My Personal Experience Using Kahuna HANI Massage Chair

As a massage chair industry expert, I’ve had extensive experience with various models and designs, and I must say that the Kahuna Hani Massage Chair stands out in its convenient and compact design. This luxury living room massage chair with an ottoman is equipped with an impressive L-track massage system that is designed to ease away all your aches and pains.

One of the key features of this chair is the 3D massage system that is able to deliver a deep tissue massage that is realistic and high-end. The massage rollers are able to push outward for a deep massage and withdraw for a gentler one. The maximum depth is 3.2” and up to 13.4” in width, which is able to massage your spine vertebra deeply & effectively to enhance the acupressure massage therapy.

Another feature that complements the massage system is the heat therapy that helps to loosen your muscles and make them more susceptible to massage rollers. The compact concept of the massage sofa is inspired by the space-saving and healthier lifestyles that people are looking for. It is created with an ergonomically welcoming style and an outstanding streamlined design that makes your home interior more contemporary and stylish.

The Kahuna Hani Massage Chair comes with automatic massage programs based on Shiatsu therapy to give users a full massage experience. It has a modern and ergonomic design that is fashionable and modern with a luxurious leather blend. The massage sofa is created with international materials like PU leather, which is wear-resistant and breathable. The core structure of this product is finished with high-end solid steel, which is an extra 50% more durable than normal steel material.

The chair has a Comfort C-Curve Headrest that is specially designed according to the curve line between our head and neck. The C-Curve headrest offers superior comfort and provides the proper ergonomic support while you are reading, watching TV, gaming, and even internet surfing.

Compared to Other Chairs

No matter what brand you buy, massage chairs can differ greatly. They will use massage technology differently in terms of quality and effectiveness. Despite this, massage chairs should meet a set of consistent standards. For these chairs to be truly comfortable, they must provide a variety of massages at the same time. 

Unlike similar chairs, the head pillow can be flipped back so you receive a deep-tissue neck massage. You can use it as a chair or enjoy a massage with its wireless remote. When you recline into a zero gravity position, you will be able to relax your muscles and relieve muscle tension. By relieving pressure from the lower back, blood flow is stimulated and muscle tension is relieved.  While in zero gravity, your lower back will feel rejuvenated thanks to gentle hip compressions and lumbar massage therapy.

Human Touch WholeBody 7.1

The HANI massage chair’s compact design and heating feature make it the perfect massage chair, while the WholeBody 7.1 has an S-track design. Through this relaxation therapy, you will find harmony and peace in your body and soul. It incorporates kneading, shiatsu, and rolling massage techniques. The HANI Comfort C-Curve Headrest ensures supreme comfort. A special design to match the curves of our necks and heads. HANI offers Body Scan technology, whereas WholeBody 7.1 doesn’t.
