Written by Atique Ur Rehman

After you started working, you was always overwhelmed by the complicated daily tasks. The muscle strain caused by sitting for a long time and sitting at the desk for a long time accumulated day by day, and everyone desire to buy a massage chair was also growing.

But in the final analysis it is just a cushion, barely able to hold Shoulders and backs do not have the effect of sitting on a massage chair to lie flat and relax the whole body, so since deciding to slightly renovate the living room last year.

Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair

Analysis of purchasing ideas


Pick big names.Real Relax, iRest, Osaki, Novo, etc. are relatively mature and well-known big brands with many product lines. It is recommended to try them in offline stores and make a decision after confirming the model. Among them, you should be able to buy the more reliable mass-produced models with a budget of about 1w. Generally, the prices at this price are relatively cost-effective. It is recommended to buy a massage for the first time.


Divided into 1D, 2D, 3D. Now the mainstream and mid-range price models are mainly 3D movement. I also recommend that you try to increase your budget a little bit and choose a massage chair with 3D movement. Of course, there is more than one kind of 3D core. In addition to the most common elastic core, there are also airbag cores, gear cores, etc., so pay attention to distinguishing them when purchasing.

If there is no special requirement and you want to pursue cost performance, we can choose elastic movement, and if you have higher requirements for strength, you can choose airbag movement or gear movement.In the category of massage chairs, the “movement” may be different from our general perception.

In addition, we also need to pay attention to the material of the movement. The material of the movement will affect the accuracy and stability of the massage. It is roughly stainless steel movement > fine steel + plastic movement > plastic movement.


The frame supports the massage chair, and generally includes the base and back frame. Its material and craftsmanship determine the durability and safety of the massage chair. This is generally not stated on the product details page, and we usually need to ask customer service for inquiries. To put it simply, the heavier the frame, the better. We can also judge whether the massage chair is tricky according to the weight of the whole machine. If the overall weight is much lighter than similar products, the product may use a wooden frame, which has certain risks and is not recommended for purchase.

Air bag

The more air cells, the wider the coverage, and the larger the area, the better. Current massage chairs are generally equipped with airbag components for auxiliary massage. When purchasing, we can check whether its airbags cover enough positions, and whether there are airbags placed where we need them most.

Guide Rail

Pay attention to the type and length of the guide rail, SL guide rail is preferred. The length does not need to be as long as possible. You can choose it according to your body shape. Generally, about 125cm is enough for Asians.

With a budget of $7000+, my choice is Human Touch NOVO XT2 Massage Chair

Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair has four color schemes. After hesitating, I chose the more versatile black.

I am quite satisfied with the appearance of the Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair. The black color is indeed suitable for various environments, and there is basically no sense of disobedience when placed at home. It uses the appearance design of black shell + gray PU leather pad.

The cushion is attached to the body of the massage chair through zippers and Velcro. The PU leather material is delicate and solid, and the quality is quite good. It feels soft, comfortable and skin-friendly, without a strong peculiar smell, and can be used directly.

The shell is made of the same black paint as a piano. The overall look is very calm and low-key . Fortunately, it is also easy to clean, just wipe it away .The  finish of black is not particularly photogenic, but the real thing is quite good-looking, full of sense of luxury

As we mentioned earlier, the larger the airbags of the massage chair, the better, and the more the airbags can be. Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair have large number of airbags, covering multiple positions such as shoulders, waist, hands, legs, and feet. At the same time, the waist and legs are also built with graphene materials, and the hot compress function is turned on after sitting on it. With the deep massage of airbags and robotic hands.

Foot airbags are well received!

At the same time, 4 airbags are added to the waist. While pushing the top and pressing the psoas muscles, it can also turn on the hot compress function, which is closer to the waist, and the comfort is full.

Lumbar airbags are also well received!

In terms of guide rail selection, Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair adopts the brand’s third-generation SL guide rail, which can cover the neck, shoulders, back, waist, buttocks, and legs, and fits closely to the curve of the back without any hanging experience.

