Human Touch Certus Massage Chair

Besides being eye-catching, the sleek Human Touch Certus is also remarkably functional. Known as the Latin word for sure, certain, resolved, or reliable, Certus means sure, certain, resolved, or dependable. You can depend on this massage chair to become a welcome part of your wellness routine. As your partner in wellness, Certus helps you achieve good health through self-care.

As you move from the top of your spine all the way to your thighs, the Certus stimulates all the joints in your spine in three dimensions. Relax with auto programs designed to help you achieve a new state of relaxation. As the unique outer orbital massage soothes overworked feet and tired calves, tension will melt away from your feet and legs. By stretching dynamically, you will be able to lengthen your back and muscles, giving you energy and vitality.

Compared to Other Chairs

You will be able to restore your natural state of wellness with the Certus after a long day at work. You can also expect it to be a talking point at your next dinner party thanks to its sleek, innovative design. Certus offers an intense massage for people up to 6’9″ tall / 285 pounds.

A Certus chair resembles a Novo chair, but is manufactured in a completely different factory. Other than the excellent massage, there is no noticeable difference in its features. Airbags and rollers work together to provide a comfortable and firm massage while sitting in it.

With the OHCO M.8, you can enjoy sleek design, innovative technology, and functional features with the latest bells and whistles. This machine mimics the precise movements of a shiatsu master for tension and stress relief. It features a Sens8 4D engine, full body stretching, heat zones that control feet, palms, backs, and seats separately, neck pillow rollers, thera-elliptical kneading calf airbags, aromatherapy, an AIR IONIZER, and Bluetooth connectivity. CES Innovation Award was one of several awards received. Among the three models, M.8 would be the best option.

Human Touch Super Novo

See Price

Among Human Touch’s most popular products is the Super Novo, which has recently become the company’s best-selling chair. Several new models were introduced to the market recently, including the Certus and the Quies.
Certus chairs look similar to Novo chairs but are manufactured in a completely different facility. Aside from its excellent massage, there are no noticeable differences in its feature set. It delivered a comfortable and firm massage when I sat in it with its airbags and rollers working together.
With 11 auto programs, mechanical foot rollers, and 48 airbags, it’s a 3D L-track chair.  Stretching is a wonderful experience, largely due to the use of shoulder airbags in conjunction with the reclining position and rollers. Altec Lansing speakers are also included, which its predecessors first introduced in their models. Arguably the best speakers in the massage chair industry.

This is the first chair made by OHCO with side arm panels that swing open for easy entry into the chair. A modified 3D L-track is also available, as well as calf and foot rollers, approach lighting, neck pillow rollers, and calf and foot rollers. In comparison to Certus, the OHCO M.8 has more Auto Programs. While Certus doesn’t have calf rollers, neck/head airbags or waist airbags, the M.8 does. Four back rollers are included in both models. Human Touch Certus has a one-year in-home warranty period, while OHCO offers a three-year one.

“The decision to purchase this chair was tough. There are cheaper chairs available, but this one is well worth the extra cash. Happy with my purchase!”

Frequently Asked Questions

It is possible to set a timer for up to 30 minutes.

When Does the Certus Start the Body Scan?

To ensure maximum effectiveness, the massage mechanism scans your back after selecting an auto massage program.

Final Thoughts

As a result of regular massage, muscles become more oxygen-rich, thereby improving their ability to recover from strenuous workouts. With the Certus, you will be able to improve your physical mobility and minimize recovery time.

Despite its massive size, the M.8 massage chair is absolutely gorgeous. A Japanese-manufactured massage chair should provide top-notch craftsmanship. With synthetic leather, you don’t have to worry about maintaining it like you would with real leather. It has a luxurious look like a Bentley or Rolls Royce, with crosshatch stitching on the seat and back. The 364-pound weight of this massage chair makes it one of the heaviest we’ve seen.

The Human Touch Certus Massage Chair is an excellent investment in your well-being and overall health too. With its unique S- and L-track systems, auto wellness programs, Flex 3D massage technology, full-body stretch, cloud touch acupressure, dual lumbar and calf heat, zero gravity seating, space-saving design, and Altec Lansing Premium Sound System, you can be sure that your investment in the Human Touch Certus Massage Chair is a wise one. If you are looking for a massage chair that offers superior performance and convenience, then OHCO M.8 is the better choice in the market.
