For almost all kinds of products, there is an upgraded version. This even includes food products, where a newer version might be healthier than the last or contains more sugar, etc. So this, of course, is the same with massage chairs, where brands are always releasing newer models as new or more advanced technology is introduced.
Almost every year, new models from all kinds of massage chair brands are put up on the market to attract new customers. This is also to encourage old customers to upgrade their older or original version. The Infinity line massage chair is no different and has a recent model that we will review in this article. The name might not have changed much, but the “Plus” certainly brings with it a strong sense of upgrade.
What is There to Know About the Infinity IT-8500 Plus
Taking after its name from the original, the Infinity IT-8500 Plus contains all the features and functions its predecessor has. You can purchase this massage chair at $6,999 or at a discounted rate of $4,999 from Massage Chair Heaven. If you were fond of the original IT-8500, then you will no doubt fall in love with its successor.
An added Waist Twist for a milder alternative
With the original Infinity IT-8500, there’s a function called Spinal Correction. What this does is it extends your spine, as well as decompresses it in order to help alleviate back pain. With the Plus, there is an added function called the Waist Twist. This acts as another option for those with severe back pain and can’t tolerate the extension of their spine. Therefore, the Waist Twist feature is the milder alternative for relieving your back pain.
Airbag Compression Therapy for a more realistic massage
The Infinity IT-8500 Plus massage chair contains airbags that are located in literally all parts of the body that gets massaged. They are found in your shoulders, neck, back, buttocks, arms, legs, and feet. These are intelligently designed so that they can assist in making you feel like a real masseuse is massaging you.
When activated, they inflate or deflate depending on the current massage session since it syncs with its movements. The airbags provide an impressive ability to adapt their intensity levels that mimic an actual massage therapist, hence why it is named "Airbag Compression Therapy."
A zero gravity bonus
When people hear the words “zero gravity,” they typically think of space. If you thought of astronauts, then you’re not far from what the zero-gravity function is all about. In massage chairs, zero gravity refers to a chair that can lean all the way back into a horizontal position. This means that you will practically be lying down on the chair, though still seated.
Whenever you lay down, the weight that your spine is originally under is taken away, thus giving you a feeling of weightlessness. Therefore, you can feel more relaxed in this zero-gravity position while being massaged. Furthermore, your legs will become elevated above your heart, which will improve blood flow in your legs and overall blood circulation in the body.
Bluetooth technology to promote relaxation
If you’re the kind of person that likes to snooze off or zone out while being massaged, then you will definitely enjoy the Plus’ built-in Bluetooth speakers. They are strategically located in the headrest so that you wouldn’t have to worry about the sound volume. Listening to calming or soothing music always leads to increased relaxation, so this is a very appealing feature for the new IT-8500 Plus.
Introducing the four-wheel rollers
The Infinity IT-8500 Plus has a four-wheel roller mechanism that is perfect for providing deep pressure massage strokes. This means that the massage chair can offer satisfying kneading movements for those tough and tight muscles on your back. If you’re particularly a lover of spinal massages or stroking techniques along the spine, then this four-wheel roller mechanism is your new handy tool.
What the Infinity IT-8500 Plus Inherited from the Original
Since the Infinity IT-8500 Plus still carries the name of its original version, it also brings with it some of its functions. So what you loved about the old will also be available for use on top of the exciting new features that the Plus offers.
S-Track & Body Scan Technology
The IT-8500 Plus retains its ability to scan your body in order to adapt the massaging movements to your body’s build. And like the original, this massage chair can accommodate a height range of up to 6 foot 6. Additionally, the S-Track Technology allows the chair to form the natural shape of the spine. Therefore, as you receive your regular massages, your spine is slowly being realigned to its normal condition.
Probably one of the favorites of many massage chair owners, the Plus is included with the original’s Lumbar Heat function. As many know, heat has the fantastic ability to relax muscles quickly, therefore helping your lower back muscles feel at ease, including from aches and pains.
The Total Sole Reflexology Foot Massage function is a wonderful feature that mimics reflexology techniques. In addition to the traditional massage techniques being applied throughout your body, your feet will receive pin-pointed massages from the foot rollers installed. The specific points in your feet are purposely targeted so that the connections from these pressure points can produce positive effects on the rest of the body.
This might not be a welcome function for those who are easily ticklish, but it is undoubtedly an appreciated function for those who have experienced the incredible techniques and benefits of reflexology before.
The Infinity IT-8500 Plus massage chair is indeed an upgrade to its original version. With great new functions, including an LCD remote control, it won’t be a surprise if you’re tempted to purchase this amazing piece of machinery. So if you’ve always wanted your own popular IT-8500, then you may as well get yourself the Infinity IT-8500 Plus.
