I received a call yesterday from a massage chair shopper wondering if the Human Touch HT-3300 massage chair had a stretch function and if the width of the rollers could be adjusted. Now, the HT-3300 chair is somewhat patterned after the old HT-125/135 chairs that Human Touch has discontinued. The new HT-7120 is the current popular seller of this body design type. But, the HT-3300, at $1499, is a lower priced alternative. Similar body design, but lacking in features that a more expensive model, like the HT-7120, would have.
So, what I am saying is…the HT-3300 does not have the stretch function or a roller width adjustment feature. The stretch function is something that every massage chair manufacturer tries to incorporate into their chairs, and I might say that the Human Touch version of the stretch is very good. I love the way it feels, and have gotten plenty of the same feedback from clients, on the HT-7120. But, unfortunately, it is not available on the HT-3300.
By the way, I should qualify something here about the stretch function. In peoples minds, they see a stretch function as something that actually stretches a part of the body out, i.e. a hamstring or lumbar muscles. Nothing of the sort!! I like to think of it more as a “milking” function, as the up and down movement of the chair back and ottoman do more a “milking” motion for the spinal discs and pelvic bones. It is very comfortable and makes you feel great once the session is over. Stretch, to me, is an appropriate title for the feature, but putting “Milking” on the remote might put across a wierd connotation.
I could see it now, “Human Touch introduces the new “Milking” function, developed by engineers and farmers!!” It ain’t gonna happen 🙂
Well, have a great day.
