It has a wide range of capabilities, user flexibility, and multiple language support. 

The covering is made of superior synthetic leather and wide panel. 

It has a sleek design that will make it fit in any living room without looking out of place.

Let’s take a look at the features and Programs.

Features and Programs

3D Massage

The Osaki massage chair is designed with the intent to offer vigorous in-depth massage with its 3D rollers. 

A roller is considered 3D when it can move forward, backward sideways and still protrude outwards. 

The rollers are what makes a massage chair,  because without the rollers you will not be able to provide an effective massage just like a human hand does.

3D rollers make a chair humanistic in nature, they act as thumbs, which tap, slide, punch and knock, in other to loosen up tight muscles and provide relief. 

Osaki OS Monarch chair uses the next generation 3D massage rollers to give a quality massage that even beats what a human hand can do.

The rollers are 42” long, with that extended length reaching up to the glutes, you can be sure that it will give you a thorough massage.

L-track Formation

Track formations are like the rails which carry the massage rollers from the base of the neck down to the other regions of the back.

Osaki OS Monarch is equipped with an L-shaped track, this means that the massage rollers will move from the base of the neck to underneath the buttocks offering glute massage.

The L-track formation is the best type of formation for the rollers to travel on because it reaches more areas than an S-track would.

While an S-track will usually stop at the waist region, the L-track offers a 50% more coverage area.

An L-track massage chair will always beat an S-track massage chair anytime, except for when it uses a vibration massage therapy to augment it.

Zero-gravity

Zero-gravity position is attained when your legs are raised to the position where your body feels weightless while lying down. 

Osaki OS Monarch massage chair is equipped with this functionality, at the push of a button you can recline the chair to attain the zero-gravity effect. 

At this position, the spine is decompressed as the backrest supports it. 

This brings about an increase in blood flow, enhanced circulation helps to flush toxins from the body, improve wellbeing and make you feel better.

Air Massage

Osaki OS Monarch has airbags attached at the arms, feet, upper arms, shoulders and hands. These airbags inflate and deflate to produce pressure which is used to massage those parts of the body where the rollers cannot get to. 

Air massage helps to increase blood circulation, remove stress and tension from the body. 

The air massage can also be used to stretch out tight muscles and areas where you feel a build-up of stress.

There are 36 airbags that Osaki OS Monarch has, with its strategic positioning it is quite effective.

If your type of job involves sitting down for long periods of time, you may find that this is the chair to buy, as the air massage feature will help to destress your shoulder blades while the rollers work your back.

Built-in Bluetooth Speakers

If you want to enjoy your favorite selections while getting a massage, you can do it easily with the built-in Bluetooth speakers that are comfortably situated near your ears.

Playing music during a massage helps to calm the nerves and relax you.

I love to play Jazz music while getting a massage improves my well being and helps me refresh after a hard day’s work.

Heat at the Lumbar

There are heat pads that are attached to the lumbar region in Osaki OS Monarch, the heat warms up the back region and loosens up the muscles. 

Our backs often carry a lot of the stress in our bodies especially the waist, being able to warm it up will make the rollers do a more thorough job.

I like to compare the heat therapy on this chair to when you use a hot water bottle to massage areas in your body where you feel pain. 

The heat apart from being therapeutic also eases the pain and makes you relax.

USB Connector

Osaki OS Monarch has an option for you to charge your phone while taking a massage.

The USB connector is positioned near the armrest to make it easy for you to reach when you need it most. 

If you love to be on your phone while the massage is going on, you do not have to worry about battery life.

LCD Remote

The remote control is LCD, the screen is quite visible and the buttons easy to locate. 

On the screen, you can see the massage functions you are using per time.

All the controls are intuitive and easy to use.

The remote can also be used to set the manual massage settings for mode, speed, 3D, position, and width.

These programs are targeted at specific issues in the body.

Manual Massage styles

The manual massage styles used in this chair include Knocking, Tapping, Kneading, and Shiatsu.

Massage Intensity and Speed

There are 3 ranges of adjustability which the massage points have (Airbags and Rollers). The ranges are Speed, Intensity, and width.

Intensity

The Intensity of a massage is how hard the massage point presses on your body to effect massage. 

The intensity of the airbags or rollers can be adjusted to suit your requirements. 

The intensity in the airbags connotes pressure which is used to stretch or twist the body while the massage is going on.

Roller intensity can be adjusted by making the rollers protrude more into the back region. 

The protrusion is what gives rise to the third dimension of the massage.

You can also adjust the intensity of the massage by using the removable back pads. 

The back pads when removed provide more access to your back area, when it is fixed, it cushions the effect of the massage.

Speed

The speed of the rollers is how fast the rollers can massage your body, rollers usually have ball heads which are ergonomically designed to resemble human thumbs. 

These balls move at varying speeds as controlled by the user. 

They also move according to the massage style being deployed.

Osaki OS Monarch designed its massage chair so you can adjust the speed of the massage rollers as it suits you, it can be adjusted from slow to fast.

Width 

The width of the rollers determines how wide laterally that the rollers are, the wider the width, the more it is able to cover more areas of the back region. 

The width of the rollers can be adjusted from narrow to wide.

The adjustment of the roller width also makes it easy to perform spot massage. 

If you like to concentrate your massage on a spot on the back of your neck, for instance, you will want to narrow the width of the rollers to touch that specific area.

Special Features

Space-saving Technology

Osaki OS Monarch used the next generation technology to conserve space while designing this chair, the massage chair needs only one inch from the wall when reclining, this is a very unique feature.

The need for space conservation was utmost in their mind while designing this chair.

Most massage chairs even with the claim of space-saving technology still require at least 3 inches of space from the wall while reclining fully.

I particularly like the fact that even if all you own is a studio apartment, this chair will still fit in.

Extended Ottoman

The footrest for Osaki OS Monarch has a large legroom space, this is quite special and significant because it gives it an opportunity to serve people who have very long legs. 

The footrest can extend up to 13.5 inches long. 

Most massage chairs just give legroom of about 7 inches.

The footrest will begin to adjust as soon as you push your feet forward.

Reflexology Foot Massage

Getting a good foot massage is one reason people buy massage chairs, this is because our feet carry a lot of stress as they support our bodies while we move around.  

Osaki OS monarch has triple foot rollers underneath the feet. 

These rollers spin in different directions to massage the acupressure points under the feet. 

The airbags also press on the feet as it inflates and deflates providing pressure which presses down on the feet to gain maximum exposure.

Acupressure points on the feet connect to different parts of our bodies, so when you massage them, tension and stress are relieved from those parts.

Multi-language support

Osaki OS Monarch has 3 languages for ease of use, they are Chinese, English and Korean. Multilanguage support gives them wider access to markets that do not understand the English language.
