Panasonic EP-30007 Review
by Massage Chair Expert on Mar 24, 2021
Panasonic has been developing Massage Chair technology since the late 1960s. They have become experts in providing the most lifelike massage experience and have dubbed these advances as the Real Pro Ultra experience. The Real Pro Ultra features focus on providing an experience that a person would have if they were to visit a professional massage therapist, through customization and a wide variety of advanced techniques. Every person we have spoken with that uses or owns this chair speaks highly of to the gentle but firm lifelike massage. We also speak with people who have own Panasonic massage chairs and how they work great, even after 10 years of use.
High Quality Manufacturing
The Panasonic EP-30007 is designed in Japan and built in China. Japan being notorious for developing the most cutting edge technology has built their EP-30007 with home grown innovation and overseas components. This chair includes their most innovative features. These include Body Scan, Quad Style Rollers, and their one of a kind Junetsu Massage.
3D Body Scan Technology
The 3D body scan takes a virtual map of the users body, recognizing the shape of the spine, width of the back, and any sensitive points that need special attention. It uses this information to provide the user with a unique and customized experience. Panasonic understands that we are not all built the same and the body scan ensures that we get the therapy we need by measuring our acupoints. Acupoints are points on the body that are most effective for relaxation and relief. They target the natural energy flow and the scan recognizes these areas around the spine, the neck, lower back, and different parts of our arms and legs.
The Quad-Rollers focuses on giving a user a multitude of massage techniques. These also vary in degree and pressure and provide Swedish, Shiatsu, Kneading, Grasping, Tapping, Rolling, and Junetsu. The Quad-Rollers act like a human hand being able to squeeze and grasp. This directly helps people who carry tension in their shoulders and lower back, with the rollers able to work out deep knots. It is also good to know that these can vary in strength for a light or intense experience. The Junetsu style is unique to Panasonic Real-Pro Ultra products in offering ultra-fine kneading. This sensation is very similar to someone using their thumb to press in a small circular pattern. The Rollers can also move in Three Dimensions. This better orchestrates a thorough massage by moving up and down, side to side, and back and forth. All tailored to the uniqueness of the curvature of the human back.
Another important attribute of the Panasonic EP-30007 is its customization. You can change the time duration of the massage, the time of each method individually, where you want to focus, the width and range of the roller, the intensity of the airbags, and you can even remove the reflexology components in the feet. This allows you to get a deep foot massage or a relaxing airbag massage on the feet.
An overlooked feature is the leg stretch, which extends the lower portion of the body to relieve tightness and lower back pain. It does this by holding your legs in the footrest, reclining the chair, and raising and lowering the footrest. It helps increase the blood flow to the thighs, lower back, buttocks, and legs in general.
Panasonic also provides an extensive manufacturer warranty covering their chairs for a total of five years. This includes three years of in-home service and five years of parts, including replacement or repair. They also include a 1,000 hour cap on their warranty which equals to one 15 minute massage a day for 11 years.
Panasonic is well known for creating great products and the EP-30007 is a testament to that. Designed in Japan and Manufactured in China this is one of Panasonic top-of-the-line Massage Chair, designed for the Massage Chair Aficionados of the world.
