My Personal Experience Using Positive Posture Brio Plus Massage Chair

As an expert in the massage chair industry, I have extensive experience with the Positive Posture Brio Plus Massage Chair. This chair takes the already great Brio and brings it to the next level. With additional features, redesigned back rollers, and enhanced choreography, this massage chair provides a full-body massage from head to toe that delivers soothing relief to areas ignored by other massage chairs.

One of the things that set the Brio Plus apart is the ten expertly designed massage sessions and hundreds of manual massage combinations that allow for customized relief. Whether you want a Shiatsu, deep tissue, or another type of massage, this chair has you covered. It also targets specific areas such as the lower back and hips, arms and hands, neck and shoulders, and feet and legs.

These features offer various health benefits, such as reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, easing aches and pains, boosting the immune system, and improving posture. Additionally, the chair adapts its depth of massage constantly during each programmed session, ensuring a comfortable and personalized experience.

One of my favorite things about the Brio Plus is its refined massage choreography. Carefully created by the development team at Positive Posture, it is designed to soothe your body and transport your mind to a comfortable and peaceful place. Another feature I appreciate is the heated rollers that provide a “hot stone” sensation, melting away tension and increasing circulation.

The Brio Plus also offers a USB charging port and diamond stitch upholstery that adds style and elegance to the chair. The automatic reclining function allows for a comfortable recline angle, while the True Zero Gravity position improves blood circulation and breathability, and alleviates pressure on the joints and spine. The automatic body scan ensures that the massage is tailored to your body type, while the infrared heat delivers relaxing heat in the lower back, calves, and feet.

Finally, the Brio Plus offers full-body air massage through air compression movements that rejuvenate fatigued extremities. The massage covers the fingertips through shoulders, and hips down to feet, embracing sore arms, and reinvigorating tired legs.

Overall, the Positive Posture Brio Plus Massage Chair is an exceptional product that offers numerous health benefits, customizable massage options, and a luxurious experience. Whether you’re looking to relax after a long day or address specific areas of pain or discomfort, this massage chair is a worthwhile investment.

Compared to Other Chairs

The main competitor IT-8500 Plus has the highest price tag, while the Brio Plus is a bit cheaper, Osaki OS-Pro 3D Admiral is the most affordable massage chair in this mid-price segment of the market.

Infinity IT-8500 Plus

See Price
The Infinity IT-8500 Plus Massage Chair features Bluetooth connectivity, which the Positive Posture Brio+ does not have. The IT-8500 Plus does not offer 3D/4D roller intensity control like the Brio+, which offers this feature to customize massage settings. Additionally, the IT-8500 Plus has waist airbags, which the Brio+ does not offer. The Positive Posture Brio+ has an in-home warranty service period of 3 years, while the IT-8500 Plus only provides a 1-year warranty. Lastly, the IT-8500 Plus features 38 airbags/aircells for full body massage coverage compared to 56 on the Brio+, while the IT-8500 Plus does not offer an L-track massage. In conclusion, the Infinity IT-8500 Plus Massage Chair and Positive Posture Brio+ Massage Chair both have features that can help provide a comfortable, relaxing massage experience.

Osaki OS-Pro 3D Admiral

See Price
The Osaki OS-Pro 3D Admiral massage chair is not a space saver model like the Positive Posture Brio Plus. While the Brio Plus is designed to be compact and fit into small spaces, the Admiral has a larger footprint due to its more complicated design. The Admiral also boasts 26 airbags versus the 56 airbags of the Brio Plus, giving it more powerful massage options. The Admiral also has a shorter In-Home Warranty Service Period of only 1 year compared to the 3 years of the Brio Plus. While both chairs offer excellent massage capabilities, it is clear that the Osaki OS-Pro 3D Admiral is designed for those looking for a more complex and powerful massage experience, while the Positive Posture Brio Plus is good for those who need a compact and space-saving model.

Positive Posture Brio Plus Massage Chair Notable Benefits & Features

Zero Gravity Positioning

With its true zero gravity positioning, the Positive Posture Brio+ alleviates low back pressure by distributing your body weight evenly so that the pressure put on your spinal joints by your body weight is never too great.

Diamond Stitch Upholstery

A luxurious diamond stitching adds a luxurious look to the Brio+ Massage Chair. Its back upholstery can be removed if you prefer a deeper massage.

Intelligent Touch Foot Rollers

Foot rollers are attached to the Positive Posture Brio+ massage chair to prevent overstimulation of the feet. The foot rollers can be used either on their own or in conjunction with other massage sessions.



Its unique wall-hugging technology allows it to fit almost anywhere, requiring only 4 inches (10 cm) between the backrest and wall.

10 Auto Programs

Besides the Brio+’s numerous massage programming options, it also comes with manual settings, so if you want something more localized or specific, you can use them.

Acupressure Point Locator

Using a body scan program, the Positive Posture Brio+ massage chair locates acupressure points and customizes each massage.

3D/4D Roller Massage

The Positive Posture Brio+’s L-track roller system can be adjusted in depth and intensity, as well as in speed/rhythm. Just lower the roller depth if you have a sensitive back to get a gentle massage. You can also increase the roller depth if you want something more intense to really penetrate your spinal muscles.

Positive Posture Brio Plus Modifications and Differences

Positive Posture Brio Massage Chair

The Positive Posture massage chair goes beyond just providing relief, as it takes a holistic approach to well-being and health. With years of research and a keen eye for detail, the Brio Massage Chair is only one of many elegant products it produces. For an unbiased evaluation, I would still like to carefully measure each feature.

