My Personal Experience Using Katana 700 Massage Chair

As someone with extensive experience in the massage chair industry, I can confidently say that the Katana 700 Massage Chair is a remarkable product that offers an excellent full-body massage experience. Designed to provide daily relief from stress and tension, this shiatsu massage chair is the perfect tool to help you rediscover comfort, support good health, and bring you the peace and happiness that comes with getting away from it all.

One of the most impressive features of the Katana 700 is its full-body air compression techniques, which use 34 air cells to apply gentle squeeze and release massage to your fingers, hands, forearms, shoulders, calves, and feet. This not only promotes lymphatic flow but also stimulates your body’s natural healing action. The repeated cycles of compression and release help refresh tired muscles, encourage lymphatic flow, and bring healing oxygenated blood to the area being worked on.

In addition to air compression techniques, the Katana 700 also boasts a Shiatsu Sensei Massage Mechanism that carefully crafted movements deliver soothing shiatsu massage to the neck and shoulders, low back, glutes, and hamstrings. This is complemented by the chair’s L-Track design, which guides the back massage mechanism to cover your full back from your neck and shoulders all the way down to your glutes and hamstrings, delivering broad coverage of your whole body.

Another standout feature of the Katana 700 is its Zero-Gravity function, which provides a deep recline that elevates your legs above your heart for maximum therapy to your lower extremities. By entering the zero-gravity position, you can release the stress and strain on the vertebrae of your low back and give your whole body a vacation in zero gravity.

The Katana 700 also comes with a range of top features, including a simple set-up with no tools required, an auto-shoulder detection function that automatically customizes the massage to fit your unique back profile, a foot roller that provides amazing relief to the soles of your feet, an extending legrest that effortlessly adjusts to fit users from 5’-0” to 6’-2”, and a Bluetooth stereo audio system that allows you to connect your smart device and enjoy your favorite music.

With eight carefully crafted massage programs, including Recover, Relief, Stretch, Low Back, Renew, Calming, Neck Region, and Energy, the Katana 700 is designed to deliver results that you will feel in your body. The chair’s penetrating infrared heat is also worth noting, as it helps to loosen muscles and encourage blood flow into the lumbar area of your back, allowing you to sink even further into the massages.

In summary, the Katana 700 Massage Chair is an outstanding product that offers an exceptional massage experience at a remarkably affordable price. Whether you’re looking to relieve stress, ease tension, or simply relax, this chair has everything you need to achieve a deep sense of comfort and well-being.

What Makes Katana 700 Massage Chair Stand Out from the Competition?

The Katana 700 massage chair stands out from the competition with its unique features such as its L-Track which provides a massage from the neck to the glutes, Zero Gravity, Shiatsu Sensei Massage Mechanism which delivers soothing shiatsu massage to the neck and shoulders, low back, glutes, and hamstrings. It also has a Foot Roller, Extending Legrest, Penetrating Infrared Heat, and a Bluetooth Stereo Audio System.

Compared to Other Chairs

A Katana 700 has an L-Track design, as opposed to OSAKI OS-4000T which is the main competitor. In contrast to its main competitors in the budget segment Inner Balance Wellness Jin 2.0 and OS-4000 models, Katana 700 uses a Shiatsu Sensei Massage Mechanism, which delivers soothing shiatsu massage to the neck and shoulders, low back, glutes, and hamstrings.


See Price
The Katana 700 massage chair offers a variety of advanced features not available on the OSAKI OS-4000T. Most notably, it has Bluetooth Connectivity which allows you to connect to your mobile devices and stream music, videos, or other media during your massage session. Moreover, it offers a much stronger massage with 43 Massage Stroke Length compared to the OSAKI OS-4000T’s 30 Massage Stroke Length. All these features make the Katana 700 a superior choice for those looking for an advanced and comfortable massage chair experience. Furthermore, Katana
700 comes with an additional Cooling Air Massage system to give you a more calming and relaxing massage. With all these features, the Katana 700 is certainly a great budget-friendly model for anyone wanting a luxurious massage chair experience.

What Do Users Say About Katana 700 Massage Chair?

“I like that you can adjust the airbag pressure, speed, and squeeze. My shoulders are always sore, so it pushes a little hard there, but that’s the only thing I don’t like about it.”

“Aside from the quality of the chair and the massage features: rollers, airbags, foot massage, heated lower back, and Bluetooth, I am very impressed with it. Despite the fact that this chair has a lot of potential, it can be difficult to unlock its full potential because of the controller and its programs. First, the controller buttons are difficult to see without bright lights—which is not usually the lighting situation for a massage. The lack of a touchscreen saved money, but it makes it difficult to operate. In addition, the preset massage programs do not seem to be as accurate as they seem to be. For example, the lower back program seems to have the best effect on the neck. Additionally, the chair has frustratingly limited manual controls. In addition to being clunky and non-intuitive to operate, the manual programs don’t even provide the range you know the chair has. The rollers can’t be manually adjusted to go as high on your neck or as low on your glutes as the preset programs. There is no phone app for this chair that would allow you to access and program all its functions.”
