The WholeBody 7.1 massage chair looks very similar to the 5.1 because it is the new and improved model of the chair. It has an inviting modern design that will fit better in a room than many other massage chairs would.

There are five preset massage programs (Full, Upper, Lower, Relax, and Sleep) that use a variety of techniques including stretch, flex, tone, and glide. There is heat in the form of Human Touch’s unique patented warm air technology.

The chair does offer BodyMap PRO to help you get a massage targeted to specific areas on your body. It uses 3D FlexGlide along an S-track for a deeply relaxing massage without friction or pinching. It aims to replicate a smooth massage from human hands. In the retractable ottoman, there are paddles that operate in a figure-8 pattern for foot and calf massage.
