Between the release of several new and upgraded massage chairs and the approaching move to our new and improved world headquarters, it’s been an exciting year for Infinity Massage Chairs thus far. Here’s a recap on our product releases, in case you’ve missed anything!
New Infinity Massage Chair Releases
Infinity added two all-new and affordable chairs to our product selection earlier this year, the Escape and the Evoke.
Our most affordable L-track massage chair yet, the Infinity Escape includes our signature 47″ roller track that massages from your neck all the way through your glutes.
The Escape was also designed with the features indicative of a high-quality massage chair:
Deep Tissue Massage
Spinal Correction / Stretching
Offering luxury relaxation at less-than-luxury pricing, the Escape has quickly become a favorite among Infinity customers.
Currently the lowest priced chair in the Infinity fleet, the Evoke offers all the necessary comforts in a sleek, affordable chair. Get more for your money with stand-by features, including:
Deep Tissue Massage
Full-body Airbag System
The Evoke is one of the most cost-effective full-body massage chairs on the market, with everything you need to enjoy the ultimate massage time and again.
Infinity Massage Chair Upgrades
Two Infinity top-sellers also got serious upgrades this year: the Riage X3 and the IT-8500X3. Both massage chair models now include 3D technology, allowing users to adjust the depth of the rollers so they can enjoy a range of massage intensities. This makes these chairs suitable for any home, even if one family member enjoys a powerful deep tissue massage and another prefers a light rub-down.
The mobile app available for the Riage on Android® and Apple® devices has also been adjusted to include the 3D features. Additionally, there is now a mobile app available for use with the IT-8500X3. Apple users can find either the Riage X3 or the IT-8500X3 app on the App Store, while Android users are welcome to contact our technical support for the download file. It’s easier than ever to personalize your massage from the palm of your hand with our Infinity Massage Chair apps!
That wraps up our recap for the first two-thirds of 2016, but stay tuned for more from Infinity this fall and in the coming holiday season!
Do you suffer from chronic pain caused by fibromyalgia? You’re not alone—in fact, scientists estimate that fibromyalgia affects 5 million Americans age 18 or older. Between 80 and 90 percent of people diagnosed with this musculoskeletal condition are women, although men and children can also have this disorder.
With the help of massage therapy, however, fibromyalgia patients can enjoy significant relief.
“Massage can bring a lot of benefits to fibromyalgia patients in terms of alleviating the pain and discomfort associated with the condition,” says Salifou N. Bishop, a licensed clinical massage therapist at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore who treats people with fibromyalgia.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia syndrome is a group of signs and symptoms that include chronic pain in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues. It is one of a collection of chronic disorders that often go hand-in-hand. Chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, sleep disorders, and several other chronic conditions often accompany fibromyalgia.
How Does Massage Benefit Fibromyalgia Patients?
Many fibromyalgia patients are choosing massage therapy as a complementary treatment, and with good reason! The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine states that up to 91 percent of people with fibromyalgia use some form of complementary and alternative medicine, and up to 75 percent use massage therapy.
Research indicates that massage therapy can benefit fibromyalgia sufferers in the following ways:
Improve health status
Improve quality of life
Increase sleep hours
Improve quality of sleep over time
Reduce tender points
Decrease urinary CRF-LI (a biochemical marker of stress-related symptoms)
Decrease use of analgesics
Decrease cortisol levels
Be effective in an integrative treatment plan
Additionally, massage releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers!
Best Types of Massage for Fibromyalgia Pain
The following forms of massage therapy have been found to be most beneficial for fibromyalgia patients:
Trigger point therapy: Targets painful spots located in bands of muscle fibers, something people with fibromyalgia have more of.
Swedish massage: Combines kneading, gliding/sliding, beating, and friction techniques to promote circulation to nutrition-deprived parts of the body.
Myofascial release: Involves applying gentle, sustaining pressure into connective tissue, therefore eliminating pain and restoring motion by elongating muscle fibers.
Hot stone massage: Places heated, smooth, flat stones on key points of the body to use them as massage tools.
Passive stretching: Exerts an external force on a limb to move it into a new position, thus loosening up stiff muscles and joints caused by fibromyalgia.
Sports massage: Alleviates stress and tension built up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity, reduces heart rate and blood pressure, increases circulation and lymph flow, improves flexibility, and can help relieve fibromyalgia pain.
Always be sure to consult your doctor prior to getting massage for fibromyalgia pain relief. Your physician can recommend the best type of massage based on the severity of your condition, that way you can get the most from it.
