Most-Loved Massage Chair Features

Zero Gravity Feature

A Zero Gravity Massage Chair is a specialty new massage chair.

It’s designed to stimulate your body’s weightlessness in space, which causes you to feel like you are floating above the floor.

Zero Gravity massage chair takes the pressure off your back and gives the rollers better access to your whole body, which means more effective massages.

A traditional massage chair can only reach so far down on your back – it’s very limited in how deep its rollers can go to provide relaxation for sore muscles.

The best massage chairs not only provide a full body massage but also comes with Zero Gravity recline.

3D + 4D Technology:

If you’ve been shopping around for a massage chair, you’ve no doubt noticed that 3D and 4D models are available. And if you’re wondering how the technology differs, you’re not alone – we get this question from customers quite frequently.

This technology has to do with the massage rollers, speed, precision, and axis. They help target specific areas in the neck and back, full body, help with blood flow, enhance kneading tapping, shiatsu massage, and more!

The simple answer is that 2D roller technology has been the standard for many years, while 3D chairs are designed to improve the quality of massage.

Therapeutic chairs with 4D technology are the newest to hit the market, and they further enhance the massage experience.

Air compression therapy with massage rollers can bring perfect relaxation

SL Track massage chair

The S in S Track stands for “sinusoidal,” which is just a fancy way to say “wave.” These roller tracks follow the curve of the spine, moving up and down from the neck to the lower back. L Track massage chairs work the same way as S Tracks, but can extend further down the body from nape of neck shoulders, lower back, gluteal muscles, and over all full body.


Space Saving

You wont have to worry about scratched walls, or bruised up paint as Dr. Care massage chairs all come with space saving technology that enables you to recline, go into zero gravity, and back.

Our Dr.Care massage chair is roughly about the same size as an individual reclining chair. They do require only about 6 inches of space behind the backrest at any given position.

Once you place it in the correct position, you are set to go! You can safely place the chair in your living room, master suite, or wherever you feel suits best for your massage chair!

Bluetooth Speakers

This is key for Sonic therapy. Listen to your favorite relaxing playlist, podcast, meditation body scanning audio, and beyond with our high quality blue tooth speakers.

Foot Rollers

Dr. Care massage chairs are built in such a way that the roller heads allowed to protrude from the track to bring your massage to places that are typically neglected by your average chair.

Foot rollers along with Airbags providing compression therapy, bring to life a whole new meaning to “luxury”

Massage Techniques

In the backrest of each massage chair, there are certain advanced mechanisms and technology that work alongside massage chair programs, to facilitate the full body massage experience.

At their core are massaging arms and massage rollers that imitate the movements of human hands, mimic human touch, and perform specific massage techniques and types of massages.

Massage styles include:

  • Deep tissue massage

  • Shiatsu Massage

  • Kneading massage

  • Lower back massage

  • Reflexology

  • Kneading shiatsu

In addition, the air bags assist with compression therapy massage in the legs, calfs, hips, shoulders, backs, feet, which help with increased blood flow.

When looking for features of a massage chair buying a massage chair, it is important to note the type of automatic programs it offers and which massage techniques can be used in it.

Knowing what features and automatic massage programs that your massage chair offers is very important!

Extendable Footrest

If you’re a big or tall person the extendable footrest is one of the best features on the Dr.Care full-body massage chair to being your entire body comfort. During the process of the body scan, the chair will adjust to your body type and length.

It is important to look for a massage chair that offers this feature automatically instead of having to do it manually.

Body Scan

Body Scan Technology gives you the most accurate and precise massage.

Body Scan automatically customized for your specific body type. Body Scan works by using sensors and state of the art computing technologies to automatically detect the size, shape and curves of your body.

The great part about this is that because the massage is tailored for your body, you won’t even need to adjust any manual settings! All Dr. Care massage chairs come with this feature.

Air Bags

Compression airbags provide a compression massage, as opposed to the kneading, rolling, or tapping motions provided by rollers.

While airbags can be used to simulate these techniques by rapidly inflating and deflating them, it is much more common for them to be performed by massage rollers in the massage chair.

When performing the massage, the airbags will inflate around the area to be massaged—such as your arm—and compress the area. The intensity will vary depending upon how much the airbag is inflated.
