Human Touch has brought to the market it's first L-Track massage chair. The Novo XT is an innovatively designed chair that boasts plenty of high grade features, i.e. 3D L-track, zero gravity, Bluetooth technology, 34 auto programs, space saving design, mechanical foot rollers, a 5-year limited warranty, fitting someone up to 6'9", and so much more. White glove delivery is also included with this massage chair.
A portion of every sale goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation
- 3D L-Track - Human Touch's first foray into the L-track market has resulted in a massage chair that offers not only an L-track roller system that will massage all the way from the neck and shoulders down to the thighs...but a 3D L-track at that!
- Mechanical Foot Rollers - Like most chairs today, the Novo XT also has mechanical foot rollers under each foot, combined with air cells to provide acupressure compression to key healing points.
- 34 Auto Programs - So many options for therapy with the Novo XT's 34 auto programs. Among so many others, this chair has full body immersion, deep tissue, recovery, and relaxation programs...including a full body stretch program.
- Bluetooth Technology - Just pair your device up with the chair and you can play your music playlists over the Novo XT's built in speaker system.
- Space Saving Feature - You can place your chair up to 2" away from any wall and safely recline your chair without hitting the drywall and scratching your paint. The space saving feature does exactly that...it takes up as little space as possible so that your chair optimizes room space.
- Lumbar Heat - Human Touch's exclusive warm air technology has been implemented into the Novo XT's feature set, to give you a warming heat throughout the lower back. The warm air continually flows up and down your lower back to loosen tight muscles and relax painful areas.
- Full Body Stretch - The Novo XT utilizes a "bend and stretch" approach to stretching the whole body. Flexion and extension of the hips and back will provide increased flexibility and relaxation.
- Fits up to 6'9" - There isn't any other chair that makes this claim! Not only can the Novo XT handle someone who is 6'9" tall, it can handle a weight of up to 300 lbs without any difficulty.
- Free White Glove Delivery - This is a big chair that comes in a big box. Not so easy to lift, so we've added free white glove delivery to make your life easier even before you get your new massage chair. Human Touch will have it shipped, delivered, unpacked, assembled, and packing material cleaned out without you having to even lift a finger.

Human Touch Novo XT Massage Chair Reviews (6)

I think we are as satisfied with this chair as any we could have purchased. I like that the chair can be very intense, as we have had some experience in more intense thai/chinese techniques and myofascia release. I wish the stretch could be programmed to stretch out a little more, but most of my criticisms of the chair like this are probably not going to be solved by another chair without introducing additional problems. I think this chair is the best on the market for our needs. It was between this and the Dreamwave, but the price savings of this chair won. I wish Inada would not rest on their historical success and would push development forward of a better chair for the US and European markets, rather than their newest Japan-only chairs which just include useless hocus-pocus features and designs sized for tiny people. Additionally this is an L-track chair and the Dreamwave a long S-track. I hope in a few years we will no longer have S and L track chairs, but a hybrid that provides the benefits of both (further reach to the glutes/hamstrings of the L track, and the ability to lie flat and better stretch programs with the S-track). I think most people would be satisfied with this chair, excepting those whose top priorities are stretching or very soft-touch programs (without using a blanket over the chair). I would strongly encourage anyone shopping for a massage chair to compare them in person all in the same day at one of Dr. Weidner's stores in Los Angeles or Salt Lake. It's well worth the expense of the trip for such a large purchase. By reading many of the articles and reviews on his website, we were well informed, but the personal and subjective experience of physically trying out all the chairs ruled out some preliminary top choices we had made based on facts and feature lists alone.

Great experience at the showroom trying all the different chairs. The price was the best we could find and the delivery went exactly as promised. The chairs are getting well used.

It does pretty much all you can expect a massage chair to do. It does a variety of massage maneuvers and techniques that I am still exploring after several days of multiple massages. The chair definitely has a lot of power, right now the lightest roller settings are already pretty strong and all I can handle, but there are more intensity settings and intense techniques such as Sport mode. Overall, it offers a variety of great massages that can go as deep as you like, and will leave you nice and sore.
Shoulders: Several methods of massaging your shoulders, offers the best a roller can do. Although it doesn't scan to find your exact height, like other chairs are said to do, so it takes a bit of trial and error to set the right height. At times I also need to straighten out/sit up to get the roller exactly where I want them.
Arms: Basic airbags doing their thing. Can be set to delivery a pretty tight squeeze.
Spine: Varies, some on the lighter maneuvers only slightly touch the lower spine, but others really dig in. Upper spine on is pretty intense, especially when the inward pointing airbags hold you down.
Above and on Butt: A little too strong. The lighter maneuvers are already pretty strong, but then if you do a stretch or set it to Sport mode, it gets very strong! This is where I get sore the most.
Stretch: Is a nice little feature, but I think I'm too tall (5'11'') to really get stretched out far enough. I like that it's there and use it from time to time, but shorter people will probably fall in love with it.
Feet: Really strong, had to put in the included pads. Opening one of the zippers wasn't easy, but I managed to open it enough to reach in there and place the pad. With the pad it's still pretty strong because it does a great job of using the airbags to squeeze your feet against the rollers and move them side to side.
Lower Legs: The lower legs also have airbags surrounding that at times squeeze them against the smaller, harder airbags to massage the back of your lower legs. I'd say it's pretty strong (especially since I usually max out the airbag intensity as I like it to really squeeze me), and the back of my legs got sore after the first day of use.
Misc: There is also a audio sync mode that seems pretty cool but I have yet to explore it.

I purchased this one for me and my wife, well what helped me the most to choose what to buy is checking your reviews and also this site for massage chairs.

This is a follow-up on my review of the Novo XT dated 1/16/17:
I had written that it's not possible to adjust the intensity for Auto programs. While this is true for the 3D rollers, I wanted to mention that adjusting the intensity of the airbags massage (called Cloud Touch on this chair) is possible in all programs, manual or automatic. In fact, Cloud Touch intensity is easily adjusted by pressing the left or right arrow keys on the circular pad of the remote. It's not necessary to enter the settings menu to make an adjustment, although it can be done there as well. This makes up a bit for my initial complaint that the remote forces you to return to the settings menu too much to make adjustments. And as I wrote in my first review, the display does a good job of showing you what the current Cloud Touch intensity setting is.
Although it seems as though the remote allows you to adjust 3D roller intensity with the auto programs, you'll notice in use that after you make a change, the auto program will quickly take over. In other words, if you choose "soft," in the auto program, it won't stay on that level. Now that I've used the chair more, I understand why it's designed this way. When choosing an auto program, the 3D rollers are used at various levels during the massage. At certain times and positions the massage will be deep, and others times it will be soft. This better mimics the techniques of a massage therapist.
Additionally, you can adjust the foot roller speed in both manual and automatic programs. The foot rollers can also be completely turned off if desired.
After stating in my first review that the stretch feature isn't useful, I've been surprised to find that I'm actually using the feature. It's not an intense stretch, but I'm starting to like it, nonetheless. The default is to have the leg extension go down when stretching, but I've switched it to go out instead and this seems better to me.
