Standout Features of the IT-9800
The IT-9800 is a distinct chair not only because of its appearance, but also because of its state-of-the-art features.
Inversion Therapy & Zero Gravity Positions
Among the IT-9800’s 8 therapeutic recline technologies are both Inversion and Zero Gravity positions. The zero gravity position elevates your legs above your heart and reclines your body to help relieve pressure from head to toe. You’ll experience a sense of weightlessness like that which astronauts feel in space. The design relieves the body of pressures caused by maintaining an upright position, allowing for total decompression and improved circulation.
The IT-9800 is one of the only massage chairs on the market to offer inversion therapy. Inversion therapy puts gravity to work by placing your body in line with the downward force of gravity. By using your body’s weight as a natural means of traction, inversion lengthens the spine, relieves pressure, and decompresses your joints. Less pressure means less back pain.
The full list of relaxing recline programs includes:
- Zero Gravity
- Lumbar Stretch
- Bed Position
- Leg Recliner
- Back Recliner
- Rocking Motion
Infrared Heat Function
The Infinity IT-9800 is one of few massage chairs in the industry that offers infrared heat. Infrared heat, or radiant heat, as it is also called, is more therapeutic and effective than conventional heat because it directly heats your body, rather than just warming the air around you. The IT-9800’s infrared heat system is located in the lumbar region to loosen and prepare your muscles for the massage. It also includes 3 levels of heat, offering another way to customize your massage for the ultimate comfort.
Calf Massage Rollers
Are you athletic? Then you’ve likely experienced some pain or possible injuries in your calf muscles, ankles, or feet.
The IT-9800’s calf massage can help to speed up healing and prevent injuries in active people. While most massage chairs include only airbags in the calf region, the IT-9800 features actual rollers for a more effective massage to your lower extremities. Massage to your calf muscles will also help improve your systemic circulation because it promotes the return of venous blood to the heart.
With the elegant style and unique features of the Infinity IT-9800 massage chair, you won’t be disappointed. Call us today at 603-347-6006 with any additional questions—or if you are ready to settle into this cutting-edge massage chair!

When was the last time you had a full night (as in 8 consistent hours) of sleep? As we are probably all aware, chronic insomnia causes extreme fatigue and problems with concentration, and can negatively impact our mood and well-being.
Ralph Pascualy, MD, medical director of the Swedish Sleep Medicine Institute (SSMI) in Seattle, states that both the quantity and the quality of one’s sleep directly affects his or her health. No matter what’s causing your insomnia, massage can help. Read on to find out how!
Massage and Serotonin Levels
It comes down to one simple fact: Insomnia is associated with a lack of serotonin, while massage increases serotonin levels.
Serotonin is a highly important neurotransmitter that is essential to our survival. Aside from sleep, serotonin affects our mood, behavior, body temperature, physical coordination, and appetite. Serotonin can also be converted by the brain into melatonin, a hormone that quiets and resets the part of the brain that prepares our bodies for sleep.
A January 2000 study on back pain demonstrated that in addition to a decrease in long-term pain, subjects receiving massage experienced improved sleep and increased serotonin levels.
Massage for Pain and Other Chronic Issues
In addition to insomnia-related stress, according to the Mayo Clinic, studies have found massage to be beneficial to those who suffer from:
- Digestive disorders
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Paresthesias and nerve pain
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Temporomandibular joint pain
Research gathered by the American Massage Therapy Association has also been shown to improve sleep in individuals with psychiatric disorders, fibromyalgia, cancer, heart disease, lower back pain, cerebral palsy, and breast disease.
According to Ann Williams, director of education, Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, and author of Spa Bodywork and teaching massage, “Massage helps people spend more time in deep sleep, the restorative stage in which the body barely moves, which reduces the neurotransmitter associated with pain.”
Types of Massage to Improve Sleep
Four of the most common massage styles can help improve sleep:
- Swedish Massage: Gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping to help relax and energize
- Deep Tissue Massage: Uses slower, stronger strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, often to help with muscle damage from injuries
- Sports Massage: Similar to Swedish massage, but geared toward those involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries
- Trigger Point Massage: Focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in muscles after injuries or overuse
Many high-end massage chairs include a combination of these massage styles to deliver the most customizable massage possible. When you enjoy your own customized massage daily, you will experience less pain, which in turn will help you sleep more soundly.
A decrease in stress, tension, and pain and improved sleep work hand-in-hand, so experience heightened overall well-being with your very own Infinity Massage Chair. Call us at 603-347-6006 to learn more today!
