Outline

This massage sofa more closely resembles an easy sofa than an ordinary massage chair. With a full range of massage functions, this massage machine has a compact and simple design fitting various interior designs. Care has been taken to combine these functions into a sofa the size of an ordinary easy sofa. At first glance, nobody would think this was a massage chair. Still, it has not lost any of its massage performance. All aspects of this design have been newly developed, including its back height, its overall size, its round form comfortable for the user, its foot-massage feature that stores away neatly, its replaceable covers available in 10 colors, and its calm, gentle design, making it a brand new type of massage easy chair unlike any seen before.
