Review of Panasonic Real Pro Elite EP3222 Shiatsu Massage Chair

The subject of this review is the Panasonic Real Pro Elite model EP-3222. This is one of the high end luxury massage loungers in the Panasonic line. Panasonic is one of the leaders in the development of mechanical massage therapies. We will evaluate some of the advanced features and function of the EP 3222. Let us delve into our review of this Panasonic massage chair.
Massage chairs are complex machines that use both computer electronics and mechanical systems to deliver effective massage therapy. Like any complex product, you want to protect yourself from defects in materials or workmanship. Although, it is unlikely you will have a problem, it is always better to be protected so you do not have to worry later if something were to happen.
What is the warranty coverage of the EP-3222 massage chair? Panasonic provides coverage in the following areas: 3 years parts are covered, 1 year labor is also covered. Panasonic also offers in home technician service. This is covered for the first 90 days after the purchase. This warranty is a little light compared with other manufacturers in this class.
Panasonic integrates some fancy technology to truly customize the massage for each user. When starting an automatic program, the massage chair performs a body scan. The EP 3222 makes a virtual map of your back. It locates your acupressure points. This is then inputted into the chair's computer and the program then focuses on stimulating your individual acupressure points during the course of the massage.
Panasonic has gone to great lengths to study and replicate the actual hand movements of massage therapists. The result is a floating massage mechanism to mimic the hands of a therapist. This mechanism has firm rubber massage heads. These massage heads replicate hand movements like pressing with the thumbs or the heel of the hand.
How about the massage treatments in the EP-3222? There are plenty of treatments for the most demanding massage requirements. You will find 11 basic massage modes in the EP3222. They have designed 6 automatic massage programs. You can select from manual massage techniques like Swedish or Shiatsu. These programs are well designed and very effective in providing relief.
Do you need relief of the lower body? The EP-3222 delivers! Panasonic incorporates an air massage system with an incredible 33 air bags. Each air bag targets a specific muscle, so you get a tremendous coverage. The air massage system provides an effective compression massage technique. This provides a firm squeezing action. This squeezing action helps to soothe and relieve sore muscles.
Panasonic has an advanced remote control which enables you to exactly target where you want relief. Whether you choose to run an automatic program at the touch of a single button or you want to relieve a knotted muscle in your back, the Real Pro Elite provide the massage you want. Panasonic has included a voice guidance system which helps walk you through the steps of getting the perfect massage every time.
How about a great stretch? The EP-3222 Real Pro Elite comes with a stretch function for your legs. This function will elongate the muscles from the hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. This type of stretch is excellent to help improve your joint mobility and to increase your flexibility.
The Panasonic Real Pro Elite series has some other massage functions that we did not review like the Swede-Atsu that provides realistic feeling massage therapy. This is also incorporated in the EP3222 model. The massage therapies are good and the variety will enable you to get practically every type of ache, pain or tension relieved on demand. Our only concern with Panasonic is the short warranty on the labor. Other than that the EP 3222 is a solid massage chair and worthy of your further consideration.
