1 - Automatic Massage Programs Via Airbag and Roller Technology

The MK-II PLUS Shiatsu Massage Chair by RELAXONCHAIR has a total of four different automatically integrated massage programs. Each program out of the four pre-set is designed specifically for either optimal recovery, relaxation, rejuvenation or for the purpose of refreshment.

Advanced airbag massage technique is utilized within the preset programs; massage being delivered to different body parts varies automatically in intensity as well as motion. For example, the pressure being applied by airbags meant for the arms and the calf is relatively subtle than that being delivered to the back of users.

2 - Availability of Customized Massage Settings

Aside from automatically integrated massage programs, the option of creating manual massages as per the user’s wishes is a highly anticipated feature by most prospective massage chair buyers. The MK-II PLUS Shiatsu Massage Chair by RELAXONCHAIR has a total of three types of massage motions; tapping, kneading as well as a combination of both those as mentioned above.

To further enhance the ability of users for customizing their massage experience, the MK-II PLUS Shiatsu Massage Chair by RELAXONCHAIR also integrated within three separate control levels for not only the massage speed but also for controlling the massage intensity being delivered by the airbags.

3 - Deep Tissue Massage Therapy Via L-Track System

The L-Track massage technology is meant primarily for those suffering from issues within the lower back. The L-Track system of the MK-II PLUS Shiatsu Massage Chair relies upon dual rollers, which adjusts to the shape of each user’s vertebrae and delivers a full body massage experience beginning from the neck, all the way under the gluteus muscles.

The intensity and motion of each roller in the L-Track system are set to create a comforting experience for users, by delivering a massage experience with enhanced penetration.

4 - Zero-gravity Positions

A zero-gravity stance is another one of the main features of the MK-II PLUS Shiatsu Massage Chair by RELAXONCHAIR. The manufacturers of this particular massage chair took the feature another step further by upgrading it with a total of three different zero-gravity positions. Such additions result with higher levels of relaxation being delivered to users by lifting the body completely off the ground in an astronaut-like- stance.

Aside from relaxation, each of the three positions can be utilized for correcting body posture by balancing the vertebrae, eliminating additional strain on the back; therefore, relaxing the nerves and increasing blood circulation. With the ability of users to be able to reach a 180-degree recline, their body weight can be balanced out for achieving higher levels of recovery, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

5 - Body Scanning Technique

Body scanning within massage chairs refers to the ability of each massage technique regardless of whether airbags or rollers, to adjust under the unique body-frame of each user. The MK-II PLUS Shiatsu Massage Chair by RELAXONCHAIR, as a result, provides the advantage of being able to accommodate users with consistently high-quality massages even when the body frame of its users differ significantly.

The automatic body scan within the MK-II PLUS Shiatsu Massage Chair by RELAXONCHAIR enhances the overall massage being executed by making it a more personalized, therapeutic professional massage experience.

6 - Heat Therapy

Not one but a total of two separate heating pads are located within the lower back area of the MK-II PLUS Shiatsu Massage Chair. The heating pads are designed particularly for increasing the level of massage penetration taking place inside of the lower back of users. Such targeted penetration works best with eradicating any unnecessary strain or tension being placed onto the vertebrae altogether.

7 - User-Friendly Controller

The controller remote manufactured by RELAXONCHAIR for the MK-II PLUS is highly user-friendly. The controller itself increases user convenience significantly by being comfortable to hold as well as operate with one hand only. The remote also contains a considerable screen size so that users can easily manage each setting and function integrated within.
