Review of the Human Touch HT-7120 Massage Chair

HT-7120 Massage Chair Review

The HT-7120 Massage Chair from the well-known Human touch is a very popular massage chair. It comes as a newer model of the HT-125, HT-135, and HT-136, all of which had their share of popularity during the last 4 to 5 years. The HT-7120 comes with new and improved features that make it a fantastic and worthwhile massage chair.

HT-7120 Massage Chair Features

Adjustment of roller intensity. The HT-7120 comes with a button on the remote to adjust the intensity of the rollers, to increase or decrease the intensity of the massage. The massage chair still provides a damper pillow, to further accommodate in case the lowest intensity is still not satisfactory. This model however, gives you the option to remove and hide the damper pillow in the chair back which can be zipped open and close.

Human Touch massage chairs are renowned for their intense rollers that provide nice vigorous massages. The HT-7120 possesses intense rollers just like its counterparts, but has the added benefit of being able to be adjusted to accommodate for different levels of intense massage.

Adjustment of calf airbags intensity. This is another valuable feature of the HT-7120. Older models came with default calf airbag intensity. The newer HT-7120 model enables adjustment of calf width, which regulates the amount of air pumped into the calf airbags to inflate it more or less, and adjust intensity. Additionally, as with other models, this massage chair gives you the option to remove the calf massage wells by rotating the ottoman and instead using it as a normal leg rest.

Low back heat. Previous massage chair models did not possess any form of heating. The HT-7120 features low back heat, which is a nice option for individuals who want to add extra warmth to their massage, and is especially helpful for massaging areas with chronic muscle scar tissue.

Sophisticated style and design. As opposed to older models which had very plain designs, the HT-7120 is very elegant, stylish and almost resembles an executive chair. While retaining identical bonded leather upholstery, its design is certainly an upgrade of previous models.

• The HT-7120 comes with a lever on the side of the chair to manually move the ottoman up and down, to adjust chair height.

Other notable features of the HT-7120 massage chair include:

• A swivel base feature. The HT-7120 has a swivel base that allows a 60 degree swivel of the massage chair, and is one of a handful of massage chairs that has this feature.

• Three automatic massage programs. The HT-7120 provides the basic full body, upper back and lower back massage programs, that enable effective massages for individuals.

• One year comprehensive on-site warranty.

• A ‘Stretch’ massage program. This program available with the HT-7120 is very popular among users. It involves the calf airbags working at your calves, and the rollers massage up and down your back, while the chair shifts up and down.

• No body scan technology. The HT-7120 does not have the scanning technology by Human Touch called the “Acupoint Detection System” that reads the spine and back of a user to determine a suitable massage. This feature is available in the HT-7450 and HT-9500 models.

Overall, the HT-7120 is a great massage chair that is worth its value. It costs under $3000, and manufactured in China. It is made by the giant and well-known US massage chair company, Human Touch, which provides an excellent customer service department that can assist with any enquiries about your chair. The HT-7120 is the perfect massage chair and provides an excellent and vigorous massage.

Lots of Massage Chair News!

A lot is going on right now with the massage chair biz! I told you last week that Inada is discontinuing their D-5 Robo Chair and D-6 Robostic massage chair models because of the popularity of their new Sogno massage chairs.

Well, I learned last week that Human Touch has dropped their Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) on the HT-1650 massage chair to $3999 (from $4795) and on the HT-7450 zero gravity massage chair to $3299 (from $3999). They have also dropped their MAP pricing on the HT-125 to $1999 (from $2299). I wondered if perhaps they were planning on discontinuing these models, too, especially the HT-1650 since they dropped the price on that chair to such a low MAP. I was frankly stunned by the low price on the HT-1650. But, it is great for you, the consumer.

The Panasonic 1285 “Urban” massage chair is now in stock. It has been a popular seller and was out of stock for quite some time. It is now in stock…but for how long, I have no idea.

We sold our Inada Sogno PLUS floor model last weekend because we wanted to bring in the chocolate Inada Sogno PLUS Chocolate with Black Interiormodel with the new black interior material. It had previously had gray interior, but I think with the ease with which that color dirtied, they decided on a black interior. Good move, if you ask me. It stays cleaner and it actually looks pretty sharp…don’t you agree? Well, we got our new Sogno PLUS on Wednesday and Steffanie and I put it together right away. It looks very handsome.

Well, that’s about it for today. Spring is finally in the air here in Utah. It has been a long and cool winter and spring so far. I am so looking forward to a warm summer (I love summer!!). I hope you all have a wonderful and rejuvenating spring.

Some Massage Chair Model Changes…And A Few Other Things

I haven’t written in my blog for a while and figured it was time to update you as to what is going on in the industry and in our business/showroom.

1. We have been notified that the HT-135 massage chair by Human Touch has been completely sold out and is now discontinued. We will be pulling it from our website within the next 24 hours.  They still have the HT-125 and HT-136 massage chairs available.

2. I added a Google search feature to our website. You will notice that underneath the financing image on each page of our site (on the upper right hand corner) there is a search field. Just type in any word, model, feature that you are curious about and this search engine will bring up every reference to that word that exists on our site. It may help you in your massage chair purchase process.

3. Some time ago I added a Google map feature to the home page to show where we our showroom is located. I don’ t know if you are aware of this, but their is a field by the map that asks you to “Enter your starting address”. For local folks, here in Utah, this is a great way to get directions to our showroom.

