This inversion therapy massage chair has numerous pain relieving benefits from your neck to your lower back.

The Infinity IT-8500 offers two stages of zero gravity which raise your legs above your heart to promote better circulation and minimize gravities influence on your spine and joints, which allows them to more easily decompress. This home massage chair can cause a feeling of weightlessness in some people.
Through the Tru-Grip V Stretch program you can improve your posture with each use. By intelligent use of the airbag system combined with the back massage roller, this inversion therapy massage chair grabs you and stretches out the muscles along your spine to relieve tension and promote a straighter spine.
The seat swivels your hips from side to side in a twisting motion in an effort to stretch the lower back and hip muscles. This movement is designed to loosen up tension in the lower back and hip area that cause lower back pain. This feature has 3 levels of adjustable speed so you can find the perfect motion for you, and is available at the push of a button, or can be used by itself.
Optical Body Scanning Technology
Every time you start a massage program in the Infinity IT-8500, the massage rollers glide up your back so that they can generate a map of your unique shape and curvature. This allows the inversion therapy massage chair to better personalize the massage for virtually any body type, and ensures that the rollers massage all of the right muscles. This has become a staple in modern massage chairs so that every user can receive a personalized massage with every use.
Quad Style Massage Roller
The IT-8500’s massage roller features four massage heads that are designed to mimic the motion and feel of a human hand. There three levels of adjustment for the width of your massage, as well as 6 adjustable levels for the speed. This style of massage roller is pretty advanced and is becoming a staple in most modern massage chairs.
30” S-Style Massage Track
An ‘S’ Style massage track is designed to more accurately mimic the curvature of the human spine. This allows the massage roller to provide a much more uniform massage across the entire back, including often neglected areas such as the lower back, and the upper shoulder areas. At 30” long this massage track makes the massage the IT8500 provides ideal for users 5’1” to 6’4” in height.
Elaborate Airbag Massage System
38 airbags are strategically placed throughout the massage chair to provide a compression massage to your hands, arms, legs, shoulders and feet. This airbag system is the basis for almost all of the stretching programs in the IT 8500. The airbag system works in tandem with the back and foot massage rollers as well. By inflating in the shoulder, lower back and foot area, these areas are pressed against the massage rollers allowing them to access deeper tissue than they previously would have been able to.
Heat Therapy in Lumbar
Heat therapy is a quick way to loosen up muscles. Two heating elements have been placed in the lumbar of the backrest to help loosen up the large muscle groups in the area. This home massage chair allows your back massage and stretch programs to be even more effective, and greatly improves the benefit you receive from your massage.
Massage Rollers for your Feet
Massage rollers built into the leg rest for the soles of your feet deliver a vigorous and relaxing reflexology massage that targets accupoints across the bottom of your foot. There are three massage rollers in each foot rest, that have three levels of adjustable speed to suit your personal tastes.
