What Makes a Massage Chair 4D?

One of the most common questions asked is, “What is 4D Massage Chair?” This article recaps the differences between 2D, 3D, and 4D massage chairs and then goes in-depth about the features and functions that a 4D massage chair provides.


To recap our previous article:

  • 2D Massage Chairs: The rollers move up and down and from left to right.
  • 3D Massage Chairs: The rollers move up and down from left to right and into the body to provide pressure to provide a deep tissue experience.


And then we get to 4D:

  • 4D Massage Chairs: The rollers move like a 3D massage chair but provide additional control over the speed of the rollers that massage the body.


Now we’ll get a little bit further into the details:

The 2D massage chair is the most common chair on the market. In fact, until recent years, it was the only option available on the market. If you have encountered a massage chair at a mall or an airport, chances are you’ve encountered a 2D massage chair. It gives a general and gentle massage. In recent years, massage chair designers have created 3D and 4D massage mechanisms to augment traditional 2D models.


While a 3D massage chair features rollers that travel up and down, left and right, and in and out against one’s back, a 4D massage mechanism adds the roller’s speed level that contacts the back. 4D models allow one to control the rollers’ strength and speed. Ultimately, this gives the user complete control over the massage they receive and enjoy different benefits.  As 4D models are quickly becoming the standard, we will focus on the benefits of a 4D massage chair mechanism for the remainder of this article.


A 4D massage chair mimics a deep tissue massage delivered by human hands. While, as mentioned, a 3D massage chair features rollers that travel up and down, left and right, in and out against your back, a 4D massage mechanism adds an extra dimension of variable speed. This variability is what makes a 4D massage chair experience feel genuinely personalized.


A 4-D Massage Chair Features The Following Core Features:


Advanced Massage Rollers: 4D rollers mimic a deep tissue massage, with variable speed and intensity suited to your preference.


Variable Massage Intensity Levels: Control the intensity of every massage with the touch of a button.


Precise Coverage: Many 4D massage chairs feature scanning technology to provide a massage more finely tuned to your frame.


4D Massage Chairs Typically Offer The Following Features:


There Are Many More Benefits to a 4D Massage That Include:


Lifelike Massage: A three-axis roller and adjustable speed mechanism can recreate the movements and feel of a professional massage therapist. A premium SL-track massage chair also extends further down the back (to the glutes) to massage areas that traditional massage chairs will not reach.


Tension Relief: Massage chairs can help alleviate back pain, muscle tension, tension headaches, and stiffness.


Spine Decompression: A 4D “zero gravity” massage chair reduces the force of gravity on your spine which can help reduce pressure and alleviate pain.


Convenience: Massage Chairs allow you to enjoy the relaxation, pain-relieving, and stress-reducing benefits of a massage any time you wish.


In conclusion, a 4D massage chair offers many features over 2D and 3D massage chairs. In particular, a 4D massage chair features advanced massage rollers that mimic deep tissue massage. This is combined with variable speed rollers that allow the user to control the intensity levels. Lastly, 4D massage rollers offer precision coverage – a feature that scans the body to provide a massage suited to the user’s frame.
