The lastest offering from Panasonic includes new features such as a 3-D massage mechanism, air massage technology, 3 all-new massage & stretching techniques, heated jade massage heads, and a reversible ottoman! This chair does better than most at serving not only as a therapeutic massage chair, but also a regular recliner when the massage features are not in use.
New! Heated Jade Massage Heads
Realistic massage therapist techniques combined with the healing relaxing of heat. Its like warm hands of a professional masseuse that loosen tense, sore muscles, relieving tension and stimulating increased blood flood.
Hand & Arm Massage
Gently kneads from above and below relaxing the hand and arm and relieving tension.
Adjusts automatically to massage both arm and hand - even when lying down.
Hip & Thigh Massage
Airbags around the waist and thighs relax the trunk and lower back.
3D air cushions surrounding the feet gently squeeze for a realistic foot massage experience.
Gently stimulates your lymphatic system to help cleanse the body.
New! Massage for the Shoulders
Airbags hold the shoulders in place as the massage heads knead the back, from the shoulders to the chest.
Buttocks, Pelvis, & Thigh Stretching
3 airbags under the seat and thighs relax you by gently stretching.
New! Massage for the Pelvis
Airbags on both sides hold the pelvic area in place as the massage heads knead the lower back.
Airbags gently knead both sides of the calves, loosening and increasing circulation.
New! Massage for the Legs
Airbags inflate to hold the sides of the thighs, calves and soles of the feet. The legrest rises to stretch the leg muscles while the back is gently kneaded.
The foot and calf massagers can now be hidden from view with the reversible ottoman feature.

Panasonic MA70 Massage Chair Reviews (4)

My sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Weidner. The information on his website and personal phone calls were instrumental in both my purchasing decision and the chair I ended up with. I purchased a previously used chair (a couple of days of in home use) that was a return to him because the previous customer thought the massage from the chair was a tad too vigorous. I love the chair and the massage it provides (and so does my wife) and the excellent quality of the chair. It also looks like a piece of fine furniture which is a huge plus too. I have had 4 massages in the last 4 days and am so very happy with how they feel and how I feel afterward. You cannot go wrong buying from him. And he knows the business inside and out. Thank you for such excellent guidance and care through a major purchasing decision.

After trying virtually every chair in his shop I decided upon the Panasonic MA-70. Since it's arrival I have had to compete with my kids for time in it. I am still experimenting with the different programs, but I am confident that I will enjoy every minute of finding and fine tuning the intensity of both the rollers and the air. Great chair, brings great relaxation. Dr. Weidner was patient and kind, and a joy to business with.

First, I want to thank Dr. Weidner for all his help. It took me a long time to decide on a chair. After reading everything there is to read about massage chairs we decided to go with the Panasonic MA70. My concerns were does it give a good neck/and shoulder massage. It gives a very intense massage. It took me two weeks to get use to the intensity ( even on the lowest setting. ) I love that I can save the program and just press what massage I want and it's already there without doing adjustments.
The controls are extremely easy to use and you don't have to keep looking in the manual to figure things out. When the chair isn't being used you can flip the ottoman and the back cushion and you would never know it was a massage chair. We we're skeptical about buying a chair on line but massage-chair-relief and Dr. Weidner we're excellent. I hear that Panasonic chairs rarely ever break but it I ever needed to replace this one I would definitely call. Dr. Weidner. ( I talked to several other on-line companies and none compared to the service that we received with massage-chair-relief. They were there to help thru the whole process.

Excellent! This is the CTS Cadillac of massage chairs.Panasonic have out done themselves, with this MA70 massage chair.It absolutely does everything it says it could do,and it looks great when not in use, along side of the rest of my furniture.This chair is worth every penny,and I have no regrets about the cost.So if you are in the market of buying, this is the one I highly recommend."GO BIG OR GO HOME"because this chair is the one that really massage from your neck to your feet.But most of all Dr. Weidner is awesome, he'll answer all your question on the spot either in an email or on the phone.Thank You Dr. Weidner
