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! The Panasonic MA73 massage 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.
The arm rests of the Panasonic MA73 massage chair adjust automatically to massage both arms and hands - 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.
The Panasonic MA73 massage chair, as with all Panasonic massage chairs, comes with threshold delivery, meaning that the chair will actually be delivered into your home.

Panasonic MA73 Massage Chair Reviews (4)

Working with Dr. Alan Weidner of Massage Chair Relief gives you a secure feeling with his wealth of knowledge and sharing this in such a personal way. Between our telephone calls and his videos my decision was easy on the selection of the Panasonic MA-73 message chair. Yes, it is a sizable investment, but the choice has proven to be the right one. It feels like I have a personal masseuse in my home that is available anytime of the day. Because this chair automatically measures your body the 3-D rollers are perfectly positioned to relieve the tensions in your neck, shoulders and down your entire back. There are many automated programs to select from along with a magnitude of manual selections. The stretch program is one my favorites covering my body from head to toe and leaving me so refreshed I nearly have to pinch myself to make sure it is really me. I have tried each and every program liking them all. However, the intensity of the rollers on my back became too extreme. To resolve this issue I inserted a padded insert from a previous iJoy chair that was furnished for the same reason by that company. It was an easy fix and the result was perfect. What could be better than a massage chair that also doubles as a great looking recliner chair. I guess you could say I’m a very satisfied customer.

I have to say spending over 7000.00 on the internet scared me to death.I live in Cleveland Ohio and was worried about logistics. I have to say my experience with Massage Chair Relief was outstanding. I first spoke to Michael who is the perfect gentleman. Then I talked with Dr. Alan himself. I first purchased the Luraco I7 Robitics and all was good. When I got home from work I jumped on it and knew it was not the chair for me. It's a awesome chair but it was too strong for my back and I also wanted it to be a lounger for me and that did not work. If you follow Dr. Alan's instructions and keep the box and all the paperwork they give you 90 days for return. We packed it up and put it in my garage and Dr. Alan had his people pick it up. I then had a long conversation with Michael and Alan and chose the new Panasonic MA73. What a chair, it's perfect for me. I'm still learning the controls but it's an awesome chair. In this day and age it's hard to trust people and Michael and Dr. Alan are true to there word . I have both there cell numbers and feel that I have 2 new friends. If you are looking for a massage chair, this is the place. Kudos to both of you and thanks for the great service.

I visited massage-chair-relief in mid January, I was looking for a chair that would help my neck and low back pain. My wife was concerned about the chair looking out of place in our living room, so we were looking for a chair that looked like a regular recliner. The panasonic ma73 fit the bill. Dr Weidner was great to work with, gave me a great price and got the chair to me very quick. I have only had it for a week but have already felt the difference in my back. Best purchase I have ever made. I would recommend massage-chair-relief to anyone.

I visited the Massage Chair Relief Utah store and spent an afternoon trying numerous higher-end massage chairs. Dr. Alan Weidner was very kind, spending the entire afternoon with me. He helped me understand the features, and answered all my questions. I really appreciated his attention as I had traveled from Portland, Oregon, (about a two hour flight), just to try the many robotic massage devices in his showroom. He even took me to and from the airport, bought me lunch, and reduced the cost by $500 to cover my travel expenses.
I ended up purchasing the Panasonic MA73 Massage Chair. I liked how the chair felt to me, which was better than most, and second to none. The 3D massage heads felt wonderful on my back. And my feet, legs, arms, hands, and neck also felt great with this chair. I liked the way the chair looks, and that it is designed to function well as a recliner too. Most of all, I really liked the quality I perceived. From the ease of using good looking controls, to the feel of the materials, and the movement of the rollers, the chair really stood out as exceptional. And that is saying a lot considering the variety of chairs that Dr. Weidner has on display.
I’m looking forward to getting my new chair! :-)