  • 4D and L-track massage system: The Brio packs too many features into its design but still makes them all work together in perfect sync. To start with, there is the advanced 4D massage system that protrudes the chair up to 3.5 inches against your body for deep tissue relaxation. In addition, I was amazed by its new Soft Motion technology, which is based on traditional Chinese massage techniques and focuses on localized massages. As a further enhancement to this intelligent technology, the L-track massage system maps all of the pressure points of your body and applies traditional massage styles to them, closely mimicking the hands of a professional masseur.
  • Acupressure point locator scanner: Positive Posture has replaced its computer body scan system. It’s important to note that when you hit your acupoints correctly, they work wonders on muscle knots and boost circulation, for those who don’t know what acupoints are. As well as reducing instant pain, hitting acupoints gives you extreme energy.
  • Positive Posture’s advanced rollers: and adequate heat, as well as its 10 different auto-massage programs, I completely forgot about my back pain in no time.

The zero-gravity seating holds it all together! Positive Posture makes a difference even here by reclining your legs to about 80 degrees with its adjustable footrest raise. Apart from that, the flat posture or weightless, astronaut-like posture ensures a stable recline of 157 degrees.

Positive Posture Brio Sport Massage Chair

One of the best benefits of the Brio sport over the other models is that the massage intensity is capable of being much more intense as well as much more precise. In order to accomplish this, it uses a completely different mechanism. It is common for 3D massage systems to push a roller outward into your back. So what gets the roller pushed out?

An airbag inflates to push it into your back. The airbag is still a little soft because it’s an airbag. As opposed to the Brio Sport, which uses what they call a mechanical 3D. As a result, the roller has less softness, and when it pushes out, it does so firmly.

  • Deep Tissue Massage: The rollers allow a much more precise intensity, which is ideal if you want a deep tissue massage.
  • Design and Build: Brio Sport also has the advantage of being more reliable and durable over time than both Brio+ and original Brio, so it’s just built from the ground up. Because that’s what the Brio Sport was designed for, it’s used in gyms and commercial settings. The Brio Sport is the clear choice if you want a chair that is reliable, capable of both strong and gentle massage, and designed with fitness & active lifestyle in mind.
  • Manual massage: It has about 500 different combinations of massage so that everyone will find a setting that feels right for them at that particular time, based on how they’re feeling at that moment.
  • Massage Intensity: It is one of the best advantages of the Brio sport over other models that the massage intensity is much more intense as well as much more precise. It works by using a completely different mechanism. A typical 3D massage system pushes the roller outward into your back, but how does it get pushed out? An airbag inflates to push the roller into your back. However, because it is an airbag, it is still quite soft. A mechanical 3D is used on the Brio Sport, so the roller is less soft and pushes out firmly when it wants to push.

Last but not least, the Brio Sport has been designed from the ground up to be more reliable and to last for a longer period of time than both the Brio+ and the original Brio. Due to its specific purpose, the Brio Sport is used in gyms and in commercial settings. 

Positive Posture Brio Plus Warranty

3-Year Limited Warranty WITH ON-SITE SERVICE. In our experience, Positive Posture offers great service coverage everywhere in the USA and in Canada to homes located in or near cities. A 2-Year extension can be attached to the normal 3-year manufacturer warranty.

What Do Users Say About Positive Posture Brio Plus Massage Chair?

“Buying this for my wife who has a repetitive motion job that causes her muscles and joints to ache often. I bought it for her for my wife’s aching muscles and stiff joints. She uses it three times every evening and feels totally refreshed afterward. In the first month, we experimented and tried all the modes, but it will take a while so you can then just sit down in the chair and select the mode that works best for you. Because many of the preset modes are quite similar, I found it difficult to distinguish between them sometimes. My wife likes the pre-programmed modes, but I prefer the manual mode, which allows me to choose which massage mode I want with the roller and which airbags to emphasize. My wife used to need to go to the chiropractor every 4-5 weeks, but since we got this chair, she hasn’t been back. It has been a great investment. The piece of furniture is large, so make sure you have space for it to recline fully.”

“I developed lower back problems as an officer worker because I sat all day. It has been about a decade now that I have been getting regular massages and paying $100 plus tip. My friend bought a massage chair and told me about its benefits, so I did my research and discovered this amazing product. After using it for 6 months, I can’t imagine my life without it. I’m so glad I got it!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Who This Chair is For?

Especially if you want a lightweight space-saving 4D chair with an acupressure point locator for a more precise full-body massage, and a good warranty as well as premium upholstery.

What are the Differences between the Brio & Brio+?

On the Brio+, the stitching has been updated. The roller size has changed for the Brio+, and the roller choreography has been changed. Brio+ has more deep tissue massage, still medium to soft, but a firmer massage. Brio+ has heated rollers. Brio+ has a USB charging port. Two pockets are on the Brio+, one for a remote control and one for a cell phone.

Which Chair Massages Deeper, the Brio+ or Brio Sport?

As compared to the original Brio, the Brio Sport has a stronger & deeper tissue massage, while the Brio+ has a medium/soft massage.

Final Thoughts

Additionally, the Brio+ has a new diamond pattern on the back pad. So, the chair looks newer and better, and the engineering and product reliability is also improved, so the chair will last you for a long time. As a result, the chair has been designed to last you much longer. Therefore, it uses improved engineering techniques to make it more reliable and durable.

The Brio+ also has a much better ability than its competitors to fit larger bodies when it comes to calf and foot massage. The calf and foot massage would be much more comfortable with the Brio+ for those who are taller and have broad shoulders and a wider body. Although the original Brio was a little tight. Users who are a little bit bigger and taller may find the airbags for the calf and foot massage too intense when they compress.
