positive and can have a rough day at school or work. Having 2 or 3 hours of sleep is never a good thing to do at night, especially when you have to focus. When having too much sleep, it can also increase the risk of having heart disease, stroke, diabetes and high blood pressure. Having proper sleep actually helps people do well in sports, quizzes, math and music and more. A short period of sleeping is called a nap, many people take something called a “power nap” during the day. Naps also help people become healthy and increase their brain function. The difference between sleep and nap are that sleep is for nighttime and people usually spend 8-11 hours of sleeping and nap is usually for daytime and people spend at least 30-90 minutes of napping.

Why am I telling you all of this? Because sleep is very important for me, so I can focus better. When I focus, I learn better and have fewer meltdowns. Every day and night, I sit in my massage chair to help me calm down, it helps me have good sleep at night and do well on my schoolwork. I did very well on my final quizzes after I sat in my massage chair and studied my notes before I took my final tests. When I relax I make better eye contact, speak well and become more aware, as well as get a good night’s sleep. Before I go to bed, I watch something on TV in the media room and sit in my massage chair to relax. I turn on the programs and sometimes have the lights off a bit, turn on the massage chair and relax. This helps me get ready for bed and allows me to sleep sound. I love having this massage chair as it is helping me in so many ways.

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 22, 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.

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.

We recently took our new Human Touch Novo Ascent Series massage chairs to a product launch event in Santa Monica, California. There, we invited people to test out the massage chair, and asked them what they thought. Here’s what they said:

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.
