Review of the Human Touch HT-7120 Massage Chair
By Alan Weidner

Are you looking for that special chair that will warmly embrace your body after a hard day of work? Looking for a chair that will welcome you home and reward you with a human touch that knows every inch of your body and what it needs? I introduce to you the Human Touch 7120.

The HT-7120 massage chair is an "upgrade", if you will, from the HT-125/135/136 model series. It has the lumbar heat, adjustable massage intensity, and calf width adjustment, which I will go into greater detail later in this article.

The Human Touch 7120 massage chair resembles a comfortable office chair with concealed features. At the bottom of the massage chair is a rotating calf and foot massager that offers restorative relief to weary and aching muscles. Included in this feature are two fifteen minute programs that offer a gentle or intense foot and calf massage that demonstrates the squeeze and release techniques of a live massage therapist. Calf pain is the most common complaint from folks using a massage chair. Human Touch has added a width adjustment to deal with this issue. A simple press of a button on the ottoman will set the width at just the right comfort level for any body size/type.

My favorite feature of this massage chair is the lumbar heater that soothes the lower back muscles which is followed by remedial massage which imitates the techniques of a massage therapist. This gentle warming sensation provided by the chair gradually reduces soreness and tightness. I feel that every massage chair should have a heat feature of some sort, particularly in the lower back, where most folks have some pain. With the ergonomic hand control you can adjust the intensity or gentleness of your massage with 7 different levels of intensity.

No massage chair is complete without a reclining feature. With the full stretch body mode, the foot and calf massagers hold your legs as the chair slowly eases back. The recliner feature allows you to stretch your spine which increases blood flow to the vertebrae and disks which allows rejuvenation for the lower back. To ensure that you are comfortable when reclining, the HT 7120 tilts back to a 170 degree angle to guarantee comfort. To heighten your massage experience, there is a cushion head pillow that allows additional comfort during your massage.

For convenience, there is an outlet on the side of the chair that allows an easy reach for you to plug in your leather miracle into any outlet nearby. Also, on the side of the chair is a recline lever that permits you to adjust how far back you would like to adjust the chair. In addition to the lever and outlet, there is a pocket for your remote control, so there is no excuse for loosing it!

The only drawbacks to this model, as I see it, is that there is no true foot massager as part of the ottoman and the massage is not quite as smooth as some of the more higher priced massage chairs. But, for the list price, it is an exceptional bang for your buck.

You can choose from black or brown leather, but it won't matter what color it is once this chair seduces you with its human-like qualities. With luxurious leather upholstery, the Human Touch 7120 proves itself to be more than just a massage chair.
