Introduction

Home theater chairs are the finishing polish on a room that really makes an impact. While a good audio and video system is imperative to a quality experience, having a good set of leather chairs will really make a big splash on your guests. They really differentiate the dedicated rooms from those who simply shove a bunch of gear into a room. But what about replacing the typical high-end home theater chair with a massage chair from Human Touch? The possibilities are endless. For roughly the same price as a high-end custom chair you can have a robotic masseuse at your fingertips… now that's something to consider.

I'm surprised.

A story about a massaging chair that doesn't have a “happy ending”.

Try running your chair through the dishwasher.

The thing that really hooked me was the fact that you can buy some of these massage chairs for cheaper than some of the high-end motorized theater chairs. Drop the back, add a cup-holder, put in a bass-shaker… you get the idea… High-end home thetaer could be changed forever!

The massage thing would be great while watching news or TV shows but I don’t think I would want it on watching something like a Blu Ray movie.

However if one could mount a tactile transducer under it for movies then you would have the best of both worlds with that chair.

The one that I liked was the one that would stretch your spine. That was heaven. Unfortunately I have yet to sit in a roller type massage chair at any price point between $500 and $3000 that wasn't lumpy or saggy to sit in when the massage was off.