4. One of our massage chair manufacturers announced yesterday that they will be offering extremely low pricing on a couple of their models because they will be discontinuing those models after current stock is gone. I cannot mention who this company is or what models are being offered at an incredible price until April 15. I will post on this blog and send out an email blast to everyone on my “Special Report” list. If you have not requested my free report, “5 Things You Absolutely Must Know Before You Even Consider Investing In A High-Quality, Robotic Massage Chair”, you can go to the home page and sign up for it. Once on that list you will be notified of specials like the one I am talking about for the 15th.

5. I’ve added the Panasonic 1285 “Urban” massage chair to our showroom.  It is another $2699 chair that I felt would serve our clients who are looking for a less expensive, high quality massage chair.

Well, that’s about it for now.

Let me know if I can assist you in any way in your massage chair purchase decision process. We are always available to you. Our toll free number is 1-888-259-5380 and our local showroom number is 801-417-8240.

Well, as I mentioned in previous blog posts, their have been some developments with some of our massage chair models:

1. The Panasonic 30003 massage chair has been discontinued. The only reason we still have “In Stock” on our website is because we have our floor model available.

2. The HT-125 massage chair will be discontinued in 2009.

So, this means that I have two chairs on my showroom floor that must now be sold, since there are no news ones to sell! This is what I am making available to my website visitors:

1. Panasonic 30003 Massage Chair (black color)
Regular Price: $3999

3. I have two HT-1650 massage chairs in my showroom, with room for only 1. The HT-1650 is our 2nd most popular seller, behind the new Sogno PLUS massage chair. I am selling my black HT-1650 floor model for $3295!

HT-1650 Massage Chair by Human Touch (black)
Regular Price: $4795
Floor Model Price: $3295
The Panasonic 30003 and the HT-1650 are still under warranty. They are all good chairs, with a lot of mileage left in them. The upholstery is fantastic and they are all very, very clean.

I will pay for the shipping for you as well as throw in the bonus gifts that we offer with all our chairs. The Visa Gift Card special will not apply, however.

If you are interested in one or all of these chairs, you will have to call the office to place the order. Here is our toll free number: 1-888-259-5380. We’ll take good care of you over the phone.

By the way, we will be replacing these massage chairs but I am just not sure with what chairs! For sure, we will be carrying the Inada D5 Robo Massage Chair and the new Panasonic 30007 massage chair in the showroom and probably another HT model chair (either the HT-5005, HT-5270, or HT-5320…do you have an opinion as to which you would like to see in our showroom? Let us  know by responding to this blog entry and we’ll seriously consider your opinion). We may also carry the Perfect Chair, which is not a massage chair but one heckuva therapeutic chair made by Human Touch.

HT-125/135/136 Massage Chairs Change in 2009

Human Touch 125 Massage Chair
Human Touch 125 Massage Chair

I was just notified by my people at Human Touch that HT-125/135/136 family of massage chairs will be discontinued at regular online and offline retailers, like, in 2009. I don’t know what the exact date is, but I was told to plan on it. Apparently, the models will not be discontinued altogether, but will only be available through certain discount stores as an exclusive for that store.

So, the long and short of it is, sometime in early 2009 we will not be carrying these models anymore. It is a popular set of chairs, so they will be missed, but Human Touch has come out with so many new and exciting models that the pain of losing these other models is not as severe.  We will be selling the HT-125 massage chair that I have in the showroom and will replace it with the HT-5005, I believe.

By the way, if you are interested in my floor model, which is a cashew model, let me know. HT-125 massage chair by Human Touch (cashew)It retails for $2299, but I could sell it to an interested buyer for $1299, and that INCLUDES SHIPPING from our showroom to your home or business AND it includes the bonus gifts that we include with every purchase. It does not, however,  include the Visa Gift Card offer this month. It is a few years old, but it is in excellent condition. It looks great in cashew! Feel free to call our toll-free number if you want to talk to me about it. Our number is 1-888-259-5380. Steffanie will probably answer the phone, but you can ask her about it too. It won’t last for long, so if you are interested before Christmas, let me know asap. You can see an image of it on the right. Not bad, eh?

Before I go, I just wanted you to know that I posted a new article on the internet about the HT-1650 massage chair…one of my favorites. Here is the link to the article:
(yes, that is me in the ht-1650 massage chair)

Enjoy. Have a super day!

“Red” HT-125 and HT-135 Massage Chair Models To Be Discontinued!

I just thought you’d like to know that the red color in the HT-125 massage chair and HT-135 massage chair are being discontinued this week. In other words, in 48 hours the red HT-125 and HT-135 massage chair models will not  be available anymore from Human Touch. Human Touch tells me that no other colors at present will replace the red models, but may at some time in the future.

I told you a couple of weeks ago that the dark chocolate color of the HT-7120 massage chair has also been discontinued and will be replaced by the Espresso color.The Espresso is now in stock. It is up on our website, although we don’t have the image up yet (the old dark chocolate image is still up). The price on the HT-7120 is still $2699 for all models.

The colors still available in the HT-125 massage chair are black and cashew. The colors remaining in the HT-135 are black and cappucino.

Unfortunately, there is no price deal for the remaining red HT-125’s and HT-135’s. They are still $2299 and $2399, respectively, although the red is gone in a couple of days.
