Human Touch Novo XT2 Massage Chair Review (Relief For Tight Muscles)
We've sat in, reclined to zero-gravity, and cycled through all the Novo XT2's massage settings, all so we could bring you our thoughts on the Novo XT2.
It's a hard life but somebody has to do it.
Here's our review of the Human Touch Novo XT2.
Human Touch Novo XT2 Review
The Human Touch Novo XT2 is packed full of features that are designed to deliver pain-relieving therapeutic massages at the touch of a button.
Its ergonomic design and ease of use make this massage chair a delight to use.
Here's a look at the Human Touch Novo chair's best features.
Long Massage Track
The Novo XT2 massage chair has become well-known for its long 50-inch massage track. In fact, its massage coverage is so long, the Novo's massage track suits users that stand at a height of between 5'-6'9".
The addition of a massage track of this length will be appreciated by many short and taller users. Many times, a massage chair's shoulder airbags are too high for a shorter person. While, on the other hand, taller users usually feel part of their backs is missed. And often find themselves slouching in a massage chair so as the rollers can work along the entirety of their spine.
Thankfully, users are unlikely to have these problems with the Novo XT2. A 50-inch massage track is sure to keep just about anybody happy.
Wide Range of Adjustable Intensity Settings
The Novo possesses a wide range of preprogrammed deep tissue massage intensity settings that are sure to keep users super satisfied.
Here's a quick look at some of the best ones we tried out:
- Awake - An invigorating massage to shake the morning stiffness and get you moving.
- Demo - A sample run-through of all the massage intensity settings and what they have to offer.
- Energize - A pick-me-up massage for when you are feeling flat or lacking energy.
- Performance - A deep tissue airbag-based massage.
- Recovery - The perfect massage to recover from a strenuous workout.
3D Massage Quad Rollers and Hybrid L/S-Track
For a complete and compression massage, the Novo massage chair possesses quad rollers with 3D massage technology.
Quad rollers have now become an industry standard and the inclusion of these in the Novo XT2's design has boosted it into this next level of massage chair status. Couple quad rollers with 3D technology that works along with both an L and S massage track and you've got the perfect combination to relieve even the tightest and sorest muscles.
And to add to this even further, the 3D rollers go to an impressive depth of up to 3-inches, making for a deeper, comprehensive, and satisfying massage.
Zero Gravity Massage
A comprehensive massage simply isn't defined by a lengthy massage track and a wide range of pre-set intensity settings. That's where the Novo’s zero-gravity seating really takes its massage experience to the next level.
The Novo XT massage chair's zero-gravity reclinable position brings user's knees above their hearts, helping to increase blood circulation, lower blood pressure, and flush painful lactic acid build-up.
Calf and Foot Massager
Another great addition to the many features of the Novo is its integrated calf and foot massager. This feature is delivered by a combination of airbags and dual rollers that are located in the Novo XT2 massage chair's footwells and leg ports.
Another integral feature of any good massage chair is the addition of lumbar heat. Heat therapy, such as that delivered by the Novo XT2's, is great for increasing blood flow and relieving those pesky lower back muscles that are such a problem for so many people.
