Zero Gravity Massage Chair – Well, let’s start with what exactly is zero gravity? Zero Gravity is often called Zero-G. It is characterized as a state of weightlessness. It’s the complete absence or close to the complete absence of weight. As for weight, it is merely the measurement of the amount of force on an object that’s at rest in a strong gravitational field. An example would be Earth’s surface. These weight-sensations begin from having contact with things like supporting seats and floors. The sensation of weight is additionally created, regardless if the gravitational field is zero.
Zero gravity, a state of weightlessness or position, which had originated with NASA. Just before a mission the Astronauts are seated strapped down in their seats. On lift-off they experience the zero gravity effect that places them in a reclined and weightless position.
The Astronauts go through intense & sudden surges in gravity when lifting off into outer space. A good thing about the zero gravity position is it will protect their bodies against intense stress which happens during that kind of gravitational force. When they are reclined in the zero gravity position, that intensive distress that occurs during lift-off will be safely distributed evenly across their bodies.
Many massage chairs are developed to provide an array of healthy advantages. The zero gravity position is targeted on abating stress in order to increase relaxation. This is an essential feature that every massage chair should have. When sitting in a massage chair that has the zero gravity feature, your upper body is reclined, while your feet get raised up off the floor.

Osaki OS-4000T Massage Chair
The Osaki OS-4000T Massage Chair is another chair that is considered a Zero Gravity Massage Chair. One great benefit is they offer free shipping on all their massage chairs.
When it comes to Massage Chairs the Osaki line is one of my top favorites. This is actually one of my fav’s. Yes, it does cost a little more than the two prior massage chairs. But with this chair you get great quality at a very reasonable price. On average, massage chairs range from three hundred dollars to twenty thousand plus dollars.
2-Stage Zero Gravity Massage Chair
When you are in the Zero Gravity reclining position, your legs will be lifted above your heart. The chair will evenly spread your weight throughout the chair. The zero gravity position will help to relieve pressure on your spine. Which is a major plus for me with my lower back issues. In addition, you will feel any tense muscles in your neck and back dissipate. Not to mention, it will help to correct spinal alignment problems. It will increase your blood oxygen levels and circulation along with expanding your lung capacity.
S-Track Movable Intelligent Massage
The OS-4000T is equipped with quad-style massage rollers located in the backrest of this chair. The S-Track was created to follow the curve of your spine while massaging your body consistently. Commonly, many massage chairs are built with a straight track that focuses an intense massage on the middle area of your back. However, it does not do a good job on your lower back or neck areas. The S-Track provides an encompassing massage. “Human-like” hands will work to sooth your neck, shoulders, and lumbar areas.
Hi-Tech Computer Body Scan Technology
The OS-4000T will scan your entire body before you begin your massage. It collects the body scan data and uses that to give you a customized massage. The built-in rollers will outline the curvature of your back. Presenting you with a nearly pin-point accurate massage. In addition, you have the option of making micro adjustments. That will allow you to tweak it as needed.
Seven Auto Programs
You have seven pre programmed auto settings to choose from. Those include: Demo, Thai, Muscle Relief, Anti-Stress, Stretching, Lumbar/Back and Neck/Shoulder.
Six Manual Modes
Create your own custom massage and choose from several massage roller techniques, including Shiatsu, Swedish, Kneading, Clapping, Rolling, and Combo mode.
New Foot Roller Technology
Reflexology technology is used on the pressure points of your feet. There are mechanical rollers that spin on the underside of your feet. Those foot rollers help with your circulation and relieve any tension. This feature is a new addition to this model.
The OS-4000T has 38 airbags strategically placed throughout the chair. They are filled with air and wrap around the areas of your body that the S-Track roller system is unable to reach. The airbags will massage your neck and head, the outsides of your shoulders, all the way down your arms, your waist and hips, calves, buttocks, hamstrings, and feet. You have the option of choosing from 5 intensity levels. No matter what type of massage you need it will deliver!
The vibrating seat will massage your thighs and buttocks while seated. It relaxes your muscles and relieves any tension that might have built up during your day.
The OS-4000T features their new upholstery design. Along with their updated synthetic leather material. It is much more durable than its previous model. You can get the Osaki OS-4000T massage chair in an array of colors to match your interior. Those colors include: black & beige, brown, charcoal, and cream.
Lumbar/Lower Back Heat Therapy
Built-in heating pads provide welcoming relief to lower back pain. I have been dealing with chronic lower back pain for years. Heat not only helps with pain but it dilates blood vessels increasing blood flow.
You get two remotes in one. On the top right side of the main remote there is a compact wireless remote. That remote will allow you to control the main features of the chair. If you are in a reclining like in the “zero gravity” position. You will not have to worry about stretching for the main remote.
