Endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association Panasonic massage chairs are the first chairs to be approved by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), the largest professional association in the world representing doctors of chiropractic. In fact, this distinction represents the first massage chair endorsement given by the ACA. Recognizing the many health benefits of regular massage, the ACA found that Panasonic massage chairs provide outstanding deep-tissue relief, which can temporarily relax tense muscles, offering an ideal complement to chiropractic manipulation.

The Technology Acupoints
You have approximately 350 acupoints in your body, with nearly 100 in your back and neck. From the soothing palm style of Swedish massage, to deep tissue kneading, to Shiatsu massage, the Panasonic Modern Collection has a variety of techniques to target acupoints, resulting in invigorating energy.

Massage Therapist Techniques
Using 2 or 4 firm rubber massage heads, the Panasonic Modern Collection accurately simulates stroking with the palm of hand, pressing with the heel of the hand, kneading and applied pressure with thumbs.
Air Ottoman System
The EP1285 features a 14 airbag circulation system for a more complete, contoured lower body massage including: Calves - kneading and loosening of the shins and calf muscles. Feet - upward pressure is applied using four airbags for ultimate relief.

Leg Stretch
Works to alleviate stiffness in your lower back, hips and thighs. The air system in the ottoman squeezes the lower legs while it lowers and raises in 20 degree increments.

Deep Neck/Shoulder Massage
The floating mechanism simulates the movements of a rotating wrist for an amazingly life-like massage. This outstanding feature lets the Panasonic Modern Collection perform various massage actions.
Auto Recline Recline is controlled electronically to 170 degrees, allowing you to choose the position in which you're most comfortable while receiving your massage.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy with purchase of this massage chair This massage chair has a nice variety of settings. It is quiet in its operation. The quality is just as i expeceted from Panasonic- excellent. I use this chair at my office and it is a great way to start the day! March 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Subtle yet effective We have had this machine for 6 years now with complete satisfaction. It is simple and well built. While it lacks many of the new snazzy features like other machines offer - the plain task of getting a kneading or gentle massage is well performed with reliability and is a trouble free unit. The foot and calf section was a second unit which we note is now part of this one unit. That we have not used much as it offers only air compression and opposed to a full knead. Great product - bought from Costco 6 yrs ago which of course they do not offer now. November 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beyond my expectation was surprised the features and effectiveness of this chair, it is definitely worth the $1390.50. I had tried many massage chairs such as Osim both are equally good in the same category but Panasonic is much, much cheaper. I like the manual set-up as you can control the massage head up, down and Adjusting the Width between Massage Heads and Increase or decrease the massage speed. You can customize your liking and positioning but too bad you cannot save it. Oh yes, I like the leg stretching and squeezing the feet and legs. As far as Reflexology I didn't feel anything. I have to ask customer support for that. November 21, 2008
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good but a bit misleading This chair is everything Panasonic says it is except for the fact that there's no foot massage. The specs indicate that foot/sole massage is one of the features, but it only squeezes your foot sideway, there is nothing on your sole. Having said that, it is still a very good chair, but if I had known it does not do sole message, I would have ordered the one with the separate ottoman (EP1082KL) instead. November 14, 2008
