Simple Guide to 2D vs 3D vs 4D Massage Chairs
(Article last updated on July 2022)
2D massage chairs offer an enjoyable massage at an affordable price. You should consider 3D massage if you want to be able to adjust the intensity up to deep tissue massage. 4D massage offers even better massage quality by allowing the rollers to move in a more natural rhythm.
2D is what you picture as your traditional back roller massage. The massage rollers move in two dimensions, up and down from your neck to your lower back, and they can also move side to side. This basic movement is effective, feels great and provides much of the benefits of massage, including alleviating back pain, easing sore muscles, to relieving stress and improving natural health and wellness.

3D massage feels much more like a human masseuse hands than 2D massage. Not only can it move up and down and side to side, the rollers can also push out further into your back as well. 3D massage chairs are very popular nowadays because of this additional dimension where the rollers can push much further out to provide extra intensity on the massage. Most high quality ideal massage chairs offer up to 5 inches of additional intensity range, meaning the rollers can push further into your back 5 inches further than a traditional 2D massage chair.
Another benefit to 3D massage is that you can also reduce the intensity to make it very, very gentle. This wide range of adjustable intensity is very popular in households where more than one user will be using the chair. This is because every user can find the appropriate intensity level to be comfortable for them.This is where you can determine the best deep tissue massager in the market.

4D massage chairs do everything that 3D massage chairs do in terms of motion. The rollers will also go up and down, side to side and back and forth. 4D takes this a step further, by adding a 4th dimension to its massage movement technology which is that it also adjusts speed.
With guidance from professional holistic massage therapists, 4D massage movements were crafted to add variations of speed to each style of massage. Much like the time-tested traditions of Japanese massage, the hands of the masseurs slow down or speed up, even pause to apply attention and pressure to tight muscles, into the areas of your back that need it the most.
