Synca CirC+ Massage Chair

Synca Circ+ is inspired by the Shibui style and exudes an air of elegance because of its simplicity and subtlety. A combination of sophistication and simplicity is the hallmark of Japanese design, which is praised by designers all over the world. Synca Circ Plus benefits from it because it has a distinctive aesthetic style that makes it considerably less intimidating than many of its competitors without sacrificing its appeal.

Incorporating Japanese design and engineering into the CirC+, it offers users the option of reclining fully into a “zero gravity” position, bringing wellness to the whole body. By taking pressure off your lower vertebrae, reducing your blood vessel restrictions, and cradling your body so that it is balanced from legs to head, it reduces the impact on your body. During reclining, a sensor at the back of the chair actively detects objects or pets and will stop the machine if the obstruction is detected, thereby keeping your loved ones safe.

What Makes Synca CirC+ Massage Chair Stand Out from the Competition?

The Synca CirC+ massage chair stands out from its competition due to its ultra-long 45.5” L-Track that allows for extensive coverage when giving a massage. It also features a quad roller technology that provides a superior massage experience. Additionally, it has a compact design that works great for smaller spaces.

My Personal Experience Using Synca CirC+ Massage Chair

As someone who has been in the massage chair industry for many years, I have had the pleasure of trying out many different chairs. However, the Synca CirC+ Massage Chair has truly stood out to me. From its elegant Japanese “Shibui” design to its full-size massage robot hidden within the chair, the CirC+ is truly an experience in itself.

One of the most impressive features of this chair is the Zero Gravity cradle, which allows you to find a neutral posture position that supports your body at precise angles. This not only feels good but also reduces pressure on the lower vertebrae and blood vessels.

Plus, the CirC+ only requires under 6 inches of space behind the chair when fully reclined, so you can place it anywhere in your home without worrying about it hitting the wall.

With a 45.5-inch long rail SL Track massage system, the CirC+ provides deeper massage and more coverage than most other chairs on the market. Its quad roller technology utilizes four massage hands, delivering superior coverage and a more therapeutic massage than reduced performance systems found in similar chairs.

The CirC+ offers pre-programmed courses, including Energize, Relax, and Sleep, as well as Focused Relief courses for specific areas of the body. The wireless remote control is easy to use, and the heat therapy delivered to the lower back and back of the legs adds a soothing touch to your massage experience.

Finally, the CirC+ is easy to move, with tilt and roll features, and it even has a movement detection sensor embedded in the back of the chair to keep your loved ones safe. Overall, the Synca CirC+ Massage Chair is a beautifully designed and expertly crafted chair that provides an unparalleled massage experience.

Compared to Other Chairs

Regardless of what brand you buy, massage chairs can differ in many ways. They will use massage technology differently in terms of quality and effectiveness. In spite of this, massage chairs should meet a consistent set of standards. In order for these chairs to deliver maximum comfort, they must excel at delivering a variety of massages. 

In contrast to similar chairs, you can experience a deep tissue neck massage by flipping the head pillow back. With its wireless remote, you can enjoy a massage while relaxing, or just use it as a chair. You can recline into the zero gravity position to relax your muscles and relieve muscle tension. It relieves pressure from the lower back, which helps relieve muscle tension and stimulates blood flow.  As a result of gentle hip compressions and lumbar massage therapy, your lower back will feel rejuvenated while in zero gravity.

Synca CirC+ features Zero Gravity, whereas the Kahuna Hani massage Chair does not. Synca Wellness CirC+ offers 5 Year Limited Warranty and only 1 year has HANI. Both models have Body Scan Technology. These models don’t have a Chromotherapy function. HANI offers a c-curve headrest that provides superior comfort and ergonomic support while reading, watching TV, playing games, and even surfing the internet.
Synca CirC+ massage chairs use Quad Roller Technology to provide comprehensive coverage while providing a superior massage. Basically, four hands massage your back simultaneously to provide a truly superior massage experience. With Hani’s enhanced massage technology, you can enjoy realistic and high-end 3D massage rollers.

Synca CirC+ Massage Chair Notable Benefits & Features


When fully reclined, the Synca CirC+ massage chair takes up only six inches of space behind the chair. As a result, it can be placed anywhere in your house without hitting walls.

44″ SL-Track

With its 44″ SL-Track roller, the Synca Wellness CirC+ massages the spine from the neck and shoulders all the way to the bottom and follows the spine curvature. In Japanese chairs, SL-Track is usually not available due to the focus being on providing the best deep-tissue massage experience to the upper body, neck, and shoulders.

Quad Roller Technology

With Quad Roller Technology, the Synca CirC+ massage chair covers all areas of your body when it massages. As a result, you receive a superior massage with 4 hands simultaneously kneading your back. And to make things even better, these rollers go all the way from your shoulders down to your glutes so you get the full-body pampering you deserve.

Neck and Shoulder Massage

By flipping the head pillow back, you will get a deep tissue neck massage that helps melt away stress and tension.