At the same time, the foot also adopts a “stretchable” design to meet the needs of people of various heights. (It’s enough for my two dwarfs to use, and it won’t hang in the air)

In addition to the key “featured function” pain detection, we can also see a lot of built-in customized programs: including revitalizing star travel, men’s fitness, queen’s body, elderly health care, shoulder and neck focus, waist and hip care, Thai style Stretching, rocking to sleep, etc. In addition, there are 4 sets of new programs unique to Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair sedentary office, watching drama and relaxing, sportsman and yoga shaping. One button can help us adjust to the best angle and scene, very convenient.

Watching TV while massaging is simply not too cool!

Its body shape is 1510*750*1120mm in the upright state, and 1770*750*820mm when it is fully unfolded. The body weight reaches 129kg. It is relatively large and heavy. We need to ensure that there is enough space when entering the house.

There are small wheels at the bottom of the fuselage that can be used for auxiliary movement. Generally, small movements with the help of wheels will not be too strenuous.

Experience feedback

In the past, there was always a stereotype of a massage chair—it was a machine, and although the massage position was controllable but not adjustable, it was difficult to make adaptive adjustments for different people and different body types, and could only move bluntly. After the whole massage experience, I always feel that although the muscles are indeed relaxed, the desired effect cannot be achieved, not to mention the experience that is “comparable to manual massage” in many promotions.

In our inherent impression, machines are never comparable to “manual massage”

But now with the advancement of science and technology, many massage chairs begin to pay attention to their “adaptive adjustment” ability. More precise and more powerful massage effect. Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair adopts the black technology of “ten-second chip”, which can quickly respond and perform 10-second segmental scanning after starting up, accurately locate and calculate the force, which can greatly improve the user experience and enjoy a more suitable experience. A more comfortable massage experience for yourself.

Every time you sit on the massage chair, it will do a body shape test, and perform segmented checks on important parts such as shoulders, neck, back, waist and hips according to body shape and weight.

The manipulator can also accurately press the muscles of various parts, and the strength is well grasped, without excessive pain or lack of strength, very gentle and comfortable.

Featured Project – Pain Detection

Then there is the “featured item” of Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair the pain detection function. A few years ago, this function was only available in high-end models with tens of thousands of dollars. Now you can experience it in Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair, which can be said to be very worthwhile~

When using the soreness detection function, it will remind us to put our palms close to the sensor, do a body shape detection and “light press”, the whole process lasts about 1 and a half minutes, which can help Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair help us detect pain through bioelectricity The pain location and degree on the body, and more targeted adjustments to the location, intensity and time.

This is the soreness detection sensor. When using it, we must put our palms on the sensor and stick it tightly

After the detection is completed. You can see that the waist of the female ticket is mildly sore, and the system will adjust the plan according to the detection results—this time the massage will focus on waist relief. .

When massaging outside, the massage technician usually adjusts the strength and position according to our requirements and feedback. Now the Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair can also obtain the same experience through sore detection, which can be said to be very humane ~ and this is also I think it’s an important factor!

During the whole massage process, Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair will knead, beat, and press our whole body through the collaborative work of 3D manipulators and airbags, working in an orderly manner from top to bottom.

While the neck manipulator is kneading, tapping and massaging, the shoulder airbags on the side will continue to apply pressure, and the cycle of tightening and relaxing will continue. Long-term tight shoulders can get Very nice to relax.

The pressure of the airbag is very good

The airbag on the arm can cover the entire forearm. When the airbag is inflated, the entire arm can feel the simulated “kneading feeling”, and even the fingers can feel obvious pressure, which is very strong.

At the same time, the manipulator will increase the strength and spend more time on the waist and abdomen that need to be focused on. With the blessing of the 3D air-sensing manipulator, there will be no “falling feeling” on the waist, and you can really feel the pressure, the strength is very good, and the soothing effect is also very good.

