4D massage chairs are the newest technology on the market and are popular because of their ability to mimic a human masseuse, due to the adjustability of the massage rollers.
With 4D massage chairs, the massage rollers go up, down, left, right, in and out, and you also have roller speed adjustments in certain programs for an even more precise and effective massage.

High-End Features of 4D Massage Chairs
The features of a high-end 4D massage chair can be impressive. The following are a sample of such features.
Everyone’s body is different. A good massage therapist has to adjust the massage technique to the unique body contours, the body scan feature on massage chairs do this. It’ll read your body curves and pinpoint sore muscles and customize the massage accordingly.
Prior to each massage, the 4D massage chair system performs a scan which will help to ensure the rollers are performing the massage in the right areas for your body.
Another great feature that most 4D massage chairs have is the ability to memorize your settings. Once you setup the massage intensity, speed, targeted zones, techniques, and other settings, you can save it for future sessions.
Various Massage Techniques
4D Massage chairs are built to replicate therapeutic massage, and thus most of the known massage techniques are added such as kneading, tapping/percussion, stretching, rolling, rubbing, shiatsu/acupressure, and others.
Most 4D massage chairs come with a zero gravity feature, which is a reclined position. The zero gravity position is said to mimic weightlessness and is generally considered as the best position to enjoy a massage.
The 4D massage chair can adjust to reach the zero gravity position which counteracts the effects of gravity on your spine throughout the massaging process, leading to an improvement of blood circulation.
Heat and Customization Settings
Some 4D massage chairs have heated rollers that move on three-axis resembling lifelike massage, disseminating mild heat throughout the body tracks, releasing tension, and treating sore muscles. There are different customizable speed, intensity, and strength levels of pressure to your personal liking on most models.
4D massage chairs are equipped with airbags located in various places throughout the chair. Each brand or model may have the airbags located in slightly different areas, and some models will have more airbags than others.