Movement Detection Sensor

It is possible to install a sensor embedded in the back of the chair that could detect and halt the recline of the chair even if you forget to check it.

Effective Pre-programmed Modes

A total of eight pre-programmed massages come with the Synca Circ Plus massage chair. Three of the massages are for the whole body, while five of them focus on specific areas of the body. The first mode is Energize, which works out firm knots with a deep-tissue massage.

Integrated Heat Therapy

A chilly winter day can be soothed with the soothing warmth of the Synca Circ Plus chair massager, featuring heat pads in the lumbar and calf areas.

Synca CirC+ Modifications and Differences

Synca CirC Massage Chair


With Synca CirC, a compact massage chair that is ergonomically correct, you will feel comfortable and secure. CirC massage chairs are designed to make you feel comfortable so you won’t want to leave them. Taping and kneading are excellent massage techniques provided by this compact massage chair.

By creating a subtle left and right movement, you can loosen up the muscles near your spine and relieve back pain. Your whole body can be massaged with the Synca CirC chair, or a specific area can be targeted. The L-track massage directly affects your shoulder, upper thigh, and groin areas.

Most Notable Features:

  • SL TrackLumbar
  • Heat Compression Massage
  • Easy-to-use Controller
  • Award Winning Design
  • Advanced Hip Therapy
  • Extra Cushion for Comfort & to Adjust Massage Strength
  • Manual Controls
  • Ambient Lighting
  • 5 Auto-courses

There is usually a stop at the lower back in a standard massage track. You will receive a precise, gentle massage with a 34″ massage track that targets your trapezius, hamstring, and lower back. CirC uses whisper-quiet air cell technology for a precise, gentle massage. CirC uses intelligent massage hands that mimic the techniques of massage therapists.

Should You Buy The Synca CirC Or CirC Plus Massage Chair?

It’s a tough one to answer. You’re getting a superior chair – one that has a longer roller track, a more intuitive user interface, and the big one – recline capabilities.

All of these are worth the extra money CirC Plus costs.

Although it’s subjective, I personally think it’s just on the edge of being expensive. While it’s certainly better than the CirC, does that make it a good compact massage chair? After all, the CirC Plus is still a compact massage chair! My final recommendation is:

You should definitely consider the CirC Plus if you’re hell-bent on getting a compact massage chair. Also consider the CirC, since it’s still pretty good and reasonably priced!

It might end up costing a bit more, but they will also have better massage functionality. So if you’re not so much looking for a compact, then you do have many options when it comes to 2D L-Track chairs.

We recommend both the CirC and CirC Plus as excellent chairs, and either will serve you well.

What Do Users Say About Synca CirC+ Massage Chair?

“Everything is included in this chair. There is nothing more comfortable than the zero gravity cradle, and the SL track targets muscles from the neck down to the glutes. As a result of Covid hitting my muscles and joints so hard, I have been able to recover so much faster by using this a couple times a day. There is also a problem with most massage chairs being clunky and huge. Exactly the right size and looks great. It outperforms all other massage chairs on the market and is one of the best Synca products ever made!”
Glen Y.
“In the last few weeks, I was planning on ordering the Circ from my neighbor and I found this new Circ Plus on the site. This chair is very similar to the Circ, but has reclined back and leg heat. The chair is still smaller than most massage chairs, so it doesn’t take up the whole room like some massage chairs. The glute massage and targeted programs seem to be impressive. In spite of covering a lot of body, the chair still looks luxurious and can be tucked away if needed. I HIGHLY recommend it. Also, I’m 6’0″ and approaching 200 pounds. This chair fits me well and I’m extremely comfortable in it. Also, I believe that it is a few inches wider than the other Circ model.”
Frank N.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it Have Calf Vibration?

That is not the case. Calf vibration declined since most users find it tickles and irritates their noses. There are no chairs on the market that look as good as this one and deliver such a deep tissue massage like this one. Massage robots like the one found in this chair are found in chairs costing twice as much.

Where are Synca Massage Chairs Made??

This massage chair was designed by master engineers in Osaka, Japan, and manufactured outside of Tokyo by the same company that invented massage chairs 30 years ago.

Who is Synca?

A worldwide developer and distributor, Synca continues to bring you great products not available from your local dental dealer. In 1986, Synca set out to bring great products to dental offices that weren’t readily available from existing dealers.

Final Thoughts

If you thought it couldn’t get better, the Synca Circ Plus also features strategically placed heating pads. So, whether you just want to curl up and watch TV, or you’re feeling up to a little massage, you’ll feel cozy and comfortable.

In addition to the industry’s latest technology, the Synca Circ+ massage chair includes preprogrammed massage modes. The result is that you don’t have to create a massage course from scratch. You can simply click a few buttons and dive right into a variety of massages right away.

You can actually cycle through the different modes immediately after you take it out of the box and find out which ones you prefer most – an energetic massage, a relaxing one, or perhaps just a gentle prod to put you to sleep. This smart feature makes it easy to get this right even if you’re new to massage chairs.