Once you receive the go-ahead, call Infinity Massage Chairs at 603-347-6006 to discuss your options! We can help you find the perfect massage chair to help you relieve fibromyalgia pain in the comfort of your own home. Plus, since it is typically recommended that fibromyalgia patients receive frequent massage therapy, having your own massage chair will provide you with convenient relief.

We all have different needs when it comes to getting a massage, and there are many massage techniques to treat those needs. Before you lean back and let your massage chair do the work, here are some of the most common techniques and why you should use each one.
An increasing number of studies show the dangers of dealing with excess stress and anxiety. High levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, can weaken the immune system and increase blood pressure. Massage combats the negative effects of stress by boosting serotonin (a feel-good relaxation hormone that regulates sleep) levels and lowering blood pressure and heart rate.
Go with a Swedish massage when you need a good chill sesh or a solid night’s sleep. The slow, rolling movements of Swedish massage works quickly to relax you. Try enjoying your Swedish massage toward the end of the day to maximize sleep results.
Deep Tissue Massage
If you have a desk job that keeps you sitting still for long periods, you probably experience daily muscle tightness. Those who have had past injuries leaving them with significant scar tissue in the muscles may also have tightness. Sitting in one position for 20 minutes causes your muscles to tighten and “mold.” A deep tissue massage, however, can effectively relieve severe muscle tension and improve your posture.
A deep tissue or myofascial massage targets the shoulders, hips, ankles, wrists, and mid-back. These areas tend to get tightest from typical overuse or seated inactivity. It also increases your mobility by breaking up adhesions and reducing scar tissue in stiff muscles, thus letting you get back to your normal lifestyle doing the activities you love.
We already know our muscles can hold painful tension, but what does that do to our nerves? Tight muscles also put pressure on the nerves and blood vessels, causing even more pain.
Shiatsu or trigger point massage therapy applies pressure to points of tension in the joints of your body. This technique sends a message to the area that is radiating pain to release the muscle. Because the Shiatsu method relieves tension by applying pressure to acupuncture points, it is best for those who can endure slight discomfort during the massage. Despite the firmness, however, your muscles will feel relaxed and you typically will not experience soreness afterwards.
Are you suffering from tension headaches? Perhaps you want to improve your digestion? Then consider a reflexology massage. Reflexology is a massage technique that focuses primarily on the feet. It is not, however, simply a foot massage. The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are “reflex” areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body.
Tips of the toes correlate to the head
Ball of the foot correlates to the heart and chest
Arch of the foot correlates to the liver, pancreas, and kidney
Heel correlates to the lower back and intestines
It is believed that the pressure sends signals that balance the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce pain and stress. People often get reflexology massages for conditions like:
Stress and stress-related conditions
Menstrual disorders, like premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Digestive problems, such as constipation
Regardless of your reason for getting a massage, there is a technique for what you need. If you do have a pre-existing condition or injury, be sure to consult your physician prior to trying any form of massage. Once the doctor gives you the go ahead, remember than many Infinity Massage Chairs include combinations of these techniques so that you can enjoy the perfect massage! Call us today at 603-347-6006 to learn more.
Those looking for a massage chair that will fit in seamlessly with the style of their home will find it in the Infinity IT-9800. This distinguished chair is popular because of its sleek, upscale appearance, and complements any décor. This high-quality chair is entirely upholstered in durable, 100% genuine leather.
The IT-9800 also offers a variety of colors, so you’ll have no problem finding the color that best suits your style. Choose from:
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:
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!
The Infinity Iyashi and IT-8500 are our two top chairs, which leaves many massage chair buyers questioning: Which is the chair for me? Check out our infographic below comparing these two great chairs to help you make a decision!

Every massage chair buyer has unique needs and preferences, and among those is massage chair intensity. The strength of massage you are looking for is one of the most important determinations to make in the shopping process.
Different Massage Chair Strengths
The strength of a massage chair depends on the number of motors within the chair. More powerful massage chairs are built with a higher number of motors. Many high-quality chairs are now designed with adjustable strength settings. This gives you more options to increase intensity as your body grows accustomed to the massage chair, and will make your chair more beneficial in the long run.
Additionally, a lot of massage chairs come with removable padding, which provides you with another way to customize your massage strength over time. If you are a new massage chair owner and you’re still getting used to your chair’s intensity, you can place a blanket on the back to add extra padding.