The old waist that has been working at the desk for a long time even makes a creaking sound… After 20 minutes of massage, I can obviously feel that the tight muscles in the waist have been relaxed, and there is a feeling of “pressing open” ~ I don’t want it It’s so comfortable, I really want to press it for another 15 minutes~

During the period after the Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair, female tickets are most often used, and their favorite function is sore detection~ Every time you sit on the massage chair and “don’t want to think about anything”, you can rest assured to massage Leave the decision to it, do a full-body scan and detection, and solve the problem for you according to the degree of strain, which is very worry-free.

A must for working workers – sedentary office mode

Among the built-in programs, my favorite and most commonly used should be this customized function for our sedentary people…

This function pays more attention to the massage of shoulders, back, waist and legs.

Neck And Shoulder Massage

Taking the shoulder and neck massage of this program as an example, you can see that the Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair kneads the shoulders very well. It is a boon for office workers like me who have tight shoulders and necks all the year round. The function of “deep massage” can be flexibly stretched and adjusted according to the body parts. For key sore parts like the shoulder, the mechanical arm can be pushed forward for deep massage, reaching the sore fascia layer.

Model Features

In this mode, we will still be in a “lying flat” state. In the 0-gravity state, our whole body can be better relaxed, and the pressure on the lumbar spine is also smaller, which is conducive to the massage.

It goes without saying that long-term sitting puts pressure on the lumbar spine. Under this program, you can more clearly feel that the center of gravity of its massage will be concentrated on the waist, and the airbags and robotic hands work together. The range of body ups and downs is obviously larger than that of mild strain, and you can feel a stronger and higher intensity massage.

During the massage process, the model still told me that the waist is not easy to shift during the massage process. When the manipulator is massaging, the airbag will be used as a fixed assistance, so that every kneading and tapping can fall on the waist and abdomen muscles. It’s efficient~

When using the program, I often also turn on the graphene heating function on the waist and legs. The temperature rise of graphene is relatively “moderate”, and the temperature will gradually rise during the massage, and the temperature will probably  maintained .Under the continuous “hot compress” massage, the relaxing and soothing effect on the waist and legs can be further improved, and the feeling of sweating a little after pressing is not so great.

The graphene with hot compress function is concentrated on the legs, waist and abdomen. Female friends can also try to turn on this function during menstruation

In addition to sedentary office, Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair also has 10 different custom programs for us to experience and try in different scenarios, so I won’t introduce them one by one here~

Of course, if you are looking for a more detailed massage, Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair also has advanced customization options, and we can try a more precise massage through the “Advanced Mode”. Not only can you choose the massage method, but you can also customize the airbag and adjust the position of the movement.

With the support of 3D airbag manipulator, Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair also presents various massage techniques. The basic techniques are: kneading, beating, and shiatsu. According to different strengths and methods, there can be more than 10 combinations of manipulations at most, combined with air pressure massage and fine-tuning of the movement position, the possibilities are even more~

Experience beyond massage

The massage chairs operated by remote control.At this time, we can call out the voice control system ,so that we can lie down and enjoy the massage by moving our mouth.

Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair also provides APP operation. It is also a very convenient choice to use the mobile APP  to operate. It has basic functions and users can choose according to their needs and habits.

In addition, the symmetrical surround sound experience mentioned in the unboxing is also very good. Playing music while enjoying a massage has always been a very enjoyable moment for me, but I used to wear headphones. Now you can play music even when you take off the earphones, and the sound quality is better than I expected, so don’t be too comfortable~

What massage chair would you choose with a budget $1000

If the budget is low I will sincerely recommend the Real Relax Massage Chair. This massage chair can be said to be the most worthwhile consumption .

Thanks to the excellent hardware configuration, the Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair massage relaxation effect is also very good. And its unique pain detection function is really hard to get tired of. I don’t need to elaborate, it is really amazing that it can understand my feeling. I believe everyone is already gearing up for the “chopping hands”.

Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair is now participating in the event, free maintenance and smart eye protection, and other benefits, and can also enjoy the privilege of priority delivery.
